+Coachwhip No one under the age of 65 can possibly defend Bill O'Reilly or even get butthurt that someone makes fun of your ideaology. Not everyone agrees with you. And thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster for that!
Having a washer & dryer is smart business, but turds like O'Reilly don't have a clue. Many poor who have cellphones don't have POTS most likely their cell phone is a pre pay service. Many places don't allow outdoor antennas to to be able to receive free OTA TV. Not enough space to go further
poor people ride the bus and it has air conditioning, and the lunch room at work has a microwave, and that cell phone was free, it's the service you can't afford... i can't believe how spoiled poor people are, sometimes they watch t.v. after their three part time jobs. fricking loafers...
lol, bill o'reilly, "how'd the moon get there? how'd the sun get there? how'd it get there? can you explain that to me? how come we have that and mars doesn't?"
good for you jimbo ....exercising your rights as a lazy fat ass american -no researching facts for you -nahh not for jimbo no jimbo sits his fat ass on the couch and listens to the news media that tells exactly what he wants to hear ---congratulations jimbo!! you are a credit to your trailer park....
I am fairly certain that person is not "rich" by any means of the definition. The fact that there are any poor people elsewhere in the world is irrelevant.
This is America, the wealthiest country in the world. There should not be ANY poverty at all in this country. None period.
Bill and his ilk make me sick.
The company I work for is crawling with extreme conservatives. I have to hear this shit all day, everyday. I am the only liberal at the company, so of course I am uninformed and delusional. After watching this O'Reilly show clip, I'm certain that my conservative co-worker's political banter is a word for word recital of Fox News propaganda.
Poor person response:
Microwave - 1988 model given from parents
Air conditioning - Window cooler, came with apartment
TV#1 - 17" black and white, neighbor was throwing it away
TV#2 - 24" got it for bday 1997
Basic cable $16.99 per month
cell phone - prepaid, used for emergencies
Personal computer - Pentium2 with dial-up modem
The poor need to sell everything, spend that $30 on drugs, become insane, and live on the streets so they can be locked up in privately owned prisons for profit.
Wouldn't it be nice if we could sacrifice a worthless old guy like O'Reilly to bring back someone we who was good, maybe someone we loved. Who wouldn't trade in O'Reilly for their favorite grandparent. Hell, I'd sacrifice O'Reilly for one more conversation with my grandpa. It wouldn't have to be a government program, so conservatives could use it too.
Obviously there are plenty of "poor" people who are poor because of legitimate reasons...but there are poor families who I just can't feel sorry for. I'm personally "poor". Graduated university not too long ago and I can't find a real job in my field...but there are families where there are 3 generations of welfare/food stamp recipients living under the same housing project roof. What the fuck? Too many people are content living off the government tit (including rich people like the Bachmanns).
Jimmaaaaaay, vacation time is over buddy. So get your lazy ass back in to the studio and write something funny, Fans might love you, but I still hate ya, thx, Bill O'Reilly .... ps. I think you get under Micheal Shure's collar just a bit, that's my job to piss people off, but strangely I find it very amusing :) Why don't you call my show sometime, I promise the interview will be shorter than your youtube video's, hahahahahaha, bye fuqface, thx, Bill O'Reilly.
When you listen to FUX News, with their arrogant dismissal of human suffering, and denial of reality, there's some real comparisons to the absolute monarchy of France just prior the Revolution. "Hey, they got microwaves" is the "Let them eat cake" of our era.
I loathe Fox News, but.....What is the percentage of high school drop outs make at least 50K a year? A livable wage? And did their parents drop out as well? What about low IQ's? What does a person with a 100 IQ or less make on average? Compare to a 110 or 115 IQ. We will always have plenty of poverty. No one wants to hear that.
I think this shows just how OLD Bill O'reilly and other conservatives are... not only are those things they list really, REALLY cheap now days (basic ones anyway), but things like a mobile phone and a computer are pretty much essential to being able to function in the modern workforce.
Jimmy, you won me over here. The first two episodes were good, but this episode hit it out of the park. The O'Reilly impersonator was brilliant too. He got the cadence and accent nearly PERFECT. I'm thinking that may be a great recurring segment.
cont- So to conclude this Heritage Institute piece of disingenuous mind fuckery that doesn't count the homeless, people forced economically to live with family or friends, makes no distinction between ownership or uses of items, makes no distinction in the quality of items, was biased towards the wealthiest households in each zip code- lastly you can be middle-class 30 years get sick or injured and be deciding while watching you big TVs whether you want food or your utilities all on.
cont- ie a 13inch 30 year old TV counts as a TV the Same as a brand new LCD 54 inch TV. 5. The way the survey was done ( people going door to door and using average income by zip code) may be fine for an energy survey but is problematic at the very least to then use that information to say what the poor do or do not have, first bias which houses do the surveyors try (well kept ones that do not look dangerous) second bias who replies to the survey (people not ashamed of their conditions) cont
This information about what poor people have comes from an energy usage survey from the DOE, that had people go to houses and survey the households about energy usage- 1. It doesn't say what the poor people own merely what they have use of ie they may not own the refrigerator, washer, dryer, stove, dishwasher they have use of as renters 2. the survey doesn't count the homeless 3. doesn't count the poor taken in by family or friends 4. the age, quality, of the item was not noted - cont
So the next time you see someone poorer than thee, or someone so derelict.
Don't act like a dick, a pompous prick, or like your life's been wrecked.
Those are people, human beings there, they don't deserve your hate.
They deserve a meal, a second/third chance, not you acting all irate.
Bill O'Reilly, why not smiling? Got your mind on all the poor?
Oh O'Reilly, just stop piling your shit outside our doors.
It's not as simple as you say, druggies, dropouts and the deranged.
They're all just stuck having to pay the fucks who fixed the game.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
