  • I have decided, as an act of personal insurance (and laziness), from now on define my moral decisions on what John Oliver have decided. I really trust his decision more than my own! Thats mental, but true.

  • Yeah, NOtown, send me to this steaming pile of garbage after a TimCast video. Because people who watch Tim's stuff definitely also like to watch a sellout comedian talk nonsense to them. Sure sure.

  • Slap lawsuits are just so the rich can suppress free speech of the rest of the people. How the president of the US can openly brag about allowing more of them while being applauded by the same people who worship the first amendment is a perfect summary of American politics.

  • Watching these older shows in 2021 and hearing the audience laugh.... it feels like a generation ago, when we gathered together in a group like that. Love the show, but now everything feels bittersweet and nostalgic. In a way.

  • Well, my life was cut to pieces (literally) by Right wing Trump mostly Evangelical weird people in the past 4 years and totally ruined me - literally. So if the right wing opened up the libel laws - I have not yet been able to sue their butts, and I have some PRETTY STRONG CASES like getting my Teaching job cut for religious reasons (stated to me), in a public school system (which devastated my life). Yep - they can sue - I'm being discriminated on the job right now due Disability discrimination - I'm going to have my job cut and won't be able to afford my rent - but do you think I can sue them? Of course not.

  • Perhaps the worst scam in US history is neoliberals’ Russia-gate. They lost to a TV host. Instead of reflection, they latched onto a moronic conspiracy theory for now five years. The Russia-gate hoax and Ukraine-impeachment “entertainment” was concocted by Obama/Hillary/Biden/Pelosi, Schumer, etc. and their intelligence and DNC executives on behalf of their Wall Street and military industry donors FREE Assange - our “freedom-loving” media is totally silent - ask yourself WHY !!

  • As a journalist, I reported on a false "men's seminar" actually run by radical feminists. The victims paid for tickets to discuss men's issues and instead were blindsided by sexist bigots. Naturally, they tried to sue me. These days, my state has an anti-SLAPP law that makes it extremely profitable to DEFEND a SLAPP suit, so I say, just try it again, ladies. Just try it.
