My Birthday Present to Myself.

As I write this, it is 11:25 AM on Thursday. I'm listening to Neal Boortz interview Mark Levin about Levin's latest book, Liberty and Tyranny.
I ordered the book back on March, 24 - along with Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning by Jonah Goldberg.
I bought the two books as a birthday present to myself. I wasn't expecting the books to arrive until April least that's what told me. (my birthday falls on Easter, this year).

Not sure which book to start reading first.

It's a shame the books didn't arrive last week - when I was laid off from work. I would have had lots of time to read them. The work schedule has changed this week. I think I'll be working this Friday (which is a big change for us) and there's even a rumor we'll have to work Good Friday. I'll take a vacation day if that's the case.

When I post this, I'll know whether or not I'll be working Friday......(it'll be Friday when I post this).
I'll let you know which book I picked up first.

As it turned out, I decided to read Goldberg's book first. It's been on my wish list for ages.
I haven't gotten too far into it, so I can't possibly write a review, but, I can say that it's living up to my expectations.

Goldberg admits that fascism is one of those words that is used more often than understood. A thorough definition of the word has alluded historians. Goldberg's view is that fascism is, simply put, a secular religion. I agree.

That goes a long way to explaining the Left's obsession with the destruction of Christianity.
Don't get me started on global warming, animal rights and Obama.
