As viewers, we turned to Stewart when democracy was losing the plot. We charged him with the numinous task of separating the real from the unreal, the empty rhetoric from the suffering it caused.
Hungary is the epicenter of a new wave of migration hitting Europe. In 2011, about 7,000 migrants arrived in Hungary. Now the country is experiencing as many as 3,000 per day.
Jon Stewart reminded us that while democracy (and life) is funny, it can also be intermittently devastating, and leave the pausing complex thinkers eating the tyranny of inanities left by the panting race of power-obsessed double-dealers.
My significant other and I launched into a spirited debate, early this morning about the privilege of voting, with me arguing my position that it does make a difference, while she countered that it does not, noting, nothing changes of late, regardless of the multitudes of promises made.
The focus should instead be on the set of criteria that, if met, qualifies an individual for asylum, regardless of one's label. We can start by underscoring humanized commonalities between all groups - migrants and refugees are all people in search of a better life.
President Trump? Sounds like a nightmare. Millions of undocumented immigrants will be forcibly deported, tearing apart families and causing untold pain and suffering.
We asked millennials who besides Trump has been vocal on the issue? Who's been gaining the most traction with voters? And, who do millennials hope to hear from on this issue?

I honestly don't know if Donald Trump will win the Republican nomination. But he's not just show. He's offering something real, something very valuable to his party's electorate that can't be laughed off or dismissed. Expect him to be around for a while.
Asian Americans are the fastest growing group in the United States today. Their history in the U.S. is deep-rooted, and spans five centuries. But it's a history that many people don't know that much about.
Greetings from behind the Tinseltown curtain. I just finished watching my favorite new reality show, the evening news. Every night, on every twenty-...
We didn't constantly see signs expressing bigotry at Gore, Kerry, or Dean rallies. And that's the difference. When the tea party talks about taking their country back, it's about more than politics alone.
