YES! The police have shown they can't handle this.
NO! Bringing in the Nat’l Guard will incite more riots.

How laughable. The Army (National Guard) should be brought in to insure the police does not behave as a "gestapo". They should be there to protect the PEOPLE from the police, NOT the other way around !!!

The Governor of Missouri brought in their National Guard to protect police command post from the citizens of Ferguson. To ease the tension, the Missouri National Guard should create a buffer zone between the Police Department of Ferguson and Missouri State Highway patrol, not to protect law enforcement from the citizens. This just show how far this country’s Justice Department along with law enforcement, (the Police Department) has deteriorated into a totalitarian state controlled by a political police force that secretly supervises the citizens' activities, what we called, a police state! Where is Andy Taylor of Mayberry when you need him!

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

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 Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
