Debt Limit Theatre

There is no way Wall Street is going to allow washington - which they basically run - to lose them the kind of money we are talking about if the govt defaults. It is all just theatre.

3 Ways Your Social Security Payments Are Already Being Cut

Don't pay Red State Bills !!

If the caller who stated that by law the Sec. of the Treasury can determine in what order and when the US Government bills are to be paid, then cut off all states that are Federal Welfare States and of course those RED STATES. I forgot they are one and the same. If that law is true; then Mr. Hartmann start a movement to E-Mail Government officials; from the WhiteHouse on down. One way to solve the unemployment problem is to require Corporations to produce 15 to 20% of there produces here; and let them average the cost across then total goods sold.

Solar Panels from China

The caller today that told about the solar panels from china for $2.00 for a 80 watt panel was mistaken in the price. The price is listed as $1-65 ti $1-70 per watt plus shiipping and handling.


Whatever you think of Reagan, the Republicans always point to him as the one who fixed our economy. But what they don't tell you is that he had a Democratic controlled Congress who was willing to work with him. At the present we have a Republican House and minority Republican Party in the Senate, who is unwilling to work with this President, on anything.

A Capital Idea Part 73: How Money Created a Whole World of Deceit

Today I plan to discuss something dreadful about the psychology of money -- namely, how it makes possible a plethora of deceitful practices, and magnifies those which might exist even without money. In short, money, the stuff that people strive to get because it can be used to buy stuff, opens a pandora's box of dreadfully destructive deceitful practices -- practices which I believe could be prevented. These are not necessary evils; they are just evils.

Wall Street's Romney: Does Washington need another W.O.R.M.?

Obama’s Environmental Philosophy

Fields are cleared, marshes drained, cities, roads and bridges built, while plants and animals are domesticated and bred, habitats transformed, forests cut over, lands irrigated, rivers dammed, landscapes grazed (voraciously, by sheep, goats and cattle), climates altered. Whole mountains are cut in half as minerals are extracted, quarries scar landscapes, waste flows into streams, rivers and oce

God Calling

Just curious. If more than one person claims that God is calling them to run for the same office, such as POTUS, does that mean the omniscient (all knowing) God can't make up His mind on who He chooses to support? After all, He's asked more than one to run. Is He weighing His options? Does He want to hear a 2, 3 or 4 person debate on the issues to convince Him who is the best candidate? Yet, if He's omniscient, wouldn't He already know who He supports by calling on just ONE, and only ONE, to run? I'm confused.

Sarah Palin's intentions

Hi Thom,

I think I have a clue to Sarah Palin's bizarre behavior and her political intentions.

She will not enter the Republican primaries. She doesn't want to expose herself in public campaigning. Her aim is to be drafted by a third, , maverick political party composed primarily of Tea Party adherents and donors.

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.
