  • America YOU'RE being HELD CAPTIVE by a RICH and WEALTHY FEW   1 day 17 hours ago

    I have my ATM card programmed and covered to withdraw the maximum of $2,000 per day for a maximum of 20 days. I am very happy about this because I have mine last week and I have used it for $ 2,000. Mr. John Siphas gives the card to help the poor and needy, although it is illegal but it is rather nice and it is not like others scam pretending to have the ATM cards blank. And no one gets caught when using the card. Get yours from it. Just send an email to johnsiphas@gmail.com

    ENOUGH OF TRUMP’s DAYS - {a limerick}

    These hundred days are enough.

    By now we’ve seen his stuff: -

    - Huff and puff,

    dissemble and bluff,

    and actions galore to rebuff.

    BLACK HOLE - {a rhyme}

    They gather at “Mar-a-Lago”,

    where Trump’s a bizarre demagog-o

    who presides like a czar

    while he runs a bazaar

    where he sells our nation’s soul.

    {Trump is our nation’s black hole.}

    MIXED METAPHORS - {a rhyme}

    Trump boils up a bubbling stench

    {from stews of healthy ingredients bereft},

    and messes things up with a monkey wrench

    {not delicate tools used in manners deft},

    and coaches his game with a third-string bench

    {of players who lack intellectual heft}.

    The swamp is not drained. He’d rather entrench

    the reptiles who engage in yuuge-scale theft.

    He wrestles us down with a choke-hold clench.

    We should replace him with a prez from the Left.

  • Are We Going To Have A Shutdown?   2 days 37 min ago

    dtodd560 #4:

    Sure sounds like a good idea, anything to produce more jobs at home ...that is, in a sane country not run by psychopaths! Trouble is, akin to patients taking over the asylum, the Republican Party -- headed by a megalomaniac with a tin-pot dictator complex -- now controls all three branches of government. Good ideas will die a quick death!

    An even bigger trouble for everyday workers and taxpayers is that Republicans' most influential donors are tax-dodging, profit-at-all-cost, economic globalists, who could care less about the plight of lazy American workers whining about pathetic little jobs that don't pay enough to buy enough shiny little objects.

    In fact, the more that workers suffer financially, the more the fabulously wealthy owners of transnational mega-monopolies thrive. Low wages, no regulations, and cheap imports are the key -- as long as the wage slaves still have enough credit to keep taking on more debt and to keep buying shiploads of over-priced, poorly-made trinkets and baubles.

    When the working poor (that's most of us) have nothing left to give, let the sun bleach their worthless bones. Why would cold, calculating predators give a damn about useless prey drained of blood and stripped of flesh? The quicker unproductive consumers of precious resources die off, the better for everyone still standing -- healthcare, Republican style! Besides, "there's a sucker born every minute" to replenish the stock.

    Suenos88: I'm obviously not a lawyer or a constitutional scholar either, but doesn't impeachment focus on the principal (Trump)? And can't it potentially result in the removal of the man from his position (and not necessarily the entire administration)? And IF there is a grand plan to give this individual just enough rope to hang himself, and then continue forward with the rest of the structure in tact (including our most recently istalled SCOTUS Justice) wouldn't that be the cat's meow? When Trump's approval rating hits 18 percent, nobody will be sorry to see him go, and I doubt that there will be riots protesting the installment of Pence in the Oval Office on some fine point of law. Especially in an era when our political elites feel quite comfy in writing their own rules.

    Complicity is collusion & collusion is treason - from Cornell Univ. Law School:

    18 U.S. Code § 2381 - Treason

    Current through Pub. L. 114-38. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.)

    prev | next

    Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(2)(J), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)

    ​I'm not a lawyer or constitutional scholar...I like doing a bit of research reading &/or listening to independent non-corporate media. MSNBC - Rachel Maddow: magnificent!

  • Are We Going To Have A Shutdown?   2 days 3 hours ago

    I apologize that I'm changing the topic to: INVALIDATING THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. When​ the day comes that Trump & Trump & Co. are proven to have colluded with the Russians during the campaign, the verdict would be "Treason". Therefore, in consequence, a new president & administration - all Trump nominations/confirmations, appointments, signed bills, Executive Orders would be as invalid as the treasonous President who set this all in motion.

    As opposed to impeachment, which has no chance in Congress, treason is a crime,ends the entire Trump administration. Saves our democracy.

