Can America Claim to Be Civilized?

Thom plus logo Supposedly Stalin said, " A single death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic."

Today's statistic is 15,600 dead people since 2012 because Republicans in Red States have refused to expand Medicaid to cover low-wage working people, according to a new study quoting government statistics. Every one of those people who died prematurely and unnecessarily last year because of Republican greed and corruption had a family and people they knew, loved, and who now miss them.

Perhaps someone in your own extended family or circle of acquaintances has died because of Republican greed and corruption. Until America joins the rest of the developed world with a public national healthcare system, we can't claim to be a civilized nation. Instead, the GOP has caused us to be the heir to Stalin's cynicism.

When Trump tells the Fab 4 to go home because they don’t like America he should be reminded that he does not represent America and that why they really don’t like is Trump’s America of hate and divisiveness.

Good Friday HotCoffee, back in town and glad to be so. On an early hour morning walk, I tuned in Democracy Now and laughed at the efforts lefties go to twist news into their narrative, Today which must have been a repeat of yesterday devoted a lot of time to conservative Boris Johnson who was just elected in the UK. It so reminded me of all the Sturm und Drang that followed the Trump election in the US.

The media is so united in their hatred I will leave this for you to enjoy.

Note how communist Thom Hatrmann embraces capitalist opportunities by seeking out ways to exploit his "fame" by pimping cruise lines to offer him a free vacation if he can convince enough lemmings to also sign on the SS Minnow. I would love to have a video of that group all huddled around a flatscreen for 5-1/2 hours watching intently for Mueller to support any of their beliefs only to see the entire meme collapse before their very eyes.

Isn't it great to have a POTUS that enjoys life...and made that wedding even more special at the same time.

The dems huddle for their coordinated chant...heaven forbid one of them have an original thought....repeat after me...the walls are closing in...They look like they are at a funeral.

Several Repubs passed some of their time back to Jim Jordan during the questioning of Mueller if you put Jordan's questions together it goes like this.

makes much more sense this way.

I just got more after I have a chance to see what crazyness is going on today.

Mike Lindell of My Pillow Considering a Run Against Ilhan Omar in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District
By Shane Trejo

Freshman legislator Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has quickly emerged as one of the nation’s most reviled lawmakers after making a cacophony of anti-Semitic, anti-white and anti-American comments while serving in Congress. Mike Lindell, better known as the My Pillow inventor, is considering a challenge against her next year.

Lindell confirmed that he will be intimately involved in the effort to turn Minnesota red next year, and failed to rule out a potential Congressional run against Omar during an appearance on the Sara Carter show earlier this month.

“There’s things going on you don’t even see,” he said. “And I will tell you this, I’m going to do so much in Minnesota over the next year and a half, you won’t even see any blue.”

HotCoffee, another of the rants by one of the lefties on Democracy Now was over Puerto Rico. If Hatrmann was anything like all the rest of the socialist media, he ranted on and on over President Trump's lack of response to the Hurricane. NOW it comes to light that the billions that we taxpayers sent were all squandered just as President Trump stated years ago.

Somehow I missed all the apologies from the media for their fake news.

As for Mike Lindell running or office, screw Omar as she has become a republican asset.

Mike Lindell should run for senate and would make mincemeat of either senator Amy Klobuchar or Tina Smith both as ineffective as a box of raisins.

Good afternoon HotCoffee,

Interesting to Bernie Freeshit Sanders come face to face with economic reality. After screwing his workers and gets called out, his response was to cut hours back and eliminate staff. Welcome to the real world ol' Bern. Perhaps you could sell one of your three homes and cough up a buck or to for the "little people"

Then there is Talib, an anchor baby from Palestine who screeched racist in front of any microphone she could find when President Trump suggested Omar return to Somalia and fix her country and then return to show us how she corrected that 5th world country. Well, who woulda thunk, Tlaib during the 2016 Trump campaign told Trump to return to the country he came from.

It appears the republicans best vote getter Omar, found herself in trouble because she marched in the gay pride parade in Minneapolis in July. Radical Muslims have a tendency to kill gays on sight. Omar has some splanin' to do back home.

