There is one classic book that was too obscene for the conservatives so they banned it. The book was The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. It was placed on the banned list twice and has been twice removed. The first time it was banned in 1965 by the NAACP because it used the word nigger too many times, then in 1984 because a black alderman found the books language offensive. Not only do I think it is wrong to ban any type of literature but how can they say what is obscene and offensive? Another American classic that was banned was The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck once again it was for the vulgarity of the book.
The stifling effect of censorship is worse now since the Janet Jackson fiasco at Superbowl XXXVIII. The FCC was and still is doing a crack down on any and everything they find obscene. Howard Stern takes the spot light, with his “crude” humor and brash way of doing things. The FCC doesn’t like him very much. They fined him a record $495,000 for a “blumpkin” reference. The FCC can fine you for things they deem are obscene and vulgar. The only problem is he said this obscene reference over two years before they fined him which has never been done. All that will change on January 2006 when Howard moves to satellite radio.
Satellite radio is new and has only been on the market for about 5 years. It’s like cable T.V. for the radio and that is a good thing for Howard Stern or any Shock Jocks. It is good because the FCC can’t fine or censor any pay service because you (the buyer) want it. There are two different types of satellite radio though one is XM and the other is Sirius.

At the age of 30, Buckley declared, "let's face it: Unlike Vienna it seems altogether possible that did National Review not exist, no one would have invented it."

- Orange County 1960's: The conservative movement The conservative movement that arose in the Orange Country during the 60's had many different contradictory attitudes.

- “The term “Conservative” had been attached to the moderates by the Reformers because the moderates had branded them as radicals. This name hardly describes the movement aptly. Conservative Judaism, is the American version of the principles of positive historical Judaism. The conservatives accept the findings of modern scholarship that Judaism is the product of a long period of growth and evolution. However, this process did not result in broken or inconsistent lines of development; quite the contrary, the major currents of Judaism run consistently through the extensive literature of the Jewish people, created in successive ages.” (Rudavsky 338) Conservative Judaism is one of the larg...

- The 1960s and 1970s helped shape the conservative movement to grow in popularity and allowed conservatives to enjoy modern benefits such as economic prosperity and consumerism without conforming to liberal ideologies.

The grass roots mobilization started strong with the help of Orange County's middle-class men and women volunteers. The effort and hard work of these people along with economic support from businesses such as the National Review helped to spread conservative philosophy.... [tags: Political Science]

- Goldwater was the dream candidate of America in and around 1964. He offered a choice to move out of a capitalist system that most Americans at the time attributed the Depression to. After the Depression, Americans thought that the federal government had an obligation to protect them from those whom Franklin Roosevelt described as “malefactors of great wealth”, and wanted the government to regulate and control those financial interests. Goldwater noted that conservatives "believed the communist projection of man as a producing, consuming animal to be used and discarded was antithetical to all the Christian understandings which are the foundations upon which the Republic stands....

Terrestrial radio is the free radio you hear every day in your car or on your stereo. You don’t pay for it you just listen and enjoy but you don’t hear everything you would like to like a verse that may be too violent or sexual for radio (the FCC) or a funny joke you missed. Terrestrial radio is owned by two very big companies Clear Channel and Infinity Radio these two markets basically own everything you listen to. 95.5 wpgc fm is owned by Infinity and 99.5 wiht (hot) fm is owned by Clear Channel. These aren’t just business’ they are conglomerates. The radio is free because of all the commercials so you don’t get to hear music or talk or the news for a very long time in between.
Hopefully this conservative movement will end after G.W. Bush so we can all enjoy whatever we want without feeling guilty that it is vulgar and obscene.
