Hartmann argues that the middle class is not the natural consequence of a free market based economy, but rather, the intended result of policies put into place to maximize the public good. Unfortunately, he maintains, the American middle class is on its deathbed.

Great Book. (Not my summary above)

Still pisses me off the crap our country has gone through and all we can talk about is Britney and Lindsey, WTF!!! :doh: Our country is sick and dying.. :sick:

Also, I just started on Naomi Klein's 'The Shock Doctrine'. I am attaching photos of the covers 'cause I dunno how to put them in the middle of the text.

Peace Out,

Ditto, but I have been reading this on and off for about 6 months.  Seems like I can put it down and just pick up where I left off.  Like it and am now near the end!  Of the book that is, hopefully not mine, close but no cigar today!  Like  anyone can plan those things.:doh::partysmile:

Right now, Stealth is reading the new Geoff Nelder novel, "Exit, Pursued by a Bee." Last night he had the bong resting on the book and we took a picture and e-mailed it to the author. Howled when it turned up on his Facebook page bearing the legend:

My book, Exit, Pursued by a Bee being used in a creative way in Santa Cruz, California. Yes it is supporting a bong. I knew it would be enjoyed by many :)

Me? I'm reading a Barbara Michaels romance. :thumb:

"The Other Side of Israel" by Susan nathan

story of a jewish woman from south africa originally who goes to Israel to become a Zionist. What she discovers makes her realize that the Israeli occupation is more intrusive on the lives of the native Palestinians than is acknowldged by the Israeli's, and so many correlating problems ensue.

If you want to know what we really have planned for Afghanistan, Iraq, and the rest of the middle east, read this book, because they are all headed for Apartheid Turmoil in the middle, near east and the rest of Africa
