Like enough of the media will report on the transgressions of obama and his minions. World War III is a given. Ready for the End Times? Maybe not the way the Bible portrays it, but Armageddon-ish none the less.. ;-)

This is expected, but a bad omen. We do NOT need to have a fractious republican party in 2014! I would suggest the grassroots band together throughout the country and target (yes, I used that noxious scary word) the progressives. It will be hard to do and we may need to pony up to achieve something akin to cash parity with the incumbent. McCain, Cornyn, Collins, Graham, etc.
I know exactly how to grow the republican party too. It is simple, start teaching PRINCIPLES and ETHICS to the American people. Over 50 probably had some version of Civics classes in High School. Younger than that, and it is a crapshoot. I personally pass out Heritage Declaration of Independence/Constitution booklets to anyone who will take one or more. I just put them on the front reception desk, 50 at a time. Two days, they are gone and I have to refresh them. Working on 300 so far ;-)
God help us to remember what made the United States great. I can tell you it wasn’t gay marriage or acceptance of muslim mores. It was hard work, responsibility and a genuine caring for your neighbor. What happens to the family 4 houses down from you IS important. A starving family IS your responsibility – at least to let them know how to get help. I will NOT give cash, but I WILL buy food for those that need it. I do it in my neighborhood, different towns, states, countries. Costs me very little and possibly helps someone to work out of their particular issue.
1) I deserve what I get, but I thank Go

Who are these people polling? The democratic headquarters? The major media report the causative effect of the republican intransigence is to blame for all the ills of the government shutdown. I would like to proffer the argument that it is the plans of obama and his ilk to create as much pain and confusion as possible to stir up the emotions of the ill informed populace. Anyone who has seen the republican “demands” and the response by reed, pelosi and obama, can come to no conclusion other than the democrat refusal to budge off the talking points and their determination to make the public angry. We have one chance and one chance only – decimate the democratic presence in congress in both houses. Obama needs to be blocked before he truly destroys this country.
October 12, 2013 at 10:03pm
When are people going to realize that the democrats subservience to obama is causing this. The plan is to get people to riot, thereby giving obama the excuse to declare martial law. Once that is done, say goodbye to your guns, freedom and life as an American! You fools voted him in twice and you are now going to reap what you have sown. Unfortunately, you are also going to bring the rest of us down with you.
September 23, 2013 at 10:42pm
I find this despicable! Let’s see, all the proponents of obamacare get special dispensations while the people paying for it get screwed. Sounds like something obama, reed and pelosi really like and strive to accomplish.
Remember that ONLY democrats voted on obamacare and shoved it down our throats! Any republican that is truly concerned about the American people should stand up and cheer Senator Cruz.
These quislings are the same ones that brought us a 17 trillion debt! They all should be ousted from the senate, their properties should be liquidated to pay back the American public and any honors given them should be rescinded or stricken down!
This may sound draconian, but these criminals are destroying this country!

Al J Zira – a pertinent question > Now what is exactly the problem many of us find ourselves asking – without a cogent response. Glenn Beck has a lot to tell and his thread of action. He had it right with the 9/12 groups, but somewhere it slipped into the background. Like most people, the 9/12 and tea party groups are busy planning their next gathering or possibly the next meeting of the ilk. They are concerned with the correct path to take. There is only ONE path to take. It is God’s path. Not church, not groups but individuals! If you are on God’s path, he will guide you on what to do. Actually, you will probably fight Him before finally giving in. Then, and ONLY then will we overcome! Individuals committed to God! Try it sometime – it works!

Once again we have been treated to the honorable intentions of the racist progressives. Why not believe the employee? She is black right? What is the matter with you? Are you a racist? You darn racists deserve what comes to you! No black woman would lie about something like this! Take Tawanna Brawley, why she was injured and threatened by a joke! An upstanding woman who …. errr, just found out she was lying. Well how about that woman who was so brutally raped by the Duke Lacrosse Team? She deserved to be ….. errr, just found out she lied too.
Hey got a suggestion for all blacks, latinos, chinese, indian, albino, white or any other culture – GROW the FRIGG UP! If someone says something offensive, avoid them. I would rather know someone hated me for no reason at all. Also drop jesse and rev al please. They are nothing but racist, race-baiting charlatans. IMHO

and they polled the democratic party to get objective data too!

I am a card carrying right wing extremist. ;-)
That negates my scientific training and experiences somehow.
I spent years listening to, probably the same group of scientists, tolling the bell that global cooling is going to turn the earth into a snowball, because of societies use of certain products.
That time they extolled the scientific analysis and how ALL credible scientists agreed that we were on a slippery slope to being popsicles! Well, that didn’t seem to happen or even got close.
Now we have global warming. All credible scientists claim only crackpots would doubt their conclusions.
As for myself, maybe this will even out the global cooling and we are in for a long period of moderate and comfortable weather. Wonder if they are going to ring the bell of – OMG the weather is going to be nice for the next millenium! We had better prepare for it!
Hand me a margarita, I like it already ;-)

