Just finished reading Stop The Coming Civil War by Michael Savage and in the middle of reading his most recent book
Government Zero.

I don't agree with everything this guy says but If you think this POS POTUS is ruining this country on purpose you
would be correct.

Also in the middle of reading the Game of Thrones books and The Walking Dead graphic novels....

Swamp Yankee - ain't heard that since I was a youngster. While it may have been used in the pejorative, I'll take it as a compliment. Cool

I just finished reading "Instinct" by T.D. Jakes & "Primary Greatness" by Steven Covey. I am headed to the library for my next book. I have never been hooked on books but man O man has that changed. I traded in clouding my brain for enlightening it.

Just confirmed my worst fear...the average Joe has no protection from the destructive greed of the actual controllers of money and power: they say f u and we say thank you...

I read the movie is much more light-hearted than the prose...maybe I should've seen it first, but then I may have missed the author's true insight and intent...

I read The Snowman, a Harry Hole novel by Nesbo a couple of years ago...good read.

Just finished Genghis Khan, by Jack Weatherford. Author is an anthropology professor at a university in Minnesota. He makes a case that Khan's empire, which connected and blended the best of cultures in China, India, Europe and the middle East, was the most influential event leading to the modern world.

Yah, the latest Jack Reacher novels I've read: Make Me and Worth Dying For, were less satisfying than his earlier ones.
