Regardless of which side of the isle you identify with you must certainly agree that the other side received it's share of "pork" to make it's constituents happy.
The one that has me shaking my head is the $75 million for Public Television.
Why not throw a billion to the buggy whip industry?
I'm 65, almost 66, and I remember them rolling out public television when I was in grade school. If I remember correctly Riverside Grade School made use of it once a week for that school year and then that was the end of it.
Frankly I've never liked their programing and I'm just going to say that if most people did like it public TV would not need to be tax payer subsidized. I mean really if 10,000 stupid subject shows survive on their own on all the cable channels why can't public TV???
Maybe at the root of all this is my resentfulness that public TV killed FUN & ENTERTAINING children's cartoons! Ever since public TV children's cartoons have to have a politically correct message. When I was young I could spend Saturday morning in front of the TV laughing... today 5 minutes of children's cartoons leave me puking.
