I'm a little tired and not thinking too clearly, so please forgive me.
I understood that his dad was born in Chihuahua, Mexico and never attended college. They had to live on welfare during the Depression. Was George Romney ever part of the "real elite?" If so, he rose to that position from absolute zero. How did Mitt make it, if his dad wasn't elite? Is money all it takes? He certainly didn't get into college as a "legacy."
Romney is a part of the real elite (not the contrived elite)
He has never had to struggle to survive a day in his life, all his life, "the help" have been there
for him to use.
He reeks of entitlement
Maybe I'm not making sense, but it makes sense to me.

yeah, what a terrible thing to say.
a civilized person would simply tweet about how they are going to murder somebody if they win.
but how dare somebody encourage their supporters to encourage others to vote for them too!
maybe romney should have just publicly told jews that obama wanted to put them in an oven or something? that seems to be more lefty style.
the liberal lefties are terrified and see the defeat coming so they have to panic come up with crap like this. good sign for romney.

Boy you got that straight! I will be so freaking happy when this donkey and elephant show are over!
Gary Johnson isn't going to win and I know that. At this point, I just want this crap to end.

Really? You must have never grown up watching Sesame Street. I kind of feel sorry for you man.
Here's some numbers from Forbes:
For fiscal year 2010, federal funding for PBS through CPB accounted for about 12% of PBS’ revenue. In terms of dollars, that works out to about $300 million. There’s not much wiggle room to be had: the money that actually goes to CPB is split according to a mostly statutory formula. For 2015, Congress has budgeted $445 million for CPB. That’s less than 1% of the budget. Way less. It’s about 1/100th of a 1%.
Here's the practical low-down:
..."chances are, cuts to PBS won’t kill off Sesame Street and other major programming. What will happen, realistically, is that public television stations would have to find alternate sources of funding. Larger markets, like the one I live in now, would likely survive. But chances are that those smaller markets, like the one I used to live in, would have to shut off the lights. That is, of course, the irony, since those smaller markets are the very ones that PBS was intended to serve when it was created".
I'd rather make a few less missiles and keep Sesame Street in the homes of the smaller/rural markets to help our kids.edit on 20-10-2012 by MystikMushroom because: (no reason given)

That is so disgusting and so unAmerican, and so eerily fundamentalist conservative that it creeps me right out.
