Bill Maher now hopes that the economy crashes so that angry Democrats can win in 2020. Do you support this classic Saul Alinsky approach of cheer for the demise of our country?
Who the hell is Saul Allinsky? I look him up, forget who he is, look him up again, forget who he is..ah fug it. I'll look him up again and forget who he is in a few days 🙄
Lady ... you may want to ask a doctor about your memory issues. Saul Alinsky is a monumental mentor for Mrs Clinton. She wrote her master’s thesis on his works. Her life has been an image to Mr Alinsky and his “Rules for Radicals”.
Mrs Clinton and those like her depend upon your blind ignorance and compliance to further their agenda. The formula for it is right there in Mr Alinsky’s writings.
So she wrote a thesis on a community organizer. Big deal (I googled it. To forget it tomorrow 😁)
Lady ... to refer to Mr Alinsky as a “community organizer” is to show your ignorance as you offend Mr Alinsky! He is absolutely a community destroyer, by design!
Hahah the people who celebrate the demise of our economy are called bear market investors. The economy crashes by itself every 6-8 years. Capitalism has run its course. It’s long over due for something new. The democrats won’t do anything different. You don’t need to worry think
Alz ... I’m not worried as it appears that American citizens are wise to the idiocy of the Democrat party. We all know that our republic has endured many tyrants, not the least of which was MrO, and we have been able to bounce back after each. The progress we’ve made since the regressive tyrant was tossed on his huge ear 16 months ago is tremendous. Let’s hope that MrT can help us motor through the next six years with a vibrant economy.
But please continue to sit in the sidelines and pray for our demise, it helps to show the stark contrast be for the impotent Democrats and the rest of us.
I wont need to pray for the demise. Working class people will eventually, through the means of technology, achieve communism and we watch the need for the government to wither away as Marx would’ve put it.
And yeah somebody needs to illuminate the idiocy of the left; the right does a fine job making themselves look idiotic pretty blatantly. That’s the truth, I’m not even trying to insult your idiotic polls.
Alz ... keep dreaming. This more perfect union will not fall to the degenerate totalitarian communism. It is precisely the working people that rejected the message of more grotesque government from the Madame of Corruption in 2016. Without the working class, MrT would not have won.
Let that sink in!
Well we didn’t really get to see what the American people really wanted because of the DNC’s shenanigans against Bernie. But you’d have to be an idiot to not realize the growing support for a socialist politician around the world. Everyone around the world woke up because of the availability of information through technology. Politics became transparent. People got mad and voted a populist in everywhere. But next will come socialism and communism the natural progression after capitalism. Then the state will be eventually be unnecessary once the majority are ruling through the means of production. Marx never advocates for a big government or a government at all. He just lays out the natural progression of economics after slavery
Alz ... and with the new rules, the resident communist won’t have a chance as they’re now saying that unless you’re a delusional Democrat, they won’t let you run.
And you and I know that without the love/hate relationship with the disgusting Democrat party, Mr Sellout Sanders will be nothing but a pimple on the backside of history.
You don’t need a politician to achieve communism. Workers could take over a business without political help. They could strike or come up with funds other ways to buy the business. I don’t think you understand Marxism because you’ve been an avid member of the left right dichotomy in politics. Communism doesn’t need a government. It’ll happen in the workplace if it doesn’t happen in politics first.
But laws like the right to own put up by jermey Corbin will help and is what Marx would’ve called the transition to communism proper, then the need for a government would wither away
Alz ... keep dreaming. In the meantime the sane adults have control of the country.
Now who sounds like the totalitarian dictator hahaha
Adults have control of the country? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I bet anyone's toddlers act more mature than the idiots who run this country
History has voted.
Deal with it.
You don’t have pure capitalism or communism anywhere anymore so to say either one wins is stupid
Alz ... and to suggest that communism has EVER “won” is simply laughable!
