I think this is political madness, if it is not it should be, all I can say is thank you JESUS.


(Reuters) - Plans to save Big Bird, the fuzzy yellow character on U.S. public television's "Sesame Street," from possible extinction are taking shape in the form of a puppet-based protest next month dubbed the "Million Muppet March."

The demonstration is planned for November 3 at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., three days before the general election.
ca.reuters.com...
Before the presidential debate between Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney had concluded on October 3, two men who had never met each floated the Million Muppet March idea on social media. They immediately united to defend public broadcasting.


I hope to see you all there.

Who knew?

Big Bird has bigger problems than Mitt Romney
While the GOP candidate may want to ax government funding for PBS, the Sesame Workshop has larger financial troubles.

Oh the humanity

I predict disaster for the march as follows:



The Muppets are prone to this.

NOOOO The Owners of Sesame Street are getting more then $300million in gross revenue from merchandising while PBS get's tax deductions as a non-profit AND Grant money.
It just doesn't seem right.

That's all Romney was pointing out.

Lot's of earmarks for special interests for either party.

Do you REALLY think Romney won't forget his friends if elected too?


Ask G.E. CZAR how that's working for him? I can't even believe that Republicans haven't challanged Obama ONCE with GE just claiming they only opened up jobs in China to expand.

We're doomed either party.

CHEERS!

As someone mentioned already, they have almost $300 million in assets, the sesame street program can float PBS by itself, most of PBS's funding is from donations, trusts, and organizations/groups of that nature. I'm sorry but these people protesting have to be brain dead to not realize this. Hello....the Arthur Show? There are so many children's programs doing amazing on PBS that could easily float the channel.

I don't really think the federal government should be giving money to any TV or media in any fashion. This just leads to conflict of interests, and potential government influence over content.

this is sad...people in this country will rally for a fictional bird, but not for their own freedoms

I agree.
The media already acts as the biggest propaganda machine in the world for government. It gets financed by advertising dollars. Why should we pay for it twice?

Ill tell you how this can be taken.

Either TPTB are thinking that they have an easier way to show us what we really mean, as the pic above, or that the world would take us as more of a joke.

This will be televised all over the world, do you really think that people around the world would know that these were even puppets? I can see people sitting in front of their t.v.'s saying "Wow, those Americans really do look a bit different" , and the response, "No dear, you just never noticed, they always looked like that".

In a sychromystic way this is a simple reminder that we have been puppets ALL along, and this could not have been a more degrading way to show us.

WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! THIS IS THE WORLD IN ALL ITS OPEN GLORY, TO SHOW US THAT WE HAD NO IDEA!!

Peace, NRE.
