What is she calling for is nothing more than an early page out of a fascist handbook. Our founding fathers were concerned about the likes of D. Stabmenow. Right in the First Amendment: D. Stabmenow, keep your fingers off the free speech. And like everything else, the left's mentality is to try to figure out a way to wiggle liberty away from the citizens; to get around the Constitution. They cannot control the content of political speech. Let's see why does it matter who is her husband:
Athans, 46, was executive vice president of Air America, which filed for
bankruptcy in 2006. In early 2006, Athans left Air America Radio, which
emerged from bankruptcy in 2007. Athans now heads TalkUSA Radio, based in
Why is this relevant? He is the co-founder and former CEO of the liberal-progressive Democracy Radio, , the group that owned Air America. Her husband was working for conservative radio hosts' competitors. Her husband was a failure with liberal-progressive "democracy radio". They cannot compete in the free market, no matter how many millionaires subsidize them!! They're a joke! And her husband was knee-deep in all of it. She wants now to use her position as a U.S. Senator to destroy conservative talk radio, in order to help these people who failed on their own, including her husband.
How does a senator get away with that? How is this not unethical? How is this not conflict of interest? Her husband was receiving a paycheck as the VP of Air America, which failed as a commercial enterprise and now they want the government to punish these enterprises that work, including conservative talk radio. They want to use the power of government to undermine the 1st Amendment and to punish success, legitimate, law biding enterprises.
It is unbelievable that in this century they try to take control of the airways. In the name of the people, of course. They try to shut down everybody who stands up to them when it comes to these massive spending bills that is going to bankrupt this country and destroy generations to come. That's why they want to quiet the conservative radio. Not because of the Republican Party or anything else, but because conservatives stay in their way. This is about raw power, this is about a rogue regime, trying to exercises authority that the founders never conferred to any politician. The new way of Obama isn't really a new way for most who understands history. This is not socialism, this is fascism. This is totalitarianism. This is Hugo Chavez. This is Fidel Castro. This is Hamas. This is Hezbollah, getting the hold of radio stations and the TV stations, to promote their propaganda, by force, by rule of law.
