I would like to hear more about Cantor shorting the dollar so he can make the big bucks when we default. Is this true? Shouldn't that be big news and a look inside about who the Republicans really work for?

China is now doing more human genome mapping than we are http://www.newsweek.com/2011/04/24/high-quality-dna.html.

This should give us pause for thought. Do we want China to have the right to "own" genome intellectual property? China will be able to make much more advances in medicine due to their lower ethical standards. Do you think for a moment that they will hesitate to do experiments considered abhorrent here on their prisoners or their people? They will undoubtedly discover some very useful things from this research and then will be very happy to sell to us. Will China-Med be the next pharmaceutical giant? Is the world really flat?

Will Forcing Kids and Teachers Back to School Be Trump's Waterloo?

Thom plus logo Trump's first major policy change on his first full day as president was to gut implementation of the "Waters of America" Act.

His change allowed coal mines and factories to increase their profits by dumping massive amounts of poison in our rivers and waterways.
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 Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
