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...

Why I think 53% white women voted for Trump

Biblically indoctrinated women are more prone to believe that men are the better leaders. Men are the head of their familys, church, & state. I think the younger generation coming up will make good changes, but there is a reason the bible belt and red state go together. If my area of N. CA broke off into its own state it would turn into Arkansas. Poor, religious, and red.

Inspection- The Art of Deception

In his book, The Art of the Deal, Donald Trump talked about repeating a lie to close a deal. Now we're not even a year into his presidency I think the major problem with what he claimed is: unlike >typical Trump, he minimized what he actually does. It's not 3 times, or 4, or 10. It's perpetual. He just shifts from one lie to another. I think any truth he may tell: IF ANY, may be 3 times, though that may be a vast over estimation.

Drivers License Renewal

On today's show, Thom Harmann received calls from persons in North Carolina and Arkansas about "stars" on their newly renewed drivers license. I live in Texas and I received a similar letter requesting that I bring some additional forms of identification when I came in for renewal. I have had my license for over 50 years. I brought with me my passport and Social Security card and was prepared to show them to the clerk. She said that she didn't need to see that information and processed my license renewal without a problem. When I received it i

HiJack Our Government Back

Thomm,

Now is the time to secede, Texans: Welfare Queens Unite!

All of you bigmouth redneck Texas politicians who were being cute about secession during Obama's presidency may have a red carpet to separating from the USA. Go for it--dare to be great! This was a favorite wiseass notion by Gov. Rick Perry and got a silent pass by Gov. Greg Abbott. Where are these dudes now?

Cooling the Gulf with rain water evaporation.

To evaporate a pound of sea water, it takes about 1000 BTUs of heat. Therefore, for every cubic foot of land rained on by Harvey, would required 1000 times that in the Gulf of Mexico for each degree of change.

RACIAL HATE SHOULD NOT BE IN VOGUE

Speaking in terms of those seeking peace and individuals proclaiming white supremacy, two opposing sides, conflicting with different opinions, may find that intermingling during a time of unrest is not the worthiest panacea when physical anguish halts cognitive reasoning.

As in the years of juba on the southern lands of the U.S.A., there were days of communication between Black slaves and their overseers. One day was reserved for worship and the other for dance.

THE PROGNOSIS IS ALL BAD

SO in effect WHAT'S HEALTHY. We have learned the average lowly tomato is sprayed with something like 70 chemical compounds by the time it reaches your dining table. That ORANGE JUICE you drink is laced with multiple chemicals due attempts to fight a blight that's destroying Florida crops. GMO'S , Frankenstein foods have polluted almost every staple, from grains to rice to potatoes. MEAT products contain growth hormones, pesticides, a barrage of antibiotics and every chemical concoction that can make the product more profitable.

There's a 1 in 20 Chance of the Apocalypse. Shouldn't We Act Now?

A new study published in Science argues that we as a civilization need to move "rapidly" -- as in almost immediately -- towards a carbon emissions free future if we are to have any chance of holding off runaway global warming:
