27. Don't know about you

But I'm only living one life.

I enjoy listening to radio, and I refuse to accept the FCC allowing a corporation like Clear Channel to broadcast messages such as "Progressives Must Die!" as 1510 WLAC AM Nashville did several times over the last two months.

I will not listen to "Shoot Nancy Pelosi!" being loudly yelled over 1510 WLAC Nashville, Clear Channel FOX Affiliate, when I turn on the radio. Calling for the assassination of a duly elected official is an act of terror, is treasonous and is certainly not in the public's best interest.

Think Gabriel Giffords. Think Virginia Tech. Encouraging listeners to shoot people, or inciting them to mortal hatred for a political party - whose leader is the President of the United States, no less - is reckless and dangerous to the community.

I am not going to hear MY airwaves used to air this sort of criminal, discriminatory, violent content.

Some people are here to be thorns in the sides of the evil. We have nothing to lose.

Some people would rather complain and do nothing.

You make your own choice. I've made mine.
