That's why I pay for SiriusXM and listen to 40's On 4, 50's On 5, 60's On 6 and 70's On 7. ;) There's no doubt some of today's singers are talented, but there isn't much to distinguish them from each...

Yeah, free 300-baud dialup with text and encoded photos/videos was so much better. :rolleyes:

I have to agree. I dislike reality game shows in general, but wanted to give this one a shot. I was so disappointed and sorry I stuck it out to the end.

No, it's not, but it was the only one I had. :) I did check other videos on the website though and they are in fact generally longer than commercial TV. For example, Victoria was 1:51 (after...

And yet again you are assuming PBS would go away without the tax payer funds and it most assuredly would not. It would still remain a non-profit and operate just as it does today, only without the...

Oh, believe me I do, but that has nothing to do with tax payer funding of PBS. And those people are coerced into supporting shows I like, so as the arguments on ala carte endure. We probably offset...

No one is suggesting PBS be cut out, just eliminate the tax dollars. Major non-governmental foundations, etc., already provide the vast majority of funding and much of that is due to the non-profit...

That isn't the point. The point is that if they can afford to pay more, etc., then they don't need taxpayer support. Simply having higher salaries, etc., doesn't qualify as outlandish excess. I spent...

I disagree with tax dollars being spent on both, but then you'd have to look at any celebration or event that gets tax payer dollars. And much of that $200M was for security. I don't object to the...

That's what they say about earmarks and every small budget item out there, but at some point a group of pennies becomes a dollar. I enjoy Masterpiece and others, so if they need the money fine, but...
