    Sesame Street is such a major merchandising machine that it can sustain its own operations without federal assistance; even the people behind the show admit this, and would rather that people not keep dragging the show into this.

    Destroy PBS and build up our already overpriced military, thats what will happen when the Mitt hits the fan.

    Hmmm…I just read the Constitution, and there isn’t anything there on muppets and televised mindrot for rugrats. However, there WAS something there about “defense.”

    Besides, does anyone seriously believe that Sesame Street is going to die if it isn’t subsidized by the government? It is a HUGE money-making franchise, and it will get picked up by a profitable network should PBS go away.

    Congress gave PBS about $450 million this year. If that’s Mitt Romney’s big answer on how to fix a trillion dollar deficit, I don’t think he deserves to be taken seriously.

    In the meantime, Romney promises to increase our military spending by trillions, despite the fact that we are outspending China by 7 to 1, and Russia by about 14 to 1.

    A wise President would be looking to our allies in Asia to help pay the costs of containing China.

    I thought you had already reached your bottom but I was wrong again.

    No… only if we do not have to borrow the money from China… Let Sesame Street go commercial and pay for itself.. it certainly has all of the creative forces to be major competition from Disney or other "entertainment’ focused organizations.

    Falwell’s “Liberty University” received far (many times more) from the Office of Faith Based Initiatives, than public broadcasting. By far the most support comes from private contributors and subscribers for Public Broadcasting. Mitt hates it because it’s actually unbiased.

    If that was the main thing Lalo learned from the debate then maybe we need Sesame Street For Adults.

    Did he actually mean to say “Fired” instead of “Fried” or it just an unfunny pun?

    @dtroutma

    Did you here in the narrative that Romney gave that he would be looking to downsize “departments” maybe combine some eliminate others? Perhaps this Office of Faith Based initiatives should go away as well. Seems to be a conflict of interest for the government to me.

    And you can take your “unbiased” assessment of PBS and tuck it into your tin foil hat.

    PBS is already part of the basic cable package… and surprise they already have commerials… So they gave you your Trickle me Elmo® for free?

    Billionaires like Big Bird do not need to be on the nation’s payroll. It is really Obama who wants to protect those 1% of the most wealthy.

    Easy to fix. Just make it a law that any money you give to people running for office has to be used to advertise on PBS. Kill two birds with one stone I would nothave to watch every other commercial being a politcal slot. And the other question is seeing that they are commercial is not there a truth in advertising law. Bot that would get rid of the politcal ads.

    Bruce: yes, I did hear what Mitt said about “downsizing” as in removing ALL regulations controlling corporate thievery. I also listened to his “plan” to turn all programs over to the states, who are ALREADY IN BANKRUPTCY because they’ve been failing to collect enough in taxes to run EXISTING programs turned over to the states by previous Republican Congressional and Executive actions.


    If folks think things are bad now, just give Mittens (actually Adelson, Koch brothers etc) a matching idiot Congress, and hang on to your hat, because they’ll steal it.

    @dtroutma

    Can you look yourself in the eye and repeat that? During the debate Romney said explicitly that he had no plan do do away with all regulation. And if you have less of an obligation to the federal government then you keep more money in the states. Why do you think it is a good thing to send money to DC so they can get their skim before they send it back to the states?

    Funny, I happen to agree with your idea that government will indeed steal your hat if you are not vigilant.
