Bloviating Zeppelin: Everything EXCEPT Free Speech

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Everything EXCEPT Free Speech

Appearing on John Ziegler's evening show on KFI 640 AM in LA, U.S. Senator James Inhofe says he overheard Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barbara Boxer saying they want a "legislative fix" for talk radio.

Inhofe is now backtracking, however, saying that conversation occurred about three years ago; Boxer and Clinton, through staff, say it never happened.

The Republicans seem to hate Talk Radio when it is not congruent with their conventional thoughts as per Trent Lott (talk radio is Running America) ; we should expect no less when it comes to the Democrats because, after all, "talk radio" carries a distinguished reputation for pulling numbers, selling the books (the ARB, as it's called in the trade), and rallying the GOP (and more importantly) and its Conservative base.

Anything effective CANNOT be tolerated.

And so-called "Talk Radio" CANNOT be tolerated, as cannot blogs, publications and the like.

Radio is the first on the chopping block by way of the "Fairness Doctrine." See my posts here and here on the issue.

Expect that it will be carried out -- shortly. Expect this to be the next Democrat "push."


This isn't anything we as Conservatives didn't already know inherently.

And here comes the Standard Blame attributed to the Right (and why Right-Leaning blogs, talk radio and journals need to be completely ERADICATED):

What changed? First came the conservative outcry labeling the mainstream media as carrying a liberal bias. The growth of talk radio and cable slugfests gave voice to that claim. The Iraq war fueled distrust of the press from both sides. Finally, it became easier for the blogging public to look up the donors.

Huh. Imagine that. Information being made AVAILABLE to the PUBLIC. Shocking! Unacceptable! Betrayal!

Blogs are the new standard for free speech and the elitists can't deal with that.

Shoprat: which is why blogs AND talk radio are so dangerous -- they are not FILTERED and CONTROLLED by the Left.

LMC: Hoo Yeah!!

And remember that by the reading of McCain-Feingold, blogs could be limited in areas of political speech becauset hey 'contribute' to candidates! Yes, free speech contributes to parties!

This is not a party-thing, but an Incumbistanian outlook upon we poor Electistanians just not needing to have any political speech at ALL that is not regulated by the Incumbistanians.

Just like in Saudi Arabia!

Yes, the Incumbistanians chose a very good Nation to model themselves after...

Talk radio and blogs allow the listener/participant to think for themselves, gather info, and come to their own conclusions. Libs cant have that

To appeal to non conservatives, the trick is to change the word doctrine to dogma. I emailed my reps, Cornyn, Hutchison and Johnson to that effect. To me, it is not enough for my reps to oppose this but they must win the war of words.
