I believe the occupy movement will only grow and continue to work at other levels. I hope protesters who get charged with felonies will fight them, since it takes away their right to vote, and feeds some of the very issues they're fighting that target minorities and such.

On another topic..here's a thought..let's take the radical muslems and the radical islama-phobes....put them all on an island with their guns and let them fight it out...away from the more universally minded and tolerant. My personal view is that real faith, no matter what that faith may be, stands on its own, is stronger than, and has nothing to do with extreme attitudes or actions on either side.

I have a game changer idea!...how about FSTV give 15 minutes to each cadidate each night one at a time, ...that means all the candidates, and all the parties, each one with 15 minutes to tell us what they have done that quaifies them for the job, what they will do if elected, and how they will do it.

One candidate per night, great draw for viewer's! and it would assist in removing money from the election, WE the people could see, and hear each candidate speak, and then...the next round, have them answer questions from the viewers live, no notes! 15 minutes, and answers must be less than 30 seconds!... then the finale one week, before the election, have facts and statements checked for the truth on everything we've heard them say, then...we can decide who to vote for, but the big problem is having another country (Spain) count the votes in this election,this must be against the Constiution, why not go back to paper votes that are counted by the people. Why vote if you can't trust the votes being counted correctly.??

Trump Is Using Racist White People To Make The Rich Richer

There is this whole mythology that Donald Trump came to power because 53% of white women voted for him, because 66% of white working men who didn't have a college degree voted for him.

That may be, but those are not his constituents. Those are his suckers. Those are his rubes.

From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
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
