I know by using the title I did I vastly limited the reading audience we will have here.  But maybe the few of us can educate the rest of us—to start voting for their own best interests and not just the Republican Party line.

But I found a couple of Thom Hartmann’s radio show fascinating:

November 9th:

Then this will blow your mind:  the top 100 CEOs have a total pension benefits program of $4.9 billion dollars which is just slightly more than 41% of ALL American plans in place.

November 10th:

The other thing that Thom Hartmannn talks about is this: “What is the American Way?”  This is a phrase that has been associated with the entirety of American History like that concept of Manifest Destiny.  But what does it really mean?  Is it that worn out phrase of the Republican Right now adopted by the Tea Party: “American Exceptionalism”?  We think not.  It comes from the Enlightenment in Europe.  That movement of Thomas Hobbes and John Locke’s Treatise then passed through Thomas Jefferson and some of the Founding Fathers.  It is an Egalatarian movement.

Thanks for Reading this—-William Mee.
