it was amazing

If you are wondering why America is in the current mess it is today, read this book. If you are wondering why we are seeing such increases in oil prices, read this book. If you are wondering why your home mortgage is impossible to pay all while your home value is declining, read this book. If you voted for bush for a second term, shame on you, this book will explain your vote and how it helped shaped our bleak future (unless of course you are somehow tied to oil). If you want to remain aloof and continue sweeping all notions of America's decline under the rug, just simply read the tag on your rug and you can be reminded of who not only made the rug but also who lent you the money to buy it and who will soon enough be coming to yank it out from under your feet. Besides being a little angering and depressing I highly recommend this book. I just wish I would have read it before I had bought my house, I probably would have been looking for property in China
