“Well, trailers are usually made to promote a movie and they use clips from the movie to do just that. So, yes, I'd say I have a pretty good idea what this piece of fiction is about. And we've had to put up with her since 2008...by now I'm sure most of us know what she is "truly about."”
“The Undefeated? She was on a losing ticket in 2008 (yes, that means they were defeated) and quit as Governor in 2009 because, although she likes to give all sorts of maverick-y reasons, the truth is she couldn't take it anymore and saw the dollar signs from selling a book and becoming a Faux News puppet. How does that make her "undefeated"? In the two major events that matter in terms of her public, political life she was either defeated or she gave up. Ohhhhh...maybe the title is meant in an ironic sort of way... In that case...bravo!”

“I'm a proud River Plate fan and always will be. They need to get rid of some of the club's leaders - the president and his entire group - and they will be able to come back stronger. River Plate was taken over by mafiosos who did not have the club's best interest in mind and worked to ruin the club's image while stealing millions. The fans that got violent on Sunday don't represent us all...most of the fans at the game were calm and expressed their pain through their tears, not violence. River Plate has the greatest fans and together we'll keep our team strong!! "Los fracasos de los grandes son los triunfos de los mediocres" = The failures of the greats are the triumphs of the mediocre. Vamos RIVER!!!”
“This isn't a "Latin American males" thing. This kind of behavior can be seen all over the world - yes, including in the United States - when teams lose and when they win. I recall Lakers fans rioting last year when they won the championship (notice they won...not lost...which makes this even more ridiculous) and I know not everyone out there on the streets was a Latin American male. Please take your prejudice somewhere else.”
“I don't think he was excusing the behavior of these fans (by the way...the minority of the fans are the ones who got violent). I think he was explaining why people get so passionate when something like this happens. Relegation is a HUGE deal...and when your team is relegated it can bring out the worst in you. To see your team, your club, all that history relegated is heart wrenching, especially when you know that this was done at the hands of a couple selfish, egotistical b@$t@rd$ who have no shame. We Argentinos are passionate about futbol, but that doesn't mean it's okay to get violent - nothing justifies that behavior and those who acted that way should be held accountable.”

“Not really. I'm the farthest thing from conservative, yet I still choose to believe in religion. I may have my differences with religious leaders, but I know what I believe in and follow my own course. People can be liberal (or in my case, very liberal) and still believe in God - it's called thinking for yourself, questioning, and not just following along with what others want you to believe.”

“I don't agree with Bill's attitude that religion in any form is terrible and that all people who practice a religion are crazy. Every religion has extremists, but there are also rational people who feel the need to believe in something. I don't see what's wrong with that. For many people, religion is something they can turn to when they need answers and/or support. It doesn't have to be a physical church, mosque, temple, etc.
I said that "I also think he goes a bit too far with religion" - I didn't say I completely disagree with everything he has to say on the topic. (Please carefully read what others post before jumping all over them and turning their comments into something they didn't say.) I may have certain beliefs, but I also know that others believe differently...and that's fine! My beliefs work for me - I don't expect everyone else to follow what I believe, nor do I think that "those who believe otherwise will fry in a lake of fire forever." That's ridiculous.
Unfortunately, there are many people, like you, who complain about the intolerance that can exist in religions, yet you don't seem to have any tolerance for people who want to believe in something - all you do is criticize and attack.”

“Agreed!! When I hear Bill Maher speak, it's like he's saying everything I'm thinking...except when it comes to this topic. (I also think he goes a bit too far with religion.)”

“no single human being could ever go " too far" on religion. The church ( and mosque and temples ) have so much power no one man can even compete.”

“He goes too far with religion? What IS the content of religion? What WE believe for no good reason at all is 100% correct, and those who believe otherwise will fry in a lake of fire forever. You know how long forever is? I just read "How It Ends" by Chris Impey, and the universe will fade out in 10-to-the-99th power years, and people in Hell will still be there...simply for being born into a belief sytem of which God doesn't approve.”
“Some people here are taking this video way too seriously. This little girl will not be damaged by what her dad did. Take the stick out of your behind and just smile for a minute. The video wasn't hilarious and the dad isn't very mean...it was just a goofy video we'll all forget about in twenty minutes. Sheesh!”

“Can you imagine living with someone who doesn't find humor in anything........a fate worse than death...however I think some posters just do it so they can have some attention in a world where they are largely ignored.......”
Kerry was swift boated because people in this country tend to be too ignorant and stupid to do their own research and look for the truth. (And I wasn't even a huge fan of Kerry's, but lesser of two evils, right?)
Palin opens her mouth, spews outright lies, and the stupid people follow her every word. We can create all the ads we want showing what a mindless, useless human being she is and all she has to do is talk about how patriotic she is - that's her one tool, the patriotism card. Unfortunately nobody on the other side of the aisle has the balls to call her out on what a hypocrite she is.
There's a great priest I've heard speak before - I think he's either in Pacifica or San Francisco, not sure - but he just has amazing things to say about the religion. He calls everything like he sees it and isn't afraid to call out the Church for being backwards on different issues. (Can't believe he hasn't been excommunicated yet!) I love hearing him talk because he's so real, honest, and compassionate. We need more people like him in leadership positions.
Isn't it amazing to see these very religious countries are coming around?? It's because there's a new generation of people speaking out and demanding the Church evolve with the rest of the world. Little by little...one country at a time...we're getting there. I don't know about the United States, though. Christian fundamentalists own the system here and if they can't have their way, they literally bring out the guns to "protect" themselves. I hope you're right and that the Prop 8 trial turns out to be a good thing. Disappointed wouldn't even begin to describe how I would feel if the court came back with the wrong decision.”
