This is probably not as funny as one might hope from Jon Stewart, because it deals with why veterans benefits are lagging so far behind.

Part one deals with information you may not know about the mess the has Veterans waiting for nearly a year for medical care from the VA. Part Two, is about a mix of political talking points on Gay Marriage, presented in Jon's expected satirical views.

Within the limited humor there, Jon did make some excellent points on this tragic state if affairs. There should and must be a way to do what's right for these veterans, no excuse! Thx Kit.
You obviously have better luck than I with posting his shows, I most definitely will not ever give it a 2dn try after that censorship by C2!

And some VA locations are far worse than others. If you have a vet in your life hurting do to how the VA is operating, please write to your Senators, their Senators and the Senators of whatever state the VA facility is in giving the problem (if any) and ask for their intervention--most senators have staff members who are very skilled with this type of problem now.
Thanks for JS--he is wonderful, per usual, Kit!

We sure are not breaking that sad American tradition.

I would love to know who sells this stupid software to the government and some businesses. It is sold to them for criminal amounts of money and without proper linking up to the source of info to be processed. Maybe they should get a few hackers to work it up for them.----TY Kit

Noted. Thanks, Kit. I was so glad to see Jon Stewart give this issue some serious time. Most of us have no idea this is taking place, or why. The fact that these 2 systems are incompatible is a travesty.....almost as if it were purposely done. Absolutely disgraceful!
