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 Start Treating Guns Like Abortions

It's time we start regulating guns like we regulate abortions.

Because it just makes sense that we regulate these individual rights in the same way.

Because the Supreme Court, in the Heller case, concluded that there is an individual right to own firearms found in the Second Amendment - just like they ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is an individual right to have an abortion found in the Fourth Amendment.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
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 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."
