It happens to all of us: You're minding your own business, when some idiot informs you that guns are evil, the Prius will save the planet, or the rich have to finally start paying their fair share of taxes.

Just go away! you think to yourself -- but they only become more obnoxious.>br /> Your heart rate quickens.
You start to sweat.
You can't get away.
Your only hope is.... this audio book.

Glenn Beck, author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers An Inconvenient Book and Glenn Beck's Common Sense, has stumbled upon the secret formula to winning arguments against people with big mouths but small minds: knowing the facts.

And this audio book is full of them.

The next time your idiot friends tell you how gun control prevents gun violence, you'll tell them all about England's handgun ban.
When they tell you that we should copy the UK's health-care system, you'll recount the horrifying facts you read (heard) on page 244.
And the next time an idiot tells you that vegetable prices will skyrocket without illegal workers, you'll stop saying "no, they won't" and you'll start saying, "actually, eliminating all illegal labor will cause us to spend just $8 a year more on produce."

Idiots can't be identified through voting records, they can be found only by looking for people who hide behind stereotypes, embrace partisanship, and believe that bumper sticker slogans are a substitute for common sense.
If you know someone who fits the bill, then Arguing with Idiots will help you silence them once and for all with the ultimate weapon: the truth.

Arguing with Idiots is a book written by conservative syndicated radio talk show host Glenn Beck, in collaboration with his company, Mercury Radio Arts.

The book is formatted as a series of responses by Beck, dressed up in a variation of an outfit worn by the United States' founding fathers, to statements made by the "Idiot", played by Beck, apparently dressed in a parody of a military uniform, consisting of a modified Bundeswehr tunic and Soviet visor cap, with an example picture on the front cover.
On the back cover are a few of the negative criticisms Beck has accumulated.

Among the issues Beck discusses are progressivism in the United States, capitalism, the Second Amendment, as well as education, energy in America, labor unions, illegal immigration, the "nanny state", owning a home, economics, American presidents, universal health care, and the U.S. Constitution.

The material is out of print.

But you may find it at year sales, auctions houses, eBay, second hand/thrift store or your local library.
