You are about to embark upon the Great Merger Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the financial and radio world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of radio free of commercials and FCC regulations march with you. In company with our brave listeners on other fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the terrestrial radio war machine, the elimination of NAB tyranny over the oppressed peoples of satellite radio, and freedom to yourselves in a free radio world.
Your task will not be an easy one. The NAB, FCC, and DOJ are well trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. The Axis will fight savagely...but this is the year 2008! Much has happened since Tesla, Marconi, and Alexanderson discovered the breakthrough that allowed Fessenden to transmit the human voice across a long distance in 1906. The satellite listeners have inflicted upon the Axis great defeats, in online forums, through shareholder votes, and letters written to the FCC. Our on-line offensive has seriously reduced their strength to wage war on the ground. Our satellite radio believers have given us an overwhelming superiority in intelligence and preparedness for war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting believers. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory!
I have full confidence in shareholder's courage, devotion to satellite radio and skill in defeating the dark side of the Axis. We will accept nothing less than full merger. Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Mel Karmizin, Howard Stern, and all those at Siriusbuzz upon this great and noble undertaking. Always remember the sacrifices of the D-Day invasion and the many soldiers who followed. These men made it possible for us to have freedoms we enjoy today.
