Elmo doesn't even have a super hero alter ego.

This. Motherf*cking Super Grover!

Grover was bipolar. I read that in "Not All Were Sunny Days: A Behind-The-Scenes Look At Sesame Street".

jayhawk88: FirstNationalBastard: It's not really Elmo's fault.

It's also not really Elmo's fault because he's a puppet.

stevetherobot: I'd be surprised if Sesame Street either gets or needs federal funding. They must rake in a ton of money from merchandising.


Oh, they are very profitable. In fact, most PBS (and NPR) stations are rolling in dough. They just plead poverty because it gets their viewers to donate more tax-free cash

How the fark can people say he "won"? That's like having a debate about what color they sky is, the guy on the orange side just saying, "NO! ORANGE!" over and over, and then being like... well, orange sure seemed confident, even though hes been saying blue for the last 18+ months. Guess orange wins.

This one comment may have stood out more than others, but just about everything Romney said last night came across as him being an out of touch elitist prick if you were listening.

"We should grade schools so parents know where to send their kids."
Yes, Mitt, because all parents are so fortunate as to have the means to send their kids to the school of their choice. And if you can't get your kid in that top notch school? Well, too bad, shoulda had more money.

"We shouldn't allow a government panel to decide who gets medical treatment."
Right, instead, we should trust those running the insurance companies to make those decisions, because there's no way they would choose to disregard someone's best interests in favor of bigger profits. And if that happens, well too bad, shoulda had more money.

Fark Mitt Romney. He is an elitist, uncaring sack of shiat, and I challenge anyone to prove otherwise.

I think the mental midgets have, once again, missed the point.
PBS is a commercially viable product capable of supporting itself
and showing a profit on the bottom line. Why are they collecting
welfare from the feral gub'amint (aka taxpayers)? Oh, it's ONLY
.0012%! The amount of support isn't relevant, the fact they're
being supported at all is the issue. Don't worry tho - your food
stamp president will come to the rescue.

hdhale: kayanlau: Romney couldn't dent the deficit with the PBS cut. It is a mere 0.012% of budget.

DubyaHater: I'll be interested to see new polls on Friday. I understand that Romney looked very calm and collected, but I want to know if anyone fell for the lines of bullshiat oozing out of Mitt's mouth.
I want to see ads from th Obama camp saying, "Mitt Romney's plan for fiscal solvency is slashing funding for PBS and NPR. Does Mr. Romney really believe we can balance the budget by slashing less than 1% of spending?". They should show an image of a small child happily watching Big Bird, then the television screen mysteriously turning to static. Personally, I feel that would be a very powerful image.


Guys! Guys! Let's everybody take a deep breath. Killing Big Bird has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with balancing the budget. PBS is and has been for some time a favorite target of the proto-fascist right for being a socialist, communist, Marxist, Maoist, plot to rot the minds of children everywhere, spout slanted (pro-Democrat) news, and undermine everything that is good and right about Murkah.
 
2012-10-04 12:01:43 PM

Queue33: Have the Republicans considered the long term electoral damage that opposing PBS does?


Every attempt by the GOP to kill PBS has been stymied by the public. Bush put in charge a guy who blatantly hated public broadcasting and tried to force "moderation" and "balance" on PBS and NPR. He was run out of town on a rail. The people like PBS. The people will defend PBS.

Solty Dog: For all you getting all uppity about Romney's position, when was the last time you donated to PBS? We all the begging from local affiliates. But do you actually give?

Just something to think about.


i'm a sustainer of my local PBS station. i just renewed yesterday actually, because doing it during that beg period put me in a pool for a trip to the galapagos islands, and my GF has never been there. doubt i will win, but i already own plenty of tote bags.

Jim DeMint: "From 2003 to 2006, 'Sesame Street' made more than $211 million from toy and consumer product sales."

PolitiFact: "We got the 2009 990 tax form submitted by the Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit group that produces the show, and DeMint is correct. It shows Knell's salary at $806,990, with an additional $149,523 worth of other compensation. For the toy sales numbers, we have to go to the 2008 990 tax form. In a section on "other income," it reports "toys and consumer products" as bringing just over $211 million from 2003 through 2006 (nearly $53 million a year, on average)."