As we noted in March, current and former FBI associates were embarrassed to even turn on their TV’s before the Mueller testimony. Now they must be enraged.

Time magazine of all places reported about the many efforts the FBI took related to Hillary’s exoneration and then the framing of President Trump. These corrupt and criminal actions have taken a desperate toll on the current members of the FBI –

In normal times, the televisions are humming at the FBI’s 56 field offices nationwide, piping in the latest news as agents work their investigations. But these days, some agents say, the TVs are often off to avoid the crush of bad stories about the FBI itself. The bureau, which is used to making headlines for nabbing crooks, has been grabbing the spotlight for unwanted reasons: fired leaders, texts between lovers and, most of all, attacks by President Trump. “I don’t care what channel it’s on,” says Tom O’Connor, a veteran investigator in Washington who leads the FBI Agents Association. “All you hear is negative stuff about the FBI … It gets depressing.”

Of course the employees of the FBI are in a funk, their fearless and corrupt leaders, as well as leaders in Obama’s corrupt DOJ, participated in extravagant efforts to exonerate the obvious criminal actions of Hillary Clinton, and then to do all they could to prevent candidate Trump from winning an election. Then once the election was won by President Trump, they went to unheard of depths of deceit and corruption to attempt to remove him from office.

tomorrow's good!

Good Sunday HotCoffee, I am enjoying a large cup right now.

Right on with the FBI. Obama pretty much destroyed the integrity of the FBI, Secret Service, and mush of Homeland Security. This from 2014 no less,

I missed the giant kerfuffle over Ivanka Trump picking up a new dog and the leftie/socialists went absolutely nuts over the fact the dog was "WHITE". My God how many took to social media blasting her for that choice. Rumour has it that President Trump is also picking out a new dog,

I just love Collies I grew up with 3 full size collies, very smart dogs! my best friends had border collies and they are the same, just smaller. After the collies passed on I 've had shepard huskie mix, they are smart too..a cop stopped my son when he was young for riding his bike and not stopping at a stop sign, he warned him it was dangerous and our shepard took the cop by his wrist and brought him to our house about a block away. Good thing the cop loved dogs.

This whole 3 years has been nothing but a cover hillary and cohorts butt session.

Hopefully Huber & Barr will put and end to it.

Nolte – MSNBC Host: We’re Not Going to ‘Play Fair’ to Put Trump in Jail
by John Nolte

During a Friday appearance on Morning Joe, MSNBC host Donny Deutsch promised the world, “We’re not going to necessarily play fair” to put President Trump “in jail.”

“We may not have won the battle of impeachment,” Deutsch squealed, “but we’re going to win the war of putting him in jail — whatever we have to do, and we’re not going to necessarily play fair.”

So what you have here is an anchor for a major cable news outlet assuring everyone that when it comes to putting an individual in prison, “we’re not going to … play fair.”

This is how far gone the media now are…

And the hits just keep on coming............

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) once referenced North Korea to slam the conditions and lifespan of residents in Baltimore’s “poorest boroughs,” calling it a “disgrace.”

This comes in the wake of far-left politicians slamming President Trump over criticisms of House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD), who represents Baltimore’s district.

In 2016, Sanders slammed the conditions in Baltimore’s “poorest boroughs,” claiming that residents have “lifespans shorter than people living under dictatorship in North Korea.”

“That is a disgrace,” he added in May 2016.

Residents of Baltimore’s poorest boroughs have lifespans shorter than people living under dictatorship in North Korea. That is a disgrace.

— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) May 5, 2016

Days later, he added: “Horribly, someone born in Baltimore’s poorest neighborhood can expect to live 20 years less than a person born in the wealthiest area.”

Horribly, someone born in Baltimore's poorest neighborhood can expect to live 20 years less than a person born in the wealthiest area.

— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) May 13, 2016

This comes in the wake of criticisms from far-left lawmakers aimed at Trump, who slammed Cummings Saturday for “shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border.”

and more

and now on to Sara Carter....

