    I'm curious to see what actual responses to this episode are. I know the typical response from the left is to just ignore Glenn and find something to make fun of about him. But then the left has routinely stated we need to cut the defense budget. So do you actually support him when he suggests this? or do you make fun of him?

    Well, I watched Beck tonight - because of Avatar's clip. He made some good points on defense. Had a couple of dudes from the Cato Institute on to discuss.

    I think I may have to look more at what he said.... I like to know stuff before I comment on it. If more people actually investigated an issue instead of bouncing up and down like kool aid drinkers without looking at the whole picture, we'd have a better class of discussion.

    Clearly the entire clip episode isnt posted, which is odd because i took the link from the entire episode... oh well.

    I believe that Beck has said he is for cutting spending across the board, which would include "defense" (we actually have the world's greatest national offense) spending.

    Every once in a while I'll find myself in agreement with Glenn Beck.

    Beck lost any attention I would pay him long ago.
    I conisder him insignificant and irrelevant.

    You do realize you said that out loud, right?
