Bad decision for WOR Radio. Problem with rngiats is due to NYC's liberal atmosphere and attitudes. They couldn't appreciate or comprehend the facts as they were presented by Mr. Beck. He is an intellectual and, unfortunately, now the rest of us have to find out the truth from some other avenues. Please, WOR, do no ever remove Steve Malzberg or Michael Savage from your station. They, too, are voices of reason and pure common sense!!!


, has no back-up, proof, nothing to show the truth to the stmaetents. I can usually find the actual sources who he as based something either good or bad on. On most of the stmaetents he is dead wrong, actually lying. For me, the really scary part is that people don't know about critical thinking. Sure, it can take some time, but if someone makes a rather out-there comment or quote. But, for everyone, no matter their politics, they/we should all stop long enough from bashing people and track down the comment. You can only have so many times that Fox mixes up footage and shows his last attempt at a rally with footage from a different season an and so on. And, where he shows us a photograph of the President not saluting at the Unknown Soldier memorial, when if fact, they are not at the memorial and the reason the soldiers are saluting is that his is entering the area. Perfect military protocol.In the end, his hateful and vindictive behavior may bother me, but, I will fight to the death for his right to do so (kind of bastardized Voltaire, sorry.) However, I will not fight for him to lie and just smear people. I have never understood why people join in and listen to hatred, rather than take that time and find out the truth of things, and work to make our country even better.A while back I was sent a clip of him talking about how New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona, and the most southern part of California have a large Latino population. And, why did they go to those areas. Well, the word Latino covers over 20 countries, but mostly it was because of the US started war with Mexico. In the end, the US had done so well, that we kept a large part of Mexico. They became, eventually, New Mexico, Arizona and so on. They have in their state constitutions that English and Spanish are the official state languages. That was guaranteed to them by the US Federal Government if they would not fight further and would become US citizens, and, yes, they could have both languages as they do as their official language.He went on to say that when the US forces were overrun at the Alamo, it only strengthened the country's military to get Texas back. Well, actually, Texas was part of Mexico. It was a civil war in that one of Mexico's northern provinces, Texas, wanted to succeed from the Mexican Union. Eventually, Texas did leave the country of Mexico. And, here again, Beck gets it wrong, It did not become a US territory, it was an independent republic, and that is what joined the union. He also did not know that during the Revolutionary War, that Vermont was already an independent republic. (Though, that one we learn in high school and we all forget things. He also did not know of the four states and territories that no longer exist, though, there are federal legal cases between the territory of Franklin (which was about a year away from becoming a full state, when it was divided up between the other states. Those laws, the Federal ones between a territory and the Federal Government are still on the books, but I haven't found anyone who can tell me if they can be used in another trial to show precedence.)So, turn off the comedian, Comedy Central is funnier. Lose the hatred and the yelling and everything that he does. None of it can be good for our souls and our heads.And, now that the details of his proposed gathering in DC, where the money goes to the veterans, some people are wondering what is really happening here. Other then that is when his new book comes out. Though they do not have a permit as of yet, it is not inexpensive they have had to release all of the details of the fund raising. It seems that nothing goes to the vets, until the enttire production is paid for. I produce those things all of the time. He better hope he brings in millions of dollars if he really wants to have money for the vets. Also, if he speaks and if Palin speak, they are both taking there current speaking fee. He said it was a union rule. It is not. His agent has to file, literally, one piece of paper to the union and they are fine, they can speak and not take in the few hundred thousand of dollars that they plan to do so.Damn, I promised myself I would not get sucked into this, but, he is just so vile, it is tough to be what our God wants us to be when we hear pure evil coming at us. Best plan, don't listen, next, if you do or you get one of the very odd and full of lies email messages, take the time and find the truth to each item that is mentioned and send it back to whom ever sent it to you. Have a very good week and a good summer week-end.
