National radio commentator, writer, public speaker, co-editor of the monthly "Hightower Lowdown" and author of "Thieves In High Places: They've Stolen Our Country And It's Time to Take It Back," Jim Hightower has spent three decades battling the Powers That Be on behalf of the Powers That Ought To Be -- consumers, working families, environmentalists, small businesses, and just-plain-folks.

Great common sense commentary
I make it a point to listen to Jim Hightower every morning on my local NPR radio station. I find his commentaries offer a fresh perspective on the activities of our current administration, most of which are deplorable. Thank God for the humorous spin he puts on his commentary!
Fantastic Progressive Wit
Jim Hightower is one of the best progressive wits out there. He always has important information laced with the greatest humor. I love to hear the latest potlitical happenings explained in his wonderful Texas drawl. I am delighted to find his daily commentary in podcast form, because I often miss his tidbits on the radio. Yee haw! With Jim around I can always find a pony the $#!+ pile.
Funny and informative
Jim tells it like it is with Texas wit and drawl. A great podcast for the news stories that the "LAME-stream media" doesn't report on. Proves just because you are from Texas, doesn't mean you have to be some Republican tool. Jim is the BEST! I love this podcast.
