Newsletter : 9 July 2009

Dear Listener,

Thanks for being a member of The Thom Hartmann Program. There are some exciting new developments on the program. We'll have a new daily newsletter launching early next week. Throughout the week you'll receive "The Daily Stack" with all the links to stories I cover daily, upcoming station visits & events, a weekly blog, a weekly article, and you'll also get a peek at my mail with a response or rebuttal...and more. You can now listen to my daily newscast, but you won't hear the stories you normally hear on the corporate media - you'll hear The Best of the Rest of the News - you can hear it on the stream at www.thomhartmann.com or as an extra if you sign up for podcasts. In our news today you'll discover with billions being funded in the "Cap & Trade" proposal why is it that only 1% is allocated to public transportation when transportation represents 1/3 of all emissions? Learn why the Center for Biological Diversity maybe suing the Environmental Protection Agency about Polar Bears and why this is important to you and me. My new book, Threshold: The Crisis of Western Civilization , is arriving in book stores in a few weeks (and on amazon and B&N now). I'll be traveling the U.S. doing talks and signings so drop by and say Hi! I look forward to meeting you soon.

Always remember activism begins with you - Tag! You're it.

Warm Regards,

Thom

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
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
