"Freedom of Speech" HAS limitations. For one thing, there's accountability. If I call you a f!@#ing jerk (Freedom of Speech), I should expect a response (punch in the mouth), right? Same principle with Imus. He calls a college,women's basketball team "nappy-headed 'ho's," and his employer tells HIM to accept a two-week suspension for using the public''s airwaves to promote hate talk. By the way, IS Imus getting paid for the two week's he's being told to take as a "cooling-off period?" If so,
he's getting a two-week vacation, then. We're supposed to feel sorry for HIM?
Just like Jeter must be held accountable for his unnecessary, phony, showboating dives.

FIRE that Imus creep! That racist jerk just doesn't get it, does he?

Thank God MSNBC has stopped carrying that pin-headed looser and thank god that the following sponsors have STOPPED supporting his show: American Express Co., Staples Inc., Procter & Gamble Co., and General Motors. BOYCOTT ANY SPONSOR THAT SUPPORTS IMUS OR HIS TRASH!!!

NEXT we need to get the message to Westwood One and WFAN-AM in New York City of the Columbia Broadcasting Company (CBS). FIRE IMUS! FIRE IMUS! FIRE IMUS!

All guests, including presidential candidates should BOYCOTT his show. What IMUS DID IS REPREHENSIBLE!

I feel sorry that it will hurt the kids at the Imus Ranch in Ribera, New Mexico, but he has gone too far. He should have thought about his wife and kids before he opened his big FAT mouth!

Really it is sad that it will hurt what he is doing for those kids, but what Imus did was wrong. IMUS was the one who spoiled it for those kids!

SHAME ON YOU IMUS!!!

Oh! I just found this bit on Wikipedia:

"Don Imus is one of the few persons permitted a license to carry a concealed handgun for his protection in New York City. This license was issued by the New York City Police Department."

Dear Mayor Bloomberg, SUSPEND this concealed handgun permit! A BIG MOUTH jerk like this is too unstable to have a concealed weapon permit!

REVOKE! REVOKE! REVOKE!

They were both wrong. Now that action has been taken against Imus, All the rap crap on MTV should also be looked at. I guess beacuse it is only offense towards white people nothing will be done.
