Doc S. seeems to think the Ryan pick is a mistake for Romney. Crowds are proving him wrong, so far.
Savage would probably say that about anyone Romney picked — and about Romney, too.
He would like the Savage/Romney ticket!
I wonder who manages Savage’s FB page ? Nothing but positive posts there .
His ego is so big he could only fit on a Savage/Savage ticket.
Live we are! with Babbin Nation.
Savage often says of us listeners that we are tired of all the politics and stuff or we are just too stupid to understand so he will talk about.. himself!
Fine.. but how about talking about his expertise instead of his lunches, his favorite movies, his youth. . . .
I've learned a lot from Savage from way back in the 1990s when he used to that health stuff.
I'd request that he expand beyond health and talk about just what are we.. 10 trillion cells, 500+ different types. I've read. Dr. Savage is the scientist. Why not? He drifts into C2C (d'oh!) stuff every now and then. This is science.
So what is he AGAIN.
Hopefully Doc will turn around, but until then it will be ML for me this week.
They turned away hundreds this morning at Romney event just south of me. I think it’s going to be a tough road to hoe for Obama Biden.
I wish he would delve into the ‘neuro-science’ and psychiatric drug ties to recent shootings.
Levin covers politics and “ stuff “ every day , 5 days a week for 3 hours a day . Levin’s audience is almost equal to Savage’s now . Apparently he doesn’t want to compete with Levin covering politics only . Recently , I don’t think Savage does much if any show prep . He shows up 3 times a week and doesn’t do a 3 hour live program . Realize he is 70 , but that’s no excuse for lousy show prep and the inane topics ( mainly about himself ) that he talks about sometimes . I’ll still listen on days when he shows up ( for now anyway ) , but I’m sure I speak for many when I say I am tired of tuning in only to hear “This is an encore ...” , or “ This is ( fill in name ) “ ...
Now it's Gabbin' with Babbin.
"A house divided against itself cannot stand" meaning that "this government cannot endure, permanently, half [statist] and half free . . . It will become all one thing, or all the other."
The other side agrees with Lincoln and is committed to statism ("fundamental changes" in America).
Yes, I know I've posted this multiple times. None knows our state better than Abraham Lincoln.
November we win and there's swarms of lawyers overwhelming the courts followed by widespread "civil unrest." It will be Election 2000 all over again.. I have posted the quote from Gore's daughter stating that her father stopped the Democratic Party activists from starting race riots. They won't be dissuaded this time.
November they win . . . .
I agree with your assessement of Savage.
It definitely impacts his affiliates. They probably lose many listeners when he is absent.
Several of the radio stations I used to listen to him on have dropped him for Mark Levin.
Savage is losing stations.
Maybe he doesn’t really care. Sometimes he seems more interested in writing novels.
No matter. I can easily click and load an alternative radio feed. I love the Internet!
Call the show at 1-800-449-8255
FR posted article: “The Lesser Of Two Evils Con-Game”
I vote for “Neither” in 2012.
I am sure that you recall that he has mentioned the connection. I agree that it would be beneficial to us all to understand that there is a connection to what we consume and who we are..
I am fascinated by biochemistry I think it's called. It's like we are one extremely complicated computer system..
gigabytes of muscle cells expanding and contracting together each using the energy that each obtained from the oxygen I breathe and the food I ate. So it's not me it's those muscle cells coordinating with hundreds of billions of all types of other cells that's reaching for that beer.
The 10 trillion cells are going lickety-split 24/7 solely depended upon what I consume and that's all that I am.
I think if Savage polled his audience he would discover that a majority of them DO want to hear his take on the current news & politics . The country is falling apart and he talks about the hamburger he fed his dog for dinner . Every time he asks “ So , what do you wanna talk about “ , I cringe .
“A refusal to vote, or a vote for a third party, is not a vote for Obama, or a vote for Romney, but a vote against the charade.”
I don’t want to believe it is a charade, but I gotta wonder how much of this current society is one.
his favorite station, WOR in NYC is getting sold, btw he hates the ryan pick
The worst thing Savage does is his obvious “paid time” segments with decent people from think tanks or WND talking about whatever they pay to talk about, with Savage saying “interesting”, “really?”, or “what else should we know?” every few minutes. Unbearably dumb. I wonder how much he gets paid for those?
Savage : “ This is the end of the Romney campaign. As good a man as he is, Ryan will be portrayed by the Marxists as another rich white male who wants to ruin the environment, destroy Medicaid and Social Security and give tax breaks to the very rich. Its all over.
The Romney schmucks are so out of touch with reality .... The Romney insiders detest conservatives and are trying to appease this core base with Ryan. Too little, too late.”
I’m completely addicted to Doc Savage. I’m hoping he’s just taking extra time off in the summer - he’s always talking about how nice it is in SanFran in summertime.
