Occupy Seattle has a demand. That the Seattle City Council vote to remove the city's money from Well's Fargo to a local Washington State bank or credit union. One of the council members has introduce this idea to the agenda for next Monday at 2:00 PM. If it passes, it could be the start of something big. I would love to see local and state municipalities remove their funds from Big Banks. And of course, no mention in the local newspaper.

A couple friends of mine have been listening to a history of Rome by a man named Dan Carlin. (I think it's a podcast.) They have both been rather disturbed by the parallels in how Rome went from a republic to an empire.

Herman Cain's accuser #5 said she had on a skirt and a blouse. What did Herman have on? I'm pretty sure it was a hard-on.

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 Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
