Increasing my ops tempo by allowing storytellers to whisper in my ear(buds).
The strong point of this book is that it is a lesson in American history that gives a viewpoint that is not taught to our children any more. The Plymouth Colony first tried a socialistic work arrangement but had to resort to a reward system to motivate the people to do the necessary work. In these dark times when we are witnessing the European Socialist states implode under the weight of their unsustainable welfare yet still see the progressive creep toward the same failed system here on our shores.
As a work of fiction, this short book is clearly a piece is targeting young skulls full of mush. But as a history lesson it is very accessible for kids and it presents a message I want my kids to know.
Rush Limbaugh, well-known for his flowing speech when speaking unscripted off the cuff, here gives a strangely stilted reading of his own words. But there is a certain appeal to having the text read by the author.
This wonderful tale of these two little girls is a must read. It is horrific to think that these kinds of events could/did really happen. But in the true sense of Dickens, we should not let it happen anymore. I love dolls and this helps explain why. Dolls heal us all.
