Have you seen this?

azgoddess shouted out about this book last week. I think it needs more attention. We need more outrage about what we are letting our executive misleaders accomplish with our money and our country.

Publisher's Weekly: The former president of Ford and Chrysler, is back to sound a howl of anger against the sad state of leadership in the U.S. today. Iacocca gives a rundown of sins committed by George W. Bush and his administration.

Booklist: Iacocca is outraged. Now 82, he has seen the U.S. overcome some of its worst crises, including the Great Depression and World War II, through great leadership. As the CEO of Chrysler Corporation, he brought the company back from the brink of bankruptcy and worked with the government to overcome the fallout from the 1970s oil crisis. Now, he says, our government has fallen under the grip of arrogant ideologues and spineless detractors.

"Had Enough?

Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder. We've got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, "Stay the course."

Stay the course? You've got to be kidding. This is America, not the damned Titanic. I'll give you a sound bite: Throw the bums out!"

"I'll go a step further. You can't call yourself a patriot if you're not outraged. This is a fight I'm ready and willing to have. "

Outrage? I got plenty of that but what the hell do we do with it? As long as bush has support and not a orange jumpsuit, it's just going to get worse.

Sounds like a must read. But those who need to read it the most, never will. The rest of us who have been paying attention are already way past outrage.
