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?

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:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
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."
