How about we rename ISIS the Combined Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, thereby giving it the acronym CISSI?

Spain used the peseta, not the peso.

Government by urim and thummim--hilarious. You may as well flip a coin with its sides labeled "guilty" and "innocent", rather than having a jury and lawyers. Better yet, get a monkey and a typewriter, "consecrate" them, and let the monkey type the laws. That would be some serious trust in God.

That was Caspar Weinberger, not Weinberg.

There is a Texas phenomenon named Kinky Friedman who closes his act with the line, 'may the God of your choice bless you real good.' The question is not which God you believe in (within the Abrahamic tradition) but rather which guy(s) actually spoke for Him. Strangely, God cannot speak for Herself.

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 The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
