Happy anniversary, Thom & Louise.

To all the veterans, I say, "Sorry you had to go. Glad you could come back."

Thank or apologize? I find it interesting that in ASL, the signs for "please" and "sorry" are very similar. They both involve rubbing your hand over your heart or chest, but one uses an open hand with fingers spread (5 hand) and the other a fist (A hand).

In addition to Matthew 25:32, to support Thom's argument about nations caring for the poor, I offer Matthew 11:20-24, wherein Jesus admonishes whole cities (for what, he doesn't say).

The Greek word for nation is "ethnos", whence we get the term "ethnic", but I can't confirm that that was the word used by St. Matthew.

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:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."
Van Jones, cofounder of RebuildTheDream.com and author of The Green Collar Economy
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
