What Goyette doesn't comprehend is that Radio is a business. I stopped listening to the guy a long time ago, and obviously many others did to.

I contacted the station, which is a rare thing for me to do, to vociferiously protest Goyette's stupid positions about the anti-terrorist actions the US was taking.

The biggest problem I've got with anti-war folks like Goyette is they treat it like it was just another domestic political position. Something you can endlessly argue about.

But war is different. Once committed to war (and the use of force WAS authorized by Congress - so no BS about the Congress not "declaring" war), any decent citizen should support the war 100%, or leave the country.

The effect on the families of service members killed ought to be enough to prevent these people from turning War into a political football.

But even more important, the effect on the enemey to encurage his continued resistance, and encuraging the enemey to believe that internal US politics could "win" the war for him, as it did for Vietnam, should make the actions of a radio guy like Goyette, treason.

Comparing an era where wars were fought exclusively by nation-states, using military formations, with our current dilemma is less than useful. Enough nerve gas to kill everyone in Times Square might fit in one barrel. 9/11 killed thousands and did billions of dollars in damage without using any military equipment at all.

I have to admit I've not been listening to the Goyette for quite a while. He's a bilge for every Phoenix conspiracy to come down the pike.

I emailed the chickboss and asked her to put Tony Snow on in his place.

You may want to send him this quote:

"When you men get home and face an anti-war protester, look him in the eyes and shake his hand. Then, wink at his girlfriend, because she knows she's dating a pussy." -- U.S.General Tommy Franks (Central Command Iraq)

Hahahaha

BS?
The US Constitution is not BS.
The US Constitution does not enumerate powers to Congress to delgate its exclusive jurisdiction to the executive branch. Doing so would turn the legislative "branch" into a mere twig - something not ever intended by the founders. We can take joy in the fact that under President Bush, our armed forces have whupped ass all over the globe - but that does not mean we should turn a blind eye to the blatant trampling of the Constitution and the blurring of jurisdictional lines between the branches of government. We lament the fact that the judicial branch is arrogating unto itself legislative powers, with nary an effective protest from any quarter. Now, we see the executive plowing forward in the same manner - the Constitution be damned - but we go along because we happen to agree with the current President's politics. At some point in time, however, there will be hell to pay.

(BTW: Declaring War, per the US Constitution, would have eliminated all this fuss to begin with. So, why didn't we follow the Constitution in the first place?)

It is far better to be fired for taking a stand than to be fired for low ratings. This was just a PR managment stunt to give the host an argument for getting a new gig.

Why did this happen? Why only a couple of months after my company picked up the option on my contract for another year in the fifth-largest city in the United States, did it suddenly decide to relegate me to radio Outer Darkness?

Dolt, it's all about the 'book'.

poor ratings = no drive time

He's lucky to have a job, and after this rant he better hide from the General Manager.
