Bill Maher’s HBO program might be on hiatus, but that doesn’t stop the Obama-supporter from making inflammatory remarks about other Americans.

At his blog Friday, Maher wrote that the President should use the current budget crisis to implement a carbon tax as a “personal &#!@ you to the Koch brothers”. …

This retard may want to be careful what he hopes for. With the huge amounts of gas he passes, he’ll be broke in no time.

We may need a lottery to see who gets Maher when the civil war comes.

the man should be taxed for the crap which comes out of his mouth.

As for a war, well if all conservatives move out of those liberal states and move to swing states and red states like moving out of MA, IL, NY, VT, ME, CT, RI, CA, WA, OR and moved to NM, CO, FL, VA, NC then we would win every election and then we can pass laws in our states which the elft hates and thus they move back to their liberal socialist hell holes

Why is there a myth that the Koch brothers are conservative? They are pro-abortion, pro-same-sex marriage, pro-taxes, etc. etc.

We will pay the tax at the gas pump and on our electric bill.

Liberals eat their own, especially if they have a faint stench of either conservatism or libertarianism about them.

I think that their father founded CATO. They are obviously not libertarian, since they are pro-taxes and socialist. They don’t want smaller government, they just want to use the government to enrich themselves.

our side never mentions Soros

The Koch Brothers myth was created to counter the amount of press Soros was getting, particularly from Glenn Beck. Only after Beck dedicated an entire hour to Soros in November 2010 did the Koch Brothers protests start popping up.

And the libertarians have really got the Left coming and going, albeit subtly. Have you come across the epithet "Kochtopus?" It was coined by none other than Murray N. Rothbard.

Idiot. Oil refining - and oil production technology - are two of the few competitive advantages we have left in the world.

Great idea, Bill. It's not popular to tax the poor directly so make them pay more taxes by raising the price of the goods they buy. /s

Carbon tax....Hell no! We need to be paid to use carbon. Recent data
shows cooling for the last 16 years. More carbon is needed in the air to reduce this cooling trend.

Agreed, there was virtually no mention of Koch before Beck started attacking Soros, and I monitor some of the libtard sites and can attest to this.

Maher’s opinion on any subject is no more than a Buffalo fart in the wind. It is of no importance whatsoever, no matter how much it might stink for a tiny fraction of a second.

This is the liberal view of the purpose of government. To exact revenge on enemies by the legislation of unjust laws. Our society is sick and evil.

good point, strange how the left hates rich people but they get most of their support from the north east and the west coast where higher incomes earners live and how many millionaires support them too ARF

I would strongly support an entertainment tax, a special tax for Hollywood types. In fact, Boehner should propose that, if the had balls.

When Bill Maher dies and is buried, there’ll be two lines to visit his grave; the short line with people bringing flowers will be liberals, the long line of people with full bladders will be conservatives.

Every movement needs an enemy. Rather than examine why they have failed, the ‘Progressives’ find a scapegoat and train their minions to emote whenever key words are given. (Dog whistle) The Koch Brothers a the trigger.
my german mother taught me not to hate. You become that which you hate. I never want to be like the ‘Progressives’. I will remain calm and pull folks off the rail cars.

Amen to that. I think there are a lot of great, well-meaning people on this site who it would help to be reminded of that.

It is hard, however, to remain calm while we’re operating under crisis policies (’Never let a crisis go to waste!’ ala Rahm) Emotions rise to the level of the opposition’s. which is the goal of those trying to create the crisis. I always look behind the scenes to see the real trouble whenever the ‘Progressives’ present another crisis, cause that’s the real issue.

Corporations are merely tax collectors. The money to pay the Carbon Tax comes from oil consumers or the middle class will ultimately pay. Consumers can decide not to use fuel, though.
I haul fertilizer from Koch Industries, Cincinnati,OH. I plan to add a carbon surcharge if necessary. Let people decide not to eat.

Just goes to show what a moron the nose is. Corporations pass taxes and other expenses on to their customers. Otherwise they soon go out of business and there are no employed people to tax so Obamas people can sit at home on their fat asses.

A little russian and nazi history, most if not all recognizable and influencial supporters were eventually the first to go at the hands of thier adoring leaders. This may pose a problem for those seeking a fresh target
