I'm Thinking About Becoming A Vegetarian

This has been on my mind for a long time now. I have made a lot of changes in my life over the las 10-15 years now. I look at the benefits of a simpler way of life and I seem to be gravitating towards that lifestyle more and more.

What practical advice do you folks have that can help me out along the way towards eliminating the bad stuff from my diet? I'm having a hard time making the critical changes.

I feel like crap after I eat most of my meals. I would like that feeling to go away.

Billy Corgan

I love Thom Hartmann's conversations with great minds segments. I think Billy Corgan's interview with Alex Jones would fit right in with that hight standard criteria.

It's an hour long. So my recommendation is to have a "barley pop" and take it all in.

"Wisdom of the Crowds" is actually what led my to this site. The wisdom of the crowd is such a powerful tool. Hell! Even my fantasy football website has a "Wisdom of the Crowd's" application on it!

Off the air in Spokane, WA.???

Dear Thom, It appears that you and Ed Schultz have been taken off the air here in the Spokane, WA.

The BLUE Pill

"You take the BLUE pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the RED pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes." - Morpheus from The Matrix

My question is, "Why would ANYONE want to take the BLUE pill?" Does anyone disagree with the concept of "Live and Learn"?

The Conspiracy Theory Of Everything

This is the "string theory" of conspiracies.

The overriding theme of todays conspiracy theories have to do with the advancement of technology.

It goes a little something like this...

"Real" technology is FAR MORE ADVANCED than what "we" think it is. It's actually 30 to 50 years in advance. That explains how "right on cue" technology is incrementally rolled out year after year. The common man's experience is that I'm going to hold off on buying a computer, because a year from now... it'll be obsolete.

i like the truth



supreme problem

Not only does everyone undertake the risk of poor health by virtue of living but no other service/product cost threatens the very livelihood and solvency of citizens in such a dramatic and/or catastrophic manner (the amount of broccoli or exercise required for well-being is not prohibitive). Moreover, the cost of emergency insurance processing compared to participation on the insurance pool seems, to me, to be a burden to both industry and individual that Congress should seek to avoid.

A poem and opinion.

Others, too, share my foreboding – a sense that our habits, our unconcern, may signal a horrific ending to the human species.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
