Watching the way Billo O’Reilley treated his “guest”, Joe Klein of Time magazine, tonight, only re-emphasizes that O’Reilley is a crude, low down sleazo creep. I find it amazing that good people continue to let this pervert get away with the ugly sexual harassment law suit against Billo that resulted in his paying the woman $10 million dollars or so, and declaring that he would “never discuss it again.” He should either allow everyone else the same considerations he assumes for himself or start talking about his own perversions.
I quote from the record of the lawsuit, filed in New York, Plaintiff a lady named Andrea Mackris, an employee of Fox at the time, who reported directly to, and supervised by, Defendant Bill O’Reilley, entitled ALLEGATIONS OF QUID PRO QUO SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND A SEXUALLY HOSTILE WORK ENVIRONMENT…..created & maintained a virulently hostile work environment through explicit, rampant, pervaisve and continued sex discrimination & sexual harassment against Plainiff Andrea Mackris, and other female employees that was so offensive and severe that it detrimentally altered the terms & conditions of Plaintiff’s employment.
(30.) …Andrea Mackris has been subjected to the mercurial and unpredictable mood swings of her boss, Defendant Bill O’Reilley, a personality who can be paternal and engaging at one instant, tyrannical and menacing the next.
(31.) …Andrea Mackris was sexually harassed by her immediate supervisor, Bill O’Reilley.
(36.) …Bill O’Reilley proceeded to inform Plaintiff Andrea Mackris that he had advised another woman to purchase a vibrator, and had taught the woman how to masturbate, while telling her sexual stories over the telephone. ….O’Reilley then boasted that the woman had her first orgasm via masturbation as he spoke to her on the telephone.
(37.) ….Defendant Bill O’Reilley….(told Mackris) he received a massage in a cabana in Bali and the “little, short, brown woman asked to see his penis and was “amazed”. Defendant then suggested he tell Plaintiff Andrea Mackris the same sexual stories which he knew she would “just love.” Defendant objected and expressed disbelief.
Bill O’Reilly invited Andrea Mackris and college friend to dinner, repeatedly propositioned the women, talking about telephone sex, and suggesting the 3 of them go to a hotel together and “have the time of their lives.” Both Plaintiff and her friend were repulsed by subsequent sexual stories, suggestions of telephone sex, begging Plaintiff Andrea Mackris to have telephone sex with him that night; she refused.
(46.) Defendant Bill O’Reilley bragged to Andrea Mackris that he had telephone sex with other youong women.
(54.) O’Reilley vehemently threatened (Andrea Mackris) with words to he effect: “If any woman ever breathed a word I’ll makeher pay so dearly that she’ll wish she’d never been born. I’ll take her through the mud, brig up things in her life and make her so miserable she’ll be destroyed. And besides, she wouldn’t be ablve to afford the lawyers I can or endure it financially, as long as I can. And nobody would believe her, it’d be her word against mine and who are they going to believe? Me or some unstable woman making ourtageous accusations. They’d see her as some psycho, someone unstable. Besides, I’d never make the mistake of picking unstable, crazy girls like that.”
(55.) During the course of the conversation, Defendant Bill O’Reilley further sternly warned to the effect: “If you cross Fox News Channel,it’s not just me, it’s Fox (President) Roger Ailes who will go after you. I’m the street guy out front making loud noises about the issues, but Ailes operates behind the scenes, strategizes and makes things happen so that one day, BAM! The person gets what’s coming to them but never sees it coming. Look at Al Franken, one day he’s going to get a knock on his door and life as he’s known it it will change forever. That day will happen, trust me.”
(56.) ….Al Franken’s finished and he’s going to e sorry he ever took Fox News Channel on.” Plaintiff found O’Reilley’s paranoid rambling both strange and alarming.
(63.) ….Bill O’Reilley phoned Plaintiff Andrea Mackris at home after interviewing 2 porn stars on “The O’Reilley Factor”, apparently O’Reilley was “excited” from the show. Defendant Bill O’Reilley launched into a vile and degradig monologue about sex.
(66.) ….Defendant Bill O’Reilley suggested Plaintiff Andrea Mackris purchase a vibrator and name it, and that he had one “shaped like a cock, with a little battery in it” that a woman had given him. It became apparent the defendant was masturbating as he spoke. …..She (Plaintiff) was shocked, frightened and upset. She felt trapped. (Various phone calls from Defendant to Plaintiff ensue.) O’Reilly offers to teach Andrea Mackris how to use a vibrator, saying he would coach her through it.
