Some Questions - Where are the Answers?

Glen Beck has asked some questions:

I think most, if not all deserve answers. What do you think?

All this week we are asking questions; I may not have the answers, but power left unchecked can turn very ugly, very rapidly.

So it's vital that we all question with boldness, hold to the truth and speak without fear.

- Why do we need a civilian force?

- Who is posing a threat to us?

- Who will this "force" be made up of?

- Who is the real enemy?

- Does the president know of a coming event? If not, who builds an army against an unrecognized enemy?

- Why won't the media get off their butts and look into these radicals in the White House? And into this civilian army?

- Why does the FCC have a diversity "czar"?

- Who is Mark Lloyd and how does he plan to "balance" the airwaves?

- Will he bring back the Fairness Doctrine or worse?

- Cass Sunstein once said he wants to balance the Internet; is that next?

- Will broadcasters who leave the airwaves be allowed to go to satellite or Internet without government regulation?

- Is there any place (that has a mass audience) where the government wont regulate free speech?

- Why does it seem every member of the Obama advisory team hates capitalism, unless those companies (like G.E.) are in bed with the administration?

If Lloyd has his way, stations who don't comply to the governments definition of the "public interest" will have to pay a massive fine — that helps support public broadcasting:

- What will be the definition of "public interest"?

- Who defines "public interest"?

- Why should it be balanced? Because it's public airwaves? (Well, there are public roads that go by my house and I don't count how many Republicans and Democrats are driving on them)

Who is "surrounding" the President in the White House?

- Do any of the President's advisers have criminal records?

- Are the President's advisers working to better the country or their own ideals?

- Who are the anti-capitalists in Washington?

- What roles do they have in crafting bills?

- What was "STORM"?

What happened to the founders, where are they now?

- What qualifications must one have to be a Presidential adviser?

- What is the difference between a community organizer and a community activist?

- Do the czars have power?

- Should a communist have the ear of the President of the United States?

- What role did the Apollo Alliance play in crafting bills?

- Does the President know the co-founder of the Weather Underground is a board member of the Apollo Alliance?

- How many people in the administration are connected to the movement for a democratic society?

- What role does George Soros play... CONSTITUTIONALLY?

- Our unfunded liability for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid is close to $100 trillion. Is there any way to pay for these programs without bankrupting America?

- We are in so much debt, why spend more borrowed money on cap-and-trade and healthcare programs before we stop the flow of red-ink?

- The stimulus package funneled billions of dollars to ACORN. How does giving billions of dollars to ACORN stimulate the economy?

- If it was so important for congress to pass the stimulus bill before they even had time to read it why has only a fraction of the stimulus money been spent 6 months later?

- Bush said he had to abandon free market principles in order to save them, how exactly does that work?

- Why won’t members of Congress read the bills before they vote on them?

- Why are citizens mocked and laughed at when they ask their congressman to read the bills before they vote on them?

- Was the cash-for-clunkers program meant to save the earth or the economy?

Did it accomplish either?

- How did Van Jones, a self-proclaimed communist become a special advisor to the president?

- Did President Obama know of Van Jones’ radical political beliefs when he named him special advisor?

- The Apollo Alliance claimed credit for writing the stimulus bill—why was this group allowed to write any portion of this bill?

- If politicians aren’t writing the bills and aren’t reading the bills, do they have any idea what these 1000 page plus bills actually impose on the American people?

- If the ‘public option’ health care plan is so good why won’t politicians agree to have that as their plan?

- If town hall meetings are intended for the politicians to learn what’s on our mind—why do they spend so much time talking instead of listening?

- Politicians are refusing to attend town hall meetings complaining, without evidence, that they are scripted. Does that mean we shouldn’t come out and vote for you since every campaign stop, baby kiss and speech you give is scripted?

- Why would you want to overwhelm the system?

- Is using the economic crises to rush legislation through congress what Rahm Emanuel meant when he talked about "not letting a crises go to waste"?

- What are the czars paid? What is the budget for their staffs/offices?

Let us all question with boldness. This is a government of "We the People" it is time that they answer to the people.

If you get a chance to attend a town hall soon, ask some of these questions and report on the answers that you get. I am interested in hearing the answers.

