    Who would have thought that a little HBO show could bring national attention and pressure on the IRS to an issue that has been going on unchecked for all these decades?

    p.s. had a hard time deciding on the prefix, not sure which one was appropriate-news,entertainment or politics

    And Howard Stern pressed Jon Stewart if he had a piece of the show or of John Oliver.

    yeah, the reason I decided to go with news was because it showed up as the top trending news item on my FB page. Also, the fact that the IRS might actually do anything at all about these assholes is great news to me. :jj:

    They tried. They got overruled in court. I saw it in that documentary "Going Clear". Maybe this will help revive that issue as well. One can only hope.

    It sucks that he's not replacing Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. I think he's great.
    Too bad he's only on once a week.

    I like him and last week tonight. My only problem is that they're essentially a democrat hit organization. That's largely because they're part of HBO, but if they attacked everyone, then it truly would be masterful.

    These people have been getting away with this for decades. You can't stop the Rubes from sending them money, but at least tax the Carnies and their ill-gotten gains.

    You should call the phone number he had up for his Church of Perpetual whatever. The recording is pretty funny.

    What scam. And the people that fall for it. I don't know if I should feel sorry for them and their stupidity or not. But I hate that these "religious" shows scam everyone and get away with it. Although the actual churches still do it with their little baskets for "donations".

    I guess they do need money for legal fees for all the kid touchers.

    His rant on televangelists was entertaining, intellectual and real. It was the religion that was pseudo. I like him.
