  • Mark2

    I just sent him that very same list up above to show him what I think of his show, lol

  • AppleStinx

    @Bobbyv

    I’m thinking that Mark2 works for O’Reilly. It’s like here in California when you’re least thinking about smokes, there comes the governmnent (which collects taxes on cigarette sales) reminding you in a commercial how really really really bad smoking is for your health.

  • Bobbyv

    I think Billo is used to people not liking him, I think he feeds off of it.

  • RedBarSoup

    @BobbyV

    Ya think? THAT’S why he comes up with complete lies. He MEANS to, there’s no doubt about it. He MEANS to 100% completely lie to his followers so he can be talked about the next day. Why else would he be so “confused” about psys song? Who in their right mind DIDN’T know he was singing in a different language?

  • Bobbyv

    Redbar,

    Or maybe he was, dare I say it, joking? Then it is ok because it is satire.

    Ok, that was just me joking. To be honest I cannot comment in the Psy story because I did not see the segment. The only thing I will say is the same thing I have always said: If he is lying he should be called on it. But that is one thing I like about him, he usually has someone on who will call him on it or at least disagree. Definitely not always but more than some others.

  • RedBarSoup

    . But that is one thing I like about him, he usually has someone on who will call him on it or at least disagree. Definitely not always but more than some others.

    Nope, he had a guy on his show that was a “dr” agreeing with everything he said.

  • Hillbilly

    Some act like FNC “invented” the non news shows on a cable news channel. CNN started the whole deal. FNC just got better at it & it helped to make them number 1. I have a feeling that’s what’s got some folk’s panties in a bunch.

    What I have to say to those saying Colbert & Stewart are the same as cable news shows. :grin:

    Cable news opinion shows are having a discussion on the events of the day. Comedy Central shows are making fun of cable news shows…see the difference?

  • Hillbilly

    RedBarSoup – Nope, he had a guy on his show that was a “dr” agreeing with everything he said.

    ————————————

    I didn’t see the show. I just watched the youtube clip you posted twice. Bill O said he don’t know why it’s such a huge hit & he see’s nothing wrong with it. So why are you so upset with Bill O?

  • Bobbyv

    Redbar,

    If you watch him you know he will debate others like Juan W., atheists, Code Pink, etc. Even people like Bernard G will call him out. You can say a lot of things about him but you cannot say he does not have opposing points of view on his show. BBL

  • Ratboy

    Gooooood Morning!!
    there are some flurries in theair today but I dont think it is supposed to accumulate!

  • Letmethink

    Morning Ratboy,

    OOOOOOOO I think that might be COLD if I did that!! :shock: :lol: 37 degrees and real big flakes an a lot of them coming down now but for the moment they are not sticking!

  • Letmethink

    @Ratboy OOOOOOOO I think that might be COLD if I did that!! lol–I meant the driving and getting around stuff. When we get a real snow here–everything shuts down.

    Nothing sticking here as it has been really warm here. Sun is out now so looking good.

  • RedBarSoup

    @HillBilly

    Really? You don’t comprehend anything I’ve said……? I’ve said…oh, only like 50 times now that it’s Oreilly thinking Psys song didn’t have any words he could understand and that the song “has no words” because Oreilly couldn’t hear/understand any….what he failed to realize was that IT’S A DIFFERENT LANGUAGE. That’s the type of in depth researching you should expect from Oreilly. lol

    I want to thank you for taking one for the team!!!!! I will try to return the favor next summer when you get too hot I will be more than happy to take all the warmth and sun instead of you! :lol:

  • 1966

    @ratboy
    don’t worry the cold air is coming your way!!!

  • Letmethink

    @1966 we got 1 foot of snow you lucked out now were getting the cold only 13 foe a high today.
    13 degrees—YIKES–we were in northern Montana one summer and visited a plant nursery. They had plants marked as hardy to -32 degrees—I knew right then I was not tough enough to live up north–

  • 1966

    @let me think
    -32 is a normal winters night in international falls mn.
    @ratboy
    we have another storm coming this weekend hopefully you will get it to.
