It takes some people long enough to figure it out, huh?

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Stern has always been a libertarian, perhaps with some Republican leaning. He kind of got ticked off at the GOP in 2005 or so after the socons gave him heat for his raunchy schtick but he is no lefty.

The big danger here is if he starts towing the big-L Libertarian Party line. They are the Dems' ace in the hole. Stern flirted with running for New York gov about 20 years ago with their backing but dropped out.

Technically, they are still separate services, for technological and financial reasons, even though both are owned by the same company. Most channels are on both, but a few premium ones are only available on one or the other (Stern being one of them) and require a premium subscription to access from the other provider.

Merger approved 2008. One management. Two technical satellite and device systems. Programming is nearly down to just one list of programs.

How would I know? Continuous subscriber to first Sirius since 2004, then to XM since 2006.

I use XM for music and business/political news.

Even though it is currently dated Feb 21, 2014 as you note, I think that it may be a "re-print" or something, there is a clue as to the age of it in the description of the FCC commission:

Quote
The FCC commission is a five-member panel made up of three Republicans and two Democrats. The Democrats include Jonathan Adelstein and Michael Copps. The Republicans include FCC Chairman Kevin Martin, Robert McDowell and Deborah Taylor Tate. Tate had been the swing vote on the proposed merger and on July 24 The Wall Street Journal reported she would vote in favor of the merger.

Martin was FCC Chairman from March 2005 to January 2009.  (The 3 Rs and 2 Ds is also an indication of an R administration.)

Several sites posted this as if it were current. Here is an original article to settle it.

Good job!

Less than a dozen posts and the truth is verified!

It would be interesting based upon 'conditions' today, what he'd add or subtract from that rant.

A good journalist would get on that pronto!   :whistle:
