I Caught You Doing Something Right - Get a FREE!! Pigeon T-Shirt

So often we catch people doing things wrong but really the best way to motivate people and to create a positive world view that gets people active is the catch people doing something right. Thom would like you to catch someone in your family, community or life doing something right. Did your local politician legislate in favor the citizens instead of "big money?" Did your child or parent show up at the local Democratic or Green Party and make a difference? Did a local journalists do an investigative story that helped the community? We are going to choose one comment on the "I Caught You Doing Something Right" message chain and they will receive our "limited edition" Pigeon T-Shirt pictured here. Besides The Thom Hartmann staff - this is it! ONE!! In order to win - you have to be signed up for our FREE Newsletter which includes "our stack" every article and bumper music from each day. We'll Choose on Friday, June 30th. So...Tag, You're it!

While the USSR - Union of Soviet Socialist Republic --- didn't actually have COMMUNIST in their name, the Republicans like to clai that the Socialist ideas by Democratic Party members is leaning to Communism! However, the Texas History book fiasco has the Republicans wanting to remove 'democratic' from the 'democratic republic' definition of the USA! So, I guess the Republicans have their own agenda for COMMUNISM!!!

On Mother's day, knowing that my only child is now in university in Australia, a friend brought her teenage son and new puppy over to help me with my garden. Best mother's day in years! No pigeons were involved.

I found your comments on JFK's handling of the steel industry crisis very interesting. I was a kid during those times and Big Steel was right up there w/oil and the MIC, etc. Shortly after, he was murdered in Dallas. I don't buy into conspiracy theories, but the greediest human beings are the shit that rises to the top.

I voted for Obama. I have been a progressive futurist all my life. My one doubt is that BO is a rookie, a greenhorn who really knows very little about the sewer/shit stream that the worse humans swim in. They also are very powerful and stop at nothing to keep it that way. Examples: the Bush Bunch (dummies and all) and Cheneys.

I wasn't surprised by BO's speech. But, I live in Florida, and I sure am tired of the dumbest and the cretin lifeforms that are now calling the power shots. My use of expletives is deliberate. These so-called humans are lower than that.

Your awesome Thom. I too have never seen a baby pigeon. Very provocative line of thinking. Its up there with the flying spagetti monster religion. Thank you for helping shine a light on the ridiculous assumptions that Obama is anything but American born.

I was caught on camera at the Hollywood March 19th Peace Rally supporting Wisconsin workers. I had a funny idea and I got a lot of attention for it. I made little flags of "Koch Sucker Scott Walker" and stuck them in piles of horse poop at the rally. I found 3 different piles and each time I started placing my flags I was surrounded by cameras and microphones. I knew someone would post them online.

I would LOVE a Robot Pigeons shirt, My friend, Holly, actually wrote a song about Robot Pigeons. As soon as we record it we'll send it to Thom.

I'll be wearing size XL soon (I'm on Weight Watchers)

I hope my idea and action is worthy. Thanks!

My seven year old raised money for orangutan conservation. We're ridiculously proud of her for thinking of the idea, organizing it, and having the stamina to see it through all by herself. see http://tobob.com/201202/how-to-save-an-orangutan/

We so often catch our children doing something wrong...we're really enjoying this chance to catch her doing something right.

Check out what is going on in Chantily, Virginia with the Bilderberg secret meeting of the world elites. Follow them and you will find the root of all evil. Look it up and follow the citizen media of what is really going on. The Bilderberg conference.

Trickle Down Trade is how we should be referring to what Republicans and Clintonite Democrats call free trade.

Free trade means tariff-free or tariff- reduced trade where country A manufactures product A and trades with nation B for product B with a reduction or removal of tariffs.

Trickle Down Trade is giving tax credits to corporation A to move the manufacturing of product A to nation B in order to exploit cheap labor and lack of work safety in order for the wealthy to profiteer by taking advantage of the lack of tariffs intended for product B on nation B.

This translates into redistribution of wealth to only the richest, who then offshore their profits away from America and our middle class and our economy. There is no difference in the outcome whether it is tax cuts on rich incomes or tax privileges for corporations that promote foreign manufacturing of American products.

(this is a duplicate post because of fears that the last post would not get seen/sorry)

thank you Thom you are truly a freedom fighter and I am continually surprised at the quality of your knowledge of history and the quality of your arguments in the face of ignorance or lairs, I am not sure, but any way I am posting to respond to a guy on 8-2-2013 called in and asked you to dedicate one hour a week to teaching activist tools and tactics, he basically asked about strengthening the grass roots progressive movement, I am apart of a group that is doing that and more if he would like to inquire please e-mail me at gavrielinmotion@hotmail.com, (Gabriel) or he could go to the schools web page www.newmessage.org (the new message community is a religious group, but my new message community action center group is multi-faith and some are non faith based focus, but all are progressive activist) I agree we must be bold.

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 hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
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
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
