Secret #1: Experiment On Your Children

Please, Mom, I want some more.Title: “Living Well, Spending Less: 12 Secrets of the Good Life”

Author: Ruth Soukup

Rank: 80

Blurb: “Through personal stories, biblical truth, and practical action plans, she will inspire you to make real and lasting changes to your personal goals, home, and finances.”

Excerpt: “Not until I observed firsthand the real and immediate changes in my kids after getting rid of their toys did I truly begin to understand.”

Review: “The title of this book should be: ‘Long-winded stories about the mistakes I made in my quest for a designer lifestyle.’ I can’t relate to the author’s life at all. She has some social anxiety issues that had her moving her family to new cities frequently, and then the kicker was when she said her husband became a stay-at-home dad so she could BLOG. DO WHAT? And I am to take FINANCIAL advice from this woman?”

Damn, Miss Marple is gone. And she was  in Branagh’s Henry V. She was the best.

Roughly translated from the Arabic, it is “#Michelle_Obama_unveiled”

That’s right, bitches. Shelley Oh, unlike most foreign women, went to Saudi Arabia and did not wear a veil. And many of the male leaders of the country refused to shake her hand.

I can’t wait for the cognitive dissonance and head explosions of Faux Nooz announcers: “She’s so disrespectful….ergh…but it was to the Mooslems…but it was the Mooslems with the oil….BOOM!”

Pretty Grandma-looking for Shelley Oh

Bow down, bitches.

I make the pussy purr with the stroke of my hand.Title: “God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy”

Author: Mike Huckabee

Rank: 74

Blurb: “Mike Huckabee asks, ‘Have I been taken to a different planet than the one on which I grew up?'”

Review: “As far as Mike Huckabee is concerned this certainly isn’t the America that he grew up in. Common sense seems to be gone with the wind. Standards of decency, patriotism, religious freedom, the Second Amendment and respect for the other person’s point of view have all come under increasing attack by progressives in what he refers to as ‘Bubble-ville’ (New York, Los Angeles and Washington, DC). Why if you dare to give your child a well-deserved spanking then you might be labelled as some sort of Neanderthal. Parents are not supposed to have rules, expectations, consequences or a paddle.”

Footnote: We’re just four years younger than Nugent’s bass player, and this isn’t the America we grew up in, either. The America we grew up in was enduring a winless decade-long war, civil-rights struggles, attempts to restrict voting, resistance to healthcare expansion, venal Republican Presidential candidates—

Oh, wait.

Data With Destiny.Title: “The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business”

Author: Charles Duhigg

Rank: 74

Blurb: “Distilling vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives that take us from the boardrooms of Procter & Gamble to sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights movement, Duhigg presents a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential.”

Seemingly Benign Author Quote: “Target studies our habits to see if they can predict major life events. And the company is very, very successful. Oftentimes, they know what is going on in someone’s life better than that person’s parents.”
