    Once again...

    Censorship is NEVER the answer in a free society, no matter what else that is ALWAYS going to be true.

    Differences of opinion are GOOD for free societies.

    I can certainly understand this opinion, but take it to the next level. In the cause of Freedom of Speech and (lack of censorship) should we openly advertise that we want at least One Channel for EVERY Political Opinion? Should we have one channel for FASCISTS, and another one for NAZI's,
    and another channel for COMMUNISTS, and another channel for ANARCHISTS, and another one for TERRORISTS? After all, (according to your idea) they ALL deserve EQUAL RIGHTS to express an Opinion. And while the American people are being bombarded with weird ideas all day & night, they barely have time to listen to the SANE people on the airwaves. THEY NEVER GET TO HEAR THE GOOD GUYS, so they begin to "believe" all the stuff that is false, brazenly misleading, & even harmful to this nation. JUST LIKE RIGHT NOW, 50% of Americans actually believe the nonsense being put out by the radical right wing media, & so they vote for people that would have never made it to "dogcatcher" in the golden days.

    A clever enemy could take advantage of this trend, (let everybody have an equal voice on the airwaves) & keep SO MANY dissenting voices on the air, that the INTELLIGENT & GOOD guys can't be heard thru all the confusion. It is like putting "psycho drug" music on the air all day & night, so our kids hear nothing else, & then are subjected subliminally to enticements to take the drugs, & then go do dangerous criminal acts, & things that end up putting them in prison or a psychotic ward. (Certain kinds of rap music about "syrup" (a drug) has been almost hypnotizing teens to take it, then do crazy things that put them into jail. This was all ADMITTED by a young druggie who got into that. SO SHOULDN'T WE limit what kind of Music is on the radio, to prevent crimes & addiction, & a life wasted in a prison cell? That may be CENSORSHIP, but who needs to convince a huge percent of our youth, to become inmates in an asylum? Don't we have enough LOONIES running around, right now?

    Again I do not want the Government making the decision for me to what I listen to or to whom, I do not need some government drone telling me who is and who isn't a loon, nor do I need or want the government to decide what is truth and who is telling the truth, I have the sense to turn the dial whenever something bothers me or I don't want to listen or watch that particular media. I think our prisons are filling up with our young people not because of the music or drugs or Rush or Sean or even Bill O'Reilly but because of the total break down of the family unit and the concept of self-respect, and with an almost guaranteed sense of no accountability for their actions, I am surprised there isn't more mayhem being committed on our streets.

    I don't need the gov telling me all either but I had no problem with the repealed law that kept Rush off the air. Apparently the system that owns the government did have a problem with the law that kept Hitler radio off the air, thus now we have Rush. As far as the family scene breaking down, what did you think would happen when the system made sure mom had to work too? As far as more mayhem, it is here, the systems radio doesn't tell what is really going on here.

    I don't think Ed Schultz should be on the air as he spews the same type of inflammatory rhetoric as some claim that Rush does, Chris Mathews also, because he is anything but unbiased in his commentary's, I could go on but I believe you get my point, government controlled censorship is wrong, a free society needs freedom and that requires a free speech clause in their constitution, free choice is having the option to not listen while Censorship takes that option away, free choice also allows me to listen to what I want, government censorship tells me what to listen too. There are just as many far right radio commentators as there are on the left side, but it is your choice to listen or not listen, but it is not your or anyone's right right to tell me whom or what I should listen too.

    What we are hearing from the Rush crowd, telling us what to do, or HOW TO VOTE, is NOT THE GOVT. It is the voice of the GOP, pure and simple, using every technique in the book to "brain-wash" us to believe total LIES put out by the Republican Party. I have tried to explain it, but to put it as simply as I can, the GOP is operated by the JBS (Birch Society) which has been operated as a "subversive" group, since 1958. It is entirely based on the Communist Party, using all their methods, procedures, & techniques. The Founder of the Birch Society, Robert Welch, read extensively about Lenin, Marx & Hitler, (to follow their methods) before he founded the Birch Society with 12 Republican millionaires. (55 yrs ago). Their goal was to takeover the Republican Party, & USE IT to takeover the US Govt, WHY? Because Robt Welch (Birch Society founder) had been taught that America should NOT be a "Democracy" --- & that the founding fathers did not intend for it to be one. -- HOWEVER I can PROVE rather quickly & easily that OF COURSE our Founders wanted this to be a Democracy. -- [["It is on this form that America was founded, it is Representation engrafted upon Democracy" --- "What Athens was in miniature, America shall be in magnitude" ]] (Athens Greece was the world's first democracy in 500 BC). --- Written by Thomas Paine, --- close friend of Benjamin Franklin, & a signer of the Declaration of Independence. (1776).

