Tornado Risk

The utility known as Tepco hasn’t decided to install any additional safety measures against tornadoes, Junichi Matsumoto, a general manager at the utility, told reporters May 7. “It may be necessary to investigate the possibility of tornadoes in Fukushima, but we don’t plan to take any action at the moment,” Matsumoto said.

Since Thom is talking about Hitler and his eugenics program and persecution policies. I just want to point out, it wasn't just Hitler that came up with this stuff in Germany. Not saying that he doesn't deserve his fair share of blame, but lets not forget Himmler who pursued some of his own theories. Not to mention some of the medical experiments performed by several different people who were allowed access to perform whatever experiment they wanted.

Just sometimes feels like when the name Hitler is invoked (or Stalin for that matter) there is an implication that he willed all these terrible deeds despite opposition. Fact of the matter is, like any politician he saw the parade coming down the street and jumped in front of it. Though admittedly he was looking for that parade for quite some time.

I have to listen to Thom late because Phoenix now plays the show later. I just heard Thom give a brilliant, succinct analysis of what's been happening since Bush wrecked the economy and the Republican plot to blame it on Obama to take back everything this year. He should write this down.

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:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
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."
