A Man Without a Country - Kurt Vonnegut

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Reading it kind of felt like sitting beside the crazy old man at the bar ranting about how everything has gone to the dogs. But since its Vonnegut, its not so much crazy as it is wickedly funny and at times insightful.
A quote: "Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college."

I'm reading Thorstein Veblen right now, something that would be considered intellectual. Danial Kaneman, Cuntman, Cousin? Who the fuck is that? Obvious Thorstein Veblen has had a far greater influence since his influential The Theory of the Leisure Class was published in 1899 then this loser children's author of children's story that your feeble mind finds entertaining.

Buzz off.
you so funny. Throwing a shit-fit and telling someone to be more mature about their choice. Smoke a rusty crack, you muckraker.

I just started The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress and it's very very good. I like Heinlein's writing style. I can also see this book being banned in the future as there are good ideas for revolt covering quite a few pages.
