81 thoughts on “Bill Maher on California Income Taxes: ‘Liberals – You Could Actually Lose Me’

  1. This quote strikes me as odd:
    “You liberals could lose me…”
    Is he actually trying to position himself as not being a liberal Utopian statist? AND, does he actually think anyone is buying this crap?

  2. Boy, that’ll hurt ’em Bill.  Where’s he think he’s going? I kinda know where an atheist libertine who likes to keep his money can land…but, I’m not in the mood for the argument.

  3. Typical liberal.

    Tax the other guy, but when it hits home….Whoo boy!!!

    BTW, did you see the incredulous look on Maddow’s face when Maher said that?

  4. Gee, Maher, we REALLY feel badly for you! Poor baby! Life is a beeotch! Deal with it, idiot.
    I hope they take every dime you ever made for the rest of your life. Sucks to be a disenchanted liberal idiot.

    I’ve been a writer for the Tea Party for
    three years because they hauled away my old Democratic Party and drove it over
    a cliff. This is the same one that Obama is currently making one of the old
    lawyer jokes popular again. Robert Kennedy was a friend of mine and nwhen they
    killed him that terrible Tuesday I left the party, American politics and
    America. The band and I moved to West Berlin (and
    joined the USO) where John Kennedy made that famous speech. The folks there
    still remember him fondly as a protector and a savior for the west. When
    Barrack “the terribler” spoke there they had no idea what they were dealing
    with. Now, when they hear the name Obama and they get angry or they break out
    in derisive laughter. “Der ist aber klein” they say. (he is a small person)
    Last week the most important thing happened. Jimmy Stewart in the guise of Rand
    Paul came back to Washington.
    But you know what? 60 Minutes forgot to cover the story. This formerly
    respectable program is so lame, it takes me and hour and a half to watch it.
    Visit Jimmy Travis and his band on Facebook.

  6. Just a few months ago Maher gave a million dollars to some liberal cause,  can’t recall which one and I don’t care to recall, , with that said , Maher is already lost and has been for years.

  7. Just regurgitating the liberal extremist double standard.
    Higher taxes are good for you, but not me.

      The free thinking liberals in Europe were a little ‘slow on the uptake’ back in the 30’s too. “Peace in our time”, you know. 😉 😉
      Jhe Jews were the second group to go to the concentration camps. The ‘free thinkers’ Hitler didn’t need any more once he gianed complete power, were the first. Hey Rev. Wright, and Bill Ayres, ya listening? 😉 😉

      1. tinlizzieowner rocco11 I don’t think King Barry will banish Bill or Jeremiah to the Tower; rather, he’ll put them into lavish “witness protection programs” where they won’t need to be seen or heard from again.

        1. TimeForAnarchy tinlizzieowner rocco11 
          You talking about the ‘Jimmy Hoffa’ witness protection program? 😉 😉

  8. I guess the “redistribution of wealth” really stinks when it’s YOUR wealth the liberals are redistributing! And when various state, local, and Federal governments take 60% of what you make away from you, it’s easy to see why even someone like Maher is now “seeing the light.” Problem is, it’s jerks like him who brought on this situation. Now let’s see him have the stones to do something about it. Will he finally throw Obama under the bus in protest? Don’t count on it. To do that, he’d have to admit that he was wrong, and liberals NEVER, EVER, do that.

  9. How long did it take Bill Maher to learn this lesson? And they call us the ignorant ones? His tax bill is an issue this week for Bill, however when Rand Paul stood in the Senate and asked for answers about killing American citizens, Bill, mocked him. When Julien Assange went on his show and talked about the lack of due process in the age of Obama, Bill talked about Sarah Palin. Somehow, for Bill, the only concerns he can relate to are his own personal finances. And now he thinks about leaving California because he can afford to. What happens to the folks who cannot leave? They are left with the mess his voting helped to create.

