I think we need to insist that Mitt Romney be more specific about his "jobs plan". I believe he does, indeed, have a plan to create 12 million new jobs. In China.

Thom, you've inspired me! As a result of your "Get out there! Get active" plea, I volunteered today for the first time at my local Democratic Party headquarters. And I'm going back next week. I'm not going to sit back and let the Republicans destroy my country! Thanks so much, Thom, for the inspiration and for the knowledge you share. You have given me the knowledge I need to fight back.

Thom, I think that it would be helpful to use language like George Lakoff suggests for getting our message across. It seems that some times we spend too much time using language that only liberals will hear. We need to practice language and thought patterns that others will be receptive to.

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 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 Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
