Lou Dobbs gives his take on some of the country's most pressing problems - including provocative topics no one is talking about - and what might be done to address them. Covering our challenges in the areas of debt, the failure of our transportation infrastructure, the encroachment of the federal government, the power and size of public sector unions, the problems of business, big banks, big government, and more, Axis of Upheaval arms us with valuable information, as only Lou Dobbs can deliver it: with his frank, intelligent, and witty style.
Through his nightly CNN show Lou Dobbs Tonight, his syndicated radio program, and his monthly magazine column, Lou Dobbs has become one of America's most visible, popular, and respected voices on business and financial matters. Now, with War on the Middle Class, Dobbs takes an impassioned and rousing stance on the all-out class war that is turning the American dream into a nightmare.
"Lou Has Got It Mostly Right !"
The border is a tough place to work, especially for FBI agent Tom Eriksen. With a history of violence, he cannot afford any on-duty screw-ups. So when an investigation ends in a bloody shootout and the shooting is deemed "questionable", the bureau reassigns Eriksen to an office known as "the Island of Misfit Cops": A resting place for those who have screwed up enough to warrant being dumped in El Paso. But when his partner is murdered, Eriksen must take charge and solve the case, wading through corruption and betrayal to discover the truth.
"I was really hoping for a good book"
After the release of his new book, entitled War on the Middle Class, Lou Dobbs details the ways that our middle class is being oppressed by the government, big business, and special interest groups - and how to fight back. In an intense political discussion, with topics ranging from immigration to free trade, Dobbs explains that we must get back to the roots to which this nation was founded to re-establish our values as Americans.
