That is a flowerchild name if I ever heard one. And Savage has the audacity to bitch about dopers and hippy era left overs.

As a young man Savage was a leftist social worker. He gradually came over to the right when he learned how the world is. A big factor in his transformation was being passed over for a tenure track position (he says) because of affirmative action. Why wouldn't he have the right to rail against dopers and hippy era left overs? He got smart and changed. They haven't.

We chose to discontinue Rockstar because we do not want any part of the prejudice and hate that Michael Savage promotes.

I would think that New Seasons Market carries more products on it's shelves that are represented by individuals/groups that have displayed and voiced prejudice and hate against Christians, conservatives, republicans, the military, oil companies, etc., etc., than products represented by individuals/groups that rail against the left. Seems that the letter from CEO Brian of New Seasons is directed more towards convincing himself that his actions were correct. He can carry whatever products he wants to carry on his shelves, but he is living in a dream world............headed towards "utopia" with blinders on.

What ever happened to his wife. He had her on a couple times before the show went national. She was quite a looker.

Add me to the list. I would rather have a root canal than listen to Savage. Hell, I'd rather have my tongue stapled to concrete and runover with a car than listen to Savage.

Savage entertains in small doses. Sometimes he even has a point.

I agree with much that Savage promotes.

What does he say? It's about protecting our Culture, Language, and Borders?

I agree with that wholeheartedly.

And the "Savage Nation" term, he explains, means that we need to become a more savage nation. That the Politically Correct influence has turned we Americans into whimps. Savage yells at us to get more angry -- as a justified reaction to all of this liberal PC crap!

Savage's radio program is his version of "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore." Be truthful. How many of us feel the same?

Now you've got me goin'!!!

Oregon may not be able to split into two states, but didn't the Compromise of 1850 (where Texas joined the Union and gave up its rights to Colorado and New Mexico in return for payment/forgiveness of war debts) give Texas the right, at any time, to split into two states, each with its own Senators and Representatives?

That's why I'll always think of Colorado as Baja Texas.

RE: "Savage's radio program is his version of 'I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore.'"

That's a great way of describing it.

Giving it back to the leftists after fifty years of them suppressing dialogue by screaming epithets at conservatives is the Savage way. Others are catching on.

Limbaugh is another one I've listened to since day one (on KFBK in Sacramento back in the mid 1980s). Rush seems much less tolerant of liberals today -- more likely to be combative than carefully explaining.

No more kowtowing! No more MSM information gatekeepers.

To wit, in the 1960s and 70s anyone pointing to the Tenth Amendment and objecting to transferring all power to government employees in Washington, D.C. was a racist. "You're for states' rights? You racist! You racist!"

No more. Savage, et al. respond by yelling back, "Pound salt!"

The tender ears of the store owner, et al. ain't use to it. They miss the old days when the yelling was one way.

That's putting it mildly. Yet people fall for his schtick day in and day out.

Yes, You are Correct IMHO. Mike serves up a great rant,but thats about it. No real problem solving at all.

Well, he's 63, born in 1942, meaning he was in his 20s during the flowerchild era, so it's totally plausible.

It's been some time since I have had to go into a, "Savage Reeducation Camp," (I turned off his show), but now I am back. It's good to see other people realizing now that Mikey is all about Mikey. I have never heard of a more self obsessed blow hard in a long while. Now this comes from someone listening to him since the late 90's. All show, no go.
