Billionaires are HOARDERS

Lets get some billionaires on the hoarders TV show, & get them to explain/defend just how they are contributing to the nation that permitted them to accumulate such an extraordinary "hoard!" Listeners, Please jump in and contribute your ideas!!! Thanks!!

Effective Use of Donations

Same info as above for all (including Supreme Court Justices) for any perqs of non-monetary nature.

The State of the Union – The State of the World

Today, January 7, 2013, the USA (and the world) is in a holding pattern. The USA rejected the Neanderthals and Mitt Romney. We dodged a bullet!

Reality Check: Damage Awards from Oil Spills and Mortgage Felonies aren’t automatically what is actually paid out.


State’s Rights: Walker privatizing Public Education and to exempt same from State Testing.

How are you supposed to know whether or not a kid is getting an education - at all, much less an education better than he or she would have gotten at a similarly funded public school - at a Private For-Profit Charter School (paid for with a painful combination of public and private Taxpayer money$$$) when you exempt the For-Profit school from the S

Why is everyone so shocked!

Do you-Thom Hartmann listeners approve?

I have notice that no one is commenting about the New York Newspaper has done: release names; address; phone numbers to those who own guns. Does that mean you all approve of it?

A good full life's not enough?

Would it really be such a bad deal, if given a little luck, you had a life span of 85 years or so to stand on the planet and contemplate the universe? Then your little light went out, but of course, was replaced by other little lights that shone in their turn? I mean, this thing about the immortality of the soul is kind of overblown, isn't it? OK.

Political Theatre, Act 2 “The Debt Ceiling” will end with Wall St disadvantaging the 99% even more.

Trump - Dumb Luck or A Master Manipulator?
