hi tom. want to mention when CONservatives talk about capitalism they use it interchangeably with free enterprise. its a way they use to fool people that both are the same thing when they are really not. They do this because all they are really doing is protecting and advancing monopolies. as long as free markets are available things go great for the consumer with competition. Unfortunately many fall into the trap of debating issues along the lines that conservatives have defined rather than calling them out on the misnomers they are using.

Thom, the words you spoke at the beginning of your conversation with JB were so beautiful and articulate. He is my heart and #1 all-time favorite. Hours and hours and hours..... Thank you for such a nice surprise!
The death toll from wars the United States has carried out since WWll is more than 4,000,000. The importance of this number is to demonstrate on what scale the United States has waged war. This number is a conservative number. To come up with a number of the total dead from U.S. wars since WWll, is a way of grasping the destructive consequences of all this war making.

This post has been moved to the forum "Thom's nationally syndicated radio show", under the topic titled :
On the anniversary of Bin Laden's aasassination, let us remember why he was assassinated. The trial of Bin Laden would have revealed the true perpetrators, or at least the fact that Bin Laden had nothing or very little to do with 9-11. Why do the American public not demand a full accounting of what happened that fatefull day? Why do the American public run headlong with their leaders to invade other countries and kill thousands of innocent people based on obvious lies, half truths and deception?

To someone who had Ovarian cancer at 19, where my entire reproductive system was removed, and caught in time, I like to say Louise, my thoughts daily-morning and evening prayers will be with me for now on and everyone else who is sick too. God Bless. Let me know if you are and I will be praying for you too and your family.
Thom just spent minutes lecturing a caller about how SS is insurance and not a "retirement plan." At the same time, Thom and Bernie Sanders will talk until they're blue in the face about how the cap on SS earnings should be lifted above $110,100 (and allowed to float upwards) BUT neither will address whether or not the future benefits should be allowed to "float" upwards using the same existing formula that is in place today... http://www.ssa.gov/pubs/10070.html . What a hypocrit.
