Glenn Beck: A Shill For All Seasons! What Won't He Sell?
From Gold To Food! What Next?
First Glenn Beck was touting the advantages of gold investment. The lawsuit filed against Goldline and the insistence of his bosses at Fox News forced him to stop shilling for Goldline, so now the 'Beckster' has decided that every American needs survival food supplies. Not only is survival of utmost importance, high end survival is necessary. Lasagna and beef stroganoff should be the food of choice after a disaster. Earthquake, flood, nuclear attack, any one of these not only could happen at any time, but if you are not prepared for an emergency, they will all happen to you at the same time, according to Beck the Shill.
Disaster preparedness! Now Glenn is trying to sell you food. That must be as necessary and valuable as the over-priced gold that millions of fans invested in at his urging. Beck urges his viewers to go to www.foodinsurance.com and save themselves and their families with emergency food supplies. I urge you to check out the site. Amazing!
Starting at just $199.95, you can get a backpack just like Glenn's, that has a 2 week supply of gourmet freeze dried food that is guaranteed to last 25 years! Gourmet freeze dried food sounds wonderful! Just add water and the "food comes to life!" That backpack and the supplies in it will keep you alive in style! If you think you might need to feed more than one person, they have special deals available for your entire family.
The budget friendly prices are reasonable, according to the reformed alcoholic. A family of five could each eat 3 entrees per day for 90 days. That package will only set you back $3,349.00. It comes with 18 boxes of food and only weighs a little over 300 pounds. Hopefully, your disaster will not destroy the home in which you have this emergency food supply stored. And don't worry that you may have to carry that food around on your back after the disaster strikes or those gun-toting, second amendment loving militias that Beck supports won't shoot you and steal your investment.
Don't Worry! Buy Food Insurance!
Glenn Beck is reportedly so thrilled that he has purchased enough food for himself and his family in case the unforseen happens. He was reported to have said, "You never know. I could lose my job. At least now I will be able to feed my family." The man who makes over 30 million dollars a year is actually the common man. Thirty million a year and he won't be able to feed his kids? Did he spend that much on his worthless gold coins that he makes in his garage?He is worried that he may lose his job and be unable to feed his family, so he has stored a year's supply of food in his basement. I hope his basement doesn't flood or his water pipes back up with raw sewage in the event of his own Apocalypse! Nuclear holocaust, fire, anything of disastrous proportions and Glenn is prepared. More importantly, he will keep preaching impending doom so that you, too, will find it necessary to go to the food insurance web site he promotes. If that doesn't work, he will surely find some other scam for you to invest in, while promoting all of these through fear.
I am actually concerned about those freeze dried mushrooms in the stroganoff. Maybe Mr. Beck has had too many of those mushrooms. Or maybe 'Sobbing Man' has been eating too many gourmet meals cooked in wine. His latest advice and endorsement is beyond the pale. Beck's willingness to promote the products he does questions not only his sobriety, but makes many wonder just how extensive is the brain damage caused by years of cocaine and alcohol?
