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.

Bernanke doesn’t get off totally scot-free here.

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 Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
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
