Meme aside I teared up to his tirade
Everyone needs to see this video, it is a good reminder of what first responders, victims, and others of the 9/11 terrorist attacks are still going through to this day, dam sad Congress couldn’t give these people the time and attention they deserve ( not the least bit surprising though Congress sucks ass)
@Squares Town, Whats the video called?
@Captain Correction, honestly, just look up John Stewart Congress speech. Should find it rather quickly
@Squares Town, everything he said was right on target. A good example what it looks like to love your country, but be disappointed in what its foundation stands on now.
The legend. The meme doesn't do him justice.
Jon is a national treasure and should be protected at all costs. Despite Jon being a staunch democrat, people on both sides of the aisle respect him and vouch for his character. And he’s funny as hell to boot.
@Diddle Kid, also side note: did he get hot since he retired from the Daily Show?
@Diddle Kid, he was able to grow out his beard and let it go full gray. So yeah he absolutely got hot
I don’t always agree with Jon, but goddamn he gave congress a piece of America’s mind right there.
I’m 28 and I have never felt any emotion towards my parents, sister, or grandparents. I have a huge family but at the same time I have no family. For the longest time I thought something was wrong with me. Even as a kid I knew something was wrong. you are supposed to love your family but I feel absolutely nothing. This past semester in college I read a chapter on child abuse and that shįt hit way too close to home. I had to face the realization that I was mentally and emotionally neglected and abused my whole life. It hasn’t been easy but I’m dealing with it. Just knowing there’s nothing wrong with me and it’s not my fault helps. Sorry for the long post.
@the angry mail lady, I felt this way a lot when I was growing up, and I know part of it was, despite my mom’s best efforts, I was always sort of cast aside as a kid. I was the youngest of her two kids, and she and my brother got on a lot better for a number of reasons. That, combined with the fact that most of the family I had growing up was my brother’s father’s side of the family, always left me feeling really alone and isolated. My mom and I are much closer now, but it’s because we’ve both kinda chilled on what a mother/son relationship SHOULD be, and really just appreciate each other for how we are as people.
@the angry mail lady, they teach us a lot of things during our childhood. How to read, write, how to do basic math and learn basic history. What they don't teach us is how to recognize abuse, especially when it's happening to yourself. It's not your fault.
“You ruined our lives by having us exist”
Watched this after seeing the meme. He made a good point that the bill should stand alone and people shouldn’t be tacking things to it to pass their political agenda or get tax money for their grand standing projects.
I say the message needs to be sent that anyone who tacks anything onto the bill and doesn’t hold it as solely its own object. Hates American Hero’s and the people who protect America and its people with their lives. And should be forced to resign.
Even the whole. Its a New York problem sounds like a load of bull spoken straight from the ass of the bull itself. That was a terrorist attack. In other words a national military emergency. It wasn’t a New York problem. It lead to a damned war. Was the war New York’s problem too? Or do the people who say such things not hear themselves speak nor see how big of a damned hypocrite they are when they post Remember The Hero’s on 9/11.
@Seohn, I think the problem with politics is that theres no minimum IQ level required.
Or people confuse someone being religious which actually having a decent moral compass.
