Jon Stewart's Speech to Congress

Recommended Posts

This is not- or at least should not- be a partisan issue. Powerful speech.

Yeah I had two friends post this link but then start drawing party lines and blaming one side or the other. Just MO, but if that's what you are making this about, I don't think you really understand where Stewart stands. I think somebody even asked him which party was to blame, and he just said (basically) -- it doesn't matter, this just needs to get done. Period.

And he's right.

What more proof do we need to say that we don't live in a democratic society? Who would be against this on either/any side? Should we really be surprised though? I mean is this really any worse than dropping bombs on women and children so that we can steal their resources? These are some of the worst, most disgusting human beings in the world and they are just as bad as Assad, Hussein, Kadhafi, you name it. They're doing this shit for a fucking pay day.

I will say the blame for this *still* being an issue is squarely on the shoulders of Mitch McConnell. It was going to pass in 2015 and then Mitch blocked it because he couldn't attach a rider to it. Shame on everyone for it being an issue even that long, but Mitch is largely responsible for the past three years of stalling.

Why weren't the Dems trying to use this one to win an election though? Stewart and his people lobbied Dems too. Mitch McConnell is a fucking chode to be certain but there's a reason why he kicks the Democrats ass legislatively wise. The reason is that the Democrats are controlled opposition. Did you see the Koch brothers are going to be giving money to incumbent Dems? They're owned by the same oligarchs as the Republicans.

The House passed it unanimously. Let's see what Mitch does.

lol my guess is to pass it and try to make himself look like a hero like the scum sucking leach he is.
