Gotta Watch: Maher's musings, dump truck chase, train track save

Glenn Beck like L. Ron Hubbard - Bill Maher’s appearance on Sunday’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” is getting a lot of attention online today. The host of “Real Time with Bill Maher” was asked how much he thinks the Tea Party is about religion.  Maher focused on FOX News’ Glenn Beck, saying, “I think he’s doing what some people before him have done, like L. Ron Hubbard, who is a novelist, and decided, ‘You know what? It’s a much easier gig to be a religious leader.’ ”

And Obama more Wayne Brady than Suge Knight - Maher also looked back on President Obama’s first two years, surprised that he’s more Wayne Brady than Suge Knight.

Teen dump truck heist -You may be asking yourself, who would want to steal a dump truck? The answer: one reckless teenager.  This harrowing police video shows the young driver as he rear-ends the police car and speeds away. Officials say his wild ride went on for more than fifty miles.

Close-call train rescue – This heart-stopping video from Spain shows a man as he topples over into subway tracks. Lucky for him, an off-duty police officer jumps in to save him just as a train arrives.

      I'm 53 and employers don't like hiring anyone over 40. It's easier to send our jobs to India and pay nothing. Of course, as far as I could see before my position was eliminated they they were getting what they paid for. ;>)

    Bryan, I guess you'd better become a Democrat because Lord knows, John Boehner ain't gonna do anything to help you.

      I heard Obama say that India and China is booming? The uber left put us in this mess....
      Chew on this...Obama promises and results...
      1) Shovel ready such thing
      2) Green jobs...gone over seas....(France and Spain to bail them out – billions of our money)
      3) Stop outsourcing of jobs...India and China are not poaching American jobs..
      4) "Can't spend our way out of this"....tripled the debt
      5) Get to work for the American people...sent billions oversea then spend nearly a third of his term so far vacationing or campaigning for 2012.
      6) Heatlh care for all...screw job for all
      7) Believe in America...had Hillary admit we abuse people in the US (to China?). Apoligize to nearly every foreign nation that we're an arrogant out of control country.

      do I need to go on? Wake up fool.

      Herein lies the issue between Republican and Democrats. You nailed it. What is John Boehner going to do for you. Actually nothing I hope except draft legislation to promote capitalism that is the engine of growth, prosperity and opportunity for anyone willing to study, work or apply themselves. Check out Milton Friedman's response to Phil Donahue on the subject of greed.

    Best way to boost ones ratings is to take on the big gun. It is doubtful Glen Beck will even respond. This guy Maher ratings pale in comparison to Beck. But hey, CNN let him on to mouth off. They too are getting clobbered by FOX.

      Simply having the highest ratings does not the truth make. FOX watchers operate from the most primitive human instincts, requiring no critical thinking or investigating of the truth. Read a book or two.

      Check the demographic data on FOX viewers Vs. any other news organization. Look at how education and HH income skew.

    I try to actually listen to what someone says before criticizing them. How many commenting here have actually LISTENED to Glenn Beck? I don't agree with everything Beck says or does but far more than Maher.

    Bill Maher is a nut job. He hates God so much he has become an evangelist himself, spewing ideas of his own as fact. Talk about Glenn Beck becoming a preacher, take a look in the mirror bub. Just another wanna be actor who couldn't make it and uses sensationalism to get attention. Sounds a lot like Kathy Griffin. Both Z listers. Only reason he has a job at HBO is because, just like the circus everybody wants to see the freak of nature as it were.
