GLENN BECK PROGRAM
GLENN: I love this. This is one of my favorite Texan stories. This says it all. I think this should be the new American flag. It's got a cannon on it. The Mexicans came to try to take this cannon because they wanted this cannon back that we had won in some battle and they wanted the cannon back. They came to get it and the citizens, you know, attacked Mexicans and drove them all back across the border and then they had the -- they flew this flag for a while. It's got one star on it. It's got a picture of the cannon and then underneath it just says, "Come and take it." I love that.
STU: And you're saying you're actually going to fly that flag in Connecticut in front of your house?
GLENN: I got this one for the studio and I ask -- because I've been looking for it for a while and I finally found it at Columbia Flag and Banner down in Columbia, South Carolina when we were down there. I asked them, I said, I've been looking for this flag; can you find this flag for me? Guy's done research, he finally found it. This is the size it comes in. I'm having one made. I'm having a huge one made and I'm having it made for my house and I'm going to fly it -- first day I'm flying it, September 11th. I'm putting it on a giant, like, car lot, you know, car sales lot flagpole in front of my house. I'm having a huge one of these made and I'm flying it in front of my house on September 11th. I'm going to freak my neighbors out.
STU: Your town's going to love you, although I will say that combined with the vicious guard dog and the -- and all of the security in front of your house, with that flag as well that just has a giant cannon and says "Come and take it" flying in front of your house, there will be no chance of home invasion.
GLENN: There's no crime on my property. With the signs, with the cameras, with the dogs, with the two American flags and this one? No one's coming into my house. They will be like, he's crazy. I think my newspaper could be delivered to my door in Connecticut but never make it to the door. I think the guy will be afraid. He will just put it, like on the -- he will just put it like on the curb, nicely stacked on the curb, you know, maybe a little cup of coffee or something next to it. Just in case you like this, Mr. Beck, I thought I'd leave you a little coffee, too. I'm afraid; please don't kill me.
STU: Guy getting biscotti delivered to him on his curb.
GLENN: I can't imagine what people are going to say when they drive by a big flag that has a cannon on it that says "Come and take it"? They're going to freak out. It's going to be the happiest day of my -- I may just sit in the front room and watch the cars go by.
STU: You know, some people would say you are getting this flag, gigantic custom-made flag, you know, put together for you. People might say, hey, that's a really expensive flag but really, it's a really inexpensive security system.
GLENN: It's just tremendous. The flag, I mean, it's going to be a huge flag. They'll make it for $200. That's worth every -- are you kidding me? That's worth every penny.
STU: You can get rid of all your cameras. You don't even need a dog.
GLENN: Dog, I don't need to buy Purina One, I don't need to buy Purina One. $200, I got the best security system forever, for all time. Come and take it!
STU: You are not going to get many trick-or-treaters, I'll say that.
GLENN: Good! More candy for me! I'll take the cannon off and I'll have them sew a giant pumpkin on it. I'll fly that one for Halloween. Come and take my candy, kids! Out of my cold, dead hands. [Laughter]. You'll get that fun size, but you'll have to kill me first.
