Excellent, common sense, well-documented book about the real reason so many otherwise obviously sane and intelligent people claim to believe the incredible apocalyptic claims of global warming. It is their way of pushing for total government after the Communist plans for world domination didn't work out for them. The forces now at the forefront of this world-wide effort to destroy free market capitalism and put all power in government dictatorships are the former Communists who now call themselves "Greens" --hence watermelons, green on the outside and red on the inside. The author knows these people and their organizations and tactics and he tells about them in this book in an entertaining way for such a serious subject.
There was a plot in there somewhere but most of the time the author spent on sexual fantasies and sexual acts --the book should have been classified under pornography.
I expected humor by the title and discussing philosophy is usually interesting and educational --this book was neither one. The jokes (as far as I got into it) were old and what the authors called philosophy, I would call ad hominem political attacks and just plain bias. Not that I didn't agree with some of the criticism of those being attacked here --it was just done poorly and without style.
After fighting the self-serving, entrenched, arrogant politicians for so many years it is a fantasy escape to read a story where they get slapped down and truth and justice prevail even if it is the hard way. The ACLU, whacky enviro and pseudo human rights groups and the like are exposed for what they are by Flynn through his patriotic characters. I think that is a major appeal of this and other Flynn books. The plots are interesting, too. I liked this book also because many of the characters are identifiable in today's congress. Flynn shows with examples that relate to current problems in the country today like political correctness and the negative influence of lawyers our overly litigious society. It is a good read, or should I say listen. The narrator is excellent, too.
