End Of Discussion Book Review

This book comes with a lot of "drama". There are very conflicting ideals that people will read about because lets face it, we all have our own opinions. When it comes to politics, we are no different. I think, in fact, politics make it worse. 

There are a lot of "labels" out there and it just has become more so in society today. I think that this book demonstrates everything you want to hear IF you agree with it. If, however, you're on the other side than you won't enjoy it at all. This is one of those books that sees something from one angle, there isn't much open to interpretation. It's a political book with a lot of points, if you're open to reading them.

"In this fresh and provocative new book, Mary Katharine Ham and Guy Benson, dynamic Fox News and Townhall Media duo, expose how the Left exploits fake outrage to silence their political opponents—in public, on social media, at work, and even in their own homes. You’ve felt it and “End of Discussion” can help you fight it.

The political correctness born on college campuses has mutated into a new hypersensitivity. It’s weaponized in Washington, D.C. by a network of well-trained operatives, media, and politicians, and proliferated throughout the country. The new Puritans of the Left are quick to ban comedians and commencement speakers alike for the sin of disagreeing with them. They demand “safe spaces” while making dissent increasingly dangerous for Americans.

Ham and Benson demonstrate just how dangerous the outrage industry—a coalition of mostly liberal blowhards and busybodies—is to America. The media frenzy they create is designed to disqualify opposing viewpoints on everything from health care to education by labeling them racist, sexist, and evil. They punish speech that makes them uncomfortable, demanding boycotts, censures, and people’s jobs. They seek to win political and cultural debates by preventing them from happening. 

And if you think this behavior is relegated to political fights or politicians, think again. The same activists are ready to foment outrage over your association with the “wrong” fried chicken joints, Internet browsers, breast cancer charities, pasta, children’s toys, Halloween costumes, TV shows, schools, and even comedians’ jokes. 

With Ham and Benson’s help, readers can cut through the noise and find their voices again, fighting back against the rampant self-censorship and hair-trigger apologies that always make things worse, not better. With fresh reporting and insightful, occasionally tongue-in-cheek analysis, End of Discussion is a timely handbook for anyone who wants to make sure debate doesn’t meet an ugly death."

Sadie's Loving Her Wild Frontier Dog Food!

Sadie had the opportunity to try the Nutro Wild Frontier dry food and was given the Rolling Meadows Recipe with Lamb.

It's a grain free dog food that offers plenty of nutrients and is packed with protein for your dog. It provides a healthy essential diet and offers a great taste. Sadie loved it! I love that there is nothing artificial in it so I can be sure I'm giving her something that is good for her.

I would recommend this dog food to anybody who loves their dog and wants to feed them something that is good for them.

Braving It Book Review

Image result

Braving It is a book about a father and daughter journeying through Alaska! What fun, and at times, grueling! It really digs deep and delves into the Alaskan wilderness and also shows the relationship between the father and daughter in the book.

Making memories, these duo of family braved the terrain and made memories like nobodies business! I enjoyed reading this book and was curious as the adventures began. This book offers an inside look at the Alaskan frontier braving it on your own and lets you live through them if you have no desire to actually do it! I would recommend it to anybody who likes an adventurous read, especially in this hot summer heat! Enjoy!

Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, home to only a handful of people, is a harsh and lonely place. So when James Campbell’s cousin Heimo Korth asked him to spend a summer building a cabin in the rugged Interior, Campbell hesitated about inviting his fifteen-year-old daughter, Aidan, to join him: Would she be able to withstand clouds of mosquitoes, the threat of grizzlies, bathing in an ice-cold river, and hours of grueling labor peeling and hauling logs? 

But once there, Aidan embraced the wild. She even agreed to return a few months later to help the Korths work their traplines and hunt for caribou and moose. Despite windchills of 50 degrees below zero, father and daughter ventured out daily to track, hunt, and trap. Under the supervision of Edna, Heimo’s Yupik Eskimo wife, Aidan grew more confident in the woods. 

Campbell knew that in traditional Eskimo cultures, some daughters earned a rite of passage usually reserved for young men. So he decided to take Aidan back to Alaska one final time before she left home. It would be their third and most ambitious trip, backpacking over Alaska’s Brooks Range to the headwaters of the mighty Hulahula River, where they would assemble a folding canoe and paddle to the Arctic Ocean. The journey would test them, and their relationship, in one of the planet’s most remote places: a land of wolves, musk oxen, Dall sheep, golden eagles, and polar bears.

At turns poignant and humorous, Braving It is an ode to America’s disappearing wilderness and a profound meditation on what it means for a child to grow up—and a parent to finally, fully let go.
