We Are All in This Together, Economically

A Capital Idea Part 2: We Are All in This Together, Economically

"Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money." ~ Cree Indian Proverb. (From Thom Hartmann via David Walker)

Papers Please!

Wouldn't that put a notch in Arpaio's belt to arrest the President when he visits Arizona? I'm just guessing Arpaio is a birther. I just looked at Jan Brewers website and see a nomination form for the Golden Rule Citizen the first paragraph reads -- "As a Golden Rule state, I am pleased to present a program that positively recognizes those who “treat others the way you would like to be treated” and who make a difference in Arizona." I don't think she would be eligible! OOPS!

Was I (am I) disappeared?

Comcast changed me from Norton to McAfee and now I can't see any of my old posts or get beyond what may be a false HTTP security warning (both Yes and No = No).

Core Competency

I want to think a little about the concept of small government versus big government. Some people speak of wanting to keep the government small. Others insist that a small government is a weak government. Does it have to be an either/or proposition? I don't think so. I think it is possible to have a strong, small government, just as it is possible to have a large, weak government.

Arizona immigration law

Before this new law was even signed a case came up that shows what might become commonplace. I heard on the Michelangelo Signorile show about an American Citizen truck driver who was arrested at a truck stop and taken in handcuffs because he did not have his birth certificate with him. His commercial driver’s license which is vetted by the Department of Transportation as well as the state was not an adequate form of ID.

Your Papers Please!

Thom, you make me think...

Mr. Hartman,

Your show and your viewpoints mean a lot to me. I always learn something and I appreciate so much what you are doing and what you stand for.

The right wing fundie nutjobs are so obsessed over gay marriages that they seem to gloss over some really wierd hanky panky that comes right out of the bible. We expose this in the video.

Selfish People Suck

When will the progressives in this country start calling a spade a spade?...selfish people suck! No political party affiliation required. No financial status limitation. No religous, racial, or sexual orientation bias. Selfish patrons of our democracy are sucking the life out of our society. No other explanation exists for what is happening. Why not use the label to campaign for democratic principles.

Earth's credit card has been maxed out!

If Earth's resources were a credit card, we have already maxed out our entire allocation for this year. The think thank Global Footprint Network announced that August 19th was “Earth Overshoot Day,” meaning that all the resources we use after that day exceed what our planet can produce in a single year.
