Must read book. – Grimmy

Filed under: Book Review,Guest Comment — grimgold @ 8:34 am

I just finished this excellent book. Here’s page 5, as an example:

“Ask the American people if they want a moment of silence for children to pray if they desire in public school, and 94 percent say yes.
Ask the American people if they support making English the official language of the United States, and 87 percent say yes.
Ask the American people if al Qaeda poses a serious threat to our
country, and 93 percent say yes.
Ask the American people if they believe it is possible to negotiate with terrorist groups like al Qaeda, and 79 percent say no.
Ask the American people if the Social Security system is broken, and 80 percent say yes.
Ask the American people if it is important for the president and Congress to address the Social Security mess within the next few years, and 96 percent say yes.
Ask the American people if they support the option of a single income tax rate of 17 percent for everyone, with standard exemptions for each adult, married couple, and child dependent, and 71 percent say yes.
Ask the American people if they support drilling for oil off America’s coasts to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and 73 percent say yes.
Ask the American people if they support building more nuclear power plants to cut carbon emissions and reduce our dependency on foreign oil, and 65 percent say yes.”

There is more just like this on page 38. This book Real Change, by Newt Gingrich, is a quick read. Please grab a copy and thumb through it, at the very least.


  1. Grimmy,

    Would that be the same Newt Gingrich who told his first wife , who he was already cheating on, that he wanted a divorce while she was recovering from surgery for ovarian cancer?

    The same Newt Gingrich who called for Bill Clinton’s impeachment while he was screwing around on wife #2 with a staff member?

    The same Newt Gingrich who was forced to resign from the House in shame?

    That Newt Gingrich?

  2. In other countries Newt would have been lined up against a wall and shot for his failed coup. In the US he become a rich pundit.

  3. Grim, where did these stats come from? I’ve read similar polls over the years, and they never had these kinds of figures. Did Newtie just pull them out fo his pants?

    Aside from that, slavery was very popular in parts of this country at one time — did that make it right?

    One other thing, school children currently have the right to silent prayer in the classroom, and many of them exercise this right to ask for higher grades, more sex or better quality drugs — they just don’t have the right to voice the prayer outloud, nor to force other students to pray with them.

  4. Volt, that would be the same Newt.

    Hawk, his coup was a success. Remember?

    RS, your comments are the most intelligent, as usual. I’m pointing out what he said. I find it interesting. Concerning the accuracy, he refers to a group he started that collected the stats. Since you people hate him so much, why don’t you go look and see if you can discredit his stats?
    If Newt had been a democrat, would his cheating on his wife even been noticed? Don’t get me wrong – I find it wrong enough that I’m glad he didn’t run for president. Mac is bad enough. God help us all.

  5. If Newt had not been leading the charge to impeach Clinton over lying about sex, then it would never have been noticed that he was cheating on his wife. We weren’t the ones who made fidelity into a political issue. Never forget that.
