6 Stars – Righteous Common Sense, From the Heart, Speaking to All of Us – Including Generation Z and All Women of All Ages Ready to Lead America Forward
This four page summary review includes links that add to the Kindle experience.
Tomi Lahren is a cross-over talent, an independent critical thinker with both sass and grace. She is totally in step with First Lady Melania Trump on “be best” and she is, in contrast to the other authors that are erudite on one end and pundishly legalistic on the other, the common sense middle ground.
As I read through this book, not only did it speak to me for my three sons, the third of whom is easily in Generation Z, but I could not help but feel that Tomi Lahren is the equivalent of “the Pope’s divisions” in reaching women across America who are repressed on both the left and the right – male assholeness (in this book Glenn Beck features throughout as the archtype) is non-partisan. If ever there was a time to denounce parties, elevate people, and put women instead of men in charge, this is that time.
I almost broke a pen on this book with underlinings and notes throughout, notes that include class act, authentic and brilliant, strong message to young people on working hard and doing it right, and a superb criticism of “lawn parents’ (I regret to say I am in that group) who clear away obstacles for the children and hamper their learning harder lessons in so doing.
I have a long note to the effect that this book is a study in character – the character of the author and the character of the Republic – and I note with special interest that she demolishes the fake posturing feminist movement that is an infantile fake virtue signaling conglomeration of worthless shits, rather than righteous women with the right stuff. Virtue signaling bullshit is not unique to women – witness Colin Kaepernick killing the Nike shoe with the Betsy Ross flag – he is not the asshole, Nike “leaders” are the assholes. I am sick of all the crap that has been normalized – including pedophilia – by the posturing progressive left.
I have a note, this woman (Tomi Lahren) – this voice (Tomi Lahren) is the embodiment of frontier authenticity – live free or die, work hard or die, stand tall or die. If President Donald Trump does not see her at the “real woman” and bully pulpit voice that he needs to make his case for 2020, we are all lost. Tomi Lahren is our All-American Annie Oakley. She is a most wonderful complement to the First Lady and First Daughter.
My most important note in terms of her role and value: she speaks for the voiceless, not just law enforcement, but blue collar workers, farmers and ranchers, waitresses, single moms – I am somehow reminded of Barbara Ehrenriech’s Nickled and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America, or John Bowe’s Nobodies–Modern American Slave Labor and the Dark Side of the New Global Economy. Let’s throw in Vaclav Havel’s The Power of the Powerless–Citizens Against the State in Central-Eastern Europe. Tomi Lahren is, as we used to say in Viet-Nam back in the day, 99 lbs of romping stomping Airborne hell, God help you if you stand in her way. Aroogah!
