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.

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.

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 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:
"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
