Is the Glenn Beck program turning the corner?

Is the Glenn Beck program turning the corner?
 We are Americans and ours is best. Mr. Beck if you can please look at the preceding statement and see how we can fit it into today’s program. Education is definitively important; the thing that wasn’t mentioned is that for every engineer we need a bunch of technicians and for each technician a whole lot of workers. Not all of us need to be engineers but all of us need the access to the knowledge. The conversation about China was one sided, it was from a point of view of a profiteer and a speculator. “Who cares what color is the cat longest it catches mice,” very profound, “Massachusetts is more communist then China” If you are still wandering who sold out our America, don’t, you had them on the program today. There are six factor in the economic growth you mentioned only five; your guest alluded to the sixth, all but admitted to it, buying political power. I apologize for my cynicism but did anybody talk to the marginalized and disenfranchised Chinese worker before your genius friends come on to your program? You Glenn have mentioned central planning, do you know at what point does central planning starts for the individual? If you like to know that please replay. We are talking about person, individuals, not the collective, are we?

112 Congress

This new millennium is the beginning of The Dark Ages in western politics. We are desperately trying to stop and prevent the corruption of our financial markets. This unrelenting attempt of the greedy upper class and the politicians to feel safe and to stay in control of the money flow translates into We the People the middle class to lose our freedom. Little by little our playground is shrinking. From being talked out of a greasy cheeseburger, for fear of heart disease to having to give up the water bottle at the airport. There are wars and conflicts over natural resources around the world. The security is tight everywhere, there seems to be more government and municipal employees then there are private sector workers. Our America use to be called, the bread basket of the world, we have build the industry of the world, what happened? Who is it to be blamed?
The way that tobacco has build the early industry and later jeopardized our health, the same way the Wall Street has helped the growth of the economy and now is ruining the financial sector. It is so obvious and yet nobody is talking about the Wall Street in any specific terms. Who are the bee keepers, if there is a middle class there must be a lower and upper class to? The thing is that the talking points are given by the leaders and that by default is the upper class. There is much hope for the new Congress, talking heads in the popular media said so. The one thing that nobody is talking about is the last harvest. The one that happened at the end of the last administration, does anybody remember, what happened to the stock market? Instead, with the new Congress there is talk about planting seeds, about hard work and sacrifice, don’t kid yourselves my honey bees there will be a harvest again. Just as soon that there is some equity in our homes and some growth in our portfolios. The thing that we need to know is that “We the People” will be the ones that are being harvested again and again so please stash some honey, don’t let the bears find it. Remember that we have two basic freedoms, to produce and to consume, try not to consume everything. The Wall Street and the investment bankers are the bee keepers, it has very little to do with the administration being democrat or republican, drones are in charge of the bee hive. Don’t worry we’ll get some sugar water to get us through the winter, hopefully the spring will be early this year.

Lost freedom

With the New Year comes a new congress with new promises. Forget about the old. The new medical insurance coverage cards started arriving to. There is a magnetic strip on the back of it; every time we go to a clinic it will be swiped. The congress could try to repel the medical insurance mandate, they might even succeed but the privacy and freedom are gone for good. Our medical history and our diets are no longer a private matter. Most of us already have discount and preferred shopper card for every grocery store and pharmacy that we frequent. The new food safety regulation is welcomed by the unsuspecting. The preventive treatment is a requirement it will not be repelled. Doctors are enrolled into the health maintenance ideology, encouraged by the pharmaceutical companies and supported by FDA. Maintenance medications are being widely prescribed, in some cases mandated. How long will it take before the good doctor or the health insurance agent request to check on your diet? How many freedoms have we lost this far?
