Remember when we all thought it couldn't get much worse? Before bomb-happy Bush and his best friend Tony decided to wage a war that no one(in their right minds) wanted? Before he wheedled more tax cuts to grease the pockets of his rich cronies? Before Saddam and his weapons of mass disappearance vanished (using the same travel agent as Osama Bin Laden . . .)? Well, now the world's Bushwhacked. It's time for the good ol' boy to head for the hills, and Mike's on a mission to smoke him out at the next election - and help ordinary people get their country back. What's more, he's going to use hisshare of the tax cut to do it. But that's not all. He also trashes Murdoch's media; campaigns for a President Oprah; reveals the truth about his Oscar Shock and Awe; offers a Quick and Easy Guide to preventing future terrorist attacks and some handy tips on 'How to Talk to Your Conservative Brother-in-Law'! Hilarious, rollicking, outrageous and in-your-face, Dude, Where's My Country?could just change your life . . .… (mais)

I enjoy Michael Moore's documentaries, but never read his books -- this was a mistake. Though he takes that same, homeboy tone as his documentaries, the books are filled with footnotes documenting every source, every article, every fact he presents making the book a great place to read for yourself what the president said when, what was done and by whom. This book was about the second President Bush's ties to the Saudis and what this had to do with Bush's response to 9/11 (among other things). It is a terrifying look into the lies, the manipulation, the MONEY in politics, in this case under Bush. Michael Moore is outraged, and reading this book reminds us (so easy to forget under Trump) that just because a former president is not a sociopathic narcissist does NOT make him a good guy. ( )

Moore Bush bashing but he does make you stop and think about all the ties the Bushes have and why some decisions were made... ( )

This was written in 2003 on the eve of the 2004 election, to try to elect a president better for the country than W. Alas, we had to suffer Bush for 4 more years. Michael Moore is funny, self-righteous, a social liberal and a patriot, which I am not. He goes to great lengths to prove his contentions--the sources & notes are pages 219-246. Oh how sad it is that now we look upon the Bush years as good times. He may have been a war-monger, and made some very bad decisions, but at least he wasn't corrupt. But maybe those decisions in the Bush years led us to this despicable frightening abysmal horrifying shameful Trumpian moment. ( )

I keep thinking of people that I'd like to give a copy of this book to. I'm not saying that I agree with everything Michael Moore says, but how nice to have someone easy to read, articulate and FUNNY to express the many of the things that Carl and I have been saying for the past couple of years. Yes, I realize that the current United States political scene is so polarized -- and especially with only weeks to go before the election -- that I'll probably have all kinds of people unsubscribe from the MostlyFiction.com newsletter before they even get to the end of this paragraph.

The objection that commentators of the right make about Michael Moore is, generally, that his arguments are facile. To be perfectly honest, I had suspected this myself, and moreover found the title "Stupid White Men" - and, for that matter, "Dude, Where's My Country?" - to be controversialist purely for the sake of attracting young, impressionable readers. Plus there was the fact that, from what I gathered, his written works seemed very much to be preaching to the choir. One does not have to work very hard at all to make me see that George W Bush is not a legitimately elected president - the basic theme of Stupid White Men.

Can the left communicate to a wide popular audience? Can it free itself of the prison of jargon? Can it reach out to the unconverted? New Labour and its co-thinkers in the Democratic party decided the only answer was to stop being on the left. Michael Moore has chosen the opposite route, and proved that it can work. His Stupid White Men sold 600,000 in the UK and several million in the US, which, he dryly recounts in his new book, qualified him for Bush's infamous tax cut. He helpfully provides a copy of the federal tax form for refunds of $1 million or more, and promises his benefactor, George W, that he'll "spend it all to get rid of you".

Gone are the days when the British broadcaster Gilbert Harding could safely satirise the asinine question on the United States visa card that asks whether the visitor intends to overthrow the government of the republic. “Sole purpose of visit,” was Harding’s merry reply. The same answer today might earn the joker a one-way ticket to Guantanamo Bay.

I love listening to people's stories about where they were and what they were doing on the morning of 9/11, especially the stories from the ones who, through luck or fate, were allowed to live. (Introduction)
At first, it seemed like a small plane had accidentally flown into the north tower of the World Trade Center.
