    Glenn Beck was honored by his home town of Mount Vernon WA. It was the idea of the mayor but many did not agree.

    The city government spent $17,000 in overtime because of concern of the anti Beck demonstrators.

    There were more anti-Beck demonstrators than those attending the function to honor him.

    I think Glen Beck would agree it is not the governments job to protect him.

    If some nut case hates Glen Beck as much as Glen Beck hates the government and decides to beat the crap out of him, that is Glen Beck's problem.

    Come on Glen, if you are going to talk the talk you need to walk the walk. Glen should have made sure no government money was spent on his visit.

    They sold tickets to the function honoring him. Only about half of the tickets sold. They did not make enough money to cover the costs of the function.

    Don't invite Glen Beck over, it could be expensive.

    Glenn Beck has never stated that he hates Government or is "Anti-Government." Being Anti-Big Government is not the same as being Anti-Government. Furthermore,i don't believe Glenn Beck ever demanded or requested that security. So it looks like you just made up a big ole pile of steaming excrement and tried to pass it off as being fact. Hey nice try though. :)

    I have to agree with you on this LibocalypseNow. Sounds more like an opinion from a left wing nut. Glenn has never stated he is for anti-government. At least if Elmer wnated to be taken seriously, he could have posted a source to back up his drivel. Or, maybe Old Rocks could have backed him up with some sources other than :lol::lol::lol:
    This thread is really a nonstarter.

    I can't believe Glen is from Washington, no wonder he is all about doom and gloom, it is all the rain he grew up with.
    I have also heard they have a big gay scene in Mt Vernon. :lol:
    maybe he should have picked up some pot while he was there, he needs it.
