You pay $49.95 a year to read Bill O'Reilly, seriously? Either you have too much money, or you don't know where to shop.

What do you mean to read Bill O'Reilly? That's an odd thing to say. :??

I was so bored I recently rejoined billoreilly.com. You may want to try it Red, but it will cost you $4.95 per month or $49.95 per year. There is a quarterly rate too I think.

OK...I'll bite. What does your $49.95 get you?

It gets you into a message board populated by a choir full of people who are willing to give O'Reilly 50 bucks.

That's what I figured... talking points for sale.

That's pretty funny, coming from a guy who's still paying four bucks a gallon for gas.

P.S. I wouldn't join a Bill O'Reilly forum if he paid me fifty bucks a year.

How much do you pay? Please, if it's lower than what I pay, let me know where that station is.

Please tell me what is more fun and bang for your $49.95...buying Bill O'Reilly quotes or tromping on 435 HP and spending $49.95 worth of 91 octane every so often enabling such frivolity? :mrgreen:

Either O'Reilly is smarter than you, John, or he has dumber members... :lol:
You're missing a golden opportunity to break even on this board thing... :wink:

I get this feeling I'd be the only member if we charged.

It's funny. A lot of boards sell "Premium" memberships but damned if I can think of anything "premium" to offer. Well, I can but I have no idea how to block all traces of, um, "certain individuals."

$49.95 gets you a year of premium membership, which also comes with one of the books he has written free. Most if not all his books have made it to the NY best sellers list and remained there for weeks.

Access to participate on the message boards.
As of this moment there are:

* 97 members logged on
* 361 total threads
* 2253 active posting members
* 260031 total posts


There are all kinds of interesting things to read and polls to participate in. Comments to make as I said earlier. Merchandise to buy. Go to www.billoreilly.com and look around.

I don't exactly know what you are talking about, but I do know your forum would attract more users if you were not so overt about your dislike of certain forum members, including myself.

The Costco in Fountain Valley is at $2.65 today.

As for the $49.95, you have to factor in bang for the buck and the time-value of money. With O'Reilly, you get TV's most arrogant, condescending, insolent a-hole to nauseate you for an entire year. Conversely, you can suck $49.95 worth of gas through a 435 HP screamer in about two hours.

That is not the O'Reilly I have observed. Which makes me wonder if you are just passing on an opinion that came from someone else and not your own observation.

He can be arrogant, but he often will ask a guest, after giving his own opinion on something, "Am I wrong? " Or, "How am I wrong?"

Which I think is quite humble considering he makes around $18 million per year and his net worth is around $85 million.

O'Reilly's a piker... if the net worth from entertainers is important to you, this is net worth...and Mr.Brady is also a conservative...many think he is a cheater...juxtapose Carly's face with Gisele's... that's a face that would melt an iceberg. Most liberals wouldn't toss her for eating crackers.

Well in that case, I take back everything I ever said about Larry Flynt, Adam Sandler and the current GOP front runner.
