Question: Do you donate to PBS?

#21
It's not the way you think, for the most part donations from viewers are matched with some tax dollars, in this example taxes account for about 26% of total funds to Illinois PBS. you have no right to complain if you aren't a member.
Yeah, what the hell, I'm really stupid. They get lots of tax dollars, but I have no right to complain. Just pay these clowns and liars and propagandists like Amy Goodman and the rest with tax dollars and I just shut the hell up about it because you say it is none of my business.

Why do you suppose it is called PUBLIC broadcasting????????

My point is, if you want to change it become a member and have some influence. But it is public, and that means that others are allowed to have their opinions expressed, even those you disagree with.

I don't agree with everything I see on PBS or FOX news. But they have a right to their opinion, no matter how wrong you and I feel they are.

Isn't PBS supported with tax dollars? A compulsory donation? I would be concerned about voluntarily donating, with shows like "In The Life" and "Democracy Now, DemocracyNow.org The War and Peace Report with Amy Goodman." Maybe I watch not for pleasure or education or information but rather to keep tabs on what the wackos and enemies are up to. Our local PBS news here in the bay area is just queers pushing their own high taxes more welfare socialist agenda. No, I am not planning on sending in a check anytime soon; thanks for the suggestion though.
I cannot approve of what you say because of the homophobia of your response. I'm happy to hear your opinions on politics and news even though you are on a different side of the ideological spectrum from me, but kindly refrain from open bigotry on threads I have started. That's all it will take for me to engage with you.
