    WOW. You are really think you know a lot more about this subject than you actually do. You are making false comparison after false comparison. The way pornography affects the brain is not comparable to chocolate, or even alcohol. Unless you are willing to spend some time actually learning about the subject before shooting your mouth off like an expert (and don’t say you already have, because your comments clearly show you have not), there is nothing more we can do for each other. Have a nice evening.

    There’s a difference. Like drugs and alcohol, pornography alters the brain chemistry. Study after study has shown that it warps a person’t sense of sexual morality. Guns do not in themselves change the way a person thinks.

    “Far more than 200 years?” So you think slavery ended BEFORE the Revolutionary War? Your grasp of history is as stunning as your bigotry.

    I don’t think it’s “anal” to point out that African Americans have not had 200 years to “pull themselves up”. In fact, they were still slaves 150 years ago. And for the first 50 years after emancipation they were treated as little more than slaves throughout most of the country, having few of the rights and almost none of the opportunities afforded to the rest of the population. And for the 50 years after that they were heavily persecuted in the Jim Crow south. Even in the north they faced tremendous racism. I come from a working class white family in Michigan, and I cringe at the stories I hear about the way blacks were treated all the way up here in the first half of the 20th century. So, rather than 200 years, they have had a little more than half a century of mostly equal civil rights. But, what’s the difference between 200 years and 50, right?

    Iamnotu- You keep shouting “200 years!”… You do know that the war of 1812 wasn’t the one that freed the slaves, right?

    WAIT, wait, wait… You’re saying someone will get all huffy and claim he wasn’t treated right, so he’ll go off and create a media company that will make all sorts of wild claims, attract a bunch of people, and use them to enrich himself?

    Kahanna- Except when listeners spend what little money they have to invest on Gold that loses value, they are NOT spending it on the investments that they needed to make to prepare for retirement. Remember, he was pushing gold to people who could only afford to buy fractions of an ounce! Remember the monthly payment plans he was pushing for a while? Not wealthy people who can afford to let their money sit in stagnant investments for years and years!

    Remember the mini-gold bars Glen was pushing a few months ago- so our KIDS could carry them around in case the dollar wasn’t accepted any more? Why is it that everything he tells us to do to “prepare” involves something one of his sponsors is pushing? I mean, seriously? Wallet-sized gold bars? Give me a break!

    Moi- Give me a break. Nobody says DON’T prepare! The difference is Glen has spent years telling us the apocalypse is a couple of months away. So, you need over-priced freeze-dried food that happens to be his sponsor! Preparing means buy some canned food, plant some fruit trees, learn to dehydrate food, etc. That’s not what Glen has been pushing, because there’s no money in that! BY ALL MEANS, be prepared! Have a go-bag ready. Plant a garden, learn to can. But that’s not what Glen has been preaching!

    AllPeople- If you really think the last decade of “the sky is falling any minute now” has been about getting you prepared and not about the millions of dollars in ad revenues from Gold-Line, Wise Food Storage, etc., you are a chump. Glen is the Al Gore of the right. Gore scared the left into buying carbon credits to make him rich, Glen has been scaring the right into buying gold at stupid high prices and filling their basements with over-priced freeze dried food to line his pockets. If it was just about helping people prepare he would have been teaching you how to CAN FOOD and saying to use that gold investment money to PAY OFF YOUR MORTGAGE- a FAR more valuable investment than $1200-1800/oz should a great depression come!

    …and years, and years, and years… If you predict calamity every year for a decade, and finally some sort of calamity happens, was your prediction really that accurate? He said “BUY GOLD FROM GOLD LINE” back in 2011. Today those investments are worth $400/oz less than they paid for it! Glen Beck is no prophet!

    I quoted you! How is it out of context? You called O’Reilly a “POS” and said Kelly is a female version of him. Your comment was five short sentences. There was no other context in it. You said you ised to like her, but now she’s like that “arrogant POS” O’Reilly! Maybe you want to ADD to your comment to CLARIFY your point, but to accuse me of taking your initial comment out of context is dishonest. And it doesn’t change the fact that you so freely used a vulgar, partisan insult simply because they disagree with your political views. That’s what I mean about who are we turning into?

    She played his own words. You’re upset because she didn’t ignore it? What if Hillary gave a speech, laughing and reminding everyone of all of her mistakes and gaffs that the news had already forgotten about, putting it all back in the news cycle! That’s unprecedented in American politics! You would be upset if Megan DIDN’T cover that! Why is it different when Trump does it?

    Just a year or so ago, could you have imagined that you would be publicly calling someone a “POS” simply because she has the nerve to play a politician’s own words on the news? Seriously, what have we become? This is the sort of thing people on here used to condemn when the other side did it! Now you have become just as bad.

    The mark of a true partisan- when you see playing someone’s own words as “bashing.”

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME? This guy used poor grammar???? That’s the story????

    It’s interesting to see the way the media treats this family of a dead soldier’s address at the DNC as compared to the way they treated the RNC address by the wife of the fallen soldier at Benghazi. One is a hero, the other “ruined the convention” and was an “embarrassment,” etc. You don’t have to be a Trump or a Hillary supporter to see the AMAZING double standard!

    Give me a break, Monk. I know you want to sound like you weren’t jumping the gun, but to pretend that ATHLETIC SHORTS are in any way comparable to a bikini is nuts. Go to any public shopping center and you’ll see at least a dozen woman in athletic shorts. They are short, but to say they are the same as going “pants-less” is dishonest.

    All afternoon yesterday they were calling it “terrorism.” The Germans were calling it “an act of terrorism.” The US media was calling it “terror, no matter who was involved.”…. But now that it looks like he wasn’t a right winger, they won’t use the “T-word” anymore. Hmmmm….

    When you run around a city killing random people, what can it be EXCEPT terrorism? His motive for committing the act of terror is secondary. Right, left, black, white, Middle Eastern, European, American- it’s still terrorism!

    Haven’t you ever noticed that everyone who leaves Fox and gets a job at one of the other networks suddenly becomes very liberal? Everyone in media is liberal, they just they to hide it while at Fox.

    What about all the wrong predictions? Like the great depression of 2009, the runaway inflation of 2010, the massive unemployment of 2011, the bread lines of 2012, the collapse of everything except Goldline gold that’s coming any second? Did you buy gold in when he said to in 2012 when it was $1800/oz? Because a lot of people listened to him and lost their shirts! But don’t worry! Buy more gold! Store more food in your basement! Heck, if he predicts disaster for a decade, and something finally happens, it means he’s “just off on the timing,” right? And if not, at least he made a bundle off you!
