Sarcasm is hidden in alot of my posts.
Here's the thing.
When you realize what we do in America, its make MONEY.
Yes, greed is a part of that.
I can guarantee that 80-90% of people only do one thing in life.
Try to make more money.
So if this guy can at least show more people about what's wrong with the spending habits of this gov't then I am all for it.
Listen, i am a Texan and am pretty conservative. I think Beck does provide thought provoking material. I understand why people like him...although i
can't stand his mannerisms so don't really watch him much.
I am not bashing Beck or promoting any political ideology.
I just wanted to point out that there may be some strange logic used.
I understand that people want to make more money and all that. I hope they do good at it, and have money start falling out their butts. I will cheer
them all on.
But if Beck wants to make more money AND keep his credibility, he might choose better bed fellows. This is one conservative that is turned off by his
choices in regards to this.
I just want to point out:
- survivalism is a mormon edict. it is part of their faith. church members are encouraged to keep a sizable stock of water/foodgear in case of some
survival need. Beck being a mormon, i expect him to have some survivalist bents.
- encouraging people to buy crap they don't need by exploiting fear is not a way to improve our country. encouraging people to stop spending, and
to live within their means IS a way to improve this country.
