Hey Bro: Posted because responses to several recent stories have served as a painful reminder that videos/messages like these can always use a signal boost. Just do yourself a favor, and avoid the comments section on YouTube.

In which a comment bugged us enough to reblog it

echothrougheternity:

I’ve been sitting here for 10 minutes thinking about this video and it’s message and I’m not sure I agree with her. I know, I know, I am the black sheep and must be an awful human being. She took a letter, from a viewer (arguably) directed at her leadership and turned it into an attack on children. This man was not calling a child fat, nor telling his child that fat is an acceptable insult. Rather, he was insulting a grown woman who’s chosen profession puts her in the spotlight. It really isn’t even insulting. Again, I know, “fat is a cruel word and etc etc etc.” Listen, America has become weak and pathetic. This is a nation where Homosexuality is a choice and being fat is a disease. BULLSHIT. If you’re fat, go get on a treadmill and eat less. I was fat. I got on a treadmill and ate less. Yes, I know, “it’s so hard.” Well maybe this is the price you pay to be on camera. Stop turning this around to some bullying problem in America. When I was in school people got the shit kicked out of them. There were fights every day. I was jumped 3 times during my youth. Now kids whine because someone called them fat? Grow a pair. Get your ass on a treadmill or shut the hell up. Stop video recording fights and insults, stop showing private emails insulting you. end effin rant.

You watched that video and sat there for ten minutes and got this rant out of it? You should go watch it again. It was not a rant about insulting people. It was a rant about treating people with respect. Is that so hard? Sure, people have to work hard, but you know what, you don’t have to criticize or insult them or their decisions on the way down. Really, is that so hard?

I have always made it so that every woman feels, how should I say, special.
Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi • Embattled by multiple charges of sex with underage prostitutes (the girls were of legal consenting age, but prostitutes must be over eighteen by Italian law), the leader defended his way with women, insisting he’s always treated them with respect and “the greatest attention,” which might somewhat be the problem. Berlusconi faces charges carrying a maximum sentence of fifteen years in prison.  source (viafollow)

Jon Stewart Dedicates Entire Show to 9/11 First Responders Bill

In case you missed it, Jon Stewart spent the entirety of his final show of 2010 on the Zadroga health care bill for 9/11 first responders. In this clip, he holds a panel discussion with four actual 9/11 first responders.

Hit the link for the rest of the episode, including an extended and uncensored cut of Jon’s interview with Mike Huckabee.

Jon Stewart is a classy human being and he’s really giving it to the news networks ignoring this major issue. At least someone gives a crap.