(78.) ….O’Reilley further stated (3 paragraphs) they could shower together, giving rise to the numerous “loofa” jokes that have been around regarding this particular incident. Bill O’Reilley further stated “So anyway, I’d be rubbing your big boobs and getting your nipples really hard, kinda kissing your neck from behind, and then I would take the other hand with the falafel (sic) thing and I’d put it in your pussy but you’d have to do it really light, just kind of tease business…”
(79.) ….Bill O’Reilley suggested he would perform oral sex upon Plaintiff Andrea Mackris and that she would start to perform fellatio nupon his “big cock” but not complete the sex act, just “tease”…
(81.) …During the course of Defendant Bill O’Reilley’s sexual rant, it became clear he was using a vibrator on himself and that he ejaculated. Plaintiff Andrea Mackris was repulsed.
(82.) …after climaxing, Defendant Bill O’Reilley again boasted that none of the women he’d engaged in sexual activity with would ever tell, ostensibly due to his powerful position….
The entire transcript of the lawsuit is available on line. And this is the man who chooses to “track down and expose” other people…

via Movie Sparks Battle Over the Bible. The Christian right will distort the truth, deny the facts, try to rewrite history and create their own set of “facts” in order to control the thoughts and minds of their cult followers. Darwin has the upper hand on this one all the way. There is not one single scinilla of proof anywhere of stores from the Bible, it is 100% based on myth, fantasy, wishful thinking, and subject to myriad interpretations, usually to suit the twisted needs and desires of religious fanatics. It should be enough for them to accept their version of the “truth”, apply it to their lives as they see fit, get on with their lives and leave others alone. But true to fashion, they are not content to live according to their beliefs, but are hell bent on imposing them on everyone else.
There are volumes of facts regarding evolution, concrete evidence that’s been held in human hands, enough to open even the most closed mind. The truth is the truth, evolution is a proven fact and a very recognized, sure science. One can believe in God and still believe in evolution, or not, but noone is entitled to their own set of facts. “Thank God” our scientists are intelligent, non prejudiced and realistic people who are only interested in the history of the earth and the universe and have no stake in proving the Bible; if they did, I’m sure they would present evidence of the Bible truths just as they do the Darwinian truths of evolution and be just as excitd about their discoveries. Meantime, it’s a fascinating subject and I will continue to research, read and absorb all the facts and information I can regarding the evolution of the earth and man. And when concrete evidence regarding Bible stories is discovered and presented, that will be equally exciting.
“Prince Frederic” is like a recurring nightmare. First, the poor thing hangs around a very gay Starbucks in West Hollywood, nearly every afternoon, even on rainy days and week ends, sitting at a sidewalk table all alone, smoking a cigar, for hours at a time, surrounded by gay men. This is wierd behavior for a so called “Prince” who should be top heavy with “royal” duties, many brunches, luncheons and dinners to attend. However, “Prince” Frederic seems to have nothing but time on his hands and in need of attention -but from whom is questionable. He payed $5,000 to marry Zsa Zsa Gabor when she was decades older than him, moved into her house in Bel Air, promptly started driving around West Hollywood and Beverly Hills in a fine, fine, fine Rolls Royce, lunching at the Ivy, being interviewed there (and anywhere else) by anyone including any tourist with a camera. He accompanied his “wife” to the Beverly Hills Court House during her cop slapping trial, claimed to be the father of Anna Nicole Smith’s baby (this one is particularly pathetic – yuk!), spread the word that he had been stripped naked (yuk! again) and tied to the steering wheel of “his” Rolls Royce by aliens from another planet, possibly the same planet he is from. La Da Da. Thanksgiving 2009 found him out passing out frozen turkeys to poor people, embracing fat dirty old women as he presented them their turkeys, as a flashbulb or two went off. Pitiful is putting it kindly. And now, The “Prince” who is among our area’s strangest senior citizens, is running for Governor of California. Obviously the “fame” of being married to Zsa Zsa has long worn off and the publicity hungry “Prince” is in search of a fame feeding frenzy. He is too old even to replace “Angeline, the Local Billboard Queen” so maybe he should use some of his billboard money to pay off some of Zsa Zsa’s back taxes. He is like a cartoon character, look at that ridiculous green get up with all the buttons, bangles, ribbons and medals, I somehow feel each one is as phony and worthless as the old man who wears them. Besides we already have a loud mouth German (or is he Hungarian?) for Governor and one will be quite enouch, thank you. One thing I can say for the “Prince” is he has chutzpa and doesn’t seem to mind making a perfect ass of himself. To be sure noone would give him a second glance under ordinary circumstances, so he is bound to keep on thinking up new schemes in his pathetic quest for attention.
The earthquakes in Haiti are likely the greatest human tragedy in the history of the Western Hemisphere. The United States, true to form, has again demonstated it’s greatness with the response and responsibility it has taken in helping the Haitian people in so many ways. Hopefully, this will raise the awareness level in this hemisphere and throughout the rest of the civilized world, of the untold poverty, filth, disease, overpopulation and extreme social disorder that makes Haiti amoung the most primitive, backward and under developed societies in the world.
