How Big Ag Buys Off Scientists...

Patty Lovera, Food & Water Watch joins Thom Hartmann. Peer-reviewed research is the gold standard of the scientific community - but when it comes to research into the murky world of animal drugs - it's Big Ag that calls the shots. That's the conclusion of a shocking new report by Food and Water Watch - which has found that "To secure favorable scientific reviews, industry groups play an enormous role in the production of scientific literature authoring journal articles, funding academic research and also serving as editors, sponsors or directors of scientific journals where much of their research is published.” In other words - Big Ag basically owns the scientists who review its products.

Should Jeb Bush go to jail for voter fraud?

Neil McCabe, Townhall.com / The Washington Mercury vs. Thom Hartmann. Jeb Bush might want to start thinking about trading in the white pillars of the White House for the cold steel bars of a jail cell. That's because - as the New York Times notes - "In a 2009 voter-registration application, obtained from the Miami-Dade County Elections Department, Mr. Bush marked Hispanic in the field labeled 'race/ethnicity.’" That's right - Jeb Bush - a very white guy from a very white family claimed that he was Hispanic. Lying on a voter registration form is a felony with up to 5 years in jail as the penalty. So - if Republicans are so serious about combatting voter fraud - shouldn't they be calling on Jeb Bush to be sent to the big house?

Corporations outspend taxpayers in Congress...

You may be surprised to learn that we spend about $2 billion dollars a year on our dysfunctional Congress. However, it's even more surprising to learn that corporate lobbyists spend even more to buy off our federal lawmakers.
