that must have been a hoot

I guess it's not as bad as when it's filled with Cowboys fans.

/Ready for football season.
 
2012-07-29 09:04:17 AM  
well, if it's beck, i'm guessing it was more like 6,500.
 
2012-07-29 09:04:19 AM  
I wonder if they could buy gold souvenirs from the event.
 
2012-07-29 09:11:57 AM  
I assume that was actually 1000 people over 65.

Combined IQ reached almost 100.

Polarizing? Barack showed up?

Still better than Romney managed in Detroit.

Since Cowboys Stadium has a capacity of 111,000, 65,000 isn't exactly filling it.

If you go by weight, the structure was certainly at capacity.

Do they have hoverround parking?

Nobody seems to be able to say what the purpose of this was...

I mean, beyond Beck wanting more gold bars to stash in his suburban fortress.

Mr. Beck is very good at selling nothing.

Most of them only came to see the Decemberists.

And he made over 80 million dollars last year doing it. The guys laughing all the way to the bank.

Excuse me. We're in a time of war. Speaking that way about our President demonstrates to our enemies that our resolve is failing. Respect the office even if you can't have the decency to respect the man who holds it.

Must be the line to blame Obama for Bush's mistakes. You'll be awhile.

FTFA: But while Beck's supporters paid to see his message about "Restoring Love," outside the stadium, there was not love for Beck or his message from the notorious Westboro Baptist Church, known to protest soldier's funerals.

Hm.... whose side to take....
 
2012-07-29 02:13:54 PM  
FTFA: Beck welcomed them all to the "Republic of Texas."

Panderer is pandering. We haven't been a Republic for 167 years.

Also, since the article never said, apparently, this was going on last night. I was at the Rangers game & thought I'd get a nice picture of the Death Star from the top of the Ballpark. I was surprised to see they were having an event, but I got a couple of decent pics, thinking it was a concert or something. Now I realize I've got the derp in my camera. Must cleanse.....
 
2012-07-29 02:16:31 PM  
Whats the difference between Beck and Jerry Jones?

One's a person who bilks thousands of people out of their money and provides an inferior and disappointing product.

The other is a conservative pundit.

Only after you submit them for a photoshop contest.

SilentStrider: One's a person who bilks thousands of people out of their money and provides an inferior and disappointing product.


You know what's funny about that is that the Eagles & Cowboys ended last season with the exact same record and both missed the playoffs. So "inferior & disappointing" right back at ya. Now quit trying to hijack a perfectly good Glen Beck-mocking thread.


RedPhoenix122: Only after you submit them for a photoshop contest.


Hm.... not sure how well that would work. Turned out to be kind of a crappy picture. No idea why it looks crooked, considering I set my camera on the wall. Hmph.

It's like one of those optical illusions where you have to figure out which square is darker.

Both sides are equally crazy, but it's hard to tell which is in the shadow.

Patricia Mosely arrived at Cowboys Stadium early. She drove from South Carolina with her entire family to see the event.

Imagine that this is your life.

you stole my comment. I'll kill you.

Oh, and yes. Same thing goes with Texas.
 
2012-07-29 02:55:13 PM  
Is this when 100,000 people came to see Glenn Beck on the Washington Mall, according to Fox News, and 10,000 people according to everyone else?
 
2012-07-29 02:56:35 PM  
65,000 people and the stands are pretty much empty? How damn big is that place?

So a group of failures gathered around to watch a failure speak at a place known for failure?

/I know...too easy. ;)

Also consider that over 6 million people live in the DFW metro area.

So, let me get this straight... People paid money to go see Glenn Beck? Isn't his brand of hatred available for free on TV?

So you think people should be murdered for their beliefs? Interesting.

JohnnyC: So, let me get this straight... People paid money to go see Glenn Beck? Isn't his brand of hatred available for free on TV?


To be honest, I was surprised that he was still around. I thought that after his fall from Fox News grace, that he just faded into obscurity.

JohnnyC: So, let me get this straight... People paid money to go see Glenn Beck? Isn't his brand of hatred available for free on TV?


Nope. After Fox News booted him, he started GBTV, an internet TV channel with some of the dumbest farking programming ever made. Check out highlights on YouTube.

I guess the best part of pretending to be a new troll is you can also pretend you always opposed the wars and spending and numerous other failings of the previous administration, the downside is that you're not fooling anyone, so you totally fail as a troll, since the purpose of a troll is trying to convince people you're actually sincere in the points you argue.

I mean, really, what's sadder than some dolt who keeps trolling even though everyone calls him out on it? Nobody's getting mad or flustered, they just laugh at you and roll their eyes. It'd be one thing if people actually did go into a rage and tear you apart, but they don't, It's like a baby gumming his dad's finger, except less cute and more pathetic.
