With the budget being a pertinent issue, I'd like to hear Ravi Batra's take on it as well as what he thinks about the current situation of the economy. Been awhile since I heard Dr. Batra on the show. (Hint hint)

There will be tsunami depression in the United States of Mortal Sin. The reason for this tsunami depression is that the fascist-Nazi American corporations and the fascist-Nazi American rich in our caste system will never permit an increase in taxes to lower our deficits. They will never permit the return of American jobs to the Fatherland. With ninety percent of Americans bankrupt the deficit problem will no longer be a problem. Enslavement and homeless Americans will slowly die off and a new set of immigrants will enter the United States of Mortal Sin and these new immigrants will work for less than minimum wages. American dictatorial powers will be in the hands of the fascist-Nazi American corporations and the fascist-Nazi American rich.

WITH THE CALLING OUT OF THE NATIONAL GUARD IN WISCONSIN AND PROBABLY MANY OTHER STATES WE WILL BE WITNESSING THE RELIVING OF KENT STATE AND AMERICANS KILLING AMERICANS.

THE UNITED STATES OF MORTAL SIN IS OUR NAME AND SINNING IS OUR GAME.

My wife has heard that the newly elected politicians are sleeping in their offices as opposed to renting an apartment in Washington, D.C. These are the freeloading Tea Baggers who talk about cuts in helping average Americans. If these free loaders paid rent for their sleeping in the offices, they should pay the going rental rates for using their offices as an apartment.

Bad dog!

... and if you're going to use the pot: 1) don't have it in the car when you're driving, and 2) if you are with/have a pit-bull (or any other doggie), don't store your stash in a sock that can easily be confused with a chew toy!

I just heard the Democrats in Wisconsin are not showing up, thereby preventing a quorum, so they can't vote (for now) on taking away the public employees' right to have a union. This maneuver didn't work in Texas when the Republicans redistricted in the middle of the decade, but it's a nice gesture.

Will America Recover from the Rightwing Billionaire's War Against Us?

Thom plus logo This morning on CNN a physician in Texas talked about having 10 young people with COVID-19 who needed immediate hospitalization and only having three beds left. He had to decide who is going to get treatment and who was going to be turned away from the hospital.
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:
"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 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
