You know, the right wingnuts wouldn't spend all that time and money to try to bring down the 99%ers if they weren't worried.

Thom, What is this story about? "Sex Drugs and rock n roll at Occupy Wall Street". used condoms and open sex everywhere??? i find this very hard to believe. http://www.ktlkam1150.com/cc-common/news/sections/newsarticle.html?feed=104668&article=9229145

Monday, October 10, 2011Sex, drugs, and unsanitary conditions common at Occupy Wall Street protestsIf one were to walk through the Wall Street protests they would find drugs being used openly, people have sex wherever they want, and unsanitary living conditions.

Stephen Moore forgets that we have wars going on now, and in fact we've really had a wartime economy since the 1960s, when the military-industrial complex developed.

At the Port Townsend Film Festival this year there was a movie called "Better This World" about two kids from Midlan TX who's small group got infiltrated by a so-called revolutionary, an FBI informant, who entrapped them during the 2008 Republican National Convention. He convinced them to build some homemade bombs, which they had no intension of using, then turned them in. One of the young men is still in prison as a terrorist! I was shocked at the level of riot police present at the convention.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pennsylvania_Mutiny_of_1783 on why the Constitution allowed the creation of a capital district.

I can't defend any particular actions of Christopher Columbus, but the reason he (rather than Leif Erikson, for example) gets credit for discovering the New World, is simply that he was responsible for making Europe aware of it, although that point itself is probably debatable.

And Gilmore makes 17...

You need to know this... Support for Donald Trump's campaign is still growing nationally, and in early primary states, but he's not just gaining support in early primary states. A new poll from Florida shows that Trump is leading Jeb by 6 percentage points - and he's leading Rubio by 16 points.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."
Van Jones, cofounder of RebuildTheDream.com and author of The Green Collar Economy
