Although I do not always agree with Bill, his sense of humor is so outrageous that it reminds me of my own.  He invariably leaves me in stiches.  Therefore, I bring him to you, whenever I can find him in a video format available to all.

Maher

Last night [Friday], Bill Maher closed with a New Rule explaining just why right-wing radio is so abundant.

"They don’t want to go to the moon. They want to howl at it!" I could not have said it better.

I don’t get to bring you this as often as I like, as I seldom find it complete in a format everyone can view.  He’s usually disrespectful, and sometimes even downright offensive, but always funny as hell.  Enjoy!

Maher

HBO’s Bill Maher probably didn’t win any friends among his fellow wealthy Americans when he suggested that not only do we need an improvement in the minimum wage, but perhaps we should also have a "maximum wage" to keep these whining plutocrats from highjacking our democracy…

I need to get some of that B & J Obama Ice Cream!! Frankly, I think the maximum wage is a great idea. What do you think might be an appropriate limit?

I’m writing for tomorrow, a holy day in the Church of the Ellipsoid Orb.  My Broncos receive the honor of the Sunday Night Worship with the only undefeated congregation, and the Bronco’s long time division rival, the Chiefs.  I guess I don’t have to tell you I’ll be meditating.

Tomorrow’s took me 4:35 (average 4:29).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

It could not be more clear that blatant election theft is the intent of Fartfuhrer Walker and his Koch sucking cronies.

From AP: Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who played a central role in the government’s response to the financial crisis of 2008-2009, is joining private equity firm Warburg Pincus LLC.

The firm announced Saturday that Geithner will serve as its president and managing director starting March 1.

Am I the only one not surprised that Timmy the Tool moved right in to a position as a vulture capitalist, running a hedge fund?  I say again, Obama should have kept his own advisors instead of hiring Hillary’s people.

From Raw Story: Friday night, during his weekly “New Rules” segment, Bill Maher slammed the U.S. Supreme Court — and in particular Chief Justice John Roberts — for pretending that decisions like the Citizens United ruling and gutting the Voting Rights Act (VRA) won’t have any consequences.

 

Bill was less funny than usual, and it’s not just the South, but he sure has the five Injustices of SCROTUS pegged!!

I bring you clips of Bill Maher, whenever I can, because if there is a humorous equivalent to the panic button, he manages to push it every time!

Maher

Friday night on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” host Bill Maher offered a very simple tip to the Republican Party on their outreach efforts. Particularly when it comes to young people, Maher said, the GOP needs to realize that pot deregulation is actually a fundamentally conservative cause and that Millennials are never going to go for the gun thing…

What can I say? On a scale of one to ten, he’s not only 100% hilarious, but also, today he’s even 100% right!

From YouTube: Oh those money grubbing hypocrites!!

"Do Harm!" is the hypocritical oath of Tom "Dr. No" Coburn (R-OK). Now he, Bought Bitch Mitch (R-KY), and their money grubbing cronies (R-0.1%) want Northeastern money! Tell them to take a long walk off a short pier! As for Leg Hound Harry being an asshole, if an asshole like Coburn says so, Harry must still be wearing his Obamaballs!!

What can I say? When they do Bill Maher, count me in! LMAO!!

From Daily Kos:

Here we go again. As explained by Igor Volsky of ThinkProgress:

On Friday morning, CNN anchor Carol Costello challenged Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) to substantiate her claim that HealthCare.gov will endanger Americans’ medical privacy. The host pushed the Congresswoman to specify which medical details enrollees would have to turn over to the federal government, causing Blackburn to become visibly uncomfortable and unsure as she strung together various buzzwords about privacy.

The exchange originated from a question Blackburn herself leveled at the primary contractors responsible for HealthCare.gov during a House Energy & Commerce Committee hearing on Thursday. Blackburn asked the witnesses why some of their employees had access to “the database servers storing the enrolling information” and suggested that they were in violation of The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), the law that guarantees “federal protections for individually identifiable health information held by covered entities and their business associates and gives patients an array of rights with respect to that information.”

 

Blackburn was busted, as she was clearly caught in a lie. But she continued to parrot the talking points she had been taught, despite having no idea what she was talking about. The medical records that involve HIPPA come into play only after a consumer purchases a plan, and they never even pass through healthcare.gov.

I’m writing for tomorrow, day 16 of the Republican Shutdown, with an ears on the news as House Republicans try yet again to snatch confrontation from the jaws of compromise.  Agent Orange can’t even move his own legislation.  Normally I would swap in a new poll, but as this one remains so relevant,  I’ll let it ride for now.

That’s what a call a Republican Solution. Impeach Obama for the House Republicans’ crime.

From Common Dreams: Next year’s benefit increase for Social Security recipients is projected to be one of the smallest increases ever, according to a new analysis by the Associated Press.

“I find it incomprehensible that any serious person would believe that a 1.5 percent COLA is too generous and would want to enact a chained CPI which would make these COLAs even lower,” said Sen. Sanders. (Photo: Dawn V Storm/cc/flickr) The AP projects that the cost of living adjustment (COLA) for the 58 million Americans who rely on Social Security will raise just 1.5 percent, meaning a $17-monthly increase. That would mark the second year in a row of "one of the lowest raises since automatic adjustments were adopted in 1975."

“This [COLA] is not enough to keep up with inflation, as it affects seniors,” the Washington Post quotes Max Richtman, who heads the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, as saying. “There are some things that become cheaper but they are not things that seniors buy.

Speaking as just one Senior, rent, food and health care make up more than 3/4 of my budget. My rent is up 4.95%, my groceries are up 11%, and my Medicare Advantage premium is up 4.5%. The paltry 1.5% increase won’t begin to cover that.  Now Republicans claim that my COLA is too beg and demand chained CPI to reduce it more.

Bill Maher is a very funny man so I bring you his clips whenever I can find one.  Enjoy!

Maher

Friday night on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” host Bill Maher pointed out that unlike most of the country, California’s economy is surging ahead, thanks to the efforts of the state Democratic Party and veteran Gov. Jerry Brown (D). California is going to drag the rest of the country kicking and screaming into the present, he said, if it can…
