Nothing is hitting my nerve this morning so I just thought I’d write a bunch of small thoughts this morning….
PUBLIC BROADCASTING PONZI SCHEME
First, it is getting very scary how GPW and I seem to channel each other. Throughout the course of last week, after a conversation I had with PatriotPartner, I had started to do some research into how much taxpayer dollars are used to prop up the Public Broadcasting Service and National Public Radio. And lo and behold, GPW did this posting over the weekend. Scary!
I’ll go even further. I want NO taxpayer money used for ANY public financing of television OR radio. NPR is nothing more than an outlet for liberal-only opinions using MY tax money. There is no reason for this dinosaur of the “Big Three Network” days. We have XM Satellite and SIRIUS Satellite radio, and of course we have “Air America.” If liberals want an outlet for their point of view, then they need to get their rich Hollywood friends to finance such an outlet in the private sector.
My guess is that they are too afraid to play in the marketplace, so instead they want to continue this extortion of the American public to subsidize their outdated opinions.
Kudos to BoiFromTroy for pointing this out on his site….Blogads, the service which sells ads to blogs is conducting its second annual survey of blog readers.
Please CLICK HERE to take the survey and please make sure to type in “gaypatriot.org” under question 16 where they ask who referred you. It will help me learn more about the readers of this blog.
Please take a moment today and fill out the Blogads survey. Thank you!
I tend to be the one who cracks dry, sarcastic jokes at meetings and conference calls. This morning we were discussing the fact that, despite all odds and pundit predictions, private insurance plans are actually now rushing to participate in the new Medicare drug benefit which goes into effect in January 2006. My response: “Well, of course they are stepping up to the plate… they saw the Iraqis voting. After all, isn’t that the answer for everything good these days?”
