Air America Radio goes SILENT today – YOU LOSE.

Posted on

Air America Radio will have an extended moment of silence today. In other words, it will be permanently go OFF Air. It will no longer bring it’s listeners/supporters the alternative progressive news that they are accustomed to receiving since its debut in 2004.

After years of financial struggles and multiple owners, the radio station has concluded that it can not maintain its current financial status and is filing for bankruptcy. Having opened its doors in the RED, surviving the changing mediascape, in addition to an unprecedented economic downturn, the radio station was at best – a long shot.

Having turned to the radio station for its fresh presentation of the politics, I was shocked to learn of its fate. Although a neophyte, Air America Radio, seemed a fixture in our daily lives, as fixed as CNN or NPR. It was an alternative option providing us with some of the progressive voices we know best.

Not everyone thought so

I began to ask myself a question. How come all the hoopla because one company did not survive. In our capitalistic society it’s survival of the fittest. Air America Radio’s is just another company that didn’t make it.

There is more here than meets the eye:

What have we truly lost? What happens to freedom of choice when there is no choice? Air America is another casualty in a long line of casualties caused by the greed that has led to a recession worse than the Great Depression. Moreover, besides our loss of choice, it represents the slow ebb of life from our traditional media sources. Finally, it yet again, brings us square in the face with the reality of our current state of affairs. Air America radio is another good man down.

When the economic downturn reaches your door – you notice and you can ignore it. When it smacks you in the face – let’s just say you have to work a lot harder to ignore it.

I just tell it like it T-I-Tiiz!

Have a moment of silence for Air America Radio. It was good while it lasted.

Man Loses Job? So WHAT?

Today a Yahoo Article (http://finance.yahoo.com/career-work/article/107145/From-Ordering-Steak-and-Lobster-to-Serving-It;_ylt=Ag.o_BODnPiyu6aA27.gQsyCfNdF) talked about a guy who went from 200,00 to 25,000. I’ve been a student and single parent for years making and surviving on less than that. Welcome to my world. We really live on more than we need to. Hopefully, this guy gets back to a place where he’s accustom but, I don’t feel so bad that he’s had to visit a place where many of us have had to survive for years. He even admitted to thinking that unemployed people were “lazy” now he knows that’s not always the case. This is a hard lesson to learn. Maybe a few more people need to lose their jobs (although I don’t wish it on anyone).

I’m just tellin’ it like it T-I-Tiz!!!

CANDY SPELLING BROKE & losing her home????

Candy Spelling

Candy Spelling

If I lost my home the results would be devastating. But, when celebrities lose their homes let’s just say…they downsize. Reported by Tmz.com, Candy spelling can no longer afford her over-the top-mansion. How will she ever get by? Slumming of course! She’ll sell her 150 million dollar home and make due with a $47 million dollar condo. Don’t believe it? read the article.

These people are crazy!!! I hope she doesn’t spend all her money in one place and be in the same boat as Ed McMahon!!! I’m sure she worked really hard for that money right? –that’s another story. Now why can’t she share some of the money with her daughter again? What was Aaron thinking that she’d be fair or was it really his intention to cut his daughter OFF!!? That’s just wrong.

I’m just tellin’ it like T-I-Tiz!!!!
