|Maxedout: When Hurricane Katrina ravaged Americas Gulf Coast, it laid bare an uncomfortable reality-America is not only far from the worlds wealthiest nation; it is crumbling beneath a staggering burden of individual and government debt. Maxed Out takes us on a journey deep inside the American debt-style, where everything seems okay as long as the minimum monthly payment arrives on time Blue Gold: This award winning documentary directed by Sam Bozzo is based on the book BLUE GOLD: THE FIGHT TO STOP THE CORPORATE THEFT OF THE WORLDS WATER by Maude Barlow and Tony Clark. The film examines the problems created by the privatization and commoditization of water. Contains 30 minutes of bonus material, including deleted scenes and an interview with the filmmaker. hallowed Grounds: A rare visit to Americas extraordinary overseas military cemeteries in England, France, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium, Italy, Tunisia and the Philippines. Bombs, Bullets and Fraud: If your spouse wanted a job with the US Post Office, you may not find cause for alarm, right? But if the branch they are looking into is Postal Inspection, you might think again. Inspectors work to nail criminals on the vanguard of high stakes crime such as identity theft and bank fraud. Often it is a violent, deadly vocation. "Bombs, Bullets and Fraud" chronicles the history of this little known area of the government, from its inception in 1772 to its work curtailing stagecoach robberies in the Old West, and capturing the Unabomber in the 90s The end of America: The End of America details the ten steps a country takes when it slides toward fascism. Its not a "lefty"tot tome, rather a historical look at trends in once-functioning democracies from modern history that are being repeated in our country today. It gives any reader (or viewer of the lecture) a much-needed history lesson and constitutional refresher. Most importantly, it puts the recent gradual loss of civil liberties in the U.S. in a historical context. The average American might not be alarmed at AT&T selling our private information to the Bush administration, but when this action is seen as part of a larger series of erosions and events, a pattern emerges with unfortunate consequences that become disturbingly clear.
