You already know what makes Stephanie "tick." You're very perceptiive. I really WOULD be telling tales out of school. Just be content that they really would just reinforce what you already know...

I'm sorry, DDay. (More than once I've mentioned things on this blog which I typed before I could stop myself... "diarrhea" fingers, I guess. LOL)

I have a question. Is not corn syrup better for you than surcrose? Is it not high fructose corn syrup the culprit? Is it not the bonding of the dextrose and sucrose molecules in high fructose corn syrup a occurence that does not exist in nature? I have not had chemistry in 46 years, so I may have forgot something (lol).

Our nation is a disaster, a total disaster. The above article is from one of my favorite writers.

Most of you are aware that I am 70 years old. At 70 I should be more idealistic but as I observe our failed nation I am both realistic and pessismistic. I await the self-implosion of our fascist-Nazi America. My retirement years are not very enjoyable because the hatred, corruption, and lies are endless in our nation that is wallowing in the abyss of hell.

I wish to thank you for your comments that seem to understand my plight as an American. I consider myself a patriotic American but I can rub people against the grain at times, probably more often than not.

Cheney has received the "Keeper of the Flame Award." Whenever I hear rhe word flame in politics, I think of the eternal flame in hell. I do not wish for anyone to be the eternal keeper of the flame in hell but the lusting for human blood in the killing of God's children is one way to be the eternal keeper of the flame in hell.

Whether it is in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq or even in the U.S., as we’ve seen in recent years, war takes its heaviest toll on the poorest. It is a profound mistake to believe that military force is a solid foundation for peace.

People, I OPPOSE WAR!!! War creates more problems than they resolve problems. WAR IS OUTMODED!!! Only mature persons can understanding what I am saying. If wars resolve problems, why do we still have wars???

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 - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

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
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:
"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
