I've heard much worse come out of her mouth, so I just have to conclude that this wasn't a very revealing collection.
Sorry folks but calling for a cold shoulder or turning the channel--or an appeal to people who already don't contribute to PBS not to contribute some more--all these passive methods aren't going to faze them one bit. It will take a massive letter-writing campaign, plus a massive "Down with PBS" word-of-mouth campaign, plus an attitude changing campaign, before PBS will feel ANY effects at all. PBS is the sacred cow of public funding, and the powers that be of BOTH parties will never ever try to reduce the money the corporation gets, until more than half the letters these leaders get come from an enraged public. After all, any member of Congress who votes to reduce funding will be slandered and smeared as an anti-cultural troglodyte. The only cure will be to turn public opinion, similar to the way people's feelings about smoking were turned.
You must be pretty young if your memory only goes back as far as Rush Limbaugh. How about William F. Buckley in the Sixties? Will Rogers had a few things to say in his many, many books. Earlier than that, I don't know, but I seem to remember that Plato wrote on politics, as did a few of his contemporaries.

Excellent point, oldtexgal. I'm boycotting Mexico starting immediately.

This is utterly appalling, and if it doesn't make you loathe Obama all the more, then you are deficient.

Amen.
No one is asking, "What business has the government to do with this?" The fact that this was even thought of as something the taxpayers should pay for is obscene. Facebook has obviously already done its own research anyway. I can only imagine that the leftist trending of transgenders needs to be stroked into a stronger inclination toward voting for democrats.
It wasn't really a "third" party unless you omit the number "2" as you count--1st, 3rd, the others..." The "2nd" party had already died and was no longer an option.
Drawing a picture of a gun is not part of his putative "behavior problem".
