    Idiots can't be identified through voting records, they can be found only by looking for people who hide behind stereotypes, embrace partisanship, and believe that bumper-sticker slogans are a substitute for common sense. If you know someone who fits the bill, then Arguing with Idiots will help you silence them once and for all with the ultimate weapon: the truth.

    James says: "Good facts...average humor"
    "Will the Idiot please stand up"
    Overall

    points out some very basic flaws in the general thought of the day. Even a few i never thought of. Great section that explains the COMPLETE constitution. From the beginning to the end almost line for line. Worth reading if just for that alone.

    It's difficult today to imagine how America survived the Great Depression. Only through the stories of the common people who struggled during that era can we really understand how the nation endured. In The Forgotten Man, Amity Shlaes offers a striking reinterpretation of the Great Depression. Rejecting the old emphasis on the New Deal, she turns to the neglected and moving stories of individual Americans, and shows how they helped establish the steadfast character we developed as a nation.

    Ray says: "One of the Best Books On the Subject"
    "A great book."
    Overall

    Shlaes does a great job of explaining what you will never learn in Public Schools. Don’t be fooled by people who call this “revisionist”. As you read it you also see a lot of similarities in the legislation and arguments that are being used today. Unfortunately some don’t learn what history has to teach.

    Do you remember your first time? People tend to remember the moment they first heard The Rush Limbaugh Show on the radio. For Zev Chafets, it was in a car in Detroit, driving down Woodward Avenue. Limbaugh's braggadocio, the outrageous satire, the slaughtering of liberal sacred cows performed with the verve of a rock-n-roll DJ-it seemed fresh, funny and completely subversive.

    Thomas G. Romano says: "Great Insights into an Iconic Figure"
    "Zev was at least Honest"
    Overall

    THis was a good book, and the author did a great job of being honest and not a smear job. Not a biography, but some interesting things are found with in.

    Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? Why do drug dealers still live with their moms? How much do parents really matter? What kind of impact did Roe v. Wade have on violent crime?

    Timothy says: "Fascinating book, despite the title."
    "The book is a freak"
    Overall

    The arguments used in this book on "economics" are a freak themselves. They come from left field at best. One book I was sorry I bought.
