He ment what he said but he said it wrong? ABC news said tonight that the 47% included people who were retired and people earning under 50,000 dollars a year. Mitt refered to the 47% as slackers. His character is showing and he can't take it back.

I've been waiting for a moment like this. The Koch Bros, Rove and all the big donors have been bragging endlessly about Citizens United and their ability to buy the Presidency. I'm thrilled Romney spoke out like such a jerk. About costing him the Presidency - hmm. There are enough people who dislike a man of color in the White House so much, they might still vote for Romney or not vote at all. Some will write in Ron Paul. The "swing voters" may finally see Romney as he really is, and vote for Obama. There are still more tapes and videos out there, so as those become available, we'll see how deep he's dug himself. I personally hope it's SIX FEET UNDER.

Mr Rommney has offended some of his contributors also. Now that Corporations are people, the 47% must include some of the 1%.

The GE's of the U.S. who are reported to not pay taxes, and feel they are entiteled (subsidies) must fit this "fact".

This "candidate" continues to show just how out of touch he is with the reality of millions of people in this country. As brrrk stated, "If there is a God..."

Folks need to remember something - - Dubya got in =twice=, and people =knew= what a destructive dork he was! Besides, if enough money is spent to make it -seem- like a close or close-ish race, people will be less likely to question the 'electonic coup' .. =again=!!

((Why in the hell Congress hasn't "investigated" and then =indicted= the makers and users of the 'election-fraud machines' is completely beyond me!))

These are not gaffes ,these are his true beliefs and that is the saddest thing of all ! But I tell you one thing ,he comes right out and say,s what,s on his mind ,it might not be what we all want to hear but remember nobody does anything wrong given there model of the world !

The politics of fear and entitlement and separation theology are playing itself out for us all to see these differences between the rich and poor have been going on since the beginning of time,but now with the information available and instant communication it's just a little bit more visible and visibility is another word for the truth and now at this stage in the game the truth is the most important tool we have.

There is no more fairness in the market place anymore ,only domination and a systematic elimination of competition and minimising opportunity and controlling of the flow ,and the growth of wealth.

The republican party,s main game is controll ,controlling government,s public policy and government program's around the world to further ensure that the masses of the people remain regulated ,controled and subservient .

They see class status as a function of individual effort ,some have made it good so they assume that anybody can,this view is simplistic and naive .It assumes everybody has equal opportunity but the powerful strive and contrive to hold on to their money and their power and to increase it.

Namaste

The whole idea behind Citizens United was to allow the Rich to increase “their living off the government.”

I don’t have the numbers in front of me but I don’t think government disbursements for unemployment exceed government’s $16 Trillion payments to already rich Wall St bankers over the same time period.

And “if it were not but for” the government subsidies to our largest corporations you wouldn’t witness some of the uber high salaries we are seeing amongst the 1%! And for Christ sake what’s Immelt’s GE and Wall St’s Geithner doing in the Administration if the goal of the rich isn’t to live off the government?! Don’t the rich benefit disproportionately by the public services the government provides the people they employ? Like education and public transportation?

Although we must bear in mind that the conservative mind will more strongly believe his lies the more they are disproved with facts. Being the eternal optimist that I am, I firmly believe he will be defeated in November. What I worry about is that while Obama may well win his 2nd term, that the House will remain in the hands of the GOP and Tea Party and will continue to obstruct any progress for the next 4 years. I think we will gain back some democratic seats there and pray we retain or increase democratic majority in the Senate. I would really like to be surprised come November and find that the democrats have taken back the House.

Until he started offending people like Bill Kristol and some of the other conservatives, he could have recovered. Now...I don't think so.

Who Should an Economy Serve?

The top one percent own half of all the world's assets. In stark contrast, the bottom fifty percent of the world owns less than one percent. According to the 2014 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse, global inequality has surged since the 2008 financial collapse. The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
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 Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
