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!

Here's What's the Matter with Kansas…

The verdict is in, and it's time for conservatives to face the cold hard facts.

Right-wing trickle-down Reaganomics doesn't work.

It doesn't work internationally, it doesn't work nationally, and it doesn't work at the state level.

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 Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
