Romney is determined to lose, will cut PBS

Post  Progurt on Wed Aug 15, 2012 3:27 pm

From a Fortune interview, in his own words:
Mitt Romney Interview
Q: You've promised to cap government spending at 20% of GDP. Specifically where will you cut?
A: There are three major areas I have focused on for reduction in spending. These are in many cases reductions which become larger and larger over time. So first there are programs I would eliminate. Obamacare being one of them but also various subsidy programs -- the Amtrak subsidy, the PBS subsidy, the subsidy for the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities. Some of these things, like those endowment efforts and PBS I very much appreciate and like what they do in many cases, but I just think they have to strand on their own rather than receiving money borrowed from other countries, as our government does on their behalf.
...
With regards to the military, I believe that we will find enormous opportunities for efficiency and cost savings in the military. I do not anticipate those savings will be able to be used to reduce the deficit but instead will be necessary to increase the number of active-duty personnel by approximately 100,000, to restore our military equipment which has been destroyed in conflict, and to invest in the coming technologies of warfare. I do not believe the world is so safe that we can turn away from our investment in national security.
So, the Republican plan for deficit reduction:

with each generation the aristocrats kids get snottier, more spoiled and self entitled, to the point that the proletariat of my generation is becoming self entitled. A recipe for disaster in the next decade or two, as they spoiled ass brats of these spoiled ass brats like Romney and W completely forget the lessons of placation and pacification of the proletariat, and tear asunder the programs and laws which have propped up capitalism for so long.

My advice, Si vis pacem, para bellum, winter is coming with the unstoppable force of the seasons.

There's a storm coming, Mr. Wayne. You and your friends better batten down the hatches, because when it hits, you're all gonna wonder how you ever thought you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us.
Aside from the wealthy entitlement issue, one has to question the wisdom of someone whose plan for the budget is killing Sesame Street and growing the military. I have to wonder what he'll do next to try and keep from winning.