Lady ... you’re wrong. We kicked the toddler-in-chief to the curb when we ejected him and his band of loser back in January 2017. MrO is now searching for someone else to change his diapers.
Even in your misinformed, political definition of communism you’re wrong. The “communist” beat us in Vietnam. Who won on hamburger hill? China’s economy is growing and surpassing our. The US was globally voted as the greatest threat to world peace by Gallup polls.
Communism is about workers taking over the means of production. There are plenty of worker cooperatives in business therefore you have communism in the economy.
Alz ... why is China’s economy growing? Is it because of or in spite of communism?
There is no totalitarian state anymore, stupid. You can say maybe Kenya is the closet to totalitarian capitalist and North Korea a government enforced communist illusion haha.
What’s it called when your communist China and communist North Korea trade? Or when the Soviet union trades with Cuba. It’s state capitalism with the government running the factory.
Alz ... you can’t answer the simple question and yet you call me stupid?
It’s because of communism obviously. You are stupid
That’s the simple answer
The toddler in Chief is in office now. Someone says something bad about him, doesn't do what he wants, tells him off. He's on Twitter having a temper tantrum. Waah, waah. Grow up . You're 70 years old, not 9.
Pure capitalism exists everywhere and every time two people engage in a peaceful trade.
Pure communism exists within a family that agrees to share and share alike, and in many foxholes surrounded by deadly enemies.
That’s about it.
Alz ... having lived in China for 13 years I can tell you that you couldn’t be more wrong!
You really should educate yourself before you make such idiotic assertions that any simple dig can invalidate.
To help you, I recommend that you start your remedial education with a study of China’s Special Economic Regions. There is absolutely nothing that is communist about the last two decades of China’s economic succ SS.
You obviously don’t understand Marxism from talking to you think. That’s clear. You can easily travel the world and keep your bigoted ideology. Very easy, especially when you’re there for money.
Mark yeah and don’t forget to report that income at the end of the year or else you’ll be punished!
Alz ... I see that you’re content to fester in your ignorance. Your loss!
I don’t see a loss in worker cooperatives or worker rights. Now your definition of communism; I don’t see a loss in China’s state own railroad company or their government planned infrastructure. Or the obvious fact that the Chinese government PLANNED (not a free market decision) for years to export things to other countries while keeping wages low so their government can expand and have things like the state owned railroad company. Now they are PlANNING to build wages of their workers and service their own economy. They aren’t a government that support free market decision making. They plan their economy out and put the people who would profit from a drone strike in jail
Alz ... your mumbling does nothing to address your ignorance on the facts regarding the forces that have saved China from the failures of communism.
Think... change your name to Stupid.
Alz ... it’s a hoot that it is so predictable that mindless leftists first lose the argument and then attack my tag. I wouldn’t change it for the world as it’s so fun to watch you set your hair on fire when it is actually you who is exposed because you can’t think for yourself!
Uh oh I’m exposed hahah. Don’t be crazy. You’re the one that can’t answer my questions. I’ve been giving you the benefit of the doubt the whole argument and you still lost
Alz ... you couldn’t ask a valid question if your life depended on it!
I never liked Bill Maher.
I do not support that way of thinking even after all 8 years of the past administration was filled with obstruction and complete sabotage from the right. This is real life and real people are suffering.
Roth ... nobody on the right said this kind of disgusting thing during the dark Obama years. Your attempt at a moral equivalence fails miserably!
Maher is your typical liberal atheist socialist. That’s why he has a minimal following.
Just like how Limbaugh hoped Obama would fail.
Polster ... it is NOTHING like that! Hoping that MrO would fail (as he did) and his alt-leftist ideal of “totally transforming America” is not at all the same as wishing the entire country’s economy fails.
Is that what Limbaugh said? I didn’t even think the term “alt-left” existed yet.
Polster ... distract as you must.
Maher is a disgusting excuse for a human being.
He’s truly a mentally ill man.
How is he on tv?
Who watches him?
