    Decriminalizing drugs is fine. Making me pay for their healthcare…no thanks. Nobody forced you to shoot heroin into veins. You do the drugs, then YOU pay the consequences. It’s called personal responsibility kids.

    If 40,000 die in these red states a month from obesity because they feel that guns and abortion justify voting GOP instead of a party who wants to actually help them , then I’m all for just waiting it out. Darwinism will solve the problem for us.

    Gee, the solution the guest mentioned sounded awfully similar to Bernie Sanders’ campaign platform… then the video cuts off. Lol. Typical.

    Coronavirus will be the end of Trump because this pandemic will illuminate his incompetence for gutting all our health experts…

    Depression is the lack of hope. And leads to substance abuse, including eating junk food. How do we provide hope in a disconnected community? Many (including the government, via tax exemption) think churches and religion is the answer. However, this is failing (or failed too). We need to build REAL communities, and connection…rather than isolation, rugged individualism, and hyper-consumerism in our divided cities and towns.

    Bill Mahar is so gullible and doesn’t even realize it. When a right-wing Trump-loving Republican starts to support a Democratic candidate, that’s when you begin to be skeptical about that candidate.

    wow. Drinking soda & eating chips is not self-medicating. It’s just a bad habit which is hard to kick. Executive functions (frontal lobe, hindered by many possible things (accident, illness, lack of sleep, alcohol, etc.)) play a huge role in that problem. So the path from depression to obesity is very indirect and partial. Facts still matter, esp when you want to solve a real, non-fictional problem.

    If people did the right thing in the first place would any of these issues exist? I am 55 and was on my way to early retirement and creating something for my family that could be passed on for generations. My mothers favorite son, her youngest became jealous. I got pushed aside and lost all of my money plus I was attacked verbally and viciously by my mother. I committed no crime but that guilt trip game that angry women play is what I grew up with. I am on the verge of homelessness as well Herb but also on the verge of doing something very amazing. I no longer struggle with depression but I did as a teenager. I simply have faith in God and I know Bill Maher doesn’t believe in God as he just like my mother think they are God. Irony all around. Does anyone recognize the story from an old book? No not Dr. Seuss. Just have faith and know it ain’t over til it is over and the book I am speaking of speaks of resurrection in the future.

    Here’s a question , how many leaders in a America starting with Trump down would you have to kill to find one with half a brain even a quarter . Someone who is even a million dollars worth to spend on sn election . With people you spend billions of dollars on to ellect or spit out you could solve poverty throughout the whole world .

    You could stop 90% of these deaths by just voting for Bernie…..sounds simple….and it is…..it is not just what Bernie is offering that means so much…..it is what it means….in America it is dog eat dog….that is what Capitalism is all about…..if you don’t eat your friend, he will eat you…..No other western Democracy puts that kind of pressure on their people…….What America doesn’t have that ALL other countries do have…..is a safety net…..you don’t have to kill to survive……Americans don’t think their Country doesn’t care about them…..they know their Country doesn’t care about them……America judges everyone by what they are worth in Dollars and Cents, if you don’t measure up you are trash and are told in no uncertain terms that you are a burden and not worth feeding……
    I am an Australian and we don’t feel like that, we know if we get sick our Government will be there for you with what ever you need to get well, you won’t lose your house because you became ill……If you lose your job you qualify for the Dole for as long as you are out of work, because your fellow Australians care about you when you are down on your luck……..Just knowing that is worth more than you can imagine…….it keeps you sane………
    Australia doesn’t have anywhere near the money that America does…..Why do Americans buy into the Lie that America can’t afford what every other country can afford? It defies Logic……….a Lot of anguish and depression in young people is caused by isolation and expectation……doing your best is never enough……..and even if you work hard and become highly productive member of society……you are always living in the knifes edge….get sick and they will take it off you….that’s no way to live…..and that’s no way to bring up kids…..a safety net, knowing you matter to your country just because you are you……now that is a Great Country!!………and it isn’t America…….but it could be and Berbnie is the only one offering it to you……Just remember God helps those who help themselves…..and Christ help those who can’t……so help yourself and help the youth of America, Vote for Bernie…..don’t believe the BS that America has no money!!

    It’s really unfortunate Nicholas Kristof didn’t mention Universal Basic Income. It’s as close to a silver bullet as we can get…
    Martin Luther King Jr. championed a Guarantee Minimum Income because he knew that in order to help poor people of color, He _also_ had to help poor white americans. Even though Yang’s 2020 campaign is over, He’s still fighting for UBI with his new charity. UBI is greater than Yang’s 2020 campaign, UBI has been a movement for decades. This is a Yang ad that shows how a UBI would help struggling americans.

    I have no desire to understand these people. Never have. They should all go extinct. They’re perfectly fine with oppressing others just as long as they have someone to look down on.
