Big News for Animal Masseuses, Auctioneers and Fishing Guides

The market in Washington state is flooded with jobs requiring a license --- animal masseuse, auctioneer, boxing announcer, fishing guide, landscape architect, manicurist and horse floater, to name a few. They just can't keep up with the demand.

"So here's the thing, Washington is deciding now in the Washington House of Representatives . . . that they have too many people applying for a license. They don't need to have everybody applying for a license. So those occupations are targeted for de-licensing," Glenn said Wednesday on radio.

Which, of course, begs the question, Why was a license needed in the first place?"

"Now, what a ridiculous premise and world we live in, that an animal masseuse, up until this thing supposedly passes, needed to have a license," co-host Stu Burguiere said insightfully.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN:  Excuse me.  Excuse me.  I have some big news.  I have some big news if you're an animal masseuse.

(chuckling)

Now, I don't know how many animal masseuses there are in our listening audience

STU:  Well, we're the number three biggest talk radio show, but we're the number two among animal masseuses.

GLENN:  Are we?  

STU:  Yes.  

GLENN:  I would like to talk to an animal masseuse.  A licensed animal masseuse.

STU:  Only licensed animal masseuses can be members of the National Association of Animal Masseuses.

GLENN:  If you are an animal masseuse, an auctioneer, a boxing announcer, a fishing guide, a landscape architect, manicurist, or horse floater --

STU:  That sounds dirty.  I'll be honest, that sounds dirty.

GLENN:  What?

STU:  I don't know what that is.  Jeffy probably does.

GLENN:  It's like a fluffer for horse porn?

STU:  That's kind of what it sounds like, right?

JEFFY:  Depending on what sites you go to?

GLENN:  What is a horse floater?

STU:  We actually did discover this on Pat and Stu the other day.  It appears to be something equivalent to a horse dentist.

PAT:  Kind of.  Yeah.

JEFFY:  They call it a horse floater because the float is the file they file the horses teeth down with.

PAT:  And why that's called a file, no one knows.

JEFFY:  We don't know.

GLENN:  So here's the thing:  Washington is deciding now -- in the Washington House of Representatives, so this is Washington state, that they have too many people applying for license.  They don't need to have everybody apply for a license.  So those --

JEFFY:  That doesn't sound like government.

GLENN:  -- occupations are targeted for de-licensing.

STU:  Now, what a ridiculous premise and world we live in, that an animal masseuse -- up until this thing supposedly passes, needed to have a license.

GLENN:  Or a landscape architect.

STU:  Yeah, you judge them by their work.

GLENN:  Now, hang on just a second.  Maybe a landscape architect because maybe on huge projects, they could cause mudslides or things like that, if they don't know what they're doing with the land.

PAT:  They could also mess up your property if they don't what an they're doing.

GLENN:  But that's your property.

PAT:  Yeah.

GLENN:  Depending on the scale of things.  But an animal masseuse.  Come on.  I need a license to be an animal masseuse.

GLENN:  What is that?  Is that in case the animals are walking down.  I don't know.  That looks like a shady massage parlor.

JEFFY:  Well, some states won't even let you do it if you have -- if you've gone to school for horse massage.  Then they make you go back to become a veterinarian so that you actually have a license to be able to massage the horses.  Just saying.

STU:  Jeffy knows too much about this.

GLENN:  My grandpa was a jack-of-all-trades.  He did a little bit of everything.

STU:  Horse floating?

GLENN:  He probably did.  He was a vet, but he wasn't a vet.  He was an auctioneer, but he wasn't -- I remember him doing the big cattle auctions.  And he could do the whole -- he could do all that.  He didn't have a license for that.  He was a sheriff.  He worked -- he was a machinist.  He worked for Boeing.

STU:  You do need a license to be a sheriff.

GLENN:  Yes.  No, but I'm saying --

JEFFY:  You don't.  A sheriff, that's an elected office.

