    crime is at an all time low? no shit. a huge chunk of the population (aka babyboomers) who used to commit all the crimes are now in nursing homes. dont look at the number of crimes committed but rather the ratio between # people who commit crimes and # of people in the age bracket most likely to commit a crime. id be ready to bet thats much higher than it was.

    What are you trying to communicate with this comment?

  • The God Damn Duncan

    Freakonomics (the first book) makes a pretty compelling argument that the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that paved the way to allow abortions across the US is the main reason crime went down significantly when those kids that would have been born to dysfunctional/poverty-ridden homes would have been around 17-19 or so

    Even if it's correlation and not causation, it's still an interesting read


    definitely feeling his call for rich liberals to takeover

    Bill Maher has really good interns

  • Miguel Cunha

    He talks art like it was something new since 1980. Much love for Jay!

    he's making a point that they didn't put "hip-hop artist" like they would've done for everybody else.

    I don't get this reference to Jay-Z being in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Jay-Z is not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame . . . unless he bought a ticket or something.

  • Com_Truise

    He didn't say he is already in the RnR Hall of Fame but will be in 7 years.


    bruh I feel like these Republican and Democrat motherfuckers spend more time criticizing each other, causing division, and spewing out there close minded ideology rather than coming up with constructive solutions. American politics is some fucked up shit

    How about working together for once? USA is so occupied with their Rep vs. Dem feud that no one has time left for solving real issues and helping those in need and all those other things a gov should do.
