Reminder: Thom Hartmann's 'Unequal Protection'

Thom Hartmann is serializing online his book Unequal Protection: How Corporations Became "People" - and How You Can Fight Back.

I have now finished reading the library copy (it was due today, damn it), and I think that any reader who calls him- or herself progressive, liberal or for that matter conservative (a word not to be discarded just because the nut-cases insist on applying it to themselves) should acquire a working knowledge of this book.

Chapters 1 and 2 have been posted to date; the entire book of about 30 chapters should appear, about one chapter per week, in the course of the next few months.


  1. There needs to be term limits on the Supreme's and further, several should be elected at large. A Constitutional Amendment needs to be created for recall situations.

  2. mandt, I don't know that it would help. We have elected state judges in Texas; they run on party tickets, and as far as I can tell, those who harbor ill will get elected as easily as they would get appointed by Governor-for-Life Perry. As for term limits for the Supremes, that might be a good idea, but it does seem liable to lead to a lot of undesirable politicking. I don't know the answer to this one.
