Bill O'Reilly is an ass and a half.

Was it really necessary for him to tell Joy to shut up so she can "learn" from him? She should've slapped his ass into next week as soon as he said that.

As for the mosque debate, I see both sides of the coin and I completely understand why many people would be sore about a mosque being built, but the way Mr. O'Reilly expressed his opinion was very, very tacky, IMO.

"It's inappropriate to build a mosque because the Muslims killed us on 9/11."

There's a difference between Muslims and extremist Muslims. He knows that, of course, but he played dumb on The View because he wanted to get a rise out of the women, stir up controversy and sell more books. He knew full well what he was implying. He's like a male version of Ann Coulter. Ignorant and vitriolic to the core. The more you debate with him, the more he loves it. Pissing people off is his specialty. He was happier than a pig in sh!t when Whoopi and Joy stormed off because he knew it would get his name back in the papers and it would spike his book sales.

Anyway... point being, there's no rationalizing with him because he's not a logical man.

Back to the mosque debate...

For him to go on national television and throw all Muslims in the same pot by saying "a mosque shouldn't be built because Muslims killed us" (even though innocent Muslims were ALSO killed that day -- Christians weren't the only victims, so get off the] cross, Mr. O'Reilly) is like saying a church shouldn't be built in Guyana because Jim Jones was a Christian and followers of Christ killed people there. To play devil's advocate, I ask... if there are people in Guyana who want a church, why should they be denied one? Because of Jim f-ing Jones? And why should "Christians" in general be blamed for the actions of one deranged nutjob? Aside from the fact that most religions do breed extremist lunatics who use religious texts to justify their their hate/prejudice/homicide, there is no one religion that's "worse" than the others, IMO, and it's irresponsible to blame "Muslims" and "Christians" in general for the reckless actions of a select few extremists.

They enable Bill O'Reilly when they have him on the show. They get to look like they give a damn, when generally they just get paychecks for saying stupid things or defending their celebrity friends. Then O'Reilly gets even more publicity and book sales. They all win.

Don't think so: I'm sick and tired of so-called show hosts walking off teh set as soon as something doesn't go their way.

Newsflash people: invite people you want or are able to talk with or don't do it. It's as simple as it is.

If you invite so., you give him the audience - but know that from scratch. It all comes down that every wannabe celebrity is having his gab feast these days without any journalist background. Hence he/she cannot backfire if they got some uncomfortable guest. It's actually pretty pathetic.

Yeah, I'm not applauding their walking off and I'm glad Barbara had the balls to call them on it instead of saving her balls for when nobody's looking like the little Miss Damage Control that she is. :rolleyes: BUT I would have had a lot more respect for Barbara if she checked Bill instead of sitting there silent when he insulted Joy and I would have cheered on Joy if she didn't go the lame bunny ear route but turned her body to face him and said, "Whoa whoa, you wait a minute... who the [[email protected]#$%^&*] do you think you're talking to?? You came on OUR show, don't sit up here thinking you can insult my intelignce in *our home* and that [[email protected]#$%^&*] is just gonna fly. You come at me correct or we can end this interview right now, Barbara be damned."

    • A few years ago, there was a certain number of the banking and business sectors that tried to promote the idea of a “cashless” society and at first, I was willing to hear them out but upon hearing more information, I decided that it would eventually become another facet of a divide along socioeconomic lines, with the ‘haves’ benefiting and the ‘have nots’ being at a marked disadvantage. We’re already getting a taste of the repercussions of this with some establishments that have tried to deny cash payments, for example an upscale fast-casual eatery called Sweetgreen (very popular here in the Northeast U.S.) which was forced to reverse their anti-cash policy after a severe backlash once the policy became public. Well, they do say that necessity is the mother of invention and necessity, and I guess necessity can also provide the incentive to transform and refigure.
    • I love that office set and I wish we could see more of it. I forgot the verbal exchange between Lady Whistle Tits and Colin. What was the outcome? Why was she crying? Did Colin clock her over the head and stick a mini LGBTQ flag in the middle layer of her eardrum?
    • Well, we all knew this was going to happen with Sloan/Eric/Nicole/EJ. But I like this storyline. I just wish they would slow it down. You don’t rush through a storyline when it’s good, you play it for all its worth. I hope we get another twist somewhere down the line. Plus, there’s too many Dimeras on the canvas as it is. And not enough Bradys.  Speaking of Dimeras, what was this Dimitri/Kristen marriage [!@#$%^&*]??  Thank God it seems like it’ll be over and done with after just this one episode. And judging by the way those scenes ended, I hope this doesn’t mean that Peter Porte lied in the Michael Fairman interview. Plus, I see they’re screwing up the timeline again, since 39 years ago, Megan was in Salem, completely alive and devoted to Bo.  Other than that, I would much rather have seen Chloe’s first day at the Spectator rather than just hearing about it. And I would much rather have heard about Leo crying about Colin rather than seeing it. They really need to sort out their priorities on this show. 
    •   RHOA has lost the humor that took it to the top of the RH franchises. The ones who understood comedy either got grumpy (Nene), fired (Phaedra) or left of their own accord (Porsha). Kenya and Kandi are not natural comedians. Sheree's comedy was her obliviousness. The shade is now about jabbing each other, not having a belly laugh. Editing is trying to fill the humor gap but failing. There is also no cohesion: everyone comes across as a work hire. I've been waiting for my streaming service to upload last week's AND yesterday's episode. It claims there is a 'technical issue' but has no problem uploading RHONJ, VPR and other Bravo content. I don't know what's going on, but it happened with last season's RHOA, too. It's symbolic of the way Bravo has checked out of this franchise. They need to bring back Nene, Porsha, Phaedra, Cynthia, even KZB (though I really don't like her). Just throw everything at this show, and if Kandi or Kenya are unhappy about those returns, welp...

    • 100%. Companies want to block any criticism or duck accountability with regards to delivering a service. They sent two young kids to deal with hundreds of passengers, and they just repeated the mantra "Please go onto the website and rebook your journey." Not one executive or decision-maker was visible. To compound matters, I ended up catching Covid from the melée of passengers at the station, lol. This is what I mean about being let down by tech. A more personalized, human(e) service would have been more efficient in this situation. Within an hour, most passengers could have been quickly rebooked on trains that very day. But Eurostar just wants the algorithm deal with everything, and save some $$ and avoid either training humans or having to deal with human customers. Another example: the closure of physical retail bank spaces in the UK. They want everyone to do banking 'on the app.' This is isolating a sizeable portion of older or immigrant residents who prefer dealing in cash and checks and don't know how to use computers or fancy smartphones. How to take out cash or deposit checks? Where do you go when you notice fraud in your account or on your credit card? Sit on a phone for half-an-hour and go through the motions dictated by automated voicecall? Biden also recognises the alliance aspect of shared values under threat. But I will say that the Inflation Reduction Act was not well received in the EU -- it was seen as a competitive strike to attract European green business across the Atlantic to the US. Now the EU is trying to formulate meaningful green subsidies and incentives of its own. Fear of an invasion of Taiwan is also governing this decision. Will the US back the Pacific alliance of Taiwan, Japan and South Korea? Guess that depends on who is in the WH.