Butina’s lawyer, Robert Driscoll, also confirmed the relationship between Byrne and Butina. Driscoll stated that he also had relayed the information to the FBI and prosecutors earlier during his trial, and asked repeatedly about any Brady material -exculpatory information – that the bureau may have collected from Byrne on Butina, to no avail. The bureau denied it had any information regarding Byrne and Butina’s relationship, said Driscoll.

On Thursday, Driscoll sent a letter to United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut John Durham, who was appointed by Attorney General William Barr to investigate the FBI’s handling of the Russia investigation; Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who is conducting an investigation into the bureau’s origins of the Trump probe and Corey Amundson, with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Professional Responsibility.

Write On, Sister... DJT, The Salty Sailor And The Fireman

Sometimes you just run across thoughts that prick you when touring various boards.

Here's one:
Great analogy!! I think her writing represents so many people's feelings

Read this once, pause for a minute or two to think honestly about it, then read it again. I can find no fault with it...

The views this mother has about Donald Trump are much like many other people. Her characterization of Trump as the "Salty Sailor" or as “The Fireman” paint an excellent picture!! She has written many great books about her son and family. This is a Comment from KAREN VAUGHN, Mother of Aaron Vaughn, Navy Seal.

Sometimes God uses the no-nonsense, salty sailor to get the job done. Appreciating what the man is doing doesn't mean we worship the salty sailor or even desire to be like the salty sailor. It doesn't even mean God admires the salty sailor. Maybe He just knows he's necessary for such a time as this.

I believe with all my heart that God placed that salty sailor in the White House to give this nation one more chance in November 2016. Donald Trump is what he is – and he is still the man he was before the election – and without guilt. I very much admire what that salty sailor is accomplishing.

He's not like me. That's okay with me. I don't want to be like him. I will never behave like him. I know we've NEVER had a man like him lead our nation before. It's crazy and a little mind-blowing at times. But I can't help admire the stamina and ability he has – acting with his heart rather than a calculated, PC, think tank-screened, carefully edited script. I still believe that is WHY he became our President and WHY he's been able to handle a landslide of adversity and STILL pass unprecedented amounts of good legislation for our country AND do great works for MANY other nations, including Israel.

I'm THRILLED with what he's doing for my nation, for the cause of Christ (whether intentional or unintentional, doesn't matter to me), and for the concept of rebuilding America and putting her FIRST. I will not be ashamed of my position because others don't see him through the same lens.

Should it matter to me if a fireman drops an f-bomb while he's pulling me from a burning building? Would I really care about what came out of his mouth in those moments? Heck no! I'd CARE about what he was DOING. He wasn't sent there to save my soul and I'm not looking to him for spiritual guidance. All I'm thinking in those moments is, "Thank you, GOD, for sending the fireman." AND DONALD TRUMP IS OUR FIREMAN.

I'll soon post this article again for those who still might not understand me. This man is crass. Okay. He's not careful with what he says. Okay. You feel offended that he's not a typical statesman. Okay. But he is DOING THE JOB of rebuilding the nation my son died for... the nation I feared was on a fast track to becoming a hopeless cause.

Forgive me if I'm smiling."

C'mon Now, Do You REALLY Think Your Food Delivery Order Would Not Be Munched On By The College Dropout SJW Who Delivered It?

(WSET) -- Ever wondered if a delivery driver took a bite of your food while on delivery? A new study says your fears might be real.

A new study done by US Food shows the habits of both customers and delivery drivers.

The study shows 28 percent of delivery drivers have taken food from a customer's order.

54 percent of delivery drivers polled also said they are often tempted by the smell of the food they deliver to customers.

The US Food study also shows that 17 percent of customers complained their food was not warm or fresh, and 16 percent complained their food was delivered late.

Customers weren't the only ones with complaints about food delivery. The study also says 60 percent of delivery drivers complained of receiving little or no tip, while 39 percent complained that the customer's instructions were unclear.

