It happens to all of us: You're minding your own business, when some idiot informs you that guns are evil, the Prius will save the planet, or the rich have to finally start paying their fair share of taxes.Just go away! you think to yourself -- but they only become more obnoxious. Your heart rate quickens. You start to sweat. You can't get away. Your only hope is this book.Glenn Beck, author of the number-one New York Times best sellers An Inconvenient Book and Glenn Beck's Common Sense, has stumbled upon the secret formula to winning arguments against people with big mouths but small minds: knowing the facts. And this book is full of them.The next time your idiot friends tell you how gun control prevents gun violence, you'll tell them all about England's handgun ban. When they tell you that we should copy the UK's health care system, you'll recount the horrifying facts you heard here. And the next time an idiot tells you that vegetable prices will skyrocket without illegal workers, you'll stop saying "No, they won't" and you'll start saying, "actually, eliminating all illegal labor will cause us to spend just $8 a year more on produce."Idiots can't be identified through voting records, they can be found only by looking for people who hide behind stereotypes, embrace partisanship, and believe that bumper-sticker slogans are a substitute for common sense. If you know someone who fits the bill, then Arguing with Idiots will help you silence them once and for all with the ultimate weapon: the truth.
Break it Down
This book has the truth and facts about many "points" or "arguements" that the left has. And the citations make it easy to double check his research. Glenn Beck attacks both parties, and exposes flaws on both sides. Thank GOD we have people trying to get this country back on track by quoting our founders and the Constitution.
This isn't about Glenn Beck or the (R) and (D)...this is about FREEDOM...
I am absoultly convinced that anyone who reads this book with an open mind and seriously researches the information they will be convinced of it's truthfulness. I want to thank Glenn Beck for his devotion and love for this country and our Founding Fathers. I am greatful for the time he and his staff spend to find answers to the questions so many of us have. But this is not about Glenn Beck...really...this is about OUR COUNTRY....YOURS and MINE....Let me ask the critics a question...Where would we be as a country if capitolism didn't exsist? Is "spreading the wealth" just another way of saying that we are just too lazy to work or lack the creativity and the innovation to make more money? Have you read the "5000 Year Leap"? What do you think of our Constitution? Do you believe in true freedom or government control? Why? I ask you dear friends...please read [listen to] this book and ask yourself if it make sense...it does to me. The most important thing you can do is KNOW for yourself. For we hold these truths are self-evident...pray for our country...pray for our troops...pray for our leaders even though we may not agree on everything...GOD BLESS AMERICA...
The Truth Shall Set You Free!!
This book was WONDERFUL!! Really a wonderful balance of humor and scary facts!!! People need to face the truth and stop worrying about whether you are an "elephant" or a "donkey"......If you listen....REALLY LISTEN, you will see that what is presented is a very fair and very clear look at our capatalist history and will leave you begging to reverse the curse happening today......Government is NOT healthy for out country. Government IS too intrusive in our lives. Government NEEDS to be put back into it's place. Thank You Glenn, for the many reasons I choose to remain focused and factual!! Of course the kermit the frog voice could go and I'd be ok with that..... :)
