Ron Paul's principles are confused and he is not fooling anyone.

Statements to the effect of "shrinking the role of government” and "reducing the size of government" always perplexes me. What do Paul and his ilk mean by that? Clearly Paul wants to decrease the regulation that infringes on campaign donor profit. But there is no clear and direct economic benefit to the p

What is the easiest way to come home and watch Thom on my TV at night?

I have several computers, etc., but what is the best way to come home and watch Thom Hartmann at night on my TV? Do I need a device to plug into my TV, etc.?

Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) was censured by the House (333-79) just nine months ago for several ethics violations, including tax evasion. Yet Thursday, Rangel hosted a ceremony to unveil his official portrait in the Longworth House Office Building. The list of speakers at the ceremony included Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD), as well as New York Democrat senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer.

Minnie's Entity Shop

Though she had hoped for more time to crochet, iron her curtains, grow flowers and bake pie, Minnie has been convinced of the need for updating what's available in the world of corporate entities, and in some cases, going back to some of the older ways of naming things. A decision has been reached to open a small name shop for those who need meaningful, carefully coded fictitious names or corporate personhoods, for FTC purposes, of course.

Congressional Coup that no one noticed...

Completely ignored by almost all the media and demonstrating once more Democrats' complicity in the overthrow of our representative form of government is the committee for reducing deficit spending. Did anyone notice that: 1) although nationally the Republicans have a base of only about 26% of the population they are given 50% of the committee membership. 2) Republicans tapped for committee membership have all sworn to follow a specific deficit reduction policy and 3) Democrats placed on the committee represent conservatives as well as moderates, almost guaranteeing a cons

Yes!!! There is a Revolution....

Yes!!! There is a Revolution underway. There has never been one more real – or more sweeping. It is historic on a millennial scale and it is global.

More prisons may help?

I think the idea Mr. Hartmann expressed last week of having more prisons built could help in two ways. Contain the ever enlarging criminal population and create many new construction, and guard jobs. Not to mention all the ancillary jobs that follow.

Booing gay soldiers

So, according to your last guest.....the audience is not booing THAT gay soldier, they are booing ALL gay soldiers. That is not better, in case he was making an argument against them being sociopaths.

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.
