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 ›
The book is a quick, compelling read grouped by topic. Those who pay attention to a lot of news may be familiar with many of the stories, but it's nice to have a refresher all in one place.
Definitely recommended for those who get a chuckle out of the title and even for those who don't.
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."
