Glenn Beck is taking over my brain! Forever!

(it's worse than i thought! run for the hills!)

I still haven't seen a whole lot of media coverage of Glenn Beck's recent "discovery" on the Cash For Clunkers website. Well, other than on the Fox News website and various right-wing blogs.

If you haven't heard about the imminent threat of the government taking over your computer, forever, take a sec to read yesterday's post. I'll wait.


Ok. Now, I will admit that there seems to be some outrageous and easy-to-pick-on language in the Cash for Clunkers disclaimer. But hello. The disclaimer is on the dealer section of the website.

~ It does not affect consumers.

~ It does not threaten your home computer in any way.

~ It does not make sense to get all hysterical about it, unless your goal is to imply that President Obama is a power-hungry fascist who wants to control everything in your life. Forever.

Still ... disclaimers are there for a reason. Take this little disclaimer from Glenn Beck's own website, for example. Here is a link if you want to check it out.

"All postings to the Clear Channel Website automatically and immediately become the property of Clear Channel without any obligation of confidentiality. Clear Channel shall be entitled to use the material for any type of use ... you hereby expressly grant to Clear Channel a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable right to use, reproduce, adapt, modify, publish, edit, translate, perform, transmit, sell, sublicense or otherwise distribute and display the Posting for any reason ... in any form, medium or technology now known or later developed, and you waive all moral rights in all such postings."

Did you catch that? Glenn Beck can use, reproduce, adapt, modify, publish, edit, and do various other things with YOUR ideas, FOREVER!

If you send him a message saying, "You are a dodo head" he can change that to "You are the head of the world" and use a technology that will be later developed to implant that idea in everyone's brains!! Yikes!!

Not only that - you will waive all moral rights!! So if God strikes us all dead because we have made Glenn Beck the head of the world, it will be your fault!!! Forever!!!

Please excuse me now. I am going to install a firewall in my brain. Right after I destroy my hard drive and stock up on bottled water and firearms. Talk to you later.



  1. Classic!
    I love it... Glenn Beck is (explative) okay, I'll be easy... Glenn Beck is a nutcase, we all know that.
    There is a guy called Anti-Glenn Beck on Twitter who really does a great job contradicting nearly everything Beck says and does.
    The guy does his homework... check it out sometime as well as Fox News Boycott website... I think you would like it.
    And remember, Beck is just another "ditto head" in the likeness of Limbaugh, etc...
    whose time has passed them by... they just don't realize it yet because they don't live in the real world like the rest of us.
