I am serious. This man couldn't tell if the dog that bit him was a Husky or a Wolf. And yet his popularity crosses all political and religious boundaries. How can this man be taken seriously when he has no idea what is reality and what is fiction? Although the radio station claims that they are non-partisan, it is obvious that Glenn Beck is using his leverage to dissuade the general public from caring about the environment. He is more right-wingnut than he claims and it shows in the adds he promotes as well as the discussions he engages in.

Case in point: Several weeks ago he was talking about the price of OIL and one caller brought up something about electric cars. They were talking about the movie "Who Killed The Electric Car", which was miss quoted and Glenn corrected. He then went on to falsely summarize this documentary, stating that the batteries could only hold enough electricity to go 45 miles. This is not completely accurate. GM first used inferior re-chargeable batteries, but figured out they weren't right and replaced them with nickel metal-hydride batteries which hold enough electricity to go over 100MI per charge.

The economists, Glenn Beck and associates are also claiming that there is over 70 years of oil in America. The scientists say that there is less than 5 years of oil in this country, and yet thousands of people are trusting the economists over the scientists. What is wrong with this picture?

Our efforts are so scattered because people like Glenn exist. We petition for the protection of every animal, plant, and natural habitat individually. This is great, except we are left open for a massive calculated assault and many of us haven't seen it coming. I propose that we pool our individual resources and create a petition which addresses our need for things, electricity, heat and the freedom to travel through clean energy, fuel and packaging, thus preserving life on this planet.

Please join our chat group to discuss the ways we can educate and inspire the general population of idiots to realize that the alternatives are already feasible and in practice today. Perhaps they will not be so quick to agree to further destruction of Earth once they realize how easy the alternatives really are.

I knew we needed a nanny when we moved to the suburbs. Daycare for two kids was suddenly exorbitant. A nanny not only made sense financially, but logistically. No drop-offs with special bags and pre-made bottles. No rushing out of meetings to make th...

We’re homeschoolers and we’re proud of it. We think it offers the best of both worlds to our kids, as they learn at their own rate, they get a lot of individual attention, and homeschooling (unschooling, in our case) allows them to learn ...

As a person and as a parent, I never thought of myself as one of a kind, but I also never thought that there were a whole lot of people out there like me. In my early 20s, for example, I took up knitting. I adore old movies and appreciate the style a...
