Jefferson, long thought of, as a "pacifistic" president declared America's first war on foreign soil in response to "Islamic Jihad".
European nations had given in to buying off "peace" with the Barbary Coast states. Many of their citizens being subjugated to slavery and all of the attendant horrors. The Barbary Coast states (North African
states of Morocco, Tripolitania, Tunisia,Algeria) declared Islamic Jihad on America because Jefferson refused to pay the extortion fee.
This is an interesting bit of American/World History.The correlation with today's current events will not be missed by the listener. The narrator is excellent.
I find Norm MacDonald's comedy to be brilliant.
Listening to this cd had me crying with laughter.
"A Wonderful Afternoon Gone Awry" w/ Will Farrel
was exceptional and a groundbreaking piece.
The album may be a bit controversial but I sure enjoyed it!
Noam drones on in his continuing saga of "Amerika; The Real Enemy."
His moaning is encouraged by David Barsamian, recipient of the ACLU's Upton Sinclair Award.
Bernie Goldberg, in my opinion, is one of the most responsible and balanced journalists of our time. He has served his nation well.
Bernard Goldberg has an interesting list of suspects from both sides of the political spectrum.(Yes, Liberals should be delighted with some of his picks).
Witty and thoughtful.
The material that hit the Left (approx. 1-6 ratio) was hilarious!
Most of the material that bashed the Right (esp. Christians), p***ed me off!
Either I have veered more towards the Righr or Maher is getting only less politically correct than Alec Baldwin.
I still got my laughs for the buck and I still like Bill.
Dave's take on Japan, the Japanese, the food, flying, feeling tall,
and much more. His memories of the 50's Sci-Fi and WWII movies alone
are worth the price of admission.
This is one of Dave's funniest.
Bob and Ray. A unique pair of dry wit comics.
Gentle and laugh out loud funny.
I love off beat comedy and this is a wonderful
addition to my library.
More Bob and Ray please!
George Carlin is one of the Comedy Greats. His curmudgeonly, ascerbic humor is honest. Being a Conservative Christian he often offends me, and hopefully he will offend you too, whatever your beliefs.This is a wonderful collection of Carlin's material.
I also recommend "When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops" (ouch), Carlin's latest. George Carlin is a funny man.
This is a must read for those who want to know why and what are The Most Important Issues facing us. This book will help you put it into perspective.
Stick with it. I have given is 5 stars for the political insight, the gravity and the import. I read the book and will be getting the Audio.
What a disappointment! Here i was, hoping to learn something. It soon became clear, this was a pc professor (of the Howard Zinn strain), pushing his pc political agenda.
I feel terible that I helped put $$$ in this man's pocket.....
Do yourself a favor.....skip this OR do a "Google" search on the author BEFORE purchasing. I wish I had.
