Remembering the REAL OBAMA PRESIDENCY

The killing of supposed 'terrorists' by Obama drone strikes, got so bad , that two weeks after the U.S. killed American citizen Anwar Awlaki with a drone strike in Yemen, the Americans did the same to his 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, ending the teenager's young life along with his 17-year-old cousin and seven other people. Asked about the strike that killed the 16 year boy, Robert Gibbs a senior adviser to the president's campaign suggests he should've "had a more responsible father."

Medicaid for Work

Thom, great topic today.

should the alternate economy (not the plantation houses economy) develop a whole series of alternate jobs for the Medicaid recipients?

I see lots of volunteer organizations that log recipients into work slots. These could be healthy places to work, not like Walmart or McD's. They could require work similar to what was expected of "Brownie" who did a heck of a job during Hurricane Katrina.

Newer World Order

Hi Thom, love your show.

Is there any movement or progress to forge new communities in the continental USA? The "New World Order" a la Cheney is bound to collapse.

So it would seem to reason that there will be new formations and alliances that grow through the rubble of a failing system.

Which new formations seem to be arising in the land?

Why our present economic model emerges .

According to our society ,profit is the most important thing . Important social services get cut because they say we can’t afford them .Schools get cuts,healthcare gets cut benefits to our mentally ill and disabled get cuts. Why ?

The thought that we can’t afford a civil society is what is causing our society to no longer be civil.

Attention: THOM HARTMANN, SPEAKER PELOSI, AND AMERICA,

Trumps physical and mental health

Ronny Jackson and any other doctor who examines Trump fear for their life ,and their livelihood, so of course whomever the doctor is, no matter how much integrity they have, will say he's in excellent health, even while its obvious he is not. Besides mental issues he is overweight, and it seems he eats a horrible diet, so to say he's in excellent health can't be right, maybe fair to good, but excellent is a lie, or ignorant. Though I have known many people whose doc says they are healthy even while having a long list of issues. And many docs are unhealthy themselves .

MR. PRESIDENT

I am not conscience-stricken to give access to comprehension that I once believed that Trump and Administration would take up a position to respect and fulfill the many essentials necessary for human growth in this country. I believed this because so many of us are not receiving substantial income and benefits. I reasoned with that because he is a successful business person, who obviously knew how to ‘crunch numbers’ and would bring capitalism into alignment for everyone’s financial success and peaceful survival.

OVERPOPULATION and CLIMATE CHANGE

In third world countries it the norm to want large families. But these are countries with little or no social programs and a high early death rate. If you live in one of these countries, big families assure parents when they get old they'll have care, since the state does nothing for them.

name for the guy currently creeping around the Whitehouse

Like Voldemorte, I've been unable to use his name, so I've been calling him:

'The Orange Menace'.

FOURTH TIME IN RECENT MEMORY Part 2

THIS will be the FOURTH time in recent memory the these right wing Republican conservatives had to resort to underhanded tactics (treason) to WIN the presidency. In 1980 Ronald Reagan colluded with Americas sworn enemy the Ayatollah of Iran, to hold US Embassy hostages till after the 1980 election with Jimmy Carter to gain political advantage. Part of the deal was the Reagan as President would sell Iran weapons in exchange for undeclared cash and that cash would be secretly diverted to fund the Contra death squads in Central America.

Organized Money Is Dangerous To Democracy

The question that is constantly being asked, particularly on the talking heads on television, is "what do the Democrats have to do to regain political power?" What does it take?
