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.

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 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 Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
