Be afraid, be very afraid...of Donald Trump?

Unfortunately, I don't think Thom realizes the irony of the fact that he's adopting the mantra he used to raíl against. (See also:

RE; racist can't stay away from Neshoba County Fair, Mississippi

Donald Jr. will attend the Neshoba County Fair in Philidelphia MS. This is a requirement for all racist politicians after Reagan's appearance. I just thought this is ironic.

Hillary vs Trump Vs Jill, Neoliberals & what people in bubbles don't get

The fact is the lowest or worse trust & favor-ability ratings for a Democratic candidate in recent history belongs to Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump cannot be trusted, he is known as a liar and worse, has lower ratings too. When you combine how terrible Trump is and Hillary's "Ad Spending Update: Clinton Outspends Trump $57M to $4M" she should be wiping the floor with Trump but is not.


It is imperative, that we get rid of these terrible trade deals that America has made with outside forces. We're fortunate that Bernie Sanders had his platform adopted by the DNC, and that is why I'm willing to get behind Hillary at this moment. Donald Trump speaks about ridding us of these terrible trade deals, but that does not mean that HIS deal is going to work for America. His deal would encompass banning Mass amounts of people from our shores, criminalizing groups of people and according to him murdering the families of those who are criminalized.

dysfunction - American style

The only dividing line that has ever existed in America is Race.
No royalty, no official religion, race was the perfect why to
decide who got the benefits of the America. If you descended
from Europeans you and all of your relatives would be on the
right side of that line.

When some people decided that slavery was a reasonable
economic model, they limited slavery to African-Americans.
Racism was the rationalization of that slavery.


Three systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich have taken a database listing 37 million companies and investors worldwide and analyzed all 43,060 transnational corporations and share ownerships linking them. They built a model of who owns what and what their revenues are and mapped the whole edifice of economic power.


That woman truly went up on stage last night and plagiarized Michelle Obama's speech.

Repubs Win the Week

The smoke screen is so thick you can't see the disaster beyond. Next week when the "scandal" of plagerism is but a fleeting memory Republicans will relish the fact of their escape from scrutiny. Wiping their collective brow, proclaiming "man that was close," while the nation discusses the "merit" of, shall we call it a campaign stumble or a ruse de guerre, you be the judge, during what must clearly be the most explicit spectacle of advocacy for all of the worst behaviours known to man. Otherwise known as the Republican Convention.

We can't let our disgust for what Republicans are saying at their convention blind us to how well they are actually choreographing it, and messaging

That's pretty much all I have to say. It is quite appauling what they are saying, but unfortunately, it's organized in a way, and being done in a way, that may be quite effective with the American public. Even if it is total bullshit. These slogans, i.e. Make American Safe Again, Make America Work Again, etc. We know there's no substance to it, and if anything their policies would do the opposite, but sadly, this kind of bumper sticker stuff works on the American population.

Dear Republicans: What are the odds bullets & mortars killing Benghazi victims were made with Republican USA Hands?

Whenever people are killed by munitions around the world I have to wonder how many American owned company CEOs profited from those Deaths. Anyone who would profiteer from death (& weapons manufacturers are but a few -- when you consider "health care" corporations, etc.) should be held accountable if their bullets or bombs are used to kill fellow citizens, noncombatants, or allies, like the embassy staff in Libya at Benghazi... (Wait -- is Benghazi in China or Russia? Ha!

The Thom Hartmann Program - Aug 30th 2018

It seems it's all racism, all the time w/the GOP...Neo-Nazi robocall hits Iowa on Molly Tibbett’s murder: “KILL THEM ALL. ” Richard Wolff drops by about the National Debt. Is it a disaster or an OK thing? Also - Trump & The National Enquirer - Is the Economy Here To Serve Us Or Are We Here to Serve the economy?
