Hi Hawk. Been reading you awhile, thought I'd let you know.
As regards this cartoon - isn't this how it always starts? Remove dissent? and what are they so afraid of?

What are they so afraid of?... Frankly, I think they're afraid of competition. They can't compete in an open marketplace of free ideas. Liberal talk radio "Air America" is in a shambles. National Public Radio (NPR) and the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) are forced to rely on federal tax money as well as big private and corporate (read: 'liberal') donations to remain on air. The big papers like the NY Times and LA Times are losing readership. The former big TV networks (CBS, NBC & ABC) are battling to stay relevant with cable TV diluting their viewership. The ratings of CNN, MSNBC and CNBC are pretty much in the toilet.

Let's face it. These libs are control freaks. They liked it when there were only 4 TV channels, and they controlled all of them. They loved it when there was only 12 or 15 TV stations and PBS was still important. They hate it now that FoxNews has high ratings. They hate the fact that Talk Radio is flourishing (and dominated by conservatives). They hate the fact that bloggers can be conservative as well as liberal. They haven't won many elections since 1980. They're afraid of not being in complete control. They're afraid of becoming irrelevant.

OK. Rant over.

P.S.-- Thanks for "Viewing"! Always happy to have new readers.

(:D) Best regards...
