Bill O'Reilly as Paul Revere?

We've been saying this for YEARS!

Oh well, I guess even a broken watch is correct twice a day.

There is truth there, along with his usual 'its Obamas fault, gosh darn it, commie pinko liberals" schtick.

What he should have said is that both parties have consistently over a period of decades dug the USA a financial hole from which is escape is now impossible. But hey, we wont be the first to fall and we're taking everybody else with us when we do go.

I think DC4Life said it best man. It isn't that Americans don't care, its that in a very realistic sense most Americans (especially those between the ages of 20-35) already have a lot on their plate. Families, kids, full time jobs, school, medical needs, whatever. So when they listen to a report by a guy like O'Reilly after all of that what exactly should they do?

Get their gun and start shooting? Write an angry letter to their rich ass congressman?

We know the dollar is going to collapse, it's inevitable. It's also the main currency used in our country, and since most American's are living on thin ice as it is then it's unlikely they will drop all the money they do have on Gold or Silver.

Is it common sense to have some investment like this? Sure. Is it practical for every American family to do because Fox News is (and lets face it they have been saying it via commercials for years, you've seen the ads) saying this on their regular broadcast?


It's not the point and you're not paying attention, just as O'Reilly said. The idea that people work and have life obligations is nothing new. As a matter of fact, go back to the days when this nation was formed and tell me it was an easier life then than now. You can't an it wasn't. It's never been easy, but today people want it easy and won't make the effort to help themselves or go out of their way to do something to change the status quo.

Those same people, 25 - 35, who you claim are so busy, have plenty of time to be on FB, here on ATS like yourself, watch idiotic episodes of the Jersey Shore and a myriad of other worthless crap, yet you feel they're overburdened with real life issues to do anything about how their government is destroying this nation.

Get a clue! This place is going to hell because of the distractions and selfish exploits, not because people have no time or because they're working too hard.

Same # different day

And here they're talking about it in...wait for it....2003

Here's MSNBC talking about it
and in 2009

But when O'Reilly says it, he's a savant and it must be true and imminent....
and he's the first person to ever bring it to the mainstream's attention...smh

He didn't say it was solely Obama's fault, but that's what you heard. This is the trouble with this nation and it was planned that way. Two parties to divide and conquer. They're robbing us blind.

If you read between the lines, and take into account everything else O'Reilly has said, then it is quite clear he is implying it is solely Obama's fault.

Lairs to the RIGHT of me......Liars to the LEFT of me.....stuck in the middle ready to lose everything.



The Republicans would do exactly the same thing and Bill would say nothing. That is the problem both sides are the same at the top. Mr. Paul was our only hope for real change and the sheep did not wake up.



By the way Bill you are no Paul Revere you are a scum bag lair. Bill would have helped Hitler gain power if he lived in Germany during that time. This is the simple cold hard truth. You are not a patriot of freedom you have no honor.

Let's stop blaming the president for over spending. The people who are in charge of passing these spending bills are none other than our elected congressional representatives. They continue to ignore cuts in military spending, black project budgets, foreign aid and big oil aid. However, conservatives will turn a blind eye to cutting anything from these programs.

I'm all for spending cuts, but when you want to cut programs that help the unemployed, the sick, the homeless and the elderly, than you have no compassion for the human race. Instead the U.S. should be cutting numerous military bases around the world and put on hold any spending for new military equipment that kill and start wars. When our military spending is 6 times more than the entire military budget of China, who is second to none, we can afford to reduce this budget immensely for the time being until we get our house back in order. Humanity is more important than a dozen new jet fighters, military equipment, foreign bases, supporting industries that have yearly record profits, sending billions to countries who harbor terrorists, or countries who's military can defend themselves.

Remember when Obama was running the first time what he was saying about WAR.
Do you also remember the patriot act.
What about keeping wall street out of the white house.





Liberals you have bought into a lie just like the conservatives under Bush. Both sides are being played like a fiddle.

No reading between the lines is necessary. Obama has put us further in debt than any president prior. Period. And, he's done nothing to stem the spending and in fact, has no issues with increasing it. Period.

The only good that will come of any of this is libs will suffer just as much as the rest of us.

