A letter.

Dear Glenn/Rush/Sean,

I would greatly appreciate it if you would, how do I say this politely, stop talking. I believe the words you are speaking now are the very kind of words you would have deemed "un-American" if said by your opponents in reference to the previous administration. Seriously.

Look, I get the fact that you disagree with the current administration. Which is cool I guess, because it's your right as an American. That's what makes our country great. You can disagree and spit vitriolic libel and fear-monger until you're blue in the face. And it's all protected by the 1st Amendment. But honestly guys, why would you want to do that? What motivation besides fiscal gain is there to do so?

I'm just getting really tired of hearing about it all. Because if the stuff you're saying is getting to my delicate eyes and ears, and I don't read your words or listen to your programs, it's getting a bit out of hand, don't you think?

If we ever become a fascist/socialist/whatever kind of -ist you decide is the weekly -ist nation, then I will redact these statements and laud you three as the voices of reason in a sea of chaos.

I'm thinking it's more likely that hell will freeze over first.

It's true, Hell WILL freeze over first.

Oh Amen. But here is why they do it: because stirring the pot with a little bit of truth and a lot of sexy sensationalism sells and makes a lot of money.

Can't we all just get along? Really.

In all fairness to these three men, they are just shouting the same stuff the past opposers of the Bush administration were shouting. Unfortunately, people in the media never gave poor President Bush a chance to show what a great president he was. I don't think anyone with true conservative values owes any amount of respect or compliance to this administration! Free speech is protected under the first amendment, and thank the heavens above they have the courage and sense to disagree with the ridiculous policies Obama is putting into place with the left wing nuts in congress. So way to go Rush, way to go Sean and way to go Glenn!

But as Thomas Jefferson would say: The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those
who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

To me it sounds like one our Founding Fathers would think Obama is putting our democracy at risk.

Lauren, I love ya, but unfortunately I whole- heartedly disagree with you on this point.

I just found out Glenn Beck is LDS.

I din't know this, but I don't watch his show, either. So, there's that.
