——-This is taken directly from Glenn Beck’s site——-
The 9/12

The 9 Principles
1.     America Is Good.

———————————This is my commentary————————————————

I disagree, America is utterly neutral. It is a piece of land. Some people from and residing in America are evil, others are good. For example, the soldiers who killed more than a million civilians in Iraq are evil. The CEOs of bailout companies taking million dollar bonuses are evil. Christopher Dodd, who lied about the bailout bill, is evil. Gun nuts who go on Glenn Beck inspired police killing rampages are evil. Glenn Beck, is evil.

People who volunteer their time and money to help the poor are good. People who put pressure on politicians to stop the war, are good.
——————————————————————————————————–

2.     I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.

—————————————-This is my commentary——————————————-

This is absolute bullshit. God is imaginary. Somewhere between 10%-18% of Americans are smart enough to realize this. Glenn Beck is just trying to get people to rally around his batshit beliefs by throwing in a genocidal desert god. You know what happens when people put their gods first and shove their religion into the government? You get Iran.

3.     I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.

—————————————This is my commentary——————————————–

I take no issue with this. I think honesty is a good thing.

———————————————————————————————————

4.     The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

————————————This is my Commentary———————————————–

I disagree, if you’re a religious nutjob who wants to homeschool and brainwash your children, they should be taken away from you. If you abuse your children or try to turn them into retrogressive assholes, you don’t deserve to have children and the government should come and take them and toss you in jail.

———————————————————————————————————

5.     If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

——————————————This is my Commentary—————————————–

This is what makes neocons truly evil. They refuse to look at context. Neocons like to pretend that we live in a black and white world and that everything is cut and dry. They just want to apply the same moral rules blindly to everything. They declare something evil and then refuse to think about it any further. Let me ask you this, if lying to someone is wrong and getting someone killed when you could have stopped it is wrong, what do you do when a stormtrooper knocks on your door and asks you if you’re harboring any Jews?

If you want to apply neocon justice here, either you’ll be indicted as an accessory to murder, or you’ll be punished for purgery and lying to a law enforcement officer. Blindly applying rules doesn’t work, it has never worked and it never will work. This is common fucking sense.

Not even Glenn Beck agrees with this one. If you want proof, just ask him if he thinks that the Bush administration should face charges for warrentless wiretapping and war crimes.

6.     I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

—————————————This is My Commentary——————————————–

I agree, however, not in the way Becktard would like me to. I accept that there will always be and should always be a disparity in wealth between the top and the bottom earners in society. I think that this is a good thing. However, I think the disparity should be smaller. If you have more money than me, you can afford to pay more taxes than me to make sure that I don’t starve to death. If you are obscenely wealthy, you can pay really high taxes and help me get a college education. Doing so is your patriotic duty. Show more fucking loyalty to your county and less to multinational corporations which just funnel money around taxes for a profit.

———————————————————————————————————

7.     I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

——————————————My Commentary Begins Here————————————

If people would just do the right thing and help eachother out, the government wouldn’t have to force anyone to be charitable. Unfortunately, we are polluted with assholes who trample anyone they can for a profit then scream in agony whenever their tax rates start to approach those of their employees. This is why capitalism is broken, this is why we need government intervention.

———————————————————————————————————

8.     It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

—————————————-This is my Commentary——————————————-

This is the only one of the nine which I agree with entirely.

———————————————————————————————————

9.     The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

——————————————–This is my commentary—————————————

This is just fucking stupid. It’s a belief commonly held by neocon nutjobs who scream this whenever a democrat is in power and wants to fix the economy, but scream the opposite when a neocon is in power and wants to start a war with a nation that poses no threat to us. We do answer to the government, THAT’S WHY THEY EXIST, TO FUCKING GOVERN! We just get to pick who we answer to in this system, that’s called democracy. Glenn Beck is just being a little whiny asshole because his guy McCain lost the presidency.

————————————————————————————————

So that’s it. Out of 9 statements, only two weren’t complete horse-shit. There was only one ever remotely worth agreeing with. Glenn beck is a retard and his children should be retroactively aborted.
