yeah Glen is a moron, a pompous JA and furthermore above everything else, a horrible talking head.

The fact that he's on Fixed News along with Billo The Clown is just proof enough. Come on now you can't really say you enjoy watching Fixed News for the "dynamic reporting" and "Unbiased opinions".

All if have to say is...*cough*... Rupert Murdoch...*cough*

Heh..I'm not going to bother rebutting that post.

With comments like that, why bother? I'm not going to change your mind.

While I understand your concern over Faux News as a source of information, GB is not exactly a hardcore partisan. So far he hasn't pissed me off so much and I'm 60% liberal. He's correct about this issue for sure. You only have to look at Reuters and other news agencies to see the truth in his frustration with CalState policies.

Don't shoot down the message so off hand. See the video and try to understand where he's coming from and ignore the channel it's on.

Glen Beck breaks down the "Economic Stimulus" bill.

Featuring Dennis Kucinich



I hope he keeps doing putting the information out. Maybe that will get the rest of the MSM to jump on board and we can finally stop hearing about American Idol and all the other nonsense that has absolutely NO IMPORTANCE on what is going on today.

I was born and raised in California, in L.A., and when I saw Iranians dragging blindfolded Americans out of the embassy, I dropped out of college and joined the Army. My gung-ho plan was to join the Airborne Ranges and kill as many of those bastards as possible. However the Armys' plan was make me a Comsec tech, and while I was in, peace broke out, the wall fell down. After my four years was up, I went home.

Flash forward 20 years. I've been crowded out of orchard neighborhoods that turned industrial three times in my life already. Bellflower, San Fernando Valley, and Silicon Valley. My home state. My home cities. My stomping grounds.

Too much immigration. My parents were immigrants, but had to speak, read, and write English, had to have jobs waiting for them, a sponsor, and a place to stay. Not so these days. In the old days too many out-of-staters would visit and stay. We had stickers that said, 'Thank you for visiting California. Now go home!'. My immigrant family were from the WWII immigration wave. They saw war, and became very patriotic Americans. Too much immigration from other countries, from other states, and just over populated for the resources we have. We're a victim of the financial pyramid scheme where more and more people are needed to support the financial system.

I blame most of the states' problems on the older generation, the hippies. They made it seem as if everyone who had a hippie mindset should hop in their VW buses and head west. Most of the leftists here are either from socialist countries and expect to be taken care of, or emigrated here from other states with leftist mindsets. How would you expect these people to vote? We don't even require an ID for voting. Ever wonder how many foreign tourists visit during election days? I do.

Before the '80s, the government itself was to blame. My Valley neighborhood experienced a major quake in the '70s, and FHA and VA took back many homes that were damaged or abandoned. They gave those homes to families in Watts, and those families rented rooms out to other families. Those homes no longer had landscaping, the lawns turned into dirt parking lots, and the children were taught the ways of welfare; more kids means more welfare. But teen girls raising kids with no daddies meant they raised little monsters who became adult monsters.

Now we have extremist leftist political monsters such as; Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Walters, Jerry Brown, Henry Waxman, and others. Just like when the '60's anti-war movement was backed by the KGB, these politicians seem to have been influenced by the KGB ideology, to subvert American principles that made it a strong country. I blame most of our states' problems on the older generation, the hippies. But we do have occasional bright stars like Ronald Regan and Duncan Hunter.

Wow.....well said.

Thank you for posting your first-hand knowledge.

I'm a survivor of the Hippie years....Saw the Kent State debacle and watched the bras burn. I didn't drink their kool-aid then and I still don't. I can honestly say that I saw ahead of time where all the "Free Love and, hell, everything else that was espoused, was heading.

You just sound like a bitter republican angry at the fact that a liberal is in the white house. Calling our politicians extremist liberal monsters just shows you for what you really are. If you don't like living here then move to a red state. You hateful republicans always claim to be great christians but when some group actually wants to treat others how they would want to be treated themselves, like it says in your bible, you call them socialist communist pigs. It's pathetic.

Glenn Beck is sometimes on the money but most of the time he just spouts nonsense to get attention. I wouldn't be against becoming independent from the rest of the states. Our economy might be in the dumps now but we can certainly turn things around. I'd join up with Canada and Mexico.

California is really the only state we need to join the union and build super highways for trade and all that other good stuff. Maybe we should go behind the rest of the states backs and push them out out of this North American Union deal that is in the works.

