    balance the Federal budget, yesiree. We just can't afford to spend the many billions of dollars we shove at those incredibly wealthy artists and musicians and playwrights and poets and filmmakers. We need to give all that dough to the Republican job-creators and the defense industries instead.

    •  Hey yeah, great idea! (1+ / 0-)

      Why not dumb down the American public even more? Who needs culture anyway? I mean, Mitt Romney's favorite book is Battlefield Earth by L.Ron Hubbard, and Ryan gets his philosophy from by Atlas Shrugged, so why should America need anything better than that?

      Let us rather spend our scarce dollars where they will do the most good -- more Chicky-fil franchises and more wars in the Middle East. Walmarts and Megachurches, now that's the way to a brighter future!
