Skip to comments.Bill O'Reilly: GOP Should 'Wise Up' and Raise Minimum Wage
Posted on 01/30/2014 9:10:32 AM PST by NKP_Vet
Fox News host Bill O'Reilly says the "pinheads" in the Republican Party should stop opposing the minimum wage.
"The Republican Party should really wise up and stop opposing raising the minimum wage. It should be 10 bucks an hour" to keep employers from exploiting workers, O'Reilly said Wednesday during his opening "Talking Points Memo" segment of his TV show.
O'Reilly said his proposed $10 an hour minimum wage would apply only to adults. Teenagers just beginning their careers should be paid on a lower scale, he said.

he’s such an ass....
I saw this last night. Wanted to vomit. BOR is about as knowledgeable on economics as the Pope. Surprisingly, it’s Bill Gates who seemed to get it right.
I stopped watching O’Reilly (not that I watched him much anyway) years ago and was totally right to do so.
BOR is a buffoon, a premadonna and a legend in his own mind.
From one pinhead to another this puke puddle has just pulled the pin on his career ending grenade
This guy is on the wrong network.
Trade the minimum wage increase with a 5 percent drop in corporate tax rates. Obama proposed corp cuts initially so it’s an issue they can win.
This ass never grew up. He is far left and tries to cover it up.
I watched Bill OReilly trying to bait his guest by spouting the usual MSNBC Socialist Logic.
Billy-O even did his trademark shout down the guest whenever the show needs more Liberal viewers shuffle and jive routine.
Billy Os rude treatment of guests has made his show the most popular TV show with Liberal views for over 10 years now.
It was such a convincing Liberal performance by Billy-O that he convinced me that there is truth to the rumor that Billy-O is leaving FOX to replace Mr. Ed, The Shouting Socialist, on MSNBC.
He and Chrissey Mathews could then nightly compete for the best Rude Irish Shout Downer.
Anybody on FR know of a single good reason to watch “The Billy-O TV Show” ever again?
O’Reilly should STFU
Bill O’Reilly is one of those people who always make me hit the mute button or change the channel whenever I see them on TV.
He is such a clueless jerk and always has been as far as I can tell.
I did wise up. I quit watching/listening to him years ago. His is merely a provocateur posing as an independent.
Who is this guy Bill O’Ryan guy? I’ve never heard of him. He sounds like a first-class ass.
Just finished reading “Killing Jesus”. What a joke!!!!! Fortunately I signed it out of the library. Unless you are a five yeal old child who doesn’t know who Jesus is. Not famaliar with who Mary and Joseph were. Don’t know who John the Baptist is, or Caiaphas, or King Herod, or Caesar or Pontius Pilate. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING NEW IN THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!! A complete waste of time.
O’Reilly is not conservative. He is a populist.
O’Reilly is dumber than a rock and not near as useful.
Ted Baxter is never at a loss for something amusing to say.
Michele Malkin refuses to go in his show after he belittled her a few years ago for standing with real conservatives.
BOR is expressing his feelings instead of his knowledge of economics.
How is a family supposed to survive on $20,800?
We need better jobs, not a political gesture.
He is there. The network is fully aware of him.
The network WANTS that message out.
The purpose of Fox is to push the viewpoints that nwo financial elites want conservatives to adhere to.
It’s the conservative half of agitprop.
Sometimes messages are pushed vigorously with urgency (typically when drumming up support for a war), other times it’s subtle and gradual (like when undermining Biblical morality, pushing gun control, statism, domestic espionage targeting American citizens, etc.).
Sometimes Ted Baxter opens up and exposes his stupidity to full public view.
Pretty much says it for me too.
He’s entertainment. Folks turn off their brains and watch in mesmerized silence.
If they gave the content any thought at all, they would switch channels and never come back during his hour.
I am still looking for one good reason to ever watch “The Billy-O TV Show” again.
Come on now, gimme your best shot!
It was a terrible book. Remember the part where he said it was impossible for Jesus to have said a word from the cross because of his injuries??????? In otherwords loudmouth BOR does not believe Jesus was God and does not believe the Bible.
Amen....those jobs are for teens, in between job workers, and the part time female who wants to work while children are in school. Those minimum wage jobs were never meant to be a career path. If they want more money, they should have stayed in school.
