Coke, Candy and ... Plan B?

Um, so is our goal in 2017 to get rid of human interaction altogether?

What’s happening?

Based on the reasoning behind the new vending machines placed on some college campuses, that’s what it sounds like. Students at schools including Stanford and UC Davis can now anonymously buy “morning-after” contraception in vending machines, a safe space that doesn’t involve talking to another human being.

The “Wellness to Go” vending machine holds pain reliever, condoms and Plan B contraception.

Glenn’s take:

Shockingly enough, Glenn couldn’t help getting a little sarcastic about this story. He wondered if we’re simply trying to eliminate anything that could possibly make us uncomfortable.

“Wouldn’t it be great if you could live in a judgment-free space your whole life?” he quipped. “No matter what you did, no one would ever … say, ‘That was stupid, wasn’t it?'”

GLENN: Do you remember when you got a Coke and a pack of M&M's from a vending machine? Man, thank goodness we got rid of those evil sugary snacks in schools and college campuses during the Obama years. Boy, oh, boy, have you seen the numbers on obesity? It's way down. Or, exactly the same, or a little higher.

Michelle Obama was worried about American kids being just too fat. And so she helped push through a law to replace the Twix that everybody wanted with a carrot stick, that nobody wanted.

Now some state colleges are moving on from obesity to attacking a new problem, like the embarrassment and shame, specifically the embarrassment college women may feel when they have to go to a pharmacy and ask for an expensive morning-after pill, because they had unprotected sex with someone the night before. And they have to actually go up and talk to a human being and say, "Can I have that pill?" They have to face the judgmental glare of a pharmacist or another customer in line.

Unthinkable. I mean, are there no safe spaces for the consequences of promiscuous sex? Is there nothing? I need an empathy tent.

It's an outrage, right? What is a caring university to do? Well, they're going to do to -- they're going to put a discreet, convenient, safe space where co-eds can skip past all that awkward judgey human interaction thing and get the pregnancy-blocking drugs they so desperately need.

How about a vending machine? Yes, that's exactly what they're going to do. And they've called it Wellness To Go. It sells condoms, morning-after pills, and, of course, Advil for the hangovers. Well, that sounds like wellness to go, doesn't it?

Wellness To Go vending machines, they are real. Stanford is the latest of a handful of colleges leading the charge on this effort. A female student at UC Davis said, a lot of students like the judgment-free space.

I bet you do. Wouldn't it be great if you could live in a judgment-free space your whole life? No matter what you did, no one would ever, ever, ever question you or look down on you or say, "Well, that was stupidity, wasn't it?" Man.

She goes on, quote, you don't have to feel the pressure of interacting with people. Oh, my gosh. I never thought of that.

You know what also would stop that? If we just got rid of all of the people, that I'd never have to talk to people or interact with them ever again.

We are trying to accomplish something truly remarkable in human history. I think the Nazis did it. Stalin also did it a little bit. Mao just a pinch of this as well.

We're attempting to eliminate anything that we don't like, anything that makes us feel guilty, uncomfortable, in kind of feeling that we don't like, any consequence, any responsibility for our own actions. I mean, Mao never took the responsibility of killing, what was it? What was it? 25 million in five years on his farming experiment, he was like, eh, he was in his safe zone. Trying to make life one never-ending pleasure crews is not what life is really about. Not only is it impossible, it's dangerous. And it is literally killing our society.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
