Glenn Beck says he's leaving television because, like Paul Revere, he needs to get down off his horse and get involved in fighting the Revolution. I guess it was just a coincidence that FOX decided to fire him right at the same time he made this decision.
My real reason for posting is to celebrate Beck's show being canceled by way of the Jon Stewart parody video. I'm learning to celebrate life's little joys as they happen.

I don't see it as a need for so called "alarmists" to get off their high horse, more than I see a need for the clueless pacifists to have a fire lit under them, so they wake up and actually get fired up about their futures!!
It's probably better that the libs don't listen to/watch Beck....the issues that Beck addresses are better suited for grown-ups!! LOL :o)

Personally, I don't find solace in someone else's life issues. It seems a little shallow to me. There are plenty of people I find to be 'alarmists', but my way of dealing with them is to just ignore them. I don't think they brainwash their audience, I think they appeal to people that believe similar things as them.
