Now, here's a story I found: Surprising reasons you're not having sex. Here's the first one. Your bed isn't sexy anymore. We hear it over and over again the bed should be used for sex and sleep only. So why do we insist on bringing in third parties, laptops, PDAs, Law and Order, et cetera, et cetera. You know what, my doctor has actually told me that, under doctors' orders, nothing else in bed. He said just sleep. And I went, just sleep? And my wife said, you heard him; just sleep. "Your meds are stealing away your sex drive." Whoa. Surprised by that one. Reason number 3: You're not having sex anymore. Your crazy, busy life. (Crackling noise). "I'm in Cairo." Sex RX, I don't even know what that means -- oh, that means what you're supposed to do. I don't care about that one. Next one: You don't like your body. This isn't a new development. Never have. Lucky for me. A long time ago I decided I'm not having sex with me. "You've hit premenopause." Can I? Next one, "Your man's just not into that." Wait a minute. This might be written for women. "You're depressed." Yeah, because I'm not having sex anymore! The last one is "You're sick and tired." Now, wait a minute. It says because you have a thyroid condition. Wouldn't you know because don't your eyes pop out with a thyroid condition? Seriously don't you start looking like those dogs? No, like the pug dog, like Stu's dog, your eyes pop out if you have a thyroid condition. If your eyes are popping out, that's why you're not having sex. But it also says because you might be anemic. I'm anemic, almost had to have a blood transfusion a couple of weeks ago and you know what? I could have had sex on the blood transfusion table. I'm just, I'm a guy. Anemia's going to stop you, puhleez. You need to have a blood transfusion." Sure, can you just leave us alone for a second, Doc? I mean, here are some other reasons. "You're ugly." Hello! I'm not a sex expert but I'm -- you know, I'm thinking, you know, you're ugly and, you know, that's a tough one to overcome especially if you're a woman. If you're a guy, that's not hard to overcome. I'm sorry. That's just the way the world is. How many ugly guys have hot wives? Take me, for example. I don't know why she married -- I think it was low self-esteem. I do. No, really I think it was low self-esteem. I got in -- you know, you buy when the market is low. You know what I mean? While everybody is selling, you buy. And I think I got in there right at the right time. Low self-esteem, wait a minute, could go a little lower, she might come down to my price. Okay, sold! Now her self-esteem is going up. And if my income wasn't going up, she would have ditched me long ago. She would have gone, "Wait a minute, I think I was depressed when I married you." I'm just -- look. I'm not Tania, but I am a thinker.

Okay, so anyway, talking about ugly people. Ugly people, if you're a guy, you can get past it. I don't think you can as an ugly woman. No, I don't -- if you are an ugly woman, I apologize. Oh, you've got a double-cross because if you're an ugly woman, you're probably a Progressive as well. Oh, jeez. I'm sorry. Today's just not your day. But you know what? If you believed in God, you would know that there's going to be another chance for you. You don't have to be ugly in heaven. You are going to be your perfect self and there will be another perfect somebody waiting for you on the other side. Until that time....

Reason Number 2, you're morbidly obese. They didn't cover this one in the other article, but I think when you put surprising -- oh, no, it does say "Surprising reasons you're not having sex." That's not a surprising reason. If you're morbidly obese, there's not a single person that's in line, you know, sitting on that big marshmallow couch, "I'm just going to have some more Cheetos. Ooh, this couch looks tasty." There's nobody that is sitting there eating Cheetos, "I got Cheetos dust all over my throat and thinking, why doesn't anybody want to have sex with me." That doesn't happen. There's no surprise there. You are right, I'm sorry, I take it back. The surprise would be, "I'm on my marshmallow -- you what? You want to have sex with me?" But again the guys make out better than the ladies on this one. Two words: Kevin James. I mean, he married a model. It's Kevin James! Look at him! I defy you to name the fat woman married to some stud guy. Can you do it?

Women are so much better than guys. They are. They just are. They will see -- I don't know how they see past fat. I don't, but they do somehow or another. My wife said to me last night. I said, oh, honey, I'm just tired of being fat and disgusting. I've got to get into shape. And she said, you're not fat. And I said, oh, I love you, my little blind one. You are so great. And by the way, you gain an ounce and you are out of here.

