Nobody's Opinion: "St. Louis, YOU SUCK!"
Those were the last spoken words of Glenn Beck at The Bold and Fresh Tour here in St. Louis, last Saturday Night. (I'm trying to write like all the professionals and you see how well that is working out for me.)
Let me start again.
Did you ever have an really bad ominous inkling about something, and not be able to find out what is really going on? With all the bad news daily, what does it all mean? Just today...Fox News started out trying to make it sound exciting that Chick- ol-Filet is expanding... wow, that'
s a great job. The oil spill could actually get worse with either a methane gas blowup which would cause a tsunami big enough to, not only wipe out all the Southern states' coastlines, and kill thousands of people, but almost the entire southern half of Florida, including Miami---or if it doesn't get capped, (some scientist say) the plankton could be destroyed in the Atlantic, and soon after the world's population will be suffering from starvation.
No wonder Tony Hayward went to play on his yacht.
Frankly, I should think Glenn Beck should cry a little more.
the big Globalists taking down America on purpose just to go onto their One World Government? Are the conservative talk hosts that all of us are hoping to help preserve our nation, also as powerless as we are to affect any kind of sanity in our politicians? Are we being duped again and again by a procession of "conservatives" to elect,---- who--- it is not known, if when they get into office, no matter what they may say... the rich will keep getting richer, and the "middle class" will be footing more of the load for the world? Will our wars--- cap and trade---the creation of the North American Territories (Mexico, United States, and Canada)---the continuation of two- party ping-pong system that only serves the same rich people go on until judgment day?
Would Bill Gates and Warren Buffet really be trying to get all the billionaires to donate half their earnings if they didn't know themselves the tremendous advantages they have had in building their fortunes?
And how about that Spooky Guy Soros? (As Glenn calls him.) Is there no laws against breaking nations?
Who is REALLY in control here?
One thing for damn sure....it's not us.
So, we search for leaders to say what we can't, and the two doing the best job at the moment are Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck.
Glenn came out on stage first. Give him a Scottish accent, and he would make a good Scotty from Star Trek: "Iaim a giv'n her all she kin handl...captin...she's aboout to blowww....!"
Glenn has so much energy coming out of his passion, one can only wonder if he has a caffeine patch permanently implanted in his hypothalamus. It truly is amazing. Beck came out to a standing ovation of a packed house...with a personally autographed bat given to him by the Cardinal Slugger, Pujols, which he proudly displayed. The chalkboard
even got a standing ovation.
Next came Bill O' Reilly, who, put on a comedic performance beyond anything that I had expected. I once heard Glenn Beck say not many people know just how funny the man is, and I was one of them. So was the little nine-year-old girl who was sitting behind me, who had the most delicious giggle every time Bill made fun of the oiled pelican on Time's cover. O'Reilly could have his own comedy hour.
What was great about The Bold and Fresh Tour
... is that good decent people can take their children and actually get a reason to discuss politics. It was a first for my son and I. And the ticket stubs will be kept as a very wonderful memento of how MUCH it cost for a beer and a popcorn...
No,..seriously, if I could have sold my Coke on E-bay, I would have had say that Lady Gaga's lips touched it to make back my money.
At the end of the show, they both come out and ribbed each other. Bill was asking the packed house to consider the sanity of a man who tells the world he hates soccer and FOX is seen in over 90 countries, And then, when Bill told him that St. Louis was the biggest soccer town in the United States (who's soccer team has gone bankrupt) of course Beck replied, "St. Louis YOU SUCK!"
Bill instantly jumped in, to put the ball in the basket and said..."Good Night everybody!" ---winning the contest, of perfect comebacks. If you had not have heard what Glenn was talking about---soccer---you might have been offended.
Yes, if Beck is attacked, it will probably be a soccer ball to the head. I suggest he get a helmet. Better yet, why not share the pain? Sell hats with "soccer sucks" on them.
In conclusion, Bill O'Reilly expressed that even though we have major problems, he has faith in the American people to bring the Unites States back into a sensible balance...Glenn Beck on the other hand has a bunker and gold, filled with plenty of chalk.
After the show let out, we RAN to beat the crowd, only to get stuck in the parking lot for an hour. While sitting in the parking lot and discussing a possible nuclear attack, my son said: "What are you going to do mom if we get hit? You either get out of town, or die."
My son is pragmatic, unlike his mother who can think of a different angle on just about anything. I have lots of bottled water...and a map to Bush's farm in South America.
I also remember asking an AIG agent when I was taking out a life insurance on my husband.."So, is there any possibility that AIG will go out of business?"
"Are you kidding? It's the biggest insurance company in the world!"
And there's the difference...AIG...did fail. And if they can fail, then the United States can be attacked by a nuclear weapon. Cheney said so, Bush said so...I'm sure Obama knows it...and he treats the danger just as he treats the immigration problem...if it will serve his power, then it's collateral damage.
And that's what Beck so brilliantly is trying to teach us. You can't depend on conservative talk show hosts to save the country...they can, as Glenn says: connect the data dots,...entertain us, but that's about it.
The rest of us, have to decide...to fight for our kids. So be bold and fresh yourself, and buy your tickets next time they are in town.
I had such a good time, I might even paste my ticket stubs on an old soccer ball, so if I survive a nuclear blast, I'll have a good memory to reflect upon.
(Nobody else will make this stuff up.)
