I agree with the minimalists that it's dangerous to locate your self esteem outside your self. People put it into sport teams, political parties, individual politicians, religion, religious leaders, and it's a mistake.

I like the parry the one guy has for the question "What do you do?": talk about your passion instead of your job.

Quizatiously ugly? That doesn't even sound like a real word.

Trump "Never Noticed" A Modern-Day American Genocide

Thom plus logo Donald Trump said in a rally last night that the coronavirus, "Affects virtually nobody."

Apparently "virtually nobody" means 200,000 dead Americans, ranging in age from the elderly to infants.
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
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
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
