In support of labor

Saturday my wife and I will be marching in support of worker rights. I do not belong to a union. I have never been a member of a union. My father was a union member. I remember him explaining " collective bargaining not compulsory arbitration" to me even before I fully understood what it meant. Because of his decent, union wage, I was able to attend one of the finest public universities in the country. I owe what I have been able to achieve in life to what unions have done for average working families in this country.

Progressive Radio not available in New York Metro area

Progressive Radio is basically unavailable in the New York Metropolitan area.. I didn't even know there was such a thing as a radio talk show that wasn't radical right wing. It wasn't until my wife bought a Saturn with an XM radio that I found out that there was a radio station telling the truth about what is happening to our country. Before finding this wonderful radio staion I also though that Nancy Pelosi was the devil incarnate because of what I was hearing on the Sean Hennity show.

MONSANTO COZY WITH OBAMA/VILSACK WHITE HOUSE, GMO'S EVERYWHERE ARE THREATENING OUR (ORGANIC) FOODS

Thom, I have tried so many times to call into your show but it seems if you actually work 2 or 3 jobs like I do, I never have the time to wait. I have been an anti-GMO activist for the last 25 years and have a lot of anger and fear with recent GMO crop approvals: bio-corn, which will end up polluting the corn we eat (like Starlink corn did), sugar beets, and ESPECIALLY GMO alfalfa. I heard you had a food supply expert on and got excited when you asked her about Monsanto but she just brushed it off.

www.defendwisconsin.org to support the Wisconsin Protestors

This is the site that was "accidentaly" censored by the Capital Building's IT administrators. It lists local business supporters, volunteer requests, supply requests, etc... You can purchase groceries online and have them delivered to the Capital Building from Capital Market. Capital Market is listed on the site as a supporter (see links below).

Corporatocracy with a "K"

The Koch Bros. are the most dominant and/or most conspicuous Corporatist's.

defund then destroy

First you defund and hire incompetents "heck of a job Brownie". Then you decry the incompetency of the government and the need to replace with private (for profit) companies. Your supporters are rewarded with contracts and continue to fund your campaignes. That is whey the Government Civil Service was started, to combat the favortism system.

Thank Goodness for the MP3 STREAM!!!!

I work at a major university on the West Coast as an I.T. person. Most of my workday I'm in a subterranean office with no windows and of course no ability to receive any of the local radio stations, much less the one where Thom Hartmann is carried. The only way for me to listen to Progressive Talk Radio is to stream it to my Zaurus smart phone which ONLY uses standards.

Stealth Candidates ;Walker,Obama

Many in Wisconsin are mad because Gov Walker became a radical anti labor Governor ,he didn't campaign on this.Thom keeps repeating how people need to get involved in the Democratic party to get real progressives in the primaries and elected.

need help for cable requests in SE Mich

Hi everyone, I am new here and hope I am not starting off in the wrong direction using this to post my request. I live in South East MI, in Redford just outside of Detroit. Our cable company is Brighthouse who services my suburb and a few others near where my husband and I live. Last week I sent them and email asking them to add Free Speech TV and Link TV to their lineup. I was totally surprised to get a telephone call a couple of days ago telling me that I am one more vote, thus one vote closer to them adding this programming. On their web page they say

Rising Gas prices NOT caused by Middle East Unrest

Speculative Trading on Goldman Sachs Commodities Index wildly distorts prices set by physical supply and demand.

There is NO need for development of Oil Shale or Tar Sand Oil.

civil marriage privleges r absurd.

We shouldn't be working to legitimize gay marriage but, rather, delegitimize all marriage!! Privleges 4 married couples violate equal protection clause...

Daniel Webster Quote please wake up U.S.

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.
