Is America ‘Disappearing' People?

America's Lawyer Mike Papantonio, Ring of Fire Radio, joins Thom Hartmann. The War on Terror has come home. Back in 2006 - we learned that the CIA was running secret overseas prisons - or black sites - where they indefinitely detained and tortured terrorism suspects. When news first broke about these black sites - most Americans were shocked to learn that the CIA was working with some of world’s most repressive governments to run what were essentially glorified dungeons. But until just a few days ago - very few of us knew that back home - right here in the United States - one of the biggest police departments in the country had a secret dungeon of its own.

Whips, Chains & Capitalism

Millions of Americans have flocked to theaters to see the film adaptation of the wildly popular erotic novel series Fifty Shades of Grey. At first glance - the film and story seem to be about a woman who becomes filled with lust and desire for a well-off businessman. And - even the book's author says it's just about a simple - albeit very passionate - love story. But - when you take a better look at Fifty Shades of Grey - you see that it's more than just a run-of-the-mill love story. It's actually a great commentary on the role that capitalism is playing in America today. Joining me now for more on all of this is Lynn Stuart Parramore - founding editor of New Deal 2.0, contributing editor with Alternet and Reuters and author of "Whips, chains and capitalism: What ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is really about."

The Good - The Bad - and the Very Very Junkettaceously Ugly

The Bad! Rep. Sheila Butt (R-TN!) The House Majority Floor Leader is under fire today after apparently calling on Facebook for a National Association for the Advancement of White People. In response to a post about how the Council on Islamic Relations is trying to organize Muslim voters - Butt said “It’s time for a Council of Christian Relations and a NAAWP in this Country.” Butt - of course - denies that her comments were racist and says that by “NAAWP” she simply meant National Association for the Advancement of WESTERN People - which - to be honest - doesn’t sound much better. Oh - and by the way - we already have a “National Association for the Advancement of White People” in this country. It’s called the KKK.

The FCC will vote tomorrow on President Obama's proposed net-neutrality rules. The FCC is expected to adopt rules making broadband providers common carriers - just like telephone companies.
