Nobody Said They Were Smart!


We all know people who worship Glenn Beck probably aren’t the smartest around. When I read this story I just had to giggle…

From the WFTV-Ch 9:

Dozens of people who parked at the University of Central Florida for an event say they were set up after their cars were towed. They said event parking signs directed them to a lot, but more than 50 cars in that lot were towed. People said those signs and their cars were gone when they got back. A viewer contacted WFTV after his car was towed Saturday, along with 52 others. All of them were in line to recover their cars at an impound lot and all of them attended the Glenn Beck show at UCF. The people parked in a Kappa Sigma lot. Mike Vedder thinks they were set up. He doesn’t know if it was a dislike of the conservative commentator or money. “Maybe the have a deal with the tow truck company or maybe they got kickbacks under the table,” Vedder said. They all said an event parking sign clearly directed them into the lot. Students at the fraternity wouldn’t comment, but WFTV caught up with the owner of Orange County Towing and Recovery, Ronald Hulbert. “I have a lot at stake, a lot invested. I’m not going to lose it over a $125 tow, times 53, times 53, it was a good day,” Ronald Hulbert said. Hulbert admits he’s never towed that many cars in one day before; he said it took him at least eight hours to tow all the cars. Each driver had to pay cash, netting him more than $6,600. Dozens of people who parked at the University of Central Florida for an event say they were set up after their cars were towed.

I wonder if the tow company accepted GOLD as payment?

  1. It’s funny.. but, it’s also wrong.

    Besides there being a scam here that’s a pretty shitty thing to do to anyone..Stuff like this is what Foxnews feeds off of.. and Beck will be sure to make it a huge Liberal conspiracy…With Obama coming to Fl in the few days, I’m sure Beck will say it’s just another way Obama was trying to stop Beck’s minions freedoms or it’s another ‘loop’ into communism.. 😉 ..

  2. There actually was a homemade sign directing people into that parking area. We parked there but left during lunch as the others were being towed, and the sign was gone. I’m not defending the audience or the towing company, but this hardly makes the case that the people were stupid.
