Prisoners are privatized, but escapees are externalized. Texas threatened to charge CCA for expenses of capture. I don't remember the outcome. I do remember that in the one instance I heard of that there was no law against walking away from a corporation, but the two escapees beat up a guard and stole his car, both crimes in Texas. They had been sent to Texas for sentences handed down in the Northwest.

What's more important to the republicons than jobs and war?

Oh - Don't tell me - I know this one.........

The answer is - war and war!!!!!! they could give 2 squats about jobs - never have, never will.

Protest - keep after it. I know it's disheartening that if 1,000 protesters get together, it won't even make a paper, but if 200 teabaggers get together, it's all over the news. However,if you just reach a few people, it will help.

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 is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
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:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
