I'm sorry but I'm having trouble finding a place to put a comment about another topic. I'm wanyting to mention Tom Friedman's Op Ed in today's NYTimes. In it he speaks of a book by Paul Gilding called The Great Disruption in which Gilding thinks the disruptions across the globe are all connected and makes many of the comments Thom Hartmann makes. But he goes a bit farther. T. Friedman thinks he cannot be ignored. Any thoughts?

I just heard on your program today, as I have heard everywhere else in the media, that the Occupy Wall Street movement has no coherent list of demands. On the contrary, the movement has posted a very coherent and well-aimed list of specific demands for legistlation and action at the following link:

http://coupmedia.org/occupy-vote.html

You can go there and vote "yes" or "no" on which proposals you would like to see become part of the official list of demands, or even suggest your own proposals.

Please share this with listeners so that we can dispell the myth that this movement is an incoherent, directionless, fly-by-night bunch of rabble rouser hippies with nothing to demand.

Get the word out ... PLEASE!

I AM NOT A PER CENT, I AM A PERSON!"Despite the destructive effects of more than five centuries of subjugation, as the Originally Free Nations and Peoples of Turtle Island, we still remember what it is to be truly free as exemplified by our ancestors. Our ancestors evolved life-ways and values that challenged European feudalism, medievalism, and lordship. Today, forces seem to be working toward neo-feudalism and neo-medievalism, with a long range plan for irreversible global domination in the name of ‘national security,’ under the unblinking eye of the surveillance state.

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.

From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
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
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
