    Bill I love how you are advocating climate change but please address the
    detrimental effects of animal agriculture on it!! Everyone claps at Bill’s
    talking points on fish disappearing but most of those people are probably

    Wow… the depth of Republican lack of empathy hit my like a brick back
    when Dick Cheney changed his tune on gayness after he found out his
    daughter was gay. I’d never heard this publicly addressed until this. I
    guess this validates my own assessment.

    I’ll say this. being for gay rights because you have a gay kid is still

    Seriously politics are so fucked up these days… We constantly bombarded

    the democrats are the ones that created the KKK as political weapon!… Oh
    right, now they’re screaming for the help of republicans and are getting
    the cold shoulder. Sucks to be you. You deserve it democrats, you fucking
    deserve it. You demos. created Detroit, Canada, Sweden, Germany, Norway,
    France, Spain, the entire Middle East to go fucking berserk and other
    lunatic asylums, look at what you’ve done! Aren’t you proud for ushering in

    I really don’t understand people who can only feel empathy if if happened
    to them personally.
    I had a manager at work who was quite harsh on some mothers, until he got
    kids himself.
    I can’t get my head around that. I really don’t understand that there can
    be people who function like that.

    The good old Bill Maher is back, I wouldn’t be so quick in judging
    Republicans for the lack of empathy when a few months back you were
    suffering by the same problem, but Maher is very attune to his audience, so
    when he had seen Dawkins and Harris fall down by their own stupidity, and
    had seen how much the liberals hate them, he finally keep his mouth shut.

    La gente confundida con falta de empatía, racista y con doble moral son en
    su mayoría los religiosos, Bill Mahler criticando a los republicano que
    vendrían a ser como los mochos de PAN-PRI-PVEM, es tal su falta de empatía
    que solo pueden sentir empatía cuando la experimentan en carne propia :
    Hasta los mas mochos se suavizan ante la homosexualidad cuando tienen un
    hijo homosexual
    Son relajados con las drogas, si tienen un hija drogada.
    Son buenos ante los Mexicanos cuando tienen un esposa Mexicana.
    Están en contra del aborto mientras sean otras personas:
    2:57 “En el tema del aborto Dan Quayle dice estar 100% en contra del aborto
    y luego se le pregunto ¿Qué haría usted si su propia hija quedara
    embarazada?” y el contesto que hablaría con ella le aconsejaría y
    respetaría cualquier decisión que tomara”
    Estas personas tienen un desorden de personalidad en especial los racistas,
    se han identificado con un grupo, con un concepto, están apartados de su
    esencia, de su personalidad primaria, que lleguen a puestos de poder se
    puede evitar, con exámenes psicológicos para todas las personas que vayan a
    ocupar un cargo de representación popular o de una función publica
    (especialmente las de seguridad) y las que tenga un desorden tan grave como
    es ubicar su personalidad en un grupo de personas o en una idea, deben ser
    rechazadas y recomendarles tratamiento, es una clara psicosis, solo se
    deben aceptar a las personas que su identidad no este dividida, aceptar
    gente psicótica en las decisiones publicas permite todas las políticas que
    lastiman personas, al medio y a otros seres, en resumen políticas que nos
    lastiman a todos incluidos ellos mismos (aunque no se den cuanta).
    Es grave como llegan hasta los cargo de máxima representación como aquí en
    México o en EUA, ahora mismo un candidato que representan un peligro a la
    seguridad mundial como es Donald Trump con un nivel de conflicto mayusculo,
    como lo delata estar en contra de los inmigrantes mientras es descendiente
    de inmigrantes y se a casado dos veces con inmigrantes…

    Why would it puzzle you that they would praise their family that came to
    the country legally, especially considering they have many times stated
    they support legal immigration, and then turn around and attack those who
    break the law and come to the country illegally?

    The difference is pretty damn clear cut unless you live in a delusional
    fantasy land in which people breaking the law are the same as those who
    follow the law.

    As much as I like Bill Maher, I think one of his arguments really hurt

    If climate change led to a shark eating Chris Christie I’m pretty sure
    conservatives and liberals alike would be “About time! Thank you climate
    change. More climate change please.”

    Empathy is not an inherit trait. We are all selfish by nature. It’s part of
    our self-preservation instinct. Almost all of us learn to sympathize
    through experience. Either we experience the need for sympathy or have
    loved ones in need, which forces us to feel empathy.

    YOu think they are not to good because they only feel empathy when their

    all sypathies for anything if a member of the family suffers from these
    failings and not content with that, their wish do do for each other and
    meleads them to make up sins for family members, sins and bad motives. THe
    t allcholic member of the family is very well positioned socially so she
    does for me as merrily as the others do, which turns me, also into one of
    those family members who has lost sypathies for the rest. My family are,

    They are just more scared of the markets crashing because fossil fuel
    shares crash, bringing about a second share of hardship for the poor than
    they are of climate change.
    You have to convince them they can stay rich and stop climate change. Bet
    they can, they are as sharp as anything about keeping in where the money
    is. They sure knew how to make sure it was the poor who suffered from the
    bonds bubble exploding and even how to increase their turn to the right
    after it by explaining how much more necessary than it had ever been it was
    to help the rich,now the economy was so bad that the rich needed a lot of
    help to provid new jobs, when the only thing the rich really need is
    buyers, which is what they get with the wellfare state. What the poor and
    everyone else need, is for billionaires or their businesses, to be taxed so
    that it was impossible to get that rich , it was not simply inflation that
    turned millionaires into multi multi billionaries ist was the crazy
    policies of the right. We need business to be taxed in a more reasonable
    way and the money redistributed to others who could start new small
    businesses. Too many monopolies was what in the end did for liberal
    economics in the ninteenth century.
