What a difference it makes to have a sane president!

jail imagesArmy psychiatrist Hasan accused in the Fort Hood shootings is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder in the military's legal system, making him eligible for the death penalty.  Given that he had corresponded with an Imam in Yemen, had George Bush been president we'd now be bombing Yemen and in another war.  Instead, a criminal will be prosecuted, families will get closure, and America won't further inflame the world's 1.6 billion muslims or feed the extremists among them.  What a difference it makes to have a sane president!

Attorney General Eric Holder is expected to say that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others accused in the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks will be put on criminal trial in New York. Again, what a difference it makes to have a sane administration!

To the caller just now saying that white men (like me) are the most innovative on the planet, I offer the case of Qian Xuesen - a leading rocket scientist for America until he was deported on racist grounds. Everytime our troops are in danger from a Silkworm missile .... thank the racists who deported him:

Jason drinks the Neo Con koolaid, and is a whiner. Clearly, he is unable to use critical thinking skills. Jason demonstrates how simple minds are easily manipulated and is more emotional than rational. He recites the misinformation dictated to him by those who control him,they'll give him a bone and pat him on his head while taking away his freedoms. He regurgitates Neo Con, corporate BS while accusing Thom of doing what he is doing. Jason is not bright enough to understand that our problem is not merely Republicans versus Democrats but it's Corporations versus the very people who create and sustain their wealth.

Does anyone know where the right wing Troll war room is located? Seems they have a place where they gather together and call talk shows to rant the same talking points over and over. I swear they all use the same scripts devoid of facts. I have heard this Jason freak many times on different shows over the last several years.

What a laugh: Obama is a sane president? Thanks for the chuckle Thom Hartmann and a reminder this site is a monumental waste of my time. Carry on with your self indulgent garbage while Obama takes us into a deeper and interminable conflict with Afghanistan, advances a fantasy known as clean coal, builds untold nuclear without wisdom, conducts covert war on innocents - no doubt your little darling will be safe and sound while the poor die on your behalf. Or more TARP and FISA giveaways, rendition and torture, and naming more corporate insiders to insure we the people are oppressed. Apparently being a moron runs in the family.

How our republic could die in the age of Trump - in a stunning parallel to the fall of Rome

Thom plus logo The American republic could die, just like Rome. Wavering for some time on the verge of becoming a complete oligarchy, America is on the verge of flipping from a democratic republic to a strongman or autocratic form of government, something that's happened to dozens of democracies in the past few decades, but never before here.
