    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. Much love from New Zealand.

    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.

    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.

And take credit for accomplishing other people’s successes.

    Mr. Stewart, I know it's the last thing you want but PLEASE RUN for the House or Senate. I spent 22 years inside government. I've seen this kind of gross injustice and corruption over and over. I will quit my job and work on your campaign full time. The men and women behind you need you - the country needs you. We need you because you give a damn. If the men and women occupying the halls of Congress showed 1/4 the civic duty and patriotism as those men and women who ran towards danger, the nation would be a million times better off. Please run.

    The straight, honest, and emotional speech given by Jon Stewart was remarkable and unforgettable. We can never forget the heroic efforts and sacrifices of the first responders of 9/11. Their efforts probably saved thousands of American lives that morning and we must do all that we can to stand behind them 100% and provide them the funding the need and deserve. Thank you Jon Stewart for having the backs of these American heroes!

    America is no doubt the greatest country on earth for many reasons but it is being ruined by the corrupt leaderships , those corrupt people in power did things like 9/11 . They don't give a fuck about average Americans , they have their own agendas. I think life in America is too fast and not everybody has the time to search and look into details and seek truth, majority of the people will trust the news shown on tv. so anything the Tv says , they will believe it. Poor and average citizens will suffer the most whether its happening in developed countries or developing countries, because of corrupt leaders.
