Dude Where's My Country Author:Michael Moore When the powers-that-be succeeded in ignoringand then silencingthe nations widespread dissent over war, one man stood on an Oscar stage and, in front of a billion people, outed the commander in chief for his fictitious presidency and his fictitious war. Now, just a few months later, those words have remarkably become the accept... more »ed truth of the land. Yes, MICHAEL MOORE is the scourge of Stupid White Men everywhere. Hes taken on fat cats, gun nuts, lying politicians. The Guardian describes him as "a wake-up call, a kick in the mental backside." And now hes backdaring to ask the most urgent question of these perilous times: Dude, Wheres My Country? MICHAEL MOORE is on a mission in his new book: Regime Change. The man who slithered into the White House on tracks greased by his daddys oil buddies is one of many targets in Mikes blistering follow-up to his smash #1 hit Stupid White Men, the biggest-selling nonfiction book of the year. Now no one is safe: corporate barons who have bilked millions out of their employees lifetime savings, legislators who have stripped away our civil liberties in the name of "homeland security," and even that right-wing brother-in-law of yours (yes, we all have one) who manages, year after year, through his babbling idiocy, to ruin Thanksgiving dinner.« less
I just want to start out by saying (whether you agree or not - that's up to you, of course) that I am a Liberal (note that I do not say Democrat) and I'm VERY against Baby Bush - but that I DID NOT LIKE this book much.
To me, Moore's arguments are not that well thought out, his logic and arguments are disjointed and hop from subject to subject like a frightened rabbit, and you have to buy the separate "official reader" to get the actual FACTS that he claims are in the book. Now, through some independent research, I do know that much of what he says is true or based on truth - but much of it is also conjecture - and he does not do us, the reader, the courtesy of telling us which he is stating at any given time - basically everything is represented as 100% factual!
IF YOU WANT A MUCH BETTER BOOK complete with FACTS and SOURCES try AL FRANKEN'S LIES and the LYING LIARS WHO TELL THEM, A FAIR AND BALANCED LOOK AT THE RIGHT...it is scrupulously researched (with all sources almost ridiculously detailed), logical in its flow from one idea to the next, and is also a good bit funnier and more well written. After seeing Moore's movie, I was VERY disappointed in the book, which I hoped would be just as good - but just didn't deliver for me!
Come one come all those who dispise the plague running the country. Dude where's my country is more of the witty response to just this from the Famed Michael Moore. I loved this book personally always a laugh with Michael Moore.
