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.

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 The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
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."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
From Cracking the Code:
"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."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
