    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.

    Full of good facts, quotes, and ideas. But, Beck does make a good idiot...so, all in all, a good listen.

  • New Deal or Raw Deal?: How FDR's Economic Legacy Has Damaged America

    Story

    In this shocking and groundbreaking new book, economic historian Burton Folsom, Jr., exposes the idyllic legend of Franklin D. Roosevelt as a myth of epic proportions. With questionable moral character and a vendetta against the business elite, Roosevelt created New Deal programs marked by inconsistent planning, wasteful spending, and opportunity for political gain---ultimately elevating public opinion of his administration but falling flat in achieving the economic revitalization that America needed.

    "Fantastic"
    Overall

    Not really bashing FDR...but uses facts to debunk the myths we have been force-fed since infancy. That is, the New Deal saved democracy. Far from it...it just about destroyed the free market system and left us with out of control government programs.
