In one of the Star Trek movies, the captain is talking about the Borg and he vehemently states: "The line must be drawn here! This far and no further! And I will make them pay for what they've done!" The captain was speaking of the relentless conglomerization of all sentient entities. Everyone was slowly being assimilated into servitude to the military backed/corporate entity that was "the Borg." Funny how art imitates life, no?

This book has balls. Period. The author holds nothing back. This book points at what has been going wrong, and what can be done to correct it. Ed provides answers; solutions, and whether or not you agree with his ideas, you have to admit that his presentation of the facts shows how corporate profits have in large part replaced national pride as the defacto standard in the upper echelon of global politics. Ed shows us the shell game that is being played; and if you think this is all sensationalism, just wait a few decades and you will wonder whatever happened to that great country we used to call home. The standard argument we hear from the middle class Republicans is that the people with the money provide the jobs, and therefore we need to give them more money. The facts are that America was founded on the individual earning his place in the world, not a corporate feudal state which merely replaces the titles "nobility" and "serf" with "upper management" and "labor."

It's about time someone on the left stopped apologizing, stopped mamby-pambying, and "grew a pair." Ed seems to be that person. Read this book with hi-liter in hand (um... unless you have the Kindle version. I almost marked up my screen already).

In reading the reviews for this book, I noticed an astonishing fact. Those that like the book provided facts and points to back up their claims in a more objective and enlightening way (i.e. light). In contrast, those that did not like the book made only subjective statements with no substance whatsoever (i.e. dark). In conclusion, those that seek out the truth will point out the facts; while those that hate the truth will try to hide the facts and point out other unrelated issues in an attempt to misdirect and deceive people into believing a lie. Those that hate the truth (or light) want others along with themselves to live in darkness and fear. Those that hate the truth and don't want to accept it will try to twist the truth. One thing for us all to remember is that truth is like light and lies are like darkness. In the midst of an infinite number of lies (or darkness) it only takes one truth (or light) to illuminate all. This is why those that hate the truth have very little to say in defense of their lies; simply because you can't defend a lie but you can defend the truth. When speaking truth, don't allow others to distract you from stating the facts. Truth and Light always have dominion over lies and darkness. Good job Mr. Ed Schultz, a much needed book and continue to fight for truth.

I expected to read just a print version of Shultz's show - which wouldb have been okay with me. But I found a very readable and insightful, plain spoken text - the kind of book to read on a plane, or in a fast food restaurant...a private moment.

Ed goes back to his Conservative beginnings and provides a neat timeline to the present. He refers to himself as a "Liberal", although I find him a Left of Center Independent.

"The Nation" paper has cited at least one powerful TV episode from 2010 from this Host.

Particularly moving is his condemnation of the use of a commercial cable station -Foxnews - as a political/idealogical battering ram. ES can be rough, too, but he convinces us his roughness is not borne of any agenda from the station "suits".

This book was written obviously before his 2010 tour (to promote the book) when he encountered the "99-ers", those he sees as victims of politics, Americans with a great work ethic but a shrinking arena to *work in*. Still, this tome, addresses the Bush II era shift upwards (in financial support) and away from the Middle Class and recommends sane remedies.

This is vintage Ed Schultz. Always provocative and right on target. I think I'll keep it as a reference book. Whenever I want to brush up on details of a current subject, I'll check it out here. A lot of quotable figures on a lot of issues.

We need more voices like Ed's.

I am an 'ol retired railroad guy [union]. I looked to this in an effort to figure out what happened to the Labor friendly Democratic party. This book is illogical and contrdictory from the title page on. As my low information viewpoint understands this, Mr. Ed touts the working middle class. He then promotes the policies that have working class treading water. This is no George Meeny [AFL-CIO]. My recommendation is you should read something else, anything else.

Aspiring journalists, I have no doubt, know that the big money in journalism (or what the US media calls journalism) is in peddling propaganda for those few wealthy people who own the media. Thus all those who make mega money in the media beginning with Limbaugh to most at Fox have become experts in doing the following:
1. Facilitate welfare for the richest in the society
2. Brainwash the Middleclass
3. Search for the victims who fall through the cracks and hit them on the head as hard as possible.

There is a good reason for that since the one percent of the wealthy who control most of the wealth need the best masters of propaganda that they can find to brainwash and divide the population to take their confusion and anger on someone else or the people at the bottom may rise against them asking for some of their privileges since as the saying goes "you cannot fool all the people all the time."

However, America did not become the greatest nation in the history of mankind by a small band of privileged running the nation with the help of their propagandists and their guard dogs who bark at anybody who speaks for those who are not heard. As you read "Killer Politics" you will find out that Ed Schultz is one those great American exceptions. Lest we forget, not all in that one percent of the richest Americans are bad people. For example, it's the people such as Schultz's partnership with one of the all-American corporations--mostly owned by that one percent of the richest--"GE" that has facilitated Shultz's evening show.
