Thoughts about program aired on Chicago radio 3/3/2011

. . Though I'm generally aligned with views from Thom . . a couple points made I think were a little weak or off . .

1) Thom made the analogy in his conversation about bombing Libya . . that though he had issues with many stances of former President Bush, if someone came and bombed our air fields (back then) . . . He (Thom) would become more aligned with Bush . . (( I forgot some words in his analogy, but I think the spirit of his analogy was clear enough )).

Huh? Jeb Bush

Sure, he's no FDR or Teddy Roosevelt, but isn't one Obama in the hand worth more than a third Bush.

AMERICAN PEOPLE'S LIBERTY PARTY

WE HAVE DECIDED TO DRAFT THOM HARTMANN FOR OUR PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE. WE NEED YOU TO POST COMMENTS TO ENCOURAGE HIM TO BE THE LEADER OF OUR PARTY AS HE IS ONE OF THE FEW PATRIOTS LEFT AND IS VERY VERY BRAVE TO TAKE ON THE KOCH BROS WHEN NO ONE ELSE WILL. OUR PARTY IS BASICALLY WHAT THE OLD DEMOCRATIC PARTY USED TO BE...FOR THE WORKERS. I BET DUE TO CURRENT EVENTS IN WISCONSIN AND OTHER STATES THERE ARE MANY REPUBLICANS (UNION MEMBERS) WHO HAVE REALIZED THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS A PARTY OF DICTATORS AND MONEY GRUBBERS AND DO NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE PEOPLE.

To whom it may concern

Scott Walker

Walker, is the Koch brother's, weasle A weasle is defined as, "a certain small carnivore..... "a cunning sneaking fellow." Pretty much sums up Walker"s character.

Republican lapdog?

What do you call a republican lapdog?

a Kocher spaniel

If Obama is the only choice then we have no choices.

The Democratic Party will not change while there's no pain for offering us Obama. I'll vote against him in the primaries if given the chance, and if he get's there, I'll vote against him in the general election.

I don't value any difference between him and a Republican, more than I value the opportunity to express my dissatisfaction with corporate Democrats from Clinton on.

This is not a conversation anymore, it's a datapoint that Democratic leaders can ignore or use.

Money Erodes Confidence

Here is an enlightening hypothesis by Lawrence Lessig explaining to UT Law School students how the Influence of Money Undermines Confidence in the system. It is about 20 minutes.

I agree with you that an intellectual revolution is necessary to preserve our representative democracy. It must be a movement from the roots up and it must be a movement based in truth. Can it happen in the America we see today?

Republicans and Democrats share this concern

Medicaid in most states finances nursing home patients when their money is gone. Pennsylvania nursing homes are full of patients on Medicaid, and my mother is one of them. I would bet that if you repeated this fact often enough, many Republicans with family members in nursing homes would be frightened into fighting cuts to this program. I haven't heard anyone make this a major issue. Medicaid is not for corrupt welfare moms.

My Wisconsin

I grew up in Wisconsin, in southeast Wisconsin, in a community where car manufacturing was king and unions were a force, especially the UAW, the united auto worker’s union. My father had a unique position, not only did he work at the auto factory, American Motors, he was also a city council man. Both positions he held for most of his adult life.

Triangle Shirt Waist Co Fire 100th Anv.

Monday night (in NYC) BPS played a documentary on The Triangle Shirt Waist Company Fire. This should be required watching for everyone. It detailed the attempt of the garment workers to organize in this city. Triangle's owners refused to compromise with the general strike that hit the industry. Most other manufacturers agreed to the work and wage demands and allowed their workers to unionize. Triangle refused. When they did settle, the workers got wage and hour concessions but were not allowed to unionize or have a say in working conditions.

Progressives ought to take a look at the old media and the art of the editorial letter, also known as: Letters to the Editor.

The Old Wal Mart Story

Okay, so, I'm on this website, just kicking back and having fun. All of a sudden, the old Walmart story once again rears it's UGLY head. Here is the way it went down:

The Middle Class Needs More Than Talking Points

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have been talking a lot about the middle class. But, that talk is cheap as long as their in bed with Wall Street.
