Glass–Steagall Act - 34 pages
Dodd-Frank - 2,200 pages of lobbyist influenced garbage with the result of hurting small banks and consumers more than the banks that caused the problem.
People should understand that the longer troops are in a war, the more brutal and savage it becomes. Having said that, I believe that Thom is dead wrong when it comes to the draft. I was drafted in 1969 and I must say that the amount of deferments and backroom deals by the rich and politically connected to keep THEIR kids out of it was staggering. If the draft came back, the same thing would happen that the poor and middle class men would end up going while the " OTHERS" would get off the hook. I would enjoy a debate on just what deferments would be allowed.
Why don't Republicans address ILLEGAL OXYCONTIN USE that insurance companys pay for??? Gee...I wonder...Remind listeners that this hypocrite Limbaugh has the NERVE to speak about the issue of women being covered for simple,legal,hormone pills while he was busy in the past ILLEGALLY pumping down the opiate narcotic, controlled-substance, Heroin-like,high-inducing drug,Oxycontin. REALLY??? Listeners need to know the fact that oxycontin is a narcotic opiate that the medical field states gives a heroin-like high and that is why it is so heavily addicting...HEROIN!
If only the world community had stopped Germany's atrocities against Africans in Namibia -- would the world have prevented the Holocaust of World War II?
This video clarifies Germany's genocidal policies in Namibia as discussed in the book "Germany's Black Holocaust 1890-1945" by Firpo W. Carr, Ph.D.
On Friday's Show Sen. Sanders is talking about seeing if the Government should run our dental care. Are you for that or do you feel they should have put it in when they passed the Obama Health plan two years ago?
Suppose you were given a chance to redo the U.S. Constitution . What would you add? And what would you keep in it?
Hi Thom, first of all, I hope you don't dismiss this article because it mentions SaLuSa and Galctics. Of course I'll humorously ask you why you have a math test for securty, to check if the person is human.....!!! SaLuSa is an individual I believe and the Galactics are a group of extraterrestrials, who speak as one, channeled by some amazingly gifted individuals who contribute to .....the2012scenario.com .....website.
Listening to all the hubbub lately over Limbaugh's comments I can't help but have mixed feelings. What he said: hour after hour of rancid slander about one woman, was disgusting. Yet, I can't help but feel that our politicians and, yes, we the public, have let him and the Right build this insane rhetorical whore house featuring a huge stable of hate-based crazies.
I am impressed with dealings between church, state and business to maintain good medical business practice (Affordable Care). Attacks on quality-of-life provisions/services coming from the political right would risk lowering the competitive standards that makes "comprehensive" insurance plans reliable, effective and fair ("contraception" is a life-time decision for women, not just a trip to the drug store as the Republican dumbing of public discourse would surmise).
Belo Monte Dam devastating a gargantuan portion of the Amazon (over 1 million signatures collected internationally against the project that Dilma proceeded with anyway) and Obama giving Taxpayer money to a foreign Corporation to develop a consortium’s Off Shore Oil Drilling off Brazil’s once beautiful coast?
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.