I wish Bill Maher would go off the air. Please someone take away his microphone and camera.
Didn’t know that guy was still alive.
Gal ... Bill Maher is definitely alive. Saul Alinsky doesn’t need to be alive. Leftist Democrats have his book, “Rules for Radicals” as required reading.
MrO and Mrs Clinton are both Alinsky disciples.
In Lucifer’s service!
Republicans did everything in their power to depress the economy during the Obama presidency. They opposed every stimulus measure and spread doubt and fear at every opportunity. Every time the unemployment rate dropped they said it was fake. When the Stock market rose, they claimed it was not a true measure of the health of the economy. Remember..Payback is a bi-ch.
Keep believing that. Just don't drive a car.
Hey nobamist, is Barack Obama a natural born citizen of the United States?
Barack Obama may be, but Barry Soetero may not.
Which do you believe:
9/11 was an inside job;
The moon landing was a fake.
What a horrible son of a bitch.
Democrats continue to hope that America suffers and stumbles just so they can get more power and continue to grind us into the dirt.
While if Trump's policies lead to a depression, I hope that that depression comes before the election rather than after. I want trump to be accountable for his policies and I don't want him to be reelected if his policies lead to a crash so it's best we know that before an election rather than after.
It's likely Trump's policies will lead to a crash and while I hope it doesn't, there's historic precedent for it. Conservative economics create a boom bust cycle and this leads to crashes. We've seen jobs continue to leave the country under Trump, we've seen him bail out big businesses like a corporate ass washer does, and we've seen what these things lead to when you mix it in with deregulation. Trump's policies will lead to a crash and while I don't want that to happen, it will.
SN ... please make up your mind. Either the president is responsible for the economy or there’s an historic precedent for it. You don’t away with speaking out of both sides of your mouth.
There's a historical precedent for the economy failing due to a president creating a boom bust cycle.
If a President wishes to do policies that tend to create a boom bust cycle, it is his fault when the bust happens.
Think, what I wrote was literally that simple. It was so simple a high school economics student could understand it. Come back when you aren't going to waste my time. I hate having to repeat myself.
SN ... you waved your hands, but provided no context.
Proof that deregulation led to the 2008 recession.
Proof that a lack of regulation led to the Great Depression.
This is basic economics. If I really have to explain to you how deregulation or a lack of regulation creates a boom bust cycle, then you're hopeless. Even Conservatives will often admit that a boom bust cycle is a result of deregulation, they just think it's a good thing or natural and should be embraced.
SN ... you’re a hoot. The Great Recession was caused by the Democrats, including MrO, who forced banks to write loans for credit unworthy borrowers.
You're talking about a policy that occurred under Democratic and Republican administrations. Both parties were responsible for it and both parties were embracing policies that encouraged a boom but cycle. Btw, it can't be Obama's fault as the great recession started in 08 and Obama was elected in 09. It wasn't Obama's fault but rather Bush's, Clinton's, Bush's and Reagan's that embraced policies that led to the recession.
"It was Obama's fault!!!" Look, it's fine to be uneducated, but to be uneducated and act as though you are is utterly foolish. If you didn't know that Obama was elected after economy already collapsed, well I can't help ya outside of pointing that out lmao. Obama can't be the fault of a crisis that happened before he was elected! I may be a hoot but at least I know how the economy works lmfao
SN ... yes, it can be MrO’s fault! What was his job before he went on the government dole? That’s right, he was a community communist. And what was one of his main clients? That’s right, it was ACORN. And what did MrO teach those radicals to do? Yep, you got it, as a community “organizer” MrO taught ACORN and other radical groups to terrorize bank executives and their families to force them to write bad loans to credit unworthy individuals. These subprime loans had no expectation of being paid back, and it was upon that house of cards that the economy collapsed.
If you want to do some research on the subject, start with the Community Reinvestment Act and the negative outcomes of it.
