Via the Cajun Boy comes this epic clip of Glenn Beck and Craig T. Nelson. Nelson has a big ol' sad, because no one takes responsibility anymore, so naturally, as a "fiscally responsible grandfather," he's not going to pay taxes or "fund things he refuses to fund." Because whatever happened to education, or firefighters? Not paying taxes will fix that, tout-de-suite. Obviously, this is what all fiscally responsible grandfathers should do, for the future.
Anyway, then he says -- I'd say apropos of nothing if "apropos of nothing" wasn't a good way to describe this entire conversation -- "What happened to society? I go into business, I don't make it, I go bankrupt. I've been on food stamps and welfare, did anybody help me out? No. No. They gave me hope, they gave me encouragement, and they gave me a vision."
Uhm...didn't "they" also "help you out" with WELFARE AND FOOD STAMPS? What? Do you not -- I...but...but -- are you unclear on the concept of -- am I? Are you? Is this supposed...what? Really? Huh?
Am I missing something here? Craig, are you trying to send us a secret message, that the poltergeists are back in your teevee, or something?
