    Very true.
    How much political blathering can a person take?
    Go Giants.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    I don't see a problem with that, it all depends upon what you enjoy. Its funny, I grew up in a republican family but I knew nothing about politics. I listened to Rush Limbaugh sitting at my desk at work in the early 90's. That's what got me interested in politics and low and behold while I listened to Rush, I am now a Democrat.

    I listened to Rush for years and I even agreed with him on some things.
    But his pompous windbag schtick just got tiresome after awhile.
    Honestly, Obama being constantly demonized by radio talk hosts probably helped the prez.
    Obie just didn't live up--or down--to their non-stop vitriol.

    No, I prefer to keep my brain inside of my head.

    No, no, no, no.

    I used to, many moons ago, but got tired of the hatred and anger coming from these paid talking heads. When it gets to a point where I get pissed off, just by listening to the radio? Something that is supposed to be an enjoyable experience? Time to cut it loose.

    Not only do I listen to it, that's ALL I listen to in the car. Granted, it's none of the political windbags, it's local programming.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    In the city I either get NPR which has extremely spotty reception, or right-wing am radio which is covered everywhere.

    Yayyyy.

    A great drinking game is drinking every time the words "Liberal" and "the Left" are used. Of course your liver would shut down in ten minutes but it would be fun for a little while at least.

    Technically, strictly speaking, I have to answer 'yes', though 'sometimes' would be a better option for me. I am very careful who I listen to. I seek out and prefer middle-of-the-road hosts, and I will tell you that they are hard to find. When I find one I like I latch on. I simply detest the extremes on either side, and pretty much never listen to the likes of Limbaugh, Hannity, and their similar counterparts on the other side.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    So you don't think people are capable of thinking for themselves?

    That's more the reason I detest him (his show, I mean, I've heard he's a decent guy out of character). There's no thought or consideration, it's just us vs them windbag schtick.
