Brilliant Thom --- all day long --
and you not even feeling well ---
**** Take First People's Nation's Medicine:
White people's name: "Pleurisy Root" tincture **************

Then, for laugh therapy and social change,
plan a best-selling reality show:
America agrees to a compromise with the
Internationals who hold Her hostage;
we will let the CEOs set the working wage and standard
acceptable benefits, etc. provided they each agree to
live for one year by the wage that they set for others.

The results, needless to say,
are hilarious! See it on Free Speech TV!

-- and a quick thank you for playing
Rep. Walsh's Words --

most moving Words I have heard
a Legislator Speak.....

I am from Washington -- I will call her.

Civility has gone down because lawfulness has gone up. Extreme conformism comes from dangerous times, when people that don't dress exactly right or talk in the right dialect are automatically suspected of being criminals (those dagbern hoodlums!).

Thom, you know why the Republican Caucus is heated in debate? Because of Mitt's dog Shamus. Shamus Santorumed the Romney's read windshield. And actually, Shamus didn't run away, Shamus was given away, and 20 plus odd years later, the spirit of Shamus is running against Mitt

Prison corps like to hold "cheap to keep" prisoners - young male drug offenders and immigrants. They profit big on them but you know who else does- Phone companies and Western Union drain the pocketbooks of frantic prisoner families

Did Carrier Fleece Both Trump & America?

Donald Trump took a victory lap in Indianapolis yesterday afternoon, where he and Vice President elect Mike Pence officially announced a deal to keep 800 Carrier jobs in Indiana.

That's 200 fewer jobs than the 1,000 jobs that Trump initially said the deal would save, but that's kind of besides the point.

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
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."
