The beginning of SALEM Uganda

Thom Hartmann worked with Salem International in Uganda. Here's a video of the construction. I don't know if Thom is in any of the pictures. Maybe you can spot him.

Natural Gas is Not Temporary Fix

Thom in today's program was supporting natural gas as a temp substitute for oil. Anyone see "Now" PBS show this past weekend, featuring how toxic the drilling for natural gas is to environment ?

Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps

In one hour of Thom's show (4-6) numerous items worth hearing (good, happy things) were mentioned, not the least of which was the incomparable Dr. Bronner's Soap. There is some fascinating history attached to Dr. Bronner, his soap, his politics, his spiritual self and the outstanding model for the way to do business right that the company exemplifies today... I wrote about it some years ago and have been an enduring fan of the product(s) since... You guessed it...

REAL National Health Care Reform is long overdue

Is the Current Health Care Bill nothing but yet another Bail-Out for Big Corporations?

America is number one in something: genital mutilation

If you listen to the righties you would think that the government getting between you and your doctor would be the end of all modern medicine. Our usual response was the obvious answer that the insurance industry is already in the way. What about the hospitals? When are we going to get them out of the way. They are willing to mutilate the genitals of over half the of one day old newborn boys in this country for no reason other than money and profit. If you haven't figured out what I'm talking about yet it's circumcision. The American associ

Gold and Silver Manipulation

Hi Thom, I have never blogged before, but I wanted to now as I think we are in the midst of the biggest financial scandal of all time, dwarfing the Madoff scandal. This is the manipulation of the Gold and Silver markets worldwide by the biggest financial players, the likes of JP Morgan Chase and HSBC. I am not a good enough writer to detail this crime in progress, but I would urge you to go to the Gold Anti Trust Action Committee (GATA) website for an introduction to this.

Privacy, Civil Liberties, Posse Comitatus Repeal, Whatever

Of course the Bush administration's warrantless wiretapping programs are still illegal, even after President Obama inherited them. And of course the 13 IQ 13%ers who call themselves "tea partiers" will giggle, smirk and protest anything you (the media, collectively) present as "Obama's illegal surveillance" or similar but you'll alienate the middle, if not from yourself, then from the issue of civil liberties because we all know very well that President Obama's worst offense on this subject is reversing Bush policies too slowly.

The Powell Memo

This is a post I wrote this morning on a thread about lobbyyists. I want to preserve it, is all. It's part of my long term narrative explaining to myself how we got from the brief moment in the sixties where there was a semi drug induced outcry from the masses in the long, industrializing propaganda process that's created this corporatized, globalized, technologized civilization in which human beings have become little more than parts of a giant machine. A machine tha

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?
