I saw that crybaby...and I don't think his crying is fake. Instead I think it's the emotional display of an extremely unstable man. He can't control himself. I remember how angry he was during the health care debate and he sure as heck didn't cry then...he goes from one extreme of emotional display to another...a clear indication of emotional instability. I"d give anything to know how many pills he pops a day just to keep himself out of a straight jacket.

unquote***I agree, but with a slight twist!! I think this lunatic has the ability, when questioned, (like in an interview) to separate the question being asked, to a simple thought process, that will make him cry.
"Tears of joy," to be exact!! For example, if he is asked, if the proposed tax cuts, are going to give other Americans, the opportunity he had, when growing up and going to college.
He, at any given time, can alter his thought process to, let's say, the millions in "corporate kick backs," that he will gain, passing legislation that once again, will enable the rich to invest overseas, enabling the once was, $23.75/hour wage earner, here in the United States, to be a new regular customer at his friendly neighborhood food bank!!
It's simply the ability to disconnect yourself from the question being asked, to focusing on the results of, in this case, Mr. Boner's vote to make the rich richer, and what tremendous amount of cash, that this will generate in his personal portfolio!!
I've heard actors/actresses, do the same thing, in "crying scenes" in movies. And of course, with a generous supply of "oxies" from Rush Limbaugh, Mr. Boner is more than capable, of "crying a river," such as King Fischer has already stated.
There's a similarity with Glen beck. The only difference between Glen and Mr. Boner, is that Beck is a "dry drunk." He fortunately, has been "on the wagon," for a great many years now. (from what I have heard)
What's different with Beck, is he still has the same thought process, or a lack thereof, from the days when he was actually drinking. He has never evolved, or has never "mentally matured," from the time he "went on the wagon." Sure, being a "religious wingnut Mormon," doesn't help matters any. But one DOES, have to ask the question WHY, he became a moron. (oops!!...Mormon)
Being a recovering alcoholic, and attending AA for a couple years, after quitting in May of 1984, this type of behavior, was always discussed, and constantly "worked through," from members in my group. (including me) It's simply a "recovery process," of what alcohol and drugs can do, to one's mental stability, (or instability) and how AA can help people avoid this "mental trap."
Remember, alcohol/drug addiction is a mental/physical trap. And just like the Republican Party, it leads to a life of total irresponsibility/lies, and a total "disconnect," from society in general.
I can take me for example. It's been 26 years, since having my last drink. Without the generous support of AA members and loved ones, one could easily STAY, in a mental state of "intoxication," without actually drinking. This is how "damning," alcohol and drugs can be!! (and it doesn't go away, only arrested)
Really, does anyone talk like Glen Beck does, out on the streets today? (well, the majority anyway)
Now, if we can only get the 50 million followers of this asshole, to Al-Anon!!
...God, what a mess we have huh!!
p.s. And yes, the spiritual awakening (not religious awakening) from the 12 steps of AA, was a "life changer."
There truly IS, a "Spirtual Power" out there. And I'm living proof, that one exists!! (as well as millions of others, testifying to this as well) But if one can "disconnect" the "religious dogma," that is attached to the spiritual side of one's faith, then, and only then, are you free from the "ball and chain" effects, that this "religious poison" has injected into this society today!! And I imagine, this is true to some extent, in other " spiritual faiths" as well!!
Who knows, maybe someday, we can get these "religious Christian wingnuts," to put up (3) crosses at their local church, instead of just one!!
Christ, they can't even get the message of "true salvation" correct!!
...which is why we have "religious Christian wingnuts" today, I imagine!!
"a peace that passes all understanding," is what I experienced on the 12th step of my sobriety.
...which may be why I, and so many other people, (spiritual awakening or not, I imagine) have no tolerance for "organized religion," and the "ball and chain" effects, that it carries!!
...there's simply "no hope" in it. (as with the Republican Party, I'm afraid) Who advertise their "ball and chain," in the form of...
3) the "Patriot Act"
4) Lack of "fiscal responsibility"
5) Wars without end!!
6) Greed (in the form of God)
7) God (in the form of greed)
8 Growing "death panels"
9) "Corporate/Military" controll
10) "Haters of the Bretheren"
My goodness, it looks like the, "ten commandments of the Republican Party"
I'm glad this "thief," is free from it!!
Organized Religion!! (there's simply no place for it, in our society!!)
It's simply a "Ball and Chain!!" Nothing more!! Nothing less!!
...very evil indeed!!
Peace (someday I hope)
