I have looked forward to reading this book for a while. I saw it on a shelf in Books-a-Million and decided to buy it later on for the kindle. I purchased it, but had not read it yet. Then I saw it was up for review and figured now would be a good time to read it.
Wow! It was even better than expected. Starnes' book is not only funny, but is very informative.
The whole premise of the book is about a statement Barack Obama made while running for president the first time. He said that everyday Americans were bitter and they cling to guns and religion. Starnes' travels around the US to show that the bitter ones are the left, not Middle America.
Todd's book is from a conservative point of view and it is a very fun read. He seems the kind of guy you would want to hang around. He shows that all of us "bitter Americans" can laugh.
My favorite part of the whole book is when he said we need a bailout for the poultry industry - we can call it "Cash for Cluckers" I laughed out loud!
With some of the foolish laws the left pass, we will either laugh or cry. They seem set on ruling everyone's life. They want to control what you eat, buy, watch, listen to and read, but they say we are the ones who censor. To the left, it seems everything good is bad and everything bad is good.
The stories he finds across America include:
*People being fired for sharing their faith.
*Children getting detention for reading the Bible.
*Laws forbidding certain foods and drinks.Read more ›
This book hits it out of the ballpark on the truth of the liberal media and the culture to redefine values and decency. When saying "Merry Christmas" is seen as a vulgarity, yet the gay culture can pull their doctrine...the truth will speak for itself.
I daresay that Most Americans will use this book to make some valuable decisions in the election to come and make the right choice. Truth will set people free.
I read most of this book while traveling on a plane. My husband kept saying, "Why are you giggling so much. People will think I'm tickling you." And I kept saying, "You've got to read this. It's hilarious, but unfortunately true."
In his most explosive adventure, Starnes uses fake Media Matters credentials to gain access to George Soros himself. In a taped five minute interview, Starnes completely embarrasses the billionaire socialist behind the Democratic Party, compelling Soros to admit to shocking deeds on tape. When Soros discovers the ruse, he orders his union thug guards to drag Todd Starnes into the bathroom, cover Todd Starnes with poop and pee, and flush Todd Starnes down the toilet.
Todd Starnes describes the incident -- which he calls "getting covered in poop and pee and flushed down the toilet" -- in graphic detail, explaining the deep humiliation he felt from being defecated on by five burly men, who held him down with their big muscly arms and threatened to kiss him. Starnes uses the flush episode to illustrate the love he feels for Christ in his heart and the warn against dangers of homosexual pornography.
But the poop and pee stories don't stop there. This book is chock full of Todd Starnes' riotous anecdotes about getting covered in poop and pee and flushed down the toilet by disgruntled liberals.Read more ›
