  • The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming (and Environmentalism)

    The big media have spoken on the question of global warming, and the debate is officially over. "Be afraid, be very afraid", warns Time magazine. But have Al Gore and his environmentalist allies really proven their case? Not even close, says Christopher C. Horner.

    "Watermelons"
    Overall

    Excellent, common sense, well-documented book about the real reason so many otherwise obviously sane and intelligent people claim to believe the incredible apocalyptic claims of global warming. It is their way of pushing for total government after the Communist plans for world domination didn't work out for them. The forces now at the forefront of this world-wide effort to destroy free market capitalism and put all power in government dictatorships are the former Communists who now call themselves "Greens" --hence watermelons, green on the outside and red on the inside. The author knows these people and their organizations and tactics and he tells about them in this book in an entertaining way for such a serious subject.

    After a near-fatal head injury, Navy SEAL lieutenant Tom Paoletti catches a terrifying glimpse of an international terrorist in his New England hometown. When he calls for help, the Navy dismisses the danger as injury-induced imaginings. In a desperate effort to prevent disaster, Tom creates his own makeshift counterterrorist team, assembling his most loyal officers, two elderly war veterans, a couple of misfit teenagers, and Dr. Kelly Ashton - the sweet girl next door who has grown into a remarkable woman.

    Melissa says: "The first of many"
    "The unsung hero got short shrift"
    Overall

    There was a plot in there somewhere but most of the time the author spent on sexual fantasies and sexual acts --the book should have been classified under pornography.

  • Aristotle and an Aardvark Go to Washington: Political Doublespeak Through Philosophy & Jokes

    In Aristotle and an Aardvark Go to Washington, our two favorite philosopher-comedians return just in time to save us from the doublespeak and flim-flam of politics in America.

    Deploying jokes as well as the occasional insight from Aristotle and his peers, Cathcart and Klein explain what politicos are up to when they state: "The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence"; "It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is"; or even, "We hold these truths to be self-evident...."

    Beth says: "Funny political fallacies"
    "Jokes and Philosopy --Neither!"
    Overall

    I expected humor by the title and discussing philosophy is usually interesting and educational --this book was neither one. The jokes (as far as I got into it) were old and what the authors called philosophy, I would call ad hominem political attacks and just plain bias. Not that I didn't agree with some of the criticism of those being attacked here --it was just done poorly and without style.

  • Pursuit of Honor: Mitch Rapp Series

    The action begins six days after a series of explosions devastated Washington, D.C., targeting the National Counterterrorism Center and killing 185 people, including public officials and CIA employees. It was a bizarre act of extreme violence that called for extreme measures on the part of elite counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp and his trusted team member, Mike Nash.

    Jason J Preston says: "Another Outstandung Vince Flynn Book"
    "The way it should be..."
    Overall

    After fighting the self-serving, entrenched, arrogant politicians for so many years it is a fantasy escape to read a story where they get slapped down and truth and justice prevail even if it is the hard way. The ACLU, whacky enviro and pseudo human rights groups and the like are exposed for what they are by Flynn through his patriotic characters. I think that is a major appeal of this and other Flynn books. The plots are interesting, too. I liked this book also because many of the characters are identifiable in today's congress. Flynn shows with examples that relate to current problems in the country today like political correctness and the negative influence of lawyers our overly litigious society. It is a good read, or should I say listen. The narrator is excellent, too.
