Fark_Guy_Rob: Guys are making 300k a year to move their hands inside a puppet.
notmtwain: This story has no legs.
Mrtraveler01: BullBearMS: They stopped voting for the corrupt political parties as the first step.A large group did yes. Because they found a more viable third option.
ZeroCorpse: gimmegimme: thamike: Holy balls, this is stupid.No, no. I think that BullBear and ZeroCorpse are making good points. Think about the 2000 election. We would be in the EXACT SAME PLACE had Kerry won the Supreme Court Election. Right? It doesn't matter who sits in the chair.I think you're working under the premise that we have any control over who becomes President. We don't. Kerry "lost" because Kerry was never supposed to be in the White House. He was selected as the special guest co-star for the election reality show. Bush was the guy They wanted, and so Bush was put back in place... And it's not as if it matters, because he was as much a puppet as anyone else.The agenda that came about under Bush was trickled down from people far more powerful than him. If Kerry had been selected by Them, then the agenda would have been similar but with a different form of delivery to make it palatable to the other half of society.
BullBearMS: ZeroCorpse: This is a plutocracyI agree wholeheartedly.ZeroCorpse: minor, exceptionally stupid differences in personal philosophyThe rule of law is hardly a minor philosophy.Indefinite detention in military prisons without a trial until the end of the "war on terror" is well worth speaking out against.
jjorsett: This is pretty ironic, considering that Big Bird is one of the 1%.
LouDobbsAwaaaay: I see about five different Romney shills going for the "hand up ass" joke. Marching orders must have been sent down from Fox News already.
Nutsac_Jim: vpb: [blogs.denverpost.com image 495x359] It certainly symbolizes what he thinks about education and spending money to help the non-wealthy.I wonder if sesame street can just sell their shows on the regular airwaves? It seem like thefeds simply pay for sesame street and then some other guy gets to collect all the big bird animal sales.
gimmegimme: BSABSVR is what you're advocating.
legion_of_doo: Romney might kill Sesame Street, but Obama already killed NASA.
Whodat: If PBS can't live of the licensing of the Sesame Street characters etc. they have horrible business sense. BTW, Caroll Spinney makes about $314000 a year. Big Bird is very close to being a "1%er".
