    So, Jon is ranting about McConnell some more. And correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the band playing Saria's Song at the start of this clip?

    Glad he turned his ire on the right people this time.

    My only real problem is I wish everyone who doesn't have a super strong case for the american people could get this activism. Like in america there are thousands who are dying because they don't have healthcare or money, and there isn't any activist pounding the pavement to save them.

    Its not on John Stewart of course, but it kind of bugs me how certain groups in america get special attention "we must help them" while everyday americans suffer and die because they don't have a good enough story beyond "got fucked by america."

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    In his Congressional testimony Jon does mention no one should have to choose between living and having a place to live, but then goes on to emphasize the 9/11 first responders most of all.

    A lot of the people being helped by this funding are suffering because they helped pick up the pieces in the days after the worst terrorist attack in our nation's history.

    And the government lied to them on the spot about the danger their long term health was in.

    I've worked with people likely killed by post 9/11 illness.

    I've worked with people still currently dealing with it.

    I have to wonder if my father or one of my friends is going to call one day to say they are the next guy out of about 250 to get a one in a million cancer or blood illness.

    I'm not saying they don't deserve healthcare, they totally do, but again so do millions of other american who didn't respond to an american tragedy, they are just part of the great growing american tragedy of our shitty healthcare system. Who will advocate for them with late night appearences and congressional hearings?

    I get what you're saying preacher but this is different. Everyone should be taken care of, but that's not the world we live in. At the very least we can take care of those that risked everything and responded. Much like how we'really supposed to take care of vets. Everyone should have the services but vets are provided it because of what they had to endure.

    This has a very "all lives matter" feel to it. We all agree that healthcare in America is bullshit. But these are people who are first responders and came together during a major attack on our country to try and rescue people and save what property they could. They are suffering and they damn well should be taken care of.

    Yes, fix the healthcare system, but in the meantime these people are suffering and that bullshit can be fixed.

    Well, the House Ways and Means committee held a hearing on Medicare For All last week. There was plenty of healthcare discussion in 2017 when ACA repeal was on the table, including an impassioned monologue from late night host Jimmy Kimmel. The entire Democratic field is arguing over whether we should have universal single payer health care immediately or over the next five years. Activists like Ady Barkin continue to make sure health care is a top priority for the party. This idea that like, Jon Stewart isn’t giving voice to the voiceless in need of health care is ridiculous. It’s an issue that has plenty of advocates. The 9/11 responders don’t, they’re a small group of people with specialized needs and large financial burdens who can’t afford to wait. Them having someone famous in their corner, who incidentally did argue that nobody deserves to die or go bankrupt for lack of healthcare, doesn’t take away from anyone else. If anything, this corner of the issue reminds people about the broader fight.

    I think the thing is that this is an issue that hits close to home for Stewart.

    It's like a guy who is talking about how bullshit it is that his family had to chip in to buy his cousin who is deployed in Iraq good body armor and then someone goes "Yeah well the entire military industrial complex in the US is bullshit"

    And it's like, ok, they're not wrong but maybe not the best time to try and shift the discussion to that if that makes sense?

    I haven't watched Last Week Tonight yet, but if this is referring to trash left at the summit, it's because your body is literally dying every second you spend, and every single extra bit of weight makes it more likely that you will die.

    If this is about trash left at base camp or something, it's because humans are earth's largest parasite.

    Rich people (who don't even do the hard work of climbing) dying on Everest gets the same reaction from me as hearing about rich people who get mauled by lions or elephants they're "hunting."

    Well last week tonight highlights a problem with this in that two countries let you have access to the slope, and one is strict and one is not. And the one that's not uses the tourism to boost its economy which does good things for the local populace sadly also while risking their lives so middle managers at a forbes 500 company can #squad goals

    There was a book I read about Everest in maybe the late 90s about a particularly bad storm on Everest and why people die up there and it is amazing to read about. Into thin air I think? Obviously it has only gotten worth since the book came out but even then there were people being dragged up the mountain by sherpas.

    I’m pretty sure the trash up there includes frozen corpses too.

    Yes, that was Into Thin Air. There was also a documentary on Everest shot at the same time as the events in the book (by pure coincidence.)

    There is a landmark near the summit of a climber who died in a small cave wearing highlighter green climbing boots who is nicknamed Green Boots. He is one of over 200 corpses left on the mountain.

    It does. In fact corpses are sometimes used as guideposts by the sherpas and experienced climbers to find their way up the mountain in less-than-ideal conditions.