    So WHY did Welch (founder of JBS) LIE? The reason Robt Welch LIES is because he is a student of Lenin & Marx & Hitler, & as a corporate business leader in the US, he tried & could not get elected in the United States. So he suddenly decided he did not like democracy & preferred just to "usurp" power by "takeover" of the US govt. When founding the Birch Society, he met with 12 corporate GOP leaders, & gave them a lecture for 2 full days. Part of which was used to tell them this was NOT supposed to be a Democracy. And they were either dumb enough (or corrupt enough) to believe it.

    Most of this information is in the BLUE BOOK, (Members Manual of the John Birch Society), by Western Islands Press (their own publisher) in 1961 (& 1967) -- in Belmont, Massachusetts. (I have read 2 copies of this book, & it shows the whole subversive approach they were taking).

    When a subversive organization, plans on the systematic takeover of our US Govt, to give POWER to the wealthy few Republicans, & gradually take over our US govt so it NO LONGER functions as a democracy ---- (which is govt of the people, by the people, & for the people), Then that is called plain & simple SUBVERSION, based on the past world leaders in Fascism & Communism. (Lenin, Stalin, & Hitler). For the last 55 years, the JBS has been systematically chipping away at our democracy, trying to destroy it. Because what they REALLY want is a fascist dictatorial society, so they can rule us supreme (like slaves) so they will TAKE AWAY YOUR RIGHTS, especially your Right to Vote. (sound familiar)? Notice any weird stuff going on in Michigan? In the South? Strange new rules to limit or restrict OUR Rights to VOTE in many states. Gradually, but they are ramping it up right now, because the time is near when they plan the takeover. Maybe they will use this Syria WAR to lure us into total bankruptcy, or a way to get all our soldiers out of the country so we won't have any troops left here to defend us. THINK ABOUT IT. They have used any means in the past, from subversion, propaganda 24 hrs on the airwaves, takeover pulpits & schools, 24 hr Rush talk radio, rigging elections, bribing 1/2 or more of the US Congress, so they are totally dysfunctional. Vowing to MAKE OBAMA FAIL, (the elected leader of the USA), even if it entails destroying the faith & credit (& economy) of the United States of America. Willing to get us into YET ANOTHER futile useless WAR, since the economy is geared to benefit the wealthy few by stock market GAINS in the WAR INDUSTRY. The OIL industry also benefits from WARS. The GOP will really make out like bandits if they could keep the US in a constant state of conflict & ENDLESS WAR. (That is what this latest situation is all about). Their last chance to bankrupt the US Treasury, & make it hard to "follow the money" because it will all be sent to secret foreign bank accts, in Switzerland or the Cayman Islands. The GOP has tons of their money residing in those locations, so they "don't have to pay taxes" to our Uncle Sam. They don't care if America is destitute. THEY have their personal yachts & planes, to run off to foreign countries, & live in splendor, while they leave us in the midst of economic turmoil, bankruptcy, joblessness, homelessness, & pollution from their greedy oil & tar sands industry. THEY CAUSED ALL THESE endless stupid mindless WARS because that is the fastest way to BANKRUPT America & grow excess wealth in corrupt industrial stocks. And in the meantime, they are REAL CAREFUL to NEVER PAY their TAXES, because they WANT this Govt to be Bankrupt, & THEIR MONEY is real safe in the vaults of Switzerland or Cayman Islands or dozens of other illegal Tax Shelters. NOW THIS VERY MINUTE, the leaders of the GOP are really busy to start up yet ANOTHER WAR in the middle east, using SYRIA for their excuse this time. What have we learned from IRAQ, & all the OTHER Wars they got us into? Did we GAIN anything from those? NO NO NO. Thousands of our soldiers came home in caskets or crippled. Our US Treasury was looted and destitute from Bush's weirdo idea of "nation building". If you have to blow up a nation, in order to build it again, at taxpayer expense, you better THINK AGAIN. We could ALL be living in double condo's in Las Vegas or Palm Springs, or Hawaii, for the cost we had to pay