I have a little tiny article that I want you to read. I do mean tiny.

FCC’s New 'Diversity Officer' Wants to Force Private Broadcasters to Fund Public Broadcasters Dollar for Dollar.

The "Chief Diversity Officer" in question, Mark Lloyd, is calling for the gross operating budget for every private radio station each year to be the fee (tax) they pay for their broadcast license for the year, with the monies going to the always liberal public stations. With whom they then must compete for listeners.

What that translates to, for those that have never run a business, is, whatever costs it takes for you to run your business (pay checks, bills, insurances) each year, you now have to pay as an annual license fee, which then gets pushed to the pubic stations. AKA, your competition.

So, say I have a radio station. I pay each of my hosts $1000 a year. I have 5 hosts, that's $5000 a year. I pay their insurance. That's another $5000 a year. I have bills to pay, such as electricity and water. That's another $5000 a year. So, I have an annual expense of $15000, just to run my business. Well, I now have to pay DOUBLE that, because my license fee is also $15000, and that second $15000 is going to my competitor.

I ask you: How does one RUN a business with this kind of BS going on?

Answer: One doesn't.

And that's the point.

Lloyd's instructions to Leftist activists are clear: use the FCC to pummel conservative talk radio. With fines, or entirely out of existence.

I know, I know. Evil conservatives. They need to just get out of the way, anyway.

Let me remind you of a little document, you might have heard about it: THE BILL OF RIGHTS, and in it our First Amendment, the RIGHT to free speech, free press, free religion, and last but not least, freedom of dissent, which Hilary Clinton herself pointed out is something that is very American, and is not to be snuffed out.

But who is John Galt?

It would be a Jrock-themed bar. Unconventional flavors of rums and vodkas, off the wall mixers, all thrown together for the sole purpose of relating to beloved Japanese musicians, and drinking them down.
