    And how about us? You and me? We’re ghosts. We’re like one of the incomplete reincarnations of Voldemort. We’re not our true selves when we post…at least not our complete selves. Most of us would not write so boldly if we had to sign our real names at the bottom of the copy.

    Even better, who is real and who is simply a figment of the left’s imagination, paid or otherwise, put here to corrupt conversation or drive opinion in more hateful directions?

    The fallacy of the printed word is that it is truth. We’re geared for truth. We have a hard time dealing with those secretive ones who come here with ulterior motives. Think about it before you further a wacko conversation. Trolls are NOT your friend. And sometimes folks here who agree with you aren’t your friends either.

    I’m reading the arkle above trying to imagine how it sounds to CBS and libs in general. Were I lib I’d classify her as a traitor and if I were CBS I’d be scratching my head wondering how a woman with obvious mental problems ever go on the air.

    Just goes to my frequent point that reporters are whoares. (Missepelling intentional.) They will report in whatever way the boss or the producer tells them to report. They’ll sing Dixie or the Battle Hymn of the Republic.

    Are TB reporters any different? Would they leave TB to go work at, say, CNN and change their politics? I don’t know, but I’m guessing they would. They couldn’t work there otherwise.

    What’s news here is that she tells us that the stories are manipulated in clever ways that are not obvious. That’s scary. Sure, we see the big deviations, but I believe she’s talking about mind control tricks that we, the average joe or jane don’t catch which are meant to sway the typical mind numbed liberal and keep them in the fold. A word here. A phrase there. It adds up.

    Buck, I’m listening to you. It’s great to see a guy we like make the big time. I’m sure Glenn is busting buttons on the red cowboy shirt he wore to work today too.

    I just confirmed yet again on the range that if you come at me armed with an exploding pizza box or anything else, you are quite safe until you get within 5 feet. Then if my precocious little .380 actually does not jam, I WILL put at least one out of five bullets into some part of your body as I aim at your heaving chest. Could be the face, leg, foot. Probably not the chest.

    On the other hand, if the gun does not fire when the trigger is pulled you will just have to wait with your deadly pizza box until I work out the problem. Again.

    History is full of armchair agitators. History repeats over and over and over. I would hate to think that I would be totally incapable of breaking out of a role so old and common as to be almost genetic. And predictable. Self fulfilling EVERY time it’s tried.

    St. Heretic is a prime example of this. An instigator. No more. No plan. No brains. Just yapping emotion calculated to make himself feel better, but dangerous because some unhinged individual might actually take his rant to heart and go on a one man war.

    Then St. Heretic would be either happy or shocked from the comfort of his couch watching everything on TV.

    Loose lips really do sink battleships and all this juvenile “we oughta do this and we oughta do that” is dangerous and supremely counter productive. Why, if you think about it, it sounds as goofy as the crap the left spews in their fetid internet lairs all the time. Two sides of the same rancid sophomoric moronic coin.

    It’s also a distraction, and that is the worst of all. Dimwitted children sitting around at a picnic flicking ants off the tater salad while crafty elephants in the tall grass are sneaking up on them to squash out their living guts.

    At this point the ballot box is the ONLY answer. Ignoring that leads to chaos, which would be the result of what St.Heretic and his like propose.

  • April 18, 2014 at 9:17am

    St.Heretic. Now that’s a mighty powerful generalized statement about what we oughta do. Ok. So, what’s the plan? Will you give us an outline of the campaign? Naturally, I wouldn’t expect specifics such as the number and makeup of your troops, nor the exact plan of attack, armaments, conventional and thermonuclear etc. But perhaps working around that you could present your proposal for getting the country back right in an acceptable length of time. And how long is thing going to take? Days? Years? Months? Or were you going to let someone else take care of that for you?

    And one last thing. After the battle is won, what will the new world look like because at least 50% of the country is going to have a different idea and perhaps a counter revolution. Have you thought these things out? GIVE us the beans St. Heretic. What’s the plan?

    I have not seen anyone mention the obvious, and that is that ol Buck is serving as an ambassador for Glenn. This is a historic occasion in the Beck story. I’m hoping that this inroad will bear fruit in times to come. I don’t know if Rush did this or his main man HR, but it’s a great thing.

    KnewHear you must be real because trolls don’t post in anything longer than two sentences.

