    I know it has you rattled, but due to your increased typo output, I just find your posting at this point humorous....

    Oddly, I had not problem when people decided to boycott disney for being "anti-family" and I have no problem with this. I think people should have the right to spend their money as they please.

    You can also speak out against those who would attempt to silence the opinions of others. That's the true test of a liberal philosophy, as opposed to that of a "progressive" philosophy.

    This line of talk is very disturbing to me.

    No one is trying to "silence" anyone.

    Boycotting cannot "silence" anyone.

    To actually silence someone you'd have to lock them up, or kill them.

    While I don't agree with all of these people trying to take Rush Limbaugh off the air, and no doubt you'll make it seem like I do somehow this whole thing about silencing opposition is silly and stupid, that's not what's happening at all.

    It's nothing but feel good rhetoric to make right wingers feel like they're engaged in a battle for their rights or something.

    No one is attempting to silence Rush Limbaugh. What people are doing is saying they will not support products that advertise his show. Even if his show is cancelled, he will still have the same right to speak as any other american.

    The ultimate difference in this is that with Disney, ordinary people boycotted, they as far as I know didn't organize, and conspire to contact Disney's suppliers, outlets, or stores that carried Disney products and pressure them to cancel and cease to do such did they?

    You must be joking right? So you back putting Limbaugh off the air through intimidation of sponsors?
