Glenn Beckk wants to build a utopian city-theme park hybrid

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/01/14/glenn-beck-hopes-to-build-utopian-city-theme-park-hybrid/

DippyLand comes to mind. Let me guess who the Grand Poobah will be....

The city, to be called “Independence,” draws heavily from ideas espoused by Walt Disney and libertarian novelist Ayn Rand. The project is expected to cost more than $2 billion.

3. Ayn Rand? A utopian theme park where they will show how no one gives a shit about anyone else...

imagine the types of rides - where people get injured but no one comes to help....maybe "It's an AllAboutMe world Afterall (soundtrack by Ted Nugent)....

they should put it next to one of those crazy dinosaurs ate hot dogs with humans ultra scary religious theme parks...

4. The idea sounds good.

I hope that it goes forward and becomes mega-city. Then all the zany rightwing fools can live there and get the hell out of the rest of our lives.

9. If Beck builds a theme park city, it'll look like this, not long after opening.

The ruins of Jim and Tammy Bakker's "Heritage USA."

10. My favorite part

"He encouraged parents to send their children to the city to “deprogram” them before they attended college. Politicians could also visit the city to learn “the truth.” "

Ah, yes, "The Truth." It's SO much easier than actually learning things!

11. He'll be able to raise the money in less than a month.And everyone living there will have an arsenal

There many, many millionaires and billionaires with more money than they can spend in their life times. They of the privileged class will be more than happy to invest in such a place where they can continue to hand around their money to each other. i hope they succeed and that all the evil greedy sociopaths move their where they can enjoy each others company.

12. Yup. It's an enormous waste of resources, but they'll do it.

Just like they sunk all that money into Willard even though he was an obvious loser. It's not even about making a profit anymore. It's about pushing the message. It's about convincing the rest of us that they are inherently superior because they have more money. The right wing ideology at it's core is more about finding an excuse to feel good about being greedy than it is about the greed itself.
