You and Parker Palmer Share The Same Thought

Thom: We get you delayed here in Minneapolis on AM950. I just heard your response to a caller when you said "don't despair" and used the example of Elizabeth Stanton and the women's movement. They never lived to see the final fruits of their work, but it didn't stop them. I just finished doing an interview with Parker Palmer on his new book: Healing The Heart of Democray. He talks about how we need to live in the "tragic gap" of what we know is possible and where we are today. Your words were almost identical to his. I invite you to read the i

Where are the real Christians?

The following I sent to Senator McCain. Can youtell me where are the real Christian Republicans? Jesus said "I'm my brothers keeper" not my brothers "Master". As a U.S. Senator you are the "keepers of the people of America", so why is it that the Conservatives of the Republican party besy kissing the boots of the "money changers"? Why is it that the Conservative Republicans choose to take away Grand Ma's retirement funds and medical coverage in order to give Billionaires more gold and silver? Remember Jesus is watching.

The real cost of food stamps

Why do I keep going to work day in day out just so I can feed other people endless amounts of Lobster and Steak? Do I have enough left over to feed my family Lobster and Steak?

Sorry Moochers, but the gravy train ends August 2.

crazy right wing killer in SD, influenced by Hannity and Rush


Check ou the link to a man who started a killing spree in South Dakota that was to end with killing Obama while he was golfing. Their words are making killers.

3rd Party

I am registered as an indepedent. I changed from democrat some years ago, no reason in particular, most dissatisfaction with both parties and government. I vote regularly and vote democrat. I want to know if you think independents could form third party which appealed to center left and center right could form a new majority, are the numbers possible?

More of a liberal convert

TH is great to listen to. I am often surprised at how enlightening the hour(s) can be, and though some times he is off on his facts, nonetheless, I never have doubts that I am listening to a coherent person. Whereas, with most other talk radio shows, I rarely had a moment sanity (before I forever stopped listening).

My New Meme for Conservatives

Free Ride Conservatives - They like to live in the greatest country in the world, they just don't like to pay their membership dues.

Deadbeat Billionaires in America ...should be subpoenaed!

We've got a deadbeat billionaire problem in America. We keep giving billions in tax breaks to billionaires and meg-millionaires with the expectation they will "create jobs" with their massive personal fortunes. But they haven't followed through with their end of the deal. No jobs are being created! What? How can this be? The Republican's Vast Right Wing Echo Chamber continuously proclaims as Gospel that the super rich need special t

Does Obama fall for the Oldest Negotiating Trick in the Book?

One of the oldest tricks in the negotiating book is when you know you’re entitled to anything (or relatively little) but you start out anyway by asking for the Sun, the Moon and the Stars and then just proceed to squawk and be cantankerous until you invariably get the other party to give you something more than you were originally entitled to.

Assualt Launced On Environment: "Never let a crisis go to waste"

I recently received this from the Wilderness Society:

The Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, FY 2012 is one of the most anti-environmental pieces of legislation ever created. I urge you to vote against this bill, or demand that anti-environmental measures are removed from it.

Places, programs and policies that Americans have held dear for decades are at risk. Please don't allow your name to be associated with such a bill.

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
