    That's very kind. I felt I was being shoddy, so I very much appreciate it.

      You told a story, very well I might add, about what is going on in household after household across this country.  It's alarming, and must be told until the powers that be (maybe us, even) put a stop to these hateful toxic liars.  I can't believe there is a large percentage of our population that refuse to see these guys are making millions on finding different ways to keep the hate alive, and keep their listeners coming back for their fixes.

        Hurts so much to hear their absolute hatred of this President. And they post the latest garbage from Alex Jones, Rush, Hannaty, Fox News, etc on their Facebook pages.

        What is even more frustrating is that several of them have disabled children on SSI and Medicaid, yet they support the Ryan budget. I try to point out that the kids are going to be the first ones hurt by the Ryan cuts, but to no avail.

        What is needed is for the FCC to reinstate the Equal Time provision and Fairness doctrine rules.

          This stuff is undermining our democracy.  These people who listen to this garbage are going to have to be deprogrammed, and I don't even know if that would work if something like that could even be done.   Very sad that this hate is allowed, and what this hate breeds.

          Is intentional manipulation of people's minds whether to get them to buy toothpaste or a political screed needs to be outlawed, it's practitioners jailed and deprogramming centers established to help these people, the ones who can be, anyway.

          That's what needs doing.

          What is the difference if one steals your money- or your mind? Yet we tolerate the latter as if it didn't exist when we know that is exactly what's being done- and the Roger Ailes and Rush Limbaugh's and all of Puke honchodom KNOW that's what's being done.

          It needs to stop. Now.
