Another masterpiece by Matt Taibbi - The true and nothing but the truth

I was eagerly looking forward to Matt's new book after reading his work in Rolling Stone. Matt pulls no punches in the book and spotlights why our country is going down the drain. A terrific read - if you want to really understand the gang who put the economy where it...

Mildly Amusing

Taibbi writes for the choir. O.K. Fine. First he tells us he understands nothing about finance but then goes on to explain why the crash happened. What! He also misrepresents what the tea party is about. To his rigid, inflexable way of thinking, if you don't think like ...
Taibbi writes for the choir. O.K. Fine. First he tells us he understands nothing about finance but then goes on to explain why the crash happened. What! He also misrepresents what the tea party is about. To his rigid, inflexable way of thinking, if you don't think like him your the most racist, horrible, stupid person in the world.
It's the same crap I've heard from the left for the last 50 years.
This man is incapable of understanding any other opinion except his own. Like most political hacks, he is always on the attack. His rhetoric is that of the bull dozer and if your an informed person,
you know it's just mostly Bull!
