Obama and some of his media pals got together this weekend, and they were strategizing. Glenn Beck’s name popped up a lot. “If it weren’t for Beck and those rascally kids, nobody would know about the Tides Foundation!”… okay, I’m paraphrasing. They also said that they were going to study Beck’s fans, to see what makes them tick. Perhaps to intimidate them? I’m not sure, they didn’t go that far.
I’ve always seen myself as small potatoes in the Internet world. Heck, the main page of my blog only got three hits yesterday. However, some pages that I’ve written do rank pretty high in Google for certain keywords. I rank #3 for the keywords “Glenn Beck Book Recommendations” and #6 for “Glenn Beck Recommended books”. I don’t rank in the top 10 pages for the keywords “Glenn Beck fans” or “Glenn Beck”. I have one article on page 2 of Associated Content for the search “Glenn Beck”. I was very surprised to hear Glenn Beck in his keynote speech at the final American Revival when he mentioned a book that someone gave him and then said “someone’s going to say that Glenn Beck recommended this book.” I thought to myself, “is he on to me?” Anyway, if you’re a Glenn Beck intern and you come across my Glenn Beck Recommended books page and I endorse a product that Beck doesn’t, just leave a comment on one of my pages… I don’t want to be dishonest.
So when I heard Obama’s supporters say that they were going to watch the Glenn Beck fans, I jokingly thought to myself… “I’m going to blog about Obama’s henchmen maybe targeting me.”
Just for laughs, I decided to take a look at where the three hits that I received in the last day came from. I don’t look every day, but I occasionally look to see where my readers come from. Today, there was someone from Lebanon, and someone from Dubai, and someone from around Washington DC. Hmmm… that was interesting, considering what I was going to post about today, and what was said over the weekend. Now, I normally don’t have any interest about where my visitors live beyond the country or state, but this one was interesting… was this person actually from Washington DC? I had to find out.
They were. I decided to do some digging, and I discovered that this visitor is connected to a certain charitable organization. I won’t say anything more at this point, until I find out what causes this charitable organization is linked to. For all I know, perhaps multimillionaire philanthropists find me interesting. Doubt it though. Don’t get me wrong, I do know some wealthy people, but I don’t think that any of them are interested in this blog.
Time to do some praying. I’ve always thought of myself as a low-profile person that sits very low on the agenda of the powers that be, and I probably still am; however, if Obama’s friends decide to go against low impact Beck supporters like myself, I’m going to need strength. I do not want to give up my country (as envisioned by the founders) or my God. These are two things that are more important than my life. I told my husband several months ago that if I didn’t go in the Rapture, I would probably be taken out by friends of Satan. I’d rather go out in the Rapture.
