Republican strategy

I am enamored with the strategy Thom discusses concerning spend when in power...scream deficit when not. My research has found an interesting graph to support that. I would like some more info on the origin of it.

Expected 3,000 yr duration of Current Global Warming event paints dim, VERY DIM picture

If natural phenomena can be described by a standard normal distribution, this would suggest that we are facing 1,500 years of rising temperatures followed by 1,500 years of falling temperatures.

If true, given the current wide spread occurrence of temperatures over 100 F ...well there is no fracking way we are coming out the other side of this one.

2012 Presidential Election: Choosing Most Revered American or Choosing Your Poison?

I'm going with Poison

The Federal Reserve Prepares for Default

Quote from Thomas Jefferson, 1802

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

Where are the jobs?

Ever get tired of hearing about how corporations should "Give us jobs!" To me, I feel like we Americans are on our knees begging for pennies. It is so annoying to hear all of the whimpering about how much gold the corporations have in their coffers and they are not being very nice and share.

follow the money

Our money (borrowed) by Reagan, Bush & Bush was spent in the area of defense, growing the Military Industrial Fear Complex. I don't have the supporting information though I would bet the farm that this part of our economy was the beneficary of our national debt. This information needs to be part of the discussion of what we are facing in the current debt discussion and what the priorities are in the expenditure of the treasure, work, of the people of the USA. Fear or Hope?

If we are truly a government "Of the people, By the people and For the people..."

If it is still true that we are a government of the people, by the people and for the people, then it's time the people in Washington started living like "the people." Let's see who's in this to affect positive change and who's just in it for the money. For a start, if you get elected, you will make no more than the median income of your constituency. Period. You will pay for your own transportation and gas, like your constituency. You will pay for your own healthcare, like your constituency. You will pay into Social Security, like your constituency, inst

Peaceful Protest 8-1-2011 thru 8-5-2011 @ National Mall in D.C.

Contact me via email and will let know the details... It is a day of recognition of the men and women who served and are serving in the every day work of the nation. From the vets to the Homemakers of generations past and present. Will not be a show and dance just honest good people needed to make it known that Washington needs to keep spending but at a lower rate but Washington can do better work with the money that they collect when you the good working American pays his or her taxes.

p.s. Use the protest as subject if you will.

A Nation of Law

I watched the movie "Fair Game" last weekend, and it renewed my anger that neither Bush nor Cheney, let alone Rove, were impeached or prosecuted for the crimes they committed that have plunged this nation into such distress.

Treasury must buy-back Social Sec.’s US Debt holdings at FAIR MARKET VALUE = A LOSS TO Soc Sec if Default and Yields Rise

in response to Thom's July 20, 2011, circa 4:58 comment to a caller who questioned if the Social Security Trust Fund's holding of US Treasury Bills, Bonds and Notes were safe.

Tea Party Darling Joe Walsh's 'YO MAMA WEARS COMBAT BOOTS!' moment!

Chris Matthews takes down Rep. Joe Walsh

Just in case you missed it yesterday, there was a ridiculous appearance by a Tea Party newly elected moron on Chris Matthews Show... doing what Tea Party Representatives do best... ACTING LIKE A FOOL!

ALEC Exposed

Through the corporate-funded American Legislative Exchange Council, global corporations and state politicians vote behind closed doors to try to rewrite state laws that govern your rights. These so-called "model bills" reach into almost every area of American life and often directly benefit huge corporations. Through ALEC, corporations have "a VOICE and a VOTE" on specific changes to the law that are then proposed in your state. DO YOU?

Thom Hartmann Here with an excerpt from my book “Rebooting the American Dream: 11 ways to rebuild our country.”
My radio show has a mission statement. We don’t say it on the air, as it sounds a bit pompous, but it’s the metric against which we measure our work: Saving the world, by awakening one person at a time.