Glen Beck should be thanked and encouraged to continue his pointed questioning of our government and it's direction. The use of our money,it's radical socialism/statism, it's undermining of our founding principals, etc. are all fair and proper game.

My problem with Beck and the rest of the conservative talkies is where were they when the UK banned Michael Savage for bogus trumped up reasons. Do they think that there is no political connection between the US government and the UK on this? Do they think it can't happen here? Do they think by ignoring the threat it will go away?

The dark shadow of socialism, political correction, and statism, is enveloping this nation. I just find it unnerving the very people that one would think would stand and unite behind Savage chose to remain silent. Odd

I don't think that Savage should have been banned by the UK, but in some ways he did that to himself.

I am no fan of his obviously; I think his comments on Autism were way out of bounds and went beyond the boundries of taste and that turned a lot of people off. Because of that people kept thier distance.

Les Carpenter III said...

I unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how one looks at it) did not hear his remarks on Autism. I do not know a lot about the subject but my nephew has a form of autism so I have some sensitivity to it.

I however fail to understand how that would affect one's position with respect to supporting free speech, no matter the personal likes or dislikes of a particular person. Particularly because all us who disagree with the direction and scope of our government, and the new Czarist administartion, all conservative talk show hosts as well as conservative bloggers may at some future point be shut down by the government in the US.

And the shadow of socialism/statism grows with each passing day under the Czarist Regime of Obama and his minions.

Just a conservative girl said...

He does have every right to say what he wants to say. Just as we both do. I guess for me the issue is that he can be so out there at moments that it turns people off.

My personal opinion of Savage is that he gives conservatives a bad name.

I don't think he should be taken off the air. If he has an audience that is willing to listen to him and a station makes money and is willing to give him the air time; then go for it. I happen to use my freedoms not to listen to him.

Take Ann Coulter for example. I agree with 90% of what she says, I just wish that at times she would word it better. When she made her comments about the 9/11 widows enjoying the death of their spouses; it was a turn-off to many people. Again, I sort of agree with the point she was trying to make, she just should have said it differently.

I happened to go to a lecture that she was giving and it was an audience of republican/conservative women. It was an awesome speech. But she doesn't always speak that way when she is at more liberal universities or on TV.

I did hear about Savage on the radio. I can't remember if it was Hannity or Levin. Those are the only two shows that I listen to. (Which is rare, I am not a big talk radio fan)

And your correct, his right to free speech should be protected. I just think that when people go too far with their statements sometimes there is going to be a backlash.

Les Carpenter III said...

That said I happen to agree that Savage goes beyond edgy at times and in fact occasionally insults his own audience. That is his "showmanship" I guess and his right to do so.

I listen to Savage for the insight I gain when he is right. When he is not I tune him out. I guess I am a selective listener.

I to find Ann Coulter right on issue far more often than not, as I do Beck although at time he is way to sarcastic.

Keep up your great work. I check in often

Consgirl - Could you aid me over at my site and debate a guy that thinks Obama's Czars are just fine? It's on my Czar post from Sunday......

Just a conservative girl said...

I would love to do that. Anyone who thinks these czars are ok needs some help.

BEAUTIFUL post! Found you in LCR's blogroll. We're having a discussion right now @ my blog about whether BHO is a communist. Would love to hear what you guys think.

Excellent, excellent blog.

Hi, Just a Conservative Girl! Thanks for following Swiftspeech!. and stopping by. I am dedicated to Free Speech—and I don't care whether one is a conservative or a progressive. One cannot live in a bubble: civil dissent breeds understanding.

I may need to "borrow" this wonderful quote: "It's vital that we all question with boldness, hold to the truth and speak without fear."

I hope you stop by again so we can exchange perspectives.

There is so much that is overwhelming. I think the FCC diversity czar is an attempt to force minority ownership of radio stations. A back door way to get rid of conservative talk radio.

Just a conservative girl said...

It seems to the overwhelming nature of all this is part of a plan. We can't possibly keep track of all this stuff. If they keep throwing everything at the wall, some of it is going to stick.
It is a full time job to keep up with this administration.
Some good news today, for the first time independants are now more against Obama than for him. At least some people are starting to wake up.
