Oh please oh please, continue with your "Some people say...." reports Thom. Please don't take the high road and tell listeners its just somethings you're making up at the end of the segment. Start every show with a few "Some people say...." issues, and let the chips fall where they may.

If for no other reason then to hear you're right wing guests tell you off for doing so, and hemming and hawing when you point out that its a well known Fox technique (or just ignore it and try to continue condemning you seriously).

Dextrosinistrously ugly. For once, I don't have to look anything up, although "right-left" ugly seems meaningless. Perhaps it refers to interpartisan bickering.

Why have so many people forgotten that "youth" is a count noun when talking about individuals? Children are youths, not youth. A good example (for word formation, but not pronunciation) is that scene from My Cousin Vinnie. Vinnie: "Two yoots." / Judge: "What is a yoot?"

Thom,

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, give us or post a list of the expenditures you spoke of today. This list of the expenditures of the military, subsidies, "Free Trade" etc. is a Great List to have handy when wanting to counter the Tea Party's concern about mis-spending, or the Republican's claim of excess spending on Social Security, Medicare, or Health Care Reform. Your list of spending, which is substantialy higher than any other single national expenditure as a budget item, is an extremely beneficial summary for "Progressives" to argue against. So please post the list of items you mentioned in your TV show today. Thank You!

Time to Rethink the War on Terror

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
