trucker............IMHO, Kevin nailed it. Even Prager, who regularly bends himself into a pretzel trying to blame "the left" for any and every problem known to mankind, didn't try to hang this one on the left.
Michael.............I think they've actually gotten a LITTLE better about that (possibly because there seems to be a MUCH lower # of comments/interest these days). Not all that long ago, a LOT of my posts were being deleted. And there was no name calling, antagonism, etc in the posts......just a disagreeing position.
Enrique......................right. It's pretty clear that, with the great overabundance of right wing radio hosts, they all know that, if they don't keep the hate-meter on 11 every show, they are going to fall behind in the ratings.
Not sure if anyone caught this but there was an absolutely classic moment on "Mr Happiness' " show a couple of weeks ago. It was in the days following the Robin Williams suicide. During this particular hour, Prager was taking calls from people who had experienced some level of depression in their lives. Fairly interesting...and he managed to keep politics out of the discussion. Then this very nice woman calls in. She praised prager at the onset....she clearly was a fan and was not calling to give him a hard time. So, after a fairly long discussion, Prager asks if there is anything in particular that brings on her depression. IIRC, she first mentioned gloomy weather. But the second thing she mentioned was classic......."Sometimes, I can get depressed just listening to your show when I hear how bad the world is". If someone tells you that listening to your negativity can actually bring on depression, it might just be time to rethink your attitude. Anyway, enough about that...let's get back to this week's tragic episode, where this no good coward of a business owner had the audacity to remove a sign about bacon. We're doomed, I tell ya!
575.....let me help you out here............ENRIQUE is not saying that this guy's small business is subordinate the the national interest........he is saying that this is, in effect what Prager and his ilk are saying.
Michael........................great stuff! And I'm certain that there are several other examples available.
and often "political correctness" is a sword wielded by the right......has everyone forgotten how bent out of shape prager was when the mayor of LA dropped an "f bomb"
well said.........
"people who make a living being offended".........is that a reference to Prager?
I actually agree with both Luckydog and Mag..........to luckydog's point, yes, he quite possibly could have ignored it and it might very well have blown over in a matter of days. But, to Mag's point, once the owner did make the decision to remove the sign, it seems way out of line for someone who lives thousands of miles away, who has no connection whatsoever with the town or the diner, to get all riled up.
