"The GOP"S Got Nothing!" ( the new ) "What Now Cartoon"

All I've heard from the GOP this Summer has been a load of racist crap I thought our country had out grown, I still think we are better than this, I believe the corporate controlled media is giving them the voice that they never had before, broadcasting this filth as news worthy. Last weekend the AFLCIO had a rally in LA that thousands attended, yet the whole weekend never mentioned it, but they sure let us know that "About 400" Tea Party yahoo's were sitting on the Arizona border in their Winnebago's!!!!

The mosque madness in Manhattan

It's become standard for the mainstream media to say that the Manhattan mosque became a national issue when President Obama weighed in with his opinion. This isn't true--it was in the national conversation before that, hence the reporter asking Obama his opinion at that news conference.

I'm counting on sane radio pundits to counter this insidious creep of mythmaking in the MSM.

Teachings From Silver Birch Communication

"In order to reach your inner spiritual world, we must have the means of doing it. We must have the channels through which this power can flow. Part of your psychic and spiritual unfoldmen consists in becoming more and more receptive to our influences. As your soul natures blend with your spirit co-operators, so they can transmit through you that power which can help in times of crisis, difficulty and danger. This power is hard to define because it is impalpable and intangible from the material standpoint, but it is none the less real. It is part of the force o

On "What's a Human Being"

One argument that's often used with respect to defining an embryo is a human being is the fact that it genetically human; i.e., that it has human chromosomes. The fundamental flaw with this argument is that this is true of every cell in the human body. If one follows that logic further then, if one cut off a finger, then one has committed murder, because genetically human cells were killed. Well then, if one further argues that a finger is not a complete human organism; I would argue, neither is an embryo. The Supreme Court's arguments regarding viability seems valid

Mitch mcConnell's origins

Since Mitch McConnell -- with only a slight hesitation -- is willing to take Barack Obama's word that he is a Christian, I am willling to take McConnell's word that he, too, is a Christian. I would, however, like to see McConnell's original birth certificate to verify that he is an American citizen. His accent would suggest another nationality as does his uninstructed understanding of the U.S. Constitution.

Question

Question.... I believe I've heard Thom say on his radio show, that the govenment gives tax breaks to corporations to take jobs out of the country. I have friendly watercooler type conversations at work with Limbaugh listeners and would like more information on this if possible.

Are these "tax breaks to take jobs out of the country" part of NAFTA , or some tax bill.

Is there any legislation that would change this, or would congress have to leave NAFTA or other trade agreements... Thanks

Zygotes

What also needs to be asked to these people who believe the zygote is a human being is-Can a human being or any tissue from a living human being be put into deep freeze (-80C) for prolong periods, thawed and function properly. The answer is nothing that is living (as the person talking with Thom defines) can be frozen, thawed and function. Now once the zygote becomes an embryo as Thom defines (attaches to the uterus) it can not be frozen, thawed and function. Therefore there is other major differences between a zygote and an embryo.

Human Life vs. Human Being

The thing that these anti-abortionists and anti-stem-cell-research crackpots don't get is that there's a huge difference between human life and a human being. A fertilized egg and an unfertilized egg are both human life. So is a severed finger, until the cells die. None of those are even close to a human being. And the potential to become a human being is not a human being. Frankly, these anti-abortionists etc. just have an irrational religious belief.

Thanks for taking on these bigots on your show.

Thom,

Thanks for taking on these bigots like Wheeler. They need to be exposed. We are living among them like we are living among cockroaches.

I do not like cockroaches. I'm glad you're not afraid of them.

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.