for blowing up dozens of villages in the filthy streets of Iraq, or Afghanistan, or you-name-it. While we are virtually bankrupted by all THAT mess, set up by George Bush (#43) -- who did not know the difference between Iraq or Saudi Arabia, so we attacked & bombed the wrong one. You see Georgie, the nation of IRAQ did NOT attack our WTC bldgs in New York, on 9/11 --- No honey, it was Osama bin Laden, the guy who invested in YOUR oil wells in Texas, who supposedly attacked us. (You remember the guy in white turbans & robes, who invested in Harken Energy, & Arbusto Oil, that YOU OWN). His name was Osama bin Laden honey, & you let all his relatives go (out of the US) the day after 9/11 -- with no interrogation. It was like you really "trusted" that guy, or else you did not care if he really did attack the 9/11 bldgs...whatever. I know you did not major in Geography --but you should know that Osama did NOT LIVE IN IRAQ. No, that guy (in Iraq) was Saddam Hussein, who had been a huge ally of the USA when you had Cheney & Rumsfeld stockpiling him with all kinds of US weapons. You had been such lip-sucking pals, that Saddam Hussein had a pretty mosaic tile picture of your daddy on the floor in front of his office. It was very beautiful, like Saddam thought of that as BUSH's office there. And with all the oil money & weapons deals going on, Bush probably DID need an office there when in town. Also, Saddam had built a very lovely place in IRAQ, known as the PEACE PALACE. It had gorgeous carved white marble doves (huge ones) -- floating on the serene white marble walls. It was so lovely, like the man who had it built, maybe LOVED the IDEA of PEACE, & wanted a place for world leaders to meet. Saddam had been what is called a "progressive" leader in the middle east, he had a few elections there, (well what do you know? --- democracy) so we did NOT have to go bomb the place to smithereens, to "bring democracy to IRAQ".. (Geez, yet another LIE of the Bush Admin). Also, Saddam did not make women in his country wear the burqua (gunny sack head gear)-- & he let them go to college. He was providing many benefits for his people, such as he was giving them opportunity to get education at govt expense, and old age pension, & FREE Health Care. OMIGOD, no WONDER you had to kill that man, as he was giving FREE Health Care to his people!!! Gee Whiz, it turns out that poor old Saddam must NOT be allowed to talk, since he was obviously NOT the evil tyrant we have been led to believe. So we better hunt him down, even in the cellars of his hometown, to KILL him before the American people "learn the Truth." And of course BOMB the city to bits, where the beautiful marble Peace Palace gleamed gently in the sun. We must NEVER SEE those beautiful white doves flying across the face of those majestic walls. // NOPE, we must never know that the man we bombed & killed, (both him & his 2 sons) -- Saddam Hussein -- was a man with NO intent to attack us, nothing in his heart but a blooming desire to live in peace with his neighbors, & improve the condition of his people. He loved American Art, Music, Clothing, & wanted to be an ally of ours, to copy our nation as much as possible, to be just like us. And Don Rumsfeld was always over there, shaking his hand, while delivering supplies of weapons to his country. And stealing his oil out the back door. Daddy Bush owned oil wells in Kuwait, (once a province of Iraq) so that is the REAL reason we had to send troops to Iraq the first time (under Daddy Bush). Yep, oil & weapons & greed are the hallmark of most Republican leaders. It is too bad that Saddam had to be killed, because GOP "needed" that war, to follow their PNAC objective, to secure most of the world's oil resources for the USA, to keep Russia & China from getting it first. (Look under Google for PNAC, a right wing orgn). Talking about the liberal attitude of Saddam Hussein, giving good benefits to his people, (see Wikipedia). WEEP, America -- we are in the grip of very EVIL characters in the GOP, & they will commit any crime, tell any LIE, destroy any icon of Peace, & pursue Endless Wars, to keep America in conflict & turmoil. Meanwhile they have been systematically "looting" any bank, corporation, govt agency, & "trust fund" including Social Security & Medicare. They are the pinnacle of Greed.

