    "Hahahaha", from one of the folks that screams, "racism!", with almost every waking breath.

    I see that you're OK with advocating violence, as long as it's directed at the target that you want it to be. What were you saying hypocrisy in an earlier post?

Force them to do business with him?
    the liberal philosophy

    they are for free speech but only if they agree with what is spoken
    they want freedom of expression but only if you express their views
    they agree with the right to protest but only if you don't protest against them

    I don't remember the exact numbers but, his ratings were quite good, especially for the time slot he was in, in the beginning. His numbers had a pronounced and extended slump with simultaneously his antics were drawing too much heat from too many places. With weakening ratings he just wasn't worth the liability.

    This is the kind of crap I'm talking about. When people hear this on the radio day in and day out they become mentally radicalized. No decent American thinks like this, right or left. This teeth clenched, black and white, swinging wildly at imaginary oppressors, its such a massive distraction from actual reality. It obfuscates the political environment so that actual, real, bad things slip through largely unnoticed.

    Look at the Benghazi debacle. From what I can tell there is some real, troubling issues at hand. However with the buck wild frothing at the mouth response of Fox, some on this forum, talk radio, its almost impossible to discern what is actually substantial, fact. This creates a hysterical circus which muddies the proper response, because nobody knows what is even reality anymore.

    What I find the most sad about this is the fact so many people are too dumb, ignorant or simply uncaring to realize they are being played by these media shock jocks. They don't understand that Rush, Fox News, Chris Matthews and MSNBC, etc. all say ridiculous and outrageous things on purpose, things they know are outrageous, because it drives ratings. They don't want to look at the rantings with a critical eye because then it might mean the listener would be wrong, and that's simply unacceptable.

    I've seen this happen to my mother's second husband, who is a very intelligent and has been an incredibly successful businessman. Over the last 5 years, he's become increasingly radical when it comes to politics because all he does is sit/work at home during the day and watch Fox News. Even my mother has noted how much worse it has gotten since Obama became President. It's a constant barrage of negativity and outrageous commentary and it truly does radicalize those who listen.

    Not to pop your bubble, but the walking away unscathed of the financial industries did not occur on a Republican watch, that all happened with the current administration.
