    The biggest mystery in this campaign is why Hussein & Company think they have a winning issue with Big Bird? Most Americans have long wanted to stop tax dollars going to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

    The second biggest mystery is why the issue is about money:

    Big Bird Wants Out of Campaign Ad
    By Peter Nicholas

    As important as tax dollars are in this issue, Americans should be more concerned over taxpayers being forced to pay for political beliefs they do not agree with. Whether or not you agree that socialism is a religion, funding the CPB is a direct violation of the First Amendment:

    When Americans think about the first 10 words in the First Amendment they should think in terms of beliefs rather than formal religions. No American of one faith would tolerate being forced to fund another faith, yet everybody is being forced to pay for socialism’s belief system.

    As to the next 6 words:


    Nobody wants to prohibit Socialists from exercising their beliefs so long as they pay for them out of their own pockets. I know one thing for sure. Stop funding socialism with tax dollars and Socialists will disappear faster than mass exterminations could ever accomplish. Guess how many Socialists would be left if they alone had to pay for the touchy-feely garbage the government forces everybody else to pay for.

    I’ll close on a lighter note. The Big Bird cock-a-hoop Romney triggered throughout Liberaldom made me think of MO’s campaign against obesity. From what I can gather she is insisting kids eat like birds while wealthy Democrats continue to shit like elephants —— pun intended.

    To strollingbones: The First Amendment is the bigger —— the only —— question.

    To strollingbones: The size of the budget is another issue entirely. Even with a huge budget surplus —— taking a single penny from every American by force in order to pay for the propagation of socialism’s beliefs is taking a penny too much.

    I don’t know what your religion is, if any. For this discussion let’s say you are a Methodist. How do you feel about the government taking your money and giving it to Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, or any religion not of your choosing? I cannot answer for you, but I can answer for everyone else. They would scream bloody murder.

    Incidentally, Hussein is the biggest liar to ever sit in the White House. He was a liar before he got there:

    A check of Hussein’s time as president shows that his lies increased after he arrived. I suspect that Taqiyya and Kitman, better known as holy hypocrisy, had a lot to do with Hussein’s aversion to the truth.

    Don't tell Mitt! The actor who brought Big Bird to life makes $314,000 a year

    It gets better. Bill O’Reilly has been nailing Bill Moyers for years. That has been O’Reilly’s one saving grace in my book. Be sure to watch Dennis Miller's comments on Biden following the Big Bird autopsy:

    To editec: Says the three largest groups in America:

    1. Americans who resent being forced to pay for the propagation of socialism’s agenda.

    2. Americans who object to children being brainwashed with all of liberalism’s garbage; crap like environmental scare tactics, and multiculturalism.

    3. Americans who do not enjoy paying for getting ripped off.
