Fleeced | [Dick Morris, Eileen McGann]

Fleeced

In this hard-hitting call to arms, Dick Morris and Eileen McGann reveal the hundreds of ways American taxpayers are routinely fleeced - by our own government; by foreign countries like Dubai that are gobbling up American interests and spending millions to influence government decisions and American public opinion; by Washington lobbying firms that are pushing the agendas of corrupt foreign dictators on Capitol Hill; and by hedge-fund billionaires collecting huge tax breaks, courtesy of the IRS.

Publisher's Summary

Here are the facts:

  • The United States has released 425 terrorists from Guantánamo, at least 50 of whom have returned to the battlefield to fight American troops.
  • Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton both say they're fiscally responsible. But each has called for $1 trillion in tax increases over the next 10 years - and dressed them up as tax cuts!
  • Mainstream Media has been given marching orders from the Society of Professional Journalists: never refer to "Islamic terrorists" or "Muslim terrorists". And they are obeying! Whenever our brave agents disrupt a terror plot, the media dismisses the culprits as a gang of idiots - lulling us into a false sense of security.
  • If the liberals win the 2008 election, they will cripple talk radio - forcing stations to give equal time to left-wing programs and insisting that liberals play a key role in station management.
  • Up to a quarter of all state pension funds in the United States are invested in companies that are helping Iran, Syria, North Korea, or the Sudan - for a total of nearly $200 billion.
  • The Do-Nothing Congress is still doing nothing - and the worst offenders are the presidential candidates Clinton, Obama, and McCain, who never show up for their day jobs as senators...except to pick up their $165,000 paychecks!

    In this hard-hitting call to arms, Dick Morris and Eileen McGann reveal the hundreds of ways American taxpayers are routinely fleeced - by our own government; by foreign countries like Dubai that are gobbling up American interests and spending millions to influence government decisions and American public opinion; by Washington lobbying firms that are pushing the agendas of corrupt foreign dictators on Capitol Hill; and by hedge-fund billionaires collecting huge tax breaks, courtesy of the IRS.

      "Way Way Way too long"

      The basic points were good, but the examples when on and on. He did a good job of explaining the sub prime interest rate debacle. As with many liberal plans, their heart was in the right place i.e. getting loans for minority groups, but it was not practical, and oversight was nonexistent. President Bush, Karl Rove, Senator McCain and others attempt to reform the system were ignored.

      I find audio books to be the way to go for me. The down time can be put to good use anywhere.

      "Coulda"

      Dick Morris could have done a better job. I know he has the stuff but I think he rushed the book.

      "Almost Credible"

      Morris makes the same tragic mistake of many partisan commentators. He crosses the line of credibility - only so slightly. He takes facts to the stretched interpretation and does not even hint at the opposite point of view. Debates are won in the end not through rhetoric, but through substantive weight. This book COULD HAVE BEEN a credible contribution to the ongoing debate for the soul of America, but it just misses.

      "So Glad That Some Light Has Been Shown On This!"

      Dick Morris does a masterful job in laying it all out for us to understand how we are being fleeced by a lot of the shenanigans that have been going on for years and years in our political system.

      Thanks Dick, now I see the wasteful spending and how it's hurting all of us.

      "Shameless Self Promoting"

      The book seems very interesting from its description. But Dick Morris turns out to be a shameless self-promoter. Issues are presented with so much self-serving bias that you get tired of the book very quickly. That's too bad, I'm sure Dick Morris has a lot of interesting things to say.

      "Fleeced"

      Utterly contemptible. Don't waste your time. Like listening to right-wing talk radio. Half-truths --or No truths -- spewed out as facts. A one-star rating is being generous. Absolutely without merit.

      "Is This Guy For Real???"

      How convenient to come out swinging at the Dems. Whatever happened to the buck stops here? In the past 8 years under GOP rule, we've had the worst economic downturn in history, a foreign policy nightmare,( also, what "domestic terrorism" is he speaking about?) throwing away near a trillion dollars on a war in a country we had no business being in, and the biggest tax cuts to the people who needed them the least. Now suddenly we're supposed to believe that if the dems get elected its going to be worse, and that all the problems they will inherit are THEIR FAULT! Are you kidding me? I though this book was written by Dick Morris, not Sean Hannity.