Reason number 3, you haven't done all the chores around the house. That's the one, that's the surprising reason you are not -- you've never tied it to chores! That women can talk about how they want to be romanced and, oh, look at you -- no, uh-uh. They just want you to get the chores done. That's it. It's like, you are like a hamster. And you got to put your nose in that little thing to get the water to come out. You know what I mean? That little thing, you got to get the chores done. You put the nose up in the little -- and the water comes. That's the way it works. You're a hamster! You've got to do the whole chore thing and I mean, men don't do the whole chore thing, there are very few times when men are not in the mood. The unfortunate thing for guys is one time when you're not in the mood is once you've finished all the chores. Because all day you're like, it's my whole Saturday is gone! I've been running around doing these darn chores! (Grumbling). Okay!

Reason Number 4: "You just bought that 63-inch plasma screen." I mean, honey, I love sex and everything, but have you seen how big the TV is? This is fantastic! Reason Number 5: "The ogle factor. We're guys. We're pathetic. We'll ogle a mannequin. Have you seen the Victoria's Secret's mannequins? They are so incredibly hot. You, like, drive by and you're like, don't look, don't look, don't look! It's a mannequin, for the love of Pete. We ogle the mannequins. I don't want to ogle mannequins. You just do. You're a guy! Women don't understand that. "How come you never look at me like all the women at the mall." "I don't know. Maybe because you're not made of paper mache. I don't know! Happy Valentine's Day! Oh!

A town in Sweden is under fire after denying requests to ring church bells in the 1990s and the 2000s but recently approving a mosque's request to conduct a weekly Islamic call to prayer.

RELATED: Media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam bias sweeps THIS fact under the rug

Authorities in the town of Vaxjo in southern Sweden have given the local mosque a one-year permit to recite the call to prayer every Friday for about four minutes. But Fr. Ingvar Fogelqvist of St. Michael's, the local Catholic church located about a mile from the mosque, says similar requests to ring church bells were denied.

On today's show, Pat and Jeffy talked about this story and favorable bias toward the Muslim faith. The issue isn't that the Islamic call to prayer is allowed; it's that all religions are not being treated equally.

Somebody might want to check the temperature in hell, it might be just a tad chillier than normal.

If you missed Friday's episode of The Glenn Beck Program, you missed something you probably never thought you'd see in this timeline or any other. Glenn actually donned President Trump's trademark red "Make America Great Again" hat and laid out the case for why he thinks Trump will win in a landslide in 2020.

RELATED: The media's derangement over Trump has me wearing a new hat and predicting THIS for 2020

Bottom line: Nancy Pelosi and the mainstream media may have pushed Glenn to this point, but believe it or not, Trump's record will make this next election a walk in the park for number 45. At this point, the sitting president has done enough to earn even Glenn's vote.

Glenn broke down what he thought were the 10 biggest campaign promises that — unlike those made by most politicians — Trump actually kept.

10. Impose a 10% repatriation tax to bring jobs back to America

Not all of Trump's promises were good ones, but regardless of what the consequences may be — he did keep this one.

"Now, I think this one is dangerous," Glenn said on radio Friday. "He did it. Ten percent. Bring all of your money back into the United States. It will create jobs. Yes. It will also create inflation. But it's creating jobs."

9. Withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)

This has been one of Trump's most passionate issues.

"The stop the TPP. Uh-huh. Right. Sure you are. Uh-huh. Yes. He did," Glenn admitted.

8. Withdraw from the disastrous Paris Climate Accord

Glenn found himself eating crow on this.

"I'm on record saying he will never do that because his daughter is a huge global warming person and he only listens to the family. Eh. Wrong," Glenn said with a puff of crow feathers coming from his mouth.

7. Bring North Korea to the table and rein them in

This looked impossible. Not so.

"'I'm going to bring North Korea to the table.' Are you? Everybody has tried to do that," Glenn said. "Now, they're at the table. We don't know what's going to happen. So the result of that is unknown. But has anybody else done that?"

6. Stop over-regulation and jump-start the economy

It's the economy, stupid.

"Does anybody feel like America is beginning to get on track somewhat economically? You know why? Because he fulfilled another promise," Glenn said. "Stop over-regulating the American people. Give them their money. Give the companies the opportunity to expand and bring their money back into the country, and maybe they'll build buildings. Maybe they'll build offices. Maybe they'll build new products. Maybe they'll build new factories. Maybe they'll hire a bunch of people."

Glenn went on.

"Now, I know Seattle is trying to do everything they can to make sure everybody in their city is homeless and unemployed, but the rest of the country is enjoying the feeling of, wow, maybe things are going to be okay."

5. Reverse Obama's executive orders

If you're like Glenn, you've gotten used to politicians promising "no new taxes," but you can really tell they're lying if their lips are moving. Guess what? That's apparently not Trump.

"The executive orders? Yeah. He's reversed a lot of Obama's executive orders," Glenn said. "These are outrageous promises."

