The initial Obama stimulus was far too small and too much of it was directed to tax cuts. It is time for citizens to stand proud as tax payers and recognize that our taxes built the commons. It is the commons and significant investment intheir upgrade that will once again grow the middle class.

Here in the UK the public bailed out the banks to a tune of 395 billion pounds,according to the independent newspaper last week 90% of that money went to the richest 10 % of the population and just 10% of that stimulus (the public's money) went to the least well off.

The people have no idea what is going on because there is no transparency and that means no truth ,we are being played like a fiddle. .the UK has been in official recession since 2008 and austerity is not working but the power,s that be have decided that this is the road to go down.As in America we are a wash with money ,money is not the problem fairness is and the thought that there is not enough to go around.

On CNN Saturday, Sept. 1, 2012, for the Financial news, a financial expert (I don't recall which person) said that with Ryan's plan, that the U. S. will experience almost immediately--- austerity just like Greece. Ryan scares me.

Also one of the financial experts said that cuts should not be made until unemployment is at 6%. That it will just get worse, and that we need to feed our poor. Get people working.

So long as the money bailouts the People and NOT the banksters and corporations, I'm all for it. Let's help people not loose their homes and students with their loans first and foremost with that bailout money. If not, we are going to have a lost generation chained to so much debt that they'll be in economic slavery. Time to kill apathy. Spread empathy and compassion. Peace.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."
Van Jones, cofounder of RebuildTheDream.com and author of The Green Collar Economy
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
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
