    so our tax dollars are paying for Rush Limbaugh to spew hate speech about anyone who's not a rightwing nutjob... towards our troops - many of whom are from Democratic, liberal families. Until recently, our troops didn't even have the choice to switch the channel... stuck far from home, stuck listening to what's available from home. And, now, even with a couple of liberal voices to choose from, they may still find themselves stuck listening to what their buddies or superiors may choose to listen to, which may be the likes of Limbaugh.

    What kind of message are we paying to spread? What kind of negative effect might this have on morale?... spreading messages of hatred very likely to make our soldiers with loved ones at home who are Democrats or liberals feel even more isolation when the radio messages incite hate-talk towards Democrats. It's not a simple matter of free speech since we're paying for it whether we like it or not. That's a problem for me.
