Over the next few days, he writes …
reviewed Unions for Beginners. November 17, 2013
The forty-hour work week, pensions and safe working conditions became part of the American employment landscape because employers felt that it was the proper thing to do, right? No, those things came into existence because of strikes and agitation by labor unions.      Why are unions supposedly at the root of America's financial problems, despite the huge drop in numbers of …
As shown in the title, the author, a CIA veteran, doesn't believe that the Agency needs fixing or "tweaking." He strongly believes that it needs to be torn down and totally rebuilt. During World War II, in the days of the OSS, a person or group was given a mission, which usually involved being dropped behind enemy lines, and was told to make it happen. They treated intelligence work …

'Hyde Park On The Hudson'
It's 1939, and while FDR is preparing to host the King and Queen of England at his New York home, he makes time for a new mistress.      Bill Murray does a good job underplaying FDR, making him very cheerful and down-to-earth, while also a very bad husband. Laura Linney plays Daisy, the mistress. She's dishwater-dull and completely without appeal, but FDR, apparently, …

This novel looks at the presidency of America's first black, female President.      In 2012, things are not going well for Kalinda Resbo.

Bullies: How The Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America
"When we talk about political bullying, we're talking about the bullying of private citizens by government actors, media heavies, Hollywood, and organizational allies outside of government. THAT sort of bullying creates a climate of fear among Americans, forcing them to abandon cherished principles, back nasty causes, or shut up entirely. And the left relies on that sort of bullying to the …

"Americans must produce a photo ID to obtain a library card, drink a beer, cash a check, board an airplane, buy a train ticket, or check in to a hotel. They understand that requiring voter ID is a common-sense reform that helps protect the security and protection of the election process." ---former Democratic Congressman Artur Davis      As I prepare this review Democrats …

The World America Made
Readable but not highly exciting. It entails the power shift and dominance position of the U.S. to multi nations. A book written more for American audience, imho. It has less pages than many of books I've read so far and I haven't learn much new stuff or thoughts from it!

Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA)
I'm giving this letter a test run to see what others think of me sending it to a Senator for New York.    Dear Senator,     I guess it would be redundant to ask for the release of the monetary figures it took to get this bill a foothold in Congress. Exchanges for bills like that tend to happen only under the table. Perhaps that's part of SOPA's appeal - stopping …

Rick Perry
Okay, this guy officially isn't a potential nominee anymore. He's a social experiment trying to see just how crazy one can get before we think he's too crazy to be in charge of his local choir. Fortunately, he seems bent on destroying his campaign now. First there was his "it doesn't take a Christian to see this country has a problem when gays can serve in the Military" ad. Apparently it does, because …

If George Carlin were still around and took a political affiliation, then he would be Bill Maher! Bill uses George's same brand of humor and spins it to his his left-wing point of view. Most of the material here is from his Real-Time New Rules segments but some of it is new. He says things that if there real ghosts they would have to be naked. This is because the person died and their soul is …

Legalizing Marijuana!
I think if they came up with laws and guidelines as with alcohol and tabacco, the legalization of weed would be much better! I mean, Amsterdam had legalized it, so why can't we? It would also make the stuff much cheaper and we would probably have more control over its distribution (as with not selling to minors)      If it does get legalized, I hope the restrictions and guidelines …

This is a look at the world around us, and how America is being systematically destroyed, but not from the "usual" sources. It is not a pretty picture.      Anyone who takes vitamins or nutritional supplements needs to know about the Codex Alimentarius Commission. Under the auspices of the UN and the World Health Organization, it is an international commission whose aim …
