Romney wants to cut funding for PBS and Sesame Street

Discussion in 'Sesame Street' started by tutter_fan, Oct 4, 2012.

    Both parties are definitely tied to corporate interests and I don't like it, but their behaviors are far different. I hate it when people over-simplify such matters. Many would argue that Romney's plan will put the country back into the Bush policies that have buried Obama's administration. That's also somewhat of a simplification, but a much more accurate one. Trickle-down economics don't work when profits go to off-shore bank accounts and jobs go overseas. Many of the funds driving American companies are coming from overseas interests too. Just to be clear, I’m not making this point as a xenophobe. It’s a point of fact that Obama has been misidentified as the candidate that favors global interests over American ones. This is why the GOP has been dodging the math. There is a difference between the parties. A big difference! /soapbox.

    We should come up with a name for something like that though. On topic but being silly. Hmm..Muppety is already taken.
    All right. I'm out of ideas.

    Yeah like those classic Sesame Street books "Don't Forget the Obama!" and "Romney's Big Mess."

    I just hate it who do you vote for when you don't even like either one???

    Maybe you don't have a choice.:crazy:

    I suggest you take up coin flipping. Usually works best for me.
  9. Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    I always have a choice and I choose those books that heralde recommended. :p

    But what if the coin goes all Twilight Zoney and lands on its side?

    I'm trying to think of a witty line for that one...Nah. I got nothing.

    Sorry for double posting.

    It's what Big Bird would want! :wisdom:
  15. Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    That would get me nowhere considering I am not for either candidate. I mean in all seriousness I know voting is important and an American right but I also feel it's my right to also not vote if I don't see either candidate getting the job done.
  16. heralde Well-Known Member

    It's OK, sometimes you have to let it roll around your head for awhile...the joke not the coin.

    If more people felt that way perhaps the gov't would finally think we actually wanted change.

    Dinosaurs defined Trickle down in the most honest way possible. If I can remember the quote, it was something like, sometimes rich dinosaurs have so much money it trickles out of their pockets and falls out so other dinosaurs can grab it. Trickle down didn't work 8 years ago, it didn't work now. Last time our economy was really good, the taxes were pretty high, then they were cut a little bit back and we had a surplus. Then Bush came, made us fight 2 wars (one he was basically pushing for when he was debating in 2000, we know which one that was) and didn't fund either, cutting money from the budget to make room, and that's what lead so many states to the verge of bankruptcy. It wasn't just Bush. It was the Hurray for Neocons voting movement that left like minded politicians to unwisely slash budgets so more money can go to corporate interests. And in that time, schools were underfunded, fire houses were shut down (abysmal! Weren't we painting them as heroes back then, only to keep putting them out of work?), Police were underfunded. Now we have some wimpy Dems trying to clean up after them and they can't.

    There's so many despicable activities the Tea party NeoCon elects made us suffer through the past 2 years when they stole back the smaller branches of government. My favorite? Refusing to give storm ravaged states disaster relief until the budget was slashed (as long as it's not military! We have STOCK in that!). And this is all because of rich man children like Grover "crybaby" Norquest who doesn't wanna pay his wittle taxes, and the Koch brothers. I didn't vote for them, but they have more say in the government that any voter does.

    I agree, both parties are unfortunately owned by corporate interests, but the right has more of them on their side working for them.

    My theory is this: (If I was old enough to vote now, this is what I'd do)
    I would vote for Obama. Beucase at least we know what he's like, and we know what he keeps his word on, personally, I kinda don't like how he's handling the whole situation in Iran. But I don't know if Romney can help that. He might want to, but I think what he's thinking is unrealistic and probably won't help. I think he's ready to go to war. But right now, Obama is also trying to stop the situation in every way, if he can't then he'll have to go to war with Iran.
    I think Obama can handle it better than him. (He was president for four years already)

    For me it's always been I see pros and cons on both sides. That's why I'm an independent voter. Although I'm sure you guys have already figured out that out. :p
