Is a Revolution Coming?

revolution magesWellPoint VP Brad Fluegel appeared on Faux Business News to talk about the 39% rate hikes in California. Faux hosts Charles Payne and and Stu Varney were not interested with how increasing rates would affect customers and struggling families in California. Instead, Payne groaned, asking Fluegel why he didn’t “take Wall Street’s lead” and “wait for this to blow over and maybe a year from now try to hike rates." Incidents like this are waking up more and more Americans - even Tea Partiers watching Faux News - to the fact that the millionaire news TV stars and the multinational corporate empires that employ them have absolutely no interest in the plight of average working people, but instead only care about corporate profits and the fate of the rich.  We no longer even have labor news sections in our newspapers or labor reports on national newscasts.  It's enough to make one wonder if a revolution is coming...

In Strange News...A 73-year-old James Bruce of Tampa Florida man  was arrested for robbing three banks. He was unarmed, took $600 in each heist and claimed he needed the money to pay his home mortgage. He admitted robbing the bank but he called it a repayable loan.  Maybe before retirement he was a banker himself?

Trump's Latest Failure Could Kill 6 million Americans

Thom plus logo Although they haven't yet publicly acknowledged it in such stark terms, it's clear now that the Trump administration has decided pursue a herd immunity strategy to deal with the coronavirus.

Trump's new White House advisor on coronavirus, Scott Atlas, has said it on numerous occasions in multiple venues, and now our Attorney General, Bill Barr, is trying to argue that lockdowns to prevent the spread of the virus are as bad as slavery. Trying to achieve herd immunity in the United States against the coronavirus, assuming it's even possible, would involve between two and 6 million Americans dying.

"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
