The folks in Sesame Street are in dire straits right now, worrying whether or not the Cookie Monster can survive his addiction without government funding. Sesame Street, which really is a place for almost lower class Americans, would be in severe hardship if it was to be so, and if Oscar is to get ill from eating trash, well…Consider him unlucky without his trusty ObamaCare.
These shocking facts became all-too-known when Presidential candidate Mitt Romney stated that, if elected, he would cut funding to the non-profit American public television network PBS.
Claiming that his decisions were a part of his plan to “stop borrowing from China”, Romney asserted during the 2012 debate that the $450 million dollars PBS receives yearly would be cut. Funnily enough, The Pentagon reportedly spends that type of money every six hours.
We try and stray this website from supporting politicians – especially American ones, with the mixed reactions and overly-patriotic death threats we receive – but could America’s next president be the capitalist who supports cutting funding to an age-old television network. $450 million may seem like a lot but not when the American government is struggling to repay its debt of nearly 16 trillion dollars. Then again, hopefully kids won’t understand that when The Count isn’t there to teach them.
To say that “a vote for Romney is a vote for freedom” is not only far-fetched, but entirely unfounded. Think about Mitt’s contacts in Hollywood and the constant demands for internet censorship. Regardless of who is the President of the United States, people will continue to blame the government and the leaders for anything and everything – whether they deserve it or not. No government or leader can give you true freedom.
Just reading through the opinions from CNN’s American community will assure you that Romney may effortlessly soar in the polls rather than contestant some commenters refer to as “the Godless Kenyan-born communist anti-Christ”.
Perhaps Obama said it best with his remarks that Romney “plans to let Wall Street run wild again, but he’s bringing the hammer down on Sesame Street.”
I have my suspicions that Big Bird is an over-sized canary. Wait, didn’t Romney supposedly have millions of dollars stored offshore in the Canary Islands?
