I'm not upset by his comments at all. I think that he is entitled to his opinion and he can say what he wants, when he wants. I disagree with him, but free speech is sacrosanct. Having said that, I don't want to pay for them to be able to say anything they want. Their "free speech" doesn't really seem "free" to me, considering that I'm paying for that crap. Could you imagine the outrage if tax dollars were used to subsidize a right leaning radio station?
No liberal radio station has been able to survive on its own because nobody wants to listen to that bullshit. However, they are free to say whatever they want (the operative word here being FREE!!).
The tea party was accused of triggering the AZ shooting, though nothing I've seen out of the tea party is even close to being as vile as the crap spewed by the union supporters up in Wisconsin, which included signs of Gov. Walker in the crosshairs of a gun's scope as well as "wanted: Dead or Alive" signs with the word "Alive" crossed out. Walker and senate republicans are getting death threats left and right, even though what they were asking for wasn't all that radical (private sector workers will still contribute twice as much for health insurance and retirement benefit).
I, for one, am sick and tired of being called a racist because I want to balance the budget and think its a bad thing that we're 14 trillion in debt. Did you know that in the month of Febuary alone we had over 230 billion dollars of deficit spending (and that's in a short month) while in the last full year of the Bush presidency our deficit was 161 billion dollars FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR!!
ALL HAIL OBAMA!!
