Regarding high level of rape in the military, 70 per day, if women were in charge, it could be treated like the 83-year old lady said in the 3rd hour of the show (6/4/13). When a man caught his son who was (retarted?) raping a woman at work, the father had his son castrated. When Dr. Newcomb heard this, he gulped. All men are taken aback. This is such a violation of manhood. But from another point of view, if the gun is loaded to abuse and violate a woman or a man, take away the loaded gun! Especially in a proven case, the punishment, the consequence of castration, makes sense for the crime.

Want stricter gun laws? How about stricter accountability for rape. Rape conviction should require castration. The DNA of a rapist should never be allowed to be passed on to descending generations. It is getting a "high" out of feeling the power of raw violence against another, and all emotion embeds into the DNA. What is recorded in the DNA is suppose to be passed on to future generations as wisdom learned, called evolution, but with the violence creeping into our society, we ought to draw the line. If women were in charge, it would be easy because it is so logical. It's not revenge, it just makes sense. Take away the loaded gun and don't pass on the DNA of violence. Period.

But will the Senate ever make progress moving rape investigation and prosecution out of the military boys club? Women are needed in this picture. Most men will never be even-handed about rape.

If Biden Wins, Get Ready for Trump to Punish America

Thom plus logo What could happen to America if Trump were to further, severely crash the U.S. economy the day after Joe Biden is announced as the winner of the 2020 presidential race?

As Trump tweeted on June 15, 2019, "if anyone but me takes over... there will be a Market Crash the likes of which has not been seen before!"
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."

From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
