It's something that the democrats are trying to push through to get talk radio off the air. They're afraid of free speech. You know, that old chestnut. By the way I haven't listened to talk radio in years. But I like knowing that it's still there.

against. being able to speak out against any politician is exactly what the first admendment is all about. however, it will probably never pass. they tried last year with a dem congress and it went down in flames. plus, in this day of information it is not neeeded. some dems are trying to push it to prevent what happened in 1994 from ever happening again. but i dont see it passing. not enough support in congress. when they tried to bring it back last year it only got 100 and some votes

but, it is no secret why some democrats do want to silent talk radio. sure, some of the people on talk radio can be blowhards and arrogant at times but after the failure of air america, certain folks in congress dont like opposition. both the left and the right have used it in the past to intimidate the opposition

today, in the information age, we have our own fairness doctrine. the radio dial, the TV channels, newspapers, the internet. i dont need congress telling me whats "fair." Plus, who decides whats "fair?" the fairness doctrine is another example of the growing power of congress and how it sees itself above any critisism.

it is no secret why the democratic leadership wants this bill. they know what the end results would be. and they seem to think they are above any kind of scrutiny. talk radio is a free market enterprise. when people get tired of it, it will go. its another example of democratic opposition to free markets, esp when they dont get the results they want.

when the fairness doctrine was first established, there was only like one radio staion for miles in any area. doesnt apply today. and i get a little tight when a government bureaucrat tries to determine whats fair speech and whats not.

the history of the fairness doctrine is interesting. both republicans and democrats have used it in the past. i want no further government power over anything

    • Perhaps you are associating peanut butter with sweet things, like cookies or peanut butter cups.   But peanuts aren't sweet and can work in savory things as well.   Asian food seems to do that with peanuts a lot, just as an example.   African food also. 
    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.
    • nw wisconee private marsh
    • Sorry, I thought the model was listed on the title of my question.  Anyway, Garmin 53dv EchoMap.  This one has downview, but is chirpless.  Seems like nice unit, tough.  Just wondered about those 2 wires.  Thanks.
