jjorsett: It's always fascinating that not wanting to spend government on something means you must be against it. I don't want government paying to hand out free chocolate-dipped macadamia nuts, so I must be against either chocolate, macadamia nuts, or both.


Go suck a dick somewhere else. Your bullshiat is stale. It's farking PBS. If you're going to spit on Mr. Rogers legacy, then you can go fark your godamn self in the farking dickhole with a farking rusty nail file. I'm not going to be polite about it, I'm not going engage in a dialog, you can fark the fark right the fark off and fark yourself.

B.L.Z. Bub: If government tax money comprises such a small portion of funding of public television and public radio, as leftists keep insisting, if it's true that they mostly live off private donations, then why all the howls and cries of Armageddon and the end of the arts as we know it whenever the subject of cutting government funding is even broached?


Because by and large public television barely skates by. Cutting the funding will produce a drop in services, quality, etc, at some point. Especially given the microscopic amount of cash PBS consumes compared to defense contracts, etc.

Plus it educates and exposes people to programs which won't rot their brains quite as severely as 'honey boo boo redneck diabeetus fetus' or 'fake reallity show 302394 with real tits and a kung fu herpes'.

Not to mention the children's programming; not everyone can afford the '300 channels' package for all the 'kids' TV shows now. And some of us were raised Mr. Rogers, Sesame Street, and similar shows, so we know that it doesn't take a billion dollar network to write good childrens programming.

Seriously, PBS annual funding is, what, 5 minutes of Iraq/Iran/Afghanistan/wherearewethisweek?
