I saw Glenn Beck cry the other day. It almost seemed real. While the guy with half a leg looked at him like he was nuts. I agree with the premise...a little over the top for me. Oh, and the restaurant...did they get a bail out?

Bob and Revolutionary,

Stop watching Fox and go see what is really going on in the world. Stop letting the likes of Hannity and Limbaugh scare you. True tax cuts for people who need them are on the way.

Hey dumb-a** "revolutionary", we took back our country when we elected Barack. I am a "common people" and my taxes like 95% of others are being decreased. Maybe your lucky enough to be one of the 5% who get your taxes increased but then, you can afford it.

Keep telling yourself your taxes are going down...maybe it might be true if you drink enough cool aid while wearing a tin foil hat. Turning this country socialist is taking the country back...to the great depression...tell your kids who will end up paying for all Osaviors spending...make sure you look them in the eyes when you do. I think I shall frequent this restaurant. It sounds like people enjoy the food and atmosphere.

American Born,

Wow you people are all brainwashed by the right. It is not handouts, it is everyone playing by the same rules. The last 8 years, the rich got all the tax breaks and handouts. The didn't have to follow any rules and the government turned their backs and let whatever happened.

We finally have a president who is looking to help people. Not hand out, not steal from the rich and give to the poor. This is for people who want to work and make something better of their lives then they have now. Unlike what Rush and Hannity say, this is not for people who can work and live on welfare.

Read the facts. Watch other news than Fox. Get your information from more than one source and make a truly informed decision. Don't allow Rush and Fox to spoon feed you and tell you how to think. I am not saying don't listen to them, I am saying listen to another point of veiw from time to time.

Please... pay attention and use what is left of your mind. How dare you say that someone who worked for their success should pay for you!! You communist/ socialist poor lame soul. Why... why... why... should i give up my hard earned wages to support you???? If you are getting your 95% of the tax cuts than live with that... stay out of my pocket and my wallet. I owe you nothing... neither does any other citizen of this country. Take your Gov't handout... spend it wisely. You elected what... a thief??? Do you actually think people will just bow down and give... delusional to say the least. Peace... i hope... but i am prepared when that doesn't happen.

You hit that nail right on the head Bob! Unfortunately there are still so many people left in this country with their "rose colored glasses" glued on their faces they will never admit how distructive Obama and the other democrats in Washington truly are to this country. Anyone that has had Business & Economics 101 in school knows you do not "SPEND" money to recover from a depression, that's what has gotten us into this mess. Obama and those democrats are only digging us deeper into this depression and most people don't even realize it. Perhaps Obama has that proverbial "money tree" in the back yard of the Whitehouse that he can just keep plucking billions and billions of dollars off of it to keep spending. Somehow I don't think so. Obama is in lala land, along with all those other democrats who keep spending the taxpayers money like it's growing on trees. I bet they get these ideas at all their "cocktail parties" every Wednesday night that they are now throwing at taxpayer expense. Must be nice that someone can still throw "cocktail parties" in this country, because the average American can barely feed themselves these days. Do you know that Obama has gone to more restaurants in the 2 months he's been in Washington, than President Bush did in the 8 years he was in office. Obama loves to spend the tax payers money, now doesn't he. It's not just dinner for him and his family, these are dinner parties for groups of people all at tax payers expense. Not including the weekly Wednesday night cocktail party that is now a weekly event at the Whitehouse, all at tax payer expense. Go get those 2nd and 3rd mortgages people, you will need them just to keep this guy furnished in his lavish lifestyle at the Whitehouse. This is ridiculous what he is doing during a recession, when people can barely put food on their own tables.

I do not watch Fox much and i never watch Rush... the dude is messed up. I watch all the news channels and the simple fact is the O saviour is a fraud. A demobomb led by the punks under him. I don't really blame BO... he is a puppet. His strings are being pulled by people who are far more dangerous than him. Please wake up!! I actually feel bad for the fools that listen to either political party now. The Gov't doesn't mean anything without "We the People"

Mr. Conrad,
Can you please try to keep the drunks you serve in you restaurant from peeing in the yards of your neighbors when you close. Maybe you need a port a potty in your parking lot.
