We're from the same middle-class, working-class Long Island. You were the homecoming queen at Commack High School. I was nothing at Shamana (ph) High School.

O'DONNELL: But let me tell you this, we didn't have the money to go to Shamana.

O'REILLY: Right. Well, I didn't either, but my father made a supreme sacrifice to get me there. But anyway, we're the same person. Now I watch you, and I see a person whose values don't reflect Long Island any more. I mean...

O'DONNELL: I don't think that's true.

O'REILLY: Well, let me run down a couple of things.

O'DONNELL: OK, but let's -- let me say after each one, I want to respond, because here's...

O'REILLY: Oh, absolutely.

O'DONNELL: ... one thing. Anything you're going to talk to me about guns, I want to say it's after Columbine. Children were killed, and I am a mother, and I was devastated by that fact. That's number one. And I'm not excusing my behavior, and I stand by what I said, although some of my comments in retrospect seem a little outlandish.

Like the day after Columbine, when I said, Anyone who has a gun should go to jail. I was afraid that children were being killed every day.

O'REILLY: So you would take that back.

O'DONNELL: Yes. It was the day after Columbine...

O'REILLY: Right.

O'DONNELL: ... and I was watching these children be pulled out of windows with their bloody bodies, and...

O'REILLY: You reacted emotionally.

O'DONNELL: Well, emotionally. And you know what else, Bill? I also have some issues with depression in my life, and feeling as though sometimes the bad guys are in control.

O'REILLY: OK, so you weren't at your, the top of your game there.

O'DONNELL: No, I wasn't.


O'DONNELL: But I do think that the passion with which I spoke about why we shouldn't have these instruments that kill so many kids around so readily. I still stand by that.

O'REILLY: OK. No one wants children to have access to guns...


O'REILLY: ... and no one wants dead children.


O'REILLY: But the point of the matter is that when people like you speak out, it makes headlines...

O'DONNELL: Correct.

O'REILLY: ... (UNINTELLIGIBLE) -- but my point (UNINTELLIGIBLE) is that you, Barbara Streisand, and a lot of the celebrities who come off very judgmental. You have bodyguards, right?

O'DONNELL: Do I have a bodyguard?

O'REILLY: You have bodyguards.

O'DONNELL: Yes, I do.

O'REILLY: Because you need them.


O'REILLY: You're controversial, OK?


O'REILLY: They pack. And they...

O'DONNELL: They have guns.

O'REILLY: To protect you and your family.


O'REILLY: You have to give that same right to other people.

O'DONNELL: But I never said, I said I want all guns licensed and registered -- except for the day after Columbine, when I said nobody should have a gun.

I can't stand Rosie O'Donnell <!--emo&:angry:--><img src="" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':angry:'><!--endemo-->, or for that matter, many of the syndicated talk show hosts currently on TV today. As a matter of fact, there's not a whole lot of shows worth watching, period. Give me one of the classic books listed on the "favorite books" thread or maybe cast a few bullets, stroke a gun or two, and I'll be happy and content.

Television just isn't the same since the days of "American Sportsman","Gunsmoke","Bonanza",
and the "Andy Griffith show".

Too bad, the world seemed a little brighter and better during those days.

Minor embellishment: O'Reilly went to Chaminade, which is a private catholic school, solid but no Phillips Academy.   Commack is a monstrous suburban h###.  Basically, they both know their audiences well -- his, conservative catholics (and those that have similar values) and her's, suburban hausfraus.

Now that American Sportsman. Boy, that's a blast from the past.

It's hard to imagine a hunting/fishing show that was actually on network television at one time. Like we are on another planet now.

Follow meeee to worlds of adventurrrre, follow meeeee............

That theme song will be in my head for days now.

When I think that people like Rosie, Barbara S., Opra are consulted on issues that require thinking, I shutter.
Maybe it's time to reserve the vote for only those folks who have proved they are capable of decerning thought.

I think Mr. O'Rielly made a very important point:  Rosie O'Donnell and her family are PROTECTED by people who carry GUNS!  She is a hypocrite.  I cannot afford to hire a bodyguard to protect my wife and children; she can.  She is rich; I am not.  She is famous and has the luxury of opening her mouth in front of a camera and her views will get exposure.  The fact that she has this fame and a talk show where she can spew forth her opinions on national television makes her an authority to some people; especialy those who cannot think for themselves.  Their votes carry the same weight as yours and mine.

Gun grabbing polititians get a lot of help from people like her.  And a lot of Americans fall right in line with the views of the famous.  I'm afraid many will not wake up.  They think that these people are experts on the subject; when in fact they live in gated communities, separated from the rest of us with no exposure to everyday life.  Rest assured, these people will still have armed bodyguards after you and I are disarmed.  Remember that they have already proved in Great Britain and Austrailia that "registration" means "confiscation."

I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but every time I see O'Donnell's face or hear her voice I want to vomit.  To me she is no authority and has no interest in the safety of my children; but she wants to take away my GOD given right to protect them with whatever means I can obtain.

She should stick to what she is actually an "expert" in, stand up comedy (although I don't think she is funny either).
