I Hate Democrats/I Hate Republicans is a different kind of political commentary.
Tim Young uses his trademark snark and outrageous personal stories to break down how both parties have their failings, and how our political system has been tainted by bias from all sides. He then engages you, the reader, in the hopes that you’ll understand that the ultimate check and balance on our American political system is to first, check yourself.
In this funny, intellectual, and controversial book, Young challenges you to open your mind to perspectives that you have previously written off, and admit as he has that at times, you yourself are outright wrong!
Parents, do you often think that if your kids had to grow up the way you did—without iPads, 70-inch flatscreen TVs, American Girl dolls, and wifi in the climate controlled minivan—that they might actually be better off? Do you feel underappreciated or ignored? Do you worry you’re raising a bunch of spoiled softies who will never know how to do anything themselves—because you do everything for them? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need Daddy, Stop Talking.
Adam rips parenthood a new one, telling it straight about what adults must do if they don’t want to have to support their kids forever. Using his own crappy childhood as a cautionary tale, and touting the pitfalls of the kind of helicopter parenting so pervasive today, Daddy, Stop Talking is the only parenting book you should ever read. Here, too, is sage advice to Adam’s own kids—and to future parents—on what matters most: dating; drinking and drugs; buying your first house and car; puberty; and what kind of assholes his kids (and yours) should avoid becoming. Even if his own son and daughter pretty much ignore everything he says, you shouldn’t. And you’re welcome. Again.
