As I have said many times, I like to share Bill Maher clips with you almost whenever I can, because he is not only spot on 90% of the time, but also, because he’s funny as hell.  Unfortunately for us, Fecal Dump Trump and TRUSed Uranus Cruz, not to mention other Republicans, provide him an endless stream of material for ridicule.

Maher

Admitting that he has a secret passion for tabloid magazines that dispense tidbits of inside information on celebrities, Real Time host Bill Maher ticked off a selection from his own 25 things you didn’t know about GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz.

Using a recent article in US magazine that disclosed that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton enjoys hot sauce on her meals, Maher’s writers came up with a similar fun fact list for the Texas senator.

“We have something called ‘equal time’ in America so now the other candidates are getting their 25 things you don’t know about me,” Maher explained before sharing a few…

I’m waiting for Lu to come for my shower.  She’s already over an hour late.  I’ll probably be scarce this week, as it’s 6 days until Infernal Revenue Day, I still have both personal taxes and taxes for my prison volunteer organization to do, and I also have three appointments, and a grocery delivery day this week,

Short Takes:

From Daily Kos: San Antonio Independent School District Officer Joshua Kehm was captured on video brutally body-slamming a 12-year-old girl who attends Rhodes Middle School.

This is the Republican way to run schools and teach children,

From Alternet: When considering major themes in American history, which he often covers, filmmaker Ken Burns put racism at the top of the list.

 

I fully agree, but I think we had driven racism into the closet, before the Republican Party adopted it and brought it back into the mainstream.

From Crooks and Liars: Real Time host Bill Maher during his New Rules segment this Friday explains to what’s left of the "sane" wing of the Republican party why they should vote for Hillary Clinton this election cycle and focus on rebuilding their party instead. If we wind up with Clinton and Trump in the general, I expect a lot of the so-called "GOP establishment" will do exactly that.

 

And a bonus!!

Gotta love Bill!

Yesterday Lu never showed up.  She called early this morning and said she will be here by Noon today.  In the process, she screwed up my holiday.  Tomorrow, I have an Ophthalmologist appointment, expect to be gone over half the day, and expect my vision to be blurry, when I return. I shall try to post a Personal Update, but if you hear nothing from me until Tuesday, please don’t worry.

That’s three big wins for Bernie, cutting Hillary’s lead by 37+ (Washington incomplete) delegates. To win > 50% of the pledged delegates, Bernie needs 1051 more, and Hillary needs 783 more. To win the nomination, Bernie needs 1,378 more delegates, and Hillary needs 670 more delegates.

From Daily Kos (Classic 3/2012): Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner (D) isn’t happy with bills that seek to control women’s access to contraception and abortion. She has joined a trend across the nation by introducing a bill that would require men seeking a prescription for erectile dysfunction drugs to see a sex therapist, receive a cardiac stress test and "get a notarized affidavit signed by a sexual partner affirming impotency." Sex therapists would be required to present the option of "celibacy as a viable lifestyle choice.”

Isn’t it too bad that it didn’t pass? Winking smile

This weekend I have a special treat for you.  I have two clips from Bill Maher.  Although I may not always like the evangelical manner in which he proselytizes his atheist religion, he’s so funny, and so accurate about virtually everything else, that I bring him to you, whenever I can.  In the first clip, Bill gives us a Trump dump.

Maher

Donald Trump’s lies are largely to blame for his supporters’ anger and the increasingly ugly scenes at his campaign rallies, according to Bill Maher.

The "Real Time with Bill Maher" host called out the GOP front-runner on Friday for his repeated falsehoods, just after a Trump rally at the University of Illinois was canceled amid security fears.

"There is a lot of anger there, but can we just get to what he says? Because a lot of the reason why people are angry is because he lies, horribly, like they all do at the debates," Maher said. "Nobody checks them on it. There’s that old saying, ‘Dance like no one’s watching.’ He lies like no one is fact-checking. And no one does."…

Is he spot-on, or what!!

In the second, he goes after lefties.  Bill Maher ended Friday’s episode of Real Time by calling on supporters of both Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to work together for the common good.

 

I could not agree with him more.  I’m a Bernie supporter, but I have not trashed Hillary, nor will I.  Whichever of them wins, I will be fully supporting that person, because to do otherwise is to support a National Socialist Plutocrat or an insane Fascist Dominionist.  Talk of staying home or voting Green is sheer lunacy, because the only way to keep a Republican out of the White House is to fill it with a Democrat.

Last night I dealt with the Republican debate in the only intelligent way possible.  I didn’t watch.  Furthermore, George threatened me that, if I filled him with puke again, like I did last time, he would refuse to interface with Stumpy.  I don’t need to have watched to know that the Derby was made of of lies, hate and affronts to human decency from one end to the other.  Here’s the Gray Lady’s analysis, followed by some interesting video.

0207Debate

Senator Marco Rubio of Florida was hammered as callow, ambitious and lacking in accomplishment during the Republican presidential debate here on Saturday night, as Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey led an all-out assault to try to halt Mr. Rubio’s growing momentum ahead of the critical New Hampshire primary on Tuesday.

Mr. Rubio, facing the fiercest attacks yet of the Republican race after his strong third-place finish in the Iowa caucuses, looked rattled at times and faltered as he pushed back with scripted lines about President Obama that Mr. Christie mocked mercilessly. While the Republicans clashed on issues like abortion and torture, the concerted effort to take down Mr. Rubio dominated the debate.

