Environmental Photography Rant

I looked over the photographs posted for the Battle of the Talk Show Hosts tonight, and in my humble opinion, this photographer appears to be a rank amateur. As an award-winning historical photographer, I've cut my teeth on this type of photography, and have four simple tips to improve many environmental (candid) photographs.

1. If the subject is standing, frame the picture as a vertical shot. Such will produce a tighter picture with less wasteful background.

Thank you, Mr. Maher

Maybe it's been said before. Maybe it's been said many times before -- perhaps by our own Mr. Hartmann -- and I just don't read enough or watch enough TV so I've been missing it.

How the Occupy Wall Street Movement Can Succeed

Dear Mr Ronald Reagan and the Mob

When we were fighting to stop a landfill from coming to our town I read that dear Mr Reagan made a deal with someone in the organized crime circuit, no not Wallstreet or Congress, a deal was made to trade Americas Labor force & unions for Americas trash.

Romney said something last night that I hope the President heard

Thom, several years ago ‘2009' I gave a speech on the political environment.

Now my worst fears are coming true, for I was hoping that I would be wrong.

I have started to refine my wish list. I hope the 99'ers do the same.

I want healthcare for all.

Simple enough? Well, although complex, the healthcare system is in total chaos.

It all stems from healthcare being imbedded with Insurance regulation. This needs to end in order for healthcare to be afordable to all, thus quashing diseases and deadly germs from spreading.

The fight goes on


There is ONLY ONE WAY to save our country from the present fall into the abyss.

Second Solar company with 1.2 billion in taxpayer guaranteed loans in financial trouble

As failed solar panel manufacturer Solyndra rides through the investigative ringer in Congress, revelations of another politically-connected company that received what appears to be a less-than-virtuous $1.2 billion loan guarantee are surfacing.

The company, SunPower, received its $1.2 billion loan guarantee in September, immediately before the program’s deadline.

Bernie Sanders Could be the Next FDR

Tuesday night, I appeared on the Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to talk about Elizabeth Warren, the rise of progressives within the Democratic Party, and what this means for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.

At one point in our discussion, the conversation turned to whether Bernie represents the closest thing to an Elizabeth Warren candidacy.
