Beck is one of the smartest men I have listened to or read...including reading on here. Passionate? Yes. Did he try and teach folks TRUE history every week when he was on Fox? Yes he did. Do I agree with everything he says? Nope. But how many of you agree with EVERYTHING one person says? I am sure I will get slammed, don't care. I see somebody getting just degraded by folks that...eh I won't get personal...said what I wanted to say.
