I love Michael Moore's documentaries - they are funny, reflect on real events and always get my mind moving. With that in mind, picking up this book just seemed so natural! I found a copy at a local charity book sale and I figured, why not read it?

Unfortunately, I didn't love it as much as I thought I would have. I really think this book would have been better in film form (for me, anyways). I loved Michael's unique and funny style of crafting the narrative in this book but I just couldn't keep a hold on it. I had to read it a little bit at a time, and some of it just went over my head (that's what I get for keeping up with Canadian politics instead of American).

This book takes a look at the September 11th terror attacks and all the strange occurrences around it. The highest praise I can give this book is that it really got me thinking, and that is high praise!! Not often do I get to pick up a book that makes me think and connect the dots. The funny commentary made it even better since it didn't make the book feel like a textbook. If I had history classes with this sort of humor then I would have loved those classes!

In my opinion, this book is in a niche market. People are either going to get butt hurt over the funny commentary laced with terrorist attacks or they are not going to understand the humor. Michael Moore has a very specific sense of sarcasm that some people just don't get. I do think this is a great book and if you enjoy Michael's past work, then you'll enjoy this one! If you're easily offended, this book won't be for you!

Three out of five stars! ( )

Moore’s films, but this book wandered into some strange alleys. He is really pissed at the Bush admin here and pushing for a 2004 upset. He’s also really angry at the Democrats for not being effective.

I learned about some despicable capitalist practices, such as ‘dead peasant insurance’ aka ‘dead janitor insurance.’
Because the term liberal was poison at the time, he pulls out the dictionary and explains what it means and that most people hold that life attitude, without admitting the term to themselves. Then he explained to a nominal business owner why liberal policies would benefit his bottom line. It was a good argument.

Finally, he suggested local “I Voted” lotteries for the evenings of election days, in order to encourage voter participation. He’s done this in Michigan with prizes of $1000 or even a car in one instance.

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... ( )

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.

(Complaining about Democrat inaction)
One thing we know is that people will vote for an independent candidate, as Jesse Ventura showed us.  Perot did incredibly well; imagine what a sane person could do.
