Attack of the Middlemen

Today's scheme to fund alternative fuels with tax revenue which is supposed to fill public coffers....Hmmm

Sounds like, Give us a favorable tax rate and we will build a stadium / big box store/ corporation HQ, bank, automotive giant, etc,

Or just foot the bill outright like war, or current oil explorations.

If we pay for the stadium - will the team stay?

If we pay for the war do we get cheaper gas?

If we pay for medical care can we receive the care we paid for?

Concerning Higgins

Hey Thom,

I heard on your show today that you're concerned about the move & Higgins. I heard when Stephanie Miller moved to New York with her dogs she used a service called Pet Airways

She has two huge dogs & all they do is move pets. I know moving sucks, so just trying to help you get everyone there safely.

Have fun,


oil and electricty?

98% of our oil used is in the transportation sector. It drives me nuts when I hear them talking and fail to make the distinction between energy used in home and industry with the transportation sector. If you want to reduce oil usage installing solar panels won't do it, but energy efficient cars will, and that's where we need to concentrate our efforts. We use 25% of the world's oil and we're sitting on 2% of the world's reserves so there isn't enough oil to power our selves, it's just an oil man's dream. Brazil has moved off oil to ethanol, and now exports oil for profit.



Moving to DC

I was thrilled to learn today that Thom is moving to Washington DC, where his show will now be based. It is even more exciting because I too am moving to the Washington DC area next week! This is an amazing coincidence. My favorite progressive communicator and I are heading to the same place at the same time. Anyone else joining us??

How Stupid Has the Democratic Party Become?

Republicans haven’t taken over red states; Democrats have lost them by not running as real Democrats.

That’s my big takeaway from Alec MacGillis’ fascinating look into the biggest political mystery of our time: why poor white people in red states are not bothering to turn out to vote, leaving the field to Republicans elected by more affluent whites in those states.
