KTKK Revisited

Well, it has been 4 days since KTKK has implemented their new schedule. Stockwell's shows have been very good and Sumpter's Show has improved quite a bit. Of course, I think Sumpter's mis-use of the word Anarchy needs to be addressed. A few people clamoring to get a gay marrige licence is NOT Anarchy. Anarchy is the absence of a ruler. We should be so lucky. The fact is that we have never been further from Anarchy. The USAPA has infused more government into more aspects of our lives than ever. OK, let me get back on track. I have listened to the Kirkwood/Cook show and I must admit that it is better than I expected. However, it still sucks. I heard Kirkwood for 5 minutes today and had to turn off the radio. The man is a Jackass.


n 1: a stupid fool [syn: fathead, goof, goose, cuckoo, zany]

He substituted "baby killers and gay marrige folks" for the word Democrats. For crying out loud, get someone on the air with a little bit better vocabulary. The man can't go two days without trying to incite hate and division.
What has any of this got to do with freedom and the west, you ask? It was refreshing to have a radio station that demonstrated that not all radio stations would cave in to the pressures of "the establishment". A radio station like K-Talk is a rare find. I believe such freedom of the airwaves can only exist in the West. Only in the west are listeners passionate enough to listen and participate in a daily discussion about their rights. It was quite a treasure - a diamond in the rough. The freedom movement needs more stations like KTKK. The owner, Dick Perry, is to be commended for his committment to freedom and for allowing the hosts to speak freely for all these years. It is my sincere wish that KTKK will continue the keep this neccessary forum alive. Everyone who listens to KTKK should urge everyone they do business with to advertise on KTKK. We also need to call KTKK and give them positive feedback on the hosts and programs that we enjoy most.
We all need to keep the station a beacon of truth and diversity. While I most enjoy libertarian programing, I enjoy listening to liberals, right-wing conservatives, and independents. These discussions allow us all to learn more about subjects that are outside of our comfort zone. We must all be tolerant of other points of view and relish the thought that there is still ONE station with enough courage to put forth ALL points. You might not like abortion, legalization of medical marijuana, flouride discussions, or gay marriage, but thank God that one man has the guts to allow different points of view to be heard. Call KTKK and say "thank your for being different for all this time. Please continue to offer diverse points of view" - 801-253-4883
