YES! He had to take action because Boehner refuses to.
NO! An act by Congress is only way to get true reform.

What would you rather have for America?: (a) More Mitch McConnholes and John Bonner's running around, or (b) more immigrants.

[and yea, you got my permission to deport McConnhole and Bonner]

No way no how do I support Obama's amnesty by executive order. He may be frustrated but he doesn't get to write the laws---Congress does, and he doesn't get to rule by executive fiat. In addition to rewarding individuals who willfully broke the law, Obama is also telling the some 400,700 indivduals presently following the legal process that they're a bunch of saps. They should step out of line and just do it; forget about the law; forget about any medical criteria; forget about any requirements to speak minimum English or knowledge about US history or laws. Simply feel free to slid on it. If you wait long enough, the spineless federal government will fold. Obama's amnesty also tell millions of others to simple come on in; don't bother stopping at the border. We're a wide open country now.

LOVE 'The Revolution of 1800', Thom; and its description of obstructing the will of the majority back then illustrates it's nothing new. Boehner, McConnell, Koch Bros, et al, do excel at that activity!

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:
"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 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
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
