                Jon Stewart is a complete asshole but he puts on a good show as being a self-righteous jackass. Jon is oh so white, ain't he? What a complete embarrassment for the human race. Jon is pissed off because Congress failed to show up for a washed-up has-been and a complete ball-less specimen of a man wannabe.

                            The funds for “The Wall” could cover all first responders’ needs. It is shameful that the government is run by people who only pay lip service to heroes when it suits them and not, like Mr Stewart so perfectly pointed out - when it matters. The potus should use his executive privilege to help these people out - he always toots his horn about being a New Yorker but again ... only when it suits him to look good or make money/power.

                                This congressional response over the years shows the heart-wrenching brilliance of the 9/11 attackers. These congresspeople, sitting in their elevated chairs making excuses while solidifying their own futures are cowards driven by money, illustrating the success of terrorism on our country.

                                I don't want you "serving" our country, you selfish people. Yet you hold the power, and will continue doing so. Fuck you all.

                                            Why congress does not want to release funds to help them? its because if they do, it will reopen conversations about what happen on 911 , what cause this to happen, what causes those who was police and fire department to get cancer RESEARCH . This opens up investigations and funds for it and pointing out who was the cause of this event what happen, what cause these men to get sick. This open up also discussions that the US government had information of this event was going to take place and why they did do anything to prevent it. So the US government wants to close the doors to these things, and this is why they do not want to give these brave men and women who went to help those at the twin towers these fund and help. To cover up US and President George Bush Jr actions and knowledge they had before 911 of this event and why they allowed it to happen....

                                              I totally understand you and what you're fighting for.....and the facts in my eyes were right in front of you ....our government doesn't really care about its people and what we do for them....and I feel that it is a huge hypocrisy that Congress won't give us the time of day to do for it's people what it's people need.....they take enough time to start wars and fund its own self imposed drug wars.....this is a fine example of what our government has finally come to...
