......And we are being told by spokesmen for the White House to watch what we say. We are being admonished not to use one of the things that makes us great. We are being told not to use our voices. And if you don't think it matters, and if you don't think these things snowball, and if you don't think overreaction is a possibility at a time like this, go back and watch your DUCK SOUP or your DR. STRANGELOVE and remember that no matter how bizarre art attempts to paint human behavior, it inevitably falls short of reality. This time, we are just being told to watch what we say. And we're being told by someone who will edit transcripts of events in order to make the permanent record more palatable. It's doublespeak. And when I hear the American public being told to watch what it says... when I feel like someone's telling me that I am not allowed full and free use of my voice... well, I'm using mine, and I'm giving BasicAlias a place to use his, and even if Bill Maher was a total jackass to Harry on his show, I would offer this forum to Maher himself if he was booted from ABC. I'd offer it because I feel that's a more patriotic act than sticking a flag on my car. Liberty is only valuable for those who use it.


Read the full creepy story here. Maybe a screw up, maybe intentional...

the intention of the person's comment is lost in translation here--

that person isn't really being held by their beliefs, but rather their imperception.

its obvious that maher is making comments here that are supposedly humorous to him (not really to me, but whatever)-- and misunderstood that these comments were indeed aimed at political leaders-- assumed because we are taught to hate those who feel this way-- that this person was heartless or something.

essentially, he has his idea in the right place-- he's just stupid.

so i think.

I quoted this portion because I found it quotable. If you see the whole article, you see where I got it and that it's more just a summing up of that person's opinion of events.
aintitcool news (heh... I typed "tit") has this free and easy style with the rhetoric.
