The length of a piece of legislation is no excuse for not knowing what all is in it.

1,000 pages?! 2,000 pages? TOUGH SHIT! Boo hoo for you! Put down the god damn phone and stop fundraising and get reading. Still need more time? Then blow off a few of those gilded cocktail receptions sponsored by special interests and stay home and READ. Still need more time? Stay up all night reading.

Charles Schumer passes out money given to him by Wall St$$$ to other Democrats thereby circumventing the ultimate recipient$$$s’ legal obligation to report the funds.

Wall St gives the money to Schumer and Schumer gives it to other democrats. The democrats that ultimately receive the Wall St money from Schumer do NOT have to disclose this money and there being bribed by Wall St. Thanks Chuck ya’ schmuck

Don’t like Wall St’s strangled hold on Washington? Start by getting rid of their lackey Charles Schumer.

According to Allen Greenspan: “We’re not doing that well.”

The Economy?: it’s just an abundance of shitty jobs and persistent low gas prices – that’s it.

Be careful, it’s just an abundance of what are still predominately shitty jobs and persistent low gas prices that are at the root of the hot air Washington is trying to blow up Main St’s skirt….with some success apparently according to some consumer data.

Abject Bullshit: “Obama move on U.S. oil exports paves way for Canadian crude, too”

This is almost laughable if it wasn’t so transparent. Read the following excerpt, bearing in mind this is Big Oil we’re talking about, and what do you is going to happen:

“The risk of contaminating Canadian oil with a few drops of restricted U.S. crude, which accounts for most of what flows through U.S. oil pipelines and terminals, had deterred energy traders from attempting re-exports, they have said.

"Somehow I can't imagine John Kennedy saying, "yeah torture is a good thing!"

We basically have an entire political party committed to maintaining the reputation of George W. Bush and that reputation is not to be trapped into the same category as Richard Nixon, another Republican criminal. We have an entire political party dedicated to celebrating torture. What is that doing to America?" - Thom Hartmann

Will President Hillary Clinton Kill Legal Weed in 2017?

The air is thick in America with anticipation that Hillary Clinton will actually assume the nation's political throne. What is not understood by potential voters is how the future of legal marijuana will be handled by our country's leaders. Kansas and Nebraska taxpayers are already funding an expensive lawsuit directed at Colorado's implementation of recreational marijuana in a bold attempt to shut the entire law down.

Re: fiat money. No, actually

You said it and I agree. a bit complicted for a dummy like me, but money is created out of thin air by lending. This is where the banker sings "let it be" and adds a zero to the end of his ledger. And remember what x gov Corzine told the investigation about all the missing money at MF Global? This proves they do what they damn well please, and ergo, fiat money as it stands right now is a joke. That's not rain running down your leg.

Whats worse

Obama in the pews of Reverand Right

Robert Byrd an actual member of the KKK

Washington\Wall St Speaks: “How America’s Middle Class Dug Its Own Grave”

Silly peasants, its your own fault! Government is just there to .....?!

James Files and JFK

I've been surprised this hadn't come up in the past. I used to work at Stateville and knew Files. He refused to speak about who was involved in the Kennedy assasination until "certain" people had died and/or his daughter was out of the country...anyways....

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
