Joni Ernst's bread bag story sounds like its supposed to be about poverty, but since it's just about preserving your shoes it actually has no connection. Clearly every family wanted to do the same thing, whatever it really was.

Let me tell you about poverty and shoes.

When I'm doing well, I stock up on things, mostly food. But currently, I'm deep in debt and am putting off buying new shoes. I would have bought some in October, and even that was a wait; I was putting up with a pair of sneakers that started to fall apart within a month of buying them and are now unfit for wearing in wet weather. So for winter, I've switched to my spare pair, which are a semi-business style and seem to be holding together despite being from the same store and the same manufacturer. I wouldn't normally wear this pair because the tops aren't as high and my socks can get a little wet above the shoes.

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 Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
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
