Rush to Apologize?

banking imagesBill Bradbury, a Democratic candidate for governor in Oregon, is campaigning on a proposal to move the state's money away from national banks and to local and community Oregon banks. His has a big message to big banks on Wall Street: Phooey! Others are doing the same. In New Mexico legislature Brian Egolf (D-Santa Fe) has a proposed bill, which would move $1.4 billion in state funds from Bank of America into local banks and credit unions. Egolf's proposal was inspired by the Move Your Money campaign.  Bradbury, though, is going a step further and suggesting that Oregon should do as North Dakota did nearly a hundred years ago - set up a state bank to fund both state programs and loan money to the state's small business, keeping the profits from the banking efforts in the state's coffers, thus making credit more available and taxes lower.  States competing with the Bank of America?  Sounds like a great idea to me...

In Strange news...On Monday, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin called for Emanuel to be fired for his “slur on all God’s children with cognitive and developmental disabilities” when he called Liberals F--ing retards. On Wenesday Rush Limbaugh endorsed Raum Emanual's language and said the liberal activists truly are “retards.” I'm sure we will all hear Sarah condemning Rush's slur on all God's children with cognitive and developmental disabilities. Sarah.............?...Sarah.............?

Agree about banks, need to break up all large banks and AIG. I wish our Pres would take stance like Teddy Roosevelt, but he appears to be a Puppet of the banksters since so many of his allies, Emanuel, Giethner and Summers are all Goldman Sachs agents. When will the 3rd party start? Need a new Progressive Party that the few remaining sane Republicans and many Democrats and Independents can go to break the Republicrat hold on politics.

The Trump administration is a death cult

Thom plus logo They revel in their efforts to end Obamacare and cut millions of Americans off healthcare.

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 The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."
Van Jones, cofounder of RebuildTheDream.com and author of The Green Collar Economy
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
