    Re: Limbaugh, Freedom of Speech, and Govt.

    Did you know that Rush Limbaugh is broadcast by the AFRTS – the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service? Three hours a day by the U.S. government.

    I know they used to broadcast 1 hour of the Al Franken show after years of pressure from the democrats, but I don’t know if they replaced his show after he became a congressman or not.

      Once upon a time people all over the world listened to the AFR, because they played the latest rock ‘n roll hits, not because of the rantings of some rightwing idiot.

      As for the charming Republican from Georgia who compared women to farm animals, is he not aware that the anti-abortion bill is stopping abortions of stillborn fetuses? There are not even any lives to save here, because the babies are already dead. All he’s doing is traumatizing women and potentially endangering their lives.
