      Actually pretty good typing. I understood it. I read something about making typing easier. Ask your computer expert to help you use – Autocorrect for Frequently Used Text.

      But as well as correcting mis-spelled words, AutoCorrect can be used to enter shortcuts for frequently used text:-
      Open Microsoft Word and click the Microsoft Office icon found in the top left hand cornerSelect “Word Options” from the bottom of the menuClick “Proofing”, then “AutoCorrect Options”In the “Replace Text as you type” enter a shortcut – for example, I might enter #gb to automatically fill in the word “Glenn Beck”Enter as many shortcuts as you like. When you are finished, click “Ok” to end
      Voila! The next time you type your new Shortcut Code, Word automatically fills in the rest!
      This can be handy for automatically entering long repeatedly used URL’s, addresses, anything you don’t like to type again and again!

      If you can still speak normally you could get “Dragon Naturally Speaking” voice recognition software for your computer.  With that you wouldn’t have to type; you could just talk, & it will type for you.

      As for the insanely stupid idea of courts martialing our troops over talking about their Christian faith, I’ve been told that the Pentagon has reconsidered and will not be implementing that regulation.  I’ve not verified that just yet, but I think it’s accurate.  Honestly I think that once word got out about the idea the backlash was so huge they had to either shelve the idea or watch their military disintegrate right before their eyes!  Personally if I were the Commander-in-Chief I would find out who made the decision to implement that policy in the 1st place & bust him down to 2nd Lieutenant for his incredibly poor judgement!  (Though in this case it is likely that Obama himself had a hand in it!)

        To me there’s no doubt!  It’s Obama (the closet Muslim)   His intent is to destroy Christianiity, bankrupt America, decimate the military and support Al Queda as he is doing sending money and troops to Egypt, Syria and other Mediterranean countries!

    i call att uverse and they said i had to fill out a channel survey which i think is going to fall on deaf ears. :(

  • Cameron Vance

    Now, lets get them on some other major providers such as DirectTV and Verizon FIOS.

    (Verizon, PLEASE get The Blaze…Watching the blaze on the Roku is really irritating sometimes. (hiccups in the connection, I think.))

    Today I am stunned Cablevision my provider in Brooklyn, NY will carry The Blaze!
    This is going to be a Game Changer!  Congratulations Glenn!  The campaign is working everyone keep trying.

     I have called DirecTv twice and they don’t have any plans for adding The Blaze.  Too bad because they will be the losers in the end.  I have another year on my contract and then I will sign up with Dish or buy my contract out ahead of time.

      I agree with you 100%, and I am also a year away and will definately cancel Direct TV if they don’t add The Blaze to their line up.

    Glenn can you ask MagPul when they are going to start shipping retail their ArchAngel division replacement stocks for M91/30 Russian Rifles. I am waiting for my local FFL to have access to it so I can keep him in business???

    DirecTV told me that they don’t discuss programming decisions with its customers.  Why is that?  Do they not figure the concerns and desires of their customers is worth consideration?  I am seriously considering not being a DirecTV customer unless they at least do a survey to find out if their customers even want The Blaze…and SOON!  I feel they probably already know what we want, but their leftist board refuses to give us what we want.   I hear The Beatles warming up in the background…”shan na na naa, sha na na naa, hey, hey, hey! GOODBYE!”

    Congratulations to The Blaze!!!  Now if you could just get Comcast added to that list I’d be a happier man!

    This is GREAT NEWS!!!!!

    I don’t know if Glenn knows this but (speaking from the perspective of someone who has Optimum TV) Optimum is one of the most outspoken Obama supporters out there.

    I can’t afford the channel on Cablevison.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1647438883 Daniel Van Etten

    The problem is you have to be a preferred customer. The channel subscription is 10.00. As a member of the GB show, do i have to pay again? It doesn’t make sense.
