                I disagree a lot with John Stewart in general but this was brilliant. He didn't have to do this. He fought hard for what he thought was right and succeeded on behalf of his fellow New Yorkers.

                      50 years from now, retarded people will be using their minds to post about how the system is broken because Congress didn't do something for some guys that politicians said they care about. It never strikes Americans that maybe their govt just doesn't really care. Certain demographics are going to vote a particular direction no matter what, so some shit you'll get to whenever the fuck you get to it. What the hell are the families of 1st responders gonna do, vote for a bunch of Black Far Leftists? Fuck outta here.

                            Well, well the efforts ofJohn Stewart made "the sonald" do the right thing; I'll bet forceing him to help the people he called"losers" is gonna stick in his craw the rest of his life!

                                Bush and O bomb a       did nothing  for the vets either,   Trump just signed the bill  and has been fighting for veterans since he arrived in office.

                                  da , he dropped a lot of bombs...  read Books on 911 By Chris Bollyn  and learn who did it.  I know  a great deal about 911  , I could give lectures on the subject.

                                  This is about 9/11 first responders, not war veterans... try to keep up. Btw, making up nicknames by rearranging or adding letters to someone's name is super childish. Do you actually think you're being clever??

                                        When a comedian has to come yell at you, say you should be ashamed and that your a bunch of cowards, to get you to help the first responders of 9/11 is when you know you have a problem. This man never stops amazing me. He really is great.

                                            I still remember there was a documentary where someone brought some first responders over to Canada and they were treated foc. After treatment, they hailed them as heroes and wished them well.

                                            Why I brought this up is because I would like to make a point that its extremely shameful for Americans when your own government won't even help.

It’s embarrassing that first responders and veterans get treated like absolute garbage. That ignorant self absorbed POS and the parasites holding the highest levels of office use their power and greed to help only those within their fraternity. And take credit for accomplishing other people’s successes.
