Straight past product earnings and a right at HBO

This should happen, PBS & NPR should be cut off. But be careful for what you wish for. I have a dumb feeling that someone like Soros or Bezos will pick up the slack & turn it into their own on the cheap. Much cheaper then if they built it on their own with their own cash.

Already done.

That is fine! I don’t care. It will win or fall on its own weight. It is people’s responsibility to decide to consume it or not.

There is also something about cutting funding for Meals on Wheels.
Six years ago, we had to fly to Los Angeles, and gather up my father in law and his belongings, because he could no longer care for himself.
While cleaning out his apartment, we found his freezer full of the frozen entrees from Meals on Wheels.
We asked him why he didn’t eat them, and he made a face. We offered them to the other seniors in his building, and they all made a similar face and passed on the offer.
They all liked the one hot meal a day they were given, but the frozen meals all ended up in the trash.
These meals were so unpalatable, that even low income seniors wouldn’t eat them. It must amount to millions of dollars of food wasted every year.
Since President Trump wants to cut back on funding to this program, I see no problem with it. Let them keep distributing the free hot meals, but end the frozen meals, since nobody eats them, why spend the money?

Yeah, we cancelled them for my dad too. He just wouldn’t eat them. I never tasted them but I guess they’re awfully bland and by the time you get done nuking them their consistency is not good.

Somehow private donations have gone up. The way it should be.

Good, it means more money for the wall.

Some fool on Twitter is saying that this is like the Fall of Rome *rolls eyes* the hysteria is so ridiculous at this point that I am just tuning out and not wanting to engage liberals at all.

Don’t know if this is real or hacked, but if it’s real, it’s another sign that the stupid are among us…

It reads like a child or a teen wrote it or else a very stupid kid in college.

Before they cut all the funding how about a statue of Obama in a bottle of urine? Put it on display in D.C. Can’t cost that much. WE could all contribute urine if need be.

Big bird has a deal with HBO and brings in $500mill annually for pbs. They’ll either all survive off contributions, which is how it should be, or they’ll die like that Liberal talk radio did.

I listen to NPR sometimes, mostly because that doggone government support seems to have given them the strongest signals everywhere, so if I’m on the road and having trouble finding a station… And some of their shows aren’t bad, but I’ve never been able to figure out why my tax dollars have to pay for those shows, or why there is so much advertising even though they get government support. Oh, they don’t CALL it advertising. They call it “sponsors” and they call it “fund raising” but the end result is even more irritating than commercial advertising so they might as well go commercial.

I liked car talk, but they stopped producing it.

Car Talk was a seriously great show. Didn’t get to hear it often but loved it when I did. Those two brothers had so much fun, you couldn’t help laughing along. I think what happened is one of the two died and the other one retired. There’s a replacement duo but they don’t have the same draw.

My dad loved that show.

Yes, for supposedly being non-commercial NPR stops for underwriting breaks [commercials] as often as commercial stations. NPR stations have always impressed me with their audio quality. It is superb and not over processed.

JPTravis

Yeah, I don’t know how they do it. Even when they interview someone over the phone the sound is superb.

No surveillance by the NSA.
