Fatty Five Challenge Week 4 Update

To get fully caught up on the Fatty Five Challenge, read here, and here.  The summary---five hideous men try to get less hideous by losing 8% of their body weight by July 1, with significant financial risk.

Week 4

Stu “I blame Glenn Beck” Burguiere

Week 4  +0.83%

Total  -3.50%

Two ways to look at this week: 1)  After an 11 day tour with plentiful food constantly available, I had only a minor speed bump with a 0.83% gain.  A typical road trip of this length would have the decimal point moving one place to the right in that number.  2) For the most part, I remained under control and still went in the wrong direction.  Even with the threat of a live broadcast on the last day of the tour, I still managed to miserably fail.  I guess I’ll have to go to that standard cure-all of the left:  I blame Glenn Beck.  His tour, his fault.

Kevin “Saved by Zero” Balfe

Week 4: +/- 0.00%

Total: -2.80%

Remember those AWESOME “Saved by Zero” TV ads for Toyata that ran every 1.4 seconds a few years ago in a failed attempt to make all Americans kill themselves?  Yes?  Good.  I have no actual point, I just thought that since I lost zero pounds last week I would put that stupid song in your head and force you to share in my misery.  If you really care why I didn’t lose any weight, it’s because I went to Boston for two Red Sox games and I made it a point to try one menu item per inning. Glenn, in case you’re reading this, that translates into 18 items.

Doug “Watch out Geoffrey Mutai” Curren

Week 4 -.46%

Total -1.37%

Marathon Monday.  Today will always have a special place in my heart.  As a resident of Boston, a graduate of Boston College, whose campus is located right next to the famous Heartbreak Hill and an employee of a company based in Hopkinton, MA, the start of the Marathon, its only obvious that I am an avid runner.  So when I got home from work today I reached into the back of my closet, knocked off the cobwebs from my running shoes and hit the pavement for my second run of 2011.

As I embarked on my 2.62 mile jog (this is like the Executive course for the actual 26.2 marathon) I began to wonder why a runner like me even needed to be part of this Fatty Five Challenge.  It soon became apparent to me listening to my running playlist and thinking about how I decided to add these to the queue.  Yes, these are actual songs I run to:

  • Mr. Brightside by the Killers – Is there really a bright side when you have as much weight to lose as I do?
  • You Shook Me All Night Long – ACDC – This must be a reference to my flabby gut.
  • Live and Let Die – GNR – Keep living like I do and I am bound to die soon.
  • Born to Run – The Boss – I scoured iTunes for “Born to Walk” or even better “Born to Sit on the Couch” but no dice, so I had to settle on this track.
  • Paranoid – Black Sabbath – Every time I walk by a slice of pepperoni pizza I hear it say “Eat me”.  If that’s not paranoia I don’t know what is.
  • Like a Stone – Audio Slave – If this were a swim rather than a jog, this is how I would swim.
  • Juicy – Notorious BIG – Who doesn’t think of a juicy steak while working out?
  • Sad But True – Metallica – This is what plays on my home stereo every time I step on the scale
  • Jesus Walks – Kanye West – If my man JC walks, why should I run?
  • Wicked – Ice Cube – As in “I am wicked fat”

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
