Thanks Thom!

I've been a fan of yours for about the last year and started my Blog, and posting many (hopefully informative) Blog entries on this site over the last few months. I've been a life long Republican/Libertarian who gradually drew away from the "Republican" way. As for the Libertarianism I saw many flaws over the years but still in my gut feel that Libertarianism has a very positive feel IF we provide safety nets for people who just don't make it in life. I've gon

Ayn Rand Received Social Security, Medicare

Ayn Rand, Hypocrite?
Legendary opponent of “welfare state” received Social Security and probably Medicare

By Patia Stephens

Critics of Social Security and Medicare frequently invoke the words and ideals of author and philosopher Ayn Rand, one of the fiercest critics of federal insurance programs. But a little-known fact is that Ayn Rand herself collected Social Security. She may also have received Medicare benefits.

Pres Obama, Politics, Citizens

President Obama is.... well, he is a great politician. Those of us that worked hard to get him elected and whom had high hopes have realized that he is more of a centrist Republican than a Democrat. Forget the so called "Republican" party, they are no Republicans. They are Global Corporatists. Setting aside the Global Corparatists' agenda to derail any progress for our country, we need to focus on the things Obama has done. He has appointed the same banksters that destroyed the American economy.

All in the Same Boat Bill

Civility and Reform:
Christina Taylor Green was 9 years old when she was killed. Congresswoman Gabby Giffords is working to recover from the wounds she received during the incident in Tucson, AZ. This year's heroes/mentors for many people include both Christina Taylor Green and Gabby Giffords.

Life is like a slot machine

I grew up in Las Vegas and although the city may have not prepared me for Harvard I think I've learned a thing or two that would make me a better president than Obama.

1) You have no friends when you're playing poker. There is no comprimise. No sharing of ideas or brainstorming. There are no get-to-know-ya parties. It's just you trying to take every cent from everyone else around the table.

2) If you look around the table and you can't determine who the "Mark" is. The Mark is you.

3) Poker is more about not playing a hand.

Check Out My Latest Radio Show! Thom Hartmann is my # 1 influence.

On this episode of Carson's Corner, Bob discusses the firing of Keith Olbermann. What was the reasoning behind the decision?

"MSNBC Dumbs down TV!" (the new) "What Now Cartoon"

Keith Olbermann was a shining light in the darkness of corporate controlled tv, I enjoyed his show, and I will miss it deeply.
This consolidation of media, is a bad thing! All media is affected, even political cartoons.

"Clean Coal" Bologna to be served at tonight's SOTU

Obama$$$ will probably speak of a very narrow, particular stage or phase in the process of mining, extracting, processing, preparing, and burning of coal$$$ in an attempt to understate the overall environmental damage caused by coal$$$. Listen for the word sequestration. BUT IT IS A LIE - THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS CLEAN COAL - NOT WITH TODAYS OR FUTURE TECHNOLOGY - IT IS A BIG LIE REPEATED OFTEN

RE: Joseph Kennedy being placed in charge of the SEC

FDR,responded to questions about why he appointed Kennedy to head the SEC. FDR is reported to have said "Well it takes a crook to catch a crook".

Secret Talks with Big Polluters

staff members for Chairman Fred Upton and Senator Jim Inhofe met in a closed-door session -- with Big Polluters -- to draft a strategy designed to handcuff the Obama administration’s efforts to address climate change, protect public healt

Another post unapproved by HP police

This is the latest post by Maserati2 to be removed by HP. I see many posts much more critical than mine that are allowed to appear. Perhaps a past comment allowed a conservative lackey to zero in on mine. Simple posts such as "F&F" are usually flagged and held for approval. Although not Right-Wing friendly, they have never used profanity or attacked an individual.

"HP": what a great idea, to offer a post for real and uninhibited political discussion! (NOT!!!)

Who OPerates Florida Indian Casinos

Right off, I'm going to say it's Whiskey Pete, a JABA/Norfolk Southern entity, then try to explain it all as quickly as possible. Pieces of information placed in the right sequence indicate that the unregulated FDIC (as Lincoln National Corporation 351140070) and unregulated JABA the Fed may be the top financiers and secret beneficiaries of Florida casinos which are operated under Indian rights of sovereignity.

Time to Rethink the War on Terror

Thom plus logo

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.
