The UK is disbanding the BAOR as we speak as an outdated setup that is not needed any more in the 21st Century. I see no reason why US troops shouldn't be called back as well.

Big Bird needs to get toasted. Flame broiled.


Don't watch much PBS or listen to much NPR, do you?

I watch some of the local PBS programming, and the musical specials during Pledge Drives. On NPR, it is mostly local classical programming, and The Thistle & Shamrock and a local jazz program on Sunday evenings.

I enjoy these programs enough to have set up recurring monthly donations to both the local PBS (KVPT-18) and NPR (KVPR-89.3) stations. I also support a local independent, low-power radio station, KVLP-LP (101.5), which plays some stuff I can't find anywhere else on the dial, not even on satelite.

If federal funding for PBS and NPR goes away, if the services they provide are of value to enough people, they will get their funding. They already get some funding from major corporations like Exxon/Mobil, and national non-profit foundations.

Donald, what they (PBS and NPR) will shift to will be funded 'infomercials' -- heck they could get millions of dollars for infomercials on Cialis and Viagra -- that would make entertaining and informative watching instead of those lousy news and drama shows.

@James, that would also mean no more American Hospitals to serve as an interm stop for the insured troops.
A lot of bases have already been closed. I used to live in an area with the hightest amount of Americans outside the US. Of course that was before the Wall came down.
What I am trying to say is, it is not that simple.

Yeah, if their management/fundraising department is half as smart as their creative department, they will find ways to get funding, and viewers will continue to enjoy their favorite programs....

They don't NEED federal funding to survive, they will just have to work harder...

Since this thread started, I've had an over riding image of Mitt Romney standing over an oven with a roasted big bird on a platter....

..I'm surprised that no images are available for that......

....it'll be a cracker of an image if someone did!

Maybe Mitt could enlist Big Bird as a surrogate & drive him around in a cage secured to the top of one of his Cadillacs?

I agree there are places to start -- defense would be one. I suspect TSA might be another.

There should be cuts in entitlements -- including entitlements to the very wealthy.


Yes there should be... as well as Food stamps and cash assistance to the poor.

the poor as well as the rich should be responsible for themselves. By income alone I qualify for food stamps and public healthcare, yet I pay close to $700 dollars a month for my families healthcare because it is no one responsibility but mine.

As to cuts in food stamps and assistance to the poor -- cuts or elimination?

Should there also be elimination of below living standards wages?

Your forgetting some people who are sick or i'll, this isn't a perfect world. To ask them did you make $700 this year? you got to be kidding. Look at the coal miners that got crap for pay and they can't cover the med's? I paid my SS all my life, but to deprive me of my rights? I think not.

Ive said it before, You do away with SS, Give me my money back with interest, And we call it even.
SS would be ok today if the pig at the troth politician would have left it alone.

Im sick of the crap. We are supposed to tighten our belts and suck it up as the D.C. ripoff buttwipes vote them selves a payraise and get great free health care for the rest of there life. And pass laws that they dont have to obey. And get a retirement package that we can only dream of.

You guys piss and moan about this party or that. Well both partys suck and are idiots. But we are the stupid ones for keeping them in power.

I dont know who to vote for Tuesday. But who cares its the same ole same ole.

Someone has to be in power to run things. You guys over the pond have the same problem that the UK has (had). Two main parties, both as bad as each other, and no alternative.

I don't know who to vote for Tuesday. But who cares its the same ole same ole.

We have a different ole at the moment, a coalition. Well, surprise, surprise, no-one likes that either.

Simple answer. Vote for this lot. You know it makes sense.