Oh puleez! Obamacare is the greatest thing that could happen to this country. It is the crowning achievement of the progressive liberal – “you need to pass this bill in order to find out what is inside” AND the IDIOTS all went along with it!
We deserve what we get, that much is true. I just pray to God that we don’t get what we truly deserve!
July 28, 2013 at 2:38pm
Dear rev. Al, you are probably one of the most racist persons I have ever listened to (except possible black panthers). You make mountains out of molehills, make light of serious subjects and refuse to accept the responsibility that is being placed on you to help resolve black issues.
My personal challenge: if you can’t help RESOLVE the issues, stop jumping on them to increase your power base! Be a MAN, NOT a racist bigoted liar! Tawanna Brawley anyone?
July 27, 2013 at 12:56pm
And what exactly were TWO ROOKIES doing together on ANY call? One would think that the department would be intelligent enough to pair one rookie with an experienced officer. Although I love Texas, this state is going to the dogs! I am seeing a lot of stuff that belongs on the coasts, not in Texas.
Gloom, despair and agony on me
deep dark depression, excessive misery
if it weren’t for bad luck I’d have no luck at all

Huh? Are you for real? I have followed Beck for years, so you may think I am biased, but I have NEVER heard him profess violence to solve ANYTHING!
Freedom OF religion, NOT freedom FROM religion!
Atheism IS a religion! Their beliefs are religious in the strictest definition of the word. They just disavow that their profession of atheism is part and parcel of monotheism, polytheism and whatever theism you can think of. It is a theory (not provable) that a higher power does NOT exist. Their view is just as valid as the Christian professing Jesus or a Jew professing G_d and protected by the Constitution, BUT in order for them to have their thoughts respected, they NEED to honor the thoughts of others, ESPECIALLY the ones they vehemently disagree with!
Read you Constitution, it is all spelled out succinctly and with brevity – unlike our current government.

The purpose of all this is to make the populace react. Once we react he can release the hounds of government to tear us apart. If you think that statement is a bit overboard, I will remind you of various dictatorships that started with actions that the citizens did not approve of, but what the heck, it didn’t really affect them.
Division, derision and defeat – three steps in taking a democratic people into socialistic fascism.
Are you ready to die to protect someone else, even if it doesn’t affect you or your loved ones?
That's exactly why one has to wonder if the whole massacre was gov. orchestrated.
 February 22, 2013 at 7:45pm
Yep, we have retained our Constitutional right to own guns, but HEY, WAIT A SECOND!!! Where are all the cartridges??? Especially .223 and 9mm??? Have you tried to buy gun powder lately? How about primers? Good luck!!
Yep, old barry says OK, keep your guns. We’ll fight you a little just to keep you preoccupied and silently buy 1.5 billion rounds of ammunition, as many primers as we can get our hands on and, oh yeh, the gun powder, with your money of course.
Enjoy your weapons, but how are you going to practice without being able to buy ammunition or the components of a cartridge for reloading.
Just thinking a bit.

Ya know, I always thought that the people who OWNED the company had a right to determine wages and benefits. It is also the right of the employee to either work or not work for the company based on his/her acceptance of the terms of employment. If the owners get stinking rich off the labor of the employees, it seems to me that is their prerogative. The employee has a right to renegotiate and the owner has a right to refuse or agree, depending on the worth of the employee to the organization. So where exactly does extortion work into the equation. With the laws, and I may add the culture, that are currently in effect, it seems to me that there is no need to fund an additional entity to spend the employees wages for issues the employee may not like or have the union bosses do nothing but collect dues and bluster from time to time. There is NO valid reason we can’t live without unions. From what I see they are not only ineffective, but quite dangerous to the very people they extort from.

The problem is that there appears to be a steady drumroll of progressive ideas and platitudes being foisted on the young military minds. I would posit that this is an attempt to subvert the younger, more impressionable minds, so that in a time of crisis – coming soon to a neighborhood like yours – the military/police/power wielders will be more likely turn on the American people rather than side with them. This is insidious and extremely troublesome. Once the upper echelons of any governmental armed cadre truly believe the pap that is being fed to them, it is a matter of time before we not only financially resemble the Wiemar republic, but we will start on the path to a totalitarian government. Hope I am wrong.

Want to see something really scary? Plot the Dow-Jones Industrial average against the Gold chart. You may see some interesting figures. Also you may want to read Bernanke’s speech from 2002 (I think it was in August). It is a bit tedious and loaded with arcane references to high level finance, but the scary part is it lays out why Quantitative Easing and the reaction of the market. Quite interesting if you are able to discern the true “State of the Union”.
If you've done that.... I'd really love to hear your view.
Is the stock market simply a repository for assets now that the dollar is being destroyed?
Are gold prices a reflection of our destroyed currency with inflation coupled in as well
The stock market is barely even a reference to any sort of economic health. It is supposed to be the confidence people have in a given company to produce profits, dividends and growth. The large hedge funds and pick farms (Dow Jones, S&P, etc.) are impacting this by operating in their own sense as a communal raising and lowering point. That's a small impact but it is present.
That simplistic definition in mind, it has no relation to the country as a whole or even business as a whole since publicly traded businesses (those in stock markets: NYSE, etc.) are not the majority of businesses in the country, the majority are small, privately owned companies.
Trying to guage economic health from the NYSE is like trying to determine physical health from seeing if someone is breathing by fogging a mirror, it only tells you if you're alive.
So much drives the Gold market, a lot of it is emotional, that comparing the stock results against gold has no value other than to measure emotional reflections of the two indicators. There's no logical result you can take away from it.
There is no simple metric to indicate the health of the country. It's all perceptual. That being the case, then what you see in the country is what the country is to you. Right now, most see bad stuff. So, it's bad. If most were employed, not being taxed to death and having fun, I doubt that would be the view of the country.
