Re: Community policing and undercover police
Story- when I was in college a hundred years ago, there were student members of the campus police. A small group of us were, shall we say, being rowdy, and the campus police showed up. One of them was a student I knew. I looked at her, she looked at me, and I said, "OK, we'll be quiet now." The "real" officer looked at her in awe.
It didn't hurt that I was madly in love with her....
Undercover cops- I think it's a lot like journalists. If a journalist is there to observe and report on a story, that's fine. If they participate, become part of the story, not so fine. If there is a large public gathering and a plainclothes cop is there in the crowd, I don't see that as an issue. If he is holding a sign, pretending to be for or against what's going on, or incites any action, that is way over the line.

OMG. Thoughts are not energy, they are a biochemical process. Autistic people are not telepathic; no one is. This sounds like a reformulation of "indigo children". The kid's mantra use sounds like a decent technique obviously, though a bit Bokononist.

"Erythrophobically ugly"? With fear of the color red?

Mathboy..... if thoughts are not (electrical) energy, how exactly does an EEG work?
Must be magic.....

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 Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
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
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
