I love radio. I love radio more than T.V. Back in the good ol’ days before T.V. was invented, people sat around the radio listening to good, wholesome and clean entertainment. Here, you are able to listen to a large collection of old radio shows.

I say Joe is “Far out!” because he was able to pin down the socialist and brought attention to what some of us knew all along. Thanks Joe! Keep on keeping on, brother!

The Coming 1st Amendment Crackdown

In Things I Agree with in the Political Arena on October 30, 2008 at 1:54 pm

Conservative Hippie>>>[I agree with joseph Farah. The liberals hate “dissent.” They will want us all to line up like little clones all in the name of unity.]

Joseph Farah:

Who says you have to know something to serve in the U.S. Senate?and most of the Democrats in both houses want is simply to muzzle radio voices with whom they disagree. They don’t like the First Amendment guarantees of free speech and freedom of the press, and, despite its prohibitions against Congress making any law to infringe upon those unalienable rights, they’re going to do it any way next year. They can’t wait. They’re champing at the bit.

I can prove you don’t.

Exhibit A: Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M.

Bingaman told Albuquerque radio station KKOB he would like to bring back the Fairness Doctrine: “I would want this station and all stations to have to present a balanced perspective and different points of view, instead of always hammering away at one side of the political [spectrum].”

Now that’s dumb enough. It’s evil, too. What Bingaman and his totalitarian friends in Congress, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid

But Bingaman really exposed himself as a know-nothing with his next statement – patently and provably untrue.

He claimed that when the Fairness Doctrine was in place prior to 1987, there were “a lot of talk stations that seemed to do fine.”

“For many, many years we operated under a Fairness Doctrine in this country,” he said. “I think the country was well-served. I think the public discussion was at a higher level and more intelligent in those days than it has become since.”

This is a subject I know a little something about, having researched it for my book,

“Stop the Presses! The Inside Story of the New Media Revolution.” Here’s what I found. It’s stunning! decide? Or is the marketplace the best guide?can’t handle dissent. They know their detestable policies cannot win the day in the free and open marketplace of ideas. So what they do is what demagogues and would-be tyrants have always done – they use the coercive power of government to control debate.

In 1987, when President Ronald Reagan drove the wooden stake through the heart of unconstitutional monster known as the Fairness Doctrine, there were a total of 75 talk-radio shows in all of these United States. Bingaman claims there were many talk stations. He’s dreaming. There were no more than a handful of stations willing to risk airing controversial, stimulating and opinionated talk programs as we have come to know since.

Think about that! A total of 75 talk-radio programs across the entire breadth of the United States. Do you know how many there are today? More than 3,000. That’s a phenomenal 4,000 percent explosion. In fact, my friend Rush Limbaugh, who challenged Bingaman’s ill-informed nostalgia for the good old days of a muzzled media on his show last week, said there are more than 2,000 talk-radio stations offering, of course, countless points of view from the extreme left to the extreme right and everything in between.

What does that tell you?

Do you think we really had more fairness back then?

Or is real fairness and balance achieved with the explosion of voices we witnessed beginning in 1987?

Do you think we had a more lively political debate then or now?

And, most importantly, who should decide which views are aired on the public airwaves? Should government bureaucrats make those decisions? Should politicians

Know this: Idiots like Bingaman and Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama

Obama dummy found hanging
Effigy of Democrat called ‘disgusting,’ but Palin’s hailed as fun Halloween art

It’s not just Sarah Palin hanging around for Halloween.

Police are investigating the discovery of an effigy of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama dangling from a tree this morning at the University of Kentucky campus in Lexington.

“I am personally offended and deeply embarrassed by this disgusting episode,” said Lee Todd, president of the university in a campus-wide e-mail. “This is not reasonable political expression; it is just malicious. And it is unacceptable.”

Todd plans to apologize to the Obama family on behalf of the school, which immediately removed the life-sized dummy said to be outfitted with an Obama Halloween mask, a suit jacket and sweat pants.

“I feel outraged and hurt. I am outraged because we work very hard, every day, to build bridges across the divides,” said Todd. “Diversity and inclusion are among our most precious core values. Episodes like this serve only to erode our confidence in and respect for one another.”

He said those found responsible will be “subject to the full force of university, state, and federal rules and regulations.”

Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear called the incident “embarrassing” and “deeply offensive.”

“This was not political speech. It was simply hate,” he said, according to the Associated Press.

The effigy of Obama comes on the heels of a high-profile hanging depiction of Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin in West Hollywood, Calif.

While some local residents are outraged, others, including display creator Chad Michael Morrissette, are defending it, calling it Halloween-related fun.

“It should be seen as art, and it should be seen as, within the month of October, it is Halloween. It is time to be scary. It is time to be spooky,” he told the CBS-TV affiliate in Los Angeles.

Local authorities have said the Palin effigy is not a hate crime.

“I’m not defending this; I’m not criticizing it. It doesn’t rise to the level of hate crime,” Steve Whitmore, spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, told the Los Angeles Times. “Now, if there was a crime against bad taste … . ”

AOL News blogger Liza Porteus Viana notes if Obama were hanged in effigy on the West Coast, “The NAACP, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton likely would march on West Hollywood demanding it be taken down.”


Conservative Hippie>>>[Just one more reason I am not a liberal. The hypocrisy that runs amuck in their party is a disgrace to true justice. It’s ok to hang Sarah Palin, but not Barrack Obama? What’s wrong with this picture? Don’t hand me that stuff, “well he’s black.” Yeah, what’s your point? So it is ok to hang a white woman in fun but not a black man? It’s wrong to hang anyone so why not go after the guy who did it in fun? Hypocrites. Deceitful socialist hypocrites.]

This Popeye cartoon was considered scarey to those of us who did not grow up with Freddy Kruger, Jason and a hosts of todays’ evil entities. Every kid in the neighborhood would be glued to their TV set hoping to see this cartoon again and again.
