Glenn Beck had a nice little segment on his show about the whole Obama socialist thing. I found the clip on you tube and I wanted to share it. Pay attention to the author that is the guest interview on the show. I think it sounds like a great read. Video first:
One reason I bring this video up is that some schmuck on the site posted a comment that said the following:
Under Bush we all got "Stimulus checks" redistribution of wealth, we "nationalized banks", we "nationalized insurance companies", we "nationalized brokerage houses", and we gave trillions in welfare to Iraq...
And now you're worried about socialism? Welcome to last year.

Not bad actually.... except for the fact that you just made a point for the right not the left with that statement. Look how well that is all going-not so well. Therefore, case and point, the redistribution of wealth, not so grand.
Then this uneducated person said:
yes we all want PIE, but in this sh!@y economy right now it needs to be BALANCED out.(SHARE THE PIE)
To which I replied:
"If the economy is as bad as you put it, then doesn't it seem to reason that there is less pie to go around? So sharing it would basically leave the people that have earned pie with less pie than what they earned? Sounds like punishment for the employed citizens and justification for the raping of American wallets?
Plus who says it needs to be balanced out? Who? Isn't it a higher law to earn your own pie than to expect it from another?" Should we not be aiming a higher law, a higher standard?
I need to keep off posting stuff I know. It can be aggravating and addicting. But as for the video, kudos to Glenn Beck on this one. I think he got it spot on.
