How Stupid Can You Be?

That’s not a question you want to ask your lawmakers or the chief executive in power. Not that asking the question would be so bad, but nowadays, you have to be scared of the answer, because apparently there are NO limits to their stupidity. The stupidity du jour is the new “Diversity” Czar, Mark Lloyd.

I can understand if you haven’t heard of this man- I hadn’t either, but when I heard what his idea of diversity was, my ears pricked up- for the simple reason that he is the newest tool of the left to dismantle our Constitution, and he is going to take on our Freedom of Speech. 

In the old days, the “tool” used was a little thing called the “Fairness Doctrine”, wherein anyone who espoused a political point of view had to leave free time to an opposing viewpoint- but that was dismantled in the 80s, and talk radio began to flourish, with Rush Limbaugh taking the lead. Local radio began to sprout up, with many of the local voices being conservative in nature,

There was no impedement to liberal voices on talk radio, they were free to talk all they wanted, but as we have seen in the case of the radio station Air America, no one tuned in to listen, at least not in the amounts to make it a commercially viable enterprise- not the fault of conservatives- but it seems that liberals, socialists, and communists do far better when they get stuff for free.

And that is just what Mr. Lloyd is prepared to do , in the name of “diversity”. He has proposed to charge talk radio stations, (listen up), 100% of their estimated gross for renewal of their licenses. Okay, now read that sentence again, slowly- Mr. Lloyd wants to charge these stations ALL of their profit, PLUS whatever it costs to run the station, just to keep that station on the air.

In 2006 while at the liberal Center for American Progress Lloyd wrote a book entitled, Prologue to a Farce: Communications and Democracy in America. In the book he presents the idea the private broadcasters (private business) should pay a licensing fees which equals their total operating costs so that public broadcasting station can spend the same on their operations as the private companies do. By doing so he hopes to improve the Corporation for Public Broadcasting currently at $400 Million for 2009.

Not only does he want to redistribute private profits, he wants to regulate much of the programming on these stations to make sure they focus on “diverse views” (Progressive Views) and government activities. I am all for that when I see on PBS a conservative voice next to Bill Moyers. And when I hear a conservative voice on NPR or just voice on NPR that sounds excited with some passion.


If these stations do that, that money will be given, through “grants” to minority owned stations, so these stations can parrot the party line, which of course is liberal in nature. Since Liberal stations cannot make money on their own, all the big, bad old conservative stations would have to “subsidize” these ideological cripples.

This is bad, because this is a direct assault on Freedom of Speech, our First Amendment, and concerns not only talk radio, but eventually print, visual, and the internet. Everybody will be adversely affected by this Czar and his decisions. The fact that this is illegal doesn’t concern those in power, as they have made an art of getting around those pesky Bill of Rights amendments, by forging laws that skirt the main issue, and attack the flanks, like a cowardly hyena.

What is truly alarming is that this makes, by my count at least four of the first ten amendments that this administration is actively attacking- The first; Freedom of Speech and the right to a free press, the Second Amendment, the right to bear arms, is under attack by new taxes on sales of firearms, and possible new restrictions due to the fictitious amount of firearms that “appear” in Mexico drug cartel fights.

Then there is the Fourth Amendment, protection against unreasonable search and seizure, and the right to privacy, which goes down the drain with the Healthcare bill’s provision whereby the administration can have unwarranted access to your medical records, and bank accounts, so they can jerk  money and information from your private records. Lovely.

And last but not least, they have been chipping away at the Tenth Amendment, that of State’s rights– simply by compelling the states to take the stimulus money. It is true that some states need the money, some might not, but to attach strings to this money, in order to better control these states, is blatantly unconstitutional.

This is a coordinated and cooly systematic attack on the fundamental tenets of our lives and country. The Constitution is the glue that holds us together as nothing else; it is the reason we have lasted so long, as large and diverse as we are.

Now, this socialist administration is looking to take us apart and re- make us in their image, which has nothing to do with the Constitution- indeed, the Constitution is a roadblock they cannot abide, because it reminds them of what they cannot do. They want a document that says what they can do. 

They are very determined in their traitorous endeavors- they will not stop until they literally can go no farther, and right now, that stops with the Supreme Court. God help us if they manage to tilt the court to the left, and that possibility is there. If Justice Kennedy were to retire, then the balance would shift drastically to the left.

All that would be left then would be to influence the legislatures of the various states to convene a Constitutional Convention to amend the Constitution in their favor, and with their bullying of the States in this stimulus thing, they might begin to get their way. 

In the meantime,meet the new Boss- the one with the power to abridge your flow of information to suit this P.O.S. administration. You might think this would wake up the rest of the media, but no- not yet.

I guess they will finally wake up when the gag is slipped on- by then it’s too late.

    Obama and these czars aren’t stupid. They know exactly what they are doing. They are evil personified and have no love for America. God help us all.

      Exactly- that is why they have gone around the Constitution with all their little czars who do not need the oversight of Congress, like THEY would do anything to rile Hiz Lowness.
