If this wasn't true why does Mitt Romney get away with voting in MA when he didn't reside their. He went on National TV and admitted it so why isn't he arrested on a Felony count?

The authorities know that big corporations have batteries of attorneys that would jump into action should any of their top echelon be cited for a felony, unless that person is dispensible to the corporation. They also know the corporations are their gravy trains, so it's a hands-off deal. The losers: we, the people. We suffered financially and psychologically for their crimes, but the fines that were imposed will never be seen by us.

And, pray, how have they been improving it while they were stealing us blind? Off-shoring these jobs and their profits. Do you really think they are the least bit interested in creating jobs here in the U.S.? They have no loyalty to any nation; only to profit.

That's simple; "Rich people don't pay taxes and don't go to jail"--at least in today's America!

It's a crime to be poor...

Despite the fact that debtors prisons have been outlawed for more than a century, it's still effectively a crime to be poor in our country. According to a stunning new report called “The Poor Get Prison,” the Justice System is being used as a weapon against the poor in municipalities all over our nation.

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."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
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
