Name me one post where you said something constructive or positive about me.

It's not my responsibility to say things contructive or positive about you or anyone else. I enjoy debating politics. You do also or else you wouldn't be here. On the other hand, I haven't said anything as foul and profane as you like to talk. Bill, you're getting a little too sensitive. I'm sorry if your feelings got hurt. Take a breath (especially if you've been here all day. I've gone to work and returned for the day. I think you need a break). I express my viewpoints here, just like you do. If you want to find fault with my Christianity, then fine. If you want to chum with others after I leave and make remarks that I cut and run when it gets hot in the kitchen, then fine. If you want to throw the F word around, great. But don't whine when your feelings get hurt. It makes you look softer than you already are.

You, sir, cut and ran from me when I answered your question and when I put you in your place when you tried to act like a victim by twisting my comment into something it wasn't. But Santa Claus loves you anyway.

I was making a point. It had nothing to do with feelings. When I'm wrong, I'm man enough to admit it. But when you're wrong, do you? You were wrong about me being here all day because I just got back from the gym after about four hours. I question your Christianity because you talk and act like you have none. Christianity is living ones life in a Christ-like manner. The things you say would never come out of Christs' mouth.

I'm not Christ. I could never be as perfect as Him. Glad to know you weren't here all day. Brother, this place could make anyone go batty after awhile.

No, I went to rehearsal. Now I'm back. Now what was your little question? Fire away.

I would tend to agree.

Believe or not, your comments are always welcome.

Re-read my post, this is the questionable reading comprehension I was speaking of earlier. There was no question. I answered your "little question".

thinker, either ask a question or pose a topic for debate or something. I don't read minds. Otherwise, the topic is Stern.

Okay, so I'm sorry to pull you boys out of the playpen...but I just read this article about Stern and his manager received 34 million shares of stock and that they may now turn around and immediately sell them (valued at 200 mil). I'm not sure, but it seems to me like a bit of a lack of confidence in the network his name is carrying. Thoughts?

So Stern goes on Sirius tomorrow morning and I have to say that he is the one major reason I bought XM. He is getting a ridiculous amount of money and I for one refuse to give any money to his salary. He's disgusting. Way to make a practical smut-peddler the face of your company Sirius...

Rumors abound today that Sirrus is going to start monitoring for content and have him on a delay, further rumours is he is talking about leaving soon if they do. He has his money so I guess no sweat off his back, but one more bullet hitting Sirus.

XM listener and stockholder.

I heard this also. Not surprising at all. Stern is nothing without the threat of being silenced. It's his entire schtick. Without it, he's typical sophomoric, locker room, toilet humor. Nobody cares. He probably orchestrated the whole thing. He craves the controversy.

Yes it could all be a sham to get the ratings up.

It very well could be. Here is the funny thing. It doesn't matter what you say about him. It is only important that you are talking about him.

I agree with you there, as long as he causes controversy, then Sirius gets there money's worth him, whether its his not being/ being censored by his most recent network or battling the FCC or holding festivals to promote his self-promoting antics --SIRIUS wins. The porblem is...what happens when all that runs out? I applaud a company that does not use the publicity of a ridiculous individual to promote their product and instead relys on their better product offerings. He's such a joke to me, its sad and their thought that they will ever get their money's worth is just as sad.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with Sirius and the censoring issue. I heard he is only working 9months out of the year and four days a week at that. Good thing, I sure wouldn't want them to take advantage him...I mean with him only be paid 100 million a year and all.

I'll be interested what happens with Sirius when/if Stern does decide to leave. they seem to have put all of their eggs in the Stern basket...I know that most of they people who do have Sirius have decided to get it only b/c of Stern. This shuld be very interesting...in a ROFL, pointing, "told you so.." kind of way.
