Anger and Mourning on the American Right - Strangers in Their Own Land
Anger and Mourning on the American Right - Strangers in Their Own Land

Review: The focus of this work was the empathy gap between the urban and rural communities in America. Specifically, the premise was that the two sides of American culture didn't communicate with one another, and more important, did not understand the underlying values of each. Stated more directly, from the perspective of the author (a faculty member from Berkley), Americans from urban, academic, or at least highly educated communities do not understand why individuals from rural America vote against...

The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide - White Rage
The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide - White Rage

Review: i am only giving this 4 stars.
Not because of the research. It is spot on. Its due to the blanket assumption that this rage is directed to all blacks in America.
Middle and Upper middle class black built an insular society parallel to middle and upper middle class whites after slavery. When Jim Crow laws became too invasive, the fight for desegration began. Middle class women didn't ride the buses in Montgomery, but it had to be one because a pregnant girl or a dark skinned poor one was a ... Read more

We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy
We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy

Review: Powerful.....a world I did not know, did not understand, did not appreciate its impact upon the African-American populace. This is a MUST read.
Profound. Glad I read it, only wish I could have read it as a young man - would have given me more time to try to make a positive impact against this stain on the American story Read more

Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America
Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America

Review: This book really helped me understand the difficulty of spanning the gap between the black culture and the "privileged white." I am white and failed all these years to see that, while do not consider myself discriminatory toward people of color, for sure I have not had to put up with the downcast looks or being pulled over by a cop because I look like I might "cause trouble" or that "might" break a law.

The Fire Next Time
The Fire Next Time

Review: Just a paperback, but powerfully written. I revisit this book ever so often, so as not to forget the damming effects of slavery on the human psyche. This is a sobering revelation of the cruelity of mankind. Read more

Third Edition (Studies in Law and Economics) - Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws
Third Edition (Studies in Law and Economics) - Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws

Review: This is not an easy read, as it is a scholarly work with a lot of charts and tables, and considerable discussion of the statistical techniques and regression analyses that Lott used in arriving at the conclusions presented here. But I would categorize it as a "must-read" for anyone who has a serious interest in the gun control debate, and who is looking for facts - rather than emotion - upon which to form an opinion. Lott's conclusions are compelling and well supported. He also deals, in a st... Read more

Where Did the Towers Go? Evidence of Directed Free-energy Technology on 9/11
Where Did the Towers Go? Evidence of Directed Free-energy Technology on 9/11

Review: Excellent book! All the pieces seem to fall into place now. We all knew that 9/11 wasn't what _they_ told us it was. This is HARD scientific proof of what DID actually take place, unfortunately. I still can't find the answer as to why our government killed their own, and more importantly, how they can live with themselves. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and the other "elite" globalists will have to face their maker one day. Thank God for Judy! Thank you for your tenacity and unwavering strength an... Read more

The War That Ended Peace: The Road to 1914

Review: Took me a long time to get through the book. Relationships and foreign names were hard to follow. I do like non-fiction books. I
enjoyed the historical importance of it. It was easy to draw similarities in today's world, unfortunately. Read more
