O'Reilly is a populist nimrod numbskull.

And also, master of the obvious at times, such as with this piece.

There's no reason to delete anything Minion. I got no problem at all with the postings of O'Really's op-ed pieces. Feel free to post them all you want.

He is a numbskull who wants a new federal law for everything, all with 10 year prison sentences, thinks gobbel's warming is real, and is for higher taxes on "the rich." I could go on and on with this mollusk. Can't stand him but got no problem with anyone posting his stuff.

Here's the text of his op-ed linked in the OP:
Quote:
Readers of The New York Times must have been confused the other day when the paper ran an article entitled: "Under Strain, France Examines Its Safety Net."

Because The Times is ultra-liberal on its editorial page, pretty much advocating for every entitlement possible, the hard news story seemed somewhat out-of-place. It chronicled the enormous benefits that French citizens receive: paid child care, free higher education, free health care, a mandatory five paid weeks vacation, monthly government payments for each child, two years of government-paid unemployment insurance, generous pensions, the list is endless.

But there is huge trouble in the socialist paradise. Times reporter Alissa Rubin wrote this: "The spiraling costs of cradle-to-grave social welfare programs have all but exhausted the French government's ability to raise the taxes necessary to pay for all of it, creating growing political problems for President Francois Hollande, a Socialist ...

"Investors are shying away from the layers of government regulation and high taxes."

The French economy is stalled because employers must pay 48% of every workers salary to the government. That means for every $1,000 a hotel clerk receives in gross pay, another $480 bucks goes from the hotel to Paris. So fewer jobs are created and more French people are unemployed because employers get hammered when they hire anyone.

But that's okay for many over there. Ms. Rubin's article quotes an unemployed guy named Louis Paris: "You cannot take away guns from Americans, and in the same way you cannot take away social benefits from the French people. They won't stand for it."

There are 66 million people living in France, more than 320 million reside in the USA. Yet the Democratic Party and President Obama want to create a French-style nanny state here despite the evidence that France is falling apart economically. Does that make any sense?

And how can an ultra-liberal newspaper like the New York Times continue to advocate for a nanny state when it's hard news pages are full of stories about Greece, Italy, France and other countries in dire economic trouble because of entitlement debt?

The answer lies in crazy ideology. Some liberals (and conservatives on other matters) are so committed to their philosophy that they don't care about reality. As long as the program fits into their utopian vision they'll support it no matter what the consequences.

Here's backup for that statement. I submit that President Obama and all the democrat politicians that voted for Obamacare never even read the proposed law. Nancy Pelosi admitted it. So, now, when chaos reigns, they act surprised that things aren't working.

There comes a point when ideology has to be put aside and what's good for the country must be embraced. France is a selfish nation, that is going down the drain economically because the folks there want stuff and economics be damned.

The United States is not far behind.

With you then, he's a numbskull even if he's right. I got problems with some of his stands and his big headed bs, but most of the time I agree with him. I think he is a total numbskull on his anti legalization of pot stance, And I really knock him for that. But he's okay in my book. Same with beck, same with limbaugh, same with megan kelly.

He's just doing the job they pay him for, and he also does alot of good charity work - uses his economic power for good.

As [MENTION=32]trlrtrash13[/MENTION] once labelled him, he is a "intelligent liberal."

A oxymoron if ever I saw one.
