This is terrible news. Little Taliban children may grow up not knowing how to count to three before blowing themselves up.

Why give money to a country that gives aid to our enemies?

SNL could make it into one of their running skits, similar to mr. Bill was in the 70s.

I got more interested in snarking in the comment section on Daily's article index about the 14 year old republican radio personality who says Obama is the reason why more and more children are becoming gay.

Ahhh, "Pakistani"... what a plethora of positive images that word summons up.

Seriously, can't we just pay India to remove that cess-pit of a country from the Earth?

I don't know. Exporting a show with good educational values and a positive social message seems like a good way to fight ignorance in a place where ignorance helps foster terrorism.

But, silly me, why would we be doing something that might actually help out both of our countries when, instead, we could be getting outraged at spending ~.00001% of our GDP on educating foreign kids.
 
2012-06-07 02:20:20 PM
Shirley, you jest.

Please, Mr CIA Guy with $Ms, can you tell me another story.
They need to find much better ways of paying offft the tribal/clerical/gang/war lords than some crappola about Sesame Street.

Maybe win a lottery, life insurance from some "relative" or hit jack at a casino. The old ways are best.

Well, one of the ways it works is that all foreign assistance, total, is about 1.5% of the budget, with humanitarian aid like this about 1/3 of that 1.5%.

Defense is 19%, medicare and social security are 43%. Complain about those, it makes a lot more sense.

I'm thinking there are not enough tv sets in Pakistan to reach 3 million children.
If there are, they are for watching pron.

2012-06-07 02:40:52 PM
This shows just how farking screwed up the government is. We don't have enough money to keep our own country in order and they're sending money to farking Pakistan for a farking kids TV show.
 
2012-06-07 02:56:17 PM
But now Pakistani kids won't think America does anything good.
 
2012-06-07 03:20:57 PM
What about the Patkistani remakes of American films?

Are they still gonna make 'Jihad Me at Hello?'

Funding shows to educate kids to eliminate the threat of future terrorists is cheaper than drone strike to kill future terrorists.
 
2012-06-07 03:35:54 PM
Ah well, they sure ran one hell of a Mr. Hooper's Store over there...
 
2012-06-07 03:46:11 PM
Take that Pakistan! Biatch about drone strikes and we cancel Sesame Street.
 
2012-06-07 03:46:35 PM
Well there are some who claim that shows like Captain Kangaroo and Sesame street are a form of mind control employed by the CIA.. perhaps there is some truth to that.

They're the ones who try to kill you, each day

As someone who worked closely with USAID in the developing world, let me give you the secret:

1) USAID is our way of bribing countries to like us.
2) Massive amounts of grant money are stolen by the locals.
3) Projects are largely unsuccessful because there is little real supervision or follow through.

Now, I don't think we should cut aid money. We have the opportunity and ability to do some real good. But we're not doing a whole lot right now and there needs to be a serious re-evaluation of how USAID operates before we can.

Making people happy makes them less likely to try and kill you.

Or more likely, letting parents get some peace and quiet for half an hour makes them less likely to try an kill you.

PanicMan: Making people happy makes them less likely to try and kill you.


So we shouldn't be policing the world but we should be sucking up and sending them money so they leave us alone?
