Indeed, follow the money: Democrat Politicians and Entertainers certainly have genetic noses for it, like bloodhounds after... blood. I guess whatever matters most is what one hypersensitizes to; nothing else matters. The irony is that the referenced cash is siphoned out of taxpayers' pockets, then redistributed to friends and supporters.

$420 million sure could fix a few bridges... Hey isn't that about the same amount that George Clooney made on his last movie? Idea...Maybe the movie industry could be self-funded.

Maybe we should call it "alternative entertainment"

It's no different than the unions give us money (raises) we tell our members who to vote for.

And the same is true for our education system. Protect the teacher's union at the expense of the students and truth.
The corruption runs deep.

Hmmm ... Sounds like NPR which is subsidized by the government and is overwhelmingly Liberal in it’s philosophy and programming.

I HATE this cherry picking by Andy. No doubt in my mine he gets "donation".
