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

It's spelled "Seamus", Tim.

We now have Senator Man-on-Dog vs. Governor Dog-on-Car.

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

Economists Demand Universal Health Care

It’s time for universal healthcare in America.

More than 100 economic professors from across our country have signed on to a letter, calling for Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin and that state’s legislature to enact universal healthcare in the Green Mountain State.

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 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."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
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
