O'Reilly? No, O'Wrongly

Last week Bill Orally made, on his nationally-shown Faux News infotainment show, an absolutely flabbergasting statement concerning homeless veterans sleeping under bridges:

They may be out there, but there’s not many of them out there. Okay? … If you know where there's a veteran sleeping under a bridge, you call me immediately, and we will make sure that man does not do it.
This is over the top, even for a dickwad bully who has made a history out of making outrageous -- and flat out wrong -- statements about pretty much everything.

If you get a chance, please drop by the website set up by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), watch the video, and then send the open letter to Billo urging to set the record straight on homeless veterans.

It's going to be a lot of hard work for Billo to get all 200,000 (according to that bastion of America-hating terrorist-enabling Bush-hating Islamo-fascio-communism, the US Department of Veterans Affairs) homeless veterans out from under those bridges.

But if you look closely at his statement, he doesn't really say he's going to do anything to help those homeless veterans. He's just going to get them out from under those bridges. What they do next is up to them, but I'm sure Billo thinks that they can pull themselves up by their bootstraps, just the way he did.

After all, we all know about the desperate poverty that he was forced to grow up in, in that heated house in Levittown, with a full dinner table each night and the support of his extended family.

Maybe if Billo had to spend a few winter nights under one of those bridges, he'd have a little more compassion for the people who have to.

Yeah, like that's gonna happen.

O'Reilly - what a tool. I mean, I've been really angry about what hes been saying the past few weeks. But this a-hole is actually giving the issue the most press it's ever gotten.

It's time to capitalize and come up with the legislation that would put ALL homeless vets in supportive housing NOW and put that in front of some of our "leaders"and demand that they pass it. It's ridiculous.
But right now it is ON -

If you care about homeless veterans, I urge you to see WHEN I CAME HOME - a film all about homeless vets in the US, including some who had served in combat in Iraq.
