Why read the paper?

Southwest Missouri's infamous cowboy Congressman - Billy Long, made the statement the other day that he was upset because Obama was keeping Congress in the dark on the Libia matter and stated "all I know about it is what I read in the paper".

So today's Newsleader - Springfields only newpaper - has an article about our good ole congressman Billy Long meeting with Ham Radio operators, Emergnecy Management and Fire personnel about the upcoming house bill 'THAT BILLY COSPONSORED'.

This bill would sell off radio frequencies the Hams use. And I might add, use to a good purpose during disasters and emergencies.

One of the comments in the article was by JKROWHAMMEER and sums it up:
9:43 AM on March 24, 2011
Long said earlier he wasn't aware of the provision when he agreed to co-sponsor the bill...... So he co-sponsored a bill but didn't know what was in it. That is just wrong!!

The Nixa Fire Chief was happy that Long listened to everyones comments during the meeting "closed to the press".

What everyone failed to realize is the other article in today's Newsleader


"But to offset the cost of setting aside those frequencies for public safety, the bill also instructs the government to sell for commercial use the 420-440 MHz frequency, which amateur radio operators currently use.:

So Ole Roy supports the bill, and Billy is told to Support the Bill...........

WAKE UP HAM OPERATORS ---- the bill is going to be passed and you will lose those freqs.....

Another example of Billy doing what Roy said to do.
