A Country of Vast Designs by Robert Merry would be a good one. It is about the run up to the Mexican - American War and shows how Congress is supposed to work in our Republic. I expect most Americans would not recognize the system.

7652Here's my latest suggestion for a good read:

'party of one'....the loners' manifesto by anneli rufus


Her book 'party of one' is about our subculture--the subculture that will never, by nature, join hands and whose voices will never, by nature, form a chorus. Some loners are sculptors and some are office cleaners. Some loners are neuroscientists and some are surfers and some are survivor fans. Some are law students.

No two loners are alike, but all of us have one thing in common: We like to be alone. We like it. Everyone else--non-loners, that is--can't stand to be alone. They squirm. They feel ashamed. They yearn for company when they're alone. They're bored and don't know what to do. They're lonely. We're not.


Maybe we're not holed up in caves all day, or in submarines like Captain Nemo in his Nautilus. But alone we feel most normal. Most ourselves. Most alive.


Mainstream culture loves non-loners. Joiners, schmoozers, teamworkers, congregants and all those who play well with others scoop up the rewards.


Meanwhile, loners get dissed. All the time. At school, at work, at church or temple, in movies, loners are misunderstood, misjudged, loathed, pitied, and feared. Reporters and profilers calmly and constantly call us perverts, losers, stalkers, and serial killers.


Non-loners call loners crazy. Cold. Stuck-up. Standoffish. Selfish. Sad. Bad. Secretive. But we know being a loner isn't about hating people. It's about essence, about necessity. We need what others dread. We dread what others need.


Famous loners span every era, every realm. Albert Einstein, Ann Rice, Michelangelo, Barry Bonds, Isaac Newton, Franz Kafka, Stanley Kubrick, Janet Reno, John Lennon, James Michener, Emily Dickinson, Alexander Pope, Herman Hesse, Paul Westerberg, Georgia O'Keeffe, Kurt Cobain, Haruki Murakami, Gustav Klimt, Charles Schultz, Dan Cloves, Piet Mondrain, Saint Anthony, H.P. Lovecraft, Beatrix Potter, and Joe DiMaggio.


Not to mention Superman, Batman and Shiva.


So--as the pickpockets sang in the musical Oliver!--consider yourself one of us.

Peter1469

public figure n. in the law of defamation (libel and slander), a personage of great public interest or familiarity like a government official, politician, celebrity, business leader, movie star, or sports hero. Incorrect harmful statements published about a public figure cannot be the basis of a lawsuit for defamation unless there is proof that the writer or publisher intentionally defamed the person with malice (hate).

(http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Term+of+Art)A term of art is a word or phrase that has a particular meaning. Terms of art abound in the law.

In the law, (http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Term+of+Art)Double Jeopardy (http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Double+Jeopardy) refers specifically to an impermissible second trial of a defendant for the same offense that gave rise to the first trial.

Well, no one is ever going to accuse you of having an open mind. Its your kind of attitude along with your misunderstanding and or perhaps your inability to cope with race issues that is the problem here; and the problem is all yours.
When people can't or won't read up on the other side or listen to the opposing opinions of an issue, then one is led to believe that person doesn't know his ass from his elbow.
For example, I for one will watch and listen to the horrible MSNBC parade out one liberal hack after another giving their progressive take on every current issue. I even read books by liberal authors in order to educate myself to the opposing anti American progressive pabulum rhetoric.

What are you afraid of by a reading of a Duke or a Malkin book? You sound like a little boy who didn't get his tootsie roll. And what do have against trying to save the WHITE race from extinction? Merely talking about it seems to scare you away.

Gold star of david for you. Look, I realize there are a lot of closed-minded people around who either have no interest in learning facts about race relations or have this WHITE guilt over our slave history as a nation to where they won't read or discuss race under any circumstance. There are also those of you who have this pre-conditioned notion that anything Duke says or does has to come from a racist mindset. I get it.....this book wouldn't do anything for a person having a closed vitriol speaking mind. So I'll mark you as a no show for membership in my ever exciting book club. Perhaps you'll see why the other book I offer here...'party of one' makes so much sense. I wonder with so many anti Christians around here if I would receive as much consternation had I offered the reading of the BIBLE? Food for thought my good man.
