That could never happen here.A sobering reminder of the importance of government support for the arts...
Afraid Bruce Lee is rather before my time, though it's remarkable how ubiquitous he remains in popular culture to this day.

I'm sure our dgold was only referring to Lee's pre-Hollywood heyday while he was fanboying over his "perfect body."this from the guy whose list of anticipated movies only includes juvenile Hollywood blockbusters
It's even worse than that. Our toddler-in-chief is now trying to mandate federal architecture:That could never happen here.
Thankfully it's not generally a left/right thing (I would guess more of a libertarian weirdo thing plus Trump) so it hasn't amounted to anything more than another MESSAGING operation. But the message is very clear.
"For the third time in as many years, the White House has proposed a federal budget that would shutter the National Endowment of the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting - which supports PBS and NPR - and the Institute for Museum and Library Services. Like last year, the plan would provide small appropriations for each agency to facilitate their orderly demise."
"President Donald Trump called for eliminating these agencies in his first two budget plans, but the Republican-led Congress funded them both times, with the NEA, NEH and IMLS each seeing small increases in 2019."
The Trump administration has again proposed the elimination of federal funding for the arts and humanities, public television and radio, libraries and museums.www.chicagotribune.com
