I just finished watching a RealTime Episode and felt compelled to share it. Before anyone(Neo96
) swoops down to exclaim Maher is a 'libtard', would you please watch the episode in it's entirety. I really enjoy frank, honest and accurate conversations about our political/financial situation, no matter where they come from, and imo this is an enlightening one, with perspectives from both sides.
Episode
2nd Link
You should probably skip the intro to 5:20, because yes, Bill's humor is one sided, but still the show was really good.

Guests include: Top-of-show is the Former Chair of the Council of Economic Advisors, Christina Romer.Panel:
Joan Walsh – The Editor-at-Large of Salon.com
Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson – Astrophysicist, Host of StarTalk Radio, and Director of the Hayden Planetarium
Stephen K. Bannon – his latest film is the Sarah Palin doc, “The Undefeated”


Peace,

I would just like to add to the "political madness" forum, that it seems most here realize and acknowledge the fact that the problems are not exclusive to one side, so why do we continue to feed the division? I realize a lot of posts are reactionary to others, but would it not be beneficial to change those reactions to that of consciously applying a balanced/inclusive view? It seems more progress would be made as well as less animosity. I too am guilty of knee-jerk emotional responses, but I also try to incorporate the whole picture in my contemplations. It seems we have moved beyond any sensibility and I feel we should minimize the blaming and finger pointing at this point, and offer solutions and unifying contributions.

Peace,
spec
