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.

First Columbia took on their drug lords, now they're taking on their billionaires...why can't we?

America’s billionaires are driving this nation’s poverty epidemic. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

As we speak, working-class Americans are getting screwed over by policies that favor the wealthy elite, and leave everyone else in the dust. As a result, more and more Americans are living in poverty.

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
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
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."