PAT:  Think of all the people --

GLENN:  You don't go to school for it.

STU:  You need a badge.

GLENN:  You need a badge.

STU:  That's the thing.

GLENN:  But why would you need a license to be an animal masseuse?  Are you good at it or not?

STU:  Right.  And, first of all, who is going to answer?  The horse?  Because that's the one that would need to know.  I don't know how they would know if you're good.

JEFFY:  Well, the owner would.

STU:  How would the owner --

JEFFY:  If you have an animal, you know the animal --

GLENN:  I'll tell you, I'll sit in the stall smoking cigarettes and watching Amazon, and then someone will knock on the door, you almost done?  

Yep, almost done in here.  

STU:  And the horse is like, I know you're not going to massage.  

GLENN:  He's loving it.  He's loving it.

STU:  Another crazy one on there that we haven't mentioned is boxing announcer.

GLENN:  Yeah, why?

STU:  So you can announce football or baseball without a license, but for boxing you've got to have a license.  That's really important.  Well, you know if it's the right hand or the left hand.  You got to tell.  Take the test and let us know.  I mean, that is ridiculous.

GLENN:  See, in my -- in my -- when I first got into it -- and Pat too, and I bet you too, Jeffy.

JEFFY:  Yeah.  Yes.

GLENN:  We used to have what was called our third phone license.  Yeah, your third class license.

JEFFY:  To get in.

GLENN:  And it was a radio telephone license.  That's why it was called your third phone.  First phone meant you could fix the transmitter.  But you had to have certain basic understanding of how the transmitter worked to be able to on the radio.

STU:  Right.  Which is a bad practice which ended.

GLENN:  Yes.

PAT:  You had to know if the station was in compliance with its effective radiated power at all times.

GLENN:  Correct.  Correct.

PAT:  Now, I forget that formula a good time ago.  But they eliminated that too a long time ago.

JEFFY:  Yeah.

PAT:  Yeah.

GLENN:  So now you don't need to have a license.  But I will tell you that I talked to Ted Koppel, and he said maybe we should have a license for journalists.  Maybe you shouldn't just be able to post things online, you shouldn't just be able to start a blog without a license --

STU:  That's the progressive mindset, though, right?

JEFFY:  Right.  That sure is.

GLENN:  It is.

STU:  The mindset is, it's only legitimate if there's a license.  The government gives it its legitimacy.  And that's where the complete split it.

GLENN:  And here's the problem:  I was talking to a friend of mine.  He said, you know, Glenn, you know, I know -- you know, I know if you're into liberty and freedom, but there are some things that we all have to agree on.  For instance,, you know, schooling.  Schooling, I mean, you know, you say that you want freedom of choice to be able to go into whatever school you want.  But, Glenn, most people are not smart enough to figure out what school their kids need.

And I said, wow, is --

PAT:  Such a progressive frame of mind.  

GLENN:  Is that an awful frame of mind.  

JEFFY:  No kidding.  

PAT:  We're the parent.

GLENN:  First of all, most people -- most people absolutely are smart enough.  There's no need for them to even think about it because my job is to just put you up at the bus stop.  So I stopped thinking about it.  Do they know what's right for their kid?  Yeah, when their responsibility is given back to them and you're responsible for raising that kid.  Yeah, they are smart enough to figure that out.  And I said to that person, so what happens if I was in charge and I thought you were putting your kid in the wrong school?  Should I be able to say that you're not smart?  Well, no.  Because I'm smart enough to figure that out.

Oh.

STU:  Hmm.  And that's the thing.  Conservatism.  That thing.  And progressivism breaks down when you say -- when you think you can make that choice.  Because the point is to allow the person who actually is stupid to make the stupid choice.  That's okay.  It's their freaking life.  And if that's what they want to do with their life, they want to make continual stupid choices, as I point at Jeffy, that is okay.  You have to be able to let go and let that happen sometimes.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
