Advice for Democrats

Bill Maher offered up some advice for Democrats in this 2017 video that's pretty funny.

I wish more liberals were like Maher. The personal divide would not be nearly as wide or deep if that were the case. I disagree with him on almost everything but I could still see myself laughing with him over a beer...

Liberals are anti-human. If you don’t see things their way, then they give you some secular judgement instead of telling you you’re going straight to hell. Didn’t agree w/ Obamacare? RACIST! the power trip gained momentum from there. And here we are. When Hillary lost, everyone was sexist. It had absolutely nothing to do with the ACA being the poison pill for the Democratic Party in America. They got drunk off their own Kool-aid for too damn long with wonton accusations for 8 f’n years and that’s why it’s so hard for most conservatives to give creeds new to, much less believe, Russian interference. Lol. Half of them of just don’t care, and are all like “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Ahh well.

Maher just hoped that a recession would strike the US so it would be blamed on Trump. He can suck eggs.

If the party stuck to its true course to support meaningful raises in the minimum wage, real tax reform and a sensible move toward single payer they would likely have elected Bernie and a congress that would support sensible legislation on important issues. Transgender is as meaningful as eating live goldfish and sitting on flag poles was 100 years ago.

5:38 pm Please look up the definitions of liberalism and conservatism. They are not what propagandists for either party tells you.

I would point out to you that conservatives throughout the 50s were for abortion because conservatives don't think the government should be interfering in adult medical decisions. The founder of the National Review was for the legalization of drugs for the same reason.

Both parties , for propaganda purposes find the extremists and crazies in the other party and tell you they are representative. They are NOT.

I know that not all conservatives are racists, but some are. Not all liberals are easily offended over nonsense but some are. I know both conservatives and liberals who can make mountains out of molehills.

The fact is that extremists are now in control of both parties. That is each parties' base. GOP extremists have been strategically more effective and better financed. As a result they have gained more ground by appealing to libertarians and fiscal conservatives who make up a significant percentage of those who actually care about individual independence and who are more likely to put Nation before party or personality or GET EMOTIONAL.

Your little rant was emotional. Whether you rage or cry like a baby, your emotions are in charge. Two year old children have a temper tantrums and do both because their brains haven't developed and they haven't learned anything of value to help them make good decisions.

I want logic , reason , and solutions that can be supported by facts and history. I don't want lies ( including those of omission). I don't want slogans and quips and buzz words.

8:46, you rule.

As for Maher, he's an equal opportunity offender. In this case, he's got the Democrats squirming. Trump is in the White House because the Democrats were so anxious to make history that they nominated a poorly prepared black man who got elected, and then thought they could do the same for any woman they put up. Clinton was experienced, but too few Democratic wheeler dealers could see that her "experience" was mostly a mass of opportunistic ineptitude.

I favor impeaching Trump, who is definitely a "madman," as Maher says. But that doesn't help the Democrats if they nominate someone like Kamala Harris, who is a conflation of Obama and Clinton. It's not that she's a sort of black female; she is no more ready for the Presidency than Obama or Trump.

All I want is a grown-up.

7:13 am You response to this thread is bizarre.

The assumption that voicing one's opinion via a vehicle advertised as comedic political satire would make a person a target for assassination is not the reaction of someone operating with a full deck of cards.

Do such assassins exist? Sure.

But, sane and educated people know assassination doesn't work. You can't kill thoughts, ideas or opinion through violence or imprisonment. You kill thoughts, ideas or opinions by proving the flaws or with better ideas, thoughts and opinions.

Assassins create martyrs and conflict. And, in the case of the latter, you should contemplate that your side, even if victorious, is not likely to remain victorious if their thoughts, ideas and opinions can't stand the test of time.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
