Limousine Conservatives at it Again....

wealthy man imagesRepublican Sen. Jim DeMint has used the attempted attack on a airplane bound for Detroit to go after working-class Americans. He told Fox News' Chris Wallace on Sunday, "We have to outthink the terrorists and when we formed the airport security system, we realized we could not use collective bargaining and unionization because of that need to be flexible. Yet, that appears to be the top priority now of the administration."  In other words, Limousine Conservative and multi-millionaire Senator DeMint is telling us that working class Americans can't be trusted to keep our nation safe, particularly if they have the right and power to bargain for better wages and working conditions.  And the Republican Party wonders why Americans don't trust them.

Jim DeMint should be challenged by the union members of the fire, police and all other first responders to emergencies.

I just started reading "A God Who Hates" by Wafa Sultan. (It's a pretty quick read at 244 pages.) It is a window into the world of Islam, as viewed by a Muslim woman. A real eye opener as to what Arab Muslims living in the US and other "western" counties really think & say to their fellow muslims about the US and the west.
A recommended read.

Humans appear to define things in polarities; hate/love, black/white, left/right, ad infinitum. My question, then, and not limited to Islam, isn't any creator deity capable of love also, by definition, capable of hate?

Democratic Presidents and serious candidates have been pretty centered the last 30 years or so. They get corporate backing. It'll be this way until the corporate money is removed from campaigns.

Ever get the feeling that the Democratic party is filled with a pack of wolves dressed as a herd of sheep?

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:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
