I got a book in the mail yesterday. Check it out. A lot of great information. The Political Junkie Handbook covers the A to Z of politics from both sides of every issue. I’m finding myself laughing at some of the information and doing the old Johnny Carson, “I did not know that” line in my head with other stuff.
Towards the back of the book there are several lists that are most definately amusing. One list defines the difference between the left and the right. One of the differences that made me laugh was the left says “stop global warming” and the right says “stop global whining”. When you think about it, that kind of says it all. Another is the left says 2+2=whatever, the right says 2+2=4. Goes along the lines of how the left views grading systems in schools. Another is group rights, individual rights. Simple easy ways to see the differences on stances. How about humanity and individuality or mass transit and automobile.
There’s a list of 250 reasons conservatives hated Clinton and another 250 why liberals hated Reagan.
I found a list of quotes and I think the best one was a Churchill quote, “History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.” And there are a bunch more quotes from all through history all through the book.
I would say Michael Crane has done an excellent job compiling a lot of useful data. Definately a good read.