    Glenn is going thru yet another transformation. As many have pointed out it’s burn out…..and that’s bad for us.

    As for Bundy. This has brought out the darkest posts to date and has gotten me down. All I see is a pack of yowling anarchists and commenting bomb tossers.

    Anarchists have no strategy, no goal, no end game. They just like to be mischievous, kill people, and break things.

    I’d love for someone to educate me on what there is to be accomplished by violence at this point. Who will be convinced to be the ideal leader afterwards and how soon will the gubment start toeing the line. What is the line? What is the objective? Where’s the plan??? Where is the gain?

    And what is the inevitable and swift loss? Whereas the left can do anything humanly imaginable and get away with it, anyone perceived as being on the right who sneezes WILL be held up before the world as a monster.

    Naw…so much hot air floating around here that you can lift off without so much as a kite. Maybe Beck is just seeing it for the first time.

    But…there might be one fool of a reader who will take it on, spurred on by all this loose talk and in so doing, do nothing but hand the next elections to the left.

  • April 17, 2014 at 10:37pm

    Buck, you made the big time. None bigger. Monstro congratulations!

  • April 17, 2014 at 6:02pm

    I’m thinking those signs could inflict a really bad paper cut. Best to leave those outlaws alone!

    For gosh sakes guys ignore GenX at the top or continue to pay the price. Ignore him and he’ll go away.

    I heard the last part of the Shane Osborn live. My very first impression of Osborn was that he was an old fashioned wheeler dealer about what we’re used to in the run of the mill GOP. The kind that would go right to the top from the get-go. Not my cup of tea. But I was willing to hear more before coming down one way other.

    But when he mentioned Norquist my antenna went *boing* but when Glenn didn’t say anything I thought I must have got it wrong. However, as soon as they came back from break all “you know what” broke loose.

    Then when it was Sasse’s turn I didn’t get all good vibes either. He was a little imprecise with some of his answers. Looks like he *may* have unsavory connections himself in the big W. This kinda flummoxed him a bit.

    I’d need to hear more explaining from him before making my mind up as well. But Osborne pretty well whacked himself but good.

    The first time I ran into this phenom was years ago when I got the notion to see what the arabs were saying about the jews. So I looked around until I found just such a forum. What I saw scorched my eyes.

    On the one hand you had the arab supporters all agreeing with each other about jews gotta go and such, and on the other you had the Jewish supporter trolls on there cracking goat jokes to further infuriate the wacko arab supporters. It was pretty obvious that the two sides would like nothing better than to get the opposition in their gun sights. I had never seen anything like it and I never went back. Kinda like looking down a manhole cover into hell.

    It’s getting that way here…the back and forth.

    Liveprayer, I didn’t get off that last bus. Seen a lot of folks like you over time. It’s like you guys are turned off the assembly line. Carbon copies. Big blaze and then you poof out.

    All you’re doing is substituting passion for good common every day Christian sense. Seen it many times.

    One day you’ll calm down and be a “true believer” in the next thing to come along and be just as passionate.

    The only problem is that long before your education is over, you hit the streets preaching. Right now it is religion. Maybe tomorrow it will be wringer washers.

    Whatever your rave takes, we have to suffer through it.

    Go back. Finish your religious education, and I’ll guarantee that you’ll see things in a far more reasonable and kindly way. You may very well continue to believe as you spout now, but you’ll come to your conclusions honestly, and not out of half baked assumptions.

    “LibertyStrong Apr. 16, 2014 at 2:55pm
    Please don’t expect Glenn to continue to hold your hand through the rough road ahead.”

    I’m about to the point of not re-upping LibertyStrong. It has not one whit to do with differences with Glenn over opinions. I’m jake with 99.97% of that. It’s just as you say, he’s worn out.

    Everything else you had to say about us owing Glenn is correct also. But, Glenn and I have a contract, and he hasn’t been keeping up his end lately. It’s the old “I didn’t leave Glenn, he left me kinda thing.

    I have NO idea how he has maintained his steam this long. And how wicked this forum has become lately. Jeez!

    Glenn sees something going on in the country. Well, I see something going on right here. If it keeps up, I could see TB just dumping the forum all together. The needle is moving ever more rapidly to a zero sum gain for the old timer commenters. The rational ones aren’t getting satisfaction from the irrational ones and vice versa.

