Bowling for Columbine was right - it's about the guns and the culture in the U.S.

Also the continuous cutting back of funding for mental health services.

Please don't put limiting or interpretative qualifiers behind "YES" and "NO" without adding "NONE OF THE ABOVE" There's not much about basic "YES" and "NO" that most of us don't understand. Qualifiers create gaps in the YES/NO universe.

This a.m. I wrote a comment on my Facebook stating this same comment, though different wording. Very sad that our culture seems to be changing.

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 The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
