Why is your brother-in-law concerned about the Estate Tax? Why do millionaire news reporters get everything wrong? Why are blood-sucking teachers bankrupting America?
Jimmy Dore, the comedy darling of America's Progressive Left, answers all these questions and more! In this laugh-out-loud collection of essays that are both street-smart and informed, Jimmy sets out to discover what's wrong. Crackling with caustic wit and insight, no aspect of American life is safe from Jimmy's hilarious scrutiny. He gets to the heart of the issues: why Republicans should support gay marriage or why the President shouldn't have Secret Security until the country has gun control, bringing clarity and hilarity to the incoherent noise of our punditocracy.
This outrageously entertaining manifesto is an excellent resource for those who have survived long arguments during family dinners. And in a media environment dominated by corporate interests, Jimmy's take-no-prisoners approach is fearless: going after both political parties, and all corners of mainstream news. A David against an army of Goliaths.
Equal measures of silliness and spleen-venting, Your Country Is
Just Not That Into You is the most oddly uplifting political book of
the year.

Hell's bells! This book should be read just for the title.
Anything would be an improvement on those books written by the hacks at the NY Times and Washington Post [or is that the Bezos Post?].

A stand up comic since the 1990s and frequent commentator on youtube's "The Young Turks," Jimmy Dore is frank, honest, and funny.
