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.

GOP Blocks Equal Pay...again.

Just in time for election season, Senate Republicans blocked legislation aimed at closing the gender pay gap. For the third time since 2012, Republicans refused to allow debate on the Paycheck Fairness Act, and reminded women that the GOP doesn't believe in equal pay for equal work.

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 The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
