    who cares?
    they're words.
    i'm tired of everyone going all crazy when someone says anything.
    i'm too grown up to get mad everytime someone says something relatively insulting.
    now if he beat the poop out of a black guy okay.
    but he just took a cheap shot, if even, like every black comic does describing white people, carlos mencia does about everyone, and so on.
    me and my friends say everything is g*y, does that mean i hate g*y people? it's time for us to take the bug out of our jiggly butt and not take ourselves so seriously.
    i think we'd live longer.


    and imus is not inciting hate, just like comedians aren't, no one listens to imus and wants to believe and act like that wrinkily prick.
    unlike talking political heads, who people follow whole heartedly. and they get away with all kinds of assbackwards discrimanating talk.
    I guess there are "doers" and "watchers" in this world. If taking action and speaking out against what I feel is wrong makes me less of a grown up, well, then you might as well send me some Pampers because I am not going to stop.

    BTW saying everything is "g*y" is just foolish. I laugh my jiggly butt off when I hear people talk like that. Sounds so intelligent.
    So what are you doing?
    Complaining ain't doing.
    I already wrote a letter and sent it to various places. Thank you very much.
    Well that is something.
    I stand corrected.
    So who do you send a letter like that to?
    I sent it to WABC/Citadel Broadcasting Corp, RFD-TV as well as a few congress people here in Wisconsin. I might send it to DC but I am still looking for the right person.

    that's gay
    .
    if anything you just wasted your time in my opinion, look at what all the uproar did last time, it got imus a new huge contract at a different station.
    it's like i said before, lighten up.
    his show is mostly a comedy show filled with sarcasm on all topics.
    if it's something you dont listen too, even more a reason not to bother.
    you are already doing your part by not supporting him.
    if other people chose to listen, who are you to tell them they can't?
    you do what you do, and they do what they do?
    it's called individual rights remember?
    i'm not saying you cant have an opinion, i'm just saying, getting all worked up is not worth it for every stupid little thing, like black people get harrassed by cops.

    Re: Don Imus Opens His Mouth Again

    Once again, Don Imus deserves everything that happens to him at this point.
    You don't spend something like 30+ years in radio and do stuff like this.
    I have a friend who works in radio and he would be fired in a heartbeat if he said stuff like that over the air.

    would your friend go on to sign with another radio station for 10million dollars?
    imus has been doing this for 30 years, that's why he has.
    same as stern, opie and anthony, why richard prior was popular, carlos mencia, and on and on.
    they are what they are, listen or don't.
    that easy.

    Luckily I don't since I don't enjoy horrible radio.
    Imus can say what he wants, but to think everybody should just ignore it is silly, considering he was recently fired for this stuff.
    Prior did his comedy as a social satire, Imus is just an idiot, if only people could get people like Mencia off the air.
    Carlos Mencia joke template "Insult race or gender or disability, and if you don't find that funny you're an idiot!"
    Don't lump a guy like Prior into a group of trash like Imus and Mencia.

    whatever. bottom line is he's been doing it for 30 years.
    he just got a new huge contract, so obviously he's been doing something right.
    and i'm sure it's not becuz of the huge skinhead following he has.
    people start pulling there hair out and start screaming for people to be off the air at every little thing.
    and this is little.
    you can split hairs and say this is this, or that is that, but in the end does it change how you feel about one thing?
    if you really think imus listeners are gonna hear this statement and start believing the same things then by all means chase him off the air.
    but then you are gonna be chasing everyone off the air for one thing or another.
    we have minds, we have critical thinking skills.
    lets use them as opposed to not letting anything remotely offensive get near our ears.
    take in, if you dont like, spit out.

    Obvouisly he has a huge following. Love him or hate him, many people here must be tuning into him to listen to what he has to say, based on several replies posted here.

    Unless of course, they are formulating their opinions on a couple of things he's said over the last 30 years.
