And so is "tickle me" Elmo for that matter...

Isn't it time they carried the load themselves?

They could pay for the entire PBS budget a hundred times over.

The CEO of the Sesame Workshop is part of the 1 %. President and CEO Gary Knell makes $956,513 a year.

I likedjon stewart's remark about this. "give us back the 800 billion for the iraqwar and we will give up big bird".

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

he should tell that to Biden too then right? You know.... since Biden said Iraq had WMD's... was a threat to us ...and also voted for the war in iraq. Also as a senator Obama voted with the republicans to fund that war even though he said he opposed it.

I like John Stewart.... but his statement there makes no sense.

Bush didn't do all that bullshit on his own... he had a corrupt congress helping him along the way.

All it would have taken was an impeachment.... i don't remember Biden and Obama joining Dennis Kucinich with his articles for impeachment of Bush for war crimes.

But yes we could easily fund PBS and many other awesome programs if THEY would just end the wars.

[-] 1 points by NVPHIL (664) 1 year ago

You have a point about the vote. It's not like obama is showing any urgency about ending the wars we are in. Considering a lot of the people against PBS don't mind spending billions on our "security" the comment makes perfect sense. Maybe I'm reading too much into it but it shows the differnt priorities between progressives and conseratives. Now if we could get an actual progressive in the white house.

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

No... it shows that they talk differently.

It says nothing about their alleged priorities or their actions.

Here's a prime example. Republicans back indefinite detention laws and vote for them. Obama says he's against indefinite detention laws but not only did he sign them into law but he also appealed to continue the authority of indefinite detention after a judge filed an injunction against it.

Talk is cheap. I need to see action. Voting records hold 100% more truth than what they say.

Military spending is still up.

[-] -1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Military spending is DOWN!!!

And the action most important on indef det, is that this Pres has NEVER used the authority! Only one Pres has.

And this Pres has eliminated more than half the leftover cases from the repub Pres that did use it.

We must protest against it but also recognize progress (NOT USING THE AuTHORITY!!! HELLO) when it occurs.

If you aretruly againstthese critical issues you will recognize the roots are in the fear/war mongering that one party continues and the other does not!

I believe above all that we MUST change our war footing. We MUST stop thefear mongering.

1ST we must end the scare tactics and one party started it, continues it, & believes it benefits their party to maintain it.

We can change nothing until we end the fear/war mongering!! We can best do that by voting out the politicians who spew it!

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

Military spending is nearly 60% of Federal Discretionary Spending this year. Google it.

Bradley Manning is a prime example of it's use against an America. And if you think GTMO has been closed you should Google it. Indefinite detention still happening to this day.

Had no appeal been filed and won... the Congress would have been forced to reform the laws. So this means you can no longer just blame Congress for indefinite detention laws.

Why would the government claim they need to provisions if they're not using it? Think.

Tell the democrats and republicans to stop using fear tactics to start wars. Iran is not a threat.

George Bush and Joe Biden both told us that Iraq's WMDs were a threat to the US. They were both lying and they both voted to invade Iraq.

[-] -1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

To equate Bush and Biden is clearly anti dem partisanship.

Military spending IS 60%, but this Pres has cut almost $100B. And will cut more. You're repubs would never do that!

Bradley Manning is not part of the indef det auth. He broke a military law. I support his release but it ain't the same as the hundreds Bush captured. Please.

Gitmo ain't closed (YOUR repubs obstructed Dems efforts) but Pres Obama has eliminated more than half the cases Bush leftover.

Fear mongering is the unique purvue of your repubs. Always has been. dems have thus far successfully resisted the right wing fear mongering pressure to invade Iran.

Protest drone bombings, rights violations, war mongering. vote out war mongering republicans!!!! Elect peace loving progressives.

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

You are being foolish and blind to facts

Biden was saying there was WMD's in Iraq since the 90's. He voted to invade Iraq and voted to fund every dollar spent there. Obama voted for every NDAA while he was in the Senate under the Bush admin. These are facts. Their talk is different than their walk... voting records prove that to be true.

Not equating them either... I'm just pointing out the areas where their voting records are identical.

Under military law Manning was supposed to get a trial within 120 days. How many years ago was he detained? Why is Obama not giving him a pardon? Afterall Manning exposed a ton of fraud and murder under the Bush admin.

[-] -1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

WMD's. Please 1 senator compared to repubs massive effort to exploit the 9/11 attacks by scaring the shit out of the entire world. No comparison. That is a record!

The fear mongering, war mongering has been used extensively only by Repubs to perpetrate 2 oil wars. to violateout rights. And the repubs are continuing. The dems succeeded at resisting the right wing war mongers pressure to invadeIran.

