The First Black Airmen

Although I support the federal government defunding NPR (on principle), I do, even as a conservative, appreciate some of their program, material you would not likely find elsewhere. (They are very good at covering jazz, for example.) Today's program on the first African-American fighter pilot unit, which fought in WW II was gripping. I highly encourage you to listen to it and be thankful for these brave men.

I would think a conservative would support the Constitution's mandate to "support the general welfare":

"The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States..."

That covers NPR?

Sure - an educated and informed populace evidently contributes to the general welfare.
