Someday Glenn Beck will realize his place in life and that he's just a talking head. Funny how he and others who say they are looking out for America chose to hold a rally on the anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech, on the very steps where Dr. King spoke, overshadowing the people there to honor Dr. King. Such hypocrisy knows no bounds.
I keep hearing from shallow-thinking people like Beck and Sarah Palin to "take back America!" That's very profound; too bad they lost it somewhere, and are trying to convince us now of, what? I wake up every day and know where America is; no one has taken it from me.
Be very careful of Tea Party activists and listen very closely to what they're saying; it's scary. Hitler, Lenin, Mao, etc., got their starts similarly: by frightening the public with half-truths and lies to serve self-serving agendas. Look at the outcome there.
Look how open the President George W. Bush era was. We sure gained freedoms then, didn't we? For example, let's just call it Homeland Security. Hmm, sounds a lot like "Fatherland," doesn't it? Bet you loved the bankruptcy of America show and the invasion of a sovereign nation. Yes, corrupt and evil, yet weapons of mass destruction? Those lies are still costing American lives, and let's not forget it's OK to eavesdrop by tapping private phones and by reading anyone's e-mails -- all in the name of homeland security.
Seems Beck and likeminded others loved the out-of-control health-care system, even though they were the loudest to scream how unfair it was. Now it's being reformed and they scream that the old system was just fine.
Freedoms haven't gone anyplace. America is right where it was left. If you open your eyes.
