  • Arrogant Little Libertarians and the Writers/Producers Who Put Words in Their Mouths

    Penn & Teller: Stage Magicians, Libertarians, Arrogant Uninformed Idiots. Their claims of 'facts' are 'way off. God is mentioned in the AA twelve steps "as you see Him", which means it could be a power in your own, tiny little Libertarian brain, fact the 'big book' has an entire section on incorporating the process if you're agnostic. The 5% success rate of AA . . . AA never denies it. But doing nothing does NOT have a 5% 'success' rate, by the time the untreated alcoholic is 'cured', they are unemployed, divorced, disowned, and/or dead. The 5% success rate matches that of $50,000+ 'programs', and AA charges . . . NOTHING. There is no "church of AA" where you drop money. There is no political machine for AA where power is accumulated as in a real cult. What the hell did the producer/writer of the program do for research of this show, talk to some buddies of his at a f)(*^^ng bar? AA also never claimed to be the ONLY approach, only AN approach. Yet the writers/producers slept through that AA session. P&T: The Rush Limbaugh of Libertarians. Penn needs to shut up as much as Teller.
