------------------

Conservative commentator Glenn Beck recently announced on the 'The Glenn Beck Program' that he is going to create a new community, Independence, USA.

Independence will produce its own food, education and entertainment content in a community of homes, baseball fields and a theme park.

Beck said in a video announcement (below): "There's not going to be a Gap here. There's no Ann Taylor. You want an Ann Taylor, go someplace else."

There will also be a ranch to grow food, media center (where Beck will film his show and other entertainers will create content), a research and development laboratory and more.

Beck added that he is also planning on educating children: "Before you send your kids to college, you come to us. And you spend a week with us. We're gonna tell them exactly, we will show them the truth, we will tell them what they're going to try to do, and we will deprogram them every summer, if you care."

Beck said that Independence will cost about $2 billion, but he's going to build it "one piece at a time."

------------------

Guess what's coming to mind right now? I'll give you a hint...

RAPTURE!!!!!!!!!!

What will you evolve? Personally, I'm a fan of Sportboost.

When reading the OP, I kept mentally substituting Beck (the musician) for "Glenn Beck" and let's just say my mental image took a very different turn.

The hornet one, I forget what it's called. I just wanna throw bees at people.

Strange image, indeed.

On a side note, I love Odelay.

I don't think the other Beck would have an Ann Taylor in his Utopia either.

Good, as Utopia translates as 'no place', should be a perfect place for Mr. Beck and his band of lunatics.

He ought to break away and just found his own country.

I would support such an action, because I believe in the right to self-determination.

I would support such an action because it would be interesting to see the "love it or leave it" crowd of the early 2000s up and leaving it.

Dear Glenn Beck,

You got fired from FOX NEWS. Your sensationalist ranting couldn't pull in viewers on FOX NEWS. You were too crazy for people who watch FOX NEWS.

That is all.

Sincerely,
Me

I really support this, I think utopia is a world where people who love Glen Beck leave my society.

So Glenn Beck wants to start a cult basically?

"Start"?

Ayn Rand, only with a heavy dose of religion?

C.W. says:
Haha true. I should have more carefully constructed my words. So, Glenn Beck wants to build a permanent location for the cult he has already started?

I object to the name, simply because I am from an Independence, one in Missouri right outside of KC, and I don't remember it being anywhere near as dumb as a place ran by Glen Beck and his listeners/supporters would be.

I support this idea. Put all of these people in a city on the ocean's floor. Sounds like win-win to me. Over centuries they can evolve into fish people and then we can have a war between the two separate species of humans: land walkers vs sea dwellers.

"a research and development laboratory"

Why? Science is the enemy, right? I can't imagine a structure that would get less use in Beckville than a laboratory.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 3:57:47 AM PST
Heh.

You say city on the ocean floor.....I start to think of Rapture....
