If you dont like Rush, turn him off

I hear we have a censorship issue going on here in Homer and thought I would put in my 2 cents worth. Seems a few liberals want Rush Limbaugh taken off the Homer airwave.

First, I thought liberals were open to other peoplespoint of view? I guess Rush is right, liberals only support free speech if you agree with them; If not, they resort to censorship. Kinda reminds me of a couple infamous people from history: Pol Pot, Ho Chi Min, Stalin and Hitler come first to mind.

If they dont like Rush, they are free to turn off the radio or listen to something else. Dont assume you are speaking for anyone else. Let me make my own decisions about what I want to listen to. What these people are doing is the epitome of arrogance. They must be bloated with self importance.

I spend a fair amount of money in Homer, and I am going to go out of my way and spend more of it for the sponsors of Rushs show. And as for any business thatsupports the petition to remove Rush from theHomer airwaves, they will receive zero businessfrom me. Im gonna vote with my pocketbook.

If this is all about what Rush said a couple weeks ago, Rush apologized, and what Rush said pales in comparison to what Bill Maher said about Sarah Palin. Bill Maher called Sarah Palin the absolute worst thing you could call a woman, and yet he gets a total pass. Then, Bill Maher donates $1 million to Obama, which I thought was illegal, and so far, Obama has kept it. Where is the liberal outrage over what Bill Maher said?

I guess the moral of the story is: If you are a liberalDemocrat you can say anything you want about a conservative or a Republican and get a total pass on it.

No, thank you. Our Constitution and Bill of Rights was paid for in blood, and that sacrifice should not be dismissed by a few people without the mental ability to turn off the radio or change the station.

So, thats my 2 cents and Im stuck with it.
