What is with the fairness act Obama tried passing in 2005?

So, I heard of this plan he's tried to pass, where radio stations all the public things like that would have to be liberal. I'm not a "republican" and i'm definately not a "democrat" i'm undecided i'm just wondering if you disagree or think this is a little too dramatic that he's trying to do a socialist action by controlling radio stations etc. Thankyou....

Hi, I'm Stephen Yoo and this is my first speech on the proposition side, on the motion that parents should not buy war toys for children. I'd like to start by explaining exactly what a war toy is. From the Swedish Toy Council, "War toys are playthings which are used to solve conflicts, gain power, or win through the use of violence and imagination. Their aim is to destroy and kill."
