10. 365 Manners Kids Should Know by Sheryl Eberly
Why do today's children have such appallingly bad manners? One reason is that, for at least a generation, manners training in the home has been neglected; indeed, many parents have forgotten some basic rules of etiquette themselves. Now, Sheryl Eberly, a former White House aide to Nancy Reagan, gives parents an accessible plan for teaching (and learning!) good manners that begins in the home and covers every social situation and etiquette opportunity children will encounter. Far more than a simple rule book, "365 Manners Kids Should Know" provides anecdotes, advice, and activities for turning rules into habits.
9. "Is It True What They Say About Ann?" DVD by Elinor Burkett and Patrick Wright
Go behind the scenes with Ann Coulter, and meet the woman behind the stinging barb and the quick wit. In the documentary "Is It True What They Say About Ann?" you'll see the "conservative movement's diva" at her best. The most controversial political commentator of our day, Ann Coulter is the author of the bestselling "Godless," "Slander," "Treason," and "How to Talk to a Liberal." And finally, heres a documentary that spotlights this fascinating woman. Anns legions of fans wont want to miss this DVD full of exclusive interviews, classic television clips, and Coulter insight.
8. Godless by Ann Coulter
In past #1 bestsellers, Ann Coulter has revealed how liberals lie about their conservative opponents (Slander). She's shown how the Left routinely stands with America's enemies against America herself (Treason). She's even defended liberalism's ultimate bogeyman: Joe McCarthy. But now, Coulter ups the ante once again. In Godless: The Church of Liberalism, she shows how liberal hostility to traditional religion stems from the fact that liberalism is itself a religion -- a godless one. And, she reveals, thanks to the liberals who dominate our courts, our government bureaucracies, our schools, and our media, liberalism is now the established religion of our country.
7. The Gold Rose on Silver Pendant
Dazzle the precious women in your life with a gift made of precious metal. The Gold Rose on Silver Pendant is layered in pure, 24-karat gold. The Rose rests on a background of pure silver, and the contrast in precious metals is spectacular. This gold and silver medallion is placed in a sterling silver teardrop bezel, which hangs from a matching 18-inch sterling sliver chain. With todays jewelry, it is rare to find pendants, rings and necklaces made from pure gold and silver -- most jewelers prefer sterling silver and 14- or 18- karat gold. For example, 14-karat gold means that the jeweler is using 14 parts of gold and 10 parts of other metals-copper, nickel, zinc, etc.... Jewelers avoid pure silver and gold because they complain theyre too soft and too expensive!
6. Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters by Dr. Meg Meeker
Thats right -- and teen health expert Dr. Meg Meeker has the data and clinical experience to prove it. After more than twenty years of counseling girls, she knows that fathers, more than anyone else, set the course for their daughters lives. Now, she shows you how to strengthen -- or rebuild -- your bond with your daughter, and use it to shape her life, and yours, for the better. Directly challenging the feminist attack on traditional masculinity, Dr. Meeker demonstrates that the most important factor for confident, well-adjusted women is a strong father with conservative values. To have one, she shows, is the best protection against eating disorders, failure in school, STDs, unwed pregnancy, and drug or alcohol abuse -- and the best predictor of academic achievement, successful marriage, and a satisfying emotional life.
5. "The Case for a Creator" DVD by Lee Strobel
Based upon Lee Strobels New York Times bestselling book, the new DVD The Case for a Creator is a remarkable documentary about Strobels personal journey from atheism to faith in God. This compelling DVD presents Strobel's search for the truth about intelligent design in the universe. During his academic years, Strobel became convinced that God was outmoded, a belief that colored his ensuing career as an award-winning journalist at the Chicago Tribune. Science made the idea of a Creator irrelevant or so Strobel thought. Then, in 1980, his wifes conversion to Christianity led him on an intensive search for the truth about God. Not surprisingly, he began with science.
4. Culture Warrior by Bill O'Reilly
With three straight #1 bestsellers and the highest-rated talk show on cable TV, Bill O'Reilly is one of our nation's most formidable battlers in the culture war -- and that's the subject of his latest book, Culture Warrior. In it, this unrelenting fighter for the soul of America marshals all of his celebrated firepower for the defense of traditional values against those who want to transform America into a secular-progressive country. The culture war, O'Reilly explains, differs in many ways from the usual liberal/conservative divide, but it is no less heated -- and the stakes are even higher for those who love the values on which our nation is founded.
3. The Official 2006 White House Christmas Ornament
The "Official 2006 White House Christmas Ornament" honors the administration of the 21st President of the United States Chester A. Arthur (188185). Having served just six months as vice president to James A. Garfield, Arthur assumed the presidency in September 1881 when Garfield succumbed to the wounds inflicted by an assassin's bullet. He brought to the White House a luxurious style that signaled the nation's return to prosperity after the economic troubles of the late 1870s. The design of the "Official 2006 White House Christmas Ornament" is inspired by the period motifs and rich decor of Arthur's White House, which will be forever distinguished by the early work of famed American artist and decorator Louis Comfort Tiffany.
2. America Alone by Mark Steyn
Are you ready for a conflict between America and the rest of the world? In "America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It," Mark Steyn (the most widely read and wittiest columnist in the world today) argues that thats just whats coming. European and Islamic anti-Americanism, he explains, threatens to leave us isolated in the world: the global situation is rapidly reaching a point at which America will have to confront the enemies of civilization without help from anyone else. And when the world is divided between America and the rest, all those who dont want to see the world shrouded in a new Dark Ages should hope that America wins.
1. Conservative Comebacks to Liberal Lies by Gregg Jackson
It happens to all of us: were debating some liberal friend or colleague when he makes an unsupported claim were just positive is false but we dont have the hard facts to prove it. Or were confronted with slick arguments for, say, legalizing gay marriage, but arent quite ready with the strongest counter-arguments. Now theres help. In "Conservative Comebacks to Liberal Lies," Boston talk-radio host Gregg Jackson provides tightly argued, fully documented responses to no fewer than 241 of the most common claims made by the Left on all the most important political, social, and cultural issues of our day.
Here are a few of my favorite gifts for conservatives (posted below)...
#1: A political party that listens to you and represents your views in Washington.
Santa better remember my .338 Lapua.
Bingo.................... but don't hold your breath.
Instead choose: Anything by Sowell, but particularly 'Civil Rights' and 'Basic Economic.' 'The Marriage Problem' by James Wilson gives all the research on the breakdown of marriage and poverty. 'Reason for the Hope Within' by Alvin Plantinga is a better Christian apologetic than Strobel. 'Cowboy Capitalism' is a great indictment if the European economy.
What about Age of Imperialism or Settlers of Cataan?
LOL....I might have to order one of those cookbooks!
DVD "What the West needs to know"
Honest to God, can you people not go ONE THREAD without bitching?
"Who Really Cares?" by Arthur C. Brooks:
Gibbons "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire," the best history written in English.
That's a good list! I have several of those books already.