The study covered 1,518 American adults who have used food delivery apps, including UberEats, Grubhub, DoorDash and Postmates from May 9 to 13.

They also surveyed 497 American adults who identified as having worked as a deliverer for at least one food delivery app.

The mysterious Mister Mifsud and why no one wants to discuss himBy Jonathan Turley, opinion contributor — 07/27/19 10:00 AM EDT

Joseph Mifsud: The name of the generally unknown character in the Russia investigation came up, over and over, in the long-awaited House committee hearings with former special counsel Robert Mueller. Republican Jim Jordan of Ohio invoked the name as if it legally required the accompaniment of horror movie theme music; Mueller immediately snapped back that he would not discuss that man. Yet that did not deter Republicans. “Joseph Mifsud,” “Joseph Mifsud” — the mantra continued until the shadowy professor had emerged as the Keyser Söze of the Mueller hearings.

Söze was the mysterious figure in the film “The Usual Suspects.” Another of the film’s characters, “Verbal” Kint, explained to an FBI agent that Söze was a criminal mastermind who committed horrible acts and then disappeared: “Nobody has ever seen him since. He becomes a myth, a spook story that criminals tell their kids at night. Rat on your pop, and Keyser Söze will get you.”

Mifsud appears to be the story that Republicans tell their kids at night. However, it is a new story for most of us. Political analyst David Gergen acknowledged as much during CNN’s live coverage of hearings, saying that Republicans “presented things, frankly, we haven't talked about much on CNN, aspects of this that are on the right but we don't — you know — we haven't visited because we don't put much stock in a lot of what they're arguing.”

Indeed, despite the nonstop coverage of the Russia investigation, most news shows have rarely “visited” the allegations linked to Mifsud. Certain subjects are rarely visited by CNN or other networks, at least not substantively. Media largely dismisses the fact that the Clinton campaign also solicited political dirt from foreign intelligence sources, including Russian intelligence, through investigator and British ex-spy Christopher Steele and the research firm Fusion GPS. Few programs mention that Glenn Simpson, a co-founder of Fusion GPS, had dinner with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya both the day before and the day after she met with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016.

Many figures are now household names, such as resigned Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and onetime Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. But not Mifsud, despite his central role as a catalyst of the original investigation. For Republicans, it is like what Kint said about Söze: “The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”

Two years ago, I wrote about Mifsud and his curious role in the unfolding scandal. He was variously described as a “Russian stooge,” a “KGB cutout” or an intelligence handler. Mifsud had worked as a “full-time professorial teaching fellow” at the University of Stirling in Scotland and was a professor at the London Academy of Diplomacy. He had a degree from the University of Malta and ran in diplomatic circles as a type of dealmaker for grants and conferences. He was said to be a fan and claimed acquaintance of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

For Republicans, if there was a Garden of Eden in the Trump campaign, Mifsud was the snake. It was Mifsud who, in a 2016 meeting in London with then-Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, suddenly broached the possibility that the Russians might have emails and dirt on Hillary Clinton. Notably, he had that meeting just after returning from Moscow and allegedly referred to “thousands of emails.” Papadopoulos later repeated what he had been told to Australian diplomat Alexander Downer in a London pub, and Downer reported that to the U.S. government.

How can we be civilized as long as portions of our major cities are "rat infested"? Everyone, and I mean Everyone, knows that what Trump said about Baltimore is more truth than rascist. And Cummings knows it. There have been several stories about this problem including by the Baltimore Sun. This is old news.

The democrats and their pals in the liberal media just can't stand the fact that Trump fights back. If you say something about him or his policies that he doesn't agree with, he says so. If you continue to speak out against him, he just doubles down even more.

Good Tuesday morning HotCoffee and Coalage3,

Coalage, you are right on. Race is a business and two masters at keeping things up are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Both are complete scum and do nothing to help but everything to promote themselves by threatening companies to shovel money into their "foundations". Sharpton who owed the government millions in back taxes sold his life story to his own charity for $530,000 in cash. Add to the likes of those two con men the thousands of bleeding heart leftie/socialists burdens with their own self inflicted white guilt and you now have created a huge $$$$ making business to be exploited.

