    PBS gets only like 12% (I think) of it's funding federally, the rest comes from viewers like you (). It's just a really terrible argument to talk about how much we spend on public television compared to how much we spend on so many other things. The way I see it, considering how much good public television does for education, arguments against Big Bird seem nothing but political.

    But to your point, why would a document from the 18th century have language about television?

    what part of the constitution authorizes the federal government to spend even a dime on PBS? you seem not to understand the point. its not about the money-its about the proper constitutional powers of the government.

    In that regard, I would say certain changes due to technology reach far beyond the Constitution. Part of the reason we're held back so much is because of the language of the Constitution, because it doesn't take into account the rate of change in our society, though we can't blame our forefathers, how were they to know? Television and the internet are becoming (and in some cases have already become) integral parts of life, so we either keep up with that or we cave in to die-hard fundamentalism.

    so what part of technology now authorizes expenditures on public television when there is plenty of private television (some would say too much)
