U.S. tax code allows for the deduction of… abortions?!
In case you needed further proof that United States tax code is in desperate need of reform, Glenn, Pat, and Stu ran through some of the wackiest tax deductions on this morning’s radio program. From clarinet lessons to abortions (?!), it’s hard to believe some of the bizarre things that qualify as a deduction. Check out Glenn’s reaction to the madness HERE.
Former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg believes he has “earned” his place in heaven
In an article published Tuesday, former New York City nanny – ahem mayor – Michael Bloomberg told the New York Times why he believes he has “earned” his place in heaven. Bloomberg’s confidence stems from the fact that he valiantly took on the obesity and smoking epidemics in New York City during his time as mayor. Additionally, he is pouring tens of millions of dollars into pro-gun control causes. MORE

Why did Glenn buy that movie studio in Texas? He has some plans…
A few years ago, Glenn left New York City, moved to Texas, and bought a movie studio. A lot of people were confused. Some thought he was crazy. But Glenn has big dreams, unlimited creativity… and a movie studio that is about to be put to use. The Hollywood Reporter recently sat down with Glenn to find out exactly what he has planned for Mercury Studios. READ

Do the ends ever justify the means?
Glenn has expressed concern over the comments he has been seeing on social media calling for an armed response in the conflict in Nevada. The concern wasn’t over the comments necessarily but the overwhelming sense that good people, who believe in freedom and small government, will be caught between violent, anti-government fringe groups who offer chaos and progressive, big government groups who take control under the guise of safety. On Tuesday’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn once again explained why a peaceful protest is the solution. WATCH

Which path do you choose: One of violence or one of peace with God
As tensions in Nevada escalated over the weekend and various groups handled the conflict differently, Glenn planted his flag – declaring violence does not solve anything and a peaceful approach is necessary.

But on radio this morning, Glenn offered some historical context for his position, and he asked his listeners to choose a path: One of violence or one of peace with God. WATCH
