September 2015


The business world is over run by sociopaths and CEO Martin Shkreli is the poster boy for this month. You remember Martin , the young smug face little rich kid , who made his millions by sowing destuction helped along by a perverted sick American business environment , aided and abetted by American government. Martin was the little punk that took a 62 year old life saving discovery and jacked the price from $13.50 a pill to $750 a tablet overnight, a 5500% increase.

The State of Georgia Murdered A Woman Today

I hope the pro lifers in Georgia are happy today after their state committed state sanctioned murder...

America’s eroding quality of life: “3 million children might see Social Security benefits cut.”

This from Social Security works:

For 80 years, Social Security has paid out every benefit owed to every eligible American in full and on time. But if Congress does not do their job, the Social Security Disability Insurance trust fund – which protects 11 million Americans, including more than 1 million veterans and 3 million children – will see its reserves depleted in late 2016, resulting in a 20% cut in disability benefits.


In effect it's looking like either you are for Thom Hartmann's worldview, or you're for war.

Securitization allows Washington to take money from the elderly needed for bare subsistence living and give it to rich wall street investors and Obama can stop this if he wanted to.

And this is money the ELDERLY PAID into the Federal Government so that Washington could give it back at a later date to help them cover the costs associated with just barely surviving in America, that is money for food, medicine, and minimal amount of “shelter.”

As a fledging fascist state Washington, for now, must use a complex subterfuge to achieve bald faced fascism, or “reverse robin hood schemes” but that will soon change as the Oligarchs and the 1% staffers continue to demand more and more and more.


From my perspective, firstly the problem is with the, if not billions, then hundreds-of- millions of machines worldwide engineered to take in cool sweet air and in turn exhaust hot acidic gases.

So if for example a densely populated urban area like Manhattan or Hong Kong had an all-electric transportatioin infrastructure, I can imagine the citizens there might like energetically oppose any proposals that threatened going back to cars, trucks train & buses that burned fossil fuels.


Most governments run by right wingers over time become IMPOTENT. Because right wing conservatives nuetralize their ability to carry out the affairs of their citizenry.

Would a Democratic President Wield Power as Ruthlessly as Trump?

Thom plus logo Interestingly, the current divide in the Senate gives us an insight into how powerful a genuinely progressive Democratic president could be, and how much he or she could get done. As we saw yesterday, the Republicans voted repeatedly to participate in a cover-up of Donald Trump's crimes.
