It started a few days ago when I read some screamin' liberal (liar) media report of the Glenn Beck gathering in Florida last weekend. The moron was fearful of Beck, of course, but what caught my attention was something else the guy said that had a ring of truth…
It was about Beck calling people to action and the resulting personal enrichment he was getting for it from books sales and appearances, not to mention ratings. I had to admit that it was slightly troubling that Beck might be profiting from the many crises created by the incompetent and crooked Obanimal and his pack of dogs.
Then yesterday, Beck mentioned that he would be conducting seminars next year on how to mobilize and win. "Fine," I screamed, "As long as you don't charge for them!"
Then today something real happened… Beck was talking to some financial guy from Britain (which automatically makes him less credible), and Beck proposed a value-added tax. I started yelling every swear word I could think of, but then I paused for a moment when it sunk in that not only had Beck proposed a value-added tax, he had done so matter-of-factly.
No conservative/libertarian would ever do such a thing, much less do so blithely. Period.
There have been a few times over the years that I have become unglued at Beck's hand. One that comes to mind is also current.
Beck is now playing up the "global warming" fraud that's been uncovered, as he well should. The problem is that last year I heard him tell someone that he believed in global warming, and no, I didn't misunderstand and my memory isn't fuzzy – because I started screaming then too.
So the question is: when is enough enough? I mean, I've never really liked Beck but he's right about the overall problems and who's responsible for them, and he's not partial to Republicans the way most conservatives are so he's not all bad. And he hasn't cried in some time, so that's a plus, but I not only don't trust someone who would propose such a hideous tax, I feel I can never trust him because now his idea is out there.
I can only hope he'll feel the kind of heat he wants us to put on Congress and the President because any new taxes are unacceptable, and a value-added tax is unforgivable.
