2003-2005 talk topics[edit]

It is part of the style that book titles should be italicised, for example see; Ulysses (novel), Finnegans Wake, The Shining, Night Shift, War and Peace, Anna Karenina.


Moving all the quotes here, since they're completely uninformative. Stan 12:54 21 Jul 2003 (UTC)

And they really don't serve much purpose here, either. I'm deleting them. -Joshuapaquin 23:59, May 12, 2005 (UTC)

This page looks like nothing more than an ad. If there is no encyclopedic content to be added, I will move it to VfD. Any objections from watchlisters? -Joshuapaquin 23:59, May 12, 2005 (UTC)

My objection: [1]. Kevin Baastalk: new 23:11, 2005 May 14 (UTC)

Don't understand why this warrants a "Category: George W. Bush". Only reference I can find is on Books about George W. Bush, which is itself a candidate for deletion. -Joshuapaquin 21:41, Jun 20, 2005 (UTC)

Greg Palast is one of the first guys screaming at the top of his lungs about disinfrancised black votes in florida. All the controversy there about miscounts were not because of broken machines, there was evidence that tens of thousands of voters had their rights revoked wrogly, or illegally. The reason why it took so long to recount the votes is because the case against the private company that was assigned the task of deleting illigitamate votes kept bouncing around fom one county court room to another. it ultimately ended in the supreme court, and the remaining votes were never counted, weather they were for kerry or bush. palast and his team with bbc was all over this. he was the one who broke the story overseas. That is significant. --Pointyfingers 02:39, 1 August 2005 (UTC)


This is a great book. Funny, incisive, well-researched, angry and backed up by documents. THere are no holes in the arguments like there are in Michael Moore. The best thing about Palast is his integrity. Give the man a knighthood.

Confusing Linearity[edit]

"The first chapter goes into great depth covering the Florida Central Voter File, commonly referred to as the Florida scrub list, starting with a Thomas Cooper who was prevented from voting in 2000 because of a supposed January 30, 2007 conviction date." This sentence makes no sense in that the man "Cooper" could not vote in 2000 because of a prior conviction in the future...? I have not read this book and have no knowledge of this; can someone who knows please change this? (talk) 05:35, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

That was in the book. The author seems to think that it makes no sense either, but he says that that was the contents of one of the records. (talk) 05:57, 9 October 2008 (UTC)


I removed the following and have placed it here:
