Bill O’Reilly is a Puritanical Busybody

So What If It Is Just a Ruse?

I saw a clip of the insufferable blowhard Bill O’Reilly saying that the whole medical marijuana thing was just a ruse. Supporters of medical marijuana really want full legalization so they can legally get high. But so what if it is just a ruse? Marijuana and all drugs should be just as legal as beer and bananas. If the legalization of medical marijuana must come first before complete drug freedom is restored then so be it. Who cares if it is just a ruse? Who cares if people just want to get high? O’Reilly cares. But he cares because he is puritanical busybody.
This reminds me of the H.L. Mencken line in A Mencken Chrestomathy
Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy.

  1. Screw O'Reilly and every other conservative statist who bitch about Obama's statism while supporting statism themselves. Hypocritical scum

  2. In past few weeks, we have Gareth Porter’s new book demonstrating that Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program. As Seymour Hersh has reported, it was the Turks who launched the poison gas attack in Syria in order to blame it on Assad. And in the Ukraine, it was the US which sponsored the violent overthrow of the elected Ukrainian government. Facts do not matter to the lying and vile Bill O’Reilly. He stated all of these monstrous lies in a 3 minute period last week in his opening monologue:

    "Over the years, Mr. Obama has been confronted with evil. The Mullahs in Iran, for example, trying to develop a nuclear weapon. If they do so, the world will be in grave danger because (inaudible) jihadists would certainly use nukes if they could. In 2010 President Obama warned Iran.


    OBAMA: Now as Iran's leaders continue to ignore their obligations there should be no doubt they too will face growing consequences. That is a promise.


    O'REILLY: To his credit, the President led sanctions against Iran but to his discredit, he pulled the sanctions too early. And now nobody knows what will happen with Iran's nukes.
    In Syria, the tyrant Assad killed innocent civilians by gassing them.


    OBAMA: I want to make it absolutely clear to Assad and those under his command the world is watching. The use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. And if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons, there will be consequences and you will be held accountable.


    O'REILLY: Again Assad did use the weapons but there were no consequences. And he has not been held accountable. That's weakness.
    Finally, Putin's aggression in Ukraine.


    OBAMA: What I have said consistently is that each time Russia takes these kinds of steps that are designed to destabilize Ukraine and violate their sovereignty that there are going to be consequences.


    O'REILLY: But again, there have been few consequences for Putin and the situation could erupt into war at any time.

    The truth is that at this point in history, President Obama is powerless, powerless to stop evil aggression. It's not his fault alone. His party, the Democrats, want no part of confrontation and some Republicans are isolationists as well. Generally speaking, there is no will in America to fight evil unless we're directly attacked. The result is danger and a weakening of presidential power.

    Mr. Obama is seen around the world as a man who will accommodate not right and wrongs. Therefore the power of America has declined. We cannot stop aggression, our allies are not confident we will help them if they get into trouble.

    The situation we have now is almost exactly the same as what President Jimmy Carter experienced in the late 1970s. The question is will the next president be able to restore American power as Ronald Reagan did?"

    And that's "The Memo"

  3. There is only one word this, and thats slavery.

    They own you. Your their "nigga." Your body is theirs, they own it, like a dog. And they can damn well tell their dog what its going to eat, drink, smoke, or who it can mate with, you got that?

    How can any self respecting person agree to this slavery? But thats what sheep do I guess. Its in their nature.
