A bold, albeit somewhat formless compilation of huge, expensive scams at the expense of taxpayers perpetrated by the White House, President Obama and his cronies as they raise our taxes, redistribute our income and expand government health care, promise immigration reform, and erode protection given by the Patriot Act. They give us a cold look at the liberal media downplaying terrorism, of liberals' secret plan to muzzle talk radio (gets scary here), the expensive do-nothing lackadaisical Congress, U.S. companies funding Iran, well-paid turn-coat lobbyists (former Congressmen), and sections on credit card plastic fleecing, why education is failing, origin of the housing scandal, scams in re-building second homes in flood areas, the sub prime loan crisis, poisoning via tainted children's toys, and much more!
The bottom-line for these politically savvy scam artists is greed, tax evasion and power grabbing, most often via the unwritten pay-to-play rules usually aided by inattention and ineptness of oversight committees, and their rank and affiliations in/to government.
An informative read, it is timely and well penned by the authors (husband and wife) of seven bestselling books including "Catastrophe". Dick Morris was Bill Clinton's political consultant for 20 year. Unfortunately, the authors attempted to pen too much under a single title that the time sequence and subject matter appear to float uneasily and with loose ends. Dick Morris is capable of much better writing than this one, "Fleeced". Nonetheless, it had to be said, one way or the other.
In addition Dick Morris outlines how all the politicians are "fleecing" the public. Both Republicans and Democrats. While the book is written from a conservative point of view, the author doesn't give the Republicans a pass. He criticizes them just as harshly as the Democrats for fleecing us!
I listened to the Unabbridged Audiobook, and it was an excellent read.
American documents, intentions, and events are being demeaned, and we don't want to get too vocal about our concerns.
What day did we turn this corner?
The errors were only a few and simply untrue statements about a few things. I'm certain this happened from a misunderstanding of the research in a few areas. I don't believe it affected the accuracy of his analysis about being fleeced though.
