WSPD's Rhetoric Must Realign With Reality

I had an occasion to listen to WSPD today and really felt the need to comment on the idiotic rhetoric that I heard in the brief time that I listened. I don't know who the commentator was but it did not sound like Brian Wilson (thank God).
The main thrust of his commentary is that everything that has happened in America is the fault of President Barack Obama.

He seemed to be saying that the president was calling for a boycott of BP which would according to him (the commentator) be devastating for the country which he (the president) is already trying to destroy. The president is responsible for the state of the economy, he started the Afghan War, he set the Lockerbie Bomber free and of course the president is negatively changing America., BP's unsafe conditions were allowed to exist because the president gave BP a pass.

Of course, the president is negatively changing America even though he has been in office only 18 months.

To think people listen to this mess and repeat it to their friends and then they actually start to believe it.

This is a dangerous station to listen to but being a free country and protected by whatever amendment to free speech they can say whatever they want. So sad.....
Historians will tell this story but by then it will be too late.....

Purnhrt I agree WSPD is but one of the syndicated extreme right wing "local" stations. If you notice their is no real debate of any subject. Always they continue to repeat the propaganda over and over through out the day till the subjects start nodding in unison. They (sponsors) pay huge sums of money to the "syndicate" to produce slick entertainment that leaves the ditto heads believing the most absurd talking points. Then comes the well healed who belong to the well funded think tank hucksters selling dangerous books of fringe beliefs.
I tell you this stuff their selling will not help the middle class citizen. Its a form of control to protect the powerful from the many who are taking it on the chin from these people.

called the off switch or are you just afraid you are losing your fellow kool aid drinkers to facts and logic?!! I don't know what DJ you are talking about but I enjoy listening to all of WSPD programs and love Andrew Wilkow on Sirius Patriot. I have just as much right to listen to who I want as you! If you want a debate study Plato---it's been covered.

Hahahhaahhahhahah, wow you two have finally found each other. Please get married and have children. Let me remind you both, you don't have to listen. There is an off button on your dial. Stop listening, get your friends together and share all your ideas with each other and like minded individuals. Pure in heart says the station is dangerous. I say anyone who would declare that ideas and speech are dangerous is in fact dangerous herself. I loved her description though of your free speech rights " whatever amendment to free speech". Read the constitution pure in heart, slow in mind.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

Fred where is the opposing view? Why not have a moderate show say a Don Burnard http://www.toledofreepress.com/2010/07/16/the-hot-corner-crocodile-tears/ as the host. Have you noticed every newspaper presents both sides of the political spectrum. Even the Toledo Blade carries conservative opinions, Jack Kelly comes to mind. With the new editor DAVID KUSHMA the paper has taken on more conservative content. No WSPD is some kind of wacko Fort Apache with kooks spouting off dangerous ideas that will continue our economic slide. Why am I addressing this to you Fred you're just the exploited hired help. Please forward to someone that can make a decision on programing.

Oh by the way I only listen for a few minutes everyday most of the drivel is the same through out the show so it only takes a few minutes to get the overview. I have change my listening habits to other venues. I do like the radio format while I work but cannot take the insulting talk of WSPD. For a opposing view I have been listening to WTWA 1310-AM Detroit http://www.1310wdtw.com/main.html from host Thom Hartmann NOON to 3:00 weekdays. He can also be watched on his TV show on FREESPEECHTV Dish Network (channel 9415).

Also if Fred gets over-the-top (which often happens) you can flip stations to WJR 760-AM Detroit. Paul W. Smith (Former WSPD host) is the morning drive host at News/Talk 760 WJR – the only News/Talk station serving metro Detroit and beyond. The Paul W. Smith Show broadcasts weekday mornings from 5:30 – 9:00 a.m. from the Golden Tower of the Fisher Building, in Detroit’s historic New Center, as well as from around the world, including Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghai, Jerusalem, Dubai, Paris, Frankfurt, Geneva and where ever news is happening. Paul W. talks with local and national leaders and discusses and breaks news that is talked about all day long.

About Thom:
Thom Hartmann is live daily from noon-3 PM ET and carried in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Detroit, Seattle, Portland, Phoenix, Santa Fe, Memphis, Grand Rapids, and on over two hundred other outlets nationwide including Chicago, Washington DC, Santa Barbara, Minneapolis, and on XM and Sirius Satellite radio.

He is also a four-time Project Censored-award-winning, New York Times best-selling author. His national daily progressive radio talk show, now in its eight year on the air, replaced Al Franken on the Air America Radio Network, is distributed to radio stations nationwide by Dial-Global, Pacifica, and Free Speech TV. More people listen daily to the Thom Hartmann Program than any other progressive talk show in the nation.

