WHY I AM ASKING FOR YOUR SUPPORT AT PATREON?

Your support of the program is invaluable. Producing the Thom Hartmann Program is a labor of love for the team, but doesn't come without cost. We supply the program to non-profit, community and volunteer radio and cable stations across the US. However, this isn't cost-free and being a supporter through Patreon means you can help us to meet some of the bills, to allow us to continue free supply to the non-profit sector.

As a way of saying thank you, we would like to give you something back for your support at various levels. Every weekday, the live Thom Hartmann Program three hour program is recorded exclusively for Patreon supporters. Unedited, the full three-hour video will be right here on the Patreon page, within a couple of hours of the end of the live program. And we're also providing extra videos exclusive to sponsors.

This is for Louise and everyone else

To someone who had Ovarian cancer at 19, where my entire reproductive system was removed, and caught in time, I like to say Louise, my thoughts daily-morning and evening prayers will be with me for now on and everyone else who is sick too. God Bless. Let me know if you are and I will be praying for you too and your family.

Social Security INSURANCE. Thom so distorts the truth...

Thom just spent minutes lecturing a caller about how SS is insurance and not a "retirement plan." At the same time, Thom and Bernie Sanders will talk until they're blue in the face about how the cap on SS earnings should be lifted above $110,100 (and allowed to float upwards) BUT neither will address whether or not the future benefits should be allowed to "float" upwards using the same existing formula that is in place today... http://www.ssa.gov/pubs/10070.html . What a hypocrit.

Double Dribble or Intentional Foul?

Just yesterday I intercepted a letter from God the Father (there are no secrets on Internet these days). Here it is, in part but without its original red letters:

Obama’s EPA$$$: Official who said EPA should “crucify” polluters forced to resign.

The worst environmental President E - V - E - R!

Obama had better not need to come a knocking on my thunder dome! oh hell no!

Question to everyone and all are encourage to reply

Surpose Vice President Al Gore got in as President instead of George Bush. Memos spoke that Osama Bin Laden will be using airplanes to attack America and 9-11 took place under his watch. President Gore's watch. Do you feel he would have got us into 2 wars and hunt down Osama Bin Laden too? Remember his boss, President Clinton, had that chance, but didnt take it. (Remember the ABC Movie, the Clinton Adminstration wanted that cut from the program and ABC didnt) So I ask. Would Gore do it or would he ask the United Nations do the work? Please explain in detail your comments.

May Day Anniversary

Two previously drafted communications were made public that day nine years ago.

One, delivered by a man professing Great Christian Beliefs, now referred to as the Mission Accomplished speech begins:

“Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the Battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed. And now our coalition is engaged in securing and reconstructing that country.

A Painful Ending a Life Decision

Late in the evening of April 30, 1973, I gave birth to a full-term, over 8 lb. baby boy. He was immediately put on a respirator. I gave the okay for a surgery. Only part of one of his lungs was working. The diaphragm hadn't formed enough to separate the compartment for heart and lungs from the one for digestive organs. I gave the okay to have the respirator removed. He died on May 1st. Still hurts.
