I thought I was buying the current episodes (season 19) but I'm getting old shows. Can't get in touch w/google to be refunded. Don't care for Google's system to contact them when there are problems. If they're a monopoly, that's still illegal.

Bill has invitees from varied arenas. He holds no punches. Let's us know we can do something but we have to greet up and get involved about those who are making decisions for Americans that do no benefit Americans. All of us can make a change in how the government makes decisions that effect our lives only. This is supposed to be a government for the people by the people. Remember they work for US. WE PAY THEIR SALARIES FROM OUR TAXES.

Bill, keep telling it like it is. People don't like you for that reason, but yet they continue to watch you. I would guess a majority of those critical of your show are closet atheists and closet Democrats/Liberals. Much respect and admiration for you! Only complaint, please talk about being non religious more. Share your views about religion and it's sheeples. Connect the dots for how religion plays out in politics for peeps new to your show. ✌
