Republican Strategy or am I completely delusional?

When I look at a map of the U.S. that color-codes for Republican (red)/Democratic (blue) Governors, I see a strategically planned arrangement of states. Not for political reasons but for survival/economic reasons. Although many Republicans deny Climate Change is occurring, these maps reveal a different story. The Koch Brothers, having all the connections they do would have access to the same climate report information that the military does, but the military have been prevented from making best use of it. If they used it, that would confirm it.

America is not a racist country...

My fellow Americans,

If you believe that America is not a rascist country, please consider the following:

1) The first 12 Presidents of this country were slave owners--nothing racist there!

Addressing Pollution

I tuned in to the program a bit late because I just got home from work. I am interested in the topic of air pollution and what we can do to help.

Cobb County, Greg Abbott, Only Cops Kill Black People.

The remark wasn't funny. I agree with Tom Hartmann that it is a cultural issue. A Caucasian policeman attempting to inject levity into the situation is someone that is insensitive given today's environment of police shootings of Blacks proprotionately and per capita.

The officer has been suspended. He needs to be retrained before "hitting" the streets again. He probably needs to patrol with a senior Black officer that can provide him some insight into what the Black community experiences everyday in the Atlanta area besides the training.

Earth to Texas: This is what liberty from big government looks like

“We don’t need no stinkin’ guberment regulation, red tape or interference.” And we don’t need zoning and building codes, the absence of which allowed flood-prone areas to be developed for residential use. And, now that the rewards of this behavior are apparent to all, Texas politicians want us (the majority of communities where such precautions prevail) to help them put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

FDR's Statue Of Liberty speecc 1936

I would like to commend to all of you FDR's 1936 speech commemerating and rededicating the Staue Of Liberty on it's 50th anneversary. It is remarkable and only gains in sture with the years. This is especially true now!

Violence or Non Violence.

Charlottesville and Houston: the two extremes of human nature

Most people wrongly believe that it’s what others say and do, and what happens that makes them feel the way they do. But it’s really what we choose to think about such things, and in response to them.

One simple but important choice we have is what we focus on.

HOUSTON FLOOD just another PHOTO OP for TRUMPS 2020 reelection

WONDER if this will be another mismanagement mess like the corporate run RED CROSS, that received half a billion in HAITIAN AID donations and built 6 houses.

WORST flood in US history and NOT ONE article linking CLIMATE CHANGE to these events, instead we get 24/7 misinformation campaign. AMERICAS news sources should be classified as tabloid FLUFF.

Crime is not limited to losing a job

Listening on Aug. 30, I heard Thom assert what most Reps want you to believe (but unduly) that POTUS cannot be jailed for crime, which is antithetical to the Constitution prohibition of Nobility and pardon for treason. Federal judges thought so to their dismay. No person is immune for such acts other than illegally by their government coactors. One caller asked about "tolling" which relates to the statute of limitations, whereby Trump can be prosecuted after he is impeached or simply leaves office, causing abatement of the statute during such time, if Congress will or won't do it's duty...

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.
