Just joined to tell Tom I'm going to call him "Tom Oreilly" or "Bill Hartmann" from now on.
Has anyone thought of nationalizing the oil industry here in the US? I think it is a very good idea for several reasons. For one, we would get Wall Street out of our back pockets. Two, it would give us control of the amounts being drilled, refined, and distributed. Three, it would reduce foriegn dependence on oil. And it would enhance national security by reducing big moneys strangle hold on our government.
what to invite you to progressives united in Texas". on face book you see a familar face sir if you do lol.
I have been listening to Thom Hartmann 3-5 times a week since he was on Air America and I am astounded by what he said today (3/22/12). I am NOT being paid by anyone to post this, nor do I ever listen to FOX. Thom said today racism is only racism if it discriminates and suppresses a race of people. Look at 400 years of slavery he said. Where are these slaves at today? How are blacks being tangibly suppressed in our society in a way that anyone else is not? Are there any laws that say black people don't have the same rights as anyone else?&
I first heard the story of the boy set on fire on Ed's show this a.m. It was all over the right wing websites a couple of weeks ago.
The story is that two black high school kids tried to immolate a 13 year old class mate in Kansas City. The attack was reported as being racially motivated. The police were looking for the perpatrators. (Luckily the victim was not horribly injured). See http://www.kmbc.com/r/30572405/detail.html
Thom, you said Nancy Grace/ HLN hasn't mentioned anything about this case... I watch HLN every day starting with Vinnie Politan earlier in the day - following Jane Velez Mitchell, Nancy Grace and Dr. Drew - and this case was covered continuously a week before it came out in other news media programs, CNN, MSNBC, etc. as info.
This killing of a child by a grown man, IS NOT A BLACK AND WHITE ISSUE... THIS IS A 99% ISSUE. I wish I could have attended the hoodie march to demand fairness for Trayvon Martin... I am so angry that this murder was almost swept under the proverbial carpet.
In this day and age, some conservative white folk are still trying to take the law into their own hands, vigilantly style.
The pitfalls of anecdotal evidence mean anything to anybody?!
Oh well, can out-inform the State Run Media when it comes to disseminating misinformation to the Public.
"Come As You Are" is a friendly welcome to the town of Aberdeen, Washington. It was also the most dangerous blow to the system the "system" had ever seen.
Human beings have communicated through music since the "dawn of man". In Africa, it was the beating of drums from one tribe to another. It is the common link that connects us all. It always has... until now.

When we decide that we all really want to get along with each other and create a plan that works for all human beings for a better future, then the conversation should begin with education. Let's slow down on the teaching of addiction that runs our economy. Lets slow down on the teaching for the inslavement to larg corperations. The fact that basic psychology is not taught in elementery is confusing. We have such an oppertunity to evolve yet we scream at each other like ungrateful children.
