Eh? You blame your gaffs on interacting with liberals instead of your own stupidity, so I just wondered if you do the same when you interact with apes. You didn't deny it, by the way...so what are we supposed to think?Quote:
The defense rest. No substance, no fact, no nothing. Just the typical attack on the person, which is what one does when they have the inability to think, reason, or deal with facts.
I'm still trying to figure why people like SC, who don't like Limbaugh so much, still listen to him...
As a matter of fact.. after presidential speeches to the Nation, such as the State of the Union, the opposing party does have the right to respond, even thought the Fairtmness Docrtine was ablosihed by the Reagan Adminsitration. The Democrats had a chance at rebuttal and used it, the Republicans will also get their chance.
BTW... The only Rush I listen to is the band. :cool:
Why does the government have to tell a private business (radio station) what a citizen (on-air personality) what they can and can't talk about? In a free market enterprise, the public should be able to take care of this by listening or not listening.
The airwaves are regulated by the government. Licensure of radio and TV stations is based on a stations's ability to serve the public's interest, convienence and necessity.
To be honest, George... radio and television isn't about political ideology... it's about ratings points, which equal revenue.
That is exactly where I was going with this. Seems to me, if there was a market for liberal talk radio, somebody would have launched it by now.Quote:

You know what's funny? Broadcasting comglomerates own both liberal and conservative based radio and television stations and are making money off of both sides... isn't America great? :D
Sure there is... one has to recognize it first.Quote:
Now George,There is no room in these forums for common sense.
I defend my comments by the same reasoning of free speech. I don't have to listen to the guy to comment on his comments, especially when posted in an open forum. Satire or not it was a BS comment and one that probably never have been made if McCain were president under the exact same circumstances. Since when does anyone have to listen and understand someone in order to be "qualified" to comment? That's never stopped you from commenting in the past.
And since you want to be a jerk...
If you look up and down the forums here, I do not post in about 98% of them. Why? Because either I am uninterested or unqualified to join in the discussion. If I post, it is on a subject that I am knowledgable in. Please show us all how smart you are and find one thread where I am posting about something I am unqualified to comment on. Not a thread where my opinion differs from yours, but a thread where I admit that I have no knowledge of the subject before I post. Ya know, like you did?
Personally, I don't want some bureaucrat, sitting in an office determining what is fair and what is not. The political leaning of the bureaucrat will dictate what is fair and what is not. Of course, if you had a liberal station, they could put their views and stuff on during prime time, the view of the other side would show up on early morning TV, like around 2 or 3 AM
Right now Conservative talk radio has a good thing going; and as such, they don't want it to change to put them at a disadvantage which could effect the ratings of stations that carry their programing.
