How's everybody doing?
Your friendly neighborhood Peasant has some wonderful gift ideas
for you! These gift items are geared toward the conservative bookworm
in your family or circle of friends (It may even be you!).
Here is a short list of some wonderful books written by and for "right-
minded" folks, some of them I have scanned at local bookstores and
libraries. Not only will they provide much reading pleasure but also
political and intellectual vitamins to bolster a righty in an argument
with a lefty (or lefties). Some of these books have some terrific humor
by Sarah Palin

campaign, including her problems with some of Sen. John McCain's

"Losing Mum and Pup: A Memoir"
by Christopher Buckley
Publisher: Hatchette Book Group
$24.99 hard cover
The son of William F. Buckley Jr., regarded by many as the Father of
the Conservative Movement in the United States, Christopher Buckley
gives a tragicomic account of the year in which he lost both parents.
His mother, a renown socialite, with her husband hosted many a party
featuring members of Congress, U.S. Presidents and cabinet members,
heads of state from other countries, not to mention many dignitaries and
prominent conservatives from many different backgrounds, passed away
shortly before her iconic husband Bill. Christopher Buckley shares all
what transpired with him and other members of the Buckley clan along
the way in the time of the departures of his beloved parents, whom he
affectionately addressed as "Mum and Pup". Both touching and humorous,
it is a book which resonates well with anyone who likewise has bid a final
farewell to one or both parents (as I have done).
"Arguing With Idiots - How To Stop Small Minds and Big Government"
by Glenn Beck
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
$29.99 hard cover
Packed with sharp insight, solid wisdom, and pointed humor, Glenn Beck's
latest book is a great source of information to use when arguing politics
and related things with a liberal. He crafts wonderful comebacks and
arguments geared toward stock, reflexively made points from left-leaning
opponents. Beck also gives many facts to have at the ready, backing them
up with logic and giving the sources of these facts. Informative and fun!
Also from Glenn Beck:
"Glenn Beck's Common Sense: The Case Against an Out-Of-Control
Government, Inspired by Thomas Paine"; a book which pays homage to
and bases itself on the writings of one of our country's founding fathers.
A reminder that actions do indeed have consequences.
"An Inconvenient Book: Real Solutions to the World's Biggest Problems"
which tells how Americans can work to solve the problems relating to the
enviornment, the economy, national security, and more besides. A fine
antidote to the "solutions" thrown at us by the "politically correct" and by
people with self-serving agendas.

Again, Merry Christmas & Joyful Tidings!
