  •  Dixie Chicks got canned for saying... (6+ / 0-)

    They were ashamed that president Bush came from Texas.

    Now, it is perfectly acceptable to call President Obama any insult (whether it makes sense or not), threaten his life in jokes, make racists depictions, refer to him as the anti-christ, refuse to follow orders because you believe he is illigitimate, scream "You Lie" in congress at him, etc...

    I thought it was supporting terrorism to disagree with your president while we are at war?

      imagine if half those stations were reporting truth.

      imagine the uproar on the right stimulated from those radio stations if nixon was a democrat (and his treason re vietnam, finally getting some coverage now- with johnson recorded as calling it treason).

      compare what they would do with that considering what they did (thanks largely to RW radio) with benghazi...

        from AM radio.

        income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%

          when it comes to politics.

          most americans under 50 are pretty apathetic politically and don't pay much attention. they get news from MSM which leaves out the important stuff and goes establishment/1% on most everything else.

          major events that do get their attention often will come second hand or with the MSM's version. then the influence of more engaged co-workers, friends, and family kicks in.

          in most parts of the country, with many low pop states with 2 senators, those engaged people often have only one free source for politics while driving or working.

          the 1% uses the 20% to get 50%'s worth just because they have 1000 giant invisible soapboxes, and the country's political circus goes crazy over a few percentage points.

          it's been working great for the roves the last 25 years and it can slowly fade away in influence on its own or the left can stop ignoring it, do something about it, stop getting their asses kicked, and finally get some real reforms going.

            if we really dedicate ourselves to it.
