Gee whiz!? I can't find the newsconference video about General Motors, which will be a topic on today's show, on-line at CSPAN.org!? Merely, a message box on CSPAN.org indicates "System Mainenance". So, I performed a random experiment and 'clicked on a total of fifteen' video links. The site was up and running, and I did fifteen clicks, and found one blank. I noted a percentage of fifteen per cent, blank. Overall Results: Higher, in real terms, than one out of sixteen important news conferences, or congressional hearings, etc. is withheld at the random time of the experiment. I am not admitting to any error factor, at this time. Of course clicking stamina, and computer speeds, will vary, as it is with the earthly seasons, which of course are relative to our orbit, third planet from the sun!? (p.s. I feel frustrated....and lacking the relevant facts!!)

Thom needs to look again at the history of the Gramm Leach Bliley bill. He said the bill passed 54-44 and Clinton could have vetoed had he wanted. However, that was the initial bill. The house's corresponding bill had so many differences a committee was formed to hash them out and the final compromise bill passed a veto proof 90-8 (not that Clinton would have vetoed) It's interesting to examine the 8 votes against, most notably Dorgan and Feingold. They knew back then this bill was bad. Why isn't Obama listening to them instead of the people who were involved in passing this legislation?

There was a woman on the show today discussing her book dealing with racism in America. What was the name of the book? I know it had the word "whiteness" in the title.

Was it?:

Witnessing Whiteness: First steps toward an Anti-Racist Practice and Culture
by Shelly Tochluk

I'm not sure but this sounds like the one... but we might have to listen to the show recording to get it right....

'Epic of Gilgamesh': How Mad King Trump angered the gods

Thom plus logo In the 4,000-year-old "Epic of Gilgamesh," the arrogant eponymous king killed Humbaba, the giant guardian of the forest so that he could cut down the cedar stands in what is now northern Iraq to build his great city of Uruk. Gilgamesh's people then diverted the Euphrates River to irrigate fields of barley.

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."

From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
