Oxymoron: National Panhandler Radio And Lobbyists

Word Origin & History

oxymoron
1657, from Gk. oxymoron, noun use of neut. of oxymoros (adj.) “pointedly foolish,” from oxys “sharp” (see acrid) + moros “stupid.” Rhetorical figure by which contradictory terms are conjoined so as to give point to the statement or expression; the word itself is an illustration of the thing. Now often used loosely to mean “contradiction in terms.”

To everyone but the loony left, National Panhandler Radio is a lobbying group, and yet they have chosen to pay another firm down in DC to go to Capitol Hill and hold their cup out for more of that which there is none. It is as clear as the nose on each and every face in America that We The People of these United States of America are BROKE! There is no extra.  Heck, there isn’t even enough for the normal items in our budget, such as the defense of this Country. We are borrowing 40 cents on every dollar from foreign and hostile countries so that liberals and RINO’s can feel good about themselves. When we are debating lifting the cap on spending, at the very least, all non-essential spending should go on the chopping block first and NPR ought to have been dropped well before now They Don’t Need It And We Cannot Afford It

National Public Radio (NPR) is paying the lobbying firm Bracy, Tucker, Brown & Valanzano to defend its taxpayer funding stream in Congress, according to lobbying disclosure forms filed with the Secretary of the Senate. The taxpayer-funded radio network hired the firm in the second quarter of 2011 to work on issues regarding “funding for NPR and affiliate stations.”

It will remain unclear how much NPR is paying for these lobbying services until second quarter lobbying forms are filed. But before NPR hired the firm to represent it on funding issues, the network spent $131,666 in 2011’s first quarter on an in-house lobbyist.

NPR’s hiring of the lobbying firm comes in the wake of a public debate over whether the network should continue to receive taxpayer funds. Shortly after NPR was subjected to public humiliation due to the release of conservative Project Veritas’s sting videos, House Republicans voted to take away the network’s taxpayer funding in March. (The Senate, however, never passed a similar measure to defund NPR.)

When a majority of Americans get settled into the fact that there is no more largess to be thrown to the crowds (peasants), then we will finally be on the path to financial sustainability again. It is unacceptable that NPR should want more money at the expense of future generations so that they can pay their President more then the President of the United States 1.2M?
