    Reading a book? Just finished one? Want to recommend something? Try here.

    This summer, I've read two books and I'm currently in the process of reading a third.

    Book One - Stupid White Men And Other Sorry Excuses For The State Of The Nation. (Michael Moore, 2002)

    I decided to buy this after seeing Fahrenheit 9/11. This book was very eye-opening. First Moore explains in high detail how Bush rigged the Florida vote which made him win the 2000 election. He later on branches off against democrats and republicans, and shows why Bush has been a terrible president. Such things include pulling out of the Kyoto Protocol to decrease greenhouse gases in our environments, and his administrations ties to corporate america, and giving tax cuts to the rich 1% of the US while middle and lower class citizens suffered. He shows how the US is run by big corporations, and how the Bush administration is corrupt.

    Book Two - Dude Where's My Country? (Michael Moore, 2003)

    I was so impressed with Michael Moore's witty style of writing, and his ballsy attitude that I bought his next book, "Dude, Where's My Country". This book causes many to question what really happened on September 11th, and calls out Bush on his invasion of Iraq. He also links Bush and his administration to oil companies and further exploits their quest for oil. Many say Moore is not a journalist, but he has pages upon pages of references in the back of his books.

    Book Three - The Bourne Identity (Robert Ludlum, 1984)

    I bought this book because of my love for both Bourne movies. I was surprised how mcuh the movie deviated away from the book, and quite frankly, I like the book more. There's many more interesting events and action sequences. Ludlum is a great writer, very descriptive.

    I'd give a 10/10 to all of these books and highly recommend them.

    LOL. Where's he lied? I dare you to tell me. You're just one of those Moore-hating bandwagon joiners. I'd give you quotes from all of those people and you'd be sickened by the crap they say.

    I never read a books but for some reason I picked up a book to read this summer out of boredom.

    I am currently reading "The Boy Who Went Away" by Eli Gottlieb (1997)
    It's about this 14 year old boy who is confused about the world and witnesses his mom's affair and his dad drinking too much. It's basically a coming of age story. It's pretty good so far but I'm not finished with it yet.

    If you haven't seen the movie, how do you know it's full of lies? Don't believe the crap the media is spewing out. And there's nothing wrong with standing up an having an opinion on your leader. I asked you to tell me where the lies are, but you don't know where they are because you base oyur opinion on the opinions of others instead of finding out for yourself.

    Anne Coulter is anti-environment, wants to physically intimidate liberals with threats of death, and is racist towards the religions of others;

    "God says; 'Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It's Yours'."
    "We need to execute people like John Walker in order to physically intimidate liberals, by making them realize that they can be killed, too. Otherwise they will turn out to be outright traitors!"
    "We should invade those countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to christianity. [On Sept. 11 terrorists]

    Bill O'Reilly is a jackass. he hates middle-class and lwoer-class america like most republicans;

    "It is true that if you are poor and can't afford a good lawyer, your odds of going to prison skyrocket. But you know what? Tough!"

    Rush Limbaugh is evil;

    "Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society."

    Sean Hannity is pure-liberal hating, canada-bashing fool;

    "You guys onthe left, you weren't there in the cold war, you're not here now. If we ever listen to you, we're all going to be bowing at the feet of some dictator somewhere else!" [LOL.]
    "Canada is a left-wing socialist basket case. What kind of friends are they?"

    It sickens me.

    Typical republican reply. I predicted that. I'll take that as a concedence because you still don't show facts to prove me wrong. Either you're uncommited to proving me wrong or you know you're wrong but are too stubborn to realize it.

    Anyways, back on topic. Sorry about that everyone, but baseless crap like that boils my blood. :lol:

    :lol:. I laugh at your cluelessness.

    Oh, I forgot. I read two books from the Alias series. If you like the show, you'll like the books.

    Now let's get this back on topic. Have anything else to say? PM me. I'd gladly show you you're a blind-conservatist who cares solely about money and not about the middle/lwoer class people, the environment, or why many inncoent lives are being lost from ficitious facts doctored to join a war.
