What climate change? It is God's revenge for taxing the rich and attempting to provide health care for the poor, elderly and disabled. I wonder why it is only striking RED states?

It is sad. But, there are lots of people in the red states that believe just that. As long as we allow the republican party to make god in their image this will continue.

Bye the way I saw on free speech tv that there ia a book that Paul Ryan requires his staffers to read but, I didn't get the name of the book or the author's name. can someone help me.

God revenge, LOL.. I recognise the only reason we would use this wording is because the conservatives like to claim god as their own..

Revenge for taxing the rich; I realized todays conservatives that vote against their best interests (taxing the super wealthy), reminds me of how people worshiped the pharaoh's.. I believe, it was believed that the pharaoh's lived after death, but the average person did not.. I wonder how they controlled the masses in this case? Probably no wonder the new religuion (christianity) took over because the promises were targeted at the average person..

So what's with the Massachusetts Democrats voting to get rid of collective bargaining. It just goes to show that just because a politicain runs as a democrat doesn't make them one. We must go beyond titles and check our representatives. Ask them their policies and then demand that they follow through with their promises.

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
