Cure Your Democracy

The Infection, Spread and Treatment of Contagious Opinions

by John Cooker

Book Image Not Available
Overview
A LOL satirical look at political partisanship and why Washington is so dysfunctional. To quote a reviewer: "This book hits the nail on the head, given the insanity of the political climate in Washington DC these days. Wildly humorous and insightful. I feared I was infected when I read the back cover, and subsequent reading of the book confirmed my fears. I've started the 12-Step Treatment, but it's slow going."
Description
There's an epidemic sweeping across America but no one's taking it seriously. The infected look like normal Americans, at first, but then they open their mouths and foreign words leap out known only to inhabitants of their special nation: left coaster, mama grizzly, Obamacare, drill baby drill; or neocon, glass ceiling, teabagger, I didn't inhale. Drop the word "multiculturalism" and half of them will have an immediate allergy-like reaction. Their faces will turn red with fever as they glide away from you. Drop the phrase "lamestream media" and the other half will cringe and hold their brow with a splitting headache as they back away from you. These otherwise normal Americans are obviously suffering from something. The author in this pioneering book has discovered what that is: severe, extremely contagious viral illnesses that are plaguing the entire country. He reveals here in layman's terms the infection, spread and treatment of these viruses. They make us insanely ill and susceptible to conspiracy theories, and are so easily passed between individuals by speeches, handshakes and karaoke. He discovers Viral Media is not just a figurative expression. One morning an infamous radio personality spouts off a misinformed, belligerent opinion. By that afternoon the author's research subjects are repeating it with the same fever and refudiation. The viral words of the opinion had infected them and seemed to have taken possession of their minds like some voodoo zombie incantation. No one is safe and many are contaminated. Treatments are provided so that they may become virus free and regain the ability to associate with those "other" Americans-those infected with the opposing virus. If you are tired of the partisan arguing in our great country, this book is guaranteed to lift you to higher ground and make you LOL. Show More Show Less
About the author
John Cooker emigrated from Ukraine after the fall of the Communist Wall. He apparently is immune to the viruses, possibly owing to many generations of daily administering homemade vodka in his family tree, or perhaps the former USSR had some secret inoculation against them that it gave all its comrades when babes, as current undemocratic circumstances may attest to. His name is actually spelled Kuker, but was changed when being processed in the Immigration Department because service agents couldn’t roll the r. It’s pronounced kookar (rolled r). After learning English very good, he graduated from Harvard Online in 2008 with a certificate of MRI. Harvard Online is a distance learning center based in Muncie, Indiana offering a prestigious online curriculum as seen in infomercials, and isn’t affiliated with Harvard University of Cambridge, Massachusetts. MRI is the abbreviated credential of Medical Research Interpreter, a growing field in high demand (according to the matchbook cover advertisement) that’s too new to be recognized by the American College Association for degree accreditation. Many people cannot understand their doctors, diseases or procedures they must have. An MRI explains them in plain English.
