RE: Kiss PBS goodbye
About PBS: who decides what is good for poor people? poor people? those hard working people who pay for it? or somebody else?

Are you telling me that as soon as we don't have NEA it will be no more arts?!!
I also have a question: what arts are we talking about?
Once I watched local theater musical, I wanted to cry and leave.
You were free to leave - it is a free country.

Art is subjective. Not everyone sees the same thing, the same way you do.
You said, others appeared to enjoy it and possibly they got something out of it.

My house is in a public school district and I directly pay local taxes to fund the whole school district. Plus I pay extra because there's a public elementary school right in my neighborhood.
I don't have any children - why should I pay for that?
What if someone else's children aren't learning what I want them to know?

***
A democracy doesn't just cater to people who can afford something or because there are more people who want a particular thing.
Wealth or a majority carries no particular favor in a democracy. In a democracy the rights of the minority are protected.

You can leave a public performance anytime you don't agree with it.
If you want to deprive others of a performance because you don't agree with it, you are denying them their possible happiness. (which you are free to walk away from)
Maybe you are also denying them the ability to decide whether they like this performance or not.
You could also be denying some their right to get up and leave the performance.

A democratic community is not only about you, it's about you and the other guy - who you may not even know.

Personally, I don't mind at all paying extra for public schools in my district.
Yes, even though I don't have children.
I know that someone else's child's education is important.

A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move to higher levels. ~ Albert Einstein

You are wrong to consider money as sacred. It is anything but. And you diminish your own sacred scriptures by describing money in the same words. You didn't mean "sacred", you probably meant "precious" or something like that.

So, what is the role of the individual within society according to Democrats and what is the role of the individual within society according to Republicans?

The role of of the individual within society according to Jesus is from each according to their ability and to each according to their need. He couldn't have been any clearer on this.

People who have studied it and know what works. People like Lloyd Pendleton and Housing First.

If I am wrong, please, tell me. It is possible I still don't understand what you are talking about.

What I mean is, that spending government money to support the arts is not wrong in any way. I would say it's a lot more worthwhile than spending government money on things to kill people with.

Also, parody is important. The jester is the only one who is allowed to call the King a fool to his face.

The socialists plagiarized it. 'Cause they're too pussy to go full commando.

Acts 4:32–35: 32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. 33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. 34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, 35 And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.

When money are earned honestly they are too sacred to waste them. Money that are spent on food to feed hungry then these particular money are sacred. Money that are spent on medicine to help sick person to survive are sacred money.
LDS people see many things the way the rest of the world doesn't see them.
For example, LDS person will tell you that to wash husband's dirty socks is spiritual experience when it is done out of love and with happiness and desire to serve.
