NPR must take off their training wheels and learn to stand on their own 2 feet.

Some would say they are leaches and slugs have no feet, so I say they should learn to slink on their belly without our Tax Dollars.

Childish, stupid, partisan, and dishonest. That's the reTHUGlican-controlled House. This is their idea of "doing something for America" - dividing us, wasting time, voting a few million dollars off our vast budget and claiming they're "fixing" it, pursuing their partisan and ideological agenda.

That's good, it's not going to happen and the American people will vote the 'baggers out in 2012 anyway. Who cares.

You were SHELLACKED in Nov. 2010 and will be taken to the wood shed again in 2012.

The reason for these beatings? It's because you SUCK. Can't even cut off the easy low hanging fruit like useless npr funding. Geesh.

Hillary says FUBO!

Fed up with a president “who can’t make his mind up” as Libyan rebels are on the brink of defeat, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is looking to the exits.

At the tail end of her mission to bolster the Libyan opposition, which has suffered days of losses to Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s forces, Clinton announced that she’s done with Obama after
2012 — even if he wins again.

“Obviously, she’s not happy with dealing with a president who can’t decide if today is Tuesday or Wednesday, who can’t make his mind up,” a Clinton insider told The Daily.“She’s exhausted, tired.”

He went on,“If you take a look at what’s on her plate as compared with what’s on the plates of previous Secretary of States — there’s more going on now at this particular moment, and it’s like playing sports with a bunch of amateurs. And she doesn’t have any power. She’s trying to do what she can to keep things from imploding.”

Waste of time and money it won't pass the Senate. So what's the point. Broaden your viewing. You never watch Sesame Street?

Plus where are the jobs that they were campaigning on?

You're such a Putz.



Wasting Tax Payer money when we are broke must be exposed constantly in an effort to make this broken administration and rotten parties change.



Watching Gov run News Media IS NOT BROADENING your horizons sh*thead. ABC, MSNBC and CBS are already leftist media.
Sesame street will continue just fine without tax payer funding.




Where are the Jobs Blobama?

"I was just told there are No Such thing as -Shovel Ready Jobs- "
- Broke Obama




CBO says Killing Obamacare will Save 800,000 Jobs.- Ouch!-

Obama already has daily WH postings, speeches, and weakly radio addresses. We don't need NPR repeating it every night. This duplication is a complete waste of tax payer money.

The pressure is building to attach a repeal of ObamaCare or funding for NPR / Planned Parenthood to the next 2011 continuing resolution bill.

The Republican leaders don't want to do it because they think it will lead to a government shutdown that Democrats want.

But sooner or later there has to be a showdown over federal spending so we might as well get it over with.

Disagree with that. Big Bird stayed on an 1/2 an hour a day. Now if parents didn't do anything with their children other then placing them in front of the television that is the parents' fault.

Sesame Street is a tool to be used with other learning. Like how you would know not to use curse words when talking about a children's program.

When you come up with something intelligent or relevant, let us know, nitwit. Your performance until now leaves that highly in doubt, however.

Get bent.
