Thom Hartmann's Blog - Feb 14th 2008

This morning I had a debate with Carrie Lukas, Vice President of Policy and Economics with the Independant Women's Forum, about their "Take Back the Date" college campus campaign to "rescue romance from the radical feminists and their hook-up culture." I countered that the "hook up" culture is nothing new...Ben Franklin talked about it. Further, the 60's free love generation hurt women more than helped them. Carrie insists that Valentine's Day has become known as V-Day due to the presentation of the "crude" play "The Vagina Monologues." I pointed out that this is a play to make people aware of violence against women. I further asked Carrie if she supports sex education in the schools...Carrie says it's up to parents to control what kids learn and where they learn it.

Thom Hartmann - Feb 13th 2008

This morning I challenged David Horowitz about the removal of the President from William and Mary College by the political right...the very campus Thomas Jeffereson attended. I asked him if the "political correctness right" has turned into a brown shirt movement? David blamed the left for the existence of the Christian Right...claiming there wasn't a Christian Right until Roe v.Wade became law. I politely reminded him that there's always been a Christian Right...they used to be called the Ku Klux Klan. ..and before that it was the Puritans hanging women as witches in Massachusetts in the 1600s!

When American Presidents Protect Foreign Governments...

If a blockbuster new report from Newsweek is any indication - a Donald Trump presidency would be one giant conflict of interest.

The problems stem from Trump's massive business empire - the Trump Organization.
