Herr Goad must be reported to a higher authority (if there is one over the New York Times (2), White Christian based people may not all be blessed (2), the Jerusalem Post) and he should be made to suffer for his sins against the truth from New York. Mr. Goad goes so far as to suggest that White People may have endured more than the Negroes and that they as a group actually exist as a larger underclass th (2), the Schiffs (1), of the same genre (1), adventure all just drop into his lap. (1), the Rockefellers and the rest of the cabal of bankers who own (1), the Warburgs (1), and especially white people. (1), are ignored - as if there is a financial or political purpose in highlighting one set of facts over another. And so it goes. (1), They are incapable of maintaining a functioning (1), cannibalistic - it's okay and probably won all of the awards for its "brave" (not) attack on all things human (1), and Hobsbawm. (1), and you hear nary a word about it - it is interesting how some stories are emphasized and others (1), A decent novel about the British in East Africa circa 1900. Tension with the (as always) evil Germans versus the (as always) pure and good English - some interesting hunting scenes - a kind of silly and trite love story between a whore and the protagonist (1), Tepid recounting of author's failed attempt to retrace Stanley's incredible journey down the Congo River. The author quit before completing the journey while sniveling about how it was just too hard - think what Stanley went through - and he didn't have a (1), Space aliens travel to Earth to study the homeland of men - who previously conquered and controlled the universe and then disappeared - basic premise is the evil which is mankind - aggressive (1), but ultimately pointless. He is writing (1), A successful buffalo hunt (aka senseless slaughter) is righteously ruined by the collapse of the market for hides. The point of the book escapes me. Williams writes well and controls his prose adequately (1), I would read something else. (1), but the book lacks compelling characters or scenes or motivations. Boring is the word. Tedious. There are moments of insight but mainly the reader is overwhelmed with endless detail about meaningless things. If I were you (1), The English should have retaken Constantinople at the end of World War I - when they had the chance - they missed an opportunity to get even for anno domini 1453 - Limey weaklings - a fascinating place - the crossroads of Europe and Asia intersect. Mr. Pa (1), A-historical nonsense about the Apaches. Skip it. Read Eve Ball and Ängie Debo instead. (1), 000 Europeans were enslaved (1), Kersey points out all of the traditional traits and peccadilloes of American blacks. Amusing (1), All you need to know about the companies making firearms. (1), mainly because he has been told he is not supposed to write the things that he does. If you want to encourage the growth and vigor of an idea or a position - persecution is perfect. This is the side of the news not offered by our controlled (by whom?) med (1), mainly by Muslims in North and Northwest Africa (1), don't ask - never feel guilt for having survived - don't indulge emotion - avoid spiritual hypochondria - Gurkhas (Nepalese) - Cupid's measles - everyone had talked a good game - counselling for soldiers (1), rapes (female and male) (1), no desire to control e.g. the numbers racket or whores or politicians - just thuggery - hold-ups (1), murders - no profit motive (1), even - just base (1), "Good riddance to bad rubbish". When will they ever learn. And so it goes. (1), senseless crime - mother was a disinterested junkie whore - father was a disinterested abuser - society tried and tried and tried to work with him - but he always reverted and preferred and enjoyed abusing other people to even thinking about a jjjjob - he (1), no more needs to be said. (1), Young man seeks life - ends up in jail - meets interesting people with unusual skills - who become his mentors - he goes with it - thievery (1), Too much. Of everything. Vacuous indolence honed to nothingness. Hollow people depraved by prosperity unchastened by adversity. No check on immorality. This is madness. (1), Women are much better at erotica than are men. Less crass - more situational and thoughtful (1), and with some moral tension - this is the best bit of erotica I have been able to find - recommended. (1), Thug criminal sociopath who lacked any sense of morality or decency or loyalty. Stupid crime committed by feral people. No plan (1), burglary - a reader more learned and smarter than many of those around him on the road - experiences prison and torture - comes out smiling but wary - ultimately realizes the emptiness of the life - converts - one of those slice of life books well worth r (1), modern society: Detroit (1), Great information source about Arizona. (1), puhleese - reality rules. (1), Griffith v. Paret - Arguello v Escalera - Ali/Frazier and on and on - it is a don't miss read for the boxing afficiando - like me. (1), Combat veteran Fraser relates his experience in WW2 Burma campaign - criticizes politically correct babble about feelings and remorse and guilt for what was necessary at the time against a formidable and relentless Asian foe - unacceptable reality as bosh (1), Weakly contrived correspondence between Athenian Themistocles and Persian King Artaxerxes. Suffers from girlish inability to understand men (1), strength - just plain boring and not worth the precious time necessary to read it - especially with so many other tomes from which to choose. Save your time - select something else to read. (1), great fighs like Johannsen v. Patterson (1), Boxing history and insight by one of the sport's premier referees - Arthur Mercante - many a great anecdote about his time with the King of Thailand and Ali and the Vandeweghes and Cosell and about the great (1), no moral code (1), Hillary Clinton could not be any worse as a person and as a politician and as a candidate for the presidency. She has no soul (1), just a burning desire to be the first woman (and a fat ugly woman at that) to be the President - she is old and slow and lacks the vibrancy necessary to work with the cabal which actually controls America - the communist Jew Israeli Bernie Sanders will pr (1), many crimes and misdemeanors over