Prude is an in-depth look at the forces telling young women that being sexy trumps intelligence and character every time.

For parents who want their daughters to understand the physical, emotional and psychological dangers of giving too much, too soon, it puts all the facts at their fingertips. And for anyone who cares about the impact that teen sexuality has on

Show 141 P.J. ORourke on the – On the Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith. Learn the bedrock principles of free-market economics while you laugh. You read that right. And only P.J. O’Rourke could make it possible On The Wealth of Nations
Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations might well be the most influential work of economics ever written, but it’s never been considered a laugh-riot. That could change, however, with this explication of Smith’s free-market masterpiece by conservative commentator and humorist P.J. O’Rourke. In On The Wealth of Nations, O’Rourke manages to accomplish a fourfold task that no one would have thought possible: (1) to explain all of Smith’s ideas - from the simple to the complex - clearly and concisely; (2) to show how those principles can help us understand - and solve - today’s economic social problems; (3) to use Smith’s evergreen wisdom as the jumping-off point for O’Rourke’s own biting social commentary; and (4) to keep you in stitches from beginning to end.

Show 139 Dennis talks to Bjorn Lomborg, adjunct professor at the
Former vice president Al Gore … excuse us, Oscar-winning documentarian, Nobel laureate, and shamelessly hypocritical mansion-dwelling, jet-setting energy pig Al Gore … says global warming is nothing short of a "planetary emergency" demanding elaborate and expensive actions that will cost hundreds of billions of dollars. But is the hysteria surrounding global warming rational? And would the solutions he has in mind make things better for mankind -- or worse? Now, in Cool It: The Skeptical Environmentalists Guide to Global Warming, noted environmental expert Bjorn Lomborg draws on extensive studies and analysis -- including the UN's most recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Report -- to debunk numerous popular myths that are causing people to panic (and Al Gore to win prizes).
Lomborg -- previously the author of the bestselling The Skeptical Environmentalist, and named one of Time magazines 100 most influential people in 2004 -- does believe that global warming is occurring, but not to the degree, or at the pace, that alarmists like Al Gore would have us believe. Nor are the consequences all bad -- in fact, some are, and will be, very good, not only for our species but for others. The key, he believes, is to assess the facts and approach whatever problems need to be addressed in a rational way -- which means not wasting all our energy and resources on Chicken Little hysteria when there are more pressing problems facing the world.
Cool It gives you the facts and documentation behind hundreds of "politically incorrect" revelations like these:
Sea levels will rise about one foot over the next century, according to the UNs 2007 IPCC report -- the same rise that has occurred worldwide since 1860. A 20-foot rise, such as the one seen in An Inconvenient Truth, is hypothetical at best
Global polar bear populations, contrary to environmentalists claims, are generally stable, and two populations around the
The recent increase in impact from hurricanes and storms has nothing to do with global warming and everything to do with the rising concentrations of population and infrastructure in coastal areas. The data available today does not support unequivocal claims that global warming is worsening storms
Though such global warming as may actually occur will mean more heat-related deaths -- about 40,000 more in the United States in 2050 -- there will also be 200,000 fewer cold deaths by then in the US.
The Kyoto Protocol is both impossibly ambitious and environmentally inconsequential. It would cost $180 billion a year for the rest of the century but would only postpone global warming by five years in 2100.

Show 137 If Democrats Had Any Brains, Theyd Be Republicans by Ann Coulter audio excerpt . Audio MP3. Yes it’s an offensive title but there is a story behind it. Give it a try. It is full of her funniest lines.
-Uttering lines that send liberals into paroxysms of rage, otherwise known as ‘citing facts,’ is the spice of life. When I see the hot spittle flying from their mouths and the veins bulging and pulsing above their eyes, well, that’s when I feel truly alive.-
So begins If Democrats Had Any Brains, Theyd Be Republicans, Ann Coulters funniest, most devastating, and, yes, most outrageous book to date.
Coulter has become the brightest star in the conservative firmament thanks to her razor-sharp reasoning and biting wit. Of course, practically any time she opens her mouth, liberal elites denounce Ann, insisting that -She’s gone too far!- and hopefully predicting that this time it will bring a crashing end to her career.
Now you can read all the quotes that have so outraged her enemies and so delighted her legions of fans. More than just the definitive collection of Coulterisms, If Democrats Had Any Brains, Theyd Be Republicans includes dozens of brand-new commentaries written by Coulter and hundreds of never-before-published quotations. This is Ann at her best, covering every topic from A to Z. Here you’ll read Coulter’s take on:
• Her politics: “As far as I’m concerned, I’m a middle-of-the-road moderate and the rest of you are crazy.�?
• Hillary Clinton: “Hillary wants to be the first woman president, which would also make her the first woman in a
• The environment: “God gave us the earth. We have dominion over the plants, the animals, the trees. God said, ‘Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It’s yours.’�?
• Religion: “It’s become increasingly difficult to distinguish the pronouncements of the Episcopal Church from the latest Madonna video.�?
• Global warming: “The temperature of the planet has increased about one degree Fahrenheit in the last century. So imagine a summer afternoon when it’s 63 degrees and the next thing you know it’s . . . 64 degrees. Ahhhh!!!! Run for your lives, everybody! Women and children first!�?
• Gun control: “Mass murderers apparently can’t read, since they are constantly shooting up ‘gun-free zones.’�?
• Bill Clinton: “Bill Clinton’s library is the first one to ever feature an Adults Only section.�?
• Illegal aliens: “I am the illegal alien of commentary. I will do the jokes that no one else will do.�?
If Democrats Had Any Brains, They’d Be Republicans is a must-have for anyone who loves (or loves to hate) Ann Coulter.

Show135 Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism by Robert P. Murphy. Audio book disk 1 of 5.
The anti-capitalists are still with us, and how. Robert Murphy has decided to give them an in-your-face economics education that they won’t forget — ever.
His approach comes from years of teaching undergraduates and dealing with the most common errors. He also draws from his teaching experience at the

Isnt the Fed protecting us against depressions and inflations? Precisely the opposite, he says: the Fed is causing economic instability.
In so many ways, this book is a product of the Mises Institute. Murphy learned his economics at the
This could be the most accessible and compelling introduction to free-market economics since Hazlitts Economics in One Lesson. Certainly economics has rarely been this fun! The socialists and Keynesian of the world will hate this book and make it a target of all their venom. But if they read it, they might learn something.
This book is sure to become a hot seller, and a major source of controversy on campuses. A previous book in this series landed on the New York Times bestseller list. How splendid to think that with this book, the Austrian perspective is receiving yet another boost in public life.
Some topics covered:
Why central planning has never worked and never will
How prices operate in a free market (and why socialist schemes like rent control always backfire)
How labor unions actually hurt workers more than they help them
Why increasing the minimum wage is always a bad idea
Why the free market is the best guard against racism
How capitalism will save the environment — and why socialist countries were the most polluted on earth
Raising taxes: why it is never “responsible?
Why no genuine advocate for the downtrodden could endorse the dehumanizing Welfare State
The single biggest myth underlying the publics support for government regulation of business
Antitrust suits: usually filed by firms that lose in free competition
How tariffs and other restrictions “protect? privileged workers but make other Americans poorer
The IMF and World Bank: why they dont help poor countries
Why the industrial revolution was the biggest boon for the middle class in human history
Plus: Are you a capitalist pig? Take the quiz and find out!
Breezy, witty, but always clear, precise, and elegantly reasoned, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism is a solid and entertaining guide to free market economics written from the perspective of the
