I must say that "Leftist Grandpa's" site was quite a read and view. This is one of them thing's that I hoped for long wouldnt gain ground actually... I mean... we all in the back of our mind's know these thing's can start to boil... but hope it dont for instance... at least for me, and many other's. Despite what these character's like O'Rielly(spelling?),Rush and other's say, and their influence's... it is very difficult for me to swallow any kind of censorship... and I know that some folk's feel that may be necessary.And these folk's are exactly those people who also put all our goddamn liberties in jeopardy by not simply using a lil personal discretion. I mean... when your into big time media, I personally feel because of the variation's of viewer's,you should use this. I am very strong about freedom of speech guy, and find the possibility of more censoring for what's aired difficult to welcome. It's the old goddamn story as usual of coarse... many have to alway's suffer the action's of the few... and it is the sole reason why even our privacies get invaded at times... and our right's weaken... because of those who arent careful, with no regard.This guy Shaeffer(spelling?)though, I actually admire his sincerity. I mean, it is so easy for us to write and programme horror stories of sensationalism... I sure as hell could make a masterpiece myself! I dont see any comparison in Tiller to Hitler ... it seem's like Hitler these day's is such a popular name/label, and those who use it dont seem to actually know much about Hitler... kind of like how you said once about folk's who use commi/socialism,etc ... and link the two or what have you.I like to use the term for instance in a satirical sense more then anything(commi)a touch of humor, but not to inspire hatred toward's folk's.

I'll shut the hell up now, since I dont run my jaw's much.... I tend to run my pen or keypad too much, or too lengthy.....

Thank You Sir.........

Perhaps I should clarify that. I'm not in favor of censorship either. No one should be silenced; the proper response to speech is more speech. People like O'Reilly and Limbaugh are free to talk, and the rest of us are free to point out the real implications of what they're saying.