Liberals need to wake up and fast before this country is a complete wreck. Conservatives are waking up in huge numbers when will the liberals see the cold hard truth? Are they so weak of mind they can not see they are being played? Only time will tell.

If O'Reilly is saying it, that may mean the elite have decided to begin psychologically preparing the public. We're getting closer.
FOX will blame it on Obama. MSNBC and other "liberal" stations will blame it on rich people.
They're both right, of course.
Anyway, it may just be he's picking up on a common meme in the conservative alternate media in an attempt to pick up viewers. If you see hints of this in other mainstream media (of which FOX is one whether they want to be or not), it could be planting a seed for the public.
Kind of like the recent themes propagandizing about how the Constitution is antiquated.

That thought never even crossed my mind but you are 100% right.
It might be time for people to check out the good survival forum ATS has.



Bill=TPTB and they might be trying to spin this before it happens. Remember both sides are controlled.

We're all to blame for letting this happen. I regrettably supported Bush. In hindsight, I can see how we were played. I guess it will take the same time duration for the left to realize they too were played, but by then it will be too late.

Someone was saying not to attack the messenger, but to debate the information.
1. Nothing to debate here. People have been saying this all over ATS quite literally for years now.
2. Bill Oreilly is the biggest tool of a "journalist" I have ever seen. He reminds me of Louis Prothero

Maybe not in a years time, but it sure would put a bigger dent into paying off the debt quicker and more compassionately than the spending cuts they're proposing. It also wouldn't be on the backs of taxpayers who are struggling to get by week after week. The medicare and social security cuts are spread out over a 10 year period. Medicare cuts of 700 billion are over a 10 year period.

Black Projects - 51 Billion a year.

Military Budget -$680 Billion a year ($170 billion goes toward foreign bases)

Foreign Aid - $50 Billion a year

Corporate Welfare = $24 Billion a year

Additional Budget to support the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq (A war we should have never started nor continued).


By the end of 2008, the U.S. had spent approximately $900 billion in direct costs on the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. Indirect costs such as interest on the additional debt and incremental costs of caring for the more than 33,000 wounded borne by the Veterans Administration are additional. Some experts estimate these indirect costs will eventually exceed the direct costs.[7] As of June 2011, the total cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is approximately $3.7 trillion so far.[8]

What does that have to do with who authorizes spending programs? My thread has nothing to do with Obama's election promises. We can save that for another thread. My main point of the OP is congress is the only one responsible for writing the checks not the president.

You can complain about Obama Care, gun control, the war in Afghanistan, the patriot act, but your elected officials are the people who sign-off on these programs whether your like it or not. They control the check book, not the president.

No, no, no. The disclaimer doesn't work. How could you hate the ATS community so much that you would post Bill O' Reilly's opinion on anything?


Yes, the dollar is going to collapse. I've heard it since 2008, yet the dollar is not backed by gold, it's backed by the U.S. military. If the military collapses then the dollar will collapse, unless the U.S. starts producing something besides weapons. Of course, this is only my view of it


Well your view is just wrong.

The economic markets are everywhere, we can't declare war on everyone in the world, including our own citizens. It is not like WWII, we cannot be like Germany and simply take over countries for their resources, and that didn't work in the long run for them either. Try something like that today and you will get nuclear war. There isn't even enough resources to steal to pay for more than a few years of trillion dollar deficits even if we could get away with it. Spending has to be cut, there is no way around it.

By the way the dollar doesn't have to collapse, if we cut spending in half and actually started paying down the debt, it would actually become incredibly strong. Citizens would not accept this however because they really believe they are entitled, so the government is going to print like mofo's to claim they are doing something, and probably publicly say they don't know why the dollar is devaluing. They know it will not work and will be even worse than cutting our budget to sustainable levels, but it provides them some political cover because most people are just to dumb to even understand what is going on.

Certainly I can be wrong, proximo
But it does look suspiciously like NATO is not really a defense alliance, but rather an economic alliance. How about hundreds of military bases all over the world? Do these countries where we have military bases have to spend money on their own military? Why would the U.S. dollar collapse if we can simply cut military spending? Why do we keep invading countries and overthrowing governments? I think the U.S. dollar is backed by the U.S. military.
