Citizen's united should mandate honesty

The problem with citizen's united is it does not mandate honesty. If dishonest campaign ads were illegal it would improve the

sort of elected officials, local and national.

Book recommended by Thom

Thom recommended "The Geographer". Anyone know who the author is or the correct name? I read Ishmael, by Daniel Quinn, another book Thom recommends-it was terrific! Thanks.



Charles and David Koch each own 42% Of GEORGIA-PACIFIC.

Optimists don't read this, it might disturb you.

I'm 65 and retired into poverty. For years i worked with people, and studied personality disorders. Narcissism is fascinating, in that often very successful, financially well off men are narcissists. Fewer women are narcissists than men. We often admire these men and promote their success as an expample for others. Unfortunately, these people lack empathy, compassion, and are not altruistic. These are the people who give to charity ony if it is a write off.

Ike the "Independent Contractor"

The plaintive plea of Ike, who is struggling to make a living, while being taken advantage of by "job creators" in the construction trades brought tear to my eyes in the first hour of Thom's Friday program. We are in even deeper trouble in American than even most of Thom's listeners realize. We are dealing with pure greed and evil on the part of the anti-government, anti-social, anti-human hypocrites who call themselves Republicans and Tea Party members.

UN report: Palestinian kids abused, tortured, used as human shields by Israelis

UN report covers ten years of Israeli behavior toward Palestinian children.

A Palestinian child can be put in prison for a 20-year-sentence for throwing rocks. Children have been put in solitary confinement for long periods.

When Israeli adults abuse any child, it is unacceptable. Their claims of a perpetual war against over half Israel's population is no excuse for this abuse, past or present!

Unacceptable, degenerate behavior of Israel must be stopped.
