Fully fund the arts with the government. Yes, Mike, I beat the drum. Mike, march with me.

I'm poor but I do my part, unlike Mike who has a rich sugarmama. lol

NPR and PBS listeners and viewers are the most informed people, compared to those who only rely on television media and newspapers.

so what does this mean frank,
free spray-paint for everyone?
unlimited crayons, construction paper, paste and those scissors with round ends?

"Fully fund "? Do you now want to be paid to fingerpaint with your feces? "sugarmama" ?

Fully fund the arts with the government.

Yes but first explain to a truck driver or a fry cook in Des Moines why his/her taxes should go to support a mime troupe in Washington DC that he/she will never see even if they were interested in the first place?

And then you can explain to me why my taxes should go to partially subsidize a new effing football stadium for a team that is part of a multi-billion dollar industry when I couldn't care less?

What kind of fucking liberals are you guys? lol

The reason you fund art is so corporations don't take it over and you only have Lady Gaga and Charlie Sheen porn.

Sweden, Norway, Finland, they fund their shit. Amen.
