I blame you for the legalization of pot!
I agree with a great deal of what you say. And you say it in a funny way, which always gets through to people. You know, "Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand" has always been my favorite Mark Twain quote. However, your constant nagging and going on about legalizing pot is doing a great disservice to America and young people. What you forget is this is a drug. A hallucinogen drug at that. And one that has grown 1000 times stronger than the stuff we smoked in HS. Like all drugs, it works on people in different ways. I can tell you, everyone I know was frightened on it. Paranoid, scared. Who wants to feel that way for God sakes? Some kids have even wound up in mental hospitals because of it. Anything that can make you feel paranoid like that, cannot be called an 'innocent do no harm' drug. Now thanks to you and your influence, I get dizzy shopping in the food store b/c the clerks are in back smoking that 'innocent drug' and people passing by get contact high. I have a right to NOT feel dizzy, which I feel trumps your "RIGHT" to smoke weed and not be arrested. Sure, it should be decriminalized, but not legal! Don't we have enough hell with drunks on the road? Now I have to worry about my kid getting a hold of this DRUG when he goes Trick or Treating!? Is this REALLY what you want to be known and remembered for? Seriously!? An intelligent man like you harping on such a childish "HIGH SCHOOL" topic is ridiculous! Grow up already Bill! Who cares that you have to stand outside to smoke? It's not all about you! Remember you are not always right, I think you think you are. You aren't. Look at Donald Trump. Is he intelligent because he runs successful businesses? No, he's as dumb as a stump! But he is smart in some areas... grow up! Stop harping on about your damn weed! Kids should be considered!moreless

thank you for providing some of the more reliable and entertaining news extant.
This is not your usual format, but I think the humor within should be experienced by other people. It is short but true. I think of "Religulous" every time I read it.
Faith Litmus Test
Once started, the university professor yielded the floor to debate. Students in Philosophy 101 voiced pros and cons up and down the lecture hallback and forth across the rows, before settling in the middle.
Sitting on the left side of the aislerow seven, seat eight, a young man in a white T-shirt and blue jeans stated that "People don't need A detached look of assurance on his face, he flipped his bangs out of his eyes before continuing with "We can just as easily navigate the world with reason
Up the steps and on the right side of the aisle, a young man of continually rankled forehead sputtered in response, "You can'tegh. You don'tugh. I mean, you'd have to be crazy to think that people don't need faith!" If his emphatic eyebrows and his face of heavy consternation didn't convince people of how seriously he took his responsibilities as Student Body President, then the dark serge suit and tie with white shirt he wore for church or business extinguished all residual doubt.
"Maybe you do," said his new-found theological nemesis, tossing his hair and spreading an incredulous smirk across his face. "But that doesn't mean everyone else
The class president's furrowed brow clenched alternately in anger and surprise to his classmate's remarks. After he heard that impertinent voice mention "science and evidence," he flushed red glaring down across the aisle and interrupted with "Don't tell me about science! I have faith and I'm a scientist!"
Upon the next word from seat number eight, the Honors Society presidentbald, phallic, and standing up behind the class president, rifled down an accusatory finger, "Hey! You take it easy on Spunk there!"
"His nickname is 'Spunk'?" number eight rejoined. "Happy-go-lucky or jissom?"
Amidst the laughter, a plaintive cry from a seat in the shadows near the top of the hall begged, "Please, I'm the valedictorian. No profanity! Please!"
When the well-read hoodlum suggested that scientists work with evidence and not faith, Spunk bolted upright from his seat and shouted what his force and volume suggested had to be the conclusive salvo in the debate, "Are you trying to tell me Einstein didn't have faith when he invented the light bulb!"

Bill is the best
Bill Maher is one of a handful of reasons why TV worth watching. He is brutally honest, but also takes his license as a comedian to use hyperbole, irony, and sarcasm, which are almost always on the mark. I don't laugh much, but he keeps me laughing out loud. Keep it up Bill! And he doesn't care what Fox or Limbaugh sympathizers think. He's got their number. Keep it up, Bill Maher!
Typical liberal non-critical thinking.
Requesting liberals to become introspective in their thought processes is obviously a mythical request. Bill Maher validates the foregoing each and every time he opens his mouth. He attempts to pretend he is sophisticated and informed but the antithesis is apparent due to his "bucket-over-his-head" concept of reality.
Maher Is A Scumbag
They ought to call this show Real Slime Is Bill Maher. This lowlife greasy headed weasel is such a hate monger like Rush Limbaugh is for the right. He like Chris Matthews are such in the tank for Obama that they are not objective. Bill Maher does not hide his hatred for George W. Bush and Fox News and for that I applaud is honesty but it gets repulsive and incredibly hard to watch. He always has his fellow leftist celebrities in his weekly bashfest. Since Real Time With Bill Maher is on HBO which is owned by Time Warner who owns CNN don't expect to see any fairness in the future. I only wish he can get a score of 0.0. Bill Maher has reached a new low by calling God a mass murderer. HBO should fire this scumbag now.moreless
Harpers Bizarro Poll
That Harpers poll you used last week in your rant on "seniors" was a little bit off the mark. Social Security isn't government spending , per se, on "seniors" and shouldn't be included in spending comparisons to children, defense, agriculture, welfare, etc. And ,for the record Medicare doesn't cover Viagra or Cialis. By the way, . Cupp , is the only female "conservative " commentator I can take or that I like.
***y bill sucks ass
I would like to stoop down to Bill's level and call him a huge ***. That bigot is trying to destroy what made this country great. Its not like he matters though, now that people are waking up and the presidents approval ratings are at ~40% its not like any democrat has a chance. Im not a republi*** btw, I wouldn't be surprised if the repubs turned into the new whig party. Lrn2history liberal ***s
REAL TIME IS REAL AWESOME
Bill Maher is back and better than ever. I love this show. I especially love the panel discussions. Bill presides over a diverse panel from both sides of the aisle, and the show sizzles when the panel goes at it. I can't wait to see what Bill and his guests are going to say. Bill is extremely funny and smart, and I miss him when he's not on. You rock, Bill.
