I Caught You Doing Something Right - Get a FREE!! Pigeon T-Shirt

So often we catch people doing things wrong but really the best way to motivate people and to create a positive world view that gets people active is the catch people doing something right. Thom would like you to catch someone in your family, community or life doing something right.

Our Superspreader President Has Blood On His Hands & So Does the Republican Party

Thom plus logo A new study from Columbia University lays the deaths of tens to hundreds of thousands of Americans at the feet of the Trump administration and the Republican party.

Comparing the United States to other developed countries, they laid out how our lack of a systemic federal response to the coronavirus has endangered Americans.

The Future of American Values Is On the Ballot

Thom plus logo The corruption of Donald Trump is legendary.

He was trying to cut a deal for a Trump Tower in Moscow right up to the day of the election in 2016, and lied about it over and over and over again.

Will American Elections Ever Again Be Legitimate?

Thom plus logo Only an established, legal "right to vote" can defeat Republican voter suppression.

Republican politicians and conservative commentators are shocked, shocked! that Chief Justice John Roberts would say that people who voted before election day in Pennsylvania but their ballots were delayed by Lewis DeJoy's sabotage of the Post Office should have their vote counted.

How Does a Nation Best Deal With a Leader Who Intentionally Kills Its Citizens?

Thom plus logo Covid infections now represent the third leading cause of death in America. This is an extremely contagious, crippling and deadly disease.

On top of that, there's a growing legion of people who call themselves "long haulers," who have been seriously disabled by Covid and are unable to live a normal life because of severe chronic fatigue, screaming nerve pain, and other chronic conditions.

More News From The Republican Death Cult

Thom plus logo Scientists are projecting 400,000 deaths by the end of the year from coronavirus, although a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association suggests that we have already undercounted the total deaths so far by as many as 75,000.

Meanwhile, we're learning that back in February the Trump administration gave a private briefing to elites at the conservative Hoover Institution, telling them the economy was about to get into big trouble because of the virus. As a result numerous multimillionaires and billionaires made a huge killing, while the American middle class got wiped out.

Trump Makes the Case for Medicare for All

Thom plus logo It's now semi-official. People within the Trump administration have laid it out: the actual coronavirus strategy of the federal government is now herd immunity.

That will require roughly 70% of America's 340 million people to become infected, a total of 238 million people.

Trump & The Republicans Say they Are "Prolife" But Really Are A Death Cult

Thom plus logo Donald Trump is running around the country encouraging people to congregate and behave in ways that spread the coronavirus, and not a single Republican in Congress is warning their constituents about the dangers.

How is this different from Jim Jones encouraging his followers to drink cyanide-laced Kool-Aid while his enablers stand by? Isn't it just a matter of severity?

It's Time To Unpack The Court

Thom plus logo Donald Trump was bragging a week or so ago that Obama had "left me 128 judges to fill" as if Obama was just sloppy. The actual number was 105, but Obama didn't "leave" them; he'd appointed genuinely qualified people, many women and minorities, to fill every single one of those judicial slots, and Mitch McConnell simply blocked them in the senate for the last two years of the Obama presidency.

The GOP is pursuing a public slaughter strategy - known to some as "herd immunity"

Thom plus logo People are acting shocked-shocked, I tell you!-that the Trump/GOP strategy on coronavirus is essentially one of promoting herd immunity with the possible downside of as many as 2.5 million dead Americans.

We shouldn't be surprised. It's simply the logical extension of conservative policies on pretty much everything for the past 90 years-policies that have killed a hell of a lot more than just 2.5 million people.

Republicans Are Willing To Use the Science They Claim To Hate

Thom plus logo Donald Trump was on television this morning sounding manic but not coughing. It seems he's gotten another steroid shot and is feeling better.

He attributes his recovery, or has in the last week, to the new monoclonal antibody cocktail from Regeneron that he took early in the course of his disease. And it may well be a wonder drug.

Without Clean Elections There Is No America

Thom plus logo The polls all show that Joe Biden is winning the presidential race in a landslide, but Americans are worried that Donald Trump will nonetheless steal this election.

Americans have been told to tolerate the fact that a man who lost an election by 3 million votes sits in the White House.

What Will It Take To Get Trump To Change His Deadly Position On The Coronavirus?

Thom plus logo Donald Trump is stuck.

Back in March and early April, the Trump administration relied on science and epidemiologists and put together a plan for the coronavirus. The Post Office would send five high-quality masks to every American. The economy would be shut down for a month or two so we could assess the situation while aggressively testing and doing contact tracing to isolate outbreaks and control and confine the disease.

Will Republican voter suppression efforts be enough to block the tens of millions of Americans who have discovered that Trump and the Republicans don't give a damn about them?

Thom plus logo In a stunning proof that he doesn't care about anybody's life except his own, a sick and infectious Donald Trump ordered two Secret Service agents to join him in "The Beast," the presidential limousine, which is "hermetically sealed against chemical attacks" so it has absolutely no fresh air.

If White America Doesn't Wake Up America May Become an Ungovernable Hellhole

Thom plus logo We're now learning that the Department of Homeland Security officials were given talking points to share with the media the defended Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who traveled with his semiautomatic assault rifle from Illinois to Kenosha, Wisconsin to kill two people and blow the arm off a third.
