i disagree with this
I believe that Cindy Sheehan is a howling moonbat who is disgracing her son's heroism with her nit-wit behavior. But I would not censor her. Hell--- the more she talks, the more she sounds like a nit-wit, howling moonbat. Feed her all the rope she needs and she'll hang herself.
I don't agree with trying to silence ANYBODY in this country, no matter how much you disagree with what they have to say. Even howling moonbats have the right to howl, especially when they pay for their advertising time (or their BLOG) and they aren't using tax dollars to do it.
If you don't like the message, don't listen to it. Or listen to it and call BULLSHIT! That's YOUR choice. I hate Michael Moore's fat, lying ass and I think Ted Rall should be dragged off and shot as a mealey-mouthed traitor. I ain't real fond of Al Franken, Barbra Streisand or Dan Rather, either.
But they have the right to irritate ME just as much as I have the right to bitch about them. That's what "Freedom of Speech" means.
The First guarantees the right to SPEAK.
There is no right to BE HEARD.
This is not a freedom of speech issue. The Utah station chose not to run the ad because the people running the station didn't feel in was in their best business interest. That is all.
That other guy blathering on about free speech is full of shit. You can bet he'd be singing a different tune if the ad was anti-Sheehan.
You pay the bills, you make the rules. At least that is how it SHOULD work.
Well said Acidman. This is most certainly a free speech issue. The power of the press belongs to the guy who owns it, only applies to other media - not TV.
TV broadcasts on public airwaves, (worth billions), that they get for free at the expense of the taxpayer. In return they're supposed to make the airspace available to the public. Whether you think Cindy is a true patriot or a clueless cunt, suppressing political speech is a FA violation.
And even their market excuse doesn't hold up when the fucking mayor of Salt Lake City has just called for a massive anti-war demonstration when Bush shows up to tell the vets they're dying for 9/11, while Osama waits in Pakistan for us to bleed our treasury dry in Iraq before he hits NY again.
And btw misinformed, I'd bet my next worthless paycheck that if it was a pro-Bush ad, they would have aired it a heartbeat.
I have no quarrel with the woman other than the fact that she is disgracing her son.
The fact that her opponents are getting shouted down is what really bothers me
So if 'Cindy of Crawford' wants to advertise on your blog, you don't have the right to turn her down, just because Michael Moore accepts her Ad. Right
You're full of it this time, Rob.
If more stations had this good sense, maybe she would just go away.
Yogiwhatever . . . what is amusing about what you said is not that you continue to perpetuate the inane and non-existent right/left debate as does Rob, but that you think one side is getting it over on the other.
If you can't spell it, you can always cut and paste. They put two buttons on your mouse for a reason.
That's just the wise sage JB, who ALWAYS can write a comment longer than the post, but who seldom makes any sense when he does it.
I can only stand in awe of him and wonder why someone with that much bilge to pump doesn't have the balls to run his own blog.
I am certain that he would draw readers by the thousands. He's just SOOOO brilliant! .
I don't know about her opponents being shouted down yogimus. I don't see anybody trying to stop them from talking.
I think maybe there just aren't as many opponents as you think. Certainly not as many as your preachers are telling you there are.
What is this shit about the public owning the airwaves? Does 'the public' own anything?
All I know is if I owned a TV station, there is no way in hell I'd promote that crazy bitch. Every other advertiser would go crazy!
Oh, and jb, your argument is PURE bullshit.
When somebody hits me, I hit back. I expect that if somebody hits the country, the country hits back. Soldiers unfortunately are going to die during this process.
The alternative is not to hit back, and then civilians die instead.
Would that be more appealing to you?
I'm fine with Cindy. But I'm beginning to think that we should squash anyone who preaches suicidal jihadism.
just like bush
:-) Cute, Smif
rich bitch kid
his sorry ass
that little chickenshit
fucking stupid Bush is.
Bush ain't even smart enough
I have generously cut and pasted these phrases for you, jb. This will save you some time when you type in your next post.
I take it you don't like Bush. Good for you. You sound like a 10 year old boy who has just learned how to swear.
You have my e-mail address. Instead of your pure shit in front of somebody who is such a chickenshit he zaps my comments cause he ain't gonna answer cause he already admitted the war was unconstitutional, then you have the fucking courage to post me and let's go toe to toe on the real issues of this war and the chicken shit you call president.
I do not call that asshole president
Rob lied--my e-mail is correct--post me! Have a real discussion instead of this manuifactured bullshit on blogs--they are as bad as MSM's
Just post and let's go . . .
You always delete me when I ask you to answer me directly.
I could wipe your ass, Gut's ass, and all of his groupie as well with the same two-ply bit of history's toilet paper and come up with no shit at all.
Cause y'all don't know shit about history, so y'all don't know shit today.
Gums banging together pretending you is saying sumpin "impotent" . . . which you is . . . impotent.
Which is to say you ain't saying shit!
Rob--you gotta hire better commentators. These yokels think they work for FOX, and expect me to fall over dead because they know how to type.
And none as near as pretty as Coulter, although she is frigid. Who cares if she spits or swallows, she just bitches. Gloria with long hair.
"I don't agree with trying to silence ANYBODY in this country, no matter how much you disagree with what they have to say."
HA HA, yeah right! I'm sure glad you are at least a consistent hypocrit Acidbrain. You block my comments by erasing whatever I say now because you OWN this blog. What about the guy who OWN's the TV station in Utah that chooses not to run Cindy n' Crawford's ad's? Even though I believe she is right and deserves to be heard, it is YOU and fucked up individuals like YOU that are the biggest threat to the First Amendment in this country asshole Let's see if you delete this comment.
That would be "hypocrite", not "hypocrit".
PJ I almost never comment on commenters but isn`t it time we focus on the issues and forget about a spelling error or perhaps a typo? OR are you just a nit picking booger eating moron?
Acidman--I thought you deleting my comment was a funny, funny thing. I got your point. LOL Some people are just sooooooooo sensitive. Hey folks, get over it!!
Has nothing to do with freedom of speech. It's a private company, which can decide what it wants to air and what it doesn't. Same thing that keeps them from running ads for the latest porn DVD: Broadcast standards.
"Censor" is an oft-misused word. Unless some government agency were telling the station to yank the ad, it most certainly does not apply.
Were it my station, I'd tell the hippie cow to stuff her tape up her ass, as well.
Don't get me started on this woman. Just leave it at I am really fucking sick and tired of her ugly face.
Can I please slap pj, jp , or the other fuck it pretends to hide under? Murry
"Can I please slap pj, jp , or the other fuck it pretends to hide under? Murry"
JB and I are not the same commenter you idiot. I know you are most likely dyslexic, and have problems with the alphabet, but hopefully you can get it straight one day (in more ways than one). As far as slapping ME, you are more than welcome to TRY any gotdam time. You will get your hat handed to ya dumbfuck, so keep it up.
"PJ I almost never comment on commenters but isn`t it time we focus on the issues and forget about a spelling error or perhaps a typo? OR are you just a nit picking booger eating moron?"
I will never correct myself on MY spelling error, even if it is about THE ISSUE I am commenting on ever again. Does that make you feel better? Geeeez.... talk about getting off topic. Get a life and shut the fuck up shitface.
