    Billdo the Clown really needs to stick to just tooting an actual horn, not opening his fucking pie hole. There are 32 million reasons why he should never be heard from again.

    Bill O’Reilly and Jerry Falwell sr and jr.
    Three of the most useless human beings to ever disgrace the planet with their exhaust. (It is not all that small of a group) Some days one does have to wish that there was a hell, so it would be possible that these asswipes would have to pay for the lives they trashed and the bullshit they spread.

    Falwell, SH Sanders, Conway, Trump, Hunter, Kushner, Nunes, Palin, Stephen Miller… That’s a ten-second listing of horrible Republicans.

    Rather than be embarrassed by such people, Republican voters worship them.

    Actually Jerry jr, replacement asswipe, I have owned a business, 2 in fact, and organized a large number of people into an ongoing project. I’ve run a vital work group to operate and maintain, yes it was a warship, but it required actual ability to operate, troubleshoot and repair a lot of technical equipment, and assign duties for a number of people working under me and to interact with higher level supervisory personal. So yeah, I’m a no body. I’m still far and away a better human being than you ever have been or will be. And I’m nothing special. Millions of people do this and more. What have you ever done for your fellow human beings? Besides fuck them in so many ways……..

    @West of the Rockies:
    Well at least those republican voters recognize those who best endeavor to be the people that they think they should be, fucking assholes. Gotta give them some credit to recognize who they are and who best represents what they think humans should be like.

    Tragic

    (Daily Beast tonight) According to a New York Times report, the NRA has shut down operations at the controversial internet video network amid a bitter legal battle with Ackerman McQueen, the ad firm responsible for the programming. The powerful gun rights group is also said to have cut all business ties with Ackerman … .

    “Ackerman McQueen is not surprised that the NRA is unwilling to honor its agreement to end our contract and our long-standing relationship in an orderly and amicable manner, as Ackerman McQueen proposed because we believed it was in the best interest of the members of the NRA,” firm spokesman Bill Powers said in a statement.

    “When given the opportunity to do the right thing, the NRA once again has taken action that we believe is intended to harm our company even at the expense of the NRA itself. For Ackerman McQueen, it is time to move on to a new chapter without the chaos that has enveloped the NRA. Ackerman McQueen will continue to fight against the NRA’s repeated violations of its agreement with our company with every legal remedy available to us, but we will always be proud of the work that we completed during our 38-year relationship on behalf of the individual citizens that are the NRA.”

    The channel aired new programming as recently as June 25, but the two entities have been publicly brawling for months. In April, the NRA sued the ad firm, demanding information about its billing practices. The gun group also insinuated that Oliver North, then its president, was engaged in troubling and secretive financial behavior with Ackerman McQueen. The gun group later sued the firm for tens of millions of dollars. Ackerman McQueen has pushed back, counter-suing the NRA and also demanding a massive sum. And the firm announced last month that it had become impossible to uphold its end of the contract.

    Caught in the middle were the employees of NRATV, who have wondered for weeks about their job security.

    They still have god and country and whatever nra-recommended accessories they bought on credit.

    I like how Bill O’Reilly apparently fetishizes the Founding Fathers to the point to where the stated fact that they and most people saw women as baby factories and people of color as murderous savages or living farm equipment is a shocking thing.

    Like… duh? That’s why we had abolition/civil rights and women’s suffrage/rights movements almost immediately after the country was formally founded

    It reinforces the radical belief that the United States was founded by racist white men who installed a system whereby white guys would run everything and blacks, women and others would be exploited.

    Radical?

    Bill, you daffy drugged-up teen-chaser you, that’s not how you spell Conservative.

    You’d have thought that Yesterday’s Man might have more of a yen for history, but to paraphrase his wife, you would be sadly disappointed if you expect more than you see.

    Response: “Have you ever had to make payroll?!”

    Do you see any meaningful connection here? Because I sure as hell don’t. That’s some bunker-busting topic-shifting right there. It doesn’t make any sense.

    On so many levels! As one person responded to him on Twitter, Jesus said you cannot serve both God and Mammon, and there he is, preaching the values of Mammon, and citing his success in the world of Mammon as the source of his authority.

    He’s all but admitting the obvious – that the whole God thing was just his grift.

    Matt McIrvin says:

    I’ve heard this “they’ve never had to make payroll” before– it’s a standard conservative hiccup. Stay in the right-wing bubble long enough and you believe this is a generally held idea, that everyone takes it for granted that business entrepreneurs are the only people with valid opinions on any subject.

    I’d think the obvious response to the “Have you ever built an organization” tweet would be “Have you ever read the Bible? Because God makes it very clear what you must do to gain the kingdom of heaven, and it has nothing to do with building organizations or making payroll.”

    @Matt McIrvin:

    Yup, heard it tons of times. It’s particularly jarring here – a total non-sequitur. Typically it’s at least used as a rejoinder to some kind of economic/taxation argument.

    Ruckus says:

    @Jesse:

    It doesn’t make any sense.

    It does to conservatives. Especially the ones who own big business and run them from upon high. Like drumpf thinks he does. They think they know what they are doing because they live in big houses decorated with gold spray painted crap that they paid way too much for because their taste is sharing room in their asses with their heads. They think they run everything but if their help walked away, the entire thing would collapse in a short time.

    Embir says:

    Making payroll does earn credibility for running a business. So if your business is running a baby prison and your supply chain is the border patrol breaking families apart to provide you a steady supply of traumatized children and you make payroll by withholding medical care, beds, and toothbrushes – then yeah you can offer an opinion on running that business (but not on the morality of it). So maybe Rev Falwell the Lesser has more authority on on running that kind of business because his is similar. Since the original post was about morality not economics he can STFU.
