    They will do everything they can think of to pressure Americans into letting them have their way!

    I just edited the title of this thread. My original title was inaccurate.

    WAIT A MINUTE....Liberals SILENCING VOICES they don't like....what about divergent opinions, tolerance, open dialogue? Who would have thunk it?

    Unless what one says is consistent with liberal DOGMA, it is determined to be HATE SPEECH....

    I wonder why the First Amendment only applies to their opinions.....

    How about broadcasting for the estimated 11,991,593 innocent gun owners across the USA that did nothing at all to hurt anyone?

    Title is misleading. Murdoch did not ask Fox. Murdoch owns Fox. It was a Mass. Senator that asked Murdoch, and consequently Fox, not to carry the race. Murdoch isn't the baddy.

    Murphy is a D from CT and is totally absorbed with his own power IMHO.

    The NASCAR race today was changed in title from NRA 500 to Texas 500. Apparently some of the drivers were asked not to be interviewed in front of the NRA signs.

    I guess the sponsers didn't want to be associated with those evil NRA gun lovers!

    Well now if that don't fry your pie. It would be interesting to know which drivers were so inclined. I did notice that Kyle didn't lift up his pistols.

    Hey guys. How about we at least get the story straight. Rupert Murdoch IS Fox. He was asked by some knee jerking, publicity seeking Senator from Connecticut not to broadcast the race. If not for Murdoch, our news would come solely from CNN and MSNBC. Don't smear Murdoch, he didn't have a dog in this fight until numbie from Conn. shot off his mouth. Is Murphy up for election in 2014? That is the sort of question to be asking.

    The NRA logo was painted in the grass. I believe the broadcasters did their best not to mention the NRA. It slipped out a few times though. It did seem like a concerted effort to avoid it.

    Maybe someone should ask Richard Childress, owner of RCR Racing (and NRA board member)what he thinks of this.

    It's all lost. Pukes are so loud and confrontational every second of the day, and the Lamestream Media is completely with their program.

    Conservatives are generally quiet folks who just want to live a normal life and be left alone, without someone telling them what to do constantly.

    It won't get any better until it gets worse first.

    sam.browne and cyduster,

    Thank you for pointing the misleading information I posted! The title of my thread was not accurate. My apologies!

    I am obviously not a NASCAR fan like my wife. She knows who all the drivers are and which tracks they are going to be at. I watch it only on occasion. She mentioned yesterday that normally the sponsor's name is used in the title of the race, except when it is a big race. Yesterday I noticed that the FOX information banner read Texas 500 instead of NRA 500. Even though they had not officially changed the name, as such, it gave me the appearance they had.

    The main point I was trying to make was that the liberal media has bombarded everyone with their views, to the point of making NRA an association sponsors want to distance themselves from. Based on the changes made at yesterdays race, it seems that Fox and NASCAR were intimidated by the negative publicity towards NRA. NASCAR's comment that they would have to pay more attention to who the sponsors are, suggests they are not above folding under pressure.

    JMHO,

    Steve

    Murphy shoud be weighing Sandy Hook took place in a public building, while Cheshire Home invasion took place at someone's private home. Both atrocities took place in CT. What a sh1**y place to live and everyone would bawlk at the taxes everyone pays. Trying to leave everyone defenseless, to make all of us victims in hope that then we'd totally understand? No way is that right. What?.. for the next atrocity we are supposed to call the UN and wait for help to come?

    Nascar has nothing to do with Sandy Hook and neither does NRA.

    Since being a sponsor of the race, NRA should be getting their money back for having been slighted by the lack of exposure during the broadcast!

    I second them getting their money back! NASCAR has been too big for their britches for a long while. Many empty seats. Hopefully more on the way. Bump them. Jake
