Immigration: the wide open door -- The United Nations -- Hypocrisy at the ACLU: Against Criticizing the Liberties Union -- The 2006 Congress: no wonder we threw them out... and how to make sure they don't go back to their old tricks again! -- Thanks for the Patriot Act and NSA wiretapping -- How teachers unions block education reform -- The new drug dealers: how pharmaceutical companies are dangerous to our health -- Fannie Mae: the Democratic Enron -- The bankruptcy bill: "to hell with forgiveness," saith the Congress -- The great student loan robbery -- Katrina insurance scams: "What do you mean I'm not covered?" -- Tobacco companies: more addicts, more profits -- A tale of two crooks: Gerhard Schroder and Jacques Chirac -- How special interest trade protectionism robs us all.
Half of all illegal immigrants came into this country legally--and we have no way of knowing whether they're still here. Congressmen are putting their wives on their campaign payrolls--so that campaign contributions are really personal bribes. The ACLU won't allow its own directors free speech. Liberals want to strip us of the tools to stop terrorism. The UN is a cover for massive corruption--and eighty countries, who pay 12 percent of the budget, are blocking reform. Drug companies pay off doctors to write prescriptions--whether we need them or not. Teachers' unions block the firing of bad teachers--and battle against higher education standards. Katrina victims are being stiffed by their insurance companies. Special interests cost our consumers $45 billion--through trade quotas that save only a handful of jobs. Never heard of these abuses? That's why Morris and McGann wrote this book.--From publisher description
