Honestly I think that Citizen's United is going to win Romney the presidency and a repub majority in the senate. They will pass the Paul Ryan budget and.......scenes like this in Anaheim are going to become an everyday event all over the country. I hope that I am wrong, but I think the CU decision was huge. But in the long run it may be the necessary medicine for those of us that have been disenfranchised by the system to be desperate enough to put together some serious opposition to the present status quo. If that's what it takes to move quicker towards a more evolved system of democratic socialism, than so be it. Just my two cents.

Thanks for all you do Thom, Lois, and company

I couldn't agree with jdjay more! This country has never had Health Care, but we have had our fill of sick care for profit and not even that if you are poor. This is a money grubbing corrupt system that is anti-christian as you can get. Yes, there will be one heck of ANOTHER civil war in this country and I hope that Democratic Socialism and REAL CHRISTIANITY takes over and we never hear of the Republican Party ever again in ANY context! Medicare for ALL!! The rest of the industrialised western countries enjoy real HEALTH CARE! We need to break the too big to fail banks apart into much smaller banks that actually serve all the people of America and not just the wealthy. Bring back the Glass Steigle Act!!

You better believe it! Especially, given the way Obama and other authorities turned a deaf ear to the OWS movement.

From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
