If the cartoon above had a picture of Obummer answering the Big Bird question instead, he would say. “Timmy doesn’t have to worry about the price, he’ll get the apples for free just as long as I am reelected. We’ll just keep sending checks to China to cover the cost so no worries.”
FORGET cutting the AID to totally biased PBS, I say we take the exact same Federal Borrowed Dollars we are subsidizing PBS with and give that amount to FOX NEWS as well….watch the libtard heads explode and PBS will be unfunded in 10 seconds….
It would be a good thing to start defunding some of these crap acronym agencies like PBS, NPR, EPA, TSA etc. but we’ll need an R Congress along with an R President to get something done. It’s why the down ticket races are just as important as the Presidential race. We need to hold the House and get the Senate back.
Of course Mitt could just do everything by EO like the current sack of shit does, but I think he has a clue as to how things should work.
We must stop giving tax dollars to private industry. Period.
I say save PBS and pay for it with our foreign aid money..tell all those other countries who hate us to bugger off..
let’s put the United States.. first for a change..
It’s a bull@#$% question–Timmy would never buy another apple in his life after being subjected to Obama school lunch.

Looks like a bird arm holding an apple
The best thing I ever watched on PBS was “Alone in the Wilderness”, the story of Dick Proenneke who built a cabin in the Alaskan wild so he could get away from all the craziness.
Now I find myself wanting to do the same thing he did, and it’s ironic that taxpayer funding of PBS is part of the craziness I would like to get away from.
Dick was in his 50s when he built his cabin at Twin Lakes. He lived there until the cold got to be too much for him in his 80s. The cabin is still there. The book is a great read, so screw PBS, buy the book and the video if you like adventure.
PBS is a waste now days. For me, locally, PBS offers nothing new and unique. It offers nothing that can not be found on 20-40 other channels on cable/satellite (which I no longer have since I rarely watch TV anymore).
I liked the adult educational type of programs that PBS, the History Channel, The Discovery channel and others use to have. But it got so bad that they rarely had anything new. It was all repeat/rehash/reedit of the same old shows from 20-30 years ago and they just rotated from channel to channel each month. Then the reality shows come marching in. Anything new that may have been good was either tainted with personalities that I refuse to watch like Morgan Freeman or were so slanted toward global warming that I would yell at the TV.
Kids programming can be found on dozens of channels – many all day long.
Locally, my station seems to have a pledge drive every couple of months. It is bad with no shame on their part.
Let PBS survive (if it can) on it’s own. Add more ads and sponsors, or better yet, put programming on that we would actually “pay” to watch.
Of course everyone knows only 3% of PBS funding comes “directly” from the gov. The trick is that the Feds fund all the PBS stations out there in all those many congressial districts. Those subsidized stations then “pay” PBS for their programing.
Conclusion, your not going to separte Big Bird from the Federal feeder until those brave members of congress are willing to defund all those PBS stations that their local constiuants have grown attached to. Given the success that the defense industry has had by strategically distributing production across multiple congressional disticts the chances of actually separating PBS from FED is rather low.
When Barney and Big Bird were making millions. How
much was money was paid back to PBS.?
Is this Claudia’s Sunday feature,
“Critters on the dole?”
I haven’t seen but a handful of shows on PBS in the past 10 years that even interested me enough to watch.
I think that if Romney gets elected…Big Bird’s GOOSE IS COOKED!
