O'Reilly is not in the business of reporting every single crime in the country. Local reporters don't even do that. He's a news commentator, not a news reporter. He comments and leads discussions on the pressing issues of the day that affect all of us. And he looks out for the folks. Your liberal media doesn't. They look out for the elitists they put in power.
considering O'Reilly never addresses the larger issue of white on white crime, no he is not in the business of reporting every single crime in the country. he's in the business of race baiting to keep his ratings up.

The Tragedy of Greek Austerity Continues…
After writing about the tragedy of Greek austerity for more than a year, I’ve love to (finally) have some good news to share. But when it comes to austerity, the news is never good. In Greece, the news is bad and getting worse.
The latest news is that Greece’s economy is still shrinking. In fact, the Greek economy just posted its 20th consecutive decline, shrinking 4.6 percent in the three months through June – for a grand total of 20 percent shrinkage since January 2008. The only good news is that economists predicted a shrinkage rate of 5 percent.
For millions of Greeks bearing up under six years of austerity measures, and an economy stuck in recession because of those austerity measures, that the economy shrank slightly less than predicted is nothing to cheer about. The impact of austerity on ordinary Greek citizens is the real tragedy.

in order to get a loan from the EU? 6 years ago?
Are you kidding me? The Greeks couldn't give their government any more of their money to be taken care of them from cradle to grave.

Austerity was the only alternative. It's what happens when you don't pay heed to the warning "The government can give and the government can take away." It's what happens when the government runs out of other people's money.

Obama wants us to become another Greece.

<quoted text> The socialist policies is still the cause of it no matter how many articles you cut and paste. We will be Greece if we continue down this path. How many people do you know who work just to pay for the coffee they had last year? How many people you know that are so overwhelmed by debt that they just go to work to keep the creditors at bay but appear to be affluent and well to do? Bet there are more than you think. People live beyond their means. Countries are the same way. You can't live beyond your means with socialist programs. The house of cards (credit) will always fall.
yeah, i'm going to go with your opinion that can't back up with a real source.

so how come austerity didn't fix socialism? 6 years on and Greece is in worse shape then when they started cutting.

You need to Google "EU Greece austerity measures" to assess a wealth of knowledge about how aid to Greece is still being given if Greece continues their austerity program.

Come on, you made up this claim that this stopped 6 years ago line.

If Syria doesn't surrender it's chemical weapons; there will likely be a strike. It's up to him now, do it or get smashed to smithereens.
Does anyone like that scenario? No. But that's probably going to be the outcome.
Let's hope that diplomacy will prevail.

Hi Mush Mind.
If your propaganda copy & paste job was true, then why:
1. Did the U.N. tell Obama No?
2. Our allies tell Obama No?
3. The American people tell Obama no?
4. Congress tell Obama No?
I hear there is a sale on K-Y jelly. You should get some for your deep throat swallowing the bullshit you buy in to.

No surprise that you missed the point entirely. Seems to be a reich wingnut information thing.

Really? You really have to ask that? They dug themselves a big hole and you expect them to fix it by some minor cuts while still keeping all the socialist policies in place? You are more naive than I thought.

i'll add it to the list along with CRAs, Obama's college records, and the WMDs that Reagan sold Saddam so we could use that for a excuse to attack him later.
