The make-believers in Hollywood are still skipping merrily down the yellow brick road while many Americans are just getting by. While they may have to put the second Rolls Royce in the garage to dampen their flagrant ostentatiousness, REAL people are suffering, making REAL sacrifices.
Our annual deficit exceeds $1.3 trillion! "BIG DEAL, print more dollars," they scoff. Our national debt now exceeds $16 trillion! "SO WHAT. It ain't our worry, they chortle. Just keep your damn hands off BIG BIRD, our beloved symbol of junior hollywood fantasyland."
Solution: Make BIG BIRD a true lifetime gift of Hollywood. Gather your members and write a check for the entire PBS amount. It won't hurt a bit.
