Vanity Thread on BOR
me | 4/18/2013 | me

Posted on 04/18/2013 5:32:37 PM PDT by Rodamala

OK so a lot of Freepers are down on BOR... and I used to loathe BOR circa 2001... his talking points was particularly annoying to me. At some point, I began to Enjoy the show, particularly the mix of guests.


TOPICS: Chit/Chat
KEYWORDS: bor; elitistgasbag; loofahman; tedbaxter
...but he lost me tonight when he advocated federal background checks. I get it, he is a populist, and maybe I am in the minority that understands tyranny and how it works... there is a slippery slope of turning victimless crimes into felonies (and therefore the revocation of the right to vote). This is a going the wrong way. I disagree with BOR here... I hope he gets blasted for this.

Discuss.

We need to do away with background checks altogether. They’re pointless and expensive, not to mention just a happy face step on the road to tyranny.

Any criminal can go to the hood and grab a throw away for a couple hundred bucks with no questions asked.

If we want to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, lock them up and keep them locked up. The guy who ambushed NY state firemen on Christmas morning should never have been out of prison after beating his own grandmother to death with a hammer.

Any man too dangerous to own a gun is a man too dangerous to walk free.

Then there is the ever growing list of crimes which exclude people from gun ownership.

Discuss? What's to discuss? He's an arrogant, ignorant, draft-dodging imitation male with zero substance.

Tonight he is advising Obama to "register all guns and then make possession of an unregistered gun a felony".

I have no idea why Fox keeps the guy and I stopped watching his program this evening right after that little gem.

He isn't a conservative, he's an idiot.

No kidding here. I had taken a nap on my couch and had a bad dream. I awoke unable to move my left arm and thought I had had a stroke. When I became fully conscious I heard O’Reilly railing about the benefits of gun registration and background checks being “beneficial’ and “for the common good”, followed with a segment wherein he argued his point with Bob Beckel! I could hardly believe my ears were hearing what they in fact were hearing! O’Reilly can go to H3ll!

Did I wake up in an alternate universe? Am I now living in Bizarro World?

BOR called FR a hate site because of one post that if I remember right he had to take out of context to get even partially as bad as some of the crap said over at the DailyKOS.

Haven’t watched his show or listened to him on the radio since.

BOR is a populist. He is not grounded in any principle other than spewing his diatribes that align with the latest polls. He reads that Americans want background checks and he goes along with it for ratings.

He's no scholar of the 2a and he suffers from living in or too close to a big city. That is garuanteed to cloud one's judgement.

He would never fit in with me and my redneck friends.

Little does he know that it’s a liability.

Yes, I actually went for a very long time not watching TV, since I don’t own one anymore... but when on the road for business I watch Fox to try and see what the sheeple are being fed...

I do enjoy Miller Time as well.

Back in the day, I used to describe my opinion of BOR as “Even the 85% of the time I agree with the man, I can’t stand him.”

My rate of agreement with his views has dropped to something like 60% (through BOR changing, rather than any shift in my own views), I still can’t stand the man — self-promoting, self-possessed bore, even when one agrees with his point — and now find when I don’t agree with him, he comes across as not just wrong, but a complete fool.

Still, he’s to the right of most of what’s on television by way of commentary, so there’s a little to be said in his favor.

Bill O'Reilly lost me when he hosted Inside Edition.

My belief is that he is all about himself and spouts conservative ideas in order to generate income for himself.

He is a lazy thinker at best. His interviews are basically one-sided attempts at one-upmanship.

If you happened to agree with him on an issue or two it's only because he's putting on a good act.

He’s not MSNBC....

No, I visit here every day... I just generally skip the commentary on O’Reilly... much like right now I skip every horror piece about Dr. Mengele in Philly... it just doesn’t appeal to me.

I was just writing in a FRemail that I think something is really going on and Bill needs a hug... I mean he BLEW UP at Alan Combs a while back really bad... then there was some dumb bible thumping issue that he was going off about and that poor chick that sits in the leg chair on The Five took the brunt of his rage issues... I mean he was just plain rude to her.

Now there is this thing where he is promoting background checks?

It’s a slow process... but I guess I take him with a grain of salt... I hope others do too.