    Now HERE comes the point of this article. THE NEWEST WAR that the GOP wants to foist upon us, because there might yet be another $billion or so left in the US Treasury that they did not loot. (yet)..... And while we are concentrating all our media and our energy on some idiot WAR, they will be resuming "business as usual" by looting every dime of every bank, business, trust fund, & govt agency --- & pretending it is the "cost of War."
    It is a fine cover they have been using for decades, to disguise their overt THEFT of our taxpayers money. Say for instance you are having some kind of War in IRAQ. Who is standing out in the desert sands at Midnight, keeping watch over all our combat planes, drones, helicopters, & even the Navy boats in the nearest harbor? While silent camels watch, somebody just flies off with a few planes, & sells them to another great ally in the middle east. Or maybe even an enemy -- who cares? THE GOP just wants the money, even if they screw Uncle Sam & all of us taxpayers.

    BACK to the Battle of "SYRIA" -- Whatever you think about the desireability of battling over Syria & its clouds of toxic gas --- that ain't nothing baby, compared to the toxic gasbag rhetoric of the GOP trying to find ANY way to start yet ANOTHER WAR to "Bankrupt" the United States, so they can fill their coffers with money siphoned out of our Defense Budget. And they also (unknown to most of us) STEAL it out of Social Security, which they are supposed to Pay it Back, but NEVER HAVE lately, which is why it is going steadily downhill to bankruptcy). In case it has been filling up again under Obama, they have to take drastic action to DEVISE a War, (any war) to get back into looting Social Security again. God Forbid there would be ANY of your TAX MONEY left, that you paid into all your life, for your Old Age. NO, like all other transactions (in stock market, or in the black market, or secret deals in Drugs & Weapons overseas) they (GOP) are robbing YOU. By the way, did you know we actually are propping up with OUR tax money (at least one) Opium dealer (who is making a stage appearance as a leader of Afghanistan)?-- with all that devious activity to
    LOOT our Social Security, & destroy our democracy, --- while LOOK, we (GOP) are trying to DISTRACT you all, from noticing how we have robbed you of your right to vote, or your female rights, (to birth control, etc) -- how we have taken control over your Supreme Court, how your Congress has been filled up with mindless buffoons, while your media airwaves have gradully been taken over by right wing propaganda & outright LIES. The work is almost finished. Of course, we (GOP) KNOW that Jesus was the Prince of Peace, while WE are the princes of Darkness, of EVIL & Greed, & WAR. But we (GOP) hope you will never notice these small inconsistencies, like the time we said "God wants George "W" Bush -- to be President".

    (It is enough to gag you, isn't it?) Well, you saw how WELL THAT worked out, didn't you? Obviously the War in IRAQ, started by "W" Bush, did NOT end up well at all. In fact, we are still fighting parts of it 12 years later. If God wanted that war so bad, how come he did not let us WIN IT? Instead we are stuck in a hell hole with no way out, but to watch our enemies flourish all around, as our invasion has ignited the wrath of our enemies, & they are having a great time destroying US soldiers, artillery, planes & helicopters, & especially destroying the US Treasury & Defense Budget.

    I think it is ABOUT TIME, we ask the profiteers from all these wars, the ones who made millions & trillions on the stock market, to PAY UP to Uncle Sam, for the service of our soldiers & for the silent endurance of our taxpayers. Instead the greedy bastards "double up" in trying to LOOT US even more. If you ever need PROOF of the true Patriotism of the GOP, watch as they deny health care to our wounded soldiers, & returning veterans. You will see NONE OF that Christian charity, coming thru in those monsters.

    But remember this: JESUS was NOT a warmonger. He was called on the day of his birth, "The Prince of Peace" --- (for those of you who are only a "C" student (like "W") -- THAT Means that Jesus was "Anti-WAR". (a Peacenik).
    ---And the Bible says, "Blessed are the PeaceMakers, for they shall be called the "children of God."

    NOW FOR THE FINAL WARNING. The Bible predicts a big huge FINAL WAR, that will be the End of all Life on Earth, & the End of the WORLD.
    The Bible also NAMES the Place of this final conflict. It is "ARMAGEDDON" --- which translates to the "Plains of Megiddo" -- & it is located in the region of Palestine and Israel. Those 2 adjoining nations have been battling since ancient times. FYI (Palestine is Muslim, & Israel is Jewish).

