    I'll be fine if Mitt shuts down PBS funding. Disney called my agent last night and offered me a job at their theme parks if the PBS gig goes TU. Besides, I still have a ton of royalties rolling in from all the Big Bird dolls and stuffed toys.

    Bert and Ernie are still voting Obama...they are still pissed about the gay marriage deal.

    The frog is a die hard Obama supporter. Obama has the green vote locked up.

    Oscar says he supports Obama but can't get a photo ID because he doesn't have a real address (homeless--lives in a trash can ya know...) so he will be turned away at the polls. So we don't have to sweat that one.

    That is all...:supergrin:

    :rofl:

    Go Big Bird!



    I will say that as much as I hate 95% of PBS programs and 100% of PBS funding, the quality difference in documentaries on PBS vs. Hist/Disc/Whatever is night and day. It's the one thing I'll miss. :(

    Big Bird.....You could be Secretary of State for Mitt! That other old bird Hillary is molting and doing nothing to intimidate the Middle East. You would scare the hell out of those sand turds!

    Yarp. I watch quite a bit of PBS, just not the news shows. Or the British programming.

    I'm honestly sick of the grandstanding some politicians are doing regarding cutting PBS funding.

    Yes, when we need to make cuts I think everyone should tighten their belts (and the issue of the federal spending to support it is questionable), but PBS funding is hardly a drop in the bucket of federal spending and they aren't exactly spending like drunken rock stars.

    But everyone spends inordinate time talking about PBS instead of places where the real effort goes. Ask yourself why.

    I never even knew PBS was a "problem" until Mittens brought it up last night.

    I personally don't think that the federal government should be in the TV business. However, that is the LAST thing that needs to be worried about...

    PBS funding is so insignificant it frankly doesn't deserve to be discussed in a debate. There MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH more expensive things that need cut which I'd like to hear discussed.

    The beef with PBS is about money, as others have already noted. The beef with PBS is that the government can't stand the liberal messages being produced and aired by the CTW/Sesame Street.

    If you can't beat'em ... enjoin 'em.

    What makes everyone think that if PBS loses funding from .gov it will go tu? They beg for money 4 times a year despite .gov funding. They will just get rich patronage like in the olden days. It was cool when we could afford it but we can't anymore. Looks like soros and buffet will have a recipient for the philanthropy.

    Half a billion dollars this year, half a billion dollars next year, pretty soon you're talking about real money.

    I don't think the founding fathers envisioned the Corporation for Propaganda Broadcasting when they authored the first amendment.

    It's amazing what some people don't know.:faint:

    He could bring in Donald Trump, as presumptive FCC chairman, who could then say: "You're fired!"

    The problem is that when (PBS) Public Broadcasting System takes government funding it turns into (GPS) Government Broadcasting System. I have watched over the years as the Federal government has inserted more and more propaganda into it's programming. It has even inserted 'suggestions' for our youth into Sesame Street.

    I have always said, cut their government funding and make them truly reliant on public sector money. (Goes double for NPR)

    Is it government propaganda or leftist singing the praises of the left and their ideas? They aren't saying anything new.
