    110? That's just the basic list...there are so many more!!

    I kept seeing Bernie on Fox News as a commentator and decided to check out his book. Needless to say, his book is an open commentary on the great divide separating many Americans today (religious vs. atheist, life versus death, Democrat vs. Republican, church versus state, conservative vs. liberal, pro-abortion vs. pro-life and so on). Anyone who says there is no divide is clueless and should just move on - don't bother reading it - you won't get it. If you are not on the list, chances are you should be! I enjoyed reading '110 People Who Are Screwing Up America' and like millions of others, chuckled in some parts, shook my head in agreement in others and simply felt relieved to know that the divide is real. Many major media outlets, teachers, professors in college settings, hollywood elitists and others pretend the only issue is 'everyone else'. Thank goodness for people like Bernie and their ability speak out against this crowd. Our voice may not be as loud or shrill as the other side but, we are here and we will fight the good fight to make America the kind of country we all deserve it to be. Anything less is a crime against our forefathers and our military men and women who have fought/continue to fight so hard for a glorious and free America. I enjoyed reading the list of offense hollywood actors/actresses, singers, teachers/professors, politicians, writers, directors, business people, religious or otherwise who have lost their mind and clearly their heart and soul somewhere along the way (although they would argue the science of even having a mind, heart or soul but, that's another book...). Keep up the good work Bernie...keep adding to the list and we'll keep reading. You have done a fine job of identifying the nut jobs in our midst from sea to shining sea. Four stars and then some!

    Quite entertaining

    I'm not one to read books about the evils or the Right and Left, but the title of this book caught my eye and I picked it up. If you are looking for poignant and stinging commentary on some of today's 'movers and shakers', this is an entertaining read. Those without a sense of humor, need not apply.

    Love when people tell it like it is.

    Right on the mark in most cases. Intelligent people can see clearly with a little chuckle along the way. However, it is very sad that our children have these bozo's to look up to. What ever happend to society, most of these folks are to blame. Time for America to clean up it's act, and stop talking dirty. I loved this book, its just what I thought everytime one of these 110 people are in the news.

    Not Bad

    If I were to rate this book on whether or not I agreed with his choices it would of been 5 stars. Benard Goldberg said no 2 people would agree on who the 100 people they would put into the list, however I would have 95% of the people he put in there. The other 5% I never heard of. It is not a great piece of literature, but very entertaining and the perfect book to read on a long plane ride. It does list why people are listed, and despite its large number of left wing hacks listed in the book, it is also filled with people on the right, and ever more so, alot of people not even involved in politics. It is a great list of people who have taken American culture backwards. I would like to see Bernard Goldberg make a book called 100 people who are NOT screwing up America, it is time to read something positive for a change, but who am I fooling, negativity sells.

    One scary book!

    Though the author exhibits a great sense of humor, this book should scare any reasonable American. This is a glimpse at 110 people, some who are idolized by our culture, that are threatening the future of this nation.

    Loved it!

    I loved it. Had anyone bothered to read the back he CLEARLY states the they are HIS opinions, and no two people are going to agree with everyone on the list. As far as the Bush Administration screwing up America..whatever you have your opinions. Write your own book if you think you have a better handle on life and the reality of the world.

    Enjoyable Read

    Anyone going into this book thinking it's anything other than a diatribe against the left is going to be disappointed - not to mention naive. As with any book by political demagogues (e.g., M. Moore, A. Coulter), this is not intended to be an objective work, and Goldberg doesn't present it as such. Having said that, if you do happen to agree with the author's political orientation, you'll find it to be amusing and informative.

    Interesting, though I don't always agree

    I just read this book, and though I don't think fools like Matthew lesko or people like Eve Ensler should be on it, I am glad Ted Rall is on it-I am a moderate liberal, and I get annoyed at my extreme bretheren-stop complaining so you can get elected!!

    America the Beautifull!

    This book shows you how different people affect the society that we live in. It is the basis for what makes America and what makes us. it shows us how different people influence us in the decisions that we make.
