I don't belong to a political party. I'm smarter then that. I'm not a puppet like you.

My Research posted above proves you're nothing but a despot and a liar.

I'm sure My reading of the 128 Documented is more than you've done in years.

India and China are catching up because they have the cheapest Labor and the Lowest Regulations.

I'm sorry your pea brain is struggling this morning but Sesame Street IS NOT AN ECONOMIC or EDUCATIONAL ADVANTAGE Over other Countries. It's just a TV show, games, costume sales, CD sales, etc. And their Corporation DOES NOT Need Taxpayer Funds. You just demonstrated the INABILITY TO THINK CRITICALLY.

Name Calling only makes you look dumber and more of a despot. Congrats!

India and China SENDS THEIR BEST STUDENTS TO AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES and Other Private schools dumbo. Facts are Fun!

Maybe you should get a job and you might even meet them! I suspect you're angry demeanor and illiteracy issues prevent you from such but that's alright. You can spew hate and lies here all day.

I don't consider the analogy of an empty chair is fitting for RomNey though an (expensive) empty suit might be better.

A suit that is considered dishonest and unlikeable.

This is a Corporation that's been doing well for Decades but still continues asking for a Subsidy. A hand Out. It's wrong.
There are many Big Corporations making millions and some billions that also receive subsidies. It even may be the company you work for.

Now do a search on some of the top 30 corporations that pay not taxes but receive tax returns and many also receive subsidies. Please list the executives salaries and compensation like you did with PBS. You can start with General Electric.

Yep, that's our president, so cool, so classy and so adult. Oh, well, it coulda been and will be when Romney gets elected.

As usual the president and his administration prove just how sophomoric and childish they can be, how low they can go. They pick on the one, least damaging to them, point of the whole debate and run with it. Davie Pfloff or however you spell his name, is in full junior high school mode, the one that resonates with the 18 to 20 group but turns off the adults in the room. We want a grown up leading America, not this buffoon caricature of a president. He goes into smarmy sarcasm and mocking when he's crossed. Most kids grow out of that by the time they reach their majority, this little thin skinned boy-child never got that far. Maybe it was too much drink and drugs in his teens that arrested his development into an adult.

Lordy, you are on a role with this misinformation. Who do you think is running the public schools buddy? Ah yes, the Teachers and their UNIONS, all democrats and left leaning to the nth degree. You really need to stay off the far left blogs and do a bit a real research. Check out where PRIVATE school children rank, you will be able to see why so many parents do without to put their children in private school. PBS rakes in millions, MILLIONS with sales of Sesame Street characters and movies and more. The really do not need the governments support any more than the Discovery channel, a much better information source anyhow, does.

Other than the foul language you contribute nothing to this debate. Sesame Street teaches the alphabet, as does head start, parents and other children shows. Whoopie. They do not teach science or math and do not contribute to any intellectual advantage to children, other than learning their colors, the liberal way of looking at the world (so much so recently that many parents do NOT let their children watch it or watch it only with their parents observing what they are being told) and the aforementioned alphabet. Again, Whoopie! Perhaps if the government, which seems to break everything they touch, was NOT in charge of the public schools and perhaps if the teachers and their unions were not so far left leaning, our children would be learning to succeed not just go with the flow, not try to be better than any other student (BAD in the liberal lexicon) and we would once again have only ONE Valedictorian, not several so no one's feeling got trod on because they couldn't be the best too. Being the best, outdoing others in your class is frowned on by the liberals, after all we are all equal, right? Well that type of thinking simply dumbs the whole down to the lowest common denominator. That is why America's public school students are falling behind, why they graduate from HS barely able to read and write much beyond an 8th grade level and have no idea how to balance a check book. It's not conservatives dumbing down education, it's the liberal mantra of equality of result for all, not the conservative mantra and equality of opportunity for all.

GE is a huge donor to Obama, best friends of Obama and lent their best man to Obama for his Jobs Committee, J. Imelt, ex-GE high honcho, great friend and donor to Obama. Now, let's see, hmm, could there be some connection between the favored status of GE and money changing hands and a certain man being elected president? Yes indeedie, there certainly can be. LOL
