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

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
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."

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
