    Hi Louise, My name is Tom Dorsey. I'm a good libral, progressive democrat from Chicago. Now in Plainfield, Il. I'd would try to contact Thom directly but know he's very busy. I've been out of work for a good part of the last 3 yrs now due to the housing bubble/bust. I'm a sprinklerfitter in the constrution trades. Out of desperation, I've started a mobile media business. I'm just learning the ins-outs of it, but I think it would be a fantastic way of getting a message out. Everyone carries a mobile device these days.

  • Power Inequality Root Cause of Wealth Inequality. Trickle Down Works when it comes to Abuse of Power.

    Until we address & stop this (post Nixonian) rampant lawlessness that reared it's ugly head (again) when Reagan's controllers engineered the coup against Jimmy Carter with the Iran-Contra treason and was allowed to go into hyper drive when we tolerated Dick Cheney & his lap puppet's high crimes, the only people held accountable will be those of us Not part of the 1% apparatus.  Those in power act with impunity.
