    That is capitalism at work. No need for taxpayer funding.

    Cut off Liberty University and Lockheed Martin, you can take a much bigger bite out of the debt, restore the Constitution, and reduce wars.

    True, Sesame Street and the Muppets are an incredibly profitable brand. The real victim of a funding cut to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting would be people in rural areas and small towns because their local PBS stations will have to quit broadcasting.

    Lockheed Martin is the only reason you aren’t living under Sharia Law now, so no right-thinking American would ever think about cutting any of the money we give to Lockheed, but should be clamouring to increase their funding. PBS, on the other hand, is likeable, but serves no strategic purpose. I understand they even try to suggest that Americans respect Muslims instead of leading lynch mobs against them. What kind of unAmerican propaganda is that, suggesting that criminals deserve a fair trial? That’s so 20th century. Now, the President knows who’s been naughty and who’s been nice, and gives them their well-deserved deserts, without the expense of a trial or proof or evidence. Which is a great improvement on the old, obsolete, extravagant 20th century protocols.

    Please let sesame street and big bird live. We might see an improvement in spelling and grammar on these pages when some of the posters have grown up a bit.

    By looking at TOYS people will think we’re funding Sesame St? Don’t most people know, it’s called our TAX MONEY that funds it… or did I miss something here??

    Michael: btw for the “real” conservatives, my brother retired from Lockheed Martin, had worked his whole career for these companies, and was always bragging about bagging bonuses from the government contracts, and shafting the taxpayer. All while he condemned “government” and complained he shouldn’t have to pay taxes! It was almost as amusing a twist as Romney’s campaign flips!

    Errr… I believe i “got” you, but to clarify: you talk about all the taxes, jobs etc. these products bring to the government and the economy, right? If so: interesting point I hadn’t considered until now, thank you!

    I have made this same argument as one who had ‘classes’ in front of a tv set in Elwood Indiana during third grade. There are millions who benefit from farm reports, state approved classes, and other offerings from PBS and CPB. NPR is mostly independent due to donations and trusts like the $225 million dollar bequest made by Joan Kroc of McDonald’s fame. Sesame Street, because of merchandising, is also largely independent of a need for public funding, but it is good for small children to be presented with educational programming without the intermiitent breaks to sell cereal, snacks, candy, drinks and toys.
    To paraphrase a recent moment on the Colbert Report…This episode of Sesame Street is brought to you today by the number “Skittles” and the letter “Gold”.
    Good comment neighbor.

    Let those corporations reinvest in their own future on PBS instead of the Government. Maybe they would be able to write it off as a donation.
