email suspicious survey
I just was called by an automated Republican survey. Jeez! Definately a "Push-pull" survey. Wanted to know if I thought Ronnie Earl was unfairly treating Tom DeLay. I don't think they will count my answers.
Other than the fact that Cindy Sheehan want us to withdraw from Iraq, why do you characterize her as a "far-leftie"? If that is all that is needed to be considered ultra liberal then I have news for you, there are a lot of us "liberals" out here.
email Bill of Rights
First off, you were much too nice to the second caller on the topic of Bush's new policy-marketing campagin. I would have been tempted to say (to him who "doesn't listen to KTSA") "Well, first let me thank you for listening to KTSA!" And the "liberal media" who didn't show people jumping off the twin towers on 9/11 included Fox News Channel. And we all know they're not liberal, just fair and balanced! I sent the following caption to E-N with a request to forward it to Branch for a cartoon: "We are dealing with an enemy that has no concept of civil liberties. "An enemy that has no respect for your constitutional protections in the Bill of Rights . "Well, to these terrorists I say: NEITHER DO WE."

email Brad spins
Yes I hear it more and more every day.If you say it is not than your head is full of Howard Dean and his kind you take 1\2 truth and twist and spin it until it is to your liking. I am more than a little sick of the hate that clouds the vision of the country. OH I am sorry I am not suppose to call you unpatriotic.
email get off Bush
Brad, NSA is performing it's mission per it's charter. You'd be among the first to complain if sleeper agent's weren't intercepted. Get off the president's back.
email domestic probs
I pretty much agree with what your opinion is, we seem to see things pretty much alike. I guess, my opinion is that this war was rushed into on false pretences deliberately, but beyond that, I believe the focus is solely on Iraq, both attention and MONEY. This president has pretty much ignored the problems at home….and does not seem to care. I am appalled that money is being cut from people who need it at home and the wealthy are getting tax breaks for the purpose of funding Iraq. ...

email pet-hair thong
Yes it's coming up on the one year anniversary of what might have been the best segment of talk radio ever to cross the airwaves. I do believe it was the eve of Christmas eve last year when you conducted this masterpiece of media. It was a phone interview with a lady that weaves clothes from pet hair various people send to her. The line that topped the classic 10 minutes of radio was when you ask her what if you have a small pet, could she just weave a thong? Her answer was "there are some things not even I would wear". Good thing I had already parked in my driveway. Now that it's been an entire year and I haven't heard a replay of that interview, I have questions; where do you keep all of the award? will you call her again this year? Did you get a new sweeter? Oh well it's difficult to recapture the past, maybe best to let laying dog hair lay. .when will you go to Sirus radio? Always a fan;
email Condi on laws
This is what I heard Ms. Rice saying over and over. "We are a country of laws". Maybe she needs to tell her boss. He doesn't seem to get it.
email NY Times sucks
The NYTimes has really lost its luster as the paper of record. Not only did they sit on the story about Bush spying on Americans - and through an election cycle, mind you - Bush calls the editor and publisher into the Oval office to beg them not to run the story and when they finally do, they themselves FAIL to tell us that. We have to hear it from Newsweek:
The president was so desperate to kill The New York Times’ eavesdropping story, he summoned the paper’s editor and publisher to the Oval Office. But it wasn’t just out of concern about national security.
Add this to the Judy Miller debacle and other reporter problems with the Times in the past years, and I'm going to have to reconsider my subscription to them. Having said all that though, the real issue is that THE PRESIDENT BROKE THE LAW. That's a whole lot worse than a blow job, isn't it?
Nah, I guess not.
i listen to your show as much as possible. I like your common sense
approach to things. Some of the callers yesterday disturbed me by their willingness to give up essential liberties in trade for protection. The
following is a quote from Benjamin Franklin, it is my answer to such
foolishness. "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little
temporary saftey deserve neither liberty or safety"! Keep up the good work,
