SOS-USA: A 20th-century Critique, a 21st-century Warning

Inspired by the events of September 11, and Hurricane Katrina, SOS-USA tackles the issue of the reversible downward spiral our nation is currently enduring. If we can see it, why can't our government officials? Is it that they can do something but choose not to just so that they can get reelected? Is their legacy more important than We the People's future?

Publisher's Summary

Inspired by the events of September 11, and Hurricane Katrina, SOS-USA tackles the issue of the reversible downward spiral our nation is currently enduring. If we can see it, why can't our government officials? Is it that they can do something but choose not to, just so that they can get reelected? Is their legacy more important than We the People's future? Delving into tough questions such as these, author Simple Citizen challenges the U.S. government and America's extremist tolerance mentality, digging into the annals of history to find the answers about everything from religion to illegal aliens by connecting the "dots" that already exist within the public domain. Let SOS-USA inspire you toward change, dialogue, and a lot more honesty, lest, God forbid, our country become nothing more than - to use music industry parlance - a sort of "one hit wonder" of global civilizations throughout time. This book doesn't provoke thought; it demands it.

    "White supremacy through hip-hop dialectics?"

    I am shocked that Audible has allowed it's format to sink this low in not only studio quality, but in substance. This White supremacist diatribe is nearly incomprehensible. Simple Citizen sprinkles his stuttered meanderings with multi-syllabic words he cannot pronounce and occasional overt racist remarks. He states, very early on, that he wants White Anglo-Saxon Protestants to take back control of the U.S. He follows this by a less than riveting slaughtering of history and the English language.
    I will refrain from calling Simple Citizen "Simple Minded", but I think he is closed minded. It's obvious that he is well coached in history, but his delivery is less than convincing. the audio sounds like he recorded it in his basement, his enunciation sounds like a literate street thug who taught himself to read in prison and his focus is, well there really isn't a focus.
    Give this one a pass.

    "Almost painful..."

    I agree with Elton mostly. Not that I disagreed with much of what Simple Citizen had to say, but,.. "close-minded" describes the author. After an hour I stopped it, and deleted from iTunes.

    I don't have a problem with listening to average guy from the Bronx (or so he sounded) railing on about this country's problems, but his vocabulary does not fit. I think he must have worn out his thesaurus picking out big words. I may have at least finished listening if he had just spoken in plain English without trying to use every 50 cent word he could throw in there.

    Also, his reading is horrible. There are many slight pauses and other vocal distractions. I could almost see him running his finger over the script while fumbling over the words. He wrote it,.. so why does he sound like he's reading some text book he is not familiar with?

    Hey Simple Citizen, re-record this thing in your own words. I'll probably still disagree with some of your conclusions, but at least I'd listen to the end.
