    People really need to learn math.
    The journey of 14 trillion miles begins with the first step.....saying we shouldnt take the first step because its just a small step...........is why the journey is 14 trillion miles long and growing.

I learned about how a "bill" becomes a "law," and I learned how to enunciate the s-ou-nds of my words much better as a small child. PBS rocks!

    Why on earth would anybody want to cut that? Oh, wait a minute. We are talking about our Federal Government are we not. Well, ehem... in that case, the call for cuts make much more sense now.
    If PBS and NPR are so vital.......

    .......Im sure you and your liberal buddies will find a way to fund it. We The People are out.......

    True. Why does that mean it should get taxpayer money?

    Kill all government funding to all unconstitutional programs, let NRP, PBS and others obtain their own funding.

    More specifics would be good. What are all the un-Constitutional programs?

    To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

    The Congress could try doing that since the privately owned company illegally doing it now isn't doing such a swell job.

    To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offenses against the Law of Nations;

    To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;


    These go together. Why hasn't Congress authorized privateers to fix the pirates-in-a-dinghy problem?

    Because it's too busy doing those things it's not supposed to do instead. Some examples of this are:

    NPR
    NEA
    Dept of Education
    Dept of Energy
    Dept of Labor
    Welfare
    Social Security
    etc etc etc.

    Corporation for Public Broadcasting
    National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities
    Department of Education and associated federal funding of education on all levels
    All welfare expenditures
    All corporate subsidies
    All farm subsidies
    Federal loan guarantees for education, home ownership, anything else.
    Social Security
    Medicaid, Medicare, Obamacare
    Food and Drug Administration

    The list is long, axe those and get back to the Americans for another.
