Brilliant Thom --- all day long --
and you not even feeling well ---
**** Take First People's Nation's Medicine:
White people's name: "Pleurisy Root" tincture **************

Then, for laugh therapy and social change,
plan a best-selling reality show:
America agrees to a compromise with the
Internationals who hold Her hostage;
we will let the CEOs set the working wage and standard
acceptable benefits, etc. provided they each agree to
live for one year by the wage that they set for others.

The results, needless to say,
are hilarious! See it on Free Speech TV!

-- and a quick thank you for playing
Rep. Walsh's Words --

most moving Words I have heard
a Legislator Speak.....

I am from Washington -- I will call her.

Civility has gone down because lawfulness has gone up. Extreme conformism comes from dangerous times, when people that don't dress exactly right or talk in the right dialect are automatically suspected of being criminals (those dagbern hoodlums!).

Thom, you know why the Republican Caucus is heated in debate? Because of Mitt's dog Shamus. Shamus Santorumed the Romney's read windshield. And actually, Shamus didn't run away, Shamus was given away, and 20 plus odd years later, the spirit of Shamus is running against Mitt

We now have Senator Man-on-Dog vs. Governor Dog-on-Car.

Prison corps like to hold "cheap to keep" prisoners - young male drug offenders and immigrants. They profit big on them but you know who else does- Phone companies and Western Union drain the pocketbooks of frantic prisoner families

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing 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 Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
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 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
