SOMEBODY WHO HAVE FOUND MYSELF IN A LIBERAL CAMP A LOT OF THE

THESE DAYS I’M GOING TO HEAR ABOUT ONE AND GO, “IF I DON’T

  1. I’m from Houston. and know one really has a accent. I mean “y’all” instead of “you all” But it’s not like “yee haw” cowboy. Texas accent it’s really plan and boring.

  2. I adore celebrities who place themselves in a central political position. People who are willing to hear both sides of an issue and make an informed stance. If only everyone would do that.

  3. jim parsons just called science bullshit. He makes money by portraiting a genius in the feild of physics but totally disrespects everyone whos dedicated their time to the same feild in order to help develop a better world.

  4. kudos to jim for listening to both sides and thinking for himself. too often people who believe themselves to be intellectually adept of one end of the political spectrum when they don't even understand the scope or core of the other.

  5. seeing both sides is exactly what EVERYONE should be doing. i mean, don't be so blind! putting on the blinders and being unable to see past the end of your nose is the PROBLEM with this world
    JIM – you need to listen to Mark Levin if you want to learn anything about our Constitution & Bill of Rights, to know the "Why" behind a lot of constitutional conservative's POV's

  6. Jim Parson, just listen to NPR /89.3 in Los Angeles. they bend over backwards telling youboth sides of a story

  7. As another man from Texas, I could not be prouder that there is at least SOMEONE I can be proud of. Fantastic actor and just seems like a great human being. Keep up all the great work Jim. Thank you for representing the lone star state with such pride and dignity. We don't have enough of good people like you!

  8. There was a questionnaire in Canada before one of our elections that showed you how much of each platform you agreed with. I was 28% conservative

  9. Trying to learn politics by watching the news shows how stupid this country is… Study history ffs. Wars. Philosophers. Alliances and regime change. Etc

  10. That's how to do it, absorb the information, get to the root of the issues, find out the truth, whether it is a conservative or liberal viewpoint and then decide from there. If you just go by 'well this is conservative/liberal so that's what I believe' then you aren't thinking for yourself and that's a huge problem in this country, especially with the media dictating what most people believe. THINK FOR YOURSELF!

  11. It's nice to see someone who tries to listen to both sides. Even if you don't agree with someone it's always a good idea to try to at least understand where they're coming from.

  12. Watching both conservative and liberal media just makes me realize that both parties are essentially the same. Politics now is just a bunch of finger pointing.

  13. Damn it! I wanted to see the puppies lol
    More seriously, you should always try to learn about both sides. It's the only way to come to a logical conclusion and to make a logical argument in debate.

  14. Big props to Jim for being willing to listen to and consider both sides. You find many in Hollywood willing to even touch conservative content.

  15. Big Bang for intelligent people is Princess Jellyfish. A Japanese version but the characters actually have different hobbies instead of all of them liking the same movies and comic books. And they are nerdy women.

  16. I'm what most would call a nerd, grown up of course, and Big Bang Theory imho is a turd of a show. Their jokes aren't that funny… Compare it to original Simpsons or Seinfeld: its not even close to being as good as them. They make a star wars reference and everyone cries laughing and loves it. I say those who love it are simple and wouldn't know good comedy if BIll Burr shoved it up their asses. Screw this youtube star.

  17. I admire his desire to find truth inspite of all the media emotionalism and games “stations” play instead of reporting facts.

  18. This is why they are working with baby parts for embryonic stem cell experiments to give the rich elitists of the world a possibility for eternal youth & life. Watch and see. I think most of us listen to various people's viewpoints on things. If you don't you are getting one side of stuff or propaganda. Everyone spins things differently.

  19. The liberal just playing blind. They act like there is no radicalism in this world. Do you think you can get away with all your ignorant? How blood of millions of innocent people in this world already spill. And they just simply don’t care, and yet they think they are the good guy.

  20. Do you like puppies?

    No Stephen, I only like drowning bags on them in the river on weekends…

    What a stupid question…

  21. They bleeped The Daily Show I believe. Must not have permission to say the title on CBS. Its silly how things are like that.

  22. Look Jim every time you burst the bubble that you're not a genius (I know you are not but I don't wanna hear it)..Please please pretend to be one.

  23. I venture to Fox news briefly for the same reason, but just get too irritated by the presentation. Npr for me. No bias

  24. did Stephen just diss him with the puppy at the end? seems like he does things like that when he doesn't agree, keeping a weapon arsenal of ridicule under the table