For the past two years in a row, Talkers Magazine names Thom Hartmann as the 10th most important talk show host in America, and the #1 most important progressive host, in their “Heavy Hundred” ranking. Check it out at www.talkers.com.

Oh Fred thanks for checking in @ SwampBubbles where Toledo comes to blog!

...replaced Al Franken on the Air America Radio Network...

Proving what, exactly?

Thom Hartmann's opinions are no more or less valid than those of Al Franken, Rush Limbaugh, Laura Schlesinger or Joe Pyne. The only reason Hartmann occupies his chair is high ratings. He is winning an ongoing popularity contest, nothing more.

Hartmann is just another scum of the earth libtard.....I'd be shocked if you werent a big fan of his...

Oh looky...he's also a fucktard " 9/11 was an inside job " truther scumbag:

http://www.911truth.org/article.php?story=20041026093059633

NEW YORK CITY, NY (Oct. 26, 2004)(Updated Sep. 11, 2009) - An alliance of 100 prominent Americans and 40 family members of those killed on 9/11 today announced the release of the 911 Truth Statement, a call for immediate inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur.

Signatory #41 Thom Hartmann, radio host; author, Unequal Protection

I'm not a marxist.....however....marxism rocks!..

The funny ass thing is that no one is stopping you from listening to Hartmann....but you would sure like to stop us from listening to anyone from the right...

Free speech for me...and not for thee...the libtard way...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

who think I don't know where the on off button is, let me reassure you that I do. I had been a frequent listener to WSPD but over this past year my schedule changed and I was not able to listen as much. Therefore, when I did have the occassion to listen yesterday, I was shocked at the content. I did not use the off button because I had children in the car and I was able to provide a lesson or what some may call a teaching moment.

But rest and be assured I won't be listening again, unless the content, rhetoric and substance changes. Because I home school and this year we will be using debate as a tool, we may use this station to provide information concerning the absurd and the ridiculous.

As far as the constitution issue and the amendment concerning free speech, we (my children and I) are aware of all of the amendments, the constitution and most memorized the Preamble when they were 6 years old.

A teaching moment? What did you tell your kids don't listen to the truth. The President is right no matter who or what he does. Yes, children no matter what ,don't listen to anything or anyone if they don't agree with the socialist democratic view point. Keep following the Hope andChange path right over the cliff.......

I knew you when you were a good man and did not have to resort to name calling to get your point across. What happenned? Surely your change of attitude has nothing to do with Barack Obama being president, that has thrown you so left of center............(a pun of course)......

"This is a dangerous station to listen to but being a free country and protected by whatever amendment to free speech they can say whatever they want. So sad.....

It's the 1st amendment dumbass....

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

This is a dangerous station that is abusing the public airwaves with hate filled content that does little in informing people of unbiased information. Fred use to be different but his private equity masters (employer) forces him to sell out his convictions for the ratings god.

The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, that required the holders of broadcast licenses both to present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was, in the Commission's view, honest, equitable and balanced. The 1949 Commission Report served as the foundation for the Fairness Doctrine since it had previously established two more forms of regulation onto broadcasters. These two duties were to provide adequate coverage to public issues and that coverage must be fair in reflecting opposing views.[1] This doctrine was officially introduced in 1981 under the FCC chairman, Mark S. Fowler.

Don't look now Zeitgeist but your employer is looking over your shoulder and wondering why you're not performing your job duties. Quick turn off the computer!

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

you're the union guy...the dues-paying, all-for-one and one-for-all, one-size-fits-all union guy.

You and your 'brothers' vote to ratify contracts ironed out through collective bargaining, all that?

Huh, that it it works, hot dog?

*snicker*

Keep flogging that hot dog you little fluffer gnome!

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

hate filled, name calling rhetoric v reality can be delineated in a time line posted as pre-Obama v post Obama. This is also true for Fred.

"name calling rhetoric v reality". Oh Obama has done everything right, its all Bush's fault, Fred was not having fun i.e. name calling but now is. name calling only offends the one's who don't have confidence in themselves. Other wise its funny.....

"DTOM" {1776} " We The People" {1791}

Because of the incoherency of your post I am not sure on how to reply but I will just say this: Fred can not offend me by name calling............I just don't see the need for any name calling......

Yet you'll gladly do it at the drop of a hat...

to my calling Sarah Palin an idiot on another thread, which I feel is justified.

Twila, if you were half the idiot you say palin is, you wouldn't be working a day care, in slimy toledo, Ohio. You would actually be something, a credit to your community.

I am not working a day care, I own a day care.......there is a difference, you know...:) And I really am something and an idiot is not one of them! LMAO...

