PBS (and Facebook) Anger

So the proposed government budget has passed the House of Representatives and is under consideration in the Senate. This bill completely cuts funding to Public Broadcasting as well as many other (woefully UNDERfunded, by the way) programs that are VERY important to all Americans educationally and culturally. The bill cuts funding for things that are actually a very small portion of the budget while ignoring the giant slice of the pie which goes to the defense budget. Now I’m not saying to cut our military but all this talk about “the system is broke” sure doesn’t seem to come into play when it gets down to fixing the “system” of military contractors milking the hell out of the government cow and spreading the profits around to Congress members who “see things their way”.

And the thought of Boehner running around like Christian Bale in American Psycho with an axe is pretty funny to me.

If you want to get involved, the website is or become a fan on Facebook.

That’s the good part of Facebook. The bad part is that the new photo viewer on the stupid thing cuts off the lower portion of your pictures! Apparently Zuckerberg had a traumatic experience with the bottom third of a photograph when he was a child and now he’s taking it out on all of us.
