Protectionism is here!

Thom warned us and we may be too late.

In the last week my wife has received 3 "protectionist" e-mails from the very same people who had been sending the "anti-Obama" e-mails (not of the liberal variety) for the past 2 years. None of these people are politically sophisticated and only recently got politically involved once we had a black guy in the White House. Protectionism is in vogue.

Peter Ferrara, America Civil Rights Union against Free Speech

Mr. Ferrara said twice that you - Thom Hartmann- shouldn't be allowed to say what you say about the uber rich not paying thier fair share, So much for Civil Rights in his world. A crash is absolutely the way they will consolidate even more. We hah. what a ride to wake all of us out of our stupor. Peter Ferrara I want to call a punk who is rewarded richly for propagating insanity.

Banksters did commit crimes

Just heard Thom's interview with the guy from ACRU, where Thom seemed to be promoting the meme that what the bankers did was legal, so we need to change the laws. This meme needs to be retired. While some of the egregious things they did may have been legal, there was still tons of illegality involved. Good old fashioned fraud was very wide spread.

Damnit Thom, you know better!

Ranked voting would NOT have stopped Bush from stealing Florida. It just would have made the real numbers different. In the end there is no difference between stealing 10,000 votes or 100,000.

For the record: Thom has often said the truth about this; I am only calling him on slipping. The claim that the Nader vote somehow would have turned the election in Florida is patently false, a revisionist history attempt to take advantage of people's memory. If people stop saying that the electiion was stolen people will forget.

Part 2: Why wasn’t there a bigger popular pushback on ObamaCare?

“In a similar aping of Bush-era corruption, the Obama administration served up an almost exact answer to the Armstrong Williams scandal (in which a conservative pundit was paid $240,000 via a Department of Education grant in exchange for his public promotion of George Bush’s No Child Left Behind Act [aka No Child Left a Dime]) by repeatedly citing the work of an MIT economist named

Alternatives to the current technology for generating power from nuclear energy.

A recent article in Wired magazine brought to light (so to speak) an available alternative to the problems connected to the current technology for generating electricity from nuclear energy.

Navy Ships ordered to move away from Japan - but FEMA asleep on preparedness for "little people" living on US's West Coast

The Navy is getting outta there, but not a peep out of FEMA with regard to preparedness or instruction for the West Coast of America - with nuclear contamination only two days away after a serious discharge.

The right's spin on oil drilling

I've been wondering for awhile now why no one seems to question the people on the right when they say we need to "drill baby drill" to make the US independent from foreign oil. When OPEC controls the amount of oil on the market, if the US production went up by 10,000 barrels OPEC could just cut production by 10,000 barrels. Also, and more important, what would stop the oil company from selling the oil they got from ANWR or any other location in the US to other countries, if they could make more profit then keeping it in the US?

The ball is in OUR court

I have heard much complaining that President Obama has not spoken out against what Walker and his Republican partners have done to destroy democracy, and I would like to remind people that democracy is government of the people, by the people and for the people. It is not up to our elected leaders to speak for us. (That's what Walker says he is doing.) It is up to the PEOPLE to let their will be known. It is up to the PEOPLE to get to the polls and make sure we remove the people who are not representing us and elect others who will represent us. It is up to the

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
