Financing Buggy Whips

PB spendingRegardless 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.

whipedWhy 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.

There will be millions of dollars for the members of congress to waste. And, they are certainly experienced in meeting the demands of lobbyists.

Nina Hollander it seems that people put up with the pork barrel spending as long as the bacon comes home.

Bob,

Like Nina Hollander said, we keep re-electing the same people, and the lobbyist keep doling out the money to those people...A

I had no idea that helium was no longer used for balloons.

Good afternoon Bob.The only thing that spurs certain politicians is "what is in it for me" and "puffing their egos"! The sad part, we go to the polls and elect them! Ponder that!

Morning Bob.

The only time I watch our local PBS station is for the Antiques Roadshow.  Otherwise, I don't watch it.  In my opinion, if they can't make it on their own, bye-bye

Hello Bob - at the risk of being a liberal Commie(I have been called worst) - I don't agree on your view of public-funded television but I do understand your thoughts on wasteful spending which is evident whenever and wherever one who is truly looking for such things can find.

I'm afraid that nothing was going to stop this bill Wayne Martin . Thank God a few things were stripped out of it in the end.

Agreed James Dray . We used to watch the Antiques Road Show as well but some friends went to a local airing and they left so angry as to how horribly it was organized and the way they were treated while waiting to have their item reviewed and evaluated. It looks simple on TV but that one hour show is days of people standing in line and being treated with less respect than cattle.

You know I love you Michael Jacobs and I'd never say such things about you. I can honestly say I don't know anyone who says that PTV is their favorite channel. I do know people who mention ONE show but I don't even remember one time I've heard someone say I like XYZ and XYC on PTV. Again, especially in this day and age of so many forms of communication if it can't survive on it's own then tax payers should have to pay for something the vast majority don't want.
