About "Say It Like It Is." Over the course of the past fifty years, "Political Correctness" has morphed from a social nicety to a national enforcement of stupidity. Due to political correctness, common sense has become less important in our society than the need to be hypersensitive to each and every group of minorities within our borders. Liberals have worked slowly but steadily to promote and further the asinine concept of political correctness and have been successful in implementing it. We are so sensitive these days that the mere mention of a nationality or a particular behavior has people gasping and whispering words like bigot, hateful and intolerant. As a society, we've forgotten how to speak to one another in a truthful and direct manner. As a result, we have countless "Interpretational breakdowns" or "Misunderstandings" on a personal, professional and political basis every day. These "Misunderstandings," as Liberals call them, are the result of our inability to actually convey our thoughts and intentions in a direct and non-politically correct manner. Sensitivity to the most mundane and insignificant aspects of life has turned Americans into a weak and litigious people who are neither respected nor respectable. Few people in our country actually have the inner fortitude to ignore the Liberals rules regarding speech and "Appropriate topics," and actually, "Say it like it is." I hope to point out how accustomed we've become to political correctness and how completely asinine the whole thing really is. Political correctness is the best example of what happens when Liberals work to gradually normalize and institute a concept that has had nothing but detrimental affects on our country. Where has political correctness led us? It's no longer acceptable to call the Chinese, Chinese. We can't refer to a Black man as a Black man. The word criminal should no longer be used to describe an individual who breaks the law. Pride in America is far less PC than an animosity toward it. No blame can be put on those who choose to act in an unacceptable manner. We've been trained to think of wealthy people as bad individuals and poor people as victims. Armed conflict is no longer seen as the protection of our way of life as much as it is seen as an attempt on the part of our evil leaders to conquer and occupy foreign lands. Political correctness teaches us "Tolerance" and "Diversity," and we can see where that has led us. The teaching of manners a

When Clara Delany walks into the Aces High Motorcycle Club’s hangout, she’s hit rock bottom. She’s hiding her car from the repo man, she has less than two dollars in her bank account and the only employment she can get is delivering messages for a criminal. All because of a man. Therefore, she’s sworn off them. And then she meets West “Buck” Hardy, president of the Aces High MC. Buck also meets her, and the minute he does, he makes it clear (to everyone but Clara) that they’re starting something. Since Clara doesn’t get that message, she decides to leave Buck and sort out her life in order to come back to him clean. She’s not gone but hours before life hits Clara with another blow. Which means Buck and his boys have to ride in and save the day. After that, Buck makes no bones about where they stand. But does he?

Growing up in a prairie farm family, with a very close-knit church community, Paul Vollmin is raised to believe that a Christian should be different. But somehow, even though the Bible tells him that he has changed when he’s accepted Jesus as his savior, he doesn’t feel changed. And as Paul enters a rebellious stage, he starts to indulge his own personal failures, losing touch with his faith and living lie after lie. One day, as a young husband and father, he just can’t sustain it any longer and finds himself hospitalized for severe depression and considering suicide as a viable way out. Still Standing is Paul’s personal story of coming to terms with the past and present in light of a faith in Jesus Christ. Be forewarned, his journey is no idealized picture of what a Christian should look like, but a discovery of how a real life, warts and all, can be transformed by a real God. In frank and frequently very funny fashion, Still Standing provides full disclosure in its chronicle of God reaching into the darkest corners of a man’s being, to bring light and healing to a life of faith gone wrong.

But as she explains in this series of 100 ‘life lessons’ maybe that’s okay... Refreshingly relatable and heartbreakingly honest, this is a book about discovering joy in the journey of a messy, work-in-progress walk of (sometimes failing, but still standing) faith.

It does not matter where you started from in life, whether through rough beginnings or maybe you have consciously taken an unforgettable path in life. All that matters today is that you continue to stand tall. Stand through the pain. Stand through the hurt. Stand through the discomfort. Stand through the trials and tribulations. Stand through defeat. Stand through the heartache. Stand through the betrayal. Stand through the brokenness. Stand through the confusion. And after you have done all you can, continue to stand because the best is yet to come!

Still Standing gives direction to anyone facing challenges or difficult situations in life. It draws wisdom and direction from my personal experiences, the experiences of others, compilations of short stories, lyrics of songs by popular song writers and artistes, poems, quotes, movies and ultimately the infallible Word of God (the Holy Bible), with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Oozing with positivity, this is the kind of book that one should have within easy reach. It reads like a trusted guide to the journey of life; a sort of 'chicken soup' remedy for life's trials and struggles. Its inspirational anecdotes are certainly good for the body and good for the soul. At the heart of its success is its practical simplicity and common-sense approach; it is a quick read and very memorable. Long after you put the book down the words still resonate and the section titles read as bite-size daily inspirations. Bible quotations have been drawn from various translations for clarity and simplicity. The language style is informal; making it extremely easy to read (you most likely will not need to pull out a dictionary!). It is broadly divided into two parts: Part 1 "Need to Know" and Part 2 "Need to Do" and made up of thirteen chapters; each chapter is a "flipped light switch" that floods our lives with warmth and brightness of the truth from God's Words unveiling to the reader, nuggets vital to living victoriously through life's challenges. It answers the "what?", "why?" and most importantly, the "how?" question
