April 5, 2011, 6:30pm, join Busboys & Poets for the launch of Brian Kahn’s new book (and response to Glenn Beck) Real Common Sense: Using our Founding Values to Reclaim Our Nation and Stop the Radical Right from Hijacking America. America’s extreme Right falsely claims the Founding Fathers as allies for their radical agenda. Pundit Glenn Beck has gone so far as to use the title of Tom Paine’s famous 1776 pamphlet Common Sense for his own book—a book that attacks the political, social and economic rights which Paine and the Founders fought for! Kahn claims it’s time to cut through the rhetoric, smoke, and spin, and get back to our core American values. The featured book is available for purchase at the Global Exchange store located inside Busboys and Poets, 5th &K. This event is cosponsored by Code Pink and Global Exchange. Event is FREE and open to the public! Location:1025 5th Street NW Washington, DC 20001.
