A Review of “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook”

Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook by Mark Bray My rating: 5 of 5 stars These days? An absolutely essential book. Necessary, especially in 2020 America. Because most Americans haven't been exposed to historical fascism the way Europeans have, most don't have an accurate, complete or in some cases any understanding at all about this very dangerous …

Book Review: Henry Ford’s “The International Jew”

The International Jew by Henry Ford My rating: 2 of 5 stars This is an unusual book to give a rating to or write a review about. I'd read quite a bit about this book before ever reading this book. (And I'm currently reading two interesting books on the man. They are Max Wallace's The …

Governors reopening their states are endangering American lives

I ran across this excellent article I wish I had written by Jill Filipovic on CNN. For those of you who feel the few Republican governors who are doing this are doing so prematurely and stupidly and thus unnecessarily risking the lives of their respective states's citizens, this article will more than confirm that belief. …

“The Liar Tweets Tonight”: A Song Parody

Considering everything that's going on these days and the fact that the person most responsible for this mess in the US is using nearly every waking minute of each day trying to shift blame to anyone else, anywhere, and accept no responsibility -- unless it's bullshit lies about positive stuff he claims he did -- …

Book Review: Dot.Con: How America Lost Its Mind and Money in the Internet Era

Dot.Con: How America Lost Its Mind and Money in the Internet Era by John Cassidy My rating: 3 of 5 stars This is a relatively interesting book and not poorly written. Indeed, for those who don’t remember or didn’t live through this period, I would likely be recommending it and giving it a higher rating. …

Book Review: Leningrad: State of Siege

Leningrad: State of Siege by Michael Jones My rating: 4 of 5 stars Westerners tend to think of their losses, sacrifices, etc., when thinking about WWII, and Americans in particular like to "brag" on how not only did they save the world twice in less than 35 years, but "won" WWII. I'm an American with …

Book Review: The Tragedy of U.S. Foreign Policy: How America’s Civil Religion Betrayed the National Interest

The Tragedy of U.S. Foreign Policy: How America's Civil Religion Betrayed the National Interest by Walter A. McDougall My rating: 2 of 5 stars I didn't like this book. And my criticisms are probably unfair, because the author most likely accomplished what he set out to do. I think I merely misinterpreted or misunderstand the …

Those Blasted Presbyterians: Reflections on Independence Day

I found this blog post by Don Sweeting this morning while browsing around. I thought it was good. Those Blasted Presbyterians: Reflections on Independence Day. I hope everyone had a good Independence Day. The rain largely held off here and it was supposed to thunderstorm, so we got to go downtown and enjoy seeing the …
