A contract bewteen parties is only valid when both sides agree, when other parties are excluded from this decision and those other parties are the real owners of the property which the contract is based to use, then the contract can not be valid and is actually illegal.

Well did you ever sign a contract stating that you agree to living in a world which is polluted by companies destroying the Air which they can not own, destroying the Water which they can not hold and the land on the top crust being filled wtih poison and waste with no reguard to the real owners of Earth, the living things which dwell on it, in it and above it? I did not and I was never asked if I thought it was o.k. to pollute our world like I never even mattered since I did not have a claim to land which was originally stolen from the Native American Indians in the first place at least in America.

We the living, each own one share in Earthstock, it is non transferable, and it allows each one of us and every animal, every river to have a voice which must be respected and valued as it is our only planet and we can not leave it, yet. All companies which in the past, present and future which pollute the Earth are operating illegally and need to changed to non polluting by some one other then a bought off government from its money feed bag lobbyests.

How Can the GOP Run American Government If They Hate It?

The coal country state of West Virginia is in the middle of a special legislative session to deal with a $270 million budget shortfall, and it's setting the stage for Republicans to completely gut the state's government.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