    1. jondos When it finally put a dent in his own wallet.  It’s not just income taxes that are insane, it is sales tax (some cities are 9-11%), government fees (these rats will put a fee an anything they can), expensive regulation, etc…

  10. This jerk, should distribute all his money, isn’t that what liberals believe?

    1. Proudhispanicconservative Their vision is this, what’s theirs is theirs and what’s yours is theirs. This whole liberal machine, the regime, the media, every professed know-it-all commentator/activist/nanny? All smoke & mirrors. Furthermore, an ideology haphazardly structured. You come across a lib on the street, dont argue with them, for they walk with a crutch.

    2. Proudhispanicconservative 
      Well, let’s put it this way.
      “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need”.
      Karl Marx
      “Share the wealth”.
      Barack Obama
      Hey Maher, should you be complaining about what your dears leader expects of you? That’s kind of ‘unpatriotic’ isn’t it, you filthy Capitalist. 😉 😉

  11. The sad part is that these leftists ruin their states with their moronic voting for politican that tax them to death.. After the taxes get too oppressive  they leave abd go to Nevada, Colorado out west and in the east from Maryland to Virginia and vote for the same liberal morons in different suits to  ruin those states.

    1. BearNJ  
      No, they move down here to Florida to get away from paying ‘their fair share’ of the taxes they voted in for the rest of you to pay. 😉 😉

    1. TCW9127  
      There’s a hot place often spoken about in the Bible, that I could suggest. 😉 😉

  12. Please pardon my use of language. When I seen Maher complaining about his portion of tax he pays I didn’t really care about his idiosyncracy nearly as much as I do the millions I’m in line with who are needing a job. Seriously, though, a few months ago I went hunting for a news site and found TRS, and I never knew just how people felt until I started reading the posts. And, there are some very patriotic/educated folks here who refuse to be duped and have taught me a few things. To that note, I’m forever learning. And yeah, I do grip strength as a hobby so it would be keen to squeeze the one living brain cell the he// out of Maher’s head 🙂

      1. herbert_2  
        Welcome to the site and the growing number of people who have enough with the status quo, Maher and his American Idol President. As for Maher leaving the left behind, I’ll believe that when pigs (like Joy Behar and Nancy Pelosi), can fly.
        Maher did however make an interesting comment. Apparently, he’s beginning figure out that even though he’s been Obama’s ‘water boy’, it doesn’t mean that he’s going to get to drink the water. Obama’s ‘Bus’ is really a Monster Truck and there’s plenty of room under it for others just like him. Do ever expect to see him as a contributor on Fox News like Beckel Williams and Colmes? No, He’s not bright enough to ever try to earn an honest living.

  13. holy crap…HURRY!!! get to the commiefornia state line and prevent this jerk from leaving there .. and coming to your state…
    So, it turns out that Other People’s Money included yours too. Boo effing hoo. Now you get deal with this POS law you thought to stick the rest of us with. As for Obama keeping his word…well…let’s just say President Downgrade’s record on that is a bit spotty

    1. You have to understand how Liberals think. They think they are the annointed ‘elite’. In a royal sense, they believe that they should be able to dictate to the ‘masses’ every detail of how the ‘masses’ should live their lives, however, they believe that the very rules that they themselves dictate and support, should in no way be applied to them. You know, because they are so ‘enlightened’ and above it all. They believe their very existence to be a blessing to the world and therefore they should not be taxed at all. That is why most tax cheats and tax dodgers are Liberals and Democrats. They do not play by their own rules and do not feel that they should have to. 
      They are always ‘shocked’ when their own ignorance turns around and bites ‘them’ along with every one else.

  14. It’s a case of battered spouse syndrome.   He’ll curse big government now, but in a few days, it’ll be all lovey-lovey again.   Until Pig Face gets his next tax bill.

  15. Hilarious. 😀 Look at Madcow’s face when Maher says “the rich pay their fair share”.

    1. NewDixieNation Yep. All those years of spweing misinformation down the drain. I love how the audience also greets it with stunned silence.

  16. I’m pretty sure I scrapped Bill Maher off the bottom of my shoe after a day at the dog park.
    Bill… be happy. Instead of shipping your money overseas… just send yourself. It’ll be good for you. It’ll be good for America. Win-win!
    Or you can stay here and remain a complete idiot.

  17. You berated those who tried to tell you, Billy. And you vied for what and you have received. Wallow in your mire you God hating POS.

