Glenn Beck And Craig T. Nelson Talk About Not Paying Taxes Ever Again, For Some Reason

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?
