    Read anything by Chris Hedges.

    If you're ready for it you'll love what he says. If you're not, and most won't be, you'll hate it and act out against it.

    Trump isn't our 45th American president; he's our 1st Russian one.

    Remember this on Tuesday November 3rd, 2020

    For those who want to dive into some American history, the books and commentary books below are all excellent. I put a favorite first, but for early history, see Wood or 'That's not'. O'Neill is another favorite of mine.

    'The Glory and the Dream: A Narrative History of America, 1932-1972' William Manchester - best narrative history I have read

    'The Idea of America: Reflections on the Birth of the United States' Gordon S. Wood

    'American High: The Years of Confidence, 1945-1960' by William L. O'Neill
    'A Bubble in Time: America During the Interwar Years, 1989-2001' by William L. O'Neill
    'Coming Apart: An Informal History of America in the 1960s' by William L. O'Neill

    “Battle Cry of Freedom,’’ James McPherson The definitive history of the Civil War. One of the greatest works of history I’ve ever read and arguably the best one-volume history in existence. Having said that…

    'That's Not What They Meant!: Reclaiming the Founding Fathers from America's Right Wing' Michael Austin

    'Injustices: The Supreme Court's History of Comforting the Comfortable and Afflicting the Afflicted' Ian Millhiser

    'White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America' by Nancy Isenberg


    "A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic, it’s a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you’re inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years." Carl Sagan
    Wanna make America great, buy American owned, made in the USA, We do.

    "I don't believe anything I write or say. I regard belief as a form of brain damage, the death of intelligence, the fracture of creativity, the atrophy of imagination. I have opinions but no belief system (B.S.)." Robert Anton Wilson [me too]

    FD: I don't have time to read quotes and reply, PM me if you think you have countered any of my comments or threads. Tx

    The Nixon Tapes. This is Nixon and his staff in their own words. It would show people who think he was misunderstood and not so bad the truth. He was a genuine danger to the American system. History whitewashes crimes of Nixon. There has been nothing like his danger to our system until Trump came along. The comparisons are chilling.,

    How An Economy Grows And Why It Crashes:

    https://www.amazon.com/How-Economy-G.../dp/047052670X


    That book is a good read. It would most certainly give Lefties a slight clue as to how businesses operate, for starters...



    AND, this isn't a "book", but I especially recommend that people give this one a read... It's not very long either...

    I've recently gained a larger interest in the growing power of the East and would like some recommendations for books relating to the political power of China and the east. The New Silk Road by Peter Frankopan was recommended to me and I would like to know your thoughts?
