Fairness: When does fair become forced? When the government gets involved.

Let's not only make the airwaves "fair", lets make the Internet "fair". Excuse me?

Who is preventing anyone else from utilizing these sources? Is anyone on the Right preventing anyone on the Left from creating their own talk radio show or their own website to publish their beliefs?

What they want is to use an already established venue. They want to use the same stations and the same websites to publish their words and their agenda. They either don't want to or don't have the time to create their own following. They want the listeners RIGHT NOW without working at it. They want to use the "already established" venue so they don't have to go out and do it themselves.

Why? Because they keep failing over and over again...

A little side note:
Do you know how long it took me to create a blog? Approximately five minutes... maybe not even that long.

What takes the greatest amount of time is writing my thoughts regarding certain issues that I feel are important. This is a place for opinions and so are other blogs of this nature. The talk shows are also places for opinion. With opinion there are facts as well but the talk show hosts mostly expound on their opinion of the facts.

Anyone who is an American citizen can do the same thing. Oh, I know there are all kinds of excuses why a person couldn't do it. You may not have the start up money or you may not have support for your goals. Mostly, however, what you may lack is the experience and reputation to back up such a plan. If you want to have a talk show on how politics work, well you better know a lot about politics or have a lot of opinions you can back up with fact.

I could not have a talk show, I do not know enough about political history or how politics work. I look at something that has happened or is happening, research it as much as I can or as much as I wish and then, if I feel strong enough about the issue, I put my thoughts here... in my blog. And by the way, I also have a website that I PAY for called BugDivel.com. That site is used for my writings which are found here and in a few other places. It's not all about politics... although lately, it sure feels like it. If I want a greater following, I must find ways to bring people to my site... I can not demand to use someone else's site in order to benefit myself.

Now if we were a socialist society, then it wouldn't be fair for my neighbor to use a big website to push his product if I couldn't use that same site to push my product. Then again, if we were a socialist society, neither my neighbor nor I may be able to get PERMISSION from our government to even sell products, let alone have an opinion on the subject.

There have been some who have twisted opinion into fact and tried to change history in order to make their opinion hit the school books as truth. I recall the Daily Koos trying something like this when they made Palin's latest child into her daughter's child. The media picked up on this as fact and ran with it, not even bothering to check for truth. I think the real culprit in that was the media who took opinion and turned it into fact. Getting your news from a blog and then publishing it in a national newspaper as fact is not only stupid, it's just irresponsible.

I think it’s less about the (the left) being successful than keeping people on the right from criticizing them

May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
