Positive Ideas:

Re: Rev. Peterson, I believe it's his name. This religious fanatic's words can sadden any woman, mainly a mother. Seems to be this person does not have in mind that his mother, if he ever had one, is a woman. I would suggest he reads the history behind Mother's Day, that may bring some light to his mind and heart.

Re: USA in the 21st Century. It is hard for me to realize the lack of leaders in the political spectrum. We are between the "wall and the sword" for although it is known that the Establishment and the State Department decide the foreign policies (meaning wars and coup d'etats) President Obama is the only choice between the two for he is the less bad between the two. With all the problems that need solution in the USA, seems to be politicians have nothing to do but come up with bad ideas to do away with the little good we have.

The Democrats have not realized that the Republican party has been acting following Machiavelli's ideals, for apparently they have not read "The Prince."

I am part of the 99% so are the military forces used against us. Our Supreme Court is pathetic, we cannot afford to have another Republican to nominate more right radicals to control and corrupt the political system.

Mr. Hartmann, I am with you in your intelligent thinking, too bad we don't have enough minds like yours. Ivonne Garcia, Tampa, FL

More than 1 million people told President Obama that he must stop Shell Oil’s risky Arctic Ocean drilling scheme to no avail.

Call President Obama at (202) 456-1111.

The paltry 3% who thinks we aren't currently controlled, are either delusional, extremely positive thinkers, or right wingers.

Did Carrier Fleece Both Trump & America?

Donald Trump took a victory lap in Indianapolis yesterday afternoon, where he and Vice President elect Mike Pence officially announced a deal to keep 800 Carrier jobs in Indiana.

That's 200 fewer jobs than the 1,000 jobs that Trump initially said the deal would save, but that's kind of besides the point.

From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
