The slogan for the entire Democratic Party in this election cycle should be "Something Versus Nothing".

Not letting people leave a building could be considered kidnapping. Do you remember when O. J. Simpson wouldn't let a guy leave his hotel room? He was charged with kidnapping.

Video of police provocateurs --

Thom, hope you're reading the blog :) I believe you mentioned during the first hour of the show that you've seen video of provocateurs dressed as protestors or anarchists who vandalize property and are later seen walking away with the police "as if they were one of them". Could you post a link if you have one?

Meanwhile, on our local corporate "news" station (KCBS-AM 740 San Francisco) they went with a story (right after you mentioned the provocateurs) about how the former chief of the Oakland PD was upset about the property damage caused by, and I quote, the "violent Occupy Oakland protests." So that's the line the corporate media, even here in the "liberal" Bay Area, continue to push.

From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
