Missouri used to be WELL educated and progressive. We've been forced to destroy the commons by Republicans and this year we will see Unions made illegal. I'm selling and moving, probably to France, but if California secedes......... BTW I bought Evloution, and LOVE it. We plan to play with Orange Hitler fans in FL over XMAS

We don't need to TRY privatized schools, we ALMOST NOTHING BUT privatized schools for over a century, very low literacy, and government for the governors. (like Cuba pre-Castro.)

Ask these clowns if they would support privatized schools where anyone is allowed to attend any school, including tranporation to/from, at zero cost.

The Republicans, including Orange Hitler, have repeatedly said that the USA must lower wages to compete. They are right. When Americans work for $2 a day, no company will send fabric to Haiti to sew into clothes. What they never mention is at $2 a day, Americans will have the same standard of living as Haitians. Why not pay $1 a day, then Americans can make clothes for Haiti.

The conversion of USA 2017 to Germany 1932 is underway. My unofficial research, talking to people in cities and rural, finds about 60% of Americans have no idea this is happening. I'm moving to France. After they've taken the blacks, jews, hispanics, women, gays, and lovers of freedom, I won't be here.

Republicans love simple solutions. Think if they could skip right past poverty and slavery and just sell all the land to a handful of people and give them OWNERSHIP of anyone who isn't nobility on THEIR land. We could call it feudalism. Oh, has that been tried? From the point of view of the ultra rich, feudalism is the good old days.

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:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
