Last week, the Republicans nominated Mit(ten) O’ Romney and his side-kick, Paul (no abortion for YOU!) Ryan. Last night, the Democrats simply kicked ass (Michele, what gorgeous arms you have!).
But no matter which side of the fight you’re on, you can bet–whatever you have left of the farm–that the other side believes Everything You Know is Wrong.
Everything You Know is Wrong by Lloyd Pye
Although this book is about the “origin of life”, the title pretty much sums up the spirit on both sides of the political aisle.
According to the description, Everything You Know Is Wrong stakes out a solid, defendable, entirely new position in the debate about life origins and human origins. That position is bolstered by an astonishing array of scientific facts either unmentioned or conspicuously ignored by the two currently entrenched camps.”
“Scientific facts”? “Conspicuously ignored”? Yup…that sounds about right.
Path to a Better World by James S. Albus
Path to a Better World asks, “Is it really possible to live in a world without deprivation or economic strife, but instead with peace, prosperity, and better opportunities?” We say if TLC’s new show ‘Honey Boo Boo’ could beat last week’s Republican National Convention in the ratings then anything is possible.
Author James Albus, an engineer, neuroscientist, and international expert in robotics and intelligent systems, begins “by sharing his vision of an ideal world and contrasts that with the current reality” and proposes a “practical plan that provides the means to make this dream a reality—and all before the end of the twenty-first century.”
Someone get this guy a Super PAC.
Comprehending the Climate Crisis by Bradley J. Dibble, MD
Washington Post columnist George Will blamed this past year’s historic heat wave on one word: Summer. Perhaps because, as Comprehending the Climate Crisis explains, “Global warming and climate are complex environmental issues…”
Written for the layperson (with a brain), Climate Crisis “discusses the background science, the problem of global warming, and the solutions available to us all. With education as its focus, the book “arms the public with information to use as a stepping-stone to help save the planet from ourselves and for our future.”
Now if only the public could agree that the climate crisis actually existed, we might actually have a snowball’s chance in Texas to do something about it.
Moses Was A Right-Wing Conservative by John L Plough
In Moses Was a Right-Wing Conservative, John Plough points out that “Few characters in history have had such a profound effect on the modern world as Moses” (but not as many People magazine covers as Kim Kardashian).
The book notes that, “In popular film Moses has been portrayed by Mel Brooks, Charlton Heston, and recently Val Kilmer. The world’s three major religions all claim him as a prophet and a founding father of their beliefs.” So far so good.
Plough goes on to say that , “Recently the line dividing the conservative from the liberal has become a little fuzzy.” A little fuzzy? That’s like calling the idea of “legitimate rape” a little crazy. But Plough believes that, “It is time we as a nation look to a great conservative leader of the past for guidance”. And based on the list of actors mentioned above, we don’t think he means Ronald Regan.
When I Am Older, I Will Pray More by Roy K. Bohrer
When I Am Older, I Will Pray More, “shares prayers for seniors suitable for every life situation.
“If you prefer to create your own prayers, When I Am Older, I Will Pray More provides a five-point prayer form that you can memorize to help you when saying prayers aloud.
“These prayers can be used exactly as they are written in your devotional life, or as examples of how to regularly talk with the Lord about subjects ranging from everyday troubles to sick friends to preparation for upcoming life changes.”
One wonders what the prayer might be for, “Holy Shit, Sadie, the Republicans are taking my freakin’ Medicare!”
