YES! Let’s stop giving our money to tax-dodging companies!
NO! Boycotts mostly hurt workers & franchise owners.

If they move to Canada they should be banned from doing business in America. Seize their domestic assets and auction them off to PATRIOTIC competitors/franchise owners.

The bullshit must stop.

This requires a simple fix and should be applied to all corporate tax dodgers.

LEGISLATION : Private companies are indeed private and can do what is in their best interests. Conversley it is governments responsiblity to do what is in the best interest of the nation. If a corporation refuses to pay into the communities (ie nation) their fair share of taxes they are hearby BANNED from profiting off those communities.

Translation............ Dont think you are going to peddle your product in our country !

Comment: Businesses will never miss an oportunity to make profit, even though their ultimate goal is consistently HIGHER profits.

Conclusion : They will not leave or close just because the profit margin is less. Sure they want 100 million in profit but they will NOT pass up 10 million in profit if it is to be had.

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 The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
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 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
