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!

Climate deniers are running out of excuses...

One-by-one, the excuses for failing to act on climate change are disappearing.

Earlier this month, China proved that it's possible to quickly and dramatically reduce carbon emissions. According to an analysis by Greenpeace, our planet's largest greenhouse gas emitter reduced coal use by about 8 percent in a single year.

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
From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
