I accepted Cindy Graves’ invite to co-host Thursday’s edition of Politics, Business and Mayhem on WBOB 600 AM talk radio. Alexander Pantinakis, the show’s producer, was the host, and I have to say I always have fun with Cindy or Alex in the driver’s seat.
We talked a lot about gun control, especially with the politicization of the tragedy in Connecticut. Media and neoliberals once again seized a crisis in hopes of furthering a political agenda.
Did you know December 5 is the anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition? On Dec. 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, 13 years after the 18th amendment banning the manufacture, sale or transport of “intoxicating” liquors for drinking purposes was placed into effect.
Florida talk radio host Cindy Graves will do a special segment on the anniversary that many of us appreciate in substance (literally) even if we didn’t know this date was special. Graves hosts Politics, Business and Mayhem on WBOB 600 AM radio each weekday from 12 noon until 1 p.m.
Americans have learned more about the Prohibition era from pop culture than many of us ever learned in school.

Alex Pantinakis sat in for Cindy Graves, host of Politics, Business and Mayhem on WBOB AM 600 when I did a guest visit on November 21.
Despite the fact it was the day before turkeys look for the nearest escape route, news was breaking Right and Left. We chatted up the benefits to BP because of our engagement in Libya and we also talked about the 2008 declaration of war on conservatives by a leading Democrat blogger. Before we ended the visit, we really drilled down on the trampling of various amendments to the Constitution.
Cindy Graves, North Florida radio host and president of the Florida Federation of Republican Women (among other things), will shine a light on the pending ObamaCare ruling and last week's Supreme Court ruling on the FCC indecency lawsuit. Graves will discuss these and other issues of the day on Monday’s edition of ‘Politics, Business and Mayhem!’
Graves recently moved to a daily show from a weekly show.
Never let it be said that Herman Cain isn’t serious about the US presidency. He’s crisscrossed the United States to meet and greet the grassroots, and most who hear him speak come away impressed. Not a Beltway insider, Cain doesn’t just have to convince Americans on Main Street he’s our best bet. He’s going to have to persuade some Old Guard Republicans.
It appears the OGR might want to take Cain more seriously. The man Karl Rove recently referred to as the “talk radio guy in Atlanta” is rising in the polls.
Monday marked the twenty-second anniversary of the F.C.C.'s abolishment of the Fairness Doctrine, but today the potential for a return to government broadcast censorship is still alive and well. After a recent series of procedures in Congress two weeks ago, Democrats managed to keep the threat alive by killing an amendment seeking to prohibit Congress from funding either the Fairness Doctrine or its Trojan Horse –a series of regulations that have the same chilling effect on free speech.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi twice blocked a vote on an amendment protecting free speech for broadcasters. The Broadcaster Freedom Amendment proposed by congressmen Greg Walden (R-Ore.) and Mike Pence (R-Ind.) sought to prohibit Congress from funding the Fairness Doctrine and part of its Trojan Horse, broadcast localism regulations. When the Reagan administration abolished the Fairness Doctrine in 1987, it did so on the basis that it was unconstitutional and no longer served the public interest. If the FCC were to re-institute the Fairness Doctrine - or more likely its Trojan Horse - the result would be the destruction of Conservative and Christian talk radio.
Speaker Pelosi used special House rules to block the Walden-Pence Broadcaster Freedom Amendment from an up-or-down vote. According to Rep. Pence, “If [this amendment] is brought to the floor of this Congress, it will surely pass; because every time freedom gets an up-or-down vote in the People's House, freedom always wins.”
