BILL MAHER: .... Being able to actually see beyond POP CULTURE ....
Another posting past due for this journal ... to honour Mr. Bill Maher . It was my dad who turned me on to Bill, probably at least 20 year's or more back .... back when I didnt even care to watch the tele, or even read a paper (beside's football, hockey, or basketball standing's). And the book's I read were really out of the mainstream, and still part of my home collection of literature, my education didnt come from a school, I had a formal education till 8th grade, which taught me how to do basic math and read and write only, nothing else I got from any school (school's today are much different and far more important to get through)... or gave a rat's ass about politic's of any kind, cause I just figured their all full of shit period ... and never gave any interest to mainstream organized religion's, beside's understanding the danger's and history of them and what purpose they were created to serve .... cause they were just nothing but a power trip too, and frankly boring and of no worth. But yeah .... dad was a big fan and convinced me one day to listen to the man, because he is so straight to the point, and actually reminded me of my dad alot as well. Thanx Dad! I also want to point out, that it was the title of Mr. Maher's programme "Politically Incorrect" back in the early 1990's or so, that inspired the title of this journal here "Politically Depressed".
Most know him as an actor, stand up comedian, and listen to him to be entertained. But I look at the man on a more serious level ... because so much of what this man say's is a clear look at reality and our stupidity ( a "stupidity" were not born with, but embrace by "choice" and out of "laziness" ). I dont see him as a man that is "right or left" at all .... and feel he is beyond this primitive way of thought. I look at this man as a practical realist, not deluded and swayed by the bullshit of the pop culture herd mentality. I have spent more time reading/ viewing political viewpoint's over the last 2.5 year's online, and writing my own, than I ever spent time on in my entire life, yet throughout this journal have been devoted to pointing out every scam, flaw, and piece of BS that I can. It is in many way's sad ... and about as senseless and nauseating at time's as having to hear nonsense about what Jesus think's or some other mythological concept of past or some church service programming it's flock of mindless sheople, or listening to people whine over human sex act's, skin tone/ color variation's, who's God/ Prophet is right/ wrong or other petty concern's. Nothing against folk's belief's here or even the Jesus character, I myself am a spiritualist, ... I just frankly dont see how any of this applies to the issue's of the 21st century, whether even politically, economically, enviromentally or otherwise .... I myself have moral's that I practice too. And sadly most folk's simply want to live with the least amount of turmoil and misery and are basically force fed by this crap to play into, without even seeing what is happening to us, all force fed onto us by these power's that produce this mess. But just wanted to post a couple of many favourite's of video's here of this man of basic natural uncomplicated logic and sense ... no ... I didnt post this for humor, but to get a clear look at reality. THANK YOU MR. MAHER ....
