In these videos, Bill Maher discusses with Rachel Maddow his view on Occupy Wall Street.

One point he makes, echoing Elizabeth Warren, is that rich people do not get that way purely on their own steam. Anyone who attains wealth in the US does so in part due to the benefits of public resources. This is a fact conservatives seem unwilling to acknowledge.

  4. im really getting tired of having to click on this dopey video to respond to you. but listen, youre proving my last point.

Dear sir, large of the old testament were not written by the people whose names are the titles of book, IE, Samuel 2, Esther etc. This does not detract from the whole notion of God, rather it just means we humans screwed it up again. Why are you asking me if Jesus has to be born from a virgin womb. Why dont you ask God when you pray next. Though I think Jesus was born from a virgin womb to indicate he was born from a place of purity.

  6. What is your point? Try and tell me the Tea would be able to answer in an fashion. Just look at the GOP candidates. Ask Perry, Cain or Gingrich those questions and they wouldn’t have a clue.
