Economical Terrorism

Dear Thom,

A RATIONAL or an IRRATIONAL society???

And the United States? Perhaps the most irrational society ever. Maybe you can add to my list, one that I posted before, back in June. This list has even more relevance today as we begin another year.

· A rational society would rebel when its government serves only the interests of the rich and powerful.

· A rational society would legalize prostitution and drugs with strict control on both.

ENFORCE ANTI-TRUST LAWS: Monopolies are Anti-Consumer.

The Administration’s argument for allowing Monopolies to persist based upon their ability to - in theory - offer lower prices as a result of economies of scale is incredibly flawed. First off, it’s basically saying we are working for the People by concentrating wealth. Secondly, inherent in such an excuse is the logical that you can forget about relief from higher wages.

"As States Take on Citizens United, Lawrence Lessig Offers Bold Plan to Get Money Out of Politics" ... from Democracy Now!

Professor Lawrence Lessig of Harvard Law School was a guest on Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman Wednesday 1/4/12. The interview included discussion of Lessig's new book "Republic Lost : How Money Corrupts Congress And A Plan To Stop It". A lot of his points agreed with Thom Hartmann's views, until Lessig mentioned he felt a Constitutional Convention was necessary to fix our election financing mess ... sounds like he would be a good guest on Thom's show.

Cult of Ignorance

Thom was discussing the definition of "cults" on his show today and I tried to call in, but couldn't stay on hold any longer and hung up. A woman called who had been a member of the Mormon church and really did a good job of outlining what a cult is. I would like to possibly define what a cult isn't. The reason is that the Buddhist organization to which I belong has been accused in the past of being a cult, so I and many of our members are a little sensitive to this word and I will attempt to create some understanding.

More fiber/acre than cotton and it's a longer, stronger, and all around higher quality fiber which also gives it more useful recycle cycles. More oil/acre than corn and the oil (at the high end) retails @ $30.00/qt as a dietary suplement (perfect blend of omega 3,6 and 12) More protein/acre than soy and it's a complete protein with all 12 amino acids in the proper proportions compared with soy's 6 and uptake inhibitors that reduce soy further.

Wrong Turn Romney

Today The Chicago Tribune has an Op-Ed on Obama....

.....and his hometown rag is not being nice—citing first & foremost how with the National Defense Authorization Act he did everything that he had attacked his Republican opponents for doing. A George Washington University Professor is quoted as saying that Obama has eclipsed Nixon. His presidency is ruthlessly examined.

How Can the GOP Run American Government If They Hate It?

The coal country state of West Virginia is in the middle of a special legislative session to deal with a $270 million budget shortfall, and it's setting the stage for Republicans to completely gut the state's government.

It's the same playbook we've seen the right-wing carry out in Wisconsin, in Kansas, in Michigan, and in Ohio.
