why the bomb sniffing dogs were called off in the days before 9/11.  The future

of a nation and world ride on knowing the truth. Or we could follow Bill Maher's

 manic advice to drag out and kick the ass of anyone who questions 9/11. 

Personally, I can't stomach watching Bill Maher any more.  It's not because of

Bill Maher, but it's because of the people sitting in his audience who cheered on

the ass kicking of people asking important questions.  These people worshipped

 Bill Maher, whereas I worship the truth, and when Bill Maher was producing

some, I liked watching him.  When Bill Maher suppresses truth, he loses his

appeal.  Its about truth. I'm beginning to understand why the right fears the "left,"

 if their concerns and positions are going to be handled with such fascist fervor. 

On a social level, I agree with Bill Maher and his audiences positions on gay

rights, anti-war, environment, etc.  But, I can't stomach watching them, now that

I've seen they can be just as hob-nail-booted as the right they despise.  It was a

sad day for the left in America. 

As I said, I'm a fan of truth.  I don't worship media personalities.  I outgrew that when I saw Blue Oyster Cult in business suits before a concert when I was 16 years old.  Bill Maher's audience is much older, but they seem to have never understood that the persona projected by someone like Maher is just that.  People let him have the mic, perhaps with agreements and limits of discussion pre-arranged and mutually agreed to.  The future of our nation is not a team sport, and when we are split by "Democrats vs. Republicans" so visciously we all lose.  This dual paradigm keeps us arguing over "flag burning" and side issues, while our nation is led to war based on a 9/11 myth that has never been proven, only stated over and over and over again by corporate media.

 Although the good book  is one those on the right often abuse and misuse to promote division and hatred, its still a pretty good book if you look at what Jesus had to say,  "Watch out for false prophets.  They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.  By their fruit you will recognize them."         -- Jesus; Matthew 7:15-20 

When Bill Maher stridently marched down the aisle on his HBO show, urging security to "kick the ass" of both men and women, who's only crime was to demand answers to questions we should all be asking, I think we caught a glimpse of his fruits.  When we saw his audience of the so-called left acting like brown-shirts, we should all take pause in our acceptance of the right/left paradigm corporate media has cultivated like a garden.
