"Junk Food" not actually cheaper

THE “fact” that junk food is cheaper than real food has become a reflexive part of how liberals explain why so many Americans are overweight, particularly those with lower incomes. I frequently read confident statements like, “when a bag of chips is cheaper than a head of broccoli ...” or “it’s more affordable to feed a family of four at McDonald’s than to cook a healthy meal for them at home.”

California nurse's comments about strike and lockout

Thom or whomever:

I say the following as a former union steward and generally a supporter of worker's and union rights. However, I was somewhat appalled by a recent exchange between Thom and a guest on the radio show two days ago. She was a nurse and head of a Californian nurse's organization that had participated in a one day strike of her hospital and several other hospitals in the Bay Area. The nurse and Thom discussed the fact that after a one-day walk out by several thousand nurses from these hospitals that, the next day, the hospitals locked them out.

How to fix the country and get people working (and there's nothing the Republicans can say about it).

Texas and other states are suffering from a deadly drought. I propose a WPA-like program where desalinising plants can be built in the gulf and a series of pipelines be built to bring the water up to the affected states. It will require our steel mills to hire to produce the pipelines.. Construction contractors will have to hire to build structures and even the infrastructure. The auto industry will have an accelerated demand for its products. Farmers will have arable fields and will be able to supply the world again. Towns will spring u

Who does fight for the USA?

The mythology refuses to die. Just last week, two well-educated and well-known writer acquaintances of mine remarked in passing on the "fact" that those who serve in the U.S. military typically have no other career options. America's soldiers, they said, were poor and black.

Mr. Hartmann's apparent hatred of Wal-Mart could be unfounded

The average household income of a Wal-Mart shopper is less than $35,000. If Wal-Mart replaced all their Chinese manufactured products with American made ones, how would the average Wal-Mart shopper live with an easy 100% INCREASE in the cost of most of their purchases? In many cases it could be much higher than that. If Wal-Mart doubled the salaries of all their employees it would also cause a dramatic effect upwards on the retail prices.

Democrats and their habit of using dead people to confiscate taxpayer money.

Two of the most loyal constituencies of the Democrats running Washington are bureaucrats and dead people. This story helps us understand why:

Thom Hartmann Bumper Sticker

Sometimes our minds must be locked together but you sure can say it a heck of a lot better than I can.

C;mon Thom

Today he says if you challenge Obama you had better be showing up. Sorry I'm to busy. Yet I can still rip this serial liar. Thea worst kinds of lies. The ones that made very wealthy people even wealthier. He lies about clean coal technology, safe offshore drilling, why we should be in Afghanistan, and even tells us Health Insurance companies provide a valuable service. Shameful.

We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we're working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
