On his program today, Glenn Beck stipulated the we will go down in history as "a suicidal nation" because we won't "take back" all of our federal land in the western states to exploit the natural resources. He describes those resources as "Fort Knox" and alleges that to not blanket mine and drill is going to literally cause the Russians or the Chinese to march in after we are "economically bankrupt" and "take it" in some sort of international foreclosure.
"We've been talking about health care for a year and American's don't want it!"
He has lamented the "lack of rationality" in America. Excellent. I'd like to remind you all of this one:
By 11 minutes into this program, Beck has likened the Obama's administration's environmental protection proposals to erecting "a statue of Stalin," played the intro to "the Andy Griffith Show" while decrying suggested fishing restrictions and mocks federal dietary recommendations by eating a piece of what he calls "fatty fat fat pie."
"You might have a heart attack, but you'll die with a smile on your face."
The obvious arguments against the Right will not work against those with clearly diagnosable insanity.
