    Perhaps, but it does so with a particularly slanted knife.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    I re-watched the video and the only thing I question is Bill's opinion that Trump will declare a state of emergency to get his wall built. Other than that - he made some valid and succinct points and observations.

    I accept that everyone sees things through their own lens.

    And FTR....I'm not a Bill O'Reilly fan per se......I agree with some of it and disagree with some also. But as I said....he does cut through the rhetoric and lays it out, which I appreciate.

    As always....YMMV.......

    I listened to part of it and I'm wasting no more time. It's the standard stuff he always spewed on Fox. "Babies born to be executed?" Yeah, that's fair and balanced...

    succinct, but not valid.

    just a reminder. bill o'reilly's duplicity led in part to dr. tiller's assassination. but hey, he gives a different perspective on matters. ymmv.

    I'll be 65 in June - so for me that would be about 6 decades. I guess 'several' could be as many as 6.

    No matter though - because we have plenty of archived records of what's in our country's past, even if one was not around in person to witness it firsthand.

    Whether it's talk forums or our political system - it's been the same old same old for as many decades as I can remember. You can argue that this presidency is different and that's a fair point.

    But everything surrounding it is what we've come to expect, including those who are distressed and those who aren't and all those in between.

    When has that never been the case in 'your' lifetime?

    The other point I made that really and truly is one that should (IMHO) be of more concern is all the people making money off the political system. For me, that is the root of all evil.

    But that fox........he's guarding the hen house!

    Right. Well, he was questioning the term she used "reproductive justice" when he said that. His point was not attacking the legislation, per se. Just a critique of Ms. Abrams' speech. If you really want to get down to brass tacks on his commentary.

    And to be fair - I never said "fair and balanced". Nor is it mentioned anywhere in the video.

    There will always be *some* rhetoric with just about any political commentator - that's how they get ratings.

    I've never heard anything from him but sloganizing. That's what he was/is paid for. After halfway, I remembered why I never listened to him. "Independent" certainly doesn't describe a shill like him...

    bazza, you voted for and continue to support the epitome of what you consider the “root of all evil” and keep trying to pretend what is going on now is no different than what’s always been. the current amount of brazen corruption surpasses by orders of magnitude nixon. you have to go back to the gilded age to find anything comparable.