Hi Diane,

I still recall racist Jessie Jackson spitting in white folks salad!

Once he told of his days as a waiter at the Jack Tar Hotel in his home town of Greenville, S.C. Just before leaving the kitchen he would spit into the food of white patrons he hated and then smilingly serve it to them.

Who can forget Rev. Al Sharpton would not admit the Tawana Brawley rape case he drove to national prominence was a hoax and on Morning Joe Tuesday, saying he had no regrets

however on the bright side....................

This is absolutely brilliant. With OVER 308,000 followers gay-pro-Trump activist Scott Presler is actually doing something about the problems in Baltimore.

A conservative activist just threw down a challenge to liberals who are up in arms about President Trump’s recent remarks about Baltimore.

As Democrats and the talking heads on the left continue their bashing of the president as a racist for stating the obvious on the shameful conditions in Rep. Elijah Cummings’ Maryland district, one Trump supporter is taking action — and challenging the critics to join him.

Scott Presler, a gay Republican from Virginia Beach, announced a trash clean-up day in Baltimore as a way to push back on the anti-Trump rhetoric, calling on volunteers to join the effort.

It's Wednesday Hot Coffee, good day to you,

I couldn't watch the "debates" last night so I just picked up the "highlights?" from various sources.


Laughable, after not having even one American flag on the stage for the first debate, they actually got the message and played the national anthem. Too bad obama could not attend and stand there with his hands in his pockets.

No one mentioned the Mueller Report so that's water over the dam

No one mentioned Russia collusion so that is also a dead duck. BTW, I hear Russia is going to boost their spending in the next election. It will go from 0.000000002% of the total amount spent in the 2016 election to 0.000000003% in 2020.

Marianne Williamson Is apparently a different gender but Governor Moonbeam comes to mind.

Sanders seems to be the most angry old man in the country not to mention he is obviously losing his hearing. Of everything I heard of his participation, he came off as one commentator said, the old man next door who is always shouting at kids, "get off my lawn"

Fauxahontas seemed to be screeching her tripe to a very small tribe.

One analyst commented on the fact some of the first ten seemed to figure out that the far left wackos will have no chance against Trump and realized they needed to bring down the tone and degree of their impossible promises.

So much for the second tier group, tonight the real s**tshow begins with everyone pouncing on the hair sniffer.

This whole debacle reminds me of the start of The Hunger Games.

Heres a bit on Kamala.....

Posted by Daniel Greenfield

Senator Kamala Harris, who lives with her white husband in one of the most segregated neighborhoods in Los Angeles, has come out with a call for busing children to distant schools to fight “segregation”.

That’s great for Kamala, who has no children. Her stepson, Cole, who works at the William Morris Agency, which is about as diverse as his dad and S-Mamala’s Brentwood hood, won’t be bussed to work at more diverse talent agencies, and Ella, won’t be bused from her studies at Parsons School of Design (4% black) to a more diverse design college. Like most politicians, Harris wants to penalize other people.

None of these provisions and solutions to problems that don’t exist will actually apply to her and hers.

If segregation is the mere absence of diversity and requires government intervention, as she insists it does, what is Senator Kamala Harris doing to desegregate her Brentwood neighborhood?

Kamala’s $4.8 million Brentwood home is located in a neighborhood that is 84% white and 1.2% black in Los Angeles, a city that is nearly 10% black.

Senator Harris has come out for busing children to schools that aren’t sufficiently diverse. What about busing some folks from South Central to Brentwood to live across the street from her home?

“There was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day. And that little girl was me,” Senator Kamala Harris whined.

Because the only way a successful Democrat can run for office is by playing the victim.

The truth is that little girl, the privileged daughter of wealthy foreign grad students, wasn’t bused.

She was flown around the world.

That’s not a “right-wing conspiracy theory”, as the media now describes any account fact-checking Kamala Harris’ imaginary past, it’s right there in the words of her own mother who couldn’t stop bragging about the wealth and power that was Kamala’s birthright by way of family and connections.

