Goodbye Stern, Hello Morality
Yahoo! News ^

Posted on 03/06/2004 2:48:24 PM PST by allegiance

Thank GOD! That guy was a pox on the moral nature of this country. He claims that religion is winning the war, and I pray to Jesus that is true.

God bless America and President Bush

For future reference, mindless content-free vanity posts are supposed to be listed in the Breaking News sidebar.

(I suppose this really needs a </sarcasm> tag.)

Good thing you didnt use your right not to listen. Your delight in having the government intervene on your behalf surely is inspiring. No need for personal responsibility when the Nanny State is at your service.

Well, his affiliate on 97.1 FM here in Los Angeles has been playing commercials appealing
for his listeners to raise a ruckus to fight censorship of Stern.

Sounds like Stern has found his audience isn't all that big/motivated.

Or, he's cut a deal to make more money on Sirius or XM radio or some other outlet.
Stern is a survivor; he'll be back.

I get it. But many on FR don't get it. They still believe that America can exist in all its glory and freedom without any moral or spiritual code to live by. This is one issue in which the liberals have succeded beyond there wildest dreams. And it is this liberal indoctrine that is embedded in more than a few so called conservatives. They can't get enough of the smut on the public radio for all the kiddies to listen to.

"can't wait to see you squeal like a pig when President Hitlery moves to shutdown Rush and Hannity for espousing "hate speech"."

That is exactly why we need to make sure the Rats don't get back into power. If you don't want that to happen then we need to be unafraid to use the power God has granted us.

The FEC and the FCC need to fine any network or local affiliate that show ANY MoveOn.org ads. The fines need to be severe, levied for every illegal showing of the ads and they need to continue until the criminal MoveOn.org is brought to heel.

Stern needs to be removed from the airwaves for obscenity and for his lying, slanderous attempted verbal assassination of GWB.

These people hate America and are attacking it. They have the same motives as the terrorists. Action is required in order to save America and our shared values. Or don't you believe so?

I don't like Howard Stern either. So I exercise my god given right to not listen to him.

Stop acting like some drone in the Matrix that needs all of his choices made for him. Pathetic.

Three points:

First, private employers do not exert censorship, they exert judgement.

Second, the broadcast airways are currently publicly owned and thus subject to regulation by the public through their elected representatives.

Third, the first amendment does give Howard an inalienable right to somebody elses soapbox. He can put all the trash he wants on media that is not public.

I do not think the government will cause his demise.

They cannot seem to define indecency, and probably for good reason.

No, it will be the underwriters of the show that finally pull the plug.

I get it. But many on FR don't get it. They still believe that America can exist in all its glory and freedom without any moral or spiritual code to live by.

Yadda, yadda, yadda.

“The moral principle of the nation is much lower than formerly – much less than vanity will allow – Americans are too fond of attributing the great prosperity of the country to their own good government instead of seeing the source of it in the unbounded resources and favorable political opportunities of the nation.  It is with sorrow that I anticipate the downfall of this republican government…” (Tymn 135).
      -Thomas Cole 1865

Agreed. Zot the troll.

  1. Hillary doesnt need precedent.
  2. The Fairness Doctrine is enough precedent.
  3. The 1st amendment is about political speech, not boobies. For evidence: All of a sudden Stern becomes a "dissenter".

But shutting down Stern would be a disaster. It's like closing down the local bordello. If you do it, where do the rest of the lowlifes go?

I'm right fond of this one.

3:14 On her return bearing gifts for the bride and groom, Mary asked of Jesus, "What did you do while I was gone?"

3:15 Jesus said, "I turned water into booze."

3:16 Mary wept. "Another wedding, another brawl. What's with you libertarians?"

Are you implying that anyone should be able to spew any amount of filth and vulgarity on the public airwaves ?

The culture of any nation DOES require some standards of decency.
Using your standard, anything is OK?

Nope. My standard is the government doesn't make that decision. Things like goodness and decency are changed at the level of an individuals heart and soul, not at the tip of a sword.

I seem to recall a man who was murdered by the government because certain people thought what he said was indecent, blasphemous and a threat to their way of life.

Hey, I never listen to Stern, so he doesn't effect me. Right?

WRONG - Your argument is exactly like that of the Libertarian who suggests his drug use doesn't effect anyone else. "Hey...if you don't want to use drugs, then don't use them." This is fallacious. Cocaine, Marijuana and Meth all leave a trail of blood behind them. For every 10 lines you snort there is a murder. By participating in drug market you enable violence, murder and the destruction of people (especially children) with a propensity toward drug addiction. It is the role of the government to create and enforce laws to prevent this kind of "personal choice" that destroys our social fabric. The same can be said for abortion. "If you don't believe in abortion, don't have one." Right? Abortion is fundementally immoral and breaks down our social values by blurring the line where "murder" becomes wrong.

Government has a duty to legislate and enforce morality or you end up like Holland. Do you think Holland is some sort of utopia? Then why don't you move there?

One titty at the right time and right place and look what happens. Guess we should all be thanking Janet and her imbecilic lewdness for giving this the big push it needed. Howard will find some other venue. I'm not going to shed any tears. I'm not going to panic about conservative talk radio either. It would be like trying to take away guns--there would be a war if it got to that point.

The idea of a troll is to get in on a discussion to disrupt it, to start fights on purpose and discuss nothing. Trolls usually post vanity articles on their signup day and refuse to respond. How can I explain the concept? It's juvenile and pathetic, indicative of a weak mind and diseased --

Ba Ba Booey!

Although many adolescent libertarins will come to this thread to say "change the channel", I agree with you. Many unsupervised children don't turn the channel. And there is no reason for any adult to be listening to the garbage Stern spews. The government is right to get rid of smut. I hope they continue.

"Government has a duty to legislate and enforce morality or you end up like Holland." Where in the United States Constitution do you find Government's duty to legislate morality. You want Government to define morality? Really? So when the Government is run by Democrats, the moral standard will prohibit the "hate speech" of Rush and conservative radio. Hitler and Stalin would applaud you belief that Government should censor radio.
The hypocrisy of the false conservatives is that they want the government to regulate speech when it offends them, however will cry for limited government when those who agree with them are censored. How about individual responsibility instead of government intrusion?