You ignore these facts because you are an anti dem partisan.

Repubs created these problems, They continue the fear mogering and if we want to end these nightmares we more vote fear mongering, war mongering repubs out of office.

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

At no point in time have I denied that republicans are warmongers. You need to stop replying like I have said they are not..

The government is doing military operations in the straight of Hormuz and HR 4310 prepares for war in Iran and contains regime change policies. I absolutely guarantee that Obama will sign this legislation after it passes in the Senate. We are essentially surrounding Iran right now and are fucking up their economy with sanctions over a bullshit allegation of "WMD"

If you want to believe the WMD talk about iran... that's up to you. It's a lie being played out by both sides. We're still early into the lie. Now the CIA is saying Iran wants to attack the internet.

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

But we haven't invaded right? And your repubs have made a massive effort to pressure for an invasion. Right.

So the fact that you ignore these facts reflects your partisanship and constitutes your failureto call republicans thewar mongers they are.

Get it.

The repubs are the problem.

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

The repubs pushing that massive effort endorse the National Defense Authorization Act for 2013. AKA HR 4310 which prepares for war in Iran. The bill I was telling you Obama will sign.

They're working on going to war in Iran. They have to "budget" for it and figure out plans first.

Notice how I'm speaking against these aggressive actions of war.

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Too little too late. I got your number.

If you want to end the indef det, drone bombings.

Then there is 1 thing we must do. Recognize the war mongering roots, the fear momgering roots, Acknowledge who is spewing that crap. And vote them out of office.

Otherwise you are just trying to attach blame to the wrong people. dems have made mistakes and we must protest them too. But the real problem is who has created the war posture, and who is trying to maintain it.

repubs are the problem!!!

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

Carl Levin is a sponsor too

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/107/s2225

I'll believe the sole problem is republicans when democrats stop voting with them in regards to these wars and their funding.

"Iraq has WMD's!" - Who said this one? Bush, Cheney, Clinton, or Biden?

The answer is all 4 of them.

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

So what! The problem is the massiverepub effort of fear mongering, war mongering. Dems ain't done nothing like it.

In fact Dems have been at the fore front of ratcheting down the rhetoric.

"bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb Iran" sung to the tune of Beach Boys Barbara ann. Who said that?

Let's look forward not back. We cannot reclaim that wasted money.

We can cut spending going forward. Everything needs to be looked at no matter how small. All the little things add up. It's like a credit card bill for $1,200 with nothing over $79 on it. We need to fund necessities not niceties. When the economy rebounds we can think about funding the "nice to have" things.

That was tongue in cheek based on the ads portraying Big Bird as a victim.

Why tax anyone to pay for TV programming?

If the programming cannot generate it's own revenue it is time for it to go. If it is good, enough people will want it and it will stay.

There really is nothing on PBS that you cannot find on self supported television.

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Independent news, science, & educational shows that are not empty, vapid, meaningless garbage beholden to corp advertizing dollars.

That's what is on PBS that you cannot find on self supported, reality tv dominated, empty violent sports dominated, commercial infested vast wasteland that is private tv.

Most of which is on cable and suprisingly enough not everyone can afford a monthly cable bill. It's funny how some people can trip out about 120 million going to educational programming yet the billions being handed out to major corps through subsidies and tax rebates is somehow ok.

There are lotsa channels and some good program but there is so much crap on these channels even.

Net Geographic just started running a show on hunting with Ted Nugent, right before Sons of Guns. Have you seen the pawn shop shows, This is all in an effort to improve ratings increase ad revenue.

Gimme a break. It is nothing like PBS. Who doesn't have to race to the bottom for ad revenue because the public supports it, and they get donations.

Sorry. I like some of the shows on the channels you mentioned but they are getting progressively worse.

[-] 1 points by conservatroll (117) 1 year ago

I watch a lot of PBS..no cable and a night owl. They run commercials before and after shows. They just don't run any DURING a program, but their programs are about 50-55m miniutes to get all those commercials in. I personally support my local pbs station and see no reason why taxpayers should. Many of them are already paying out the ass for cable. Not to mention the fact that their political coverage rivals only MSNBC in it's left wing bias. Charlie Rose has come out of the leftist closet (like that was a big surprise) since he joined ABC? in the morning. Frontine is the only show that attempts to look non partisan, but "The Choice" aired earlier this week was their coming out, I guess.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Leftist thinking is better. Conservative policies are at the root of all our problems (& the dems that vote for them).

The fed money for pbs is miniscule. The only reason repubs have tried to cut it is because they don't like the left leaning politics.

So they should get over it. It's childish.
