Today and on many other days Thom Hartmann urges listeners to engage personally in the democratic process...tag you are it.

I wish to extend my gratitude and thanks to Thom for his encouragement and humanity. You have a great smile Thom. That's one of the things that's going to get us through all of this.

Today I engaged and sent messages to Senator Dick Durban and Congressman Mike Quigley. Following is the text:

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Dear Senator Durbin and Congressman Quigley:

I watched President Obama's commentary last night and I am responding to his request that I contact my representatives.

Don't touch Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

I believe that the Republican Party is a criminal enterprise. And the Democratic Party is not far behind.

Listen to Senator Bernie Sanders and other voices of responsible and humane alternative thought.

Thank you and Best Wishes,

end text.

I will not correspond with Republican Senator Mark Kirk because the last time I corresponded with President George Bush, on the eve of the War against the People and Government of Iraq I received not just a response from his assistant chief of correspondence (or some such title) but two days later another piece of correspondence from the Internal Revenue Service compelling a comprenensive audit.

Finally, I wish to state that many good people would be willing to engage and give of themselves on behalf of a better world if they were not so fully occupied taking care of aged parents or were looking for a job or trying somehow to make ends meet...

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
