Re: “Bill Maher Shows Boise his 'Wide Stance'

It was a great show, Maher was hilarious and scored some great points against the far right wing and extreme religious ideas.

Re: “Bill Maher Shows Boise his 'Wide Stance'

This was an awesome show and a breathe of fresh air!!! Was great being in a room full of like minded people in a state that constantly embarrasses its self!!! And don't get me wrong, I love Idaho, I am native, but sometimes this dumbing down of America reaches new heights right here!!! I hope he comes back on a regular basis..I never miss Real Time but it was great to have him in "real time" right in front of me!!! Thanks Boise Weekly!!!

Re: “Meet Idaho's New 'Chief of Schools'

I think anyone who actually pays any attention to Idaho education politics is pissed-off right now. Thanks for not voting you big block of ignorant "I didn't have time" or "I didn't know the issues" millennials and baby-boomers who would have likely voted for Jones if they had read at least one article about the candidates. In an age of technology, no one has the right to claim ignorance as a reason not to vote, and with the ability to register-on-site or do absentee voting, no one can say "I didn't have time" and have it count as a legitimate, actual excuse. Thanks to just 5,700 votes, we now have a superintendent who doesn't know the name of her title, does not have a P.h.D, and was caught plagiarizing her opponents website. If you did not vote, I officially hate you.

Re: “North Korea Claims Proof of Unicorns

People in America laugh at how ridiculous this story is yet they will kill you to defend the stories in the bible. Sad.

For all you people who think god has a place reserved for Bill in hell, guess what? Neither one of those two things exist.

Re: “Bill Maher Tells Boise Weekly Why He Gave $1 Million to Obama

@ William- You're pretty ignorant, or a little slow to make a comment like that... "I did'nt know he was a "pot smoking athiest" and that is the reason why he loves the Democratic party." Where does it say that, that's the reason why he supports the Democratic party. If you read the piece, he gives a handful of reasons why he's supporting Obama. It's idiots like you that only see things the way you want to see them. What a shame. Whether I agree or disagree with Maher is besides the point. The point is, you're an idiot. Get some Vitamin D.

Re: “Bill Maher Shows Boise his 'Wide Stance'

Ummm actually the line was " Republicans use an R because that is the noise a pirate makes when he robs you AND FUCKS YOU IN THE ASS. much better that way! Maher is brave and says how it is without worrying about the consequences. I LOVE HIM! Couple things he did NOT spend the whole time talking about ID. Maybe 5 mins or so! I do not think anyone in the audience had an issue with the Mormon talk. I think they were just like WTF they believe that shit! Hey if the Right can have Beck, O'Reily and Mann Coulter then we have have Maher!

Re: “Portlandia: The White Subcultural Equivalent of a Minstrel Show

It's pretty offensive to compare hipsters and black people. One endures generations of institutionalized racism. One endures ridicule on a little-known cable show. If you think it's a bad show, say it's a bad show. It may be boring or unfunny to mock hipsters, but to suggest there's something morally questionable about it is ridiculous.

Re: “Bill Maher Shows Boise his 'Wide Stance'

Sat next to redneck jackass who shouted out a few times against Bill but he was completely ignored - as he deserved to be. At $65 a seat the jerk spent $130 to be miserable.for two hours. He could have just stayed home, slammed a door on a finger and been miserable for free. Not too bright the right, but then we already knew that, didn't we?

Re: “Bill Maher Shows Boise his 'Wide Stance'

God and heaven definitely exist -- my momma told me right after she told me about Santa Claus. I no longer believe in Santa Claus, of course. The evidence was always just hearsay and imagery, and it turned out she was using him to get me to behave a certain way. It would be so silly to believe anything like that as a grownup.

In Christ,

Re: “Bill Maher Shows Boise his 'Wide Stance'

The show was great! I love Bill Maher and appreciate him coming to Boise. For all you "Christians" who like to judge, maybe you should read your bible some more.....I don't think you're getting it right. For the record I wish he would have spent more time calling out the bullshit of the Mormon religion.

Re: “Bill Maher Tells Boise Weekly Why He Gave $1 Million to Obama

The "mental patient party" is priceless. I just don't understand how limited government and policing a woman's uterus fits comfortably together in the same brain. Either you believe in personal freedom or not. Only a mental patient would exclaim, "Keep your damn government hands off my Medicare!" Maher makes a great point about the GOP being anti-science and anti-knowledge.

Jesus had long hair. So did the apostles. Why can't men today have long hair? It's... Hair. Lol once again why I don't believe in organized religion.

if it said the same thing in the bible, not a single laugh would be had and this would be national news of a true "miracle of god" being discovered.

Re: “Meet Idaho's New 'Chief of Schools'

Idaho is a great place to raise kids. And our education system works ONLY because we have great teachers who care tremendously. My kids are getting an excellent education because of their teachers and inspite of the people at the top.. On the flip side of that, I am also a teacher and I am disgusted with this state. They keep asking for more and giving less. Young, good, teachers come here, get their experience and then leave to states that actually care about teachers and education. Those at the top know that the teachers are going to do their job to the best of their ability because that's why we chose this profession. But we are tired of being taken advantage of and taken for granted.....just tired.... it's soooo defeating. Parents, please let your children's teachers know that you appreciate them. You may be the only positive voice they hear in a day.

Re: “Meet Idaho's New 'Chief of Schools'

More endless embarrassment for Idaho. She rode into office on the coattails of a governor who was widely characterized as only "doing okay" by many who voted for him. A religious zealot is now Secretary of State... Am I overreacting? Nope. If I had overreacted, my comments would be censored.
