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 other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.

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."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
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."
