Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street?

 

I really wish that I could find a way around the inability to put Comedy Central videos in WordPress posts, but until I do, I’m going to have to settle for links. This one is from Monday night’s “Daily Show” with an epic Stewart piece on how the funding for Big Bird et al is miniscule in comparison to other budget line items. And by the way Lou Dobbs can’t do math . . .

Here’s part of a piece by Meenal Vamburkar followed by a link to the clip:

On Monday night, Jon Stewarttook on the presidential debate. In particular, the Big Bird Debacle of 2012. “Who fires Big Bird?” Stewart asked. Then proceeding to mock the reasoning behind the conservative outrage over federal funding for PBS.

You’d think cutting Sesame Street funding wouldn’t make much of a dent in grand scheme of things, Stewart observed, but you couldn’t be more wrong. Eight million taxpayer dollars fund the show.

Not a huge line in the budget, but it’s about principle! Cue Lou Dobbs‘ criticizing President Obama for wanting to cut $4 billion in tax breaks for Big Oil. That’s only 0.0008 percent of the $5 trillion Obama’s added to the deficit, Dobbs exclaimed.

Thus, by conservative logic, Stewart pondered, eight million is greater than four billion? And why do conservatives feel so strongly anyway? The answer lies in many angry comments that include “propaganda” and “brainwashing.”

So Fox News is “upset that empty-headed puppets are trying to brainwash and indoctrinate Americans?”

“Perhaps you could sue them,” Stewart quipped. “The charge could be copyright infringement.”

wearethe99percent:I drew this with a pen from work in my sketchbook. I felt moved and compelled to draw and share this piece.I and my husband, like everyone else who’ve been posting, are struggling toward an American Dream that hangs in the balance. We both stayed out of trouble, worked hard to get our degrees, and have since been looking for work to afford our student loan payments. We are not lazy. We are not asking for handouts or for redistribution of wealth. People who worked hard to earn their money deserve it, but unfortunately that’s not what’s happening here. It’s not just the banks we should be fighting, let’s not forget it was our own government who used our tax dollars to bail out these fat cats. Our government is every part as responsible for this system break down. Our own Congress cannot reach an agreement on how much of a paycut to give themselves, but have no issue doling it out to the rest of the country. Our generation, and our children’s generation will fit the bill for this greed. Universities are also to blame. The amount of money that is poured into education never makes it to education or our educators. Instead the adminitration continues to let their accounts swell, while the teachers and staff have to face pay cuts, furlough days, and loss of benefits. The students suffer the most. How are we supposed to further our education and careers, when we aren’t even given a chance, just piles of debt that continue to accrue each month? I am tired of politicians and their pointless agendas, and I’m sick of these bureaucrats and fat cats who are willing to let everyone suffer, just so they have more money to put in offshore accounts. I’m tired of my own complacency! I am a part of the 99 % and I am silent no more!occupywallst.org       occupytheworld!
