    Jon Stewart might be the comedian, but Congress is the joke.

    TasteMyStinkhole I am a black person and I am appalled at the way Americans come last-white,black and brown.While compassion and generosity are commendable attributes.And I sympathise with the people of Central America who are illegal immigrants and refugees to America.But their attitude is the USA owe them and they do not care about the Americans without jobs,homes and healthcare!America has to secure her border as do other countries.This is what Europe and other Western countries are faced with...

    Dwayne Pinkney He was a comedian as a job!But I always felt he was an intelligent person who cared genuinely about people.President Bush was too anxious to resume 'normal' activities after the 9/11 attack.The results of the EPA testing was rushed and politically motivated to send the people whose job it was to clean up the rubble and debris into a toxic environment.It has always been the sad epilogue of the American government policy to discard the honourable,patriotic men and women who served so wi...

    They deserve worse words than that. These people really deserve to be put in their place, deep in the ground.

    He is yelling primarily at the chamber members who aren't there. The majority of those on the council tbat day were people who likely support legislation that'd help these people.

    @A Person well the position you just laid out is wholly unscientific. There is no debate about whether human industry is responsible, it is. The idea that there is a debate to be had about projections and responsibility is a lie. Many of the specific effects have already caused damage to low laying nation's around the world as well as right here in the United States. It will get worse. It should be top priority. You are bothsidesing something that is not debatable. And yeah, it makes you a denier t...

    The American government has been controlled by the *Jesuit/Zionist-Rothschild Banking/Industrial Cabal* for a very long time. If you understand this, you will understand this video. War, Debt, and ultimately Enslavement to a New World Order is their End Game.

    To be completely fair both FDNY and NYPD have always had readily available installations right at the World Trade Center because it's always been a large, heavily populated complex
