Quite a few years ago, a small group of my neighbors decided to put on a forum to talk about Freedom of the Press. At the time, Mr. Hartmann was local, and we invited him to be a speaker. He did it! We were so honored and grateful, and that afternoon a lot of people came to the forum at our local college, and all were listening and learning from him. I recently switched from Comcast to Direct TV, and now get his TV show! Hooray, that makes me so happy!
Please, Thom, continue to keep us all informed.
This message is for Thom and anyone else who may be interested...I wrote and sent this to a few Progressive members of Congess, and a few other publications.
As a lifelong Democrat I’m writing because I believe Republicans have, in effect, shut down our government, whereby no progressive legislation endorsed by more than at least 51% of Americans, stands a chance of passage in Congress.
Anyone who discovers they are victims of identity theft should immediately report this to the IRS. They will issue you a special PIN # to use when filing your tax return. As a professional, I had one taxpayer who had one this last filing season and we had several returns rejected because someone else had filed a tax return using their name and SS#. You should also contact the 3 credit bureaus and have them issue fraud alerts. I would also strongly suggest that you get your free credit report annually from the credit bureaus.
LiveScience.com is taking part in propaganda. For instance, when the news of C02 levels hitting 400 ppm LiveScience.com immediately ran a story on how experts at Oxford University had determined that the increase in average global temperature wouldn’t “be that bad”.
The 99% is more than welcome to die as a consequence of further wealth concentration.

The biggest low-wage employer in the United States isn't Walmart or McDonald's, but the United States government. Federal contractors employ 2,000,000 people at poverty-level wages, more than Walmart and McDonald's combined.
Problems I have with it. When it spills taxpayers have to pay to clean it up. Thank Cheney for that. Oil companies invest their money in trying to drill deeper, clean up mianly the same as 30 yrs ago. Getting back tar sands is like peanut butter can you imagine what's that gonna do to the pipes. People in Canada don't like it. That's why they can't build a shorter pipeline to the west coast. Why should they they use our Country as a dump because we have stupid people that believe things they hear the corporate media spout out and politicians.
cientists say the recent downturn in the rate of global warming will lead to lower temperature rises in the short-term.
Since 1998, there has been an unexplained "standstill" in the heating of the Earth's atmosphere.
Writing in Nature Geoscience, the researchers say this will reduce predicted warming in the coming decades.
But long-term, the expected temperature rises will not alter significantly.

"America must cope with this new devastating influence of wealth sanely
