    Ol Glen is on Fox News calling anyone who wants to be self sufficient by the term (Bubbas) He's calling this gun buying and self sufficiency movement in the country "The Bubba Effect"....

    I sure am glad i live in Oklahoma and not where ever Glen Beck is...because there MUST BE something in the water out where he is!!!!!!!!!!

    WHY.... WHY...did Fox news bring this guy over from The Communist News Network (CNN)???? Can somebody answer me that? :mad:

    I heard that and kind of laughed... It didn't bother me because I know it's not always true. There ARE some 'bubbas' out there who are willing to do whatever/whenever and that's what I thought about when Beck said it in his online video.

    With that said, let it go over as a grain of salt. I believe more than your average 'bubba' is preparing for whatever could happen next...

    Beck is alright. I have heard him at other times and he has been decidedly pro-gun and pro-second amendment.

    Yes, this was a term that Glenn picked up from one of the experts he had on the TV program Friday. I want to say it was the Homeland Security guy, but I'm not sure.

    Glenn goes wacko a lot, but I think the radio show is really where he shines. He is better able to focus on principles, the founding fathers, etc. in the longer, less constrained radio format.

    He's not perfect (no one is), but he's definitely on our side. I for one am glad that he's now on Fox News... though I'd prefer him to be in the 7:00 time slot.

    me too....I don't get to see him at 5 and usually only catch the last 5 minutes of his show when I get home from work. I'm off on fridays so that's the only show I get to watch.

    I listen to Rush and Hannity on the radio from work...and by the time I get home I have to rush to this forum just to unwind... :D

    Bubba will survive.
    Glenn is a Mormon, stocking up is part of their tenant.
    No offense met to Mormons, that is something I admire about them. :)
    Glenn is a gun owner. Give him a few views Mike.
    I wish him and O'wazhisface would swap time slots.

    glocknut,
    I have to agree with previous posters here, and I am gonna go out on ledge here for Glenn. Ya know like in the old mobsters movies. I'm vouching for the guy. So if he turns out to be a schmuck you can leave a dead horse in my bed. I say he's ok and didn't mean any disrespect, that's just what one of his guests, who's said he's heard that's what they call us.

    Please don't leave a dead horse in my bed. My wife would never let me hear the end of it.
