Vote Rigging - The GOP is taking advice from Stalin

The raging debate in Washington over the debt ceiling may help to determine the short-term fate of our nation - but the battle over the long-term future of our democracy isn't being fought on Capitol Hill. Voter Suppression ID laws, cuts to early voting, long lines in heavily Democratic precincts, and new hurdles to voter registration are nothing compared to this latest vote-rigging scheme. While most of us are focused on "fiscal cliffs" and budget battles in Washington, DC, the real fight for the future of our democracy is, right now, happening in State legislatures in Wisconsin, Ohio, and Michigan.

The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Panivorously Ugly!

The Good! *Martha MacCallum* Normally in the GBU - we go after Fox So-Called News and it's assortment of talking heads for practicing phony journalism. But this morning - in what may be a first for the network - Fox host Martha MacCallum actually asked a Republican a question - and when he refused to answer - she continued to press him and wouldn't let up. Tea Party Congressman Steve King refused to address specific spending cuts that the Republican Party would support in the debt ceiling debate. MacCallum also did a great job of showing that Republicans are intent on letting America default on its debt - and don't have a plan B to deal with the debt ceiling.

Kris McBride, Academic Dean & Testing Coordinator-Garfield High School in Seattle, WA joins Thom Hartmann. Teachers in Seattle are fed up with the corporate school reform agenda - and they are standing up against standardized testing. Nearly the entire teaching faculty at Garfield High School announced they will not teach, or administer, a new standardized test for 9th graders known as the MAP - the Measures of Academic Progress.

Vets, America has a DEAL for you...WalMart!

Forget about a good job - that's a career - something like a long-term job manufacturing things, or a job with a pension or a good health insurance plan. Forget about going to college or trade school. Because Wal Mart has a deal for you! You, too, can work at Wal-Mart, where even if you do all your shopping at WalMart, your paycheck still won't cover your cost of living so you'll qualify for things like Medicaid. Isn't there a big problem with our economy and the way we treat veterans - when the best we can do is offer them a job at Wal-Mart when they come back?

The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Cherubimicalously Ugly!

The Good! *San Diego Mayor Bob Filner (D)* Filner has sent memos to zoning and code enforcement officers in San Diego - ordering them to end all code enforcement actions against medical marijuana facilities in that city. Filner is also encouraging the city council to take up the issue of formal zoning rule for medical marijuana distribution. And - he has directed the city's police chief to end all medical marijuana enforcement actions. Elected in November - Filner ran largely on a platform of decriminalizing marijuana and protecting the use of medical marijuana. It looks like Mayor Filner is one politician who understands just how out-dated and ineffective this nation's drug laws are. Let's hope he's just the first of many.

Could a deadly super bird flu be coming?

Michael Greger, MD, author "Bird Flu: A Virus of Our Own Hatching" joins Thom Hartmann. Fortunately - most of those suffering from the flu this year will fully recover from it. However - what if that wasn't the case. What if millions of Americans - and billions of people worldwide - contracted a strain of the flu - and all died? Over the better part of the past two decades - a killer straing of avian influenza has been ravaging Asia, Europe the Middle East and even Africa. While the deadly strain has mostly affected only birds up to this point - there are increasing concerns that it could become the world's next great pandemic. So - if you think that the bird flu is only a concern for poultry and wildlife - then everything you know is wrong.
