May I just say:

Moving Panetta from the CIA to the Pentagon and putting *General* Petreus in charge of the CIA doesn’t make a lick of sense.

Why not keep Panetta at the CIA and make Petreus the new Sec of Def?

corporations are out of rhythm with the natural order of cooperation. the interconnection of all life (dependant origination). where corps will put profit before the dignity of life. i have great hope for the future that the youth that understand dependant origination will become our leaders in society

Didn't Trump say he'd release his tax records when Obama released his birth certificate? Time to turn it back onto the Donald.

It's funny that I'm also annoyed by the use of CE and BCE instead of AD and BC. And I'm an atheist! I'm annoyed at the people who are offended that the era is named after the guy whose birth it's based on.

If I had my way, we'd use "TJ"--tempore Jesu (in the time of Jesus)--using his name, not his controversial title. We could take advantage of the change in terminology to change the numbers too; make 1 BC into 0 TJ, 2 BC in to -1 TJ, etc. Having a year zero would make the math easier.

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
