Our conservative voices on talk radio have been giving warnings for some time regarding the revival of the “Fairness Doctrine.” Here is the latest: http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/opinion/columnists/vassilaros/s_598337.html
Here is the main stream media trying to make us believe the alarm is just the imagination of the “right wing”: http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-onthemedia14-2008nov14,0,5229277.story
ALERT: Here is the Fairness Doctrine in the form of a “localism rule” already being proposed by the FCC RIGHT NOW. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2008/11/proposed_fcc_rule_a_disguised.html
This is not my imagination:

Here is the CALL TO ACTION: Flood your senators’ and congressperson’s offices in Washington, D.C. with room-fulls of duct tape inscribed with “UnFairness Doctrine” to send our representatives the message of our firm opposition to the potential censorship of our conservative voices and corruption of our First Amendment. Our target date to flood the congressional offices in D.C. is Obama’s inauguration day, January 20, 2009.
In Miami-Dade County, Florida, I am leading the local collection of duct tape. I will be stationed in the parking lot of the Coral Gables Youth Center Field, on the corner of Segovia and Anastasia, every Sunday (except the Sunday after Thanksgiving) between 1:30 and 2:30 for you to drop off your roll of “UnFairness Doctrine” duct tape and $1 to assist me with mailing costs, with the last drop off date to be January 11, 2009.
Go out and get your duct tape! Stop the paternalistic nannying of us by our government and support the FREE exchange of ALL ideas.
Please contact me to help or to lead an effort in your area. I will be posting updated information regularly.
