I nominate Michael Savage as "very very ugly"

I posted video of this disturbing segment on both Democratic Underground and now Feministing. Given that Savage chose to be an apologist for teen bullies the day of the Ohio school shooting when 3 teenagers died, Savage deserves so much outrage like how Rush Limbaugh is for calling Sandra Fluke a "slut" for testifying IN FAVOR OF BIRTH CONTROL before a congress committee.

The Walker Wisconsin Example: The Country needs to hit bottom with a Republican to rally a correction beyond what’s available with today’s Democratic Party.

Long live the 99% - Vote Romney in 2012 to recruit activism and end the B.S., once and for all, in a time frame favoring the People. Send President Judas, the Pseudo Republican Blue Dog, packing!

Revised Mass Extinction Estimate: The end of birds!?!

Today’s Thermal Maximum is expected to wipe out birds by the millions. Species left and right will go extinct and populations will crash.

Are we missing the point?

Are we missing the point with the revving up of the ultra right wing? It seems that the left is rather dismissive of the organizational power and longetivity of the ultra right wing and relegates the tea party to the wingnut corner. I think that dismissing the ultra right is a mistake. Even if they are crushed in the next election, shouldn’t we continue to be vi

Freedom to vote linked with energy independence.

Gas prices go up supply limits and we vote for the person that says they will fix the problem. Or Gas prices go up supply limits and we vote for huge tax breaks and oil subsides and deregulations. Or Gas prices go up supply is high and we do not have enough refiners. Or Gas prices go up supply is limited and we drill for more oil. Or Gas prices are stable as we are

We're the ones who don't beat our children.

Thom--Recently, I heard you reiterate to a caller the need to confront the wingnuts not head-on but sideways. This is sideways. Just end the conversation with it & walk away. Or, you might say, "Identify one liberal who beats his children & we'll talk." TJP

Any idea what's going to happen to Thom's show in Los Angeles once the time change happens?

In just a few years, Thom has become a staple in LA radio to anyone with a functioning heart, brain or soul. He has inherited the mantle of Michael Jackson (not the King of Pop, but one of the legends of Southern California talk radio). The decision of what will happen to Thom's show once it moves has no doubt already been made by his station here, KTLK, but does anyone know what that decision is??

(My fear is that, since Clear Channel owns KTLK and the Randi Rhodes show, we lose Thom here on the West Coast. Hope not.)

college course dedicated to American vision 50-100years ahead and what should we be doing now or differently.

I am fascinated by your guests and topics that you are able to clarify in reference to how democracy in America is currently functioning and how it could be functioning if enough people take action locally to combat the oligarchy.

Youth are the key to changing a society. Has any University approached you in reference to enacting a course based on your shows uncovering of disturbing leadership and corporate dominance in America? Youth when informed can change the world. How can we arm them with facts and not just the fiction that they see in the news?

Meeting Thom

While this is not a blog post, I would dearly love to meet Thom. I consider Thom to be a brother. He educates, empowers, helps, and truly loves people, freedom and the American way. I have listened to Thom for 3 years now, live in Coos Bay, OR (former Portland resident for 9 years), and will be in DC this summer. I will be there for 7 days from the end of June until about July 6th. Any way of going about saying a quick "Hi" and giving him a hug? Thanks, Sam Aley

An article on how efficient the new light rail system is working out in Minnesota

One of the arguments for light rail is that it is supposed to have lower operating costs than buses.

America Is a Country - Not a Business!

America is, increasingly, no longer a country; instead, we're being run like a business, and in some cases it's literally killing us.

Take for example, the ongoing problem of foodborne illnesses like Salmonella, which infects over a million Americans every year.
