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.

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
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."
