Good lord, between retired farmer being in shock that he got a form a letter from a senator and you being so offended that Glenn Beck called the president Hitler, it makes one wonder if you are really aware of what happens outside of your bubble. Let’s see, just a partial list of the “unsound people” who called Bush Hitler includes George Soros, Barbara Streisand, RJF Jr., Jesse Jackson, Julian Bond, Keith Ellison, Keith Olbermann. They called Bush Hitler for starting 2 wars, enacting the Patriot Act, and for torture, Gitmo, recess appointments and using executive orders. Obama comes into presidency keeps the Patriot Act and expands it, has a kill list, keeps Gitmo open, bypasses congress through regulations and executive orders, uses the recess appointments, goes after whistleblowers more than all the Presidents combined, is the least transparent, secretly goes after reporter’s phone records and the Huffington Post even ran a headline called “George W. Obama.” So in reality, Glenn Beck is just agreeing with all those “unsound” people who said Bush was Hitler because Obama is just an extension of Bush.<quoted text>
For a start Beck declared Obama as the new Hitler in disguise and all those that follow the same blind sheep that followed the Nazi party in WW2.

or "Al Gore's not going to be rounding up Jews and exterminating them. It is the same tactic, however. The goal is different. The goal is globalization...And you must silence all dissenting voices. That's what Hitler did. That's what Al Gore, the U.N., and everybody on the global warming bandwagon [are doing]." –"The Glenn Beck Program," May 1, 2007
There are 100's of other gems like this suggesting he is not of sound mind to be able to broadcast these messages to the masses.
As for an open mind to the science, logic and pure common sense should tell you. Given there are 100 bad things predicted and one good thing, which one would you feel you need to act on ?
Yet this is what deniers base their entire argument on, that one positive against a hundred negative as a reason not to act. So who is really being stupid here.
You always claim that people should have an open mind, but I guess it’s only limited to views you agree with. So good job smearing people you don’t like. It was brilliant posting that Katrina quote. What was really brilliant was not showing everything that was said in relation to the quote and really brilliant not telling everyone where Beck was and what he was doing at the time he said it. Good job.
And another brilliant move of attacking the messenger regarding Al Gore and globalization. Is Glenn Beck like your squirrel to detract from what is being said in the real world or do you just really live in your bubble? Regarding the passage of the climate bill in the house in 2009, Gore said this: But it is the awareness itself that will drive the change and one of the ways it will drive the change is through global governance and global agreements. Gore isn’t the only one that has talked of global government, but that’s the one you brought up.
Regarding the 100 bad things, like you said “predicted.” But it’s funny weird that everything that is predicted is end of the world stuff and nothing positive. The warming has come to a standstill, which was never “predicted” by the computer models. We are bombarded that extreme weather is increasing, but no one has shown any quantitative basis or scientific study to back it up. There has been no pattern of increased hurricanes, tornados, fires, droughts, etc. But every tragedy is celebrated as if global warming is the cause. Very strange.
