I applaud Jon Stewart for his political activism at a time when it seems neither the people we elected or the media have the fortitude to say the same things or expose the same distortions as done by Stewart. It speaks volumes about how many have forfeited their responsibility to bring honest debate to the issues and not demagogue or bumper sticker them in sound bites.
The issue of what has happened to 911 first responders is just such an issue that politicians cannot point the fingers of blame and have instead chosen to do absolutely nothing at all leaving many of those who worked in the days and months after 911 to deal with debilitating diseases and death while a once grateful nation forgot them. Politicians, who have been besieged with requests for help seem to have forgotten them too and there is only Jon Stewart to remind us of them?
Where is the outrage that gave birth to the tea party factions nationwide? Where is the call to action that inspires member of Congress to investigate average everyday citizens because of their religion, to do something for those who are still fighting today what happened to us nine years ago. Our priorities are so distorted that congressmen can talk just weeks after elections about forming committees but can’t pass bills that have been discussed, debated, written and re-written for months? This is today’s America.
