The GOP leadership can change its rhetoric on immigration but they can't change the bigotry the resides within a lot of their voters (much of which was cultivated by the GOP!)

I hope some day to have the opportunity to clarify the misconception about the wrong naming of Latin Americans referred as "Latino" in the USA. Most of us feel insulted with this "mote" however, we understand the ignorance behind it but resent it highly, including these so called "Latinos" in politics that cannot even understand it or even explain it. For me it is beyond belief that some of our "Latino" people can support the GOP under any circumstances, including black people who apparently do not know their own history and if they do they ignore it for their own convenience. I recommend the film Harvest of Empire or the book by Juan Gonzalez, it will help many understand a little bit but not everything. During this last election, the GOP leaders have insulted us openly to the core, I take it personal and despise them all just as they despise us!

Virgil Good had a great idea with immigration...hault distribution of green cards til unemployment is below 5%

That seems reasonble...right?

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.

"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."

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."
