Most of us know the fundamentalist true-believers (tea party) are pushing the Republican Party into many lunatic fringe positions much to the detriment of our federal/state governance. However, not so many know that a similar theme runs through an ultraconservative segment of the Catholic Church. Four of the five Catholic men on the Supreme Court miss the good old days of the Middle Ages when the Church ruled 'civil' society. As when Galileo was placed under house arrest, forbidden to publish and Bruno had his jaw nailed shut before he was burned at the stake. To these men, forcing their religious/economic positions on others is a perk due to their status at the top of the legal hierarchy. Democracy does not fit into their world view because they believe the powerful should rule in any capricious fashion they have the power to enforce.

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:
"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
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
