While Laura Ingraham was walking through a Northern Virginia shopping mall one Saturday afternoon, it all became clear to her. Everywhere she turned, she saw signs of the impending disaster: zombie teens texting each other across a café table; a man having his eyebrows threaded at a kiosk; a 50ish woman shoe-horned into a tube top and skinny jeans; and a storefront ad featuring a Victoria's Secret model spilling out of her push-up bra and into the faces of young passersby. Ingraham wondered to herself, Is this it? Is this what our forefathers fought for? What my parents struggled for? I wonder if Victoria's Secret is still having that two-for-one sale?

A menacing force surrounds us. We see it, we feel it, we know it. The country we love is in grave peril. While politicians and experts prattle on about the debt crisis at home, and terrorism abroad, a more insidious homegrown threat is emerging. It endangers our future and undermines our present. The uncomfortable truth: We have become our own worst enemy. The culture we have created is now turning on us. We're on the verge of drowning in our ignorance, arrogance, gluttony... can you believe there are only three shots of vanilla in a Caramel Macchiato?!?

Now, in an act of patriotic intervention, the most-listened-to woman in talk radio casts her satirical eye upon all that ails American society. In this sharp-witted, comic romp, Laura Ingraham takes you on a guided tour through 10 levels of our cultural hell.

You know we're in trouble when:

  • Airplane seats shrink - just as the passengers expand.
  • Celebrity baby names go from the peculiar (Apple, Stetson, and Daisy Boo) to the pathetic (Bamboo, Blanket, and Bronx).
  • People meticulously tend their virtual crops on Farmville, while their children eat takeout.
  • Breaking News usually means it happened yesterday.
  • The weddings last longer than the marriages.
  • Facebook has become a verb and read... Download and start listening now!

    " You know how you and others may complain about a pet peeve on social media? Imagine 1-3 paragraphs on everything that can be found annoying in a 300 page book. After a while, I got tired of reading about what ticks Ingraham off. But reading it helped the time go by while I was on cardio machines at the gym... "

    " I got it because it was it was deeply discounted and the opening seemed funny. The opening was funny, but it became an attack on anything unlike Ms Ingraham and her mom. Further in, her cultural zings were an excuse to blame the decline of America on immigrants, the young, MSNBC and liberals. I can only image her musing at her favorite country club how perfect America would have been if Reagan had been president for life. "
