The Supreme Court "took the easy way out," and this is outrageous. Privacy is a fundamental right, guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Please protest this...just another step in a shift toward fascism and tyranny.

Please, also complain to KPFK-FM (in Los Angeles) re removal of most of Mr. Hartmann's show this week, during the station pledge-drive. And, replacing it with distasteful hucksterism.

How Stupid Has the Democratic Party Become?

Republicans haven’t taken over red states; Democrats have lost them by not running as real Democrats.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
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
