The 9-12 Project website
GLENN: A GlennBeck.com update.
VOICE: Do you want to stop playing a game? No more partisan politics, just common sense. This is the 9/12 Project.
GLENN: Well, the Web traffic is an onslaught on The9/12Project.com. A lot of 9/12ers now. Our special interest group is now 162,652 strong, and it's growing every day. 95% of the traffic is coming from the U.S. and Canada. We do get Web traffic now from 123 different countries, and France actually has 74 people checking it out. Oh, the nerve, huh? Aside from the ground swell of local groups starting to form, there is much concern regarding a couple of bills and we are going to look into them for you. And Stu, can you make sure everybody knows that I want to have answers on this on Monday's show. H.R. 875 and H.R. 1388. One is the national service law which, there's a lot of stuff going around the Internet saying they are going to force people to volunteer their time and stuff. Don't buy into this stuff until we know for sure. I will give you the full detail on it on Monday. Then there's also the Food Safety Modernization Act. I mean, who doesn't want food saf! e and modern? But apparently this one has -- there's a lot of farmers that are upset about this one because there are seed laws. And I told you about genetic seeds. Look, there's a lot of great stuff about hybrid foods, but there's also a lot of really, really bad stuff about hybrid foods and here's the bad stuff. Because it costs, for instance, Dow Chemical a lot to make a hybrid plant and it does give a lot more corn let's say, you know, per acre, because it costs so much money, it doesn't reproduce because Dow needed to find a way to make sure that you couldn't just buy seeds once; you had to buy them every year to pay for all of the research to make the corn like this. Well, the other problem with it is that it doesn't reproduce; when you cross-pollenate, it kills the reproductive cycles of the other corn that is heirloom corn, you know, the natural "Not screwed up by man" kind of corn. Well, this bill apparently has some things to do with buying genetic seeds! and everything else and what you have to do, and I'm telling you, you know, I believe in genetic food. I believe in making sure that we can grow as much food on each crop, but I certainly don't believe in forcing people to use that, and there should be zones to keep that kind of food from cross-pollenating with the other kind of food. What farmer is with me?
So anyway, we'll find out all the details on all of these here coming up.
There is a digital tea party happening and more information is coming, I guess on the website. A national clog Washington day. The 9/12ers are saying great idea about the tea bags. Don't mail them into Washington, though. Instead of mailing the actual tea bag, take a photo of one and send it in or empty the tea bag and send it in. If you do anything in an envelope, they are not going to see I. If you send it on their servers, they will see it. You clog their servers and they will see that. They will get the message that there's a lot of people there. The post office must deliver the mail, no weird substance in it, though. Actually since 9/11 the mail doesn't go -- it's going to be a bunch of people off site in a warehouse in Virginia that actually sees everything.
Also July 4th, 2009, surround your state capitols. The mall in D.C. and so on. Marchforliberty.org has been on our website at the912Project.com. Also April there is the Second Amendment Martha people are trying to put together. And I wanted to leave you with this one letter that came in. Said, dear 9/12ers, I'm a 52-year-old African-American who was a staunch Democrat until President Bush gave his speech after 9/11. He won my heart and my mind on that evening and I still get choked up whenever I remember his inspired words. He spent the rest of his presidency keeping those promises to us, whether or not it was popular. I hope he goes down as one of our greatest presidents in history. Now you see the Democrats attempt to destroy the morals and work ethic of our great country breaks my heart and strengthens my resolve to fight for the greatness of our history and the will of most of our citizens. I want to express a deep gratitude to all those who will come tog! ether. You know what? This comes from Las Vegas, and I think -- I appreciate the sentiment of this letter, but I want you to know the 9/12 Project is not about Republicans and Democrats. And while George Bush, while he kept us safe, he really did at least from Islamic terror, there were also some other things that he did that were really not so good that we're paying for today. Let's stop those things. Let's stop arguing about the Republicans and the Democrats. Let's stop tearing George Bush apart or putting him on a pedestal. Let's stop doing the same thing to Barack Obama. Let's talk about the principles that built this nation. Let's talk about the principles that when they're rediscovered and applied every day by individuals in this country, we will then know who to vote for and who to give our power to in Washington because we'll know and they'll know. They'll stand for those twelve values and those nine principles that make most of us, whether we know it or n! ot, a 9/12er.
VOICE: Do you want to stop playing a game? It's our country. Be part of standing up and taking it back. This is the 9/12 Project. Visit the912project.com for more.
GLENN: Let me go to Nancy on WTAM. Hi, Nancy, welcome to the Glenn Beck program.
CALLER: Hello. God bless you for waking up the silent majority. Before I ask my question, could I make a comment?
CALLER: I get my children and my grandchildren an Easter gift every year and it's always hard for the adults what to get them and it's usually a shirt or something. This year I ordered from the National Center For Constitution Studies each of them a set of the Glenn Beck special which I urge everybody to get and give for birthday or whatever. They're fabulous.
GLENN: You know, I didn't know there was a Glenn Beck special. What is that?
CALLER: It's the Real George Washington, Real Thomas Jefferson, Real Benjamin Franklin, 5,000 Year Leap, a copy of the Constitution and a DVD about liberty.
GLENN: And it's -- how much is it?
CALLER: $50 plus shipping.
GLENN: That's unbelievable. That's great. Thank you so much. Hang on, Nancy. We don't have time for your question. We'll come back and get your question. By the way, number one at Amazon.com, the 5,000 Year Leap. Number one, Amazon.com. Read it.
