Lando Lincoln: authorizeduser: WCMUWCMU is based out of Flint, MI? That's a pretty heavily-populated region of the country.
HeadLever: Keizer_Ghidorah: Killing education, however, is NOT how you handle ANYTHING.So now cutting out the fluff spending to NPR/PBS is going to end up KILLING education? Methinks that you may be overestimating the impact of PBS on education and the impact that federal funding has on PBS.
DreamyAltarBoy: Keizer_Ghidorah:... America's not the policeman of the world, nor the guard dog of Israel.I'm not so sure we're the guard dog anymore, lately it seems Israel is an angry pitbull and we've been having trouble holding the leash. It only stays in the yard because we keep feeding it.Although it's more likely I've been hearing the rhetoric for too long.
swinger833: I've heard so many people suggest drug testing for welfare recipients. Why isn't this something I'm hearing on a national level? I've tried to see the negative and I can't. Wouldn't that be a better place to bring an ax than PBS? Its not like politicians would lose them as a voting or tax base, people who actually need it (and still those who don't) would still get it, and kids of parents who are on drugs would be removed from bad situations. I'm almost hoping I'm missing something because otherwise I'm just going to be even more annoyed with government.
