HBO: Video: George Carlin on Politicians

America has Freedom of Speech and I love that, as long as we don't threaten, libel, harass people or yell fire in a movie theater. Perhaps you can yell fire at a ballpark or outside or even in your house though, but I wouldn't try that unless its the real thing, otherwise you might be asked the question. "What are you in for?" By a guy or girl named Bubba with hairy armpits and hasn't showered since they were a kid. And you may say, "uh I yelled fire in a crowded place and they might say I'm in for murdering a grandmother. So I can steal her food stamps", how small would you feel then.

I support Freedom of Speech as a Liberal of course even Freedom of Hate Speech, expression like for pornography and other adult activities. But two groups of people to me at least who don't get the right to complain, are people who didn't bother to vote. I mean if you don't do your part to make the system better, what the hell right do you have to complain about people who screwed up the system. The other people who I believe have no right to complain are people who spend too much money and then are disappointed about what they got for their money.

We get what we paid for, if you're cheap, chances are your not going to get much in return. If you're too generous chances are your not going to get enough back in what you invested. You have to know what your paying or voting for and then spend and vote for what's worth it to get what you want. I'll give you a few of examples and I apologize they are sports related, but I'll give you another example as well thats not.

Its like a general manager who spends 20M$ on a career backup quarterback to be his starter because that QB had one good season filling in for the starting QB, but then once they get to their new team they have a lousy season and the GM is thinking. "What 20M$ on a guy who completes 50% of his passes and throws more INT's then TD's and doesn't even finish the season because the backup QB is better. I could've paid the schmuck who played QB for me last year that money and gotten a better deal". Because you're paying for failure when you overpay and well my answer would be why the hell did you spend 20M$ on a guy who was a backup QB for 6-7 years. He was a backup that long because he wasn't good enough to start for the most part and got his one break and took advantage of it and took that to the bank, but then came back to reality.

Like a millionaire who has a horses face and then meets a hot women who just wants him for his money. And then leaves him once she has it or a big part of it. Another group of people who don't have a right to complain are sports fans that go and watch all of their teams games. Take Washington Redskins fans who have led the NFL in attendance the last ten years at least, but then these people have the guts to complain about how bad their team is. If you don't like them, stop giving them your money. Find something else to do with your time.

Another group of people that don't have a right to complain are voters who complain about the same politicians, but then keep sending them back to office, by doing that you're just encouraging more bad behavior. You're telling them "they must like the job I'm doing because they keep sending me back to office". As comedian George Carlin says, politicians come from the same places that we do. Have similar parents, families, schools, churches etc. If you don't like them, find someone who you like that will do a good job.

Make sure you do a good job researching that candidate, which will make you an educator voter. Which will make you a powerful voter, someone who won't put up with the same garbage as uneducated voters. Or run for office yourself. But don't complain, you only get what you voted and paid for.



HBO: Video: Real Time With Bill Maher: New Rule, Stupid People

Bill Maher loves to make fun of the Christian Right, or does a damn good job of impersonating someone who loves to make fun of the Christian Right, so good he should win an Oscar. Why not they are big easy target, kinda like aiming at an ocean from a beach. So why not shoot, instead of comedians and bloggers actually sitting down and putting their hand to their chin and going "hum what should I write about now". How about just listen to ignorant people talk and make fun of them instead. Thats what I always say anyway, or just said it actually thats the first time I just said that, but who's counting, well I guess I just did.

I mean think about who's easier to make fun of then ignorant people, especially when they're in charge like I don't know in the White House, or Congress.

Examples of doing dumb things-

Sending the country to war based on false intelligence to use as an example. Trying to link Iraq with Al -Quada, which is like trying to link a prostitute with the Southern Baptist Convention. They don't go together, sure there are Southern Baptists that like Prostitutes, but they generally don't go together. Or trying to link homosexuality with the 9/11 Attacks. If these people weren't so stupid, I might be mad at them just because of their hate. But since they are so stupid, its hard for me not to feel anything, but sorry for them. They are victims of our public education system and not being raised right.

And because of this, the rest of society gets to laugh at them and put up with them. Here's another one, Catholics can't go to heaven because they aren't Baptist. Isn't Heaven meant for good people. When we don't raise our kids right, or make sure they get a good education, they suffer the consequences of that of course. And a lot of them end up in our criminal justice system generally as guests. But the rest of society, sure gets some new easy big targets to shoot at, like a blimp over a stadium. (In other words Rush Limbaugh) But we have to deal with their stupidity, their lack of intelligence. Like what we had on Iraq before we went to war. Especially when they are pressured to run for high office to help their party. Because of their name recognition and who their father is and they end up having to make decisions.

The presidency isn't  ignorant politicians, or it sure as hell shouldn't be.  Can you imagine what it must of been like for Condolezza Rice to explain intelligence reports to George W. Bush. She must of had to use drawings or try to compare military combat with football games or something. This whole idea, or attacking another country because they may attack you in the future. First of all our national defense is so strong that would never happen. Because any foreign fighter plane or planes or warships that attempted to invade the United States because of our radar system would first be warned before they got close or could launch an attack. And then we could blow them away as well. The rest of the world knows this, which is why we haven't been attacked by a foreign military inside America since 1941.

Ignorant people on the Far-Right and Far-Left are fun to make fun of, lets just admit that. We can't or shouldn't be nice to everyone. For every Saint that we have, we need a few (pardon the term) assholes to keep it real. So most of the country can stay within striking distance of reality. (When they aren't high) But we need to remember that we pay a price for ignorance as a country, especially when it reaches high office. Because we as a country or state lets say, have together paid a price for their stupid decisions. So lets do our part to prevent as many future ignorant people in the future as we can.
