    Okay, it's about time people take to the streets to protest spending cuts.

    1. Protest "spending cuts", not "austerity". Austerity means nothing in and of itself. Cuts mean you're going to lose something.
    2. ACORN is not a traditional establishment. They were active fairly recently, and while they helped tremendously, their role could easily be picked up by another organization.
    3. The CPB only receives 1-2% of its funding from the Federal government. It is possible for it to exist without it.
