Hour One: "Brunch With Bernie" - Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) takes your calls
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.

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.
