Guess Who Hopes You Won't Vote for Hillary, and Getting On with the Real Revolution

Wow. There's been a really heated discussion on Thom Hartmann's site about whether we should follow Bernie Sander's and Thom Hartmann's explicit advice to support Hillary over any Republican in the general election, or to "be pure" and for all practical purposes, waste our vote (Yes, I have a strong opinion!). This would be a reasonable conversation given what's at stake, as long as some of the participants are not unknowing shills for Republican strategists. Why would I suggest that possibility? Read on.

What the Democratic Party Can Do To Get Me Back

Recently Thom asked:

What does the Democratic Party have to do to get us back? Or something like that, I may have the exact phrasing wrong but …. anyway

I couldn’t respond right then though I desperately wanted to, then I got busy. The more time that went by, the longer my answer got. Finally I am sitting down to give this question the attention it deserves. I hope it is not too late, I figure the conversation has since turned to other matters. In either case, it’s still worth answering.

Attention: Senator Bernie Sanders, Thom Hartmann and America,

What goes around, comes around...

I'm going to wax philosophical on y'all now ...

Danielle just said something that really resonates with me while she was guest-hosting on Thom's show. She and Shane do such a good job on that show while Thom is sitting in an airport somewhere that I almost don't miss Thom at all. She was talking about racism and said that she doesn't treat people like that because she doesn't want to be treated like that.

Republicans in classrooms...

Thinking back to my school days ... and that's a long time ago, I'm 66 years old and recently retired ... but way back in the 50s and 60s when I was in elementary school, junior high school and high school, there was a kid in every class who was a smooth talker and could talk that substitute teacher into almost anything, no matter how preposterous, that kid could make that ridiculous proposition sound almost reasonable, in a way.

Prince Prints: Black Royalty

A few months ago, I had just received Thom Hartmann’s outstanding book entitled “The Crash of 2016”. It was, and is, a profound work. In any event, I got on air with Thom to express my admiration for the book as it was extremely well written. Somewhere along the conversation, I told Thom that his writing skills made me want to hang up my ink, and likened the experience to when I saw Prince in concert during the Purple Rain tour here in Los Angeles. It was at the Fabulous Forum in 1985.

A positive message for Earth Day 2016

Many tests have been done on Gaia’s state-of-being, and they all come back ‘positive’.

Our one and only Mother Earth is sicker than hell, so ill that her ability to properly care for her wide variety of children is rapidly failing; and it is clear that her most celebrated species is to blame. Identifying the culprit doesn’t automatically fix the problem.

Petitions for Bernie Sanders to run as an Independent.

EVERYONE on FreeSpeechTV keeps talking about how many voters he will take away from Clinton, making Trump's road easier. This is a fallacy. Bernie has already drawn many Republican voters to his campaign. There is absolutely no evidence to suggest that he cannot draw more voters away from Trump than he does from Clinton, and can dominate with Independents.

How many Americans, Indigenous People around the world, or anybody else has DIED because of policy from Hillary Clinton that was shaped, all or in party by considerations$$$ for the Clinton Foundation et.al.?

Or how many times have Americans been put at risk by policy from Hillary Clinton that was shaped by considerations$$$ for the Clinton Foundation? For instance, nuclear anything.

Hillary's changing positions

Has Capitalism and The GOP Destroyed Religion?

Thom plus logo The number of Americans who called them selves Christian or religious has declined precipitously over the last decade, and the number of Americans who are "unaffiliated Christians", atheists, or unconcerned about religion or spirituality has increased.
