Government Use Of Asbestos May Have Declined but Veterans & Seafarers Continue to Suffer its Effects
The International Mesothelioma Conference is scheduled for March 2017. This conference will bring together the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation. The dual will co-host the International Malignant Mesothelioma Symposium at the National Institute of Health from March 27 to 29.
k. allen a Thom Hartmann blogger just posted Israel receives 3 billion dollars a year (3000 million dollars) from a broke America, has single payer health care for all its citizens..
PLUS " Israel has a comprehensive social security system that pays out a series of benefits and grants to those in financial need. The social insurance system covers every citizen of Israel and the social assistance program is a series of means tested benefits that are applicable to those aged 20 or older."
The one that goes "even though we ain't got money, we voted for Donald Trump he told us he'd make everything all white" (I may have gotten the second half wrong, but you get the idea). I can't get the song out of my head since first hearing it on Thom's show, and I can't find it anywhere on Thom's sites or on the internet after many tries. Does anyone know where I can find this song parody?
I heard a caller today say to Thom that she spoke to veterans who were expecting to use weapons at Standing Rock.
This is false. It looks like someone called and tried to make trouble for the Veterans and Standing Rock residents.
The veterans are going peacefully, with respect and without weapons to stand between the Water Protectors and the illegal, militarized and violent corporate mercenaries.
The presidential election of 2016 taught me that all elections are national elections. What happens in North Dakota affects me here in Delaware. It is important that we all start paying attention to elections in states in which we do not live.
State and local elections provide the means to control the mechanisms of democracy. State and local elections control land use rights. State and local elections control gerrymandering.
Is Trump really making the horrendous decisions we've witnessed? He has no knowledge of government, or how it works. He was elected against the corporatist partie's wishes, many of who refused to endorse him...but when it became apparent he was going to win, they were forced to come up with a simple plan. Evidence is apparent in the fact that many of his early transition team choices were kicked out, replaced by people he had no knowledge of...Ryan and his team of hit men have turned Trump into their 'useful idiot.' They may allow him some co
One theory of where AIDS came from is the partial creation of smallpox vaccine labs in Africa in the 1960's then sudden defunding of the labs by Nixon. Smallpox vaccines were made with monkey blood in Africa. The theory is that African labs trying to keep helping people after defunding, but not being fully trained, may have accidentally mutated HIV in monkey blood into AIDS.
I fear not only for our country, but also for the world.
It is said that there are winners and losers in every election, but we have never had an election like this, and at a time of such great challenge for the US and the world. There were very few winners in this election and that includes those who voted for Trump.

JON HUNTSMAN FOR SECRETARY OF STATE !
Attention: Thom Hartmann, and America:
Adolf Benito Trump should be having dinner with Ex-Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman rather than Mitt Romney! Huntsmann was US ambassador to China, speaks fluent Chinese, and China is our most challenging economic foe -- now and in the future! (Russia and Syria are more like military foes).
Romney's views on Russia and the world are simplistic at best and I'll give him a grade of "B" on foreigh policy.
It a scene that is likely to prove quite familiar during a Trump presidency, Americans woke up Tuesday to discover that the incoming president took to Twitter to expose his ignorance of or disregard for the Constitution.
TRUMP "Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag - if they do, there must be consequences - perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail ! "
From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Simons: Why we must recount by hand:
Dane County Circuit Judge Valerie Bailey-Rihn said:
In 1823, the Christian Doctrine of Discovery was quietly adopted into U.S. law by the Supreme Court in the obnoxious case, Johnson v. McIntosh. The Papal document was actually written in 1493 to help the Spanish rule over any non-white 'natives'
So the USA, which has a nasty habit of ignoring the use of religous oppression and corruption in our government since its inception at ANY level. The 'church' did not win their bid to rule the USA - but propaganda is still pushed that claims they did!
At the risk of talking more about myself than anyone else, it seems to me that the public is gradually maturing in its understanding or comprehension of "psychology". This is predictable in a sense: the discipline was developed at a certain place and time, gets spread around, altered, and so forth.
