Sunday misc. odds and ends

The blogosphere is a bit quiet this weekend, presumably due to the upcoming 4th of July holiday. I know several people who have bailed out of town for the next few days, and are already enjoying their time off and preparing to celebrate our Independence Day. My long weekend starts after the 4th, as I’ll be taking off work Weds, Thurs, and Fri. I’m not going out of town, just taking a breather from the 8-5.

Wanted to pass along couple of book recommendations to you:

  • Patrick Hynes of Ankle Biting Pundits has a book coming out on the 4th titled “In Defense of the Religious Right“. I’m in the middle of reading it now, and I encourage you to pick up a copy as well. The Religious Right is probably the most maligned voting block in the country – Patrick takes an in depth look at who the Religious Right are, examines the numerous misconceptions about the Religious Right, debunks the more outrageous claims about the Religious Right, and explains how they are different from the more organized Christian groups of the past such as the Moral Majority and Christian Coaltion. If you are fed up of being put down as a member of the Religious Right, this book will give you the ammunition you need to refute the lies coming from the left and the MSM regarding religious Christians.
  • Getting America Right” – written by Edwin J. Feulner (Heritage Foundation president) and Doug Wilson (Chairman of the and published on March 7, “Getting America Right” takes a look at how conservatives in government have gone off course, straying from the conservative domestic agenda that Republicans elected them to represent. It provides solutions for elected conservatives to get back on track, and encourages their supporters to hold them accountable in order to push forth the conservative agenda we hoped would take hold under a Republican Congress and administration. Want to feel empowered as a conservative again? Read this book. I just finished last week, and *really* enjoyed it.
  • The official launch of Wide Awakes Radio is July 4th. What is W.A.R.? Find out here. Hint: if you like conservative bloggers, you’ll love it :) Check out their schedule here. Exciting stuff!

    Ever hear of Inflammatory Breast Cancer? No? Me neither, until I watched this video. I received this from a friend of mine who is a breast cancer survivor and wanted to pass it along. A surprising number of women (including three of four leading breast cancer research-promoting groups) had not heard of it. If you’re like me, and had never heard of it, please watch the short video so you can know what it is and visit your doctor if you think you may have it.

    I’ve added a PayPal donation button as well as a link to my tip jar on the left hand side of this page, under the BlogAds section. I’ve blogged for nearly three years without a tip jar, but bit the bullet this weekend and decided to put them on the site. Any contributions will be much appreciated. The buttons will be there permanently. By *no means* should anyone feel obligated – I know support comes in many forms, and sincerely appreciate them all. But having a little extra change helps pay for the cost of running and maintaining the site. By the same token, if you or someone you know would like to advertise on this site, click here.

    I will be guest blogging tomorrow at Right Wing News along with a fine cast of conservative bloggers I’m honored to be blogging with. I’ll note here when I have a new post up there. BTW, if you haven’t already bookmarked RWN, why not do so now? It’s a great blog written by a proud, very articulate fellow North Carolinia conservative.
