–> Culture of Corruption by Michelle Malkin

Inside Flap

The era of hope and change is dead….and it only took six months in office to kill it.

Never has an administration taken office with more inflated expectations of turning Washington around. Never have a media-anointed American Idol and his entourage fallen so fast and hard. In her latest investigative tour de force, New York Times bestselling author Michelle Malkin delivers a powerful, damning, and comprehensive indictment of the culture of corruption that surrounds Team Obama’s brazen tax evaders, Wall Street cronies, petty crooks, slum lords, and business-as-usual influence peddlers.

–> You’re Teaching My Child What? by Miriam Grossman

Inside Flap

If you think sex education is still about the birds and the bees, you’re wrong. And it’s not about science either. If you’re a parent with children in the public school system, you need to know what’s really going on.

In You’re Teaching My Child What? Dr. Miriam Grossman rips back the curtain on sex education today, exposing a sordid truth. Instead of teaching our children the facts of life, sex educators are lying to them, ignoring medical fact in favor of politicized, and dangerous, propaganda that could ruin your child’s life forever.

–> The Politically Incorrect Guide to The Sixties by Jonathan Leaf

Inside Flap

When you think of the 1960s, what images come to mind? Most people think of rock music and psychedelic drugs, youthful rebellion and draft dodging, long hair and protest marches. But is that really what the sixties were all about?

Absolutely not, says Jonathan Leaf. In The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Sixties, Leaf busts the biggest myth of all about that decade: that it was defined by radical politics and cultural upheaval. From popular music to college politics to fashion, he demonstrates that throughout the 1960s America remained a deeply conservative country, with disturbances and protests confined to a small minority of agitators who are now wrongly hailed in our politically correct textbooks as the dominant voice of their generation.

Mainstream America resisted the encroachments of the counterculture, Leaf shows. It was the Vietnam veterans, not the antiwar radicals, who expressed the values held throughout most of the country. What’s more, contrary to popular belief, the vaunted sexual revolution never occurred in the sixties, and rock ‘n’ roll was not king.

I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season – oh, and watching golf too).