We thank God for the minimum wage job, as it gives teens a taste of the work ethic, and that life is hard...get prepared. Minimum Wages at $7.50 an hour at McDonalds, that’s about the cost of that meal, and at $15.00 an hour that will be the cost of that meal. If they keep pushing those jobs go to robots like in Europe....stupid logic isn’t it?
I understand the concept you’re addressing, and I pretty much agree. He does move folks in a certain direction, and I don’t particularly care for that direction.
Yes, Bill is right again.
In fact, it would be even better to raise minimum wage to $100/hour, right?
That way, everyone would have a ‘living wage’?
After all, government decrees alter reality and create value from thin air.
One annoying device BOR uses in the book, he keeps referring to Jesus as “the Nazarene”-—I go to church every week, and I never hear the priests do that.
This tells me BOR has no clue about the Constitutional limits on governmental powers.
Exactly WHERE does the Constitution grant the power to set the minimum wage, or gas mileage standards, or ban incandescent bulbs, or regulate coal-fired electric plants into the ground, among other outrages?
I have noticed that Megyn Kelly, who actually lets her interview subjects speak without interruption, is right behind O'Reilly in her viewer rating numbers.
I believe she will eventually pass him and be Fox's BIG drawing card.
If you notice, Fox has just enough conservatism to draw in conservative viewers.
Then it proceeds to constantly yet subtlely harp on turning towards socialism and new world order agendas.
Don’t forget, Rupert Murdoch is a member of the CFR just like every other “news media mogul”.
Or maybe $500 an hour - No more, no less.
If an employer has to pay $10 an hour to a person only worth $8 an hour then why should the manager or foreman earn $30 an hour? Just move to a true socialist economy and just give everone the same wage, no matter what they do or how good, or bad, an employee they are?
After all, that policy worked out so well for the USSR.
I have been screaming this forever, 10.00 an hour does NOTHING to
pull someone from poverty! After taxes it is approx. $280.00 a week in
take home! Are these AHOLES kidding me! Of course ALL business
payroll taxes increase which means MORE MONEY for the government
Chet Curtis a long time newscaster, here in Boston, died a few days ago. He was one of the good guys. O’Reilly came up to Boston for the funeral and Howie Carr mentioned it on his show. Someone called in an asked what O’Reilly was really like and Howie said that what you see on TV is exactly who he is. From that remark, I automatically assumed that Howie thinks he’s an arrogant jerk. I guess he wasn’t much liked when he was on TV here.
I agree to that. Fox is in some ways better. At the same time it may actually be subtly worse. People think they’re getting the Conservative message, but in fact are getting a lot of reinforcement for creeping socialism too.
The more the Left trashes Fox, the more effective this becomes.
Fox can’t be Leftist, because the Left hates it. In truth, I’ll bet the left laughs it’s ass off when people watch O’Reilly and think they’re getting gospel Conservatism.
He reminds me more and more of Ted Baxter.
The issues aren’t important to Bill; it’s the fact that he has an opinion on a subject that’s so important. He and Piers Morgan should co-host a show together. They deserve each other.
There is an “unwritten law” that YOU (any American citizen) are not permitted to operate a national-level news business.
Only if you ingratiate yourself with the financial elites will you be invited to join CFR (it’s invitation-only).
Then you will be permitted to operate on a national scale, since you will then have ceded final editing authority over to your NWO bosses.
They don’t mind if you print the local gossip/coupon sheet, of course, so, technically, at least, you can get in the news business.
Wasn’t Bill an English teacher at one point? That could explain why Math and basic Economics are completely beyond his scope of understanding...
Howie’s former sidekick VB said pretty much the same thing about what it was like to have BOR in the studio. At least BOR gave a couple blurb recommendations for a couple of Howie’s books.
End Bill O’Reilly’s career today.
The Fox News talk show host also agreed to drop his extortion suit against Andrea Mackris and her attorney, Benedict Morelli, according to a statement by O'Reilly's lawyer. The deal likely involves payment of millions of dollars to Mackris, since the two sides were discussing an offer of well over $2 million when negotiations broke down, say sources close to O'Reilly. Both parties agreed to keep the details confidential, according to the statement.
No thanks, I`ll do without the pizza. And the minimum wage trolls can do without those jobs.
I think the time has come to start thinking about Post American America, as we are only about one or two 2,000 page unread bills away from a one party country. Invest in security companies and gated compounds.