Having California drop out and form a union with Mexico and Canada would actually make sense. We know the dollar is going to collapse soon. California is closer to ruin so we will be the first to join the union. As things seem to get better for us and worse for the rest of the states they will become desperate and envious. If Americans are all sheep and the grass is always greener on the other side, actually true in this case, then it is the perfect plan.

get rid of california they are honestly the most embarrassing part of being American

everything about the superficial, violent promoting, white-haters, definitely not lots of masculinity out there.....besides Gov Swarz....I got love for him.

But California really has harmed the Nation with promoting Violence in Movies.

Really a tragedy what happened to the African Americans. I blame Hollywood and movies like Scarface.

Alright, enough said. We'll keep our billions of dollars that otherwise would go to the federal government in taxes which is spread around to the other 49 and lets see if everyone else takes a hit. Heck, why not let NY join us in doing so seeing as how we are the ones who contribute the most. I swear, all of this mindless blabber that comes out of people's mouths really doesn't do you guys a favor.

I completely agree with him. California has mismanaged themselves and overspent for years. The problems they have their are huge. I don't want to bail them out. Texas has maintained a balanced budget since state hood and we are quite prosperous here. If we can do it along with many other states then so can California.


An extension on that is that California is the 6th largest economy
in the world.

It is the most prosperous state in the USA, but it also spends like
a drunken sailor at a whore house.

Having lived in los angeles .... I can tell you that I have never been taxed out the butt for so many things. Taxes on all sorts of things from 15 different taxes on a cell phone bill or cable bill to huge state income taxes.

California is the 8th biggest economy in the world so really it should be able to be self sufficient to secede.

It's the hippies who let you guys vote without an ID then?

The hippies children grew up to be mindless twits and ..oh,these are the the same people who see their shrinks and blame everything on their parents.

Same mentality.At some point a person/s has to wake up and assume responsibility for their own actions.

You can't blame the hippies-how can they be responsible for anything.Seriously-pot will get you nowhere too

Paul McCartney once sang "Give Ireland back to the Irish" Well why couldn't we give California back to the Mexicans? It would solve alot of problems I think, & not just a part of it but the whole shebang from South to North. It would make Hollywood movies alot more interesting while giving Arnold a break from politics to get back into acting. I can see it now Mexican made Terminator movies....They'd be like the old Kung Fu/Karate movies of the 60's and 70's a real hoot!!!!!

I'm an immigrant who wound up in California in the early 90s. Had to go through the who sponsor ship thing too and we were brought here by the US Government. My parents Cuban refugees. A former Cuban MI and a government scientist...No wonder we were given such preferential treatment. I agree with everything you said up to this point.

It was republicans that were voted in to end that stupid war. And to be fair about those kinds of things here, America need to keep its' nose out of the rest of world then and now, and maybe things like what happened in Iran wouldn't happen so much.. They should definitely take a less liberal approach to California and maybe work on facts rather than social sympathy because thus far it has not worked. California is an inch away from total collapse because of YEARS of unbalanced politics and economics. And the liberal left there does not know that the politics and economics are mutually exclusive. Ideology(Left or right) is no substitute for facts. The sooner California and the whole country realize this the better it will be for all of us.

I just can't bring myself to watch FOX News.
Even if I agree with any points they make on these
small doses people post, I still can't detach from how
unfair and unbalanced they are.

We need to see what we have in common, not what makes us different, look at the civil rights movement. Look at what it accomplished when we think that way. We need to realize that we are all in this together and need to solve it together, not criticize each over over semantics and flaws in plans. Work to correct and make these plans better. If we keep tearing each other apart, there won't be a US left to fight over.

Thank you for this.
I hope that people read this and then read it again.

Glenn Beck is no better than Rush Limbaugh... California is almost communist, but they are still part of the USA. And if you want to kick all states that are gonna be bankrupt, you'll be pretty much alone, when 46 states are in huge deficits and could declare bankruptcy this year or next year.

And if you don't like California, as many people in the US do, just don't care about any info coming out of there.

[edit on 31-1-2009 by Vitchilo]


Where did this inane dislike for California come from?
Isn't it time WE grew up?
WE are all WE have.
It's a WE time -
Not an I time.
WE need to be there for each other. Can't WE see that?

I tried to say this in not so direct terms, with my middle of the road approach, but it seems to have fallen flat. I could not have said it better myself.
