Book Description :

Housing policy not only aff ects all Americans' quality of life, but has a direct impact on their fi nancial well being. About 70 percent of American households own their own homes, and for most, their homes represent the majority of their net worth. Renters are aff ected by housing policy. Even the small minority of Americans who are homeless are aff ected by housing policies specifi cally targeted to low-income individuals. The government's increasing involvement in housing markets, fed by popular demand that government "do something" to address real problems of mortgage defaults and loans, provides good reason to take a new look at the public sector in housing markets. Crises in prime mortgage lending may lower the cost of housing, but the poor and homeless cannot benefi t because of increases in unemployment. Even the private market is heavily regulated. Government policies dictate whether people can build new housing on their land, what type of housing they can build, the terms allowed in rental contracts, and much more. This volume considers the eff ects of government housing policies and what can be done to make them work better. It shows that many problems are the result of government rules and regulations. Even in a time of foreclosures, the market can still do a crucial a job of allocating resources, just as it does in other markets. Consequently, the appropriate policy response may well be to signifi cantly reduce, not increase, government presence in housing markets. Housing America is a courageous and comprehensive eff ort to examine housing policies in the United States and to show how such policies aff ect the housing market.

Book Description :

How well do we know our country? Whom do we include when we use the word "American"? These are not just contemporary issues but recurring questions Americans have asked themselves throughout their history--and questions that were addressed when, in 1935, the Roosevelt administration created the Federal Writers' Project (FWP) under the aegis of the Works Progress Administration. Although the immediate context of the FWP was work relief, national FWP officials developed programs that spoke to much larger and longer-standing debates over the nature of American identity and culture and the very definition of who was an American. Hirsch reviews the founding of the FWP and the significance of its American Guide series, considering the choices made by administrators who wanted to celebrate diversity as a positive aspect of American cultural identity. In his exploration of the FWP's other writings, Hirsch discusses the project's pioneering use of oral history in interviews with ordinary southerners, ex-slaves, ethnic minorities, and industrial workers. He also examines congressional critics of the FWP vision; the occasional opposition of local Federal Writers, especially in the South; and how the FWP's vision changed in response to the challenge of World War II. In the course of this study, Hirsch raises thought-provoking questions about the relationships between diversity and unity, government and culture, and, ultimately, culture and democracy.

Book Description :

The Conning of America examines for the first time from a literary perspective the propaganda writings produced in the United States during the period of World War I. This American propaganda literature was written in two distinct stages: the first stage was written by the pro-War establishment based on the East Coast of the United States before American entry into the conflict. It attempted to vilify Germany and her Allies while at the same time showing England, France, and Russia as the victims of a well-planned organized German plan for world domination—beginning with the invasion of neutral Belgium. The literature urged the United States to prepare for a German invasion of America and to be wary of German-Americans, who most likely were spies in the employ of the Imperial German government. The second stage of propaganda literature occurred when America declared war on the Central Powers in April 1917.While still using the blood thirsty militaristic Hun as a symbol of German inherent evil, the propaganda literature began to portray the Americans as the saviors of European culture. American boys were being sent to Europe on a spiritual mission to purify decadent European culture, while at the same time their sacrifice would rejuvenate and sanctify American values in the fire of the conflict in order for America to take her proper place in the new post-war order.

Book Description :

This is an excellent book for people who are tired and fed up with what they see happening to their country. Whether it's failing schools, a failing federal government, a failing economy, huge debt, and massive unemployment, you'll want to read this book. Hollywood is a cesspool, likened to Soddom and Gomorrah, RAP music offends almost everyone, and is full of degrading lyrics; the whole alternative energy push by this President is a scam; man-made global warming is another big scam, and Al Gore is making tens of millions of dollars from it. What's all this stuff about diversity being good for America? Show me. You want alternative energy to replace oil? It'll be here in about 25 years; get over it. Our federal government is broken, out of control, and arrogant, and unable to effectively govern. We should toss them all out and start over, using the Constitution as the standard for office. It's all in here, and it is most assuredly politically incorrect. The author does not subscribe to Cultural Marxism from which politically correct evolved. If you are easily offended, don't read this book because if you're offended, it's your problem, not his. This is volume 1 in what the author believes will be a 3-volume set, and he goes after all of the bad people, bad groups, and bad ideas.

Book Description :

In 1945, the United States was the most powerful nation in the world. But an "Iron Curtain" soon surrounded Eastern Europe, and by 1950, Americans were fighting in Korea. In 1952, "I Like IKE!" swept the nation, and the Fabulous Fifties began. GM sold the most cars, gas was 29 cents a gallon, and a new house cost $9,000. In 1955, following President Eisenhower's "mild" heart attack, America's favorite "sick joke" had Vice President Dick Nixon greeting Ike at the White House by saying, "Welcome back. . . May I race you up the stairs?" The Fabulous Fifties of Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley gave way to riots, Hippies, and The Beatles during the Radical Sixties. The 1960's began with JFK's "New Frontier," grew into LBJ's "Great Society" and the Vietnam War, and ended with Nixon's "Silent Majority" and men on the moon. Soon, Nixon resigned, Ford stumbled, Carter's brother sold "Billy Beer," and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo led the popular "Reagan Revolution." In 1989, Reagan's "Evil Empire" collapsed. Soon, George Bush was victorious over Iraq and Panama, and lost to Bill Clinton in 1992. Clinton was eventually impeached, and was later replaced by another Bush. Want more details? Read my book.
