State Senate recall election in WI

After listening to Shelly Moore, the Democratic candidate for Wisconsin State Senate District 10 on Thom's show this afternoon, I went to her website and donated $25.00. I think she's a great candidate, well spoken and knows the issues. I would encourage others to donate to her. Ms. Moore is definitely the underdog in this Senate race. Her republican opponent has held the seat for years and needs to go.

The website is:

Teresa Harper

Aiken County Democratic Party (South Carolina)

who is responsible?

My husband and I were talking about how the "public" could be educated as to how we got where we are and why they should not support the idoits who are yelling the loudest. We were wondering if Thom or one of his brilliant followers could come up with a simpe bullet point presentation from > NAFTA, CAFTA, WTO, 1999- X amount of budget surplus as Clinton prepares to leave office > 2000 Election stolen> 9/11 as excuse for illegal wars> how deregulation in banking created the mess we are in and how it still hasn't been fixed etc, etc

28th Amendment, the umbrella issue of the "coup d'etat" upon our U.S. government

1st, "Unequal Protection" is a real page-turner. Compliments to Thom Hartmann and his excellent research staff.

Question? Please comment on the bare bones Amendment below:

Prisoners for Profit

Yes, believe it or not! For profit prisons, for profit schools. Who else but the future oriented, forward thinking U.S. could so speedily recognize and anticipate industry’s needs? You need cheap labor? Hire the incarcerated. Not enough of them? Law enforcement alert! Round up any suspicious, profiled person who can’t instantly produce a genuine American birth certificate and lock ‘em up. Suspected pot smoker? Hey, five years. It just makes good business sense.

The CIA Goes Green!

Yes, indeed, fellow Americans.

Solar powered drones! Now your very own CIA can carry out its extra-legal assassinations with far less pollution. Doesn’t that make you proud to be an American?

Too late to start at $0.00?

How about all the countries get together and agree to cancel all debts? LOL, I know, I couldn't say it with a straight face either!!!

I want to be a precinct committeeperson but...

I just discovered progressive talk radio about a month and a half ago. Thank goodness for smartphones and apps because I would have to listen to righty talk to hear political news and try and filter out the truth from the lies. Now I listen everyday and am getting real excited about the prospect of becoming a committeeperson. The only issue that we have is the fact that my representative Mike Conaway ( I may not agree with him on all policies but at least he is not a Tea Bagger and is one of the few level headed Republicans.

On Iowa Govenors veto

greetings from waterloo Iowa,another day ,another tax tantrum.according to yesterdays hartman headlines govenor terry braindead brantstad vetoed the state budget bill because it did not allow his provision for corperate tax breaks(AKA jobs bill). However at a town hall event (which I personally attended),he unveiled that his taxbreak incentive to create jobs would be funded by a tax increace on the gamming industy which to a large extent funds our public schools system along with a number of other scocial programs as well.

Empower the Democratic Party

Thom's approach of bringing in more progressives to Congress via ousting the "Dims" in the primaries as the rich right have done with Republican reps is also expressed in this Guardian article:


Perhaps with all the hoopla about the debt crisis you missed this:

My recent note to the White House (after the debt ceiling deal -- but prior to the market crash)

I’m sure that the WH is wondering why so many people are upset with the debt celing deal given that we are avoiding a potential global economic disaster.
