Shock as Reality Show Invites Contestants to Kill
I stumbled upon the Thom Hartmann Show on Free Speech TV a few
months back. Since I had heard of Mr. Hartmann on Air America
but really never tuned in… I allowed this channel to
remain for awhile so I could see what Thom had to say.
I’ve been hooked ever since. Not in the sense that the
followers of Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh are HOOKED by:
Blind Ignorance and Hate Filled Bigotry; I’m captivated
by Thom Hartmann’s ideas and beliefs because of my
desire for knowledge. This man has so much knowledge you have
to wonder how he can retain it all. He takes phone calls then
supports the callers’ questions or statements with his
voluminous experience and perception. Many times he will get
a question or suggestion and you can almost see the wheels go
to work inside his head, admitting he may not know too much
on the subject but will look into it.
He’s also not afraid to admit he’s wrong unlike the hate
mongers on the right. The Becks and Limbaughs (et al) are so
sure they know it ALL, they would never back down or act
human with a simple “I have no knowledge of that”,
or maybe a “I will research that” Not these
right-wing-nuts, It’s always “I KNOW and YOU
DON’T!” jingle all the way.
If the right-winded jerks on the right just played their
audience (for their listening and viewing pleasure) and that
was all there was to it… (Like an evening spent laughing
at a comedian in some night club, then you go home) there
would be no problem. But their devotees get so riled by the
constant baneful and deadly rhetoric that spews from their
TVs or radios that their newly found hatefulness spills out
onto the streets and they group together and slap a label on
themselves like… TEABAGGER (thinking somehow they are
aligning with the Boston Tea Party patriots). Now armed with
this talk radio/ TV hatred they’re out for blood and
anyone on the left is their target, whether it be a Parkinson
diseased man or a small boy who just lost his mother to a
disease because she had no health insurance. The rest is
TEABAG history! thinkingblue aka thethinkingblue

WASHINGTON – House Democrats heard it all Saturday
— words of inspiration from President Barack Obama and
raucous chants of protests from demonstrators. And at times
it was flat-out ugly, including some racial epithets aimed at
black members of Congress.
Most of the day’s important work leading up to Sunday’s
historic vote on health care was being done behind closed
doors. Democratic leaders cajoled, bargained and did what
they could to nail down the votes they will need to finally
push Obama’s health care overhaul bill through the House.
But much else about the day was noisy, emotional and right
out in the open. After more than a year debating the capstone
of Obama’s domestic agenda and just hours to go before the
showdown vote, there was little holding back.
The tone was set outside the Capitol. Clogging the sidewalks
and streets of Capitol Hill were at least hundreds — no
official estimate was yet available — of loud, furious
protesters, many of them tea party opponents of the health
Rallies outside the Capitol are typically orderly, with
speeches and well-behaved crowds. Saturday’s was different,
with anger-fueled demonstrators surrounding members of
Congress who walked by, yelling at them.
Kill the bill,” the largely middle-aged crowd
shouted, surging toward lawmakers who crossed the street
between their office buildings and the Capitol. MORE HERE

15 Executives Who Get Paid Millions
To Deny You Health Care Coverage
The business model of American health
insurers is basically: try to get healthy customers as
clients, and then resist as long as possible when it comes to
paying out claims.
That’s actually not an indictment or a criticism.
It’s just the way our system works, and its screwed up.
Whatever you feel about Obamacare (HEALTH INSURANCE REFORM), you probably think our current system needs reform in some sense.
