Is Next On Trump's List To Turn Grandma and Grandpa Into Soylent Green?

Thom plus logo Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick of Texas has said, essentially, that old people should be willing and enthusiastic to patriotically die so that Trump can put the economy back into gear. Apparently he didn't get the memo that most of them will die in a hospital, clogging up our healthcare system and infecting our healthcare workers. But, not to worry, Britt Hume at Fox News says that's "an entirely reasonable" position.

So Trump wants to destroy our hospital system and risk 2 million dead Americans to get the economy working again. This is not only stupid and illogical, but it's also a sign of sociopathy: a complete empathetic disconnection from other humans. What's next? Turn older people into Soylent Green?

Dan Patrick's only credential was being a Conservative Radio Host. Which means he lied a lot. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Patrick

Out of pocket costs for Covid-19 in our for profit healthcare system.

Haha, yeah, ol' Danny Pugh, aka Dan Patrick, will have to scrub his Wiki page again if the Wiki crew can figure out how to reduce a psychopathic politician's genocidal thoughts down to a sanitized, G-rated blurb without the requisite colorful adjectives and invectives. It looks like his other big splash in life soon lost to history was that one day back in his high school glory days when he scored 36 points in a basketball game. Impressive. "Puggy" even had his picture hung belatedly on their Hall of Fame display in the main hallway. Awesome.

I wonder if the school had to change his real last name on the picture blurb though. Sure, it might sound a little funny (kinda is); but damn, boy, is that any reason to be ashamed of your heritage? Were you not the apple of your pappy's eye? Psychiatrists say that a difficult father-son relationship can leave a kid horribly scarred for life. Is that what happened to you, lil' Puggy? Or was it Pugh Ugly? Because that certainly matches your whiny little mind.

Is that also what happened to the false idol before you, Putin's stooge "Vladimir" Trump? Another fake Christian with daddy issues? (KJ; Judges 10:14: Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.) The completely irreligious and rightfully impeached Donald John Trump is destroying your government, your democracy, your integrity, and making a mockery of your religious and patriotic principles, if any, through his astounding, unshackled dishonesty, immorality, and criminal behavior, all taking place in real-time right before your blank cow eyes.

And ol' Pugh Nuts is not the only genocidal maniac serving the Party instead of the People.

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:
"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:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
