If NPR goes out of business how will we fall asleep at night?

Hmmm... great point!  But think of all the lives saved!  Those drivers on long trips, no NPR - staying awake listening to Mark Levin instead!

Leftards aren't completely ignorant - just mostly - they understand how this will play out. If this budget gets through, and it's demonstrated that we can really survive without all this spending, next year's budget is going to be even more brutal!

Well, there is still much waste to be found. However, we should all understand the democrats and GOPe will be there to fight all the waste.

Was watching a NOVA program last night.

Keep in mind the left says the KOCH brothers are evil capitalists...

"Major funding for NOVA provided by the DAVID KOCH foundation for the advancement of Science..."

(I laugh every time I hear that - it might be the only one keeping them afloat!)

What really happens.. though... the way LIBERALS fund themselves....

Prioritize to fund the projects they like FIRST, and dribble a few dollars into the "other stuff" that'll keep the money coming in.
The most vile, liberal, whacko, crazy, anti-capitalist, far left, socialist - CRAP gets funded FIRST, everytime!
Keep pumping out those agenda items, and the stuff the public actually tunes in for, "Oh, if we don't get more money, your favorite program is gonna have to be cut... sorry kids!"   I've seen it, I've heard it - and scratched my head, asking the question, over and over, why aren't we funding THIS and letting THAT slide?

Case in point:   Planned Parenthood funds ABORTIONS... first.   Mammograms... no that gets farmed out, and you can bet, is funded on a secondary basis.  But, if funding is threatened, the first thing we hear, "We can't do Mammograms!!!!"

Expect to hear the same from NEA, PBS & NPR - the programs you might say, MEH, I guess that's O.K. - those will get the axe FIRST, and the Liberal talkshow hosts, anti-American drivel will survive.  Pet projects, ie., Liberal political activism, ALWAYS gets funded first.

How are the organizations colluding with Hussein's OFA going to fund themselves?  More people need to realize that it's not as much about the number as what.  A billion dollars isn't that much in scope of current spending, but give that to an evil person and the damage can be exponential.

That's the beauty of cutting off Federal funding (they've been getting a free ride on the backs of the taxpayer!).   If they REALLY think it's ESSENTIAL... they will have to fund it themselves.   I doubt any of the NEA, PBS or NPR programming - LIBERAL programming will suffer so much as a single dime in shortfall.  However, anything with a hint of being Pro-America, Constitutional, or Conservative... is toast.

Remember, Trump said he would fully fund Planned Parenthood if they quit doing Abortions..... they flat out refused.  Hence, it's proof, their Liberal pet political causes ALWAYS get funded first - Mammogram funding is a political "tool" to get more funding for Abortions.

What organization has a reputation for killing dogs and cats?   hint:  they are not "Humane" by any stretch.

Great Lakes states aren't going to put up with Trump's nonsense about cutting funds to preserve the fifth largest fresh water supply on this planet. He's a freaking madman to think he will get away with it.

International treaties with Canada, which shares that water and has every right to a say in its use. Invasive species coming in from ships off the Ste. Lawrence (and through the antiquated Soo Locks) is a huge problem and one both nations must address to keep the lakes viable.

And we need an EPA for what? These are issues dealt with in a court when someone breaks the law.
Point is, the EPA is nothing more than an extension of Federal law, a redundancy, and waste of money for a bureaucracy out of control.
What you really need is an interstate agreement with the backing and support of Federal law, but not a "One size fits all" heavy hand of govt enforcing law that doesn't even apply to lake Michigan.

This conversation is a perfect example of why cutting anything in the federal government is so difficult. Our good friend, Quiller, is opposed to the EPA cuts in his area. This is the normal NIMB (not in my backyard) response.

So keeping the Great Lakes clean requires the EPA, governmental authority over every backyard pond in the USA - right?

Same here.
I was one of his most ardent detractors, now I find myself on the other side of the fence most times.
