Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I more or less agree with this. If you had said "we don't do enough to support the arts" instead of "we don't support the arts" I wouldn't have asked for the reply. Absolute statements particularly about the US (as I am a US citizen) are a good way to provoke me.

The DoD budget is, I think, the most damaging component of the US government. It can't be reduced even by the executive branch, as Clinton discovered. "Managing" the demands of the DoD during a prolonged energy crisis or a decline in US economic power worries me more than those two events themselves due to the DoD's unstoppable inertia.

you are the media you consume.