    If we stick our nose into that "hot-spot" region, for whatever purpose, the people are geared up & frightened, they disapprove of our presence in Iraq & Afghanistan, -- it may just ERUPT all the forces of Armageddon. I know that the eternal "wisdom" of John McCain should be listened to, but he was WRONG about Iraq, and so were ALL the Republican neo-cons. ALL of them "CHICKEN HAWKS" (which means they are all Hawks about the gung-ho attitude of going to war, ---- but they were ALL too "Chicken" to actually SERVE in any War or combat. That goes for nearly all the GOP in Congress. So the Chicken Hawks are always at the forefront of "giving advice" to our President (Obama) -- but their advice is hardly more valuable than yesterday's toilet paper. (I hope Obama will give their advice the "sniff test") -- before taking any of it seriously.

    Just because of a few deaths in Syria, (sad as it may be) do YOU REALLY want to set off the END OF THE WORLD? THIS IS WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE TOTAL HYPOCRISY of the GOP, who claim to be "so very Christian." They don't even KNOW (or believe) that they are Tempting Fate by doing any more combat in that region. If you study your Geography of the region, ISRAEL is on the border of SYRIA, at its SW corner. Palestine is only a tiny part of Israel. (on its East side). Hmmm IF YOU KNOW that ARMAGEDDON (the End of the World) is in the region of Israel and Palestine -- then WHY WOULD YOU INSIST on Messing AROUND in that AREA? -- In case I did not make myself CLEAR on this issue, SYRIA borders onto Israel, & Palestine is only a small piece of land inside of Israel. Therefore, Israel & SYRIA share a 47 miles COMMON BORDER. So the LAST PLACE on EARTH that you should be starting a WAR, is anywhere NEAR "SYRIA" !!! (Get out your MAPS, and check it out!)

    If you have read this and understood it, maybe you could write or call your Congressman, to tell them we are on the verge of ARMAGEDDON due to this crazy Syria mess. Have them call or write Obama, to WARN him of the real Danger here. We MUST make them see that PEACE is the only true answer in that part of the world. In the USA, we are an 80% majority Christian, & we have been warned, but in order to save the planet, we MUST make sure the Govt knows how WE FEEL. I certainly don't want to see the End of the World YET. --- Do you?

    "Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press..." First Amendment.

    That pretty much covers the subject of this thread. It covers Rush, Reverand Al, and all the talking heads on all sides.

    We live in a free society, and freedom of speech not only is allowed, but it is GOOD.

    Censor them and you EMPOWER them. Their followers will see that the government is scared of them and they will only become stronger. They will still get their message out, believe me. The way to beat them is let them talk then prove them wrong, by pointing out their lies and inaccuracies.

    No body gets there message out there without the media, why do you think the system controls our media? If you don't think the system owns our media ask the Dixie Chicks!!! Reinstated the old law that kept Rush media away I say, the old law "does not infringe the freedom of speech," but keeps one sided Hitler radio stations off the air.

    Granted that the media does get to send a message to millions very quickly but to say no message can get attention without the media is wrong, we as a society are spoiled with the idea of instant gratification and we seemed to have forgotten that there are other ways to get a message out, abet much slower but it will go out, also I think its the other way around in that the media controls the system, the media moguls decides what you should hear or see for that matter on any given issue, so that is a form of censorship just not governmental.

    united you are partly correct. The government can somewhat shut Rush out of the old, traditional media like newspapers, radio, and even cable TV.

    The government can NOT control the 21st century media like the internet with Facebook and all those social media sites. Then there are cell phones which everybody has and with twitter and others. Sure the government can try to play "WHACK-A-MOLE" by shutting down internet sites 24 hours a day, seven days a week, but they will spring up just as fast as they are shut down. Censorship will not work, there are too many options out there.

    No, the government can't shut Rush up as hard as they may try. They can slow him down but they will NEVER keep him quiet.

    If the government shuts him out of traditional media they will only succeed in making him and his message stronger.

    Government censorship is NEVER the answer in a free society.
