    Should Glenn Beck be arrested for murder?

    He says be afraid that the government H1N1 vaccine. "Would you allow the govement vaccinate your children?"
    When these unvaccinated children start to get sick and die, who is to blame?
    To yell Fire in a theater is not Free Speech.

    Hasn't the government provided vaccinations for the flu before? I don't follow anyone's reasoning for saying something like that. However, parents are much too protective of their children to not have them safeguarded against such a threat. The only ones who should be held accountable for inaction and its possible negative results are the parents.

    A good point, but it's up to the parents to learn the facts and decide what's best for their kids. If the facts they choose to listen to are from Glenn Beck, then they ought to be put in jail.

    Why do people forget that even Beck refers to himself as an entertainer, not a newsman? And everything that comes out of his mouth should be viewed from that perspective.

    I no longer trust our government OR the big pharmaceutical companies that make $billions off of the scare du jour.

    Maybe the vaccine is safe.  Maybe not.  I don't know.  Are you going to take the word of a government that lies to you about almost everything?  Are you going to take the word of pharmaceutical companies whose main interest is the $bottom line, not really your health?

    Consider that many medical professionals on the "front lines" (actual doctors and nurses) are not getting the shots, or are getting them only under duress (threatened to be fired) if working for hospitals.

    BTW, when is the idiot public going to learn what "free speech" means?  Free speech has nothing to do with shouting "Fire" in a theatre.  The theatre owner has a perfect right to throw your ass out into the street if you cause a disruption of any kind in his business.  That could include yelling "Fire", bringing in a squalling rug-rat, yacking on a cell-phone, whatever.

    To yell 'fire' in a theater is absolutely free speech, but that is not what Glenn is doing at all and you've missed his point completely. The point is CHOICE! Why do you people not understand that? Is it because you can't make choices for yourself so you want the government to do it for you? What if the government is wrong? What if they FORCE you to vaccinate your child and your child dies from H1N1, or various side effects, anyway? What then? Who should be arrested for 'murder' then? You? No, because you didn't make the choice, you let the government make the choice for you. So, are you going to arrest the government for murder? No, you'll probably still find some way to blame Glenn Beck and not learn a thing.

    another case of not looking at facts, just jumping on the Leftists political band wagon.   Beck might be an entertainer, but that does not invalidate his views.   Point Canada has just announced that the Vaccines is dangerous, and has killed several people.   

    there have been reports of serious Disorders and death caused by the vaccine in the US. but its rarely reported.    its overlooked that the developer has been given immunity from lawsuits if any one dies, and granted millions of dollars in Tax money.   other countrys around the world have stated there are serious problems with the rushed vaccine.

    so why is it so horrible that people are being warned to avoid it or at the least to look into the reports before deciding.  Me personally I will refuse to get it.   no matter what law they pass. 

    and the real issue to me is why push this.   more people die from the normal flu every year.    oh yes it might mutate and become as deadly as the spanish flu.  in which case the vaccine will be worthless becuase it was designed for H1N1 not the mutated version.    so why push this.   oh yes.  votes thru fear.  the old vote for us becuase we are trying to save you.  many nations are now saying that the swine flu is not the danger it was made out to be.   

    you be the judge.  do your own research.. but if you put people in jail for saying dont do something its dangerous.   you can start jailing every person who pushed for bicycle  helmets, seat belts,  warned against pollution, warned the public of secret radiation testing on the public, or  warned of toxic waste dumps.

    at the time they were all called panic mongers.  only time and research showed their warnings were accurate.    and that doesnt mean the governments reaction to each case was spot on either.

    Dear Gayl J

    It is apparent that some of the comments made by some hubbers tell me that they  have not watched Glen Beck on Fox Cable.
    They get a slanted view by watching CBS,ABC,NBC and CNN.
    The major news  medias do not report news items that give the Obama administration a negative rating.
    President Obama recently interviewed on major networks complained about the reporting on Fox Cable News, wonder why ?
    Glen Beck has a private phone line to the white house, a red phone.The phone is there for the white house to call him direct when and if he reports non true facts about the president or what is occurring in congress and Washington.
    Sorry to say the phone has not rang yet.
    It is just a matter of time for people that voted for the president to wake up and speak out against his programs.

    If you listen to Glenn Beck, and believe him, you will make many poor decisions.

    If you aren't willing to vaccinate your children, then I think that is your right; however, your children should not be allowed in public schools without vaccinations.  If you wish to home school or you can find a private school that accepts unvaccinated children, then don't vaccinate your kids if that is how you feel.  You have that right, but you do not have the right to impose your choices on the rest of us.

    Well, Glenn Beck is great at what he does. He grabs information from the media and puts his own spin on it. Some of his predictions and beliefs may be true. However, his tactics are causing many Americans to panic. Glenn Beck has the freedom to say whatever is on his mind. However, Americans are free to think for themselves. We should not take Glenn Beck literally. If we do, we may find ourselves unable to trust anyone.

    If you're basing your judgment on what to do with your children on what any television/radio host is saying, maybe you shouldn't be allowed to have children. One should research it then make an educated decision.

    Beck would probably tell you the same thing.
