There once was a radio station slot that was dull,
Too many youngsters were cursing on the air.
The FCC dug the Vandy college campus station null.
Until a community volunteer named Gull
Produced a show named for a bird of the Sea,
That went on to become one that lives
In the WRVU radio hall of fame in infamy.
“Seagulls Over Nashville” was his name.
Conservative and down-home religious was his bent,
When not rocking-out judiciously on the air.

Now on sea-video for the first time,
It is another of his claims to fame,
Since the institution sold its soul and license to NPR
Into shame and meetings about it notwithstanding,
Turning talent out with a boot to the ass;
Faustian caring not about youthful human creativity,
Nor forming terrestrial trusts into perpetuity.
The Gull often squawks, “Not Urgent”
So that we do not take it seriously.

The Rutherford Institute: The Drone-ification of America.

Ever since I came to hear their Public Service Announcements on WRVU FM, The Rutherford Institute and John Whitehead’s truthfully frank Constitutional commentaries have hit me “where I live”.  While a DJ there, I sent for his free information packet and received the great “Pocket Constitution” of the U.S. along with a poster depicting the  U.S. Bill Of Rights and other historical personal freedom 411, and I urge you to do the same.  This is basic stuff that my generation learned in our high school Social Studies classes – I still have the text books!

IMHO, too many people, especially “Generation Y” , are totally clueless about the Bill of Rights and Constitution as it was intended to be applied by the founders of the “U.S.A.”, and that makes us all more vulnerable to erosion in personal liberties that are being considered and indeed applied behind closed doors as we “speak”. Soon our own “government” will use Orwellian tactics like drone spying on “we the people” without hesitation and find some nonsensical political double-speak rationalization to try and justify it.

Please read the above linked article and others at the Institute’s website.  What do you think about all of this?  If you are like I am, we need to continue to make our voices heard because humans are not robots; people make laws and laws should have human flexibilities built-in lest we and future generations fall victim to increasing unfeeling non-empathatic robotization of our societies and “leaders”.  Speaking of leaders, I agree with what he says about President Obama and the war machine.  It seems that these guys get in there and cannot resist the temptation become hawks these days, even if they promised otherwise during their campaign.

This show is from February, 2008.  Listen & enjoy.
