Why Glenn Beck is Dangerous to America..

If I had children, I'd probably put parental locks on the entire FOX news network.

One thing I find particularly troubling is the fact that the FCC allows talking heads like Glenn Beck to spew his hatred, his racism, his ignorance and his blatant stupidity on national television nightly. I don't get it.

He perpetuates lies, he incites violence and hate crimes and stirs up some serious anti government sentiment. None of what he states is factual, and he plays to a crowd who's educational numbers look like Bush's last days in office. It's downright scary.

I'm not so sure Glenn Beck even has a college education. I really think he should be taken off the air, because his show is nothing but an extreme right wing propaganda machine which is reminiscent of Nazi era hate speech.

To Bill or not to Bill

There's been a lot of debate regarding the state of the current health care legislation that won the Senate democrats approval yesterday. No public option, the fact that current health benefits would be taxed and a mandate for all Americans to buy insurance regardless. Not so kosher.

Although these 3 major issues make the bill less than...most of the bill is a step in the right direction. It limits power to big health insurance companies, it strips down big PHARMA spending, and it brings in more people under the blanket of medicare then we have now.

No, it's certainly not the bill I would like to see, but anything at this point is a good start. Health care has been a 60+ year debate, and we've seen absolutely nothing come of it, ever. This bill starts the actual foundation to get the ball rolling, and that's a good thing.

This legislation can always be modified later.
