Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Special Districts (HBO)

Published on March 7, 2016

Special districts spend more public money than all city governments combined. That’s odd considering most of us don’t know they exist.

    Was I the only one who knew that the position of the Nile on the first map
    at 14:35 was wrong?

    FOR YET ANOTHER WEEK, JOHN OLIVER “FORGETS” TO DISCUSS THE TRANS-PACIFIC
    PARTNERSHIP (TPP). It’s far more important that “special districts” and
    just about everything that he’s discussed–combined. By failing to discuss
    it, he’s letting this monster pass through. It’s NAFTA on steroids and will
    change everything–from decreasing jobs, to increasing drug costs, to
    making national government accountable to mega corporations.

    Another week of TPP fail!

    So I looked up that video with the two mosquito guys and they have another
    video just as sad. Why post them anyway? No one watched the first one, why
    make a second one?

    all of s sudden. :P

    I live in a small town and all anyone does is complain about our library
    district. The library board is always under scrutiny. People even
    complained when the “new” library building had its roof replaced. The
    building was 20 years old. Lol
    School, fire, library people in my area keep tabs on their tax money to a
    ridiculous extent. People even voted against creating a park district
    because they were afraid their tax money would go toward a skating rank!
    The horrors!!! It might be, oh no, fun.

    The first thing I thought when I saw their first Afrika map was “oh they’re
    gonna do that joke again”. I think the Nile and Egypt are a bit too famous
    for the joke to work.

    Well John, at least when you exploit kids to push a political narrative (I
    happen to agree on this one), you don’t say… do what the FineBros did and
    pretend the kids were reacting in their own words while conveniently
    parroting your talking points and delivery cadence. You also managed to not
    exploit kids to say naughty words while defending sex acts and life
    decisions that they were not only too young to understand, but also that
    those acts they were defending, done to them, would be a crime generally
    agreed to be about the worst crime imagineable (referring to FCKH8)

    Props for having some integrity about it. ?

    This is why I hate local government. People always say about how it’s the
    most important government and how it’s the most representative, but the
    reality is that almost no one knows anything about their local government,
    and now apparently there’s dozens more elements to it than we even know?
    People talk about how local government is better because it’s smaller, but
    four districts for the same thing in one city doesn’t sound like efficient
    government to me. And I’ll bet that that city had four of them because
    people kept saying that they needed one, not knowing that they already had
    one. The more complicated government is, the more pieces there are to it,
    the less oversight there is, simply because people don’t have time to keep
    track of it all. People barely have enough time to keep track of what’s
    going on at the national level. We need less local government and more
    consolidation.

    I hate that John Oliver equates lying about smoking marijuana with lying
    about serious drugs like heroin, crack, and cocaine just to make a cheap
    joke. This only helps contribute to the false stigma that marijuana is as
    harmful as these drugs which a large portion of America still believes.
