March 17, 2014 Greg Gutfeld’s Newest Book- Not Cool Behind every awful, dangerous decision destroying America lurks one evil beast: THE COOL NOT COOL The Hipster Elite and Their War on You – Buy it Now! Now, with NOT COOL: The Hipster Elite and Their War on You (Crown Forum, March 18, 2014), Gutfeld, whose previous book The Joy of Hate spent seven weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, offers up his amusing yet piercingly true theory that America is suffering under the oppression of the liberals and self-appointed edgy tastemakers—“the Cool”—who are dangerously in control of deeming what is good and what is bad in our society at the expense of forgotten values like hard work, honesty, and fidelity to principle. From politics to the personal, from fashion to food, from the campus to the locker room, the desire to be cool has infected all aspects of our lives. At its most harmless, it is annoying. At its worst, it is deadly, on a massive scale. The Cool are the termites of life, infiltrating every nook and cranny and destroying it from within. The Cool report the news, write the scripts, teach our children, run our government—and each day they pass judgment on those who don’t worship their coolness. The Cool fawn over terrorists, mock the military, and denigrate employers. They are, in short, awful people. So what is perceived as cool in today’s world that Gutfeld argues is exactly the opposite? Just to name a few: Dependency as an acceptable lifestyle, independent of achievement. To the Cool there is no shame in letting someone else pay your way (including the government), even if you could pay it yourself. Ridiculing women, minorities, and gays who reject this culture of dependency and victimization. Don’t hate them because they value capitalism and hard work. Movements that reject American values in favor of American guilt. See Occupy Wall Street as one example, rejected by sensible Americans but coddled by the media. Evil in film as a lesson plan for a romantic, rebellious reality. Any person, organization or thing that rebels against structure is heroic, while anyone with a blackberry or briefcase is Hollywood shorthand...

Brambleman a Novel by Jonathan Grant

Brambleman a Novel by Jonathan Grant

Brambleman Examines Forsyth County’s Racist Past   A new novel by an award-winning writer and editor focuses attention on one of the most horrific acts of racism in U.S. history and its repercussions “unto the third and fourth generation.”   Brambleman tells the story of down-and-out Atlanta writer Charlie Sherman, who is convinced by a mysterious stranger to finish a dead professor’s book about a crime that’s gone unpunished for decades. What Charlie works on is an unwieldy manuscript about the mob-driven expulsion of more than 1,000 blacks from Forsyth County, Georgia in 1912. However, Charlie also uncovers a terrible secret involving a Forsyth County land grab. Due to its proximity to Atlanta, the stolen farm is now worth $20 million—and a sale is pending. When he finds the land’s rightful owner, Charlie becomes convinced he’s been chosen by a Higher Power to mete out justice and wreak vengeance on those who profit from evil. That’s when things go horribly wrong. Author Jonathan Grant says the story will probably be controversial. “Many people don’t want to be reminded about Forsyth County’s past—especially because, to many people, that past has become the county’s defining characteristic—what made it what it is today.” “The way I tell the story will ruffle even more feathers,” Grant admits.“Brambleman isn’t a dry, documentary treatment of historical events. It’s definitely not preachy. It’s wildly funny, with a heavy supernatural twist and a protagonist who often resorts to very non-heroic tactics and, along the way, doubts his sanity, motives, and who he’s actually working for.”   The novel is an outgrowth of Grant’s work on his late father Donald L. Grant’s magnum opus, The Way It Was in the South: The Black Experience in Georgia (University of Georgia Press), named Georgia’s “Book of the Year.” when it was published. “The last narrative my father wrote was on Hosea Williams’s two Forsyth County marches in 1987,” Grant says. “While I worked on the book, I became painfully aware that Forsyth Countynever received its proper due from historians. I wanted to give it the attention it deserved. Two decades later, Brambleman is here.”   Author Bio: Jonathan Grant grew up on a Missouri farm and graduated from theUniversity of Georgia. The former journalist and state government spokesman lives inAtlanta with his wife and two children. He is the author of Chain Gang Elementary and co-author/editor of The Way...

The Single Girl’s Survival Guide Secrets for Today’s Savvy, Sexy, and Independent Woman By Imogen Lloyd Webber Carrie Bradshaw may have written her last column, but strong, beautiful, single girls everywhere continue to work, play, and sometimes freak out about their unattached status. That’s where Imogen Lloyd Webber comes in. You may recognize her as the feisty blond commentator with a liberal slant on Fox News, appearing regularly on The O’Reilly Factor, Hannity, Red Eye, and Your World With Neil Cavuto, but Imogen is also a proud 30-something spokeswoman for SGs (single girls) everywhere.   The Single Girl’s Survival Guide is a funny, smart and sassy guide to work, mind, body, home, friends, socializing, and of course, dating and sex. Creating her own shorthand for discussing relationships (S&MBF = Straight and Male Best Friend and PMDL boys = Promise Much Delivers Little), Imogen goes over the ins-and-outs of all of the exciting, empowering, and sometimes confusing aspects of single life including: The “Girl’s Code” – what you absolutely can NOT do to your girlfriends The values and shortcomings of Platonic Boyfriends and S&MBF’s “Wingman” Selection – wingmen aren’t just for guys! “Boys have one night stands, girls have Accidental Sex” – how to deal with the double standard And much, much more!   While dating is discussed at length inside, “this book is not about how to find a man,” Imogen writes. “It’s about how to steer safe passage through the stormy waters of the single girl’s world, limit the seasickness, and even enjoy the trip!”   The book is divided into practical sections including: Work Management. Every SG needs a reason to get out of bed…. and disposable income for shoes Mind Over Matter Management. From medicine to manicures, this is your moment to focus on YOU Home Management. The way you live is your call. And then there is to roommate or not, that is the question Family Management. It’s important to listen to your parents, but equally crucial to recognize that as an adult, you no longer have to accept everything they say Friend Management. Don’t confuse Genuine Girlfriends with Girl Playmates… and find a Gay Best Friend (GBF) – he...
