Did I miss your condemnation of the protestors, looters, and rioter's lack of respect for social distancing and proper mask attire during their shoulder to shoulder marches and subsequent invasions of every business that had a glass window? Seems logical that screaming loudly through masks made out of a single layer of cotton or their hundreds of maskless interviews shouting into any convenient reporters microphone only to have that reporter immediately hand the mic to the next protestor would be a very dangerous practice.

If the lockdown/mask mantra was the correct path, we should see millions of new cases of the Chinese virus starting Monday, June 8.

From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."

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."

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."
