The Fairness Doctrine: Should we be concerned?

leave a comment »


The Fairness Doctrine is a real concern for those that speak to the issues from the right. The resurgence of talk radio began when the fairness doctrine was removed. The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that required the holders of broadcast licenses both to present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was (in the FCC’s view) honest, equitable, and balanced. The fairness doctrine was in force between 1949 and 1987 when it was unanimously was abolished by the FCC, but it must be said that it had been under attack and challenged in courts for several years previous. Currently, Nancy Pelosi, Dick Durbin, and John Kerry support bringing it back. For more information, read here.

Where were you?

Where were you? Where were you in 2008, when America not only voted in the first black president, but the first socialist one? Where were you when they bailed out the banks that succeeded in neither bailing out the banks, nor fixing why the debacle happened and put us in peonage? Where were you when Obama’s truth squads became a function of the Department of Justice and the congress passed a new fairness doctrine? Where were you when they came and took our guns away? Where were you when they told us our churches had to marry gays? Where were you when they implemented so many social programs that our tax rate surpassed that of Denmark? Where were you when they said that our children couldn’t wear a Star of David or The Cross in school? Where were you when they said my son couldn’t wear a flag pin because he might offend someone from another country? Where were you when the United States of America joined Canada and Mexico to form the north american union? Where were you when they destroyed our country? 

You were too busy over-scheduling your lives, succumbing to the consumerism that is the new religion in this country,  and abdicating your responsibilities to your creator, to your country, to your family and to yourself to a central authority because you wanted to feel safe and secure. May the comfortable lifestyle for which you have traded your life and liberties suit you well in posterity and may the slavery, indentured servitude and peonage you have accepted in return be a light sentence as compared to the one you will see in hell, as we won’t miss you.
