I believe the occupy movement will only grow and continue to work at other levels. I hope protesters who get charged with felonies will fight them, since it takes away their right to vote, and feeds some of the very issues they're fighting that target minorities and such.

On another topic..here's a thought..let's take the radical muslems and the radical islama-phobes....put them all on an island with their guns and let them fight it out...away from the more universally minded and tolerant. My personal view is that real faith, no matter what that faith may be, stands on its own, is stronger than, and has nothing to do with extreme attitudes or actions on either side.

I have a game changer idea!...how about FSTV give 15 minutes to each cadidate each night one at a time, ...that means all the candidates, and all the parties, each one with 15 minutes to tell us what they have done that quaifies them for the job, what they will do if elected, and how they will do it.

One candidate per night, great draw for viewer's! and it would assist in removing money from the election, WE the people could see, and hear each candidate speak, and then...the next round, have them answer questions from the viewers live, no notes! 15 minutes, and answers must be less than 30 seconds!... then the finale one week, before the election, have facts and statements checked for the truth on everything we've heard them say, then...we can decide who to vote for, but the big problem is having another country (Spain) count the votes in this election,this must be against the Constiution, why not go back to paper votes that are counted by the people. Why vote if you can't trust the votes being counted correctly.??

Time to Rethink the War on Terror

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.

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."

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."

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."
