Bill Maher. I was watching the Daily show. He was on there promoting his new movie. He said something along the lines of "Part of a America is almost like a progressive European nation, but it is being kept down by ignorant redneck white trash." He also knocked Sarah Palin, saying it is "scary that this woman believes in the Bible literally, could be our vice president".

I'm all for freedom of speech, but some folks need to be drug out and shot.

idiots should be given a street corner and a bullhorn so more people will know how big of an A__hole they are. and in Bill Maher's case so his stupidity could reach more people than his show does.

What, exactly, does being Jewish have to do with the point you're trying to make? Do you have a problem with Jewish people?

The fact that Congress has decided to take the jewish holiday off during this current crisis speaks volumes about why people are critical of the Jewish influence in our system.

Congress takes off Christian holidays all the time. Why be bothered by them taking a Jewish holiday? There are a bunch of Jews in congress, after all.

As the number of muslims in the US congress increases, I expect at some point muslim holidays will be taken off as well.

And the "Jewish influence on our system" comment. Hmmmm, do you mean that the Jewish influence is somehow different than the Irish influence on our system (St. Paddy's day, irish cops & the Kennedys) or the French influenece (statues of Lafitte & Lafayette, french cuisine and french owned pharmaceutical companies)?

I think people ar suspicious of the "jewish influence" because on average Jews are a little more intelligent, a little better educated and more affluent than the general US population. That doesn't mean that there's some kind of Jewish conspiracy against non-Jews (which I think some people on this site believe), it just means they are a very successful ethnic group.

So people of the Jewish religion are more intelligent? Or Israelis?

So you have no problems with the number of Israeli dual nationalist loyals we have in high places of government and in high positions of foreign policy decision making sectors of our administration? If we had the same number of Muslims in our government and administration, and banking system, I'm pretty confident you'd be flipping the hell out.

And your blanket statement of Jews being more intelligent than the average American, is funny. It may be true, because somehow they've gotten most of us to blindly support them and jump when they say jump. Hell, they even got us to buy them almost everything they own and fight their battles for them.. So in that respect, you are spot on.

But your reference to the Irish and St. patricks day.. You mean catholics, and not Irish, right? A major problem with this country is also the Catholic influence as well and I can go on and on about that too. If Congress was taking a Catholic holiday off today, I would be complaining about that as well. But to a lesser extent, since the Catholics don't appear to have full control over our banking system and our federal reserve, which is the root of the problem in the first place. Which is where the irony comes in.

I believe first off, the damage being done to this nation by people like Bill Maher is more damaging than if troops invaded shooting. Free speach is important, however letting people lie is not.

I have no idea why anybody would be thinking this apparent AETHIST has any ties to any religion. If he is Jewish, it would be in the same catorgory as Hitlery being Baptist. He would only be attending to gain some monetary advantage. His beliefs in God would not be a reason for him to attend.

This country has a cancer, and that cancer is the communistic and socialistic views that are going to turn the populace into slaves of Government.

It will be slow until the violence that they supposedly abhorred will be thier tool to bring us freedom living people in line.

It sure is strange how those that admit violence is sometimes needed are the ones that are least wanting to see it actually done, while the folks that decry violence, are the ones that are the most viscious and decietful about it use.

So Duelist, you have a very good reason to Angry.

Yes, on average. Jews make up 2% of the US population, but are disproportionately present in fields like the basic sciences, law, medicine and finance: all fields that require lots of brains.

So you have no problems with the number of Israeli dual nationalist loyals we have in high places of government and in high positions of foreign policy decision making sectors of our administration? If we had the same number of Muslims in our government and administration, and banking system, I'm pretty confident you'd be flipping the hell out.
No, I am not and no I wouldn't be if thery were muslims. As long as they serve well and respect the laws of this country than I don't care what religion or ethnic backgound they have.

And your blanket statement of Jews being more intelligent than the average American, is funny. It may be true, because somehow they've gotten most of us to blindly support them and jump when they say jump.

And...this is where you show yourself to be a nutjob. I'd like to go into further details about how nonsensical the above quote, but I don't have a half hour right now. I'll try to post in more detail later.

Oy vey es mere, you really are a nut, aren't you!:confused: The Jews have "full control" over our banking system and federal reserve? Really? Where do you get that information from, Lyndon LaRouche? Mel Gibson, maybe?

Whoa, whoa, whoa! I don't care which religion you talk about, they all have a few chowder-heads well as saints! But the thing nobody seems to be noticing is that GOVERNMENT has decided to take all the religious holidays off!

I just can't decide whether that is a good thing, or a bad thing ;)

yeah, I'm a nutjob because you don't like what I'm saying, even though history shows that the US has spent more money and effort supporting Israel than we spend on our school system.. Maybe THAT is why they are so much smarter than we are..

And maybe that is why we are willing to go to war with a country simply because they threaten to attack Israel, who, by the way, has their own, perfectly capable military, supplied with nukes that we sold them.. And I'm the nut job.

Don't tell me that we don't jump when they say jump.. We've been doing it since they swindled the American people into supporting their stealing the land that didn't belong to them in the first place.

Lets all teach our kids Jewish songs in elementary school and hide the war crimes created by them, while exploiting the retaliation that the Palestinians are forced to live their lives by and call THAT terrorism so our children will be brainwashed by it by the time they can think for themselves.. Those horrible Palestinians.. How could they be so cruel and crazy and want to hurt Israel, our ally.. pffft.. You keep on believing your fabricated history of Israel all you like.. I STILL see the irony of the congressional holiday during this crisis being a Jewish one.

So who gets to decide what is a lie and what is not?
You?
The government?
Homeland security or Karl Rove? Nancy Pelosi?
If you don't agree with his stance you combat it by supporting the television shows which oppose his views. Or you turn off your TV.

I watch Bill Maher on occasion. Sometimes I agree with him. Sometimes he pisses me off. But I defend his right to say what he wishes. We all should. Squashing the speech of those we disagree with is a giant leap towards fascism. And we've taken enough of those lately.

Before this gets completely sidetracked into whether or not Jews have undue influence in our government and/or society, which may be true, lets look at whats really important. The current state of our economy is, IMHO, the worst crisis we as a nation have faced in my lifetime. It DOES BOTHER ME that our elected officials would take time off, for ANY REASON... much less a religious holiday. They need to get some cots, put them in the House and the Senate, and not come out until some sensible solution, which DOES NOT INCLUDE some massive expenditure of money, is worked out. They need to tighten up the fiscal belt, bring the troops home, and stop wasting money that WE DONT FUC#ING HAVE. My 2 cents.

By the way, I sent e-mails to both my Senators telling them if they voted for the bailout today, I would do everything in my power to see them out of office. It is my opinion that the bailout is an attempt to buy back toxic debt from foreign investors, putting it all squarely on the US taxpayer. However you feel about it, I urge you to contact your Senator, right NOW!

Sincerely, EQV

I'd hope I've earned enough credit to get away with saying this without being accused of being a racist ...

I think what you've stated above is probably true. However, there is logic whcih links your reasoning to a possible explanation as to why many people have a problem with Jews.

If Jews, on average, tend to be better educated and more affluent, then logic would follow that they'd find themselves in positions of leadership more often. It could also be said then that a greater percentage of Jews can be considered part of the elite.

If my logic is sound, then it makes sense that more people would have a problem with Jews. Here's why, I think the distrust stems from the thought that the people above you are screwing you over. If those above you often tend to be Jewish, then it all makes sense.

Personally, I do my best to judge people based on their character as an individual as there exceptions to every stereotype.
