    Fuck Congress. I'm now an Independent voter. Both parties are full of shit and lie to our faces only to get a vote.

    I never realized just how great Jon was when it comes to activism. He cares, and he wants the people who risked their lives to save whoever they could to be taken care of.

    In China, the government always take in charge, but no one can criticize. In US, anyone can criticize the government, but no one would be responsible. Both imperfect systems.

    Do you know why his lines are so quotable? Because no one else says these things. No one. This has been the case with many of Jon's words. He lends his articulation to the poor, the unrecognized, the beaten down. The victims of the world... and especially the victims of America. I'm happy he's focused on something not only important, but completely non-arguable. Yet, here he is having to, in fact, argue the importance of these people; the same people mentioned by at least one million individuals on Twitter or any social media over the years. These people who, then, and now, have remained absolutely unseen. Today, we witness their faceless identities, as considered by our politicians. The disposable usefulness of these men and women, as told by each and every one of those empty chairs of Congress.

    Anyone else watch HBO's Chernobyl and ask themselves why we're treating our heroes as poorly as the USSR treated theirs?

    Jon Stewart is a wonderful human being and he puts most of us to shame.

    Tittle does not represent the real message of this video. Shame on CNN for masking this as another viral clip with such a unmeaningful and misleading title.

    Who could possibly ‘dislike’ this video. These are true American heroes...this has nothing to do with politics. This has to do with people that ran toward the buildings as they were crashing to the ground. God bless these people and their families.
