    It's always interesting to read a pundit's book years later I'll have to catch up with him and see what he thinks about the current administrationI agree with a lot of what he says but I think he oversimplifies the immigration issue For instance he makes no distinction between immigrants and refugees

    This book was written in 2006 I was not sure how pertinent it would be for today It is a concise account how damaging different factors added to the decline of the middle class Fascinating logically true and worth understanding how this group in particular was ignored and needed change

    The chapter on lobbying and lobbyists will make you angry and ready to incur violence against the government if you are like me The chapter on immigration while it is obviously Dobbs' pet issue will leave you scratching your head wondering where they come up with their hard and fast statistics on an undocumented group of peopleBut most disappointing is the How to fight back part the only memorable soultion bei

    Good book to read around tax time I agree that we definitely need to fix our education system and maybe some of the other problems will also be solved We have an education system developed for the industrial revolution It is time to change it How about where children learn at their own pace and they don't move on until they have mastered the

War on the Middle Class How the Government Big Business and Special Interest Groups Are Waging War onthe American Dream and How to Fight Back

He middle class has never been so vulnerable Its every feature is under assault by politicians and the lobbyists who court them big business corporations that are sending their jobs overseas and a media that relies on sensationalism instead of facts when reporting the news In a sweeping analysis Dobbs looks at every aspect of the decline of the middle class from a lack of political representation to America’s corrupt health care system to demonstrate how the gap between Ameri. As a conservative I appreciate the way this book got me invested in certain causes I normally associate with Democrats For one thing Dobbs spends a lot of time castigating major corporations for their reckless business practices something liberals are always wailing about but Dobbs actually gives stats and factual evidence to show why his attacks are warranted This isn t just a they make a lot of money so they must be evil approach to the topic Instead of just saying that CEOs are paid too much and then uoting some astronomical number Dobbs shows how CEOs from various companies work together to get their salaries approved regardless of performance It s very much a you scratch my back and I ll scratch yours kind of thing which was never explained to me before Before reading this book I was willing to give CEOs the benefit of the doubt that they might actually be EARNING their outrageous salariesDobbs also has a lot to say on such topics as outsourcing lobbying illegal immigration and health care The health care bits are where the book really shows its age It was written nearly a decade ago He criticizes both the Right and the Left for their handling of these issues and it s refreshing to see a journalist in this day and age refusing to play partisan politics Although a self described liberal Republican Dobbs is especially harsh in his treatment of George W Bush though I can t imagine he d be any easier on Barak Obama had this book come out a few years laterDobbs is great at identifying major problems with the way America is being run but I m less convinced of the value of his proposed solutions His idea for fixing the health care system sounds a little too much like Obamacare and his idea for fixing public education uncomfortably resembles Common Core However Dobbs doesn t go into enough detail for me to know whether or not those national travesties accurately resemble the sort of thing he had in mind This is perhaps the only political book I ve ever read that could resonate with both the Tea Party movement and the Occupy Wall Street crowd If our divided country ever becomes once again united in purpose I imagine it will be largely thanks to people like Lou Dobbs and books like WAR ON THE MIDDLE CLASS

Ca’s newest haves and have nots is no longer merely financial but instead includes the erosion of education employment government and community Dobbs proposes a series of measures to resolve each issue and incite people whose future is being mortgaged to benefit a powerful few to preserve their rights and dreams War on the Middle Class is provocative incendiary and bound to be widely discussed the perfect book to establish the terms of debate in this year’s midterm election. I really like Lou Dobbs while I pretty much think CNN is useless I do find his show to be pretty good Great book If you really want to know what s going on with regard to politics business policypractice etc in this country read this He doesn t engage in name calling mudslinging or any of that sort of stuff He DOES provide facts to back up his claims and plenty of credible resources to back up his facts Lest you think he s merely pandering to the Republican party he begins the book by telling the reader that he can t take seriously anyone who takes either party Republican or Democrat seriouslybecause neither party takes YOU seriously Lou is very honest about saying that he is a conservative and a registered Republicanthen he goes on to bash many of the very policies that party backs My only complaint is that he does refer often to his show and at times it seems that he s trying to drum up viewers This is the only reason I gave the book 4 instead of 5 stars

Prominent CNN host and commentator Lou Dobbs unleashes his manifesto on the vanishing American dream Through his nightly CNN show Lou Dobbs Tonight his syndicated radio program and his monthly magazine column Lou Dobbs has become one of America’s most visible popular and respected voices on business and financial matters Now with War on the Middle Class Dobbs takes an impassioned and rousing stance on the all out class war that is turning the American dream into a nightmare T. I liked Lou Dobbs ideology He too has concluded that neither the Democrats nor the Republicans are looking out for the interest of the large middle class He encourages all to register as independents so we can force the major parties to address the real issues that make a difference in our livesHe accuses both parties of thriving on divisive issues for which there will never be agreement and which limit discussion about the things that matter most He contends that politics is controlled by special interests there are lobbyists than Congressional staff He concludes that few decisions are made based on their long term impact on society but rather on their reelection value satisfying constituents pork big business tax policy unions tariffs etcWhen will we ever get term limits enacted What about elimination of conflicts of interest we do this with judges and attorneys not an off the wall ideal When will we conclude as a society that our governing representatives need to be law abiding citizens presidential perjury congressional tax fraud military torture etc We are beginning to reap what we have sown It seems clear that our representatives have concluded that they are not bound by the law of the harvest I hope my cynicism is ill placed but I fear it is not
