Defend the Book: 500 Stormtroopers needed to stop book-buying fraud

The headlines this morning only confirmed the fears of many of us concerned about rampant fraud perpetrated in this nation’s bookstores.

Barnes & Noble says PIN pads in 63 stores hacked
Barnes & Noble said Tuesday that devices used by customers to swipe credit and debit cards have been tampered with in 63 of its stores in nine states…

Indeed, the fraud may be worst of all in Illinois, the very Same Illinois that gave us foul-mouthed liberal filth from Ernest Hemingway, Nelson Algren and Philip K. Dick. Just Mister Dick’s name sounds dirty. William L. Shirer, also a Chicagoan, wrote about Hitler. Shel Silverstein pretended to care about the children, but peddled cartoons to that infamous smut rag Playboy. I need not say anything more about Studs Terkel. And Ann Landers? What was she hiding, all high and mighty with all her advice? Nobody is that good.

Don’t we deserve better? It is 2012. Can’t we come up with a better safer system to eliminate the scourge of Book Fraud. Defend the, a non-partisan group needs 500 judges to help protect our sovereign American right to buy a retail book, puzzle or collectible.

The trouble begins with access. Do you realize that anyone can simply walk into a book store and buy a book? And no one asks for identification? Defend the insinuates that illegal aliens might be perpetrating a mass fraud in bookstores across this country, and endangering the sacred right to read everything from chick-lit to substantial works of literature, such as “50 Shades of Gray.” The hacking scandal in 63 of the chains 725 stores, and 640 college bookstores, serving better than 2.5 million customers daily, with perhaps several dozen victims from the hacking obviously constitutes a veritable epidemic!

There is  a deep and dark history of book fraud in America. If you haven’t heard about the “WaldenBooks” debacle regarding Sierra Club wall calenders during the mid-1970’s thank the liberally-oriented bookclubs that proliferate ithout a shred of oversight throughout the country. These innocent housewives and students are the goose-stepping, Acorn-like shock troops “free” thought. Remember what “free” love led to; satisfied, assertive women, heralding the destruction of our male-centered way of life.

Defend the Book therefore feels it is imperative to demand the birth certificates of all managers and booksellers. Shouldn’t we know who is selling books to our children?

The group will begin deploying it’s 500 “stormtroopers” of book-selling integrity near each register. They will challenge anyone attempting to purchase a book, who then will be required to produce “appropriate” identification. A spokesperson from Defend the Book said that anyone buying books by Jeff Foxworthy, Sean Hannity or Mike Huckabee would be exempt.

The only way to clean up the electoral, pardon, I mean the book selling business and eliminate those dozens of cases of a PIN possibly being stolen among the tens of millions of book buying transactions is to harrass, and if need be, intimidate each and every book buyer, and to be absolutely certain of who is purchasing books in this great nation of ours.

So, support Defend the Vote, or rather Defend the Book, and weigh in this Saturday morning on Awakened America at 7am on WCPT am820, as we confront voter(there I go again), I mean Book buying fraud in Illinois.
