In 2004 under the Bush administration the All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, Ca. was approached by the IRS due to an anti-war sermon. Three years later no action had been taken but the case was dropped without comment by the IRS (and a significant legal bill for the church.) This was a patent abuse of the IRS function by Bush in order to suppress views contrary to his own.

Right-winger's love of war and the ensuing profits might reexamine their understanding of their religion if they think it has any relation to the teachings of Jesus.

After watching the Frontline program and then reviewing in my mind the way President Obama appeared during the debate the thought has crossed my mind that Obama has gotten bored with being President. If you look at his history he has a tendency to loose interest in what he has been dooing and then move on to a different challenge.

A Progressive Economy Can Rebuild America!

Regardless of which presidential candidate you vote for in November, you might want to take a second look at progressive economic policies.

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 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 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
