No Contributions for Political Fools

p { margin-bottom: 0.1in; line-height: 120%; }

Every day now I get e-mails from various parties soliciting contributions to the establishment Democratic Party. Here is my response. I suggest you consider a similar answer. Maybe they will finally listen if they hear the truth over and over again.

It's the Ecomomy, Stupid!? / The Establishment Loses/ Global Ramifications of Trump win?

Guns & typical Democratic talking points are not going to cut it. If the Democrats don't pull their heads out of their bubbles and give US some real, anti-establishment, plans against inequality we're all in real trouble.

Anyone with any sense knows Rebublicans are wholly owned by Corporate Billionaires, but Trump is an unknown -- and Anti-establisment! -- quantity.

Trump's DONNY DEAREST speech

Last night, Donald J. Trump gave his Donny Dearest speech. AMERICA!!! YOU WILL GIVE ME THE RESPECT I DESERVE!!!

Tactical response to Trump's acceptance speech

I so agree with Thom that there are independents, especially white men that will eat up the dog meat rhetoric, lies, and inaccuracies Trump spewed in his acceptance speech. My friends in Iowa, a battleground state, will eat this stuff up.

WHERE ARE THEY?

Anyone notice that not a single Donald Trump employee spoke at the national Republican convention? If he's such a great business owner and kind businessman, then why hasn't he featured any of his employees on the podium? If he takes employees from the bottom rung and elevates them up to the top positions why have they not been summoned to give testimony of this, why is only his family giving testimony of this?

Help in Washington State Primary

Hi Thom,

Thank you for doing this show.

I am a big Bernie fan, yes he lost to Hillary, but my problem now is that we are having a Priamary Election here in Washington State, there are a few Democrats running,

I just can't vote for Patty Murry because she endorced Hillary from the start, even though Bernie won by 72 %

She obviously doesn't listen to her people.

I know that you are not the Bernie Web site, I don't know how to get ahold of him.

But,.... Who would Bernie Sanders endorce?

Dumb Blondes or Drumpf Blondes?

I have noticed that both Trump daughters have yellow hair; I think that is also referred to as “blonde” in certain circles. Whether the carpet matches the drapes I do not care to know, but the hair on the head is yellow…uh, “blonde”.

Al Franken for VP?

I heard this suggest on Stephenie Miller today and thought it would be a great choice. He got the experience as a 2 time Senator. He would be great at getting under Trump's skin. He would appeal to younger voters. He also doesn't run for the Senate this year. Finally, one of the problems with Sanders and Warren is they are both are older and in terms of national needs, Clinton is also older and it is not inconceivable that if she became unable to serve do to health problems, they might also be having health problems as well.

Republican underbelly

The most popular government programs are Social Security and Medicare.

Remarkable speech at Union Convention

This week is the AFSCME international Union Convention in Las Vegas- Yesterday a Reverend from North Carolina NAACP gave one of the best speeches I've heard in my entire life. http://youtu.be/UnUEmUVWd38

Attention: Thom HARTMANN, Hillary CLINTON, Bernie SANDERS, and America!

CHANGE AND THE PROGRESSIVE CONSCIOUSNESS: WHY WE MUST WORK TOGETHER TO ACHIEVE OUR GOALS.

It is true that in terms of the laws of nature and time, that change is a constant. However in the pursuit of personal happiness, nowhere in the laws of nature is it written that one has to be content and accepting and happy about the change or perceived change. Change can be pleasant, but most of the time it is disruptive. If we do not fight against change in the wrong direction, then we are as guilty as those who are changing our direction.

The LPC: Also Known As the Little Penis Club

Over the past several years, I have become an ardent admirer of Thom Hartmann. Easily one of the smartest, most decent men in the United States of Arrogance. During that time, I have often been amused at Thom’s use of the phrase “Little Penis Club”. Though I don’t regularly use the term, it is a reference to insecure, pathetic little white men who don’t feel like men without their racism, their trucks and their guns.

Inspection- The Political Cult-fication of America

  There’s a caveat I must begin with. “Cult” isn’t necessarily bad. For the times, Jesus was the leader of what would have been considered a “cult.” That “cult” was wrongfully considered by Roman and Jewish authorities to be dangerous.
 But I do believe our two party-based system has become too cult-like in the worst ways…

How Funding the Vote, Schools & Police Could Change America

One of the most amazing things about Donald Trump as a presidential candidate is his ability to say something interesting or at least hint at something interesting when he appears to be saying absolutely nothing.
