    Boy, you people can stop with the personal attacks, can you?

    If NPR is sufficiently financed by private donation to be inependent as you claim, then there is no need for the government finance it by stealing money from people who do not listen to it. You people are claiming that NPR is fiscally solvent and then claiming that the taxpayer MUST fund it.

    Well, which is it?

    Mayor Snorkum says that if the taxpayer is funding it, then NPR MUST be subject to the "Fairness Doctrine", and have it's airtime must be devoted to the right side of issues. The Fairness Doctrine must not be applied to privately own commercial broadcasters, but if the taxpayer is funding NPR it is only right that NPR start presenting the side of the issues that benefits Americans and not just liberals.

    Good gawd......testament to why Freedom and Liberty are dying on the vine in this country.....and why a small piece of the Constitution should be placed on the roll in every liberal's bathroom....and a picture of a Forefather or Founder inscribed in the toilet bowl.

    Re: De-fund NPR and PBS

    Let me try this one more time in words (hopefully) you can understand...

    The Constitution does NOT outline every detail that affects our society nor does it outline every responsibility of Congress or the authority of the President, but it DOES grant Congress the powoer to write laws it believes will bring about "good order and discipline" within our society, as well as granting the President certain authority under the law. Within these laws is deliniated who has what authority to do such and such. For example, under the Constitution, only Congress has the authority to declare war. Under the Patriot Act, only Congress has the authority to extend that law. See how that works?

    If you want to know why PBS and NPR exist or why Congress provides funding for same, I suggest you read the Public Broadcasting Act, not the Constitution.

    So a statist.....listening to statist radio......decides everything the state says is 100% true.

    The Democrat Party holds the purse strings of PBS and NPR.......and PBS and NPR dont have an agenda?

    .......I mean you seriously believe this?
    Tell you what, why don't we just burn every newpaper, magazine, book, close down every news station except FoxNews and just sit in our super secret underground bunkers in a non-descript location with the glow of our TV's tuned only to Fox and wait until we get the all clear from Sean Hannity, Bill O'Rielly or better yet Glenn Beck to come out and play?

    Will that suit you?

    Some people are just so freaking #@#$@#!$%!!!

    I really think you should check this out sometime........The United States Constitution - The U.S. Constitution Online - USConstitution.net.......its a good read......

    And then check out some of the Author's other work.........


    "If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare,
    and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare,
    they may take the care of religion into their own hands;
    they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish
    and pay them out of their public treasury;
    they may take into their own hands the education of children,
    establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union;
    they may assume the provision of the poor;
    they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads;
    in short, every thing, from the highest object of state legislation
    down to the most minute object of police,
    would be thrown under the power of Congress.... Were the power
    of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for,
    it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature
    of the limited Government established by the people of America."

    Limbaugh peddles ideas? I think not.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    I have. Hence, how I came across this from Art I, Sect. 8:

    To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.
    We're done...

    You ARE the weakest link...goodbye.

    So "Government can do whatever it wants"........just say it already.

    To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

    No, that is simply a slippery slope fallacy. Just because the government can do some things does not mean it can do anything it wants.
