AchtungBono, I'll grant you this: you're a pretty damn dedicated troll.

I'm dedicated to truth and justice......if that makes me a troll then so be it.

Bill O'reilly and Fox news are the ONLY people I trust when it comes to reporting the news.

But didn't you get the sense, especially near the end, that this might have been a cynical set-up to garner ratings? I've often said before that O'Reilly, Coulter, and their ilk may not actually believe the nonsense they spew, but they know how to milk people's prejudices and fears and make a mint off it.

Geraldo is right-he is using it to make a cheap political point and he doesn't get it. His ancestors were in all likelihood immigrants, but I suppose they were 100 percent legal and wanted in this country because they spoke English-albeit with an Irish brogue. If they spoke English and not Gaelic. I guess he conveniently forgets the days of "no Irish need apply".

And Bill O'Reilly is in serious need of anger management class- and/or a loofah.

What an absolute disgrace that is. Geraldo has never looked more like the good guy then he did right there.

But I also agree using this story to further his agenda is pretty slimey.


but what if an illegal rush into a burning house and rescued a family? would you say that he shouldn't have been here because he was illegal?

I have a hard time believing that the little "we're different on this one issue which makes the entire network completely truthful" was just pulled out of nowhere after that kind of heated debate. I tend to agree with what you are saying.

Are you honestly telling me that you watched this "debate" and side with O'Reilly on this?

You've got an interesting definition of truth and justice if that's the case.

I'm curious as to why you never answer the specific questions asked of you? Did you watch the debate? And did you honestly think he made a point?

Forget it. It's always the same. A statement no one can comprehend, and then out of the thread before thinking could kick in.

well the term illegal kind of implies that, yes

im not saying we should use our resources to hunt down illegal immigrants to send them back, but if they fall into your lap by doing something else illegal, then yeah tough luck.

it's like if a guy is wanted for grand theft auto, but gets caught for something like public intoxication, the police aren't going to ignore the grand theft auto charge are they?

And there in lies the detail that makes a troll: lack of answering specific questions.
