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.

Corporate-Managed Trade Deals Screw America

The New Hampshire primary is now just one day away, and differences between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton couldn’t be clearer, especially when it comes to so-called free trade.

While Secretary Clinton’s views on corporate-managed trade have changed a lot over the years, Bernie’s haven’t.

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
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
