Jon Stewart to Sean Hannity: Your show is like the show of a guy who was hit as a child

Jon Stewart to Sean Hannity: Your show is like the show of a guy who was hit as a child | Gov & Law Constitutions and U.S. House of Representatives | Scoop.it

On his show Thursday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart lampooned Fox News personalities who defend ex-Rutger’s coach Mike Rice.

Andrew Lawrence's insight:

I was wondering when he would comment on this. I can't believe someone would defend Rice. It's inexcusable to hit players, students, kids, etc. good for Jon.

No matter what they did, you are right there is no excuse to hit players, students, children etc.

Nobody should defend Rice. There is no way that his players deserved any of that. There are a lot of teams that are great teams WITHOUT abuse included. Everybody knows that abuse is never the right thing to do. Rice has no excuse for his horrible actions.

When I first herd about this I felt terrible for the players and students being abused by the coach. Im glad this guy is being ridiculed so much because his actions are counter acting what sports are all about; teamwork, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, discipline, and being a good role model.

Andrew Lawrence's insight:

Love this. It really is astounding to realize how much we depend on and waste time on technology these days. More and more kids, including me, are watching more tv instead of going outside. It's almost sickening to think that some day kids maybe won't know what night games or ghost in the graveyard is...

Technology is changing the way we learn, but that doesn't have to be a bad thing. However, spending too much time using technology can significantly alter your ability to connect with the human world. There needs to be a balance, don't you agree?
Amanda Nandory's curator insight, March 14, 2013 8:00 AM

I think we are depending too much on technology that we aren't able to do things on paper or in our head anymore. Yes i agree Technology can be a good thing but i think that since we use it so much that its turning our brain to mush.

I agree that there needs to be a balance between technology and the human world. The article also mentioned that kids are not doing as well with critical thinking and analysis. If kids don't know something, they can look it up online. This can be good or bad, but it is hindering kids from thinking on their own.

Jon Stewart Contrasts British Gay Marriage Debate With US

Jon Stewart Contrasts British Gay Marriage Debate With US | Gov & Law Constitutions and U.S. House of Representatives | Scoop.it

We’ve all seen clips of people yelling at each other in the British parliament, using the most colorful, flowery insulting language this side of Lincoln. Yet, as last night’s Daily Show shows us, English politicians are much more capable of reasonable discussions about gay marriage than their American counterparts.

Andrew Lawrence's insight:

Loved the Harry Potter and hurricane jokes. Being technically Democratic, I love Jon Stewart. He provides the sarcastic realistic side of things. I know gay marriage is a touchy subject, but I had to post this. I laughed when the Republicans started arguing that you could marry ten people or your horse. We're talking about another human being here, not a rock. 100 points from Hufflepuff.

I loved how Jon Stewart faces hard and delicate topics with irony. I think he makes news way more interesting and easier to follow. Great scoop, I'm sure we'll see Jon's face again on this blog.
MsHaeussinger's comment, March 6, 2013 8:26 AM
Oh, Mr. Stewart, how brilliantly you insert real news into an entertaining social commentary.
Michael Chmielewski's comment, March 10, 2013 9:52 PM
It is fun to watch Jon Stewart make fun of everything, because everything he makes fun of and what he says about it is so ironic!

N. Texas Sheriff to Ignore Gun Laws He Says Violate Constitution

N. Texas Sheriff to Ignore Gun Laws He Says Violate Constitution | Gov & Law Constitutions and U.S. House of Representatives | Scoop.it
Collin County Sheriff Terry Box says he, nor his deputies, will enforce unconstitutional gun laws put in place by whom he calls misguided politicians.

Via Thomas Wentzel
Andrew Lawrence's insight:

Although the gun situation keeps spiraling out of control, Terry is right:  creating new gun laws would breach the second amendment of allowing citizens to bear arms. I believe that instead of creating laws to ban guns, the government should be more concerned with creating more thorough and difficult tests on the firearm license exam. Have an IQ test or a sanity test or something. Make it harder to get guns.
