Hey, Thom, maybe ol' Mitty doesn't want to release his tax returns is because it could be used as evidence of VOTER FRAUD. Did he pay state taxes in Mass? If not, then that's definitive proof.

Interesting point you bring up, Kevinbg. What state is Romney supposed to be from for purposes of the election (since presidential electors can't vote for both a Pres. and VP from their own state)? It's like trying to figure what state the Simpsons live in.

Someone please inform Mr Nugent, that yes the our fore fathers did indeed try to negotiate with the British PARLIMENT and King when the brought together the first Continental Congress. Also can someone please ask him if he knows who our current VP is? Because from his comments it sounds like he thinks Hillary Clinton is the VP.

Talk about useless idiots.

Thom's joke about Iran donating to Karl Rove so they can get illegal weapons is what Al Franken calls kidding on the square. You tell it like a joke, but you really mean it.

Your caller was correct Thom. The right in Arizona did indeed put the crosshairs on their targets and took photos. And it WAS over the pale, or whatever you called it. I saw them all. Google it.

Why New Hampshire Outcome is Bad for the TPP

Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump won big last night, but the real loser wasn’t the Republican establishment or Hillary Clinton: it was the Trans-Pacific Partnership and everything it represents.

At this point, it’s almost a cliché to draw comparisons between the Trump and Sanders campaigns.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
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