4. Pull out of the Iran nuclear deal

No big deal...

"'I'm going to cancel the Iran Deal.' Yep. None of these are small. You know, I've got maybe ten minutes. I think we can get that done in the first term. And they did," Glenn said.

3. Give tax cuts to middle-class Americans

Maybe this could have been better, but we'll take it.

"I don't like the tax cut. I think he could go a lot further," Glenn said. "But that's not even his job. His job is to sign things that Congress puts in front of him. Not to design it. You Republicans in Congress, you disgust me. You disgust me. 'Imagine what we could do if we had the House and the Senate and the White House.' I can imagine what you'll do — nothing. You'll do nothing."

2. Change strategy and defeat ISIS

The mainstream media have been radio silent on this.

"How about the president's — well, I know I can defeat ISIS. I know I can do it. I'll defeat ISIS. He did," Glenn said. "And did you notice no one in the press even talked about it? All of a sudden, we're not talking about ISIS anymore. How come? Oh, I know. President Trump. That's why."

1. Recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and relocate the US embassy

This one is a true game-changer.

"Now, every president will say to you, when he's running, 'I'm going to make Jerusalem the home.' Well, really? The home of the embassy. Really, are you? Because everybody says that, nobody does it. He did it," Glenn said. "And I think that's going to go down as the biggest game-changer possibly in my lifetime. This is going — it already is — it is changing the game in Iran."

Glenn continued.

"And when it does, this president is going to come out and say something directly to those people, that we support them," he said. "And that's going to add fuel to the fire. And you might see a regime change and a collapse of the Islamic regime in Iran. And it will be 100 percent Donald Trump that made that responsible. One hundred percent. You're going to see changes because of this. He kept that promise. A promise I said, he's not going to do that. Nobody is going to do that. He did."

One chapter of ISIS has ended, but another may be starting

For the most part, ISIS has fallen in Syria and Iraq. But before we celebrate the demise of this awful terrorist group, before we let our guard down, we should zoom out a bit, because ISIS is spreading. ISIS has largely just scattered out of the region as if someone turned on the kitchen lights and they scrambled.

RELATED: It IS About Islam: This Is a War Against Evil

The Wall Street Journal spoke with Rohan Gunaratna, head of the International Center for Political Violence and Terrorism Research at the Nanyang University in Singapore. “Although Islamic State's ideology has suffered, it still has a huge potential," he told them. “Islamic State has entered a phase of global expansion, very much the same way al Qaeda extended globally in late 2001."

ISIS has spread into West Africa, and throughout much of Southeast Asia, and, as is typical of ISIS, they have done it violently, with a sick venom.

The world is their potential rubble, and their fight is endless.

Again, from the Wall Street Journal: “One chapter of ISIS has finished and another is beginning," said Hassan Hassan, a specialist on Islamic State at the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy in Washington. “Their resurgence is coming sooner than expected."

The world is their potential rubble, and their fight is endless.

'The Handmaid's Tale' got it right, just with the wrong religion

Just in case The Handmaid's Tale's heavy-handed message wasn't already heavy-handed enough, a recent episode made it clear there's always room for further hysteria. Particularly, in relation to depictions of a “patriarchal society" run by Christian doctrine and determined by men — oh those dastardly men.

RELATED: Christian privilege is the new white privilege

The show appropriates Margaret Atwood of the same name, depicting a totalitarian society led by Christian doctrine in which women's bodies are controlled, and they have no rights. The story sounds familiar, but not in the same way Atwood and the show's creators have so smugly assumed.

Just as tone-deaf as 4th wave feminism itself, and tone-deaf in all the exact same places. Most notably, the show's heavy-handed indignation toward Christianity. Toward the patriarchy. Toward conservatives and traditional values. And just like 4th wave feminism, the show completely overlooks the irony at play. Because there is a part of the world where women and children are being raped and mutilated. In fact, in this very real place, the women or girls are often imprisoned, even executed, for being raped, and they are mutilated in unspeakable ways.

Theirs is a cruel, bloody, colorless life.

There is a place, a very real place, where women are forced to cover their entire bodies with giant tarp-like blankets, which is all the more brutal given the endless heat of this place. There is a place where women literally have one-third of the rights of men, a place where women are legally, socially and culturally worth less than men.

They cannot drive cars. They cannot be outside alone. They cannot divorce, they cannot even choose who they marry and often, they are forcibly married at a young age.

They are raped. A lot. Theirs is a cruel, bloody, colorless life. This is the life of tens, perhaps hundreds of millions of women. And, I'll tell you, their religion isn't Christianity.