Oh! I see it’s only justified when you feel it’s appropriate. Yes, Yes, the mental model of the typical Liberal mind set, it comes through every time you Liberals post. Now I know what Obama meant when he talked about transparency.

I would hardly call myself a liberal, much less a "typical" liberal.....Whatever! My politics hardly make Sarah Palin less of an idiot!

you a stalker?

Oh yeah...I had to really work to track this down:

http://twilaspage.com/

You leave a trail on the internet that can be seen from Orbit...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

had to work to find the information concerning me is immaterial. My question is why are you that interested in me? Are you a stalker?

I'm not the least bit "interested" in you...except to call you on your bullshit...

You put that shit on the net....for people to read.....you dont get to dictate WHO reads it...

Like I said...you leave a trail on the internet than can be seen from orbit...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

of the trail I leave, why are you that interested in me? To call me on my "bullshit" is one thing to stalk is another........

LMAO...still on the stalker kick eh?..

I'm not sure how you get that reading a publicly posted blog is "stalking"...

Why post a blog if you didnt want people to read it?

Oh...nevermind...I get it ...you are a perpetual victim....

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

"The stalker often strives to learn more about the victim." Reading a blog is one thing but to bring it back on another blog to intimidate is also stalking behavior.
Oh, and I don't consider myself a perpetual victim, but I do think you are a stalker, what else have you learned about moi?

I learned you have a fat ass...and you need a haircut badly...

An old lady with 3 foot dreadlocks just looks stupid...

And reading your blog confirms....you never finish anything you start...

BTW...If I wanted to intimidate you....I'd bother to look up your address and post it just like the libtards did to another former forum user....n'est-ce pas?

I also learned you got BANNED from addressing TPS board meetings:

There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at

Libtards run in packs...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Yep

But they're not called packs, they're called Locals.

There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at

As stated before, you sure are interested in a fat assed, old lady, with three foot long "dread" locks, with a blog, who as been banned from "addressing" TPS board meetings.

My address is public record so posting it would accomplish what, stalker?

You are an angry person......

Angry?...hardly...

This stuff amuses the hell out of me....

It's even funnier how you have to keep repeating shit over and over...

Get a hair cut...you look like a circus freak...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

you can write anything. Come from behind your "zeitgeist" and don't be ashamed of who you are when you write stuff like, "Get a hair cut...you look like a circus freak..."
Try to stay on topic without worrying about what I look like. STALKER!

Not your politics your ideology. It’s ok for you to call Palin and idiot, but other than that it’s not allowed by anyone who opposes your views... Something else I've noticed you Liberals, not just you, need constant clarification from responses.

"DTOM" {1776} " We The People" {1791}

know what my ideology is.......I need clarification at times because you speak in tongue, which I don't understand.......lol....

Your ideology is well known, you have made it clear, you believe in liberation theology, which is not a religion, but an ideology. That ideology is redistribution of money from whites to black people. It is an ideology of racism and hate.

You either keep getting it mixed up or you keep getting it mixed up. I believe in black liberation theology, the operative word----"black." And it has nothing to do with "redistributing of money from whites to black people." If I did believe that, then I would believe that white people have ALL of the money, which would then beg the question, how did white people get ALL of the money?

Oh, I know hard work!!! LOL....

Black Liberation theology is ROOTED in marxism...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_liberation_theology

Gotta get that piece of the money pie!!!!

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Communism, Capitalism, Socialism or whatever ism there is, all Americans are rooted in one or more of these "ideologies." I have never wanted a piece of the money pie other than what I have worked for and I don't mind sharing. Since you are so interested in me you can find out where I have worked for a dollar ninety-nine! Check it out, stalker!

Yeah and two of those ideologies are the BANE of freedom...and are directly responsible for the deaths of well over a hundred million people...

And only in your mind is reading a public blog "stalking"...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

What don't you understand my dear, what do you need help with.......

"DTOM" {1776} " We The People" {1791}

Anytime anyone says anything you liberal idiots figure won't mean larger welfare checks-I hear all the "hate speech" sh*t. Get over it already!

off the hook. I am not a liberal nor have I ever gotten a welfare check, foodstamps or any other thing that I have not worked for.

This child in charge is the most embarassing thing to happen to America since Jimmy Carter. Iran knows it. N. Korea knows it. EVERYONE knows this bastard child is full of himself and hot air, but somehow WSPD is not aligned with reality"?

Don't blame me,

PALIN 2012! Run Palin Run!

How pathetic is Obama if Palin can take him out?

I hope a real conservative runs instead of Palin, someone like Newt G., but Obama is such a socialist empty suit puppet that even Palin can kick his failed butt out of office.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.
