Re: Comments to "W" from Bill Maher

I don't listen to Bill Maher for the same reason I don't listen to Rush Limbaugh. Both have political views that are so extreme that I can't find any entertainment from either one. The only difference is that Bill Maher delivers his message as a comedian and Rush delivers his message as a..........hmmmmmm.......not sure what he is, a self proclaimed expert of politics I guess.* *

Nothing illegal? I'm not so sure of that. Would it have gotten any other federal employee fired? Absolutely. Lying under oath, BTW, is illegal.

Lying, lying, lying -- yes I know : - Can you move on.

You said what he did was illegal - All of legal pundits at the time agreed that he didn't do anything illegal.

The case started out about 'Whitewater' which was a witch hunt by Ken Starr - A big waste of money for nothing! There was nothing that was done that was illegal. The Investigation is what caused the crime. "Lying under oath" - The Prosecuters were the ones that should have been locked up!

Re: Comments to "W" from Bill Maher

Justin,
I will admit my remarks were harsh. They sound like an indictment of a whole generation. But, in fact, they are an indictment of a woefully inadequate educational system.

Some years ago, I recall a survey of American high school seniors revealed over 60% couldn't find, or identify, places like France, Scotland or Nicaragua on a map. American students consistently scored near the bottom in subjects like science, history, and math.

You, by virtue of nothing but your age, are likely the product of this system.

You may not know, understand or recognize the symptoms of a fascist goverment. Your comments suggest you're enamored of this administration because of tax cuts and a job. Are you aware of the financial train wreck that's coming? That is, if our environment doesn't kill us first?
Do you care?

There are a good many over 40 who know little or nothing of world history. You ,because of your age, have the chance to learn a few things. Maybe it's not too late to help bring about change.

Things are a lot worse than you can imagine. Don't think trading the liberty of your family is worth the new plasma TV you just bought on credit. *It's not.

By throwing up Clinton whenever legitimate concerns are expressed about this person in the white house, you reveal either your ignorance of what's going on or a simple desire to parrot the right wing shills you watch on FOXNews.

Clinton's no longer in office.
Get over it.

I thought you just told us you were yanking our chain -- just a couple of posts ago. You started it off with the DING DING DING.

I did receive a significant tax cut since GWB took office.
Maybe. But you might want to give some thought about that. In many states, reduced federal funding brought on by federal "tax cuts" have resulted in required state and local tax increases that are greater than the federal tax cuts. But even if that's not the case for you, you might question whether a "tax cut" without a spending cut is really anything more than a tax deferral. Someone's got to pay that deficit off eventually -- with interest. An interesting point to remember about that tax deferral is that the tax rates have been reduced more for the extremely wealthy than for the middle class. So when the time comes to pay off the deficit, guess who gets to pay more than they would have prior to those tax cuts?

I'd bet on it.

You will be sure to inform out soldiers returning from overseas that their life experiences don't justify an opinion yet

How can you work under such oppressive conditions? You should retire or find another occupation. :

No, his desire to conceal the truth is what caused him to lie under oath.

Re: Comments to "W" from Bill Maher

when you ask the president of the united states of america if he had consensual sex utilizing a cigar or if those stains on that dress are from his ejaculation, the duty of the president of the united states of america is to lie.

because there the duty applied not to the person, but to the office.

when a president of the united states of america tells the american people the reason for going to war, the duty of the president of the united states of america is to tell the truth.

because there the duty applied not to the office, but to the people.

But Saluki, you're only 29 right? That means you can't possibly have anything to say with any merit whatsoever just like me. (Hyperbole folks). Maybe in another 10-20 years you'll obtain the wisdom to pontificate on important subjects like Clinton lied. Under oath.

OK, Justin is a bot. I have never seen such consistent, one-note answers from a real person. Oh, wait, I have...

Re: Comments to "W" from Bill Maher

Given the concerns voiced in this thread, I have a solution. I'm proposing a consitutional amendment banning blowj0bs, period. It's deviant, and I don't think our founding fathers fought and died just so that we can have blowj0bs. Maybe they did, but I didn't read that in the Federalist Papers. It's time to correct that oversight in an otherwise perfect document, the Constitution of the United States, once and for all. I think I have a real shot of winning in '08.

Sorry. The supreme court wouldn't allow an amendment like that. It would clearly be unconstitutional.
