It means you’ve been paying attention ! And you’re probably angry and tired of being called a RACIST !
….but it’s certainly turning my old liberal friends into “rabid left-wingnuts” !
For instance, Mean Janeane Garofalo and Mike “I hope Glenn Beck commits suicide” Malloy. What happened to my compassionate friends? No bleeding hearts here, they want to tear mine out and stomp on it. Is this how they see us?
Had enough? Then come up to speed by visiting this Stealth Fusion link which provides Glenn Beck’s show videos from last week and a transcript of all the questions he wants you to ask your representatives.
Allahpundit of Hot Air asks if “you’re in or out?” and muses if Beck could be tapping a possible third party leader……hmmmmmm?
Make your voice count and make sure your questions are answered ! Dissent isn’t only for liberals !
As my friends on the libby left are just giddy over punishing Beck and Fox News by forcing sponsors to take their money elsewhere, William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection tells us why we should be happy…..
1. The boycott will fail, as do virtually all boycotts.
2. The failure of the boycott will be a huge victory for freedom of speech.
3. The failure of the boycott will diminish the power of the boycotters.
4. The diminished power of the boycotters will empower grassroots opposition to health care restructuring and cap-and-trade.
5. The boycott reveals once again that many liberals are hypocrites who only want freedom for their speech.
6.The boycott reveals that the left-wing blogosphere is afraid of other voices being heard.
7. The boycott reminds us that large corporations are spineless in the face of liberal pressure groups.
8. The boycott reminds us also that we should not confuse large corporations with free markets or free enterprise or freedom.
9. The boycott will tell us whether Fox News has a spine.
10.The boycott is a reflection that Democrats have few positive arguments in support of their agenda and need to create enemies.
And from the comments section, you learn these little nuggets:
It probably took Geico .0000001 seconds to boycott Glenn. Geico is a subsidiary of Bershire Hathaway, owned by Warren Buffet (right on their home page) And the owner of Progressive was right behind. His political contributions include Moveon.org, America Coming Together, and The Democratic party. No arm twisting there.
Color of Change was co-founded by Van Jones, Obama’s green jobs czar. This boycott comes not long after Beck did some unflattering pieces about Van Jones. Plus, Color of Change has publicly declared that the boycott is in response to Beck’s criticism of Obama.
A group co-founded by by a czar within the Obama Admin. is boycotting a critic of the Obama Admin.
Not very cricket.
Had enough? Can you hear the people sing ?!
I sure can 🙂 See you at the 9-12-09 March on Washington and Glenn Beck recently announced he will be there with his team to make sure our voices are indeed heard with our spirit and unity seen!
Momentum is building with 6 weeks left, about 300 registrations daily are pouring in and, last I checked, there are still hotel rooms available near the National Mall at special Tea Party rates.

545 vs 300,000,000
EVERY CITIZEN NEEDS TO READ THIS AND THINK ABOUT WHAT THIS JOURNALIST HAS SCRIPTED IN THIS MESSAGE. READ IT AND THEN REALLY THINK ABOUT OUR CURRENT POLITICAL DEBACLE.
Charley Reese has been a journalist for 49 years.
This was written in 1985 and published in 1995. It is still pertinent and applicable today.
By Charlie Reese
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered; if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does.
You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.
If the Army &Marines are in IRAQ, It’s because they want them in IRAQ
If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people and they alone, are responsible.
They and they alone, have the power.
They and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.
Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.
We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

THINK THIS IS FUNNY? Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
