Not About Rush Limbaugh...

My apologies, this post isn’t about Rush Limbaugh, nor about some gas pipeline somewhere, nor about climate change, nor about any of the other pressing issues that have been on the front page of every newspaper from Podunk to Paduka and on every local radio and TV station for the last month or so and - as if that weren't enough - stories that must be repeated and pasted daily right here on Thom Hartmann Community.

Obama letting Climate Change rage unabated with view toward cramming Bush-Cheney 2005 Action Plan of faulty Carbon Sequestration down the People’s throat.

why the left cannot use soundbites and memes as the right does

In my opinion the attempt to use the same tactics as the right in this area are futile. People tend to speak of creating "memes," short phrases which encapsulate ideas or are designed to influence peoples' thinking in a certain direction, as something which anyone can do no matter what their perspective. But the difference between the right and left accounts for why the former is better able to appeal to people's reflexive reactions. Right-wing rhetoric is a defence of privelege and property.

Back From the Brink

They’re breathing a bit easier at the Unites States Department of Energy and, undoubtedly, the Oval Office. Two of the green tech companies the Obama Administration, through the Energy Department, had either given grants or provided loan guarantees are returning from the brink of bankruptcy. Technically speaking, both Beacon Power, the flywheel energy storage manufacturer, and Ener1, the parent company of lithium battery producer EnerDel, last year filed for Chapter 11 reorganization.

Timing???

Is it coincidence that Amnesty International issued its report on Iran at just this time?

I wish to question the orthodoxy of Sacrifice for Sin

On 10 March 2012, thousands of Tibetans and Tibet supporters round the world will take to the streets to commemorate Tibetan National Uprising. More than two dozen Tibetans protesting Chinese repression have set themselves on fire in the last year. The government in Beijing portrays them as societal misfits.

De-Incentivising Right Wing Authoritarianism (and the one thing the Conservatives get right more often than the Left)...

A leading progressive-light Thom Hartmann is fond of referring to Bob Altermeyer's book "the Authoritarians" and its sister book "Conservatives Without Conscience" by John Dean. Both are fantastic reads into the very puzzling contradictions of Conservative America. After reading these books, (and also classical works such as "The Authoritarian Personality" by Theodor W.

feeding the hungry

Hi Tom,

I really appreciate the struggle you so openly shared about feeding the hungry today. My view is that someone's got to be pretty desperate to beg for food or money. If they ask I give it to them with the thought that "there for the grace of G-d go I". Sometimes it's not much i.e $1 to $5 but it's something. I don't know who said "Ask and ye shall receive."