Also, he said something about doing a live stage show, maybe he’s prepping - he knows he’s getting an axe.
Clear Channel bought local radio stations in my area and fired everyone - Jay Severin, Mark Levin, Rush who got another station to pick him up.
It’s official, Babbin in tomorrow also.
Just said it 2 times as he signed off.
he got a lot of backlash over that romney campaign is over comment
(I know I started some myself http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2917452/posts?page=1#1)
Another 3 day week for Savage . I’ll be tuning in to Levin .
And rightly so .
“And rightly so .”
yep and I was already pretty fed up with savage, not showing up, reading off his website (no show prep), talking about himself, treating his show as a hobby and comments about hollywood (who cares?) and the godfather
BUT this put me over the edge-I like the Paul Ryan pick a lot, if it couldn’t be West-Ryan was the only other one I liked
wtg mitt for picking him!
Savage is full of crap, it is now official imho, I am done with him and disgusted with him
(keep me on the ping list tho :P)
yep and yep
I despise when he says this is too esoteric (for rubes like you)
Weiner “savaged” the Ryan pick. This brings up the question of whether Weiner has two heads because it is hard to imagine anyone could cram that much stupid in one head.
As a long time listener and supporter of Savage, I have a few bones to pick with the good doc. First off, his website sucks. We are adults. A picture accompanying every story isn’t needed. Okay got that off my chest. Number two: Savage tries so damned hard to be the quinessential contrarian that he takes stupid positions just to be an “outsider”, his opinion on Ryan is a perfect example. Anyone with a brain knows it was a good pick and will serve to pull in a lot of fence sitters and undecideds. Even the libs are scared as evidenced by their relentless salvo over the weekend, but Savage seems to think he knows better and is above the fray. No Mike, you’re just plain wrong on this one. I listened to some Rush this morning, and he makes no brilliant insights other than stating the obvious and then chortling about it, and everyday his statements are plastered all over this forum like he’s the Oracle at Delphi. C’mon Mike, snap out of the malaise and get back to some hard hitting shows. Not the silliness, advice crap, nostalgia, fill-ins, or memorex, but the meat and potatoes commentary most of us tune in for.
ping to regular posters...
I would just emphasize what I said above about someone with the science training and IQ of Savage.. for example, what does he think about how everything reduces to electromagnetic waves. I have heard physicists talk about this but what does it mean for Joe and Jane Sixpack once we all understand?
IOW, I do not give a damn about what Savage and Teddy had for lunch. He can instead "take a break" with something substantive and still not have to go out of his way to prepare.
How about the health benefits of turmeric? Savage used to tell us about things like silymarin (milk thistle) -- and as Savage explained he was not talking about Marin County across the Golden Gate Bridge from S.F. where most of the Bay Area's wealthy and silly liberals live. And though I first heard of antioxidants from G. Gordon Liddy, Savage explained them. Thanks to Savage I am in my 70s and don't look a day over.
I bought his book "Herbs That Heal: Prescription for Herbal Healing" years ago.
I am not anything close to a physicist as anyone can tell but I have to wonder about the interest in a Higgs boson as "the means by which elementary particles [quanta] acquire mass."
Obviously I cannot debate the science, however. Thanks for the additional information.
Savage's knowledge of nutrition has been extremely useful for me. I found it much easier to locate stuff on the 'Net with that knowledge.
If he is losing you, he is losing his main type of audience.
If more and more no shows, I’m gonna drop the thread at some point.
electromagnetic waves-is that string theory?
I really don’t have any interest in a health food show either, there are plenty of them already, plus I can find whatever I need online
I do like when goes OT on religion and the bible-very interesting,
every other OT subject tho I just can’t stand
If he is losing you, he is losing his main type of audience.
If more and more no shows, Im gonna drop the thread at some point.
I was thinking the exact same thing Dyna.
It would be sad to drop the thread tho-we are such a fun group :)
I actually thought he was going to retire after the 2006 elections, win or lose.
.. based entirely upon radio interviews on that show that shall never again be mentioned by me -- yes string theory uses electromagnetic waves. Mostly theoretical physicist Michio Kaku. I understand that he in also on TV a lot. I do not have TV
OT on religion is interesting -- for me this is religion, my faith is that we are our Creator's "video game" and can no more understand the Creator than characters created by human programmers can understand humans.
Michio Kaku is a crank with an agenda. I’d rather probe my brain with a bbq fork than listen to Science Fantastic or him as a guest on c2c. I’m sure he knows his theoretical stuff, being a tenured physics professor, but he’s still a crank.
yep his website does suck
it doesnt even have the site name in the top bar of the browser above the address bar
html 101 for crying out loud!
he better get back asap, and like dynachrome said-if he loses his base, well it would suck
and he is losing them
if he isn’t well let people know-geeze he treats his listeners like dumb drooling rubes
