Description

You want something heartwarming? Buy a puppy. But, if you want just the facts, ma'am facts rarely cuddly or cute here's your book. 'Before you enter these pages, I should warn you: I am not a nice man. But, I'm not prejudiced: it's not just Oval Office residents that make me gag, it's holders of offices in state capitols, in corporate towers and in a few churches too'. Award-winning guerrilla journalist Greg Palast has gone where most have been too scared to unearth the ugly truth about America today. And, he's got the documents to prove it. Here, he reveals just how scary it's got: how the Patriot Act has sent a nation crazy with fear? How ballot stuffing and black voter snuffing meant John Kerry actually won in '04, and the Republicans have 08 in the bag? How no child is left behind in the queue for jobs cleaning toilets, that is? And, how Bush's ownership society' means corporations buying up the planet? Plus, the story of the trillion-dollar Gulf War oil babies, why some people like to call Greg a Pinko bed-wetting freak, and how to join insurgency USA.show more
