The Ayn Rand Self-Obsessed Cult Has Run Amok!

Lynn Stuart Parramore, Alternet, joins Thom Hartmann. It seems like everytime you turn on the TV - you hear another story about an A-List celebrity or Wall Street billionaire spending millions on themselves while doing nothing for the greater society. This selfishness plays out in Washington too - where Conservative lawmakers would rather create policies that help the wealthy elite hoard their wealth - than help millions and millions of struggling Americans. But while selfishness might feel good to the individual - it's doing untold and lasting damage to our society and way of life. So - if you think that we can be a productive society while selfishness and narcissism run amok - then everything you know is wrong!

Bryan Fischer Says He’s a Homo-Realist not a Homophobe...

Bryan Fischer, American Family Association / Focal Point-AFR Talk, joins Thom Hartmann. Gay marriage had a huge - and somewhat surprising - day at the Supreme Court. Earlier this morning - the Court said that it wouldn't hear appeals from five states challenging federal court rulings that struck down their same-sex marriage bans. Without getting too much into the weeds - this means that gay marriage is now legal in all five of those states - Indiana - Oklahoma - Utah - Virginia and Wisconsin. In the spirit of Jesus, shouldn't conservatives embrace gay marriage? Marriage is a conservative idea and same-sex marriage is all about preserving the family and empowering people to create families.

Why Texas Is the Worst Place for Ebola to Strike First

Wendell Potter, Deadly Spin, joins Thom Hartmann. Of all the places for Ebola to strike first in America - Texas has got to be the worst. That's because the Lone Star State is a case study in everything that goes wrong when Republicans get to make decisions about public health. For starters - it's got the highest uninsured rate in the nation. Roughly one quarter of its adult population has zero - I repeat, zero - health insurance. And to make matters worse - that number probably isn't going to change anytime soon because Texas Governor Rick Perry has refused to expand Medicaid under Obamacare - trapping thousands in what's called the Red State donut hole. Texas also has no paid sick leave law - which means that if the guy cooking your burger just happens to come into contact with a deadly disease like - I don't know - Ebola - he can't take time off to go see the doctor without having to worry about losing his job. Whatever way you look at it - Texas is a public health disaster. So will it be able to handle Ebola?
