July 26, 2010 - The Doctor And His Fishing Pole

The doctor from the National Doctors Tea Party proudly confessed that he accepted a fishing pole from a patient in exchange for the patient care that day. This confession resulted from Thom's question about "would you accept a chicken for payment?", and seemed to cause Thom some pause when he heard the response.

Following up with the doctor to ask him how a patient would pay for cancer treatment with fishing poles, the doctor sidestepped the question with various references to "Medicaid", etc.

July 26, 2010 - Thom's Show and the "N" Word

While listening to Thom's show on Free Speech TV this morning, one of the callers, during his comments, used the "N" word while speaking. The stunned look on Thom's face as he dialed down the volume and cut the speaker off was for me a disappointment.

Thom - you take on a wide range of controversy on your Program. I respect you for everything you do. But this morning, I lost just a sliver of that respect. Not nearly enough to make me quit listening.

Let's Call Where We're Headed What It Is

Let's face it. And while we're doing that, let's not shy away from using the word that best describes where we're headed—fascism.

Target has personhood - but do I? Meetup-Boycott Target

Target publicly donated $150,000 to the Republican candidate for governor in Minnesota. Many of Target's customers are women who favor strong education and a fair tax system. Why would they risk alienating the people who tend to pull the blue lever? Because they have personhood and we don't. For more writing go to Meetup - Boycott Target. Sign in as a member even if you cannot attend. We need to create grassroot competition to Walmart & Target & Comcast, etc.


Thom Hartmann was missed at the PDA Grassroots Leadership Conference held in Cleveland July 23-25th. But Thom, you received loud, thunderous applause for the work you do for the Progressive Cause. Thank You.



The shills for each party insist that they "know" how tax cuts impact federal revenue. The trouble is: They offer two differing points of view on it.

Now, it isn't very complicated: Either tax cuts reduce revenue, are revenue neutral, or add to revenue. Simple enough, right?

Then why can't we citizens find out the FACT? Why can one economist shill say one thing convincingly and another say just the opposite just as convincingly?

THOM: Have a show devoted to PROVING THE FACT.

Florida Recount for Gore?

Thom mentioned on Friday that the New York times had reported that Gore would have won the election and thus Bush's presidency was illegitimate. I did a google search and found multiple articles from the New York Times that stated that using the rules the Gore camp set up, Bush still would have won the recount and thus the Supreme Court did not elect George Bush as so many on the left have spouted for the past 10 years. Thom you are an intelligent man, but not an honest one. I'm surprised that no one in

Ethical Dilemma

I would like to discuss an ethical dilemma I believe ties the liberal mind into a paralyzing mobius loop.

Preposition A: Liberals believe that Homosexuality is genetic. True/False?

Preposition B: Liberals believe a womens right to "choose" is hers and hers alone? True/False?

Hypothetical given Prepositions A & B are True: Scientists in the near future fully map Human DNA and find the gene that enables Homosexuality. A woman can abort her child on the basis of it being homosexual with no preconditions or impediment?

The U.S.A. is the Worlds largest Exporter.

Democracy Itself Is on Trial