  • Are We Going To Have A Shutdown?   2 days 3 hours ago

    More obfuscation by Trump and Company! The 1375 lb gorilla in the room remains his collusion with Putin et. al. during the 2016 election. First it was the big Trumpcare fiasco. Then it was his incineration of some poor farmer's field 500 yards from the Syrian airstrip in response to a chemical weapons attack after he gave both Russia and Syria enough advance warning of the strike to allow them to remove all equipment and personnel to safe locations (does anyone seriously believe this was anything other than theatrics?). And now we have a looming government shutdown and "THE WALL". Come on, folks. Think about it. This SOB is a Grand Master at slight of hand, but others, Namely Uncle Mitch, are far more intelligent and cunning. My personal belief is that he will be charged with complicity in the Russian meddling and impeached. Then, the "real" GOP candidate, Mike Pence, will step in and "appear" to be a rational alternative to the hip shooting, orance Shit Gibbon, and we will be on a fast track to the far right Republican agenda. The sad thing is that we (the great unwashed) just keep chugging that Fox, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC and yes, PBS Kool Aid. I'm sickened by the stupidity of the American people.

  • Are We Going To Have A Shutdown?   2 days 3 hours ago

    The increase in military spending is just as asinine and wasteful as the wall! Why doesn't Schumer demand Trump back down on that insanity too?

  • Are We Going To Have A Shutdown?   2 days 4 hours ago

    Thom, off topic a little...is there an opening for meaningful tax reform that may benefit manufacturing workers? What if marginal tax rates are increased, mainly for the upper brackets, but at the same time, we make goods manufactured in the U.S. tax deductible? It would have to be non-food items, maybe mostly durable goods? It would incentivize the wealthy to spend their fortunes rather than bank it, and it would subsequently boost good manufacturing jobs here in the U.S. Goods could be ranked for what percentage of the product was made in the U.S., and that amount would be deductible. Thoughts??

    He'll blame whatever happens on the Dems.

    Then again, he could change his mind again. Not like it has not happen before.

  • Are We Going To Have A Shutdown?   2 days 5 hours ago

    NICE TRY anti science GUMBO. Take your right wing corporate chemistry and stuff it. It's SOOO safe 19 countries have banned it. Most of the studies that cite its safe were paid for either directly or indirectly by big chemical corporations, the science of fraud. You know the safe bullshit corporations tell us, like big oil tells us that their products are safe. Safe like the tap water Flint Michigans republican Rick Snyder governor said it was safe to drink. So safe big business has successfully stopped manufacturers from being forced to disclose GMO's in their labeling, so safe we can't be told we are eating GMO's.

  • Daily Topics - Tuesday April 18th, 2017   2 days 11 hours ago

    Don't waste time with Breibart guy. Your session with him today 4/25/17 made health care and tax policy a big joke. Hey, these policies actually affect people's lives and deaths.

    HIs answers are largesse from the wealthy, charity, etc. His example of Catholic sisters running hospitals is from another century. Nuns provided close to free labor, those days are gone. He had nothing to offer.

    I was offended by the rube and hayseed comments. Keeping the divides alive is bad and keeping the divide between urban and rural people is as bad as the poor white/black divide. Helps the big money folks, keeps the rest of us "at each other" instead of directing our energies towards the the power elite, who just keep on running things to their advantage.

    WHAT the HELL is going on at ThomHartmann.com ? Today is Tuesday April 25th and the Hartmann site hasn't allowed an update since the 20th of the month. Is someone trying to destroy participation? If that is true, why not be honest and shut the blog site down.

  • The Bizarre Experience of Watching Cable News in America on Earth Day   2 days 14 hours ago

    What we have to do now. Follow the Money.

    We have to havea full transparent monetary system as nothing breeds appropriate behaviour faster than the light of public scrutiny .Visibility is another word for truth a famous Master teacher told us this a few Millenia ago we didn't listen ? Now we have to or its game over .

    Tis is the problem ....Greed .....A manufacturing of poverty with the tools of greed that's pretty much hidden from everyone !!!!

    The truth will set you free was not just a passing thought it was ment to be implemented to evolve society .

New Republican Healthcare Plan Is So Bad That Even Republicans Don't Want It


Republicans inched closer to a deal on repealing Obamacare yesterday, as the House Freedom caucus OK'd a new version of the American Health Care Act which is actually worse than the one that couldn't pass Congress back in March.
