|It is truly pathetic...but then, look at Armed Forces Radio. On CSPAN the other night, they were discussing putting people who weren'tspeaking on behalf of Bush and his blind sheep. The Republicans responded that in order to be on Armed Forces Radio, you had to have at least 1 million listeners and be nationally syndicated. Randi Rhodes, Ed Shultz, and Al Franken (among others outside of the Rush Limbaugh and Dr. Ruth group) have over a million listeners and are nationally syndicated. Funny...that doesn't seem to matter to them. It doesn't surprise me that the FBI red-flag's dissenters...I mean, they won't even let their army be privy to the truth in news!|
The sick thing about people in power abusing their authority goes right back to the story of the boy who cried wolf. If we know that the FBI.....or the government....or those in jobs of power have been unethical in one situation (ie: red flagging those excercising their freedoms and their ability to think), then when they find a real criminal--someone who actually has cause for flagging, then what can we believe? Even worse, how will they take care of those who are really a danger to our free living if they're so damn buzy muzzling anyone not in their little club?