SN ... as a side note, it’s usually the low info loudmouths who are wagging their fingers at others and calling those others ignorant when the truth is that it’s the Low info loudmouths that are the problem. A little food or your thought. Before you call others ignorant, you might want to check your own knowledge on the subject.
Do you know what I just heard? I heard you sucking off Bush, Bush, Clinton, and Reagan. I don't give a crap what Obama's former job was. He wasn't in any power to cause the crisis. Who was? Bush. The collapse happened under his watch, not Obama. Stop making excuses for President Bush and stop being a partisan hack. Am I a hack? No. I actually criticize Obama on many occasions. Unlike you I can criticize people on my side. I'm not a partisan hack. But guess what? Obama didn't cause the crash as HE WASN'T THE PRESIDENT AND DIDN'T CAUSE THE PASSING OF THE BILL THAT CAUSED THE CRASH. Bush was. It was at least Bush's fault and I also extend the blame to those before him. It wasn't a community organizers fault and it wasn't a first term senators fault.
Do you know why I call you ignorant? I have posted sources and you haven't even argued against them. Instead you'll throw the blame on an individual who wasn't in any actual power. Ignorant hacks do that. Don't like that? Don't be it.
I like how Think calls Obama “MrO” like he’s some James Bond super villain.
People like him are an absolute disgrace. They only want their team to win even if it is at the cost of the country.
I am not a fan of the current administration but I wish them nothing but the best. People like him disgust me.
Why bother for a crash? Just tell all your followers that government statistics are a lie.
That would be a lie.
That is what Pelosi is doing
Male ... did you see the latest Princess Pelosi flub? She said that it’s not the unemployment rate that counts, it’s the consumer confidence that really matters. Her only problem is that she failed to check that consumer confidence is also up significantly since we’ve exited the dark Obama years.
She is a deranged and delusional loon.
It’s funny that Feinstein now thinks pot should be a state’s rights issue. She has fervently declared it to be a Federal issue until her latest poll numbers.
Link doesn’t work for me.
He doesn't??!! ...Does this mean you can't play Legend of Zelda games? 😢
Legend of Neil is better.
I want that 5:53 back :P 👎
Oops! Wrong link
Try this one
Funny, the same exact thing happened to me once...fairies look exponentially more attractive when you're drunk.
It did make me feel like a little music...
If there were a.crash, Bill Maher will be ok. It's other people's livelihoods he doesn't care about.
But as a socialist democrat, he sure loves other people's money!
Hoping for failure or collapse on our country for selfish reasons, is about as immoral as it can get.
You mean like Rush Limbaugh did?
They did it too! Syndrome.
You have a similar link?
Yup! That sort of thing comes from both sides, doesn’t it?
Yes, we wanted Obama to fail in his agenda to transform America. His policies sucked.
I know you did, point made.
So I guess two wrongs make it right!
Do you approve of Bills actions?
Rons I’m just pointing out that it’s both ways, it’s both wrong to do.
Rush Limbaugh wanted the economy to crash? Do you have a reputable source for that ignorant claim?
Yeah, his own mouth.
Yeah and? All good Americans hoped that Barry Soetoro’s Marxist policies failed.
That is different than Bill Maher saying that he hopes a good economy crashes just so that Democrats can win an election. You know that, right?
Shades of Rush Limbaugh. 'I hope he fails.' Remember that?
Yes, he has shown us the way. A nice Depression is exactly the thing to teach people not to vote Republican.
Phaly ... let me get this straight, you attempting to equate hoping that MrO fails to hoping the entire economy fails, right?
Think- same thing.
If the President fails, the country fails.
Zim & Phaly ... it is ABSOLUTELY NOT the same thing! MrO arrogantly declared he was going to “fundamentally change America”, and while the half shot tried, he failed. And the country can be grateful that he failed!
There is definitely a huge difference between wishing that the misguided MrO fails at his twisted objectives and the wishing that the entire economy fail! In fact, wishing for MrO to fail is also wishing that the economy would succeed!