Personally, it occurred to me that the birth rate in Haiti should be looked at by those in authority, whoever they are, and the Haitian people should be educated and taught the various methods of birth control, perhaps even voluntary sterilization. The birth rate in Haiti surpasses any other in the Western Hemisphere, a woman giving birth to 12-15 babies is not uncommon, about 700 of every 100,000 women die in childbirth. It is easy for me to believe that the Haitian women would be open to learning and practicing birth control methods, or sterilization, especially since many of them drink poison to get rid of their baby. Thousand of babies there are born out of wedlock as a result of rape, incest and prostitution, all of which are very common. A case is described of one 14 year old girl giving a painful birth to the baby of her 68 year old uncle. Doctors Without Borders Hospital has 66 beds and delivers more than 1,000 babies per month. As one doctor put it, “Every pair of gloved hands is prepared to catch a baby at any given time.” How tragic, so many babies born, not only into poverty, but with little or no chance of a better life, often born already sick and dying. Why don’t more people ask…WHY? Why doesn’t the civilized world try to do something to improve this out of control situation? Charities keep asking for money to feed the babies, to help the children, to buy medicine for the sick; as a charitable person, I now wonder what good can it possibly do to send more and more money to feed the babies when they keep reproducing at a rate that is totally unreasonable and should be unacceptable to those of us who are trying to help and improve things there. I think these charities should spend a large amount of their funds trying to effect a serious birth control program for both Haitian women and men as there is no way the Haitians could afford birth control pills, for example, or pay for any other birth control method. At the current rate, the tragedy of childbirth and overpopulation in Haiti is without end unless the birth rate is seriously curtailed and the Haitian people are agressively taught and encouraged to practice birth control. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and sterilization should be a viable option in an attempt to get some semblance of control and reason over this currently out of control and beyond reason situation.
The good people of the great Commonwealth of Massachusetts have a right to elect whomever they please to the senate. That being said, it is my opinion that they gave a giant smack in the face to the memory of the late Senator Edward Kennedy who served them more than well for 47 years, particularly since health care for all Americans was the life time goal of his work. I would think Sen. Kennedy is restless in his grave knowing the betrayal of the people of the land he lived in and loved for his entire life. For that reason, among others, I wonder why they would elect someone diametrically opposed to the principles and values that Sen. Kennedy stood for in their service? Scott Brown is a strange character and it’s his business that he posed nude in a 1982 issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine, (which gives new meaning to the politics of “Bush”), that he offered up his daughters as “available” during his senatorial acceptance speech, ostensibly to whichever men wanted them. However, it is the concern of many that Mr. Brown voted against giving help to 9-11 recovery workers, wondered on a TV interview if Barack Obama was born out of wedlock, had a meltdown in front of 80 high school students at a student assembly because they made fun of him on a Facebook site, using vile, vulgar language and curse words that stunned his audience, and other questionable occasions of strange behavior too numerous to mention here.
I am a great Keith Olbermann fan, although sometimes I think he talks too fast and is terribly hard on some people in his tirades against those with whom he has a beef. Keith described Scott Brown as “an irresponsible, homophobic, racist reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagger, supporter of violence against women and against politicians with whom he disagrees.”
Maybe that’s Scott Brown in a nutshell, I don’t know. What I do know is that I am extremely disappointed in my fellow New Englanders and what I consider their wrong choice, which I’m afraid will be revealed to them in a frightening way at a time when there is nothing they can do about it. I have lived in Los Angeles most of my life, but am from New England, and have always been proud that, although New Hampshire went to George W. Bush in the disasterous & corrupt presidential election of 2000, not once otherwise did any New England state go to George W. Bush. And now the election of a Republican senator from Massachusetts for the first time since 1972 gives me great pause and I hope to God this is an anomaly and not a harbinger of things to come. Heaven forbid!
To call Obama’s presidency ineffective would be an understatement. He continues to speak well, but he demonstrates a clear lack of leadership skills, stands on the sidelines while sending others into the eye of the storm, hoping they will accomplish something that he can take credit for. He is a timid man, afraid to offend anyone, seems he can’t bear criticism, is very thin skinned when it comes to his ego and self image. He voted “present” 100 times as an Illinois senator so he wouldn’t offend anyone, remaining noncomittal. Clearly he wanted to play both sides as running for president was in the back of his mind even at that time. It seems his presidency is about him and not about the country and the American people. If Obama doesn’t grow some in the very near future, I fear the downhill trend of his presidency will continue and he will be a 1 term president.
