The California Primary Election is this Tuesday. Lots of judicial choices on the ballot but it's difficult to find any information about judges. I found 2 Right-Wing election guides and they were 100% consistent in their preferences for judges. I marked my ballot opposite of their choices. What other information is there to go by? THEN I got several mailers supposedly from Democratic groups. They endorsed all the right Democrats for high offices, the ones who will win in California anyway, BUT all their judicial endorsements were for ALL THE RIGHT-WING JUDGES. People fall for this kind of deception all the time. How do we wake people up and let them know they should NEVER trust campaign adds?

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:
"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 Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
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."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
