John C. Wright, a brilliant science fiction author, and Christian tells why he is overjoyed that Big Bird and the other parasitic money suckers at PBS will have to find private donors.
As a man who worked, not for one bankrupt news organization, but for two, the knowledge that part of my meager paycheck went to fund my competators, and to spread lies and propoganda, was a thorn in my eye for all the years of my adult life.
Add to this that Big Bird and all his horrid crew will now have to beg for money from corporate sponsers, or even (gasp!) work for his goshdarned pay like an honest avian.
Add to this that so-called works of art like Piss Christ will not be paid for by money that would otherwise go to pay for bread to feed my children, so that the blasphemous enemy of muse and man alike who calls himself an artist will also be thrown into the marketplace to earn his keep or to starve. (Judging from the alleged quality of the alleged work, my money is on starve.)
"The departments of Commerce and Energy would see major reductions in funding, with programs under their jurisdiction either being eliminated or transferred to other agencies. The departments of Transportation, Justice and State would see significant cuts and program eliminations."
Since, to the best of anyone’s knowledge, none of the departments of Commerce, Energy, and Transportation have ever added an iota of happiness to any human life, have unloaded buckets of misery by acting as leg-irons to the economy, and have no justification whatsoever under the Constitution, this is merely delight added to ecstasy.
