Is Glen Beck an American Citizen?

Or, was he born offplanet?

He’s persona non grata at the
Vulcan Embassy — banned for emotional outbursts.

Both the Romulans and the Cardassians kicked him out of their secret police, because propaganda and coup d’etats etc, they are something you don’t see coming and Glen is too obvious.

The Borg spit him out of the collective. Too oogy to assimilate.

The Federation didn’t want him, because he was always going around to primitive planets, flouting the Prime Directive by selling The Plan to any old body who would pay for it.

And the Klingons have a hit out on him because he called the leader of the High Council a fascist progressive communist socialist…

Beck continues to step in it.

Evidently, Beck and O’Reilly are Ok with disabled and poor persons as slaves now….

Addiction, whether to drugs, booze or food, costs the country money.  That’s true. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day Glen, so I give the crazy guy one point….As someone struggling with weight on top of disabilities I got at birth, who now eats healthy but once did not…

If they banned junk food tomorow…

I wouldn’t see it as an attack on my liberties.

I’d be a happy camper.  For me, it’s my fix, and if they made it dissapear I’d be glad, not sad.

But…

It’s the “people on government assistance are slaves,” meme I have trouble with.

If I could not be on SSD right now…If I could be back working for a living…That would make my day too.

The fact that I can’t doesn’t give Glen Beck  the right to call the government or himself my overseer.  How would he like it if his special needs daughter ever needed to avail herself of that system?  Does he want her to be ‘enslaved,’ by the government?  I doubt it.

Glen, let’s use our brain and look at this in a broader sense.

He makes my day and goes off the rails as per usual…

So, all addicts (and that includes you, should you ever relapse, fella) should be shamed out of government help, or medical care in the ER.  Right Glen? Because that’s what you meant.  /sarcasm

This guy is going to have a breakdown at some point.

On national TV.

I want to be there when it happens.

Mr. Beck believes

March 12, 2010 at 4:08 AM (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

that his radio for talking to God is better than mine, than yours, than anyone else whose beliefs differ from his, or those who believe the whole notion of God may not be worth a darn.

I really never thought I’d be taking a pro-religion stance on anything, but here the frack goes:

Mr. Beck?  Before you encourage people who’ve already signed up for a belief system to ditch their local pew post haste if  their church works actively with poor and disadvantaged folk, under the idea of social justice…that that’s not a ‘real’ path to living out Christianity…..

[Don’t you wish these people that blow off like this would READ THE BOOK they claim to venerate?  I do.  More and more every day.  I knew there’d be a downside to searching out a church to worship in, and I’ve now found it.  It’s not the church doctrine, although that’s another can of beans,  it’s that I think believers in a certain text, whatever the text might be, should have to read, and attempt to comprehend the whole thing before they start braying about it.  And not just the parts they’re warm and fuzzy with either…even the parts they disagree with.]

The part about caring for ‘the least of these’ being one and the same as worshipping God.

The part about it being tough for rich folk to get to Heaven.

The part that says faith without works is dead.

The scholars that have said that if you identify as Christian, it is the words of Christ, and the rest of the  New Testament New Covenant that is your primary guide for how to live a worthy life.

The Old Testament is illustrative and important surely…

But if you’re a Christian and you throw out the words of Christ and the New Covenant….

Isn’t that a fundamental flaw?

I’m not attacking Beck’s Mormonism, so much as telling those who seek his opinion out to use the words of their defining books, and their religious advisers as their touchstone.  Trust those, and believe in those more than this modern day hybrid of Chicken Little/Elmer Gantry and John Birchers.

I’m pretty confident you don’t find ‘God’ in a personality.

And worshipping personalities only leads to disappointment.

I am remembering fellow Foxoid Brit Hume’s comment about Tiger Woods needing to become a Christian in order to get his life together…I’ve an odd image in my head:

Cartoon…Brit Hume shoving Tiger Woods through the door of a Christian Church that is secure in it’s adherence to social justice, and Beck, just inside the doors frantically shoving Tiger back the other way…

Before you watch this:

September 4, 2009 at 3:21 PM (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

Be over eighteen. Be somewhere to the left of McCain politically. Those who can drink I suggest you imbibe one of your faves before watching, and use the second to take a sip anytime you would normally say “WTF?”

Because the last time I made the kind of bizzare, World Net Daily, connective conspiracy tissue out of absolutely nothing that Glen Beck does it was fall 1991 and I was experiencing some truly scary and mindfcuking side effects from my chemo medication.

I admit, Olbermann goes a bit slobbering and wild eyed here. I admit that.

I also admit that I love the detail of this dissection.

And, Keith reminds me again he’s a sci fi geek. “Don’t get on that ship!”

Le Sigh.

Watch this and enjoy.
