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 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
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 Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
