Glen's not there to illicit laughs to prop up bad ratings, he's not a comedian by profession. If he has one of the highest ratings on the news
networks that would mean people are watching, would there be that many stupid people in this country wasting their time watching his show if there
wasn't some interest? Glen himself professes he doesn't want or need any politicians, heads of State on his show, he doesn't want the spin. But
then you stick with the Comedy for your primary news source, maybe there will be a new Blue Collar Comedy Tour that will bring you more up to date on
current events. Try reading the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and then try and tell us all how much of that is being practiced by our Federal
LOL, are you kidding me? I have a double degree in History and Political Science, I've read the constitution, and all the rest of our founding
documents, gasp I even have read documents Glenn hasn't endorsed or covered yet.
What's more is that I understand them. I'm sorry to disappoint you, but Jon Stewart is not my primary news source. He's funny, I appreciate the
show, I watch it, it's not rocket science there.
Glen is an idiot. That's it, he is an idiot.
Both programs are for entertainment purposes only, and considering that I prefer to laugh than curse at the t.v. or radio, but hey maybe that's just
Glenn professes to not want those people (actual government office holders) because, stay with me, HE CAN'T GET THEM. No one in their right mind,
with any hopes of keeping their career would demonstrate support to Beck, he's an idiot, and not in a I surround myself with intellectuals to ensure
I'm telling the truth kind of way. He surrounds himself with lapdogs that pile more crap onto his crap, forever.
I'm glad Glenn found our history and supporting documents, and I'm happy that others are finding a renewed sense of pride and reexamining these
documents as well, unfortunately from what I've heard on his radio show it seems many people somehow missed this discussion in high school. Now they
have placed themselves at the mercy of the mind of Glenn Beck, and unfortunately there isn't much going on up there.
Let's see here, let's say the teacher let the stoner come up to the front teach the section on the constitution. Sure, he'll mention some quotes
and come up an interpretation that no one else would have, but when it's all over the teacher needs to stand front and center and correct all the
stoner's mistakes. Who's the teacher? No one on Fox that's for sure. And I'm constantly having explain documents, world events, etc after my
family member listen to him.
Now, you asked how much of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution are being practiced today. That question is actually more complex than you might
Despite what Beck says, the Constitution is still the law of the land, it is our rule of law.
Now, is it being practiced the same as 200 years ago? Absolutely not, because it is a living document and our country lasted for more than 20 years.
Let's see here, I'm sure you can agree that our government is not always right, actually they get it wrong a lot and then the clean up crew has to
follow. For example, a few of my favorite changes include the abolishment of slavery and giving women the right to vote but those are just too
Now, I think Glenn needs to have an episode(s) on the Supreme Court and federal courts in general and their decisions because that is what your going
to have to throw out to go back to your strict constitutionalism, which actually was never practiced here.
