Learned a Lesson

I don't know if any of you know, but I used to be a fan of Howard Stern (waits for hisses and boos to stop). My step-dad turned me onto him when I was 13. Don't blame him he was only fiscally conservative. I know Stern can be very gross and mildly offencive, but back when I was in high screwl he was funny and I wanted to relax in the morning and Rush would stress me out talking about Bill Clinton. So I turned to what made me laugh. I stuck it out with Stern for many years, but when he started getting political (left wing even) I bailed and came back to Rush figuring if I was gonna hear politics I'd rather hear someone I agree with.

I could have told you this moment would come, because anyone with half a brain will be turned off by democrats eventually. In a time when B. Hussein Obama poses a true threat to our country having Stern sway some votes will be a plus, unless he backs Barr. My next post will cover anchor babies and how they are NOT citizens. The 14th Amendment deserves a second look. But for now enjoy this.

Stern on XM/Sirius Merger: 'I Will Never Vote For a Democrat Again' Satellite radio talk show star cites 'gangsterism,' 'communism' for holding up deal. By Jeff Poor Business & Media Institute7/24/2008 3:27:46 PM

Sirius Satellite Radio host Howard Stern supports the merger of his network with XM Satelitte Radio and is fuming at Democratic opposition on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) panel.

After FCC commissioners announced they have reached a deal to approve the merger of Sirius (NASDAQ:
SIRI) and XM (NASDAQ:XMSR), Stern ranted about Democrats’ ‘gangsterism’ and ‘communism’ and the obstacles to the merger.

Stern described a phone conversation he had with his agent, who he described as a “liberal Democrat kind of guy.”

“I go, ‘That’s it!’” Stern said. “[I] go, ‘You know what Don, I’ve voted Republican and I’ve voted Democrat. I have vowed I will never vote for a Democrat again. I don’t give a [expletive] – no matter who they are. I don’t care if God becomes a Democrat.’ I said, ‘I backed Hillary Clinton, I backed Al Gore, I backed John Kerry. I am done with them.’”

Stern took it a step even further and called Democrats on the FCC “communists” and referred to their tactics as “gangsterism.”

“The fact that these Democrats on the FCC are communists,” Stern said. “They’re for communism. They don’t want to see companies – this is gangsterism. I said, ‘This is crazy.’”

FCC commission is a five-member panel made up of three Republicans and two Democrats. The Democrats include Jonathan Adelstein and Michael Copps. The Republicans include FCC Chairman Kevin Martin, Robert McDowell and Deborah Taylor Tate. Tate had been the swing vote on the proposed merger and on July 24 The Wall Street Journal reported she would vote in favor of the merger.
