Larry the Cable Guy performed this year as well.



Glenn Beck spoke on guns, Zimmerman being tried by the media & others. And shared cases of self-defense followed by accounts of government regulation gone wild.


Then Glenn Beck got into his history / story telling mode, which I always love. He had behind him the painting of George Washington crossing the Delaware. He revealed that the original was painted in Germany a a rebuttal to Karl Marx. It was insightful as he pointed out in the boat is Washington, Madison, a Scott’s, a woman, a African-American, a Native American.

I never realized that it displayed the beauty of America’s diversity.


And here is what the place looked like…


And in 360 if you have the app.

Where’s Glenn’s Gun?

Talk-show host and TV celebrity Glenn Beck had an interesting experience flying. Glenn happens to be a citizen of the United States of America. By that, I mean he is a gun owner – not a subject.

Glenn had the pleasure of checking a firearm; in none other than NYC.  At first he was handed the form for law enforcement. Because as every good citizen of NYC knows, the only people who should have guns are the police!

When Glenn informed the attendant at the counter that he was not law enforcement the demeanor changed.  Ironically, while there was so much concern about a citizen having a firearm. There was not enough concern to ensure safe travel of his firearm.  While Glenn wound up on the West coast his firearm wound up in Canada of all places.

“Signs of Freedom”

Recently, two photos I took in Washington D.C. at the 9-12 Tea Party were published in a book.

Signs of Freedom: The American Tea Party Message published by Crowded Corner Press.  The photo book presents the events of the 9-12 Tea Party. For anyone who wasn’t there and wants to capture the feel – this is a great visual.

My photos appear on pages 14 & 15.

More photos from the 9-12 Tea Party can be found in this prior post.

DISCLAIMER: I do not make any profit on the sale of these books.  But I do profit from the spread of the message of Liberty.

9-12 in Washington D.C.

Today I was in Washington D.C. at the Capitol building. I, my family and a few hundred thousand other Americans were gathered to express our displeasure with the direction our nation has been headed.

Below is a gallery of photos I took.  Media may have describe the Tea Party protest as a couple of thousand gatherers. But as you can see in the photo below, that was just the number waiting in line at the port-a-pottys.

Tea Party Harrisburg, PA

I just really liked the irony in the mesage carved in stone versus the tendency of our government.  And I felt like the Tea Party was all about showing government the truth, and demanding truth from our government. There was a young lady passing by with a camera. I asked her if she wouldn’t mind taking a photo of me by the pillar with my Glenn Beck inspired pitchfork.

What’s Glenn Beck’s carry?

I’ve been curious for a while, but there wasn’t really any answer….until now!

On the February 24th, 2009 show Glenn Beck mentioned having received a Beretta for his birthday.  Nice…

I don’t know which Beretta he got, maybe he got a PX4 Storm Sub-Compact

Your citizenly duty…

February 13th, 2009

“As a citizen, everyone within the sound of my voice, you understand what the second amendment was really all about. The founder’s weren’t worried about sportsmen, they were worried about an oppressive government.  In the end, the only one that will truly defend your rights, (is really going be up to the individual citizens).  So you, before you lose your rights – you go buy a gun as a responsible citizen.  Know that you are responsible for everything that happens to that gun. Know if that gun ever kills somebody – you are responsible for it. Know everything about that gun. Take the courses. Do all the things that you’re supposed to do as a responsible gun owner. But I’m telling you there will come a time, if you don’t have one – you ain’t getting it. And I fear it’s coming soon.” – Glenn Beck


I love Glenn. I’ve been listening to him since his first talk show on WELI in New Haven in the late 90’s.  He’s one of the few people in the media that I believe “get’s it”.

We Surround Them…

The Nine Principles

1. America is good.

2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.

3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.

4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

Glenn is asking that if you generally agree with the above principles than to send a photo of yourself to wesurroundthem@foxnews.com.  More info at Glenn Beck’s site.
