Bill Maher on Republicans, Country-of-Origin Meat Labeling, and the United States of You Don’t Wanna Know

By Elaine Magliaro

Last night, Bill  Maher did a funny “New Rules” segment about the Republican party’s “fondness for axing both country-of-origin meat labeling and the estate tax…” He talked about House Republicans pushing “for a measure that would ban meat producers from including country-of-origin information regarding their products.” Maher wondered “how such a law could be phrased as a benefit to consumers.”

Maher suggested that the party’s new mantra should be “Eat shit and die.” He said the new regulation  was about shielding corporations from people – not saving people from corporations. Maher asked, “How do you write that law in a way that explains that law is good for people? What do you name it, the ‘Freedom From Information Act?’

Maher also had a few words to say about Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma.

“Remember this a*shole?” Maher said before displaying a picture of Inhofe and explaining that Inhofe threatened to convene hearings he said would counter NASA’s “bias” regarding climate change research.

“Yes, we need to balance the facts with the anti-facts,” Maher said sarcastically. “Because we’re the United States of You Don’t Wanna Know.”

    So glad I like fruits and vegetables and they are readily available from local farmers. I’ve also restarted sprouting and I’ve put out a few plants of my own. I can’t make it all the way through the winter with my frozen vegetable soups but I’m going to try drying veggies and fruits for late winter soups. If it works out this year, next year I’ll just dry the veggies (take less space and energy until used).

    Rick Santorum: Redirect global warming effort to fighting gay marriage ‘for the survival of our country’

    Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum argued over the weekend that President Barack Obama should redirect the energy that he has been putting into fighting climate change into promoting heterosexual marriages “for the survival of our county.”

  5. blouise says:

    Well, Santorum should practice what he preaches by using his bully pulpit to demand that Sarah Palin find a husband for her daughter thus promoting heterosexual marriage. He also needs to start haranguing the Cheneys. Once he’s cleaned up his own republican house, then he can start on the democrats.

  6. Bob Kauten says:

    So…Obama should fight climate change by promoting heterosexual marriages?
    Help me understand this.
