    Let me ask everyone that thinks this is no big deal. Would you stand still for a member of our government who proposed ethnic cleansing? Or, would you all just blow it off as you're doing now?

    Of course not. Ethnic cleansing is inhuman. This is just a stupid idea for an unreasonable fee.

    Good thing no one is suggesting anything like that. We still don't have real details on what this guy actually said in his book. Was he musing over possible ways to handle a tough question, was he talking about things that should not be done, was this his ideal solution? We don't know since none of us has read the book, and misrepresenting people's words is a tried and true part of politics. We just had the Ezekiel Emanuel thing, where certain right wingers made a big deal about some things in his writings that turned out to be totally out of context.

    Until we get actual plans to change PBS, complaining about this guy is a bit premature.

    I have lived among some highly educated people much of my life, and it is clear to me that many of them are so focused on their specialties that what should be common knowledge and good judgement escapes them completely.

    Just let it pass as long as all he does is propose it. If he pushes it, then we have a problem.

    Nazi reference on page 2 of the thread! Not a record, but still pretty darn good. It's nice we have a few people who can always be counted on to make idiotic over the top comments that have nothing to do with the topic of discussion.

    Just giving you an historic example. What's that old saying? You should know it. It was coined by one of the original Libbos.