  • April 17, 2014 at 12:11am

    I bought the ROKU and have been a member for two years so I could watch the evening show. Glenn only works it three nights a week, and it’s obvious that most times it’s not live. If I didn’t have money invested in it I’d probably be more generous in my criticism. To me it’s boiling down to an investment decision. I’m not getting near the value I used to. Now whose fault is that?

    On the other hand, this forum has really turned acidic. If it keeps up all that will be left is the trolls and the demented. I don’t blame Glenn for not reading this stuff. It’s starting to get a little scary.

    Forums are living critters in a way. They take on a personality by and by. I surely don’t like the way it’s going lately. And yep, if I decide to leave, I won’t let the door bump me in the butt, so you can save that for someone else. (Not speaking about you adoptedlevite)

    Gonzo, I have been reading between the lines for quite awhile now. Re-up time is not that far off and I’m really wondering what my decision will be. He’s not the same Beck he was at re-up time last year. He might not even be around at re-up time next year. He keeps sending these signals.

  • April 16, 2014 at 9:41am

    This black/white thing in the south is the ONE instance in which I have seen Beck, who is usually el supremo at ferreting out the truth of history, go with the history status quo. For gosh sakes Glenn. Go deeper than the newsreels of the day. The truth is out there, though it is dying off quickly now. Get past how you were raised to think of the south from the other side of the continent, and discover that most southerners, both white and black were just good and decent people who got along with each other.

    Yeah, I know I’m fighting a losing battle because this is an instance where I am being politically incorrect with the left coast southern world view you hold.

  • April 16, 2014 at 9:32am

    I’d like to agree on one thing. I agree with Glenn 99.97%. The thing I’m tired of hearing…bloody well tired of hearing is how the blacks (all the blacks) were mistreated by the whites (all the whites) in the south in the 1960′s.

    I knew one of the bus burners (though I just found out from his son decades later). It turns out that he was just an outlaw out for a good time. The flip side of Beck’s buddy Hutch. It’s a shame that they didn’t meet each other one night to beat each others brains out with sticks.

    There was no monolithic bubba moment. It was just a few bad, or badly raised people at all levels of society who were causing all the confusion.On both sides.

    Despite the relatively little that you see which was produced by northern media agitators blacks and whites still got up every morning and went to work together and got business done. The system was changing and evolving. Change was inevitable. MLK just sped it up.

    There was no monolith bad guy white southerners vs the monolith good guy po po black folks. This is an ongoing fairy tale and I’m sick and tired of the story of the south being mistold.

    Now…the way black folks were mistreated up north and the way they burned down whole towns….now there is a story worth the telling!

    My curiosity is why now is Beck just noticing the ultra-extremist commenters on the forum he started. As a matter of fact, he mentions only Facebook. I don’t even think he reads the comments any longer, if he ever did.

    Did he have a hint that someone is going to do something stupid and try and lay it off on him? If so, they ought to know by now that they have been disavowed, and well so.

    I subscribe to the theory that 99% of the wacko extremist nut jobs posting here are just spouting. However, it takes only one to ruin it for us all.

    I’m pretty sure that when and if the time comes to take up arms, we’ll all know it without having to be told so by wordsmith cowards who just want to stir up trouble. Well, actually, prod someone else into stirring up trouble. Yackety yackety yack. No ideas. No brains.

    Hey, I’ll let you know when it’s time to exchange your ballets for bullets. We’re not there yet. Settle down. Be the solution and not the miserable moron excuse to strengthen the opposition.

    If you believe violence is the reason for the season then you are either a wacko lib or an anarchist. In NO way are you a conservative. Me and the Beck are on the same page…big time.

    When I was a kid I used to like to ride the city bus line…which went out of biz decades ago. It made a big circle from near where I lived to about 5 miles away and then back. One day I witnessed a huge gray smoke ring rising into the air while looking out the bus window. My memory of it is quite vivid and I have wondered about it over the many years since.

    When I saw it, it was probably 150 feet in the air behind some businesses and perhaps 40 feet in diameter roiling upwards.

    Was it organic? Did it originate on Venus? From 20 miles beneath the sea (at least 300 miles south)? A giant space octopus smoking a cigar? I have no idea. Alas, the camera on my cello phone was at least 50 years in the future. Dang it!

    Yeah, it was pretty bizarre.

    I’m pretty sure it wasn’t atomic…and it had no hangey down tendrils.
