If you’ve been paying any attention lately, SEIU is neck-deep in a kissy-face relationship with Barack Obama and his administration. And Andy Stern, their leader, has so much influence with Obama that apparently they are able to have the lion’s share of influence over the healthcare reform legislation. “Workers of the world unite!” How is this happening? How are 2 million union members able to over-ride the rest of us?
Well, this is just one of the many topics Glenn tackled today in a segment for which I had a couple of alternative titles: “Beck: We’re in Opposite World,” or “Beck Begs Americans to Wake the F*** Up!” Oh, well, I think the message will get across either way.
Since when have our troops been a budgetary concern, especially since they’re actively involved in a war overseas? Oh, yeah… since Obama decided to consider budgetary items ONLY as it concerns the troops and support for them.
I don’t have family in Afghanistan or Iraq, but I have many friends who are there, and they corroborate Glenn’s outrage. Obama dithers while troops die…all the while he plans yet another party for the White House, where all of Hollywood’s elite stars are invited to attend. What a sham.
To make things worse, I have to ask if you remember the civilian Blackwater contractors who were murdered, burned, mutilated and hung from a bridge in Fallujah. Do you? Well apparently some Navy SEALs found the high-value operative behind that atrocity. But what is the current administration doing? The detainee who is responsible for those atrocities told authorities he was punched in the face during questioning when they were found. Somebody call these douchebags a waaahmbulance.
Last week, Glenn Beck had on authors Rebeccca Pepin and Ruth McGlothlin, of the new book “Faces of Freedom.” This book is dedicated to 52 heroes who have fought for freedom in the current war on terror, and all proceeds of the book sales go to the Fisher House and the the Wounded Warrior Project. If you want to contribute to this effort, or buy the book, please visit RebeccaPepin.com.
Rebecca is from Canada, but is a newly-naturalized citizen of the United States, and is very proud to have been a part of this project. An extra note about the book is that it includes a tribute to Navy SEAL Danny Dietz, who was so proudly honored by Marcus Luttrell in his book “Lone Survivor” about the largest single loss of Navy SEALs ever.
Ruth’s son, Ryan, is also honored in this book, and he carried a poem in his pocket titled “Don’t Quit.” Ryan signed up but never got to serve, however. He signed up yet his life was cut short before he could fulfill his dream of service to this country.
