Convention of Statesmen


Review of An Inconvenient Book by Glenn Beck

We stood in line for awhile. I took my nieces to the bathroom twice. It was overcast, thank goodness, because it was in the high 90's in the line the mall insisted wind outside the bookstore instead of through the mall. Ran to pick up one more book for my mom and missed Glenn Beck altogether. Sheesh, no luck o' the Irish there. My leprochauns were clearly on vacation, but I did walk away with an unsigned copy and a signed copy of An Inconvenient Book by Glenn Beck. My sister was with me, so she got the signed copies. Because I love my mom so much, she gets the signed copy.

All that being said, 'WOW!'

He is so funny and right on the money with the state of the nation today. I have so much respect for this man, his willingness to read, study and learn until he gained the complete understanding of our Founding Fathers and the incredible Constitution America has.

So let's start by taking a look at the backliner endorsement Beck garnered with his comedic and political brilliance. My 2 Cents are in the parentheses:

Robert Kennedy -- "Glenn Beck is CNN'S chief corporate-fascism advocate." (So that's how a liberal looks at the stark truth staring him in the face.)

Stephen King -- "Satan's mentally challenged younger brother." (Hello pot!)

Rolling Stone -- "Beck's [show] has to be one of the weirdest news programs in American history." (Well yeah, he tells the truth!)

I didn't put them all the backliner quotes on here, but this book is so funny. On almost every page a text box is included called A.D.D. Moment and boy are they hysterical. I just about fell off the couch laughing when I read Glenn's version of the trash-talk between Thomas Jefferson and Charles Cotesworth Pinkney who were running against each other for the Presidency. Page 120 is where it begins and tears were rolling down my face as I turned page after page reading the boxes instead of the book. I had to go back and read the book afterward, very, very good.

My favorite quote on global warming: "Polar Bears May Turn to Cannibalism," ABC News, June 13, 2006 -- This one is a little confusing. I guess I don't want a bunch of cuddly white-furred Jeffrey Dahmers lounging around in the Arctic, but what kind of polar bears are we talking about? The cute animated ones from the Coke commercials or the real ones that could rip your chest open as if it's the plastic wrap on a package of ground beef? If it's those polar bears, then let 'em eat each other."

A number of serious topics are addressed in this book, such as: the validity of global warming, marriage and pornography, American dependence on foreign oil, the UN, illegal immigration, Islamic fascism, and much, much more.

I seriously like the way this man thinks. The chapter on Islamic fascism is fantastic. He just tells it like it is. Using Europe as the example of where our nation is headed if we don't put a stop to it now.

This book gets a serious "two thumbs up." This one goes on the bookshelf in the living room to be pulled out often to remind ourselves of how things really stand, oh yeah, and laugh. A lot!
