For the Daily Prompt: BYOB (ookworm)

Write the blurb for the book jacket of the book you would write, if only you had the time and inclination.

IF there was ever an opinion writer who is renowned for ruffling the feathers of more than one politician, celebrity or public figure – it would be Joseph E. Rathjen. Long known for his no-holds-barred opinions and straight-forward analyses of political and social chaos, Rathjen has become the unheard voice of mainstream and non-mainstream America.

As one notable politician said recently: “He is the voice of the voices that don’t want to be heard, and the ones who only have the courage to write honest narrative while hiding alone in their bathrooms!”

In this book’s 25-year compilation of opinion articles from Rathjen’s blog, newspaper columns and magazine articles, he takes us through two-and-a-half decades of political and social unrest. Some of his opinions are serious, some of them are weird, and some of them are downright hilarious.

What’s contained in this book is more than one man’s opinion. It is a collection of history in the making and how average Americans reacted to it. Some are happy, some are sad and some are hostile.

Like one famous entertainer said publicly about Rathjen:  “I don’t know what to do with him. One day I wanna kiss him and the next day I want to behead him!”

Open the front cover and let yourself be the judge!


Joseph E. Rathjen is a book author, Columnist and an Opinion Writer for 1World Online – America’s Fastest Growing Social Research Engine