*Where* is the money to balance the budget?

In the three places all politicians fear to tread ; Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid, and the Defense Department. Not to mention the need to raise revenues, regardless of what Grover and his minions think. Until we come to grips with the entitlement programs we expect, change the income level for paying into Social Security and cut the bloated defense budget, we're pissing in the wind when it comes to cutting the deficit.So, basically , we're farked !

2012-10-04 12:08:39 PM
This is why Romney won't release his plan -- people like the idea of austerity, but not the specifics. This is also why I would have liked Obama to have used one of those two minute periods as follows:

Governor Romney, we find ourselves with an audience who want what's best for our country, but they need information. Right now I only have two minutes, so I have to ask myself, "What is the best way to inform them of the differences between our plans?" In normal circumstances the best way would be to list a few bullet points from my own plan. But, these aren't normal circumstances. I think a better use of time is a symbolic minute of silence, following this explanation. I raise a single issue, which you have so far ignored, and that is your silence.

As things stand, the American people have every reason to believe that either you don't have a plan, or you don't want them to know your plan. You need to address this issue, because they have a right to that information. Tell them specifically how you would change the tax code, and what departments, or programs, you would cut. In this minute you can think up a few specifics to fill your two minutes, but more importantly you need to fill the deafening silence that currently exists in this country. After the debate, you need to put your entire plan out in the open, on the Internet as I have, and allow the people to make an informed decision.

[Minute of silence]

[api.ning.com image 403x324]


That's not going to balance the budget. It will however leave us vulnerable and will likely cause us to have to spend even more money down the road if you cut too deep because we'll be at war.

No, entitlements have to be cut. The problem is no one wants to give up their honey pot, and so PBS becomes a target when it doesn't have to be.

Kyro: Farkin' PBS? Really? They run on like $20.


I think the point is the left-leaning content of PBS programming, not the cost. Get government out of the propaganda biz, in other words.

Kyro: Dynascape: With all that was said last night.... Im really thinking Romney might have blew his edge with the Anti-PBS stance.

Everyone says he "won", but that one comment seems to stand out over any policy statements, so who knows, right?

Agreed 100%. That was the only remark anyone actually remembers. Farkin' PBS? Really? They run on like $20.


Try $445 million. That's how much the federal gov't is allocating for PBS for the fiscal year 2013.

And no, I'm not for canning PBS funding. Just clarifying the amount that they receive in funding.

i used to be an elmo hater too, until i had a kid that fell in love with him. now he has really grown on me. everything he does is cute

sprout already syndicates sesame street, maybe they'll pick it up

My brother freaking loved Elmo growing up. My grandmother totally fed into his Elmo love, too, and got him all sorts of Elmo stuff and would watch Elmo with him, and would have him talk about Elmo whenever we went to visit her at work with all the other office ladies. Even now, I still have a strong affinity for Elmo (and can still sing along with the Elmo's World song, last I heard), and my brother is 16.

/Thankfully I never worked at Sesame Place to destroy that affinity...


La la la la... La la la la... Elmo's song
La la la la... La la la la... Elmo's song
He wrote the music
He wrote the words
That's Elmo's song...

I can answer this very easily, plainly, and clearly. The answer is that there is no money to balance the budget, and we are all economically farked. The struggle in DC anymore is not how to balance the budget. They all know it can't be done. The struggle is how to keep juggling shiat around to make it last long enough to collect their pensions and get them into off-shore accounts, and time it so the other party is in control when it all comes tumbling down.

It is like that old vaudeville act where the guy is spinning plates on sticks. There are far too many plates to keep spinning, there have been for years, and everyone knows that you can't keep plates spinning forever anyway. It is all going to come crashing down, so nobody is really truly trying to do anything to keep that from happening. They are just trying to stall and posture so that when the plates do all fall down they can come out of it without any cuts and can point the finger at the other guy. In the meantime, they all keep smiling at the audience as if everything is going to be great, the music keeps playing, and as long as you don't look too closely everything seems fantastic.
