    So if Bill Maher actually started posting on this forum - would you call him a troll too, since we share much of the same opinion?
    Opinions are like assholes; we all have them and they don't smell good. You are mistaking facts and reality with opinion. I have repeatedly shown you are basically full of shit and or lying. I have provided factual citations to many of your blatantly false assertions. This is "pwning" you; repeatedly demonstrating you are a lying idiot. Opinion: I wish highly religious people did not exert power over the political system. Most people, including moderately religious people, will probably agree with that. Idiotic, outlandish, and easily demonstrated to be false assertion of fact.
    The lack of religious kooks and closed minded conversatives in other countries is a big plus.
    This is where I have "pwned" you and will continue to do so. It is clear that many other countries have religious kooks, both liberal and conservative ones. Thus endeth the lesson.

    Could you define "other countries?"

    Well, he said this earlier:

    Now let me ask you a question: what do you think America would be like if the country was primarily athiest? Maybe more like Holland or Canada at the very least?

    It's when I started to figure out he was Canadian. Holding Canada forward as a country to be exemplified in this context is exceedingly funny, as the current PM is seen as a member of the religious right.

    This was a little bit of "pwning" that I have refrained from using but this seems like a great time to put it out there [​IMG]

    Of course, unlike Nice Shot, I can back my assertions.

    What can I say? I write much the way I speak ... with pregnant pauses ... to allow for ... antici...pation.

    I am speaking from actual experience in living in many other countries (all over the UK, Canada, Australia, Greece, etc.) and I can sincerely tell you that no country is as hard core religion focused as the United States, which your own country describes as a Christian nation. Other countries don't have the dumb fucks that you have living in the south who worship Jesus - but hate blacks, gays and any kind of progressive thinking whatsoever, but marrying their cousin sounds like a good idea. They make Forrest Gump look like a candidate for mensa.

    Yes every country does have their religious kooks and the current Canadian prime minister is conservative, however - this doesn't negate the fact that Canada has many more freedoms than the United States has. Look if cocaine was ever going to become legal in the world, it would happen in Canada long before the United States. The laws on pot and prostitution are much more lax in Canada over the United States.

    We also don't have the censorship problems and religious groups that complain about Family Guy every fucking week. Have you ever tried watching Pulp Fiction on TBS? It's a completely different movie than I think Tarantino intended. In Canada, they show it UNCUT on local basic television - not cable. Stations in Canada will show The Sopranos uncut - not the hatchet job done on A&E. Same goes for movies - totally uncut on local TV, not like on NBC, CBS, ABC, AMC and so forth. How do you explain this - isn't America all about freedom of speech and against censorship? Obviously not. Canada is much more advanced in this capacity.

    I really got a laugh at this:

    A parents group is threatening CBS affiliates with challenges to their broadcast licenses if they air the network's new comedy with a title that alludes to an obscenity.

    The Parents Television Council, which monitors decency issues, criticized CBS for picking up a comedy series called "(Bleep) My Dad Says" that is based on a popular Twitter feed. Instead of the word, the CBS title uses a series of symbols.

    The group says it will challenge the broadcast license of any CBS affiliate that airs the series or promotions for it before 10 p.m. CBS has scheduled the comedy for Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. It stars William Shatner as the father whose politically incorrect musings are put out on Twitter by his son.

    Tim Winter, president of the Los Angeles-based organization, said he was aware that CBS was developing a series based on the Twitter sensation, but "we couldn't imagine that a network would actually name a program either with an expletive or with the expletive ostensibly bleeped out.

    "We're talking here not about a Twitter feed, we're talking about broadcast television that requires a license to use the airwaves," he said.

    Simply pathetic. Boy, America is pretty cutting edge when it comes to censorship when they have a groups complaining about $#*!

    Can we get this thread locked or moved in to DT already? At first it was fun, then it got a bit tired, then it got annoying, then frustrating, but now it's just down right awful. The answer is yes, some people do like Bill Maher, and some of them might feel so passionate about his views that they feel compelled to rape a thread about him incessantly while screaming crude renditions of his argument. The End.

    Why I was in Ft. Worth just a couple of weeks ago ... for a wedding it was ... someone was marrying his cousin. I refer to the alphas among this type as Pitbulls for Jesus ... and they are everybit as cute and cuddly.

    Yes, the preceding pages certainly demonstrate I cannot rebut your drivel. [​IMG]

    Last post to you, troll. This thread is now in the wrong forum so I'm ignoring it. You will be a fine, fine addition to the CE for the liberals though. [​IMG]

    At some point ... it becomes a waste of otherwise good time. It's you vs. a nice Erna Schein ... and the Cemetery 06 Cabernet wins.

    Well I know that nobody can argue my last post, so if this is the end of the thread, it looks like I came out on top.

    The fact that those people exist in the U.S. is a testament to our freedom, because they have a right to feel the way that they do. I certainly do not agree with religious fanatics, but I understand that their existence is a necessary result of a society that encourages free thought.
