YES! It will renew the public's push for more regulation.
NO! Congress has proven they’ve sided with the NRA on this.

No and isn't it ironic that we must insure our cars, homes and even have health insurance but not guns! Also, my city forbids citizens to own a pitbull (dog) as a pet because they are TOO dangerous. However, the same home can own 1,5,10 or more guns and nobody cares. Homeowners can not get the same premiums as the person that lives next door if they have a pitbull but if they have a poodle like their neighboor but have enough guns to fight in Syria, well that's OK. What has happened to common sense? Dog bite versus the Sandyhook rampage or the latest "if I can't have have it then you can't" spoiled brat mentality do the math.................. Unless it is the new common core it doesn't add up.

When my son was 6 years he was interviewed by a popular magazine. The question: What would you do if you had a million dollars Nicholas? His answer "Money is not my God!" Now, throughout history when humans are asked that same question, the response dictates the obvious; When money is your God, you will fail. The Heroes that started this country decided a differant response was the right way to go for all of our sake. What this country has become is the ages old answer, when money is your god you will fail. Every time! People have become narcasistic. Selfish. And Angry. Money is this countries god. And observe the result. The part of us that needs waking up is the reality that VERY few benefit from this tenet. And you know what else, when their 'jig is up' they will simply walk away and care not. Guns. Phones, It's always the same result, A few will make money then walk away. YOU AMERICANS ARE BEING DISTRACTED FOR ONE REASON ONLY to make a few rich. It's King & Queen time again!!! Benjamin Franklin would be ashamed.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
