    Only extreme left wing liberals believe PBS is important enough to borrow money from China to pay for it. And only a fool thinks anyone wants to kill Big Bird.

    But it is all right to borrow money to kill foreign innocent civilians.

    Funny seeing as how the most popular program on TV last year was Downtown Abby on PBS.

    Funny also in that PBS news is he most trusted on TV.

    PBS is not the most trusted news on TV good Grief.

    And if you are going to use scripture make sure you understand it first. You might try visiting the "Methods of Bible Study " thread.


    The liberal devotion to PBS only goes to show their agenda to indoctrinate and their mindset thinking they have a right to tax payers money to do it.

    And, how is it you support borrowing money from China to kill innocent civilians in other countries ... but not to fund wholesome programming for American families. The amount of money used to fund PBS would not last an hour in the Defense Budget.

    I would much rather be known as a person who wants to help people than to kill them. I believe Christ had a few words to say about helping others.

    Show me one single post where I said I support such a thing. Otherwise you are being a false witness much like you are when you suggest anyone wants to "kill" Big Bird.


    Because we are broke. We do not have the money. We cannot afford it. Why would you want to spend money we do not have? What part of "we are broke" do liberals not understand.

    Of course, if one does not agree with a liberal then it is because of hate. Maybe some day you will find an adult argument.

    You cry about PBS that helps people and support policies that are funded to use against other countries where many civilians, who are innocent, are killed.




    Then lets cut out a fighter jet or two, fund PBS and have extra money to help other programs that help people.



    Hate is your word. So I guess you consider helping others hatred, but killing innocent civilians love. Interesting.

    Reminds me of the story of the Lt. in Vietnam who told a reporter, "That is a friendly village. So we have to destroy it before it can become an enemy village."

    Very strange logic.

    Rev. read Christ's words on how we are to treat others.

    PBS does not such thing. It is a far left wing indoctrination channel and completely biased. It deserves no public funding nor is it constitutional to fund it federally.

    Again show me where I posted anything supporting the killing of anyone innocent or recant your false accusation.

    Left wing bias should never be publically funded.





    Is there an ounce of honesty in you anywhere. You just used it against me.



    Apparently you emotion is getting the best of you.

    So, Rev., you would rather your children watch the soft porn. on commercial TV and the sexually oriented programs and obscene reality programs rather than watch PBS programs such as:

    Lark Rise to Candleford
    Masterpiece Theater
    Downtown Abby
    Last of the Summer Wine
    Sesame Street
    Keeping Up Appearances

    and there are others.


    Do you allow your children to watch such wholesome programs?

    Its not an either or Crabby. Your strawman will not work with me. Obama got taken to the woodshed and completely exposed because he finally had to stand tall and directly answer a critic without being sheltered by the left wing media and he couldn't handle it. And all you have to talk about is exaggerated claims about Big Bird.

    Which is exactly what the DNC is doing. Nor surprises here. Maybe you could talk about something of real substance like why Obama could not handle debating Romney.

    The fact of the matter is that if Sesame Street lost its taxpayer funding, if it were deemed to be of real value it could go commercial and earn its keep the old fashioned way.


    And it's Downton Abbey, not Downtown Abbey.

    I will concede that BO is much Much Much better when he has the words & answers all scripted out for him on a Teleprompter....otherwise he is completely inept.

    I suppose Crabby might argue that he honed his reading skills by watching Sesame Street.:smilewinkgrin:

    Only when the left wing loses as badly as they did in the debate do they single out a stupid issue like PBS and Big Bird to try to deflect the real problem with the President: When faced with someone who could talk back immediately without the interference of the Lame Street Media and without his beloved teleprompter, he is revealed as an empty suit.

    If you don't believe this, look at the media's coverage of the President on the campaign trail the day after. He is described as energized and on the attack. Why? Because no one will contradict him and he can speak from a carefully prepared script.
