Americans Don't Really Care...(Are You Serious Chuck?)

I just wanted to post for those of you who do not know of Glenn Beck(libertarian) or his program…he is on Fox news 5pm est. No BS just fed up with the whole system.

This should be on every TV channel during every commercial break everywhere.

Translation of Obama double speak.

OH Wait! Are seriously getting upset that a POLITICIAN told you what you wanted and needed to hear to achieve his or her ends?

You’re still at the stage of voting, listening to them, believing them etc etc etc…

Nothing else to say really.

The video has been removed. Just like all those anti-Bush, Bush-Chimp, Impeach Bush videos on YouTube. Oh, wait…

Heil Obama.

There are no earmarks in the stimulus, and already wingnuts are conflating earmarks in the budget with the stimulus. Keeping in mind 40% of the earmarks are from your party, and total earmarks are lower now than under your party.

Still that aside, Beck is a liar/hack/douche.
Do UAW workers really make $150 and hour? No about a third of that, but that’s exactly what Beck told me on the teevee.

Oh also, he lied to me about the health provisions in the stimulus, saying government will tell doctors what to do. Turns out that wasn’t true.

My party???
Anyways, I believe what he said was they do make $150 with the benefits included in that. I am not saying to agree or not with him. Just be informed and do your own research…no surprise here- the country is in the crapper!

The problem is folks believe what he says. He deliberately lies to steer the sheep that watch him.

And the average UAW worker makes $55 an hour including wages, overtime, benefits, vacation, and insurance.

he is pretty crappy. but thats how all these tv personalities are,they can say what ever they want becuase even if theyre wrong, they’ll never apologize for it.

second to last time i saw his show i think it was on cnn or w.e. he was saying how the media is shit becuase they fear monger and make scary predictions of the future. Then i saw his 2014 American civil collapse/revolution plug and how he thinks everything will go to shit and people will be fucked since they cant grow food in a city ect. what a douche.

he also plays to the, ive got food in my bunker the world is over libertarian stereotype which is incredibly annoying. and his near constant defeatist attitude.

Just ignore him. He doesn’t know his head from his ass. Most on this board have tired of taking him to school and pay little attention to him now.

I didn’t even know he considered himself a libertarian. The little I have listed to him while stuck in the car, I never would have guessed that.

The firms currently pay an average of $55 an hour in wages and benefits to hourly workers, while Japanese automakers pay about $46 an hour, according to an analysis by Barclays Capital.

You are comparing apples and oranges. The $150 figure is the total cost incured for employee related expenses per hour of labor. This would include any payroll taxes, retiree benefits, and insurance for the company.

He said: “The average UAW worker makes … $154 an hour.You know if you include the benefits and everything”

They don’t make/earn anywhere near that number, it was said to mislead listeners.

Your apology of course accepted in advance.

p.s. technically I compared an apple to an apple, but you compared an apple to an orange. Inform yourself first next time.

If he said that, he mispoke. Beck and Rush have both discussed this at length, and have been very clear about what is included in the $150. I haven’t heard either suggest that a UAW worker actually makes that much. Unless you can quote and source him saying exactly that, I’ll assume his comments were accurate and your listening/reading comprehension is the only thing to blame. That seems like a safer assumption.
