    I feel bad listing this book as read since I didn t finish it I got it from the library and since it was new it had to back in two weeks and I couldn t renew it The part about how foreign countries get American lobby groups to represent them was interesting and he does accuse both dems and repubs of bad deeds The best parts are the pot shots at the Clintons, who he used to work for.

    I don t care what political side you are on republican or democrat, conservative or liberal I find this book quite interesting on how our government is working right now which scares the daylights out of me I read one reviewer say that he took this book as a grain of salt I don t take it as a grain of salt But there is one thing we need to learn is that we all need to get involved with the workings of our government.We need to hold them accountable and be responsable Do those words sound fa I don t care what political side you are on republican or democrat, conservative or liberal I find this book quite interesting on how our government is working right now which scares the daylights out of me I read one reviewer say that he took this book as a grain of salt I don t take it as a grain of salt But there is one thing we need to learn is that we all need to get involved with the workings of our government.We need to hold them accountable and be responsable Do those words sound familiar We not only need to vote but we need to write our congressmen and senators We can do so much to clean out the wrong

    Worth it for the Credit Card Section Alone , December 17, 2008As I read these reviews, I cannot help but noticing that most of them reek of political rhetoric in one sense or another I guess that is what makes me wonder whether a good number of the reviewers have even read the book Yeah, Morris is a former Clinton hack who appears on the FOX network so what What s lost in the mix is that Morris is smart, informed and most of all FAIR The only side this book leans to is that of the Worth it for the Credit Card Section Alone , December 17, 2008As I read these reviews, I cannot help but noticing that most of them reek of political rhetoric in one sense or another I guess that is what makes me wonder whether a good number of the reviewers have even read the book Yeah, Morris is a former Clinton hack who appears on the FOX network so what What s lost in the mix is that Morris is smart, informed and most of all FAIR The only side this book leans to is that of the consumer whether Democrat, Republican, liberal or conservative I feel this book is beneficial to all Aside from his guesswork as to what an Obama Presidency would bring in chapter 1 the rest of the book is devoted to how the average American is duped by the government and its lack of governing in almost every aspect of life But, the first chapter is important in that Morris believes an Obama Administration will institute policies that may have a negative effect on Americans Since the book was published before the field was even narrowed down to two candidates Morris book has, so far, proven prophetic only time will validate chapter 1 of this book but the rest of the book is where the meat and potatoes are Fleeced covers a wide range of topics from the way our government is influenced or even controlled to degree by countries that hate the United States to Congress getting paid for a two minute workday to the media deciding how much or little it wants Americans to fear terrorism The topics are interesting and Morris presents them in an appealing, easy to digest manner there are plenty of juicy incriminating inserts charts that that disclose names and dollar amounts Where Morris separates himself from the rest of the modern day muckrakers is that he is not content with merely complaining at the end of each chapter topic he suggests what can be done to fix or improve things Worth its weight in gold, however, is the chapter on credit card issuers fleecing the public As a former banker, I found this to be one of the most honest, informative and blistering attacks on an entity that has become fat from eating off the gullible, ignorant and desperate American consumer Anyone that owns a credit card most of us can learn something by reading this chapter alone At the end of the chapter, you re even told what you can do to fight the credit card issuers really good stuff If your looking for the book to bash one political party in favor of another, this won t be it Morris is clearly on the side of the American citizen in this one and he doesn t hesitate to tell you that both parties in government are guilty in screwing you over

    I like books that make me think a little about the things going on around me This one opened my eyes to several things about government and politics that I was oblivious to before In the same breath, however, I acknowledge how we should not base our opinions on the opinions or speculations of others We should seek to look at government from all angles to make wise and informed decisions come election time Thank you I now step down from my soap box.

    This book has one star because I can t figure out how to give it none It s a screed full of unverfiable speculation, thrown in some facts and here and there some bold faced lies for good measure, which essentially makes it not only a waste of time, but also the kind of thing you feel compelled to disagree with.

    WOW Well talk about your rabid xenophobic hard core right wing American literature little surprise that it was a best seller in the states Not hugely shocking as well in the section of people who also viewed this book viewed Hitler s Mein Kampf hmmm maybeis selling it as a packaged deal That being said I did enjoy the book immensely, like I enjoy watching documentary on an American survivalist who found the one kilometre of space in the states that is safe from natural disaster as w WOW Well talk about your rabid xenophobic hard core right wing American literature little surprise that it was a best seller in the states Not hugely shocking as well in the section of people who also viewed this book viewed Hitler s Mein Kampf hmmm maybeis selling it as a packaged deal That being said I did enjoy the book immensely, like I enjoy watching documentary on an American survivalist who found the one kilometre of space in the states that is safe from natural disaster as well as the impending UN invasion of the United States as it s surrounding mountain form a natural fortress that can be easily defended Its the American little quirks and eccentrics that makes them so entertaining It was a nice change of the politically liberal books that I tend to read The conservative opinion in the states certainly doesn t mess around with things called subtlety or finesse It did have some interesting information and the many mostly really outlandish and offensive to sense or reason or basic intelligence statement made it quite amusing to read hence the two stare I do think it rachel maddows and bill o reilly should have some sort of chat show view type of show together or better yet morning show How brillant would that be

    The last book I reviewed low because I didn t like the characters Maybe I should go back and rerate the book because I sure DIDN T like the characters in this one This book forecast the gloom and doom if Obama won the election, then the gloom and doom if Hillary won, and last but not least, the gloom and doom if McCain won Did we have a choice I guess as to what gloom and doom we could live with It went on the explain how we were being scammed by the government especially congress, De The last book I reviewed low because I didn t like the characters Maybe I should go back and rerate the book because I sure DIDN T like the characters in this one This book forecast the gloom and doom if Obama won the election, then the gloom and doom if Hillary won, and last but not least, the gloom and doom if McCain won Did we have a choice I guess as to what gloom and doom we could live with It went on the explain how we were being scammed by the government especially congress, Democrats, Republicans alike, the last 3 administrations, the Press, foreign companies, lobbyists, Dubai, credit card companies, lenders and mortgage officers, teacher unions, hedge funds, FEMA, Halliburton Cheney, Wall Street, toy makers like Disney, movie industry, and last but not least Bill Clinton No one was ignored in this book It s enough to keep you awake at night The prediction of how the stock market would react if it appeared like Obama was going to win came true exactly as written I can only hope the other predictions do not come true or we are in worst trouble than we think

    While you can t fault everything in the book, and while the author does criticize both major political parties to some extent, the clear purpose of the book, put out during the Presidential primary campaign season, was to swing voters to the authors conservative views Like many in talk radio, he s got strong opinions as seen through his conservative perspective, and you ll hear his side of the argument as to how the NY Times is too liberal, how Iraq will become a terrorist haven and how the eco While you can t fault everything in the book, and while the author does criticize both major political parties to some extent, the clear purpose of the book, put out during the Presidential primary campaign season, was to swing voters to the authors conservative views Like many in talk radio, he s got strong opinions as seen through his conservative perspective, and you ll hear his side of the argument as to how the NY Times is too liberal, how Iraq will become a terrorist haven and how the economy will collapse if Obama is elected, etc Morris is a political consultant, who s worked for both parties as well as on foreign election campaigns, and he s currently is involved in conservative media activities With the 2008 election concluded, there s not much purpose in telling the readers how the Country will suffer if Obama gets elected It s over The best use of this book now might be to re read it four or eight years from now, and see how good or bad a prognosticator Morris was in his doom and gloom view of a possible Democratic Party victory
