Beck had a local radio show here in Tampa on 970 for a couple of years before he hit the big time, great radio.

Yeah, I think he was better on that show.


Do you remember when he was cracking on the physic and she sued him? Classic

Beck is an actor - anyone that has listened to his radio show - he's no different than Phil Hendrie. If you believe Beck is passionate about anything he says, you're fooled. He's inflammatory for viewership, imo. 

Incorrect. 

Not an actor and passionate.

That's when I first heard him as well.

Yep!

And, the closest he would get to politics was where he'd play the part of Osama "addressing" his people!

Limbaugh, Olbermann, Beck... all shows like that are purely entertainment...  nothing more.

Likening Beck to Hendrie is heresy ..... Beck is a cult member buttclown.

Well, if by entertainment you mean shining the light on the left because they think they are so clever as to steal our rights and our power and give it to HIS constituency - without us knowing or doing something about it - yeah I guess you could simply focus on the entertainment value...but you'd be missing the point Snookster - with the way you have described your political views - you should give him another chance.

Beck has said repeatedly, that he never thought he would be a political commentator, he couldn't think of anything more boring than to listen to the banter of professional debators - that really didn't care about the positions they took so long as they got to keep the power it brought them.

Then something happened to him after 9-11, he recalled the way we spoke to each other, and the way we treated each other and how it seemed like America again - united by a horrific action which led to a resolve to do something about it...and he began to see the country the way the founding fathers saw the country.

Then the naysayers and political strategists attacked the spirit, told us not to be so judgmental and criticized the resolve and the action stemming from righting our standing in the world. Beck holds - as do I - that Americans should not EVER be expected to be the object of an attack by someone looking to tweak the nose of the sleeping giant - just so they could demonstrate the level of their hatred and attract others who hated us. We had become comfortable in our slumber and we were attacked in order to show the strength of the will of murdering extremists.

Then the guy that started out on the right course, began to give over to the big spending ways of congress, the lefty's, and his father. He then refused to strengthen the border.

And that's where Bush lost me, and many like me. Then the party pursued guys more liberal and bigger spenders than Bush had been - and at the risk of losing it all we said ENOUGH.

Beck began doing research about all of it, he is a very intelligent guy, attended Yale for awhile. He has researched the field of economics, regularly spends time with and interviews economists. He's presented his ideas to economic thinkers, that haven't always agreed with him - and for the past 2-3 years it's been Beck's ideas and forecasts that have been proven accurate. Many economists now agree with him about the cost of the debt Obama has rammed through will have an immediate impact on our economy that - unless changed - will cost us 80% of GDP by the end of 2012. That means that the cost to run the programs that Obama just rammed through (Tarp II, stimulus, and emergency spending) will account for 80% of everything we produce over the next 10 years...

Not to mention that Beck has illustrated how these 8 metro-plex areas elect our president:

1.) New York metro population - 19 million (total NY state population - 19.5 million - states total electoral delegates 31)

2.) Greater LA - population 12.8 million (total CA state population - 36.7 million - states total electoral delegates - 55)

3.) Chicagoland - population 9.5 million (total IL state population - 12.9 million - states total electoral delegates - 21)

4.) Philadelphia metro - population 5.8 million (total PA state population - 12.4 million - states total electoral delegates - 21)

5.) Metro Miami - 5.4 million population (total FL state population - 18.3 million - states total electoral delegates - 27)

6.) Metro Atlanta - 5.3 million population (total GA population - 9.6 million - states electoral delegates - 15)

7.) Greater Washington - 5.3 million population (total MD/DC population - 6.1 million - states electoral delegates - MD-10/DC-3)

8.) Greater Boston Metro - 4.5 million population (total Massachusetts population - 6.5 million states electoral delegates - 12)

Basically this translates very simply - by winning the population of just these 8 cities (67.6 million) against the balance of the each of those states population (128.8 million) lefty dem's control 195 delegates out of a required 270 to elect a president (72%).

Yet they have failed to do so consistently with the exception of '92 and '08. In order to beat the lefty's the other side has to win everything else (especially swing states like Florida). McCain was not able to pull the far right and he lost the core constituency - primarily because the R's forced a left leaning McSame on their party faithful at the very time when the right was strong enough to carry the vote - had we gotten a Romney/Palin who knows what might have happened?

We think that by creating a circumstance that forces large segments of the populations of certain mega-cities/swing states (i.e., those where the metro-plex centers are equal/less than 50% of the total population: Florida, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Maryland) more dependent on government (jobs, assistance, etc) they will cement their control over the executive and legislative which will ultimately yield the judicial...and Liberty is gone.

They require additional wealth destruction in order to choke-off economic recovery in the most populist metro plex areas and then re-distribute the wealth (via taxation) from those areas of the economy that ACTUALLY produce, to voters metro-areas with populations that do not.

The over-arching strategy is pretty simple:

By robbing Peter (the rich) to pay Paul (the poor) they can always count on (poor) Pauls vote...

So the answer for those (both ideoligically anti-American but also their fellow travelers - those too lazy to earn their votes the right way) who ascribe to this philosophy is to - make a lot of (poor) Pauls...

By controlling congress after the mid-term elections the lefty's can re-apportion all the voting districts further weakening the power base of conservatives - but even if they don't win the mid-term seats - they can limit federal funding to metro areas that don't fall in line with them causing discontent or population shifts.

Electioneering - it's why we need to leave the two established parties and register Independent - thouroughly frustrate the socialist agenda.
