    Well i’ll tell Obama and the left this, my dad worked most of his life, he grew up in the depression, his father left his mother and 4 kids to raise in the middle of that depression so he had to go to work or find whatever work he could along with his sister and two brothers. My dad started a retail store when he came home from the war,  WWII, we lived in government quansett huts in the park in our city as other soldiers families did until we could afford to buy a home, and my dad at the age of 79 decided to start another business, he literally built a 180 unit storage facility and if that wasn’t enough he took on a U-Haul delearship to put with the Storage Units.  Then my dad at age 80 had to have heart surgery and my mom by his side ran that business mostly by herself.  There was no help from anyone and certainly not the

    “nanny state”.  This was my dad’s idea, he procured the loans, he built it, he ran it, and then because of his health he had to sell it, but he did so at a profit, that dirty word that Obama hates so much “profit” eeeek.  Then they moved back down to California where they would be closer to me and finally retire after working for most of his 83 years, and the left wants to tell me that anyone over 65 really isn’t useful enough.I wouldn’t give you all the tea in China for someone on the left including Obama the most unuseful person I can think of in America, the man who has done the most damage to this country to the point almost of no return and it will take a miracle to turn it around… no thanks Obama you’ve done enough for us over the age of 65….

    glenn beck takes this cut and paste statement out once again to try and attack the President?!
    Oh, ok….

    Let us bring out some of glenn’s old “low lights”…
    1.  Threatening to kill Michael Moore!
    2.  Making Anti-Semitic remarks about Jewish Rabbis!!
    3.  Mocking the President’s daughter!!!

    glenn beck is a tasteless douchebag who I was happy to see lose his job at Fox News and I continue to watch his career wither away as his fat ass grows bigger with every candy bar and french fry!!!!

       I take no pleasure in the failure of the left..As a student of history, I know what will happen. Liberals are only happy when they are ripping on the successful. How can anybody complain about unemployment, yet disdain the rich? Do you suppose tose “occupiers” ever employ themselves in any activity that involves profit, not SPONGING AND WHINING?  i   Think Not!

        Answer me this…
        Why are the Republicans,who are all about “building it” on their own using a facility in Tampa Bay that received over 60 million in government money?
        Why are they using the security force in Tampa Bay that uses 50 million dollars in federal money?
        Are they holding this convention on their own? NO!
        Maybe we should ask the Republicans to stop “SPONGING” government money while “WHINING” about government spending at the same fricking time!!!
        I guess for Kurt Van Luven, ignorance is definitely bliss!

          Oh shuuuut uuuup.  For someone who despises Beck as much as you profess to (I think you’re secretly in love with him), you spend a whole lot of time here on his website whining, crying and babbling incoherently.  Why?  Go away if you hate him so much.  I dislike Chris Matthews. Do I spend an inordinate amount of time at his website harassing his fans?  Hell, no.  I steer clear.  So what’s your problem?  Obsessed much?  Have you ever been accused of being a stalker?  Seek help, you freakin nasty wingnut.

            Almost entertaining.
            Question for you though…
            Do you find it difficult to toss glenn’s salad while typing at the same time?

        • Perry Schjolin

          Typical liberal. If you can’t debate issues, name-call. By the way, the Republican’s had to “rent” the facility like everyone else who uses it. Sponging is what Michelle Obama is doing with more twice as many servants than any other first lady.

          • Anonymous

            Whose money was used to build the facility?
            Would it be their without government money? NO!!!
            Did Tampa ask for and use 50 million to provide security for the RNC? YES.
            P.S. Attacking the First Lady. You are fucking pathetic!!! The office of the First Lady had been around for decades. The size of the office and her security were not inflated because it was Michelle Obama.
            Attacking the First Lady. You are one pathetic little scum bag!!!

          The Republican party paid for their use of the stadium like everyone who uses it and gave the city of Tampa well over the cost of the extra police and security needs unlike Obama who stiffs the cities with the cost of security for every event he attends including a campaign fundrasier which resulted in the closing of two beaches
          in the height of the summer. restulting in lost income.  He also
          closed down a food stand for his escapede at the Iowa State Fair
          resulting in a private vendor losing almost a half million in receipts.

            Nice try in dodging the facts.
            1. FACT: The RNC Convention took place in a federally funded arena.
            2. FACT:The RNC did not give Tampa the needed money, because Tampa accepted and used over 50 million of federal money.
            3. FACT: Every standing President receives the same level of security from the Secret Service. This includes every Republican and Democrat incumbent.
            4. FACT: President Obama is not in charge of his security and idiots like you who try and use a standing President’s security detail against them shows how naive and stupid they really are!!!

    Harlan Sanders was once asked why he kept working even when he was old.  His reply was “A man will rust out long before he wears out”.  When Harlan was first franchising his chicken, he once went to several franchisees and took his friers away from them because they were not cooking that chicken the way they were supposed to.  His recipe was changed and tested by his family as time went on and finally one member of the family said Yes that’s fine quit changing it.  He then settled on the recipe and wrote it above the doorway in the kitchen.

    I went to work in 1954 for W. L. Lyons in Louisville, Ky., owner of a brokerage firm.  Harlan Sanders was a customer and personal friend of Mr. Lyons.  One day after Mr. Lyons had walked Mr Sanders to the door he turned to me, laughing hardily, and said “Can you imagine that Harlan wants to franchise that chicken restaurant.  Some people had big ideas”.  This gave me the inspiration to take chances and develop  a very successful business when women were not owning construction businesses.

    My dad did not build a business – not that he didn’t want to do so. He did, however, build his own success with the help of my mom. Both of them came from dirt poor families. They both worked hard – my dad in the Air Force and my mom both as a mother and a secretary. They endured long hours, little pay, and even lunches that a mouse would turn up its nose at. Perseverance and tenacity were engrained in their beings. Thus, they eventually bought their first home when I was about 8 years old. They went from renting to home ownership. They bought another home when we moved. My dad put in 20 years with the Air Force and another 25 with a good company. The hard work of my parents allowed them to retire with benefits. More importantly, they taught my brother and me to work for what we want. I had a paper route from 8 years old to 16. I detasseled corn, bailed hay, shoveled pig poo and even ran my own little yard work business to help pay for going to college. My dad, with my mom, built a successful life; they passed their good work ethics to their two sons. I am trying to pass what I learned onto my kids, although our educators seek to turn them into takers rather than givers.
