Re: “Louis C.K. calls Kansas City 'a terrible place' on The Tonight Show (video)

He's a douche bag from New York City (that's not a shit-hole???). So who cares what he thinks?

Re: “Sam Brownback's crusade against the Kansas Arts Commission

Ours is a market economy. People vote with their dollars. If something is worthwhile, they will spend money on it. Government supplementation of programs keeps lots of things around that 'we the people' don't really want or need (otherwise we'd be supporting them sufficiently). How else would so-called "artists" get to fling piss or shit at a portrait of Virgin Mary and call it "art"? Or how would this bunch of crap ever exist? http://bertc.com/weird/index.h....

Re: “Sam Brownback's crusade against the Kansas Arts Commission

Carol Hoopes' comment is telling, though jaded and way overstated. I'm a supporter of the Arts. Even served on a board for the Arts. Government monetary support for 'the Arts' has been justified for all Carol's reasons and more (though I think "freedom" as a reason is just plain nutty). But the fact is, they don't hold true. Even with government-funded Arts, mothers and the tax payers cry "why are my kids on the streets, getting pregnant, and doing drugs." The answer is: You're a shitty parent because you expect and rely on SOCIETY to raise your kid and teach him or her morals.

Look, we can't have everything we want. We have to prioritize the allocation of our resources. A market economy is the absolute best way to do that. Quit playing the victim when your favorite isn't funded BY SOMEONE ELSE. If you truly believe in the Arts, quit your whining, get up off your fat ass and DO something to promote them.
