ok, see - here's the worst part.
Did I mention that I had to drive through eastern Colorado and western Kansas - on the way home today, and the only radio available was Alex Jones, or
Rush Limbaugh, or Glenn Beck, or Bryan Fisher?
Focal Point on American Family Radio's Talk Network is the home of muscular Christianity. Join host
Bryan Fischer each weekday from 1-3 PM CST.]"AFR" - American Family Radio - Muscular Conservativism, with Bryan Fischer -
(yeah, just do a search for his name and see how many people of the Bible persuasion have rejected and ousted him! He's like Fred Phelps!)
so....Bible Thumpers who speak about "The Beast with the Tattoo and the Seven Heads and the Ten Horns and the Demons and the Devil and the Drunk on
the Blood" menace that is aka: The Left.
Yeah ----- "The Left" (said with a growl, and a sneer, to represent that thing).....
or Rush Limbaugh, sounding all put-upon and how he was never "funded" by anybody, and he just wanted to be a radio guy.....and got accused of

mixed in with farmer's almanac data and trivia....or
They don't get to (have offline access to!) listen to TEDtalks, or This American Life, or view PBS or BBC or other intellectual, high-quality
It is a travesty. Thank God I was just passing through - but at least I availed myself of the local available media to get a taste of all they have
to offer. I am not referring to every person who lives between here and Denver - but only speaking to the fact that the "radio" only reaches a
certain very specific under-educated group who have no other source (that they know of - whether real or imagined).
Yeah - it was painful....I didn't start yelling at the radio, however, until it was Limbaugh.....
