Sellout: The Inside Story of President Clinton's Impeachment
Sellout: The Inside Story of President Clinton's Impeachment
von David P. Schippers
  Gebundene Ausgabe
Preis: EUR 27,38

4.0 von 5 Sternen Exposes The Real Washington, 19. September 2000
Let me begin by saying how good it is to have attorneys like David Schippers in America. He is truly a genuine man and cares about his profession and the Constitution. He does a fine job exposing some less than genuine people in Washington, especially the least genuine person of them all: President Clinton. Truthfully, I didn't give the book 5 stars because there really was nothing shockingly new. But, it was disheartening to learn how the Republican Senate sold out the House Managers, men who were just doing their jobs. It was even more stressing to read how the Democrats never even wanted to consider the facts, just to help one of their own. The worst was how the President used his power to sell out just about everyone in America. The things Clinton's cronies did to Kathleen Willey seem like something out of a movie. That was really frightening. But, Schippers had to show those things to show the truth. Schippers proves that Clinton can do this to anyone who crosses him, and why he deserved at least to get impeached. Overall, it's a shame Schippers had to receive such hate mail. He was only trying to do his job, and he did it admirably. The letters he received bashing him show how so many people don't care about justice, right vs. wrong, the Constitution, or America as a whole.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Pleasurable Read, 17. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Aristotle for Everybody (Taschenbuch)
This book makes Aristotle's teachings simple to comprehend and allows the reader to truly understand what the Greek thinker really thought. It was interesting to read Aristotle's ideas on how one should live life and that life should not be difficult if you live by his beliefs. I recommend this book to you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Mouth-watering Book, 6. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Juiceman's Power of Juicing (Taschenbuch)
This book made me want to juice so much I just went out and purchased a juicer. It tells the reader all about the health benefits of juicing, the different kinds of nutrients in many fruits and vegetables, and why juicing is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. So many diseases can be prevented if people would just juice more and made an effort to have a diet rich in foods from the earth. If you want to learn about juicing and crave fresh fruit and vegetable juices, buy Jay Kordich's book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The characters make it work, 28. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Eaters of the Dead (Taschenbuch)
This book was very good not only because of the story, but because of the characters. These barbaric vikings were brutal in battle and exceptional warriors, but they also seemed to have a side to them that the reader can care about. Ibn Fadlan depending on Herger the translator, Buliwyf showing courage through the journey while still accepting Fadlan, an outsider, into his clan, and the rest of the warriors fighting against evil and enjoying it are examples of how I gained interest in their personalities. I almost wanted to jump in and fight with them against the monsters of the mist. I don't want to give anything away, but I almost felt sorry for the vikings at the end. They were bloodied, battered, and exhausted, yet it was part of their duty to finish the job.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Read this book, its more than just science, 27. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cosmos (Taschenbuch)
"Cosmos" is so much more than a science book. It's a history book and a book that teaches so much about life and where we are headed. This book taught me so much about what is out there and how we are all related. "Cosmos" is exceptionally readable and you will keep the pages turning. Sagan seems to sum up the heavens and the earth all in one fantastic book. Read it not just to learn about evolution or astronomy, but to get a clear view of how the universe really works and how we relate to it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not terrifying, but good suspense, 27. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Andromeda Strain (Roman) (Taschenbuch)
I figured I would try to get into reading some of Michael Crichton's novels so I started with "The Andromeda Strain". It seemed it would be a frightening story of a satellite that fell to earth accidentally and carried with it a deadly virus that wreaked havoc across the nation. More or less it was an isolated case of scientists and doctors trying to figure out what happened in small town Arizona. It never seemed to evolve into the hair raising story I wanted it to be, but it was a good book nontheless.


Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline
Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline
von Robert H. Bork
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bork tries to keep a once great country together, 26. Juni 2000
Unfortunately I had to say "once great country" in my titlebecause I am convinced the United States is overrun with modernliberals who want to keep people stupid and happy in their own ignorance. Robert Bork showed me that he is committed to making the US a proud and powerful nation not only in stature but in spirit.
How could Bork be wrong for wanting the American family strong and moral citizens praised for their actions in society? But, today this is politically incorrect talk. Today hardcore homosexuals and criminals and unwed pregnant women and the ones who are felt compassion for and admired. Why, because of their actions which are either unnatural or just plain ignorant. I am tired of all this. A white, middle-class, heterosexual man who shows any kind of pride is now considered racist, homophobic, and anti-woman. But, those who disagree with me all just think Bork's work is laughable and cold-hearted. No wonder we are in the position we are today.
Unless the morality in this once great country improves, we are destined to suffer a fate that is unimaginable. Hopefully modern liberals will see the error in their ways and use common sense. I do not want to offend classical liberalism, just this modern liberalism that has engulfed the country. Do I want everyone to become as conservative as Bork? No, but don't you modern liberals want a country based on morals and wise judgement. I guess not, and future generations will suffer because of it.


Last Call: 10 Commonsense Solutions to America's Biggest Problems
Last Call: 10 Commonsense Solutions to America's Biggest Problems
von Rob Nelson
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 13,03

4.0 von 5 Sternen A very agreeable book, 28. Mai 2000
Rob Nelson's ideas are innovative and I think they could work. I do not know too much about politics or how Washington works, but his thoughts for a better tomorrow seem very agreeable to me. His ideas for non-violent offenders be put in a boot camp seems very smart, it would alleviate some pressure on the crumbling prison system and it would rehabilitate these people instead of just punishing them for their stupidity. I also liked his ideas of saving social security and stopping the national debt from growing. We need to do something about these problems now to keep the future from turning ugly. I did disagree with Nelson on some issues, though. He seemed to favor a pro-choice stand on abortion, even though he really did not get into that topic much. Personally, abortion is selfish and against the Declaration of Independence's claim of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. He also seemed to be against the second amendment. He wanted it changed to be more contemporary, but I think the issue should be more about education and better parenting than government involvement. Nelson also wants mandatory voting registration. It's your decision to kill an unborn child but you must be required by law to vote? That's why we live in America, we do not have to vote if we do not want to. I do agree with his argument, though, that more people need to vote and that elected officials would rather have a small number of faithful voters because it's less people to influence. Overall, I agree with Nelson that our society is decaying. Our elected officials, Democrat and Republican, (see I don't hate Clinton), all seem to be corrupt and uncaring from president on down, that is why we need to make a Last Call and return to glory. Spread the word, Rob.
