    Very good so far. I am almost half through.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    They are all great authors. Especially Will Hobbs and Elliot Pattinson.
    I will read more books of them, they are truly fascinating and thrilling.

  2. If you're sick and tired of reading the doom and gloom, the sky is falling and the general malaise of this country and what it means for the future.(you'll need to draw your own conclusions).

    You know the old saying "If it ain't broke don't fix it", well sometimes almost broke lasts along time.

    Point being, we've been through this before.

    We've survived a culture of corruption in politcs and finance. We survived debt, junk bonds and unions.

    We survived incompetence at every level.

    The poor, the immigrants have all been exploited in the past.

    -----------------

    P.s. On the flip side, gesus are people dumb, we have more dumb people in this country than ever before, never mind don't bother with this book, it's friggin hopeless.
