I think everyone should know that J. Walter Thompson, Ford Motor's advertising agency, in New York,is preparing to out source jobs to India. As we speak, observers are learning the jobs of anyone who is a paper pusher, accounting jobs. Those jobs will be sent to India as soon as the next fiscal quarter. Although it hs being kept hush hush, it h has spread Lincoln Division's agency in Detroit, at Team Detroit.

While the CEO has recently told Team Detroit employees that there were going to do some off shore work, they do not understand that the Indian person who is watching them work, will be taking their job from them. These are decent paying pasitions within Team Detroit. These people will be laid off or fired as soon as the observers as soon as they learn those jobs. We should let Alan Mulally know that this is not acceptable

I've heard much jocularity and understandable scorn for the Republican Clown Show from my fellow Liberals. But I haven't heard enough concern about the fact that no matter how unpopular the Republican candidates might be. Or how obviously toxic their policies are. They will be the ones who COUNT THE VOTES in the majority of States, due in fact, to 29 million of "us" who voted for Barack Obama staying home in 2010, because we were "disappointed"! Now if we even can vote they may not be counted! I'd like to hear Thom start to bring this up among his fellow Liberal talk show hosts, including those on MSNBC.

Why should Vermont wait until the U.S. Supreme Court announces its decision on ObamaCare before putting their own health insurance system in place? If SCOTUS strikes ObamaCare down, it will be on the basis of what the federal government is allowed to do, but state governments supposedly have stronger rights to govern. The only things the states can't do are the things the U.S. Constitution says explicitly that they can't do, mostly making war and regulating trade.

Okay, I know I defended Rick Santorum when he seemed to say "black people's lives", but I can't interpret "nig-" as anything but bad.

Thom, Your brief comment on the March 30 show about Total Energy was disingenuous. The Macondo spill was caused primarily caused by BP's lackadaisical on site oversight and short cutting normal safety prodical when cementing a rig. The leak in the North Sea has yet to be determined. The amount of barrels released by Macondo to the Total leak is simialr to comparing bathtub water capacity to a thimble.

Since you spout very frequently that you read the Financial Times if you had indeed read their coverage on this leak that Scotland has jurisdiction you'd realize this. The Scots are also commenting with equanimity about the leak.

Trump is Broke: Has He Already Sold Out America To Get the Money He Needs?

Thom plus logo Back in the day, Donald Trump's niece alleges, he stole hundreds of millions of dollars from his father's estate, screwing his other family members and the IRS (you and me).

He then went on a massive spending binge, pouring that money into airlines, steaks, vodka, Trump-branded games, casinos, a fake university, etc. Virtually all of them failed, and he experienced multiple bankruptcies.
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 Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
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
