    Bringing up a law supporting the Fairness Doctrine is part of freedom of speech. Congress doesn't have to pass it. But it certainly can't ban the act.
    Under the constitution, they most certaintly CAN'T pass it!

    Oh, that's right, jsut give it to the su[preme court.

    But under the same constitution they can't ban it from being brought up either.

    It's not called an ECONOMIC CRISIS because 10 people went broke.

    SO you got nothing other than your feelings. NOTED>

    Banning people from bringing up a law is undemocratic.
    No constitutional basis for your nonsense. NOTED>

    Ummm...so I guess there was no point to the question.


    How so? Did you even read the 1st before posting this nonsense?



    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.



    Please explain how this applies.

    Re: Senator to Force Vote on Bill Banning Fairness Doctrine

    Why don't we just have a Constitutional amendment banning any discussion of the Fairness Doctrine....really put a stake in its black heart. Would that make you feel more comfotable?

    So you do not believe the right to petition exists?


    Right to petition in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The first[6] significant exercise and defense of the right to petition within the U.S. was to advocate the end of slavery by petitioning Congress in the mid 1830s, including 130,000 such requests in 1837 and 1838.[7] In 1836, the House of Representatives adopted a gag rule that would table all such anti-slavery petitions.[7] John Quincy Adams and other Representatives eventually achieved the repeal of this rule in 1844 on the basis that it was contrary to the right to petition the government.[7]
    A law banning bringing up the Fairness Doctrine would be counter to the right of the people to petition.

    After pushing Congress for weeks to hurry up and pass the massive $787 billion stimulus bill, President Obama promptly took off for a three-day holiday getaway.

    Obama arrived at his home in Chicago on Friday, and treated wife Michelle to a Valentine's Day dinner downtown last night. The couple was spotted leaving upscale Table Fifty-Two, which specializes in Southern cuisine, with the first lady toting what appeared to be a doggie bag.

    The president plans to spend the Presidents' Day weekend in the Windy City, and is not expected to sign the bill until Tuesday, when he travels to Denver to discuss his economic plan.

    Both the House and Senate passed the bill Friday night.

    The push to get the bill through before the holiday weekend was so frantic, members of Congress didn't have a chance to read all 1,071 pages of the document before they could vote.

    What we have here is the country's first 5 day work week President...


    Such an emergency that he flew to denver after a 3 day weekend,.


    If it was such an emergency, hope and change could have signed it.



    Still why was it not available for review as promised?






    - So it's not an economic crisis and the economy is fine? Your complete ignorance of the last year has been noted.

    Yeah such an "emergency" Obama flew to CO after a 3 day holiday.

    Your complete failure to provide any evidence for this being considered "emergency legistlation" NOTED.





    So you do not believe the right to petition exists?

    A law banning bringing up the Fairness Doctrine would be counter to the right of the people to petition.



    Good example. Note how the law was put into place, then repealed? That is how democracy works.


    Now if you have a supreme court ruling showing banning this would be uncontitutional, we could go from peurile to sophomoric with your arguments.
