Thom is speaking in NYC - Thom Hartmann on When Corporations became People

The U.S. Supreme Court, in a recent 5-4 decision, ruled that corporations have the same rights as citizens. Thom Hartmann, the country's #1 progressive radio host and author of over 20 books, traces the history of corporate personhood in this presentation "Unequal Protection". Hartmann considers that ruling to be wrong. The first amendment guarantees FREE SPEECH for people, not corporations. But the ruling for Citizen's United by the Supreme Court has opened the flood-gates for corporate money in political campaigns.

The Inflation Calculator

What cost $5.00 in 1973 would cost $23.88 in 2009.

Also, if you were to buy exactly the same products in 2009 and 1973,
they would cost you $5.00 and $0.98 respectively.

Do you want to do another calculation?

I had a sale date of Nov 9, 2009. Found a company that specializes in making the trustee company verify that they have followed all of the legal procedures. This strategy has kept my family and I in our house. The average customer can remain up to 40 months in their home depending on the violations found in their trust sale documents. Everyone should know about it. When the house is sold the customer gets their monthly payment back. I can get their website's info. All I have now is the email in my cell phone. For info people can email to contact@dontmoveoutyet.info. They have given us the ability to save up money and move when more convenient for us.

In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
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
