This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

The Broadcaster Freedom Act

The Broadcaster Freedom Act, to outlaw return of the so-called Fairness Doctrine, has now been introduced in the House and Senate. Check here to see if your members of Congress are co-sponsors. The Broadcaster Freedom Act is H.R. 2905 in the House and S. 1748 in the Senate. To learn more about this, please read our recent column on the subject, "The Fairness Doctrine is Not Dead."

Again, do NOT miss reading THIS article!!

Below is a link to the roll call vote on the amendment to the House Financial Services Appropriations bill blocking the reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine during the fiscal year 2008. This amendment, which has NOT passed the Senate, will NOT in any case prevent a Democratic president and Congress from bringing back the Fairness Doctrine through an action by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). It will take passage of the Broadcaster Freedom Act to do that.
