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?

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
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."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
