Profit Trumps Health

Once again republicans are putting profit ahead of health.  This from Thom Hartmann,

Republicans are trying to defund an online database set to launch in a few weeks that would make public safety complains against companies available for the public to view. Republicans argue the database will lead to companies having to pay to fight lawsuits. Currently - complaints are kept secret. On top of that - Republicans are working to stamp out new safety regulations that stop toxic products from being brought in from overseas - claiming these new regulations cut into the profits for their CEO buddies.

 They not only want to give all your money to the wealthy and corporations, they don't care if you die in the name of profits.

Voting republican can be dangerous to your health...and the health of your children.


  1. I have heard of Hartmann but he's not broadcast around here. I'll have to try and find him on line.

  2. Tim,
    You can listen to him online here between 8 and 12 pacific time, or check out his website for additional options.

  3. He is one of my favorites.
    I get him and Mike Malloy on my Sirius/XM radio.
    America left channel.

    Thom is the more civil one.
    Mile Malloy is my kind of guy {a real get in your face kind a guy]. :-)
    He calls out the Neolib dems every chance he gets.
    He hates Shillary just as much as I do.

  4. In Ohio, a whole lot of people are newly-aware of this.

    It is a crying damned shame it took Czar Kashitch I to make them aware of it.

  5. Hello Jerry,
    What a good informative piece that really needs to get out to the public quickly before this becomes law in general.

    I will pass on a quote from William Shakespeare. I know the time for those INSANE minds that drive the Ultra Conservative Right in the U.S. like the Governors of Wisconsin, Ohio, and now Rhode Island; the current Republican leadership within the House and Senate, those no different than the current events of Moammar Gadaffi and others in the Middle East; all will implode and die a slow agonizing political death…. I give you….

    Shakespeare's Richard II Speech Segment Quote:

    For God’s sake let us sit upon the ground
    And tell sad stories of the death of kings -
    How some have been deposed, some slain in war,
    Some haunted by the ghosts they have deposed,
    Some poisoned by their wives, some sleeping killed;
    All murdered. For within the hollow crown
    That rounds the mortal temples of a king
    Keeps Death his court, and there the antic sits,
    Scoffing his state and grinning at his pomp,
    Allowing him a breath, a little scene,
    To monarchize, be feared, and kill with looks,
    Infusing him with self and vain conceit,

    Man it just doesn’t get better than that does it!!

    Now an Engineer Of Knowledge Quote:
    The Progressive Arts will out last Political Power that tries to hold down, stifles progresses; that which rules through lies and fears!!! Revolutions are not caused by revolutionaries, it is the demographic, economic, social, and political forces that create a revolutionary environment that anoint and propel someone to the status of revolutionary, or some may call radical liberals depending on their prospective. Either way, the progressive viewpoints of man will win….that is why it is call “Progress.”

  6. Thanks for your visit :) marja

  7. I hope all the morons that voted in these Rethugs are having a bad case of Buyers Remorse. Not that it will change anything as they have to wait a year to recall these fucks. Think of all the damage they can do in a friggin year.
