"Million Muppet March"
planned to defend U.S.
backing for PBS

Plans to save Big Bird, the fuzzy yellow character on U.S. public television's "Sesame Street," from possible extinction are taking shape in the form of a puppet-based protest next month dubbed the "Million Muppet March." The demonstration is planned for November 3 at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., three days before the general election. Before the presidential debate between Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney had concluded on October 3, two men who had never met each floated the Million Muppet March idea on social media. They immediately united to defend public broadcasting.

Comments:
The perfect ending to 0bama's campaign. Mindless puppets marching into a political wilderness that has the potential to last for generations.

People are struggling to put food on the table, tired because they have to work more than one job and these idiots think that marching with puppets are gonna keep Obama in office so that people will continue to struggle.

I'm sure that Mitt and Paul can take 15 minutes and show the people who pay the freight for this stuff, that would be the American Taxpayer, just how much money PBS makes off their various shows and the merchandise. It would wake up the dead, for sure.

FTA: "Chris Mecham, 46, a university student in Idaho...". If I were a 46 year old university student I would be crawling through the snow uphill both ways to vote for Mitt Romney and to defeat Barack Obama.

Big Bird can move to a regular channel, find sponsors and support himself.
Everybody has to grow up sometime.

OH PLEASE let this happen! Let everyone have a chance to point out how 1 percenter BIG BIRD, star of the most successful merchandising franchise IN THE HIStORY OF THE UNIVERSE has no need of taxpayer cash! And let America be treated to a couple of days of images of the union thugs, crackheads, Codepinko lunatics, and Occupy Sesame Street psychos marching in the streets while the Middle East burns down and more layoffs are announced....

PBS has endless donation drives, is not entirely non-commercial, and has philanthropic
donors, all in addition to the funds it receives from the government. But somehow they will cease to exist if the Government funding is reduced or eliminated. Well my suggestion is just find a few more commercial donors and let the taxpayers off the hook. I have no problem with their broadcasting, but they can easily
remain viable without the government prop.

Are Muppet`s on the endangered species list? If so, they should not be exploited for political purposes.

Where is the ACLU and Southern Poverty Law Center on protecting their rights?

More democrat use and abuse. Muppet`s beware!

Are you serious? Big Bird is a millionaire, or is it billionaire? Time for the Big one to pay his fair share.

I will be cheering loudly when PBS funding is cut, not to mention the roar when NPR funding is cut and must pay for their own Leftist propaganda.

Yeah, right. This will fizzle. If it goes off at all, attendence will be pitiful and the trash left behind will be expotentially higher than the participants.

Tens of Palestinian Arab youths rioted at the Temple Mount Sunday morning, after police limited Muslim access to the Mount after another series of clashes on Saturday night. (snip)Five Arab youths were arrested late Saturday night, after they tried to scale the eastern wall of the Temple Mount compound and were found with tear gas in their possession. The teens were taken in for questioning. Police Commander Yossi Pariente made the decision to limit access to the Mount early Sunday, announcing that only Muslims with a blue teudat zehut, or Israeli ID card, would be allowed to enter the Mount for

First-time movie producer and mom-to-be Chelsea Clinton has premiered a short film at the Tribeca Film Festival. Clinton is the executive producer of the short “Of Many,” a documentary about the friendship of two religious leaders at New York University. One is rabbi, the other is an imam. Clinton was previously an assistant vice provost at NYU. The 34-minute film made its Tribeca debut Thursday night. The screening was attended by the 34-year-old Clinton and her father, former President Bill Clinton. Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday that she and her husband, Marc Mezvinksy, are expecting their first child this fall.

Clinton White House’s Conspiracy
Theory of Right-Wing Conspiracy Theories

If Bill Clinton’s political camp was known for believing the right wing was out to get him, then this undated memo from his administration codified his team’s suspicions. The memo was released today in the latest, thousands-of-pages-long batch of Clinton White House documents to be posted online by the William J. Clinton Presidential Library & Museum. The National Archives have been releasing tranches of Clinton documents, previously withheld under the Presidential Records Act, every two weeks this spring. Reportedly authored by Chris Lehane, then a young White House aide who would later serve as press secretary for

KUALA LUMPUR - About 100 Malaysian Muslim activists protested on Friday outside the US embassy against the coming visit by President Barack Obama, denouncing him as an enemy of Islam. The demonstration underscored the delicate nature of Obama´s trip to Muslim-majority Malaysia, which will make him the first siting US president to visit in nearly half a century, a period marked by mutual distrust. The protesters marched to the embassy in Kuala Lumpur from a nearby mosque after Friday afternoon prayers, shouting "God is great" and "Obama is the enemy of the Prophet Muhammad." They also bore placards and banners

This is not a joke, but it is funny. It´s also practical. Argentina´s National Institute for Agricultural Technology (INTA) has invented a way to convert cow flatulence into usable energy, and it involves putting a plastic backpack on a cow. In other words, cow fartpacks are here.(snip)Here´s how the fartpacks work: tubes run from the backpack into the cows´ rumen (or biggest digestive tract). They extract about 300 liters of methane a day, which is enough to run a car or a fridge for about 24 hours.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