  18. Aw come on Billy, we need to stay there and show us how wonderful statism is. 
    Liberals, you just can’t trust them. They make fun of you for wanting freedom, and then, just when all of the crap they’ve been wanting comes to fruition, they want out. They leave people swimming in the pile of crap they made and then go crap in somebody elses pool.

    1. herbert_2 Exactly. We are supposed to be happy that he finally sees the light. Screw this lowlife.

  19. Nothing could better exemplify and solidify that when Pelosie and all these goofy Liberals and Hollywood hypocrites are screaming to ‘raise taxes’ and pay your ‘fair share’, they are talking about “you”, not “them”. People have always said, “If you want to pay more taxes, just do it and leave us alone. But, of course, that is not the point.
    They don’t want to pay more taxes. They want to force you to pay more taxes. Bill just spelled it out.

  20. Is it me, but it looks “it” has a little Adam’s apple.  “Can lose him”, well he needs to stay lost, ugh who wants the little creature.

  21. Hey Maher. You were instrumental in creating the tax situation you live under. Deal with it. 😉
    Looking for some viewers? Ratings getting low? 😉 😉

      1. warpmine tinlizzieowner 
        Yes, please. We sure don’t want him hanging around Southwest Florida. 😉

  22. Someone needs to check Maher in for a psychological exam and ensure he is deemed mentally ill and unable to EVER own a gun!  Did he not listen to his own rhetoric the last several years?  Oh I can’t wait until he receives the $63 new ObamaCare tax and the increases in his health insurance premiums…..

  23. Please stay where you are Maher.  We don’t want you moving to a red state and voting blue.

    1. Wiggy111  I was just about to say the same thing. We have that same problem here in Florida. All of the natives are Conservatives, but all the Yankees transplants fleeing higher taxes and rotten weather are about to turn our great state blue. Before long I’ll have to leave. It’s disgusting.

      1. Gtrjag Wiggy111 From one Gator fan to another.  My husband and I intend to fight every inch of the way against liberal transplants.

      2. Gtrjag Wiggy111 Not all Wiggy.  I can’t wait to get out of NE and the weather is the least of my issues.  Rest assured as soon as I can, I’m going to move where my vote will count.  Here in RI it has become so Liberal and Blue that going to the polls is an exercise in futility for me.  If I do go south, and end up in FL I will be a late voter in the Central Time Zone.

  24. Tis a sight to see how fast these liberals backtrack on their dogmatic rhetoric when the government actions they have been shoving down everyone else’s throats begin to affect them. Yet, they are so clueless as to not recognize that the causes for the higher taxes are the very programs that they have been touting.

  25. Boo hoo. Poor Billy. What? Is millionaire Billy feeling the harsh boot of authoritarianism on his little neckie weckie? But, but, but Billy…your money is being redistributed to help the poor and the downtrodden in your state. Your money is righting the wrongs of social injustice. Your money is helping to save the planet. This is what you and your fellow leftist authoritarians wanted, Billy.

    Ach!!! The leftist doth protest too much, methinks.

    1. But, but, butt Billy you gave Obama a million of your dollars for the income tax waiver, oops campaign contribution.  Didn’t he send CA your waiver?

      1. I hope you don’t mind OneThinDime, but I just had to tweet your response. It was gold!

  26. Liberals never want to give a number to what’s fair for income taxes, Maher finally put it on record. 70% is enough to get you to speak up, and the real number is 50% (to be mad about but not speak up).
    California has been destroyed and it’s very sad. But maybe someday.

  27. Hey Maher everything you get you deserve, you worthless liberal POS!   I hope Commiefornia busts your ass.  I am betond sick and tird and disgusted with  liberal idiots like Maher.

  28. What is it about liberals?  They are such nosy buddies, what does Maddow care how much “rich people” pay in taxes?  Rich is so arbirtary, it’s whatever some libs come up with?  First it was 250 now its 450 …. 
    Not only are they in your gas tank, frig, healthcare, … they are also in your checkbook.

  29. Does anybody actually listen to these buffoons like Madcow the he/she?Oh boo hoo Billy boy!You asked for it,you got it.Bwahahahaha!!!!

      1. Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen! Amen!