It’s the same! Your side does it too.
Hmm...passed the ACA (which the majority likes...that's why you can't repeal it 😂), reduced the deficit and unemployment, and grew us out of the Recession that 8 years of Bush and 12 years of a Republican Congress dug us into...I'd say that's a pretty good record. Many say that our current boom is predicated on Obama's sensible economic and foreign policies, not the Trump Effect.
Phaly ... you’re such a hoot! A majority of Americans hate ObamaDoesntCare. The ugly oppressive law had to be passed in the dark of night with MrO’s gun was at the heads of Democrats. Because they dared to stand up to the fascism of MrO, all of the Blue Dogs were purged from the radical leftist government.
The oppressive individual mandate has been eliminated, finally! As a result, Americans are freed from at least a portion of the totalitarian law.
Yay, people are now free to not have health insurance, and freeload off the rest of us when they get sick or injured 🎉🎊🎆
Phaly ... we are free from the oppression of MrO!
Phaly ... the Great Recession was an outcome of the feeble Democrats. MrO was a major player even before he went onto the government dole. As a community “organizer”, MrO trained domestic terrorists like ACORN to terrorize the families of bank loan officers to force them to write loans to credit unworthy individuals. The weight of those loans — which were simply never repaid — caused the collapse.
Think, the 'Feeble Democrats' hadn't held Congress for 12 years prior to the Recession, and it happened during Bush's last year in office. There's nobody to blame for it but the Republicans...you guys were running the show when the economy collapsed.
Phaly ... who is responsible for the corrupt Community Reinvestment Act?
Well let's see...the House passed it by 384-26, and the Senate by 54-19. That would make it a solidly bipartisan bill...and the Glass-Steagall repeal of 1999 was almost unanimous.
Why did so many Republicans vote for these bills, and why did they not repeal them when they had the chance? 'Feeble Democrats' my ass.
Phaly ... which President signed the rotten piece of legislation? Could it have been Mr Clinton, the man with his pants down?
The Community Reinvestment Act was a horrible piece of Democrat legislation.
It was passed in 1977. The Glass-Steagall repeal was '99, and it was passed by a veto-proof majority. Clinton is on-record as opposing it. There was nothing he could do in the face of an almost unanimous Congress...which was majority Republican, BTW.
Who makes laws, the President, or Congress? You should know this.
Now today is the Sabbath, so I suggest we both cool down and let @ptellini 's spirited analysis of Genesis soothe our jangled souls.
Phaly ... both of these horrible laws were signed by Democrats. I get your knee jerk need to protect the man with his pants down, but you conveniently left out that it was Mr Carter that signed the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) into law. Yes, Congress created these horrible laws, but neither was instituted over a presidential veto. Mr Carter owns the CRA.
The CRA was the law that communist lawyers, including Barry Obama used to terrorize bankers into writing not just bad loans, but horrible loans all based on the Democrat formula ... give us what we want or you’re a bigot. Yep, the playbook hasn’t changed, that is still how Democrats “negotiate”.
Thankfully, more Americans are wise to this disgusting ploy. But to suggest that MrO and the Democrat party don’t own the Great Recession is to deny history.
Happy Sabbath to you too.
Bill Maher is an idiot.
He’s saying what all the others are thinking
Bert ... “others” meaning? I’d suggest that Mr Maher does have a constituency for whom he speaks. I’d describe it as the angry alt-left who simply can’t stand to see MrO’s policies of failure replaced with policies of success.
The country is better in so many ways and these angry leftists are still in a 16 month temper tantrum, which doesn’t appear to have an end.
Others as in all the other liberal pundits, democrat politicians, supporters, etc
Yes the angry alt-left is an accurate description
This is why a red tsunami is coming this fall. The Democrats hope for a failing economy, higher taxes, and sanctuary for illegal aliens.
No, it’s never a good idea to root for a recession.
No! It's this kind of anti-American rhetoric that continues to push me away from the left.
