Hello, Thom!
Concerning bioethics, I would like to suggest that you interview Lori B Andrews, author of The Clone Age. She is a paternity lawyer who deals with a lot of invitro cases, as well as cases which concerning the copyrighting of genetic codes. In her book, she outlines how invitro fertilization has been controlled by the wealthy, right wing anglo-saxons, while receiving subsidies to pay for related birth defects and "Frankenstein" science.

I suggested on Face Book , that the Teabagger movement should go for broke on the gimmicks. Sarah Palin should wear a cape and tights, along with her acolytes, and they could act like superheros, with the battle cry being "Teabaggers Assemble", or "Look, a Liberal...Tag 'em and bag 'em!"

As far as human rights, we need to demand that Siegelman be set free, and this should be put to the teabaggers to prove his guilt.

Also, in regards to human rights, we now have missionairies who are being held on bogus charges in a Haiti prison. We should demand US intervention and call for their immediate release. The parents of the children involved, made claims that they willingly offered their children to the missionairies, yet the Haitian government is holding them on human trafficking charges. We should stop all support to Haiti, pending release of the missionairies.

"We have always known that self-interest was bad morals; we now know that it is bad economics." ~President Franklin D. Roosevelt

In regards to Terri Carlson...Is she hot?

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

The problem with her method is that there is no guarantee that anyone will have insurance for long, under our current system which requires us to pay what the insurance companies tell us to, without oversight.

Time to Rethink the War on Terror

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
