The State of the Union is Worrying

Thom plus logo We are worried about global warming, all the lobbyists running government, that the economy will crash, that Trump will start a war, for the children that have been ripped from the mother's arms at the border, that Trump has sold this country out to other dictators around the world, and that Mike Pence will destroy the rights of women.

We are also worried because many of us are one paycheck away from the street and the next medical crisis may be unaffordable. But, most of all we are worried - what Trump might do - that we can't yet imagine. When you govern by whim - you get a worried electorate.

Lobbyists hate him they can't buy him off. He is trying to stop them from making the trip so children will not be put through that. He has sold out to no one , finally someone is looking out for the best interest of Americans. Start a war? he is pulling out of one. Worried about money, wages are going up and taxes coming down. What has he done about rights?

Trump is Broke: Has He Already Sold Out America To Get the Money He Needs?

Thom plus logo Back in the day, Donald Trump's niece alleges, he stole hundreds of millions of dollars from his father's estate, screwing his other family members and the IRS (you and me).

He then went on a massive spending binge, pouring that money into airlines, steaks, vodka, Trump-branded games, casinos, a fake university, etc. Virtually all of them failed, and he experienced multiple bankruptcies.
From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
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
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."
