Reviews: The Fight of Our Lives

William Bennett helped me re-tune to the political spectrum in his book A Century Turns, which was published in 2010.  Now that it is 2011 and Bennett gives room for my fears in the book The Fight For Our Lives.   The Obama administration has exemplified what was wrong with the tenants of 1970’s elementary education, Free To Be You and Me, it allows the Bullies ample room to dictate the rules of the playground. 

But instead of Bullies with large arms and Neanderthal Thoughts, we have a world being run by the terrorists carrying nuclear war heads under their arms, and our President and Leaders say, "Hey as long as you don't bother us too much, you are free to stay as long as you want, and keep being yourself, -- your beautiful baby (imagine a sort of Sammy Davis Jr. voice). Just make sure the doors are locked, and the water turned off before you leave." Extremist fanatics are house guests with an addiction to methamphetamine; we welcome the terrorists in only to discover our house has been trashed. 

The United States use to reign in the fight for freedom, now we have abandoned our post and let the Barbarous Destructive Theologians free reign to do as they see fit.  This is not good, not good at all.  A bully does not change because they are cuddled and loved.  Bullies change when they know there are consequences to their actions.  This book is a hopeful wake up call to the United States, hopeful in waking the United States up before it is too late.

The one area that Bennett does not do a good job of is pointing only at Islam.  Islam is a fanatical religion but there are more fanatics out there than Islam.   He needed a more balanced attack; the way it stands now it appears that he is anti-islam to the extreme; which then makes him look like a grumpy bigoted old man. 

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their [...] book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
