  • Yes! And he is ABSOLUTELY correct! We are so "micromanaged" these days people have difficulty making a simple decision without consulting a half dozen people first! I think those hardest hit are those under the age of 30! SOME of them have done well and use good common sense--but that is a credit to the parents who raised them.

  • There is nothing common about sense anymore. Glenn Beck talking about common sense is like a politician talking about honesty

  • First Glenn Beck is NOT a Republican. Second, I would just have thought you would be more objective to all views of politics before you make a judgement on a book.  That's all... But your first answer pretty much summed it up. Thanks!
