"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
Thom Hartmann: Well, Bill O’Reilly says that if the Montana sex ed program is passed, that 2nd graders in Montana are not going to be able to discuss, nor anybody for that matter, going to be able to discuss Jeffrey Dahmer because he was a gay cannibal. Oh my god we can’t have that!
Thom Hartmann: Well the class war is on full bore as Warren Buffet points out and his class is winning. Should the Paris Hilton Tax, the Rich Brat Tax be brought back? It’s dead this year. Right now if any wealthy person dies their heirs receive all of the cash free of taxes.
Thom Hartmann: You know, when I was, just to very quickly get back to this topic of psychological variations, let’s call them that. And ADHD, I started writing my books on ADHD in part because my son was going through this crisis and then I saw in it myself, and in part because 15 years before that I had been the executive director of the New England Salem Children’s Village and I’d seen it in all of our kids, most of the parents of the kids that we had and in fact I wrote in 19, what was the year, 1979?
Thom Hartmann: Well it’s been alleged that BP is behind letting the Lockerbie bomber out of jail and sending him back to Libya. We know that they basically have nuked the Gulf of Mexico. What else are they up to? There’s a report from a TV station, KLAS TV 8 in Las Vegas that, the last wild horse round up, BLM's last wild horse round up, was the bloodiest operation in history and that the BLM proceeded with this round up in violation of advice from a federal judge. Why?
Thom Hartmann: And greetings my friends, patriots, lovers of democracy, truth and justice, believers in peace, freedom and the American Way. Thom Hartmann here with you. In our program today in the 2nd hour of our program William Yeatman, an energy policy analyst with the Competitive Enterprise Institute is gonna come on, we’re gonna be talking about all that global warming that’s falling in Washington DC. He’ll be followed by Bill McKibben with 350.org on the same topic. In our third hour, Carrie Lukas is dropping by with the Independent Women's Forum.
Thom Hartmann: So given how the Supreme Court has turned our government over to corporations, should progressives, and we’re seeing apparently some evidence of that in the way that the Obama administration is rapidly backtracking on things like raising taxes on wealthy individuals and on the banksters, should progressives perhaps even join the far right militia movement in pushing back against any sort of government intrusion into our lives because it will simply become corporate intrusion at some point which may be even more destructive.
Thom Hartmann: And greetings my friends, patriots, lovers of democracy, truth and justice, believers in peace, freedom and the American Way. Thom Hartmann here with you. Our quote for the day from justice William J. Brennan: “If the right to privacy means anything it’s the right of the individual, married or single, to be free from unwarranted government intrusion.” Our first hour guest Dr. Yaron Brook will certainly agree with that. We’ll have him on in just a moment.
