Then again some people have absolutely no idea what to do with freedom and liberty, are so afraid of the so very simpllistic responsibility it entails, that they can't wait to hand it over to tyrants so they can be controlled like domesticated farm animals and not have to form opinions, ideas and indeed so they don't have to think for themselves.....

It was clearly a political statement and disrespectful to President Bush and the Office of the President. Turn this around. What do you think the response would have been if it was a likeness of President Obama. You would have marches on the HBO corporate offices. I have decided to cancel my subscription to HBO. If you need any other rationale for doing so simply watch a few episodes of the Bill Maher show. I think you will agree that he demonstrates hate toward any member of the Republican party or any idea emanating from a member of the Republican party and I am tired of his vitriol. He is the Rush Limbaugh of the Left. I don't listen to Rush because he is also full of hate. I can't do much about Rush being on the air except perhaps to let his sponsors know the way I feel. I don't subsidize Rush directly through payment but I do subsidize Maher, the producers of Game of Thrones, and the people of HBO who support this behavior. I urge any responsible person (Democrat or Republican or otherwise) who pays for HBO to discontinue your subscription until the HBO leadership demonstrates more responsible behavior.

Liberal Democrats "preach" tolerance yet they are the most intolerant when it comes to beliefs/values that differ from there own.
