Abstract:

Have you ever wondered why some of the biggest problems plaguing America never seem to get fixed? The reason is simple: the solutions just aren't very convenient. Fortunately, radio and television host Glenn Beck doesn't care much about convenience; he cares about common sense. With refreshing honesty, over-the-top humor, a ton of research, and not an ounce of polictical correctness, Glenn Beck takes on everything from global warming (all the stuff you'll never see in an Al Gore slide show.) to terrorism (Radical Islamists say the darndest things!) from illegal immigration(MexAmeriCanada: It's not all bad!) to the great Circle of Life (marriage, porn, adultery, divorce) ... and so much more. His eye-opening, "why have I never heard that before?" facts and priceless observations will leave you wondering how political pandering, special interests, and outright stupidity have led us so far astray!
