9780061133015: 100 Ways America is Screwing Up the World

This title offers a serious-minded - but often humourous - look at the bad example set by the greatest nation to the rest. A response to right-wing screeds, this is a look at how the greatest nation on earth is setting a bad example from politics to agriculture to pop culture, and what should be done to correct the course. With it's revered ideals, can-do spirit, and unlimited strength, America has been a beacon of inspiration for the world. Yet today, the policies espoused by political and business leaders in power are damaging our reputation and setting a terrible precedent. Taking a page from the right's playbook, Tirman uses the same take-no-prisoners style to argue for the liberal agenda, showing how such bad influences as George W. Bush, WalMart, Halliburton, gangsta rap, Disney, SUVs, Marlboros, and Chicago Bulls jerseys are hurting us and the world. "100 Ways America Is Screwing Up The World" is an intelligent, powerful call to arms for Blue America and its allies worldwide.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 129 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. What do George W. Bush, Wal-Mart, Halliburton, gangsta rap, and SUVs have in common? They re all among the hundred ways in which America is screwing up the world. The country that was responsible for many, if not most, of the twentieth century s most important scientific and technological advancements now demonizes its scientists and thinkers in the twenty-first, while dumbing down its youth with anti-Darwin/pro- Intelligent Design propaganda. The longtime paragon of personal freedoms now supports torture and illegal wiretapping#8212spreading its principles and policies at gunpoint while ruthlessly bombing the world with Big Macs and Mickey Mouse ears. At once serious-minded and satirical, John Tirman s 100 Ways America Is Screwing Up the World is an insightful, unabashed, entertaining, and distressing look at where we ve gone terribly wrong#8212from the destruction of the environment to the promotion of abhorrent personal health and eating habits to the wussification of the free press#8212an alternately admonishing and amusing call to arms for patriotic Blue America.
