More on the 'cookie' metaphor . . .

The CEO/bankster does NOT eat the 499 cookies, he *hoards* them, adding them to his already 'too-much-to-be-used' stash and brags about to his peers about how many he now has.

If corporations are people, doesn't the 13th amendment prohibit them from being anyone's property?

I have shared this comment with you many times. It is a truism. If we vote for a fascist-Nazi politician, we will have a fascist-Nazi politician in an elective office. The good people of Wisconsin voted for a fascist-Nazi politician in Walker and now they have him in office. The good people of Wisconsin are reaping the endless agony of their votes.

Notes from the Church’s Newsletter

Faith requires that we listen with our hearts and live according to God’s will. Faith does not consist in a formal and superficial conforming to the words in the Holy Bible. Faith is deeper and a more radical level by putting Jesus’ words in your heart and soul. We are to do the will of God out of love. We are called to make the world a place of liberation for all. We are taught as Catholics that the way to peace is justice, such as economic justice. We are called as ordinary persons to build a society in which everyone has an opportunity for an education, health care, and a decent standard of living. We need to pray for the wisdom to know to be fair to all.

Sixty Minutes has mentioned that the United States of Mortal Sin has twenty-five percent of our children living in poverty. The Republicans keep up their babble on family values. If the fascist-Nazi Republicans were truly concerned about family values, they would help to improve family life for the twenty-five percent children who are living in poverty. Their hateful policies and practices are harming and hurting human beings and that is a mortal sin. To die with this mortal sin damns their soul for eternity.

We are in a depression. This depression is a prelude to the tsunami depression that we will experience in 2012. Children are dropping out of school in order to help their parents earn some money. We now can without a doubt say that Child Labor has returned to our damned nation. People who have been evicted from their homes have no real address and so they will be Unable to Vote. The die has been cast so the fascist-Nazi Republicans will never lose another election. Control and power is everlasting for these fascist-Nazis who babble endlessly about family values.

A social worker who works with evicted families says the children of these families are receiving a devastating impact upon their personalities that will scare them forever.

We are truly a nation inundated with mortal sins that has damned our soul. Every time I hear we are a Christian nation I puke and sometimes my puking is a torrential puke.

Do you remember when Leona Helmsley called you and me the Little People and there was a huge uproar? She made the comment when fifteen percent of the media was progressive and today, only four percent of the media is progressive.

When a baby cries, we all cry.

It'll be interesting if Glenn Beck's show is cancelled. I want to see what happens when, à la Highlander, Stephen Colbert takes on Beck's powers.

I like Koch puppies--or if you want to get edgy, Koch-suckers. (As in "there's a sucker born every minute", of course.)

From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
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
