"War is a Racket"! (COMEDY audio)

Watching the news is maddening: the lies, spin, military-industrial mainstream media
Jimmy Dore live stand up (see more clips at or on YouTube (YT)

“Jimmy Dore is: outrageous and outraged, bothersome and bothered, and a crucial, profane, passionate voice for progressives and free-thinkers in 21st century America. This book will anger you if you’re a conservative and enrage you if you’re a liberal. Enjoy!” 
— Patton Oswalt
  • 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? 

More stuff happened and we make fun of it! 
  • War Is A Racket! And they knew it back in 1935 [because U.S. General Smedley D. Butler told everyone in his book, War is a Racket]. ISIS is the newest boogeyman invented to get us into another  pointless war.
  • Ted Cruz is for the Jews and gets booed!
  • Graham Elwood of ”Comedy Film Nerds” podcast
Your Country Is Just Not...
Jimmy 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 Service security until the country has gun control, bringing clarity and hilarity to the incoherent noise of our punditocracy.
Catch me co-hosting The Young Turks
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.
