The ink was not even dry at the polling places before Nancy Pelosi and her lameduck congress were out touting things to come. On its way, for our ‘salvation’ is yet another stimulus package. Last time I received something like $2400 dollars. Am I going to get more of the same? If I cry that it is not enough, will I be allowed more gruel?
It is pathetic that people are jubilant that we are mortgaging our future by putting into power a group whose sole purpose is to make America dependent on them. They hug us close and whisper motherly words into our ears, telling us that we will be alright because they are here to take care of us.
After this initial phase of the new social agenda will come the recommendation of re-instating the Fairness Doctrine. With such a renewal, broadcasting will be limited to paltry, uncontroversial issues. To do otherwise would invite every kook on the planet to make their ideas heard on a station. If a conservative view is given on a topic, so must every other view be given. It will thus rob journalists from truly having free speech. Program managers will ‘play it safe’. Don’t take my word for it, though. It is just a historical fact,a s described in the linked article.
Why do I personally fear this doctrine? Talk radio has kicked the a$$ of the liberal media, taking huge shares from their market. Talk radio would be stripped of its ability to stand against the liberal media. Nancy Pelosi supports the return of the doctrine for obvious reasons.
Next on their agenda will be to address the global healthcare question. When that comes, stand by. It is the first of many steps to the complete socializing of our government. Don’t get me wrong, as I have said before, I will never forgive ANY congressional leader who voted for the bailout. That in and of itself was a major, socialistic step. But as to where we are going… the revolution is at hand. Will you be a leader or a follower?
