BP - Baby Dolphins Found Dead on Gulf Coast

A tide of dead infant dolphins has washed ashore along a 100-mile stretch of the Alabama and Mississippi coastlines in the past two weeks, and marine experts today said they believe last summer's Gulf oil spill may be to blame.

Obama condemns Bison to Extinction

The Obama government denied federal protection to the plains bison. This immense, shaggy mammal once roamed a wide swath of North America to the tune of about 50 million; now only a sad remnant survives -- about 20,000 bison in a handful of conservation herds.

FIGHTING BACK

I think Thom is a bit wrong about his take on resistence and how best to fight back. I appreciate the importance of messaging and I think Thom usually has a good sense of what works. But...

Tea Party is Not Ready for Prime Time

Teachers, nurses, firefighters, students, police officers and others protesting in Wisconsin have occupied the Capitol building and streets of Madison for the past nine days. Governor Walker caught in a prank call from one of the Koch (worse than Soros) brothers revealed that Wisconsin "is ground zero" in the fight against "the public-sector unions." He also said, "sooner or later there will be pressure on these [Democratic] senators to come back." OK…now what?

In support of labor

Saturday my wife and I will be marching in support of worker rights. I do not belong to a union. I have never been a member of a union. My father was a union member. I remember him explaining " collective bargaining not compulsory arbitration" to me even before I fully understood what it meant. Because of his decent, union wage, I was able to attend one of the finest public universities in the country. I owe what I have been able to achieve in life to what unions have done for average working families in this country.

Progressive Radio not available in New York Metro area

Progressive Radio is basically unavailable in the New York Metropolitan area.. I didn't even know there was such a thing as a radio talk show that wasn't radical right wing. It wasn't until my wife bought a Saturn with an XM radio that I found out that there was a radio station telling the truth about what is happening to our country. Before finding this wonderful radio staion I also though that Nancy Pelosi was the devil incarnate because of what I was hearing on the Sean Hennity show.

MONSANTO COZY WITH OBAMA/VILSACK WHITE HOUSE, GMO'S EVERYWHERE ARE THREATENING OUR (ORGANIC) FOODS

Thom, I have tried so many times to call into your show but it seems if you actually work 2 or 3 jobs like I do, I never have the time to wait. I have been an anti-GMO activist for the last 25 years and have a lot of anger and fear with recent GMO crop approvals: bio-corn, which will end up polluting the corn we eat (like Starlink corn did), sugar beets, and ESPECIALLY GMO alfalfa. I heard you had a food supply expert on and got excited when you asked her about Monsanto but she just brushed it off.

www.defendwisconsin.org to support the Wisconsin Protestors

This is the site that was "accidentaly" censored by the Capital Building's IT administrators. It lists local business supporters, volunteer requests, supply requests, etc... You can purchase groceries online and have them delivered to the Capital Building from Capital Market. Capital Market is listed on the site as a supporter (see links below).

Trump's Lies Are Killing Us

Thom plus logo Donald Trump keeps insisting in his rallies, as he did last night, that he has lowered prescription drug prices, is protecting people with pre-existing conditions, and is improving Medicare. While everybody knows that he lies a lot, these are among the most pernicious lies.
