An update and mini review on our Roku 2XD

| October 1, 2011

So far I have been satisfied with our relatively low cost purchase of a Roku 2XD as a way to stream Internet content to our plasma TV. The Roku is must quicker to navigate than our TivoHD and offers a simple interface and one HDMI wire set up. Amazon online movie rentals worked great and […]

Aww, shucks … another terrorist leader dead

| September 30, 2011

As someone who has never been comfortable with President Obama’s policies or what he says publicly (particularly his “apologies for America” overseas) or in regards to terrorism (does the Obama administration even use that word?) — I will  acknowledge that there  has been continued aggressive actions to the exterminate top Al-Qaeda leaders (and pretty successful […]

Dow closes down over 600 pts after S&P US credit downgrade

| August 8, 2011

Oh to have had the wisdom of a Glenn Beck … and have listened to his analysis of how foolish it was to have believed in an economic recovery? He continued to recommend investing in gold as a safe haven from the upcoming financial meltdown. Of course one would think that as someone who watched […]

Glenn Beck airs his final cable broadcast – starts GBTV.com

| July 1, 2011

The controversial Glenn Beck finished his two and a half years on a successful hour long TV program yesterday to the disappointment of many loyal viewers. Love him or hate him, he has made an impact in about every venue he gets involved in. Radio, cable TV books, Internet, live events and just teaching history […]

Thoughts on the 8/28 Restoring Honor Rally and Glenn Beck

| September 3, 2010

  I’ve been contemplating this week how to comment on last weekend’s gathering in Washington DC promoted by FoxNews commentator Glenn Beck, but I couldn’t figure out how to do it justice until reading a blog post by Lexington Green. I Think I See What Glenn Beck is Doing described the event, the purpose and […]

Humor: Glenn Beck’s ‘Whitehouse Only’ Red Phone rings

| July 23, 2010

For those who watch the Fox News Glenn Beck television program, you’ll recall one of Glenn’s props is a “Red Phone” which supposedly has a private number that has been given to the Whitehouse — so that they can correct any misinformation. In the year or so it has been installed it never been used […]

Thought provoking words

| July 22, 2010

  I liked this blackboard image from Glenn Beck, a controversial radio and television host who has spent the last year right-teaching American history to the millions that tune in or DVR his 5PM FoxNews program. Although I don’t watch all that many of his broadcasts, I have enjoyed his Founders Fridays broadcasts which focuses […]

Book: The Overton Window by Glenn Beck

| July 1, 2010

I ordered the Glenn Beck audiobook “The Overton Window” a week or so ago, and it finally came in earlier this week. Since I had a few hours of driving on Wednesday, it was a good day to start it. As expected, it is both thought provoking and a bit disturbing. Let’s hope I don’t […]

| June 16, 2010

*Video: oreillybeck 100614 I ordered a couple books for summer reading on Tuesday, although I might hold one back for vacation. First, the new “thriller” called The Overton Window by Glenn Beck was just released and it is sure to be a best seller. Thankfully this mass marketed hardcover is priced right at several online […]

Let’s lighten the mood

| November 6, 2009

With the tragic news coming from Fort Hood (yesterday) and Orlando (today), and the unemployment numbers shocking economist nationally — now at 10.2% — I was in the mood for a bit of comedy. Jon Stewart to the rescue with a parody on the popular FoxNews celebrity Glenn Beck who is recovering from appendicitis. Enjoy! […]

Is Glenn Beck the modern face of a founding father?

| September 22, 2009

No offense Glenn, but I’m more comfortable remembering our nations’ wigged fathers! (see Time magazine cover photo & articles) Americans with moderate to conservative political views have flocked to right leaning talk radio and FoxNews television this past year (cable news ratings), as the United States congress and President Obama seek to follow through on […]