“You have not been involved in a consequential decision where you had to be held accountable — you just simply haven’t,” Mr. Christie told Mr. Rubio early in the debate. Charging Mr. Rubio with taking credit for policies but then skipping Senate votes on them, he said, “That’s not leadership. That’s truancy.”

The scorn aimed at Mr. Rubio, a 44-year-old first-term senator, came as voters in New Hampshire and nationwide are still taking the measure of him, though he is well positioned to surge nationally if he has a strong showing in the primary here. Still, a Boston Globe/Suffolk University poll last week indicated there was still fluidity in the New Hampshire electorate: 33 percent of Republican primary voters here said they might change their minds before Tuesday…

After Iowa, I’m not surprised to see a pig pile on Border Booter, the Latino that hates Latinos.  He must be flat as a pancake, after PIGnocchio piled-on!

Now you may be wondering how I could have come up with the interesting video I promised at the outset.  Since I’m too kind to assault you with a Clown Car Destruction Derby VIII video. I have a clip for you on an unrelated subject that IS interesting!

Go Bernie!

Now isn’t it time that the Clown Car was destroyed?

As I have said before, Bill Maker is so funny that I forgive his evangelical atheism, because he’s right on virtually everything else.  Here he interviews Gloria Steinem.

0206MaherSteinem

In a wide ranging — and alternately serious and funny — interview with HBO host Bill Maher, feminist icon Gloria Steinem addressed the myth that a woman can “have it all,” saying that is impossible for both men and women.

Steinem is promoting her new book, “My Life on the Road,” saying that it where she has spent most of her time.

“The road used to be a male province for no good reason. It should be everybody’s place, ” she explained. “But also the road was thought to be more dangerous. But, statistically speaking, home is the most dangerous place for a woman,” she added, alluding to domestic violence…

I have to disagree with one thing.  One of my functions with SDS in New York Coty in the 1960s was to liaise with other organizations, which is how I came to know several famous people.  In that role, I met Gloria on a couple of occasions, and contrary to what she now says, she has mellowed with age and now seems quite likeable.

Because Bill Maker is such a funny guy, because his views on most subjects are usually spot on, and because he is almost as irreverent as I am, I bring him to you at almost every opportunity.

Maher2

Real Time host Bill Maher closed his show on Friday by sounding almost nostalgic for the era of GOP “zombie lies.”

“In a very short time, Republicans have gone beyond even the ‘zombie lie’ to just making sh*t up,” he marveled.

He singled out presidential candidate Carly Fiorina’s insistence that she watched video showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing how to harvest the brain of a “fully-formed fetus on [a] table,” a charge she has defended despite all evidence to the contrary proving her wrong. ‘’…

0124BloodyBullseyeBarbie

Let me begin by clarifying why I call Sarah Palin “Bloody Bullseye Barbie”, lest we forget.  She put the map shown above on her Facebook page.  She placed one of the crosshairs she used to mark Democrats for violent attacks on the campaign HQ of Gaby Giffords (D-AZ), who was subsequently almost almost killed by Republican Ammosexual, Jared Lee Loughner.  She denied the blood on her hands then, but she is now quick to play victim and blame Obama for her own violently dysfunctional family.  Mill Maher called her on it, but he made one mistake.

MaherWe had to know what Friday’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” would be like once Sarah Palin came out implying that President Obama was to blame for her son’s domestic abuse charges earlier this week.

While Palin was endorsing Donald Trump in Iowa her son was being arraigned on four misdemeanor counts. In her speech she said that we send our sons to fight in wars and they come back “a bit different.”

“And then just glossed over that,” Maher said. “Like, we accept that now. We send our sons off to stupid wars and they come back ‘a bit different’ because he beat up his girlfriend, was talking suicide and she blamed that on Obama. And I’m sure that’s why his girlfriend was cowering under the bed, because of Obama.”…

I disagree with Bill on one key point.  The leftist wing-nut at Yale is not the same as Republican Ammosexuals like Ammon Bundy.  We have wing nuts on the left, and Republicans correctly identify them as useful fools.  They are harmless, and Democrats do not support them,  Republican wing-nuts are dangerous domestic terrorists and the Republican Party does support them,  Bull is funny, but he is mistaken on that point.

As I have said many times before, Bill Maher is a very funny guy, whose irreverent style is almost always right on target.  For that reason, I try to share his material with you, whenever I have the opportunity, and I shall continue to do so.

I do have to add that, while I agree that everyone should be free to be themselves sexually, that does not extend to deceiving one’s partner in a committed relationship.  What else can I say? Well, I won’t be taking Pillify to Viagra Falls! Smile with tongue out

Maher2

It’s been too long since I’ve been able to share some fresh humor from Bill Maher.  While I do not agree with the way he proselytizes for evangelical atheism, lumping peaceful authentic believers  of all faiths together with political extremists who hijack religion as an excuse for their hatred and violence, as Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christians do, everything else he has to offers outweighs his evangelical atheist religion. (Not all atheists make their opinions a religion, as he does.)

Bill Maher isn't ready to fork over a million dollars for Hillary Clinton's campaign, but would like to give her some advice on how to revive it. During this Friday's New Rules segment on HBO's Real Time, Maher told his audience that as much as he likes Bernie Sanders, he doesn't believe he's going to end up being the Democratic nominee, and expressed his concern over some of Clinton's recent poll numbers.

I think Hillary would prefer to have the cash.  I do think she is likely to be the next President, unless she does not implode as a result of some scandal yet undefined.  It’s way to early to start using it’s now, but Bill coined a perfect phrase to use to pick on her, after and if she’s elected: “The Wicked Witch of the West Wing.”  LMAO!!
