War on the Middle Class: How the Government, Big Business, and Special Interest Groups Are Waging War on the American Dream and How to Fight Back, by Lou Dobbs
Blue MauMau’s bloggers sometimes decry the lack of government protection in franchising or, in contrast, quake in alarm that there may be more government fetters put on franchisors. In this book Lou Dobbs gives a realistic appraisal of what is going on in the American Congress and how, as many suspect, the American public gets no respect. The influence of Big Business, special interest groups and foreign governments is pervasive on Capitol Hill and far stronger than that of the American public.
No doubt some of you are old enough to remember Lou Dobbs as a typically dispassionate financial commentator on TV’s Moneyline back in the ‘80s. He has since metamorphosed into a skilled political commentator on CNN, with a crack investigative staff. Lou, a Harvard graduate with a degree in economics, now presides over the most popular show on CNN, with an audience of 800,000.
The book, published in 2006, has such chapter titles as, “The Best Government Money Can Buy,” :”The Politics of Deceit,” “The Exorbitant Cost of Free Trade,” and “Broken Borders.”
The in-depth research and analysis will give you a whole new understanding of what’s happening in this country, unless you’re already a regular watcher of Lou Dobbs Tonight. Chances are you will be outraged by at least some of what you read, no matter what side of the political spectrum you are on.
The book conveniently has The Declaration of Independence and The United States Constitution at the back, plus a plan of action, for those who agree with Abraham Lincoln:
“These United States of America can never be destroyed from forces outside its borders. If America falls, it will fall from within. Brought down by apathy. When good people do nothing, anarchy reigns.”
