Bill O'Reilly makes my head hurt. Life would be so much easier if he was consistent in his jack-ass routine. If he would just stick to being a blowhard and a bully who encouraged Al Qaeda to blow up San Francisco, he would eventually lose all corporate sponsorship and end up in a van by the river eating government cheese.

But noooooo .. he had to go and say something downright humane:

"(T)he issue this evening is helping the children of military people, who have been killed in the war on terror. So far, about 1,100 American children have lost a parent in Iraq, and hundreds of other kids have had parents killed in Afghanistan.

We believe the U.S. government should pay college education costs for those children. At a time when patriotic Americans are volunteering to protect their country against evil, the government should step up and look out for their kids.

So we're asking congressmen and senators to draft legislation and pass a bill providing college tuition to the children of slain military people. We owe it to those who have died in the struggle to help their kids. And "The Factor" urges our federal leaders to directly contact us if they believe that as well.

Remember, the 9/11 families received government assistance. So this is a fair and logical proposition. We also encourage you to contact your congresspeople and senators and urge them to back this proposed legislation.
