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.

I can't get enough Thom Hartmann and Stephanie Miller. Bill Press is an embarrassment

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.

Did Trump Commit Treason?

Thom plus logo News reports increasingly are suggesting that Donald Trump has committed treason in making a promise to a foreign leader. The question is, who is the foreign leader and what was the promise?

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
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 Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
