    Grasping at straws….

    Here's a Glenn Beck meltdown over Obamacare. Of course, Obama is a dictatorial sociopath and the numbers are fake to Beck. But this will keep AC going strong in his desire to have his fellow Americans denied reasonable health care that still profits all the largest insurance companies in America. What would ppl like Andrew do, and more importantly think, without snake oil salesmen like Glenn Beck, Peter Boyles, Bob Beauprez?

    As painful as the situation is, there should be a thread as an acknowledgement of the shooting at Ft. Hood.

      As ugly as this is, Peter Boyles used it this morning to prove we need more guns.

        @Denver Yankee

        ABsolutely, this is the Republican talking points – soldiers should be able to be armed on post.  Now, policy is that soldiers are not to be armed while on duty, unless they are military policeman.  The general in his press conference, yesterday, reiterated this policy.

        Levin was on the air yesterday during the breaking news.  He, of course, attacked the "progressive" invasion of the miliary and said it was engaged in social engineering, etc. etc. etc.  However, to his credit, a caller said that Obama was "pleased" with the shooting because he hated the military.

        Levin said no, that was not true and no one, including the military, was taking any kind of pleasure at this tragedy.

        Even I can't  listen to boyles for very long…..I believe that he may be on his way out…..could be wrong…..wouldn't be the first time….but he is boring….except when he has local people talking about a local issue….and I think Caplis and Steve Kelly might be better at that…..

        • Denver Yankee says:

          You evidently listen to Caplis, so you have a stronger stomach than I.  Boyles's greatest talent is his ability to sq

        • Denver Yankee says:


          squeeze 30 minutes of material into 4 hours.  So you only have to listen to the 1st 1/2 hour.


          • dwyer says:


            Caplis highlighted who would be on his show and I was spending time on the computer deleting thousands of emails and for that reason, I had the computer radio  on.  I thought that both Waddams and the Archbishop would be interesting.

            To tell you the truth, I only do catch the first few minutes of boyles….

      Here is a tweet from a Colorado Dem legislator yesterday:

      A high % of women are buying guns. May not be a bad idea to purchase one for self defense after this morning Approps meeting. (Joke) #coleg

    Talk Radio Alert:

    1) Dick Waddams on Caplis-KNUS710 at 9:30 talking about the "supposedly"

    conflict between the Republican heads and the grassroots.

    2) The Catholic Archbishop will be on Caplis at 10:00 to talk about Obamacare.



    • ElliotFladenElliotFladen says:

      The "GOP Grassroots" aren't all that grassroots anymore. 

    • dwyer says:

      Surprise, surprise

      Dick Waddams doesn't think Tancredo can win.

      The Bishop doesn't believe in birth control and evidently the devil is far more responsible for the evil in the church that men are…..perhaps I misunderstood.


      • Denver Yankee says:

        Within the space of two minutes, we heard from the Archbishop that this country was founded on religion and from a Gunsmoke ad that it was founded on guns.  Isn't anyone going to speak up for homophobia, or is that taken for granted on Caplis's show?

    RWNJ legislators says that Dems are coming for his toilets.  Seriously. 

    Last year they came for our guns, this year it's our toilets. Just another day in the Dem controlled #coleg…
