You think NPR is essential? Why? What on earth did the country do before NPR. Must of been hell.

IF your quibble is about misuse of money(ie LU) then I agree with you. What that has to do with NPR is beyond me. IF you want to know the truth, we need to cut spending by 50percent. Government is bloated.

No AC, I do not think NPR is essential, but it is a really great source of information. I am saying that cutting something that wasn't even receiving much $ to begin with is just a scam and yes, things do need to be cut and yes the government is spending too much on crap that doesn't help people. I think NPR helps millions of people get information and news and to cut this along with cutting many other programs that help people, especially poor people, like WIC, Planned parenthood and other types of programs is just like cutting parsley off of plate of meat and potatoes which are military and the like, which ends up cutting NOTHING and does NOTHING at all to help the huge budget crisis.

Just an excuss for the government to run these supposed Christian schools. They have to use approved curriculum or lose money thus students.

So what does this have to do with Liberty University? Why do you think NPR is going to disappear because it loses its Federal Funding, that is only 5 percent of their budget. None of what you are complaining about has anything to do with Liberty University.

You used them as a lame scapegoat for your anger over things you politically believe in that are being cut. Get used to it. Until someone can figure out how to pay for everything we are all going to be losing stuff we politically support but can not afford. Have you been asleep for the last 10 years?

NPR might as well be called "National Jewish Public Radio". I wouldn't give them a fucking dime to help them ram their zionist agenda down my throat. They don't go 10 minutes without mentioning Israel, the middle east or having Jewish "expert" speaking on some inane topic.

Fuck NPR.

Why does this matter? If you were a conservative you would have the same issue with the countless "liberal" schools.

Is this really important to you? This really alters or changes your perception? Or you feel it will be an "ah ha" moment?

It's not about being a conservative school, it's about being an Evangelical Christian school with a whole department teaching Creationism as science, should NOT BE FUNDED BY THE GOVERNMENT. Bible school should be funded by churches and people who attend them. I understand the students are the ones who get the loans, but all the $ goes to Bible classes from the tax payers.

I am also trying to get at the point that the $ that is being cut is all from all the programs that are meant to help people to help themselves (in news/information, nutrition/wellness, health, job stability/unions, etc.,) and the especially cutting programs that help the ones who are poor. Tax money should also not be spent 50+% on military budgets, especially when they are not defending us americans, but defending the money interests of the federal reserve. I hope that clears up my issues with the cutting of NPR.

military spending...informative article and website, hopefully not too righty or lefty for anyone..... seems pretty middle path to me?

I say cut it all. My point was simple asking you to be fair. Which you appear to be doing, somewhat.
