I don't get it, can you elaborate? Mr. Maher seems pretty right on in the video clip you provided, unless I missed something and/or I am as devil-incarnate as well...

If you want to nationalize health care, the banks, and the American Car companies... then there is nothing wrong with this video clip... it just seems like that's what he's suggesting.

Could you provide a synopsis of the material beyond the mere posting of a video? What is the point of this thread?

I could just go to you youtube for this...

You know what... just delete the thread.

I said that this video is propaganda for big governmnet.... I obviously think his show is full of propaganda.

And in this episode... He discuses why we should let the governmnet take over everything in the USA.

He is preaching government as our savior.

Yeah, now you want to delete it after I stared and flagged this thread.

What's the matter; Bill make to much sense for you?

I plan on bumping this thread until everyone on ATS see's this thread.

Actually Government can work if it is not staffed by neocons that only have the interest of the corporate Oligarchy at heart.

And I'm not completely sure that Obama isn't pimpin for the corps either.

It makes perfect sense if you trust the government... But that's the problem... I don't trust the government at all.

How much controll do we need to give them?

I know a person that works for AIG, and if this person ever gets another raise at this company... the government will decide. Basically he works for the governmnet now. Pretty soon if you work GM, GE, BAC, Citigroup, or any bank,... you will be working for the governmnet. Your mortgage will be through the governmnet.

All your debt will be no longer debt to Citigroup... but debt to the government.

SOUNDS GREAT!

As opposed to the ceo's of rich corporations being in control?
What about the thousands of lobbyists in DC?
Do you think the country would be in such a wreck if gubmnet
was even more toothless against the corrupt?
Small gubment is fine, as long as it's on the side of the people to start with!
The country has been marginalized, diced up and sold to the most
powerfull a long time ago.
Too late for socialism. We have good ol' greed in charge now!
Enjoy!.....

The OP would be doing better to make his point as the video is pretty long. The OP would be doing better to go ahead and contribute his views when asked as it seems there is somebody that wants them. Giving up and saying "just delete the thread" will not get you any respect. Just count to ten and give your honest opinion.


As far as my opinion goes, I'd say Bill Maher is just as talented and funny as ever. He's also a sensationalist that gets people worked up by insulting most everybody.
If you watch this particular clip it is obvious he is also a socialist who believes the government should control everything.

I don't agree with him but that is just my opinion.


See, having an opinion is ok. Even if others disagree.

S&F I think it would better serve the title to remove the "skip to 2:25". This is a perfect example that hate, racism, and extreme secular points of view are not just coming from republicans. It is also a good indicator that the smearing of potential GOP presidential nominees in 2012 by the elite liberal media is already underway. At least he didn't get into religion in the clip. Maher = Limbaugh

He's merely suggesting we need to stop putting our stimulious in our mouths. He's saying the government needs to set some rules and stop printing money. C'mon now... we're not going to just POOF and become a communism. This isn't the 60's and there is no red scare.

The thing is, if we let these banks go under, the economy will collapse. We're so close to the brink that right now IS the time for the government to step in and say "Hey... stop being stupid" and not the time for the government to do what it did last time.

IN the 1920's the government did very little to prevent the collapse of the entire American economy and that's something they are trying to avoid. I think they would rather be blamed for trying and failing than not trying and failing.

The truth is, if the economy does tank, either way your debt is not going to matter, because when, or if, the economy bounces back from that depression, your debt is going to mean very little.

The truth is it's time to start working together and stop taking shots at comedic critics like Maher. He's not WRONG, he's just... well... very biased.

In certain circumstances his ideas could apply, and those circumstances might be very close at hand.

He isn't saying the government should take over these companies, he's saying the government needs to set some darn rules.

You hand over the Banks to the US government... and you will never get them back.

You hand over Health Care to the US government... and you will never get it back.

You hand over any other company like GM, GE, AIG to the US government... and you will never get them back.

and we say power to the people?



it might sound like a good idea right now... but this is how Big Brother takes over.

Thanks for posting this!

I used to dislike Bill Maher. I thought he was a little pompous.

And he is, but he is also hilarious.

Makes a bunch of great points.

Thanks for giving me a chance to reevaluate him, OP.

Funny stuff.

Bill is a the MAN. He pisses some people off because of his delivery, but his message is right on point. I find myself agreeing with just about everything that comes out of his mouth. Watch his movie Religilous. Its a great documentary and his views on religion jive perfectly with mine. I wish we had more people just like him in the media and entertainment industry.

And like Bill said the government IS THE PEOPLE! so an argument that the government takes stuff away from the "people" is an absurd position. You can't take something away from yourself.