“When Kamala was in first grade one of her teachers said to me, ‘You know, your child has a great imagination. Every time we talk about someplace in the world she says, ‘Oh, I’ve been there.’ So I told her, ‘Well, she has been there!’”

“India, England, the Caribbean, Africa—she had been there," Kamala's mother told Modern Luxury magazine.

These days, Kamala actually has a great imagination. She has to work hard to imagine being oppressed.

That’s the actual little girl being displayed on those t-shirts that Kamala Harris For the People (the official and officially laughable name of a campaign funded by California millionaires) is selling for $30 bucks.

"Two decades after Brown v. Board, I was only the second class to integrate at Berkeley public schools. Without that decision, I likely would not have become a lawyer and eventually be elected a Senator from California,” Senator Kamala Harris claimed.

Kamala’s insistence that without busing she wouldn’t have become a lawyer or a senator takes place in an exciting fantasy world in which her wealthy, famous and powerful parents never existed. In the real world, her Brahmin mother, an internationally famous cancer researcher, sending her "Montreal’s tony Westmount" high school probably had a lot more to do with her becoming a lawyer.

Busing certainly didn’t put Kamala Harris on a path to the Senate and the White House. Not unless there were buses running directly to Willie Brown’s house and stopping in a shadowy spot at the back door.

It wasn’t civil rights, but an alleged extramarital affair with a dirty San Francisco city boss that made her.

Forget the trauma of busing. To get to where she was, Kamala, at 29, hooked up with Willie, at 60, and ended up in a Brentwood home with no children, but a Senate seat and a shot at the White House.

“And that little girl was me.”

It’s understandable politically and personally why Kamala would want to invent a past in which she hadn’t used her privilege and connections as a down payment on ruining her life and selling her soul.

Kamala’s story, in which busing took her out of the grim inner cities of Berkeley, where she had to watch three beatnik poets recite bad verse before she got to her bus stop, and opened the world to her, so that one day that little girl in the old creased photo could aspire to be president, is much nobler.

Millennials who have delayed marriage, children, and homeownership, have been spending their money not just on servicing their student loans but also on fun adventures throughout Southeast Asia.

Some of these youngsters have been backpacking in countries like Hong Kong and Thailand without money, forced onto the streets to beg for money to fund the remainder of their trip, reported The Guardian.

Locals have called western backpackers: "begpackers," and government officials in several countries have had enough with these pesky white youngsters asking for money from people who are significantly poorer than they're.

Good Thursday HotCoffee, you posted an interesting story. I remember a few who decided the mid-east was a wise choice for free travel and it's didn't turn out so well for them. The education system is a complete fail.

Sadly I missed the debate last night in favor of listening to Mark Levin address the "free healthcare" in the UK and Canada that Hatrmann so frequently touts as the best in the world. He gave facts on the average 21 month wait for joint replacement surgery and commented on the hospital closings and overcrowded conditions. His major point was anything that is free os over abused and soon becomes worthless. Scroll to minute 40 to hear Levin disassemble all that Sanders and Fauxhontas have been pushing on the gullible American public.

Here is a couple of supporting stories that back up Levin.

Bernie and Fauxhontas are totally insane.

The Senate confirmed 13 judges President Donald Trump chose while America had its eyes on the Democratic primary debates Tuesday and Wednesday.

Though Senate Republicans had initially planned to confirm 19 Trump judges before leaving Washington, D.C., for August recess, they successfully confirmed four nominees Tuesday and nine Wednesday.


eventually this will make a difference as the judges we have now are nuts! It's very hard when voting for judges cause voter info is lacking and people just don't know anything about the Judges they vote for.

HotCoffee, I had not seen the new judicial appointments. I heard it was coming but to get it done before their fifth vacation this year was really great.

Mitch McConnell has to be one of the smartest foxes in that den of Senators. I love that guy and a BIG THANK YOU TO DIRTY HARRY REID WHO MADE THIS ALL POSSIBLE.

Hello All

Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
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 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."
