If you feel so strongly about the continuance of PBS, get out your checkbook and send them some money. Easy peasy.

Nice churlish challenge from a Remonstrate Endlessly For Conservatism regular, I see. My kids are 35 and 38 now, and when they were delighted by Big Bird and Elmo, I had very little money to donate to much of anything. Once they outgrew Sesame Street and I started to discover things like Nova, Newshour, and Frontline, donating became easier when my pay increased and my wife went back to work. PBS has gotten a 3-digit donation from us every year for several years. Ok, Ok so it starts with a $1, lol.)

I'm not smart enough to know all the ins and outs of what "borrow from China to pay _______" means. Despite your opposite POV, however, I have very strong reservations about obstructing PBS funding for the simple reason that millions from 9 months to 90 years enjoy what it provides so much.
