(Opening today's show) Thom Hartmann rants about Sarah Palin's definition of freedom in America.
Thom also discussed Benjamin Franklin discovering the mass poverty of England while on a trip there and government subsidized poorhouses of the post colonial era as examples of the government servicing the poor.

Another caller brought up CORPORATE welfare as example of "free stuff":
Another caller concurs with Thom: Palin's comments had racial undertones like Reagan's welfare queen speech!
