This Book Is Certain To Stir Conversation at the Dinner Table

  • Feb 15, 2012
From the red, white and blue cover along with the overalls, Bible and gun, award-winning journalist Todd Starnes makes a clear statement of his conservative perspective. Get ready for an insider's glimpse at the current state of America in DISPATCHES FROM BITTER AMERICA.

I found the stories engaging and fascinating---yet carefully researched and documented (the final pages of end notes show the detailed research. In the introduction, Starnes gives this background as he sits in the Red Arrow Diner, "As I sipped on a cup of coffee, I was reminded of the lyrics from that great lee Greenwood song, "I'm Proud to Be an American."…And that's how I came up with the idea for this book. It's a collection of stories from my travels across this country—conversations I've had with regular folks who have deep concerns about the direction we are going as a nation." (Page 9)

The well-told stories are organized into sections: Dispatches from DC, Dispatches from the Fly-over States, Dispatches from the Schoolhouse and Dispatches from the Pew.  Get this book and absorb every story. You can't help to be educated and entertained through DISPATCHES FROM BITTER AMERICA.

Sounds fairly interesting. I always like hearing about the perspective from people who aren't paid to scream at me from a TV screen.

The long and short of it is this aspect. There are great ideas out there in every walk of life and in every profession. The American people must be apprised of these ideas so that the society at large can benefit without reference to either political party or philosophy.