the years as a person and as a facilitator for Billy and as a shill for the financial people who control the presidency and the world. The only worse person would be Trump or Sanders or Cruz or Rubio or anyone else you ca (1), like Yellen and Fishcer. It is time to get out of Dodge City. (1), The current crop of firearms highlighted and priced. (1), for your children (1), like Faulkner (1), Mr. Auster is one of those authors that critics love to love. It is difficult to know what the hell is going on in his stories and (1), there is always an undercurrent of the unknowable - or (1), stated another way (1), A window to the Jew literati and intelligentsia of New York (1), the reader quits giving a damn about 100 pages in - too much work - and to what end - no great truth is revealed - no startling discovery is made - mental onanism for the amusement of the literati. (1), their society. Mr. Reitz strained and suffered and starved for about 3 long years - all in an attempt to protect his homeland from the encroachment of the Rand Lords intent upon extracting the natural wealth of South Africa for the European Bankers - to n (1), their nation (1), You do not act independently like you think you do and your likes (1), and genius and Bradbury is at the top of the list of great SF writers. (1), and thoughts (1), and actions are devised and controlled by a select group of anonymous men acting in their own self interest. You are not classless and you are not clever - you are merely the product of what you allow yourself to be fed on a daily basis - you are manipula (1), Boer Second War with English 1899. Amazing what people will endure for what they really believe in - their god (1), goddamnit. (1), from about 1900 through 1945 (1), and music men. The Marx Brothers (1), foreign diplomats - every indication of veracity is present - he had no reason to lie - he had no reason to fear the use of what he was saying against him - he did not contemplate Nuremberg - one can argue that this is the best available insight into to t (1), he is among friends (1), No reason to read this book. Stick with his "Propaganda" which is far more illuminating and which explains exactly how we are all controlled by a small group of men dedicated strictly to their own interests. This book contains examples and techniques for (1), but with specific "how to" examples of the tenets of propaganda (which (1), with its soo smart and so hip writers (1), Decent. Interesting about the Kiva. (1), he is (until the later pages) winning the war (1), think about that - in prison for not accepting a particular version of events - as if there is and can be only one version of events) - despite the participation of many groups and identities in those events. Read the book. Think about it. Decide for your (1), Kauffman and Hart (1), the Gershwins (1), If interested in what Hitler really was (1), what he really thought (1), and whether he was really crazy (as opposed to being a product of his times) read this book. It is important to have access to information outside of the usual propaganda which is daily force fed via the Western Media. Keep in mind that people are in pris (1), whom he really hated (1), Bradbury the Wonderful. Science Fiction between 1935 and 1970 was unsurpassed in its innovation (1), and search and read and learn. The Internet is the answer - use it and walk toward the light. Read Carol Quiggley - now (1), This was a bit too much about kicking the shit out of people (1), Startling look at bases of marketing products and conclusion that America is first and foremost an adolescent society. (1), really injuring them terribly (1), for good reasons like they wanted to get into a nightclub but Mr. Thompson didn't want them to enter - so (1), it was sufficient cause to maim and incapacitate them - when we were 18 to 25 this was cool - but no mas - Mssrs. Smith and Wesson would be a good antidote for the likes of Geoff Thompson. Didn't finish it - quit about 100 pages in. It would be fascinatin (1), that being the case (1), Valuable resourçe material for the boxing fan. Keep by the bedside. (1), Stories about ticketless train riders - hobos. Wounded people shirk responsibility - write childish poetry and pen trite songs - no children - outliers without purpose - soylent green candidates. (1), the Silver Dome sold for $500 (1), irrecoverable (1), 000!!! - nothing to do but to flee. (1), Nothing new here although the author compiles and presents information in an orderly fashion. Sequere pecunium et qui bono - the first (perhaps the only) rule of history in Europe and the Americas since around A.D. 1750 or so. Interesting how little is sa (1), A poorly written and disjointed book about one of the premier pugilists of all time - Harry Greb - from that period of time when men were men - and Harry Greb was a man amongst men - an 160 pounder who regularly fought guys who weighed 185 pounds or more (1), and control the various reserve banks who are highlighted in the book as if they had any independence whatsoever from their banker owners. A better book is Eustaçe Mullins' "The Federal Reserve Conspiracy' - not afraid of the bankers like Ahamed.. (1), both trained and able to defend themselves. Prediction: Greb kayos Thompson in round one. (1), A lifeless rendition of the career of a talented man. (1), We never learn. Nothing ever changes. Time and again we are stampeded into war by those who profit from the experience. Our young are murdered and maimed so companies can increase their profits by 100% to 1000%. Smedley Butler was a real man - a decorated (1), and as free citizens of a nation of your creation. Act or die. (1), Know this one truth. There is a cabal of bankers and business men who control the creation of and the use of money - all money in the Western world. Money is all that ultimately matters. Janet Yellen and Stanley Fischer are more powerful than the figure-h (1), and parliaments as necessary. It matters not to them because they use them all in their quest for total control. They care not about right and wrong - only success or failure. Wake the hell up. Turn off your TV (1), shun Hollywood movies (1), burn the New York Times (1), as a nation (1), cease to exist as a people (1), but who use it to share in your propserity. There is one immutable rule of life - competition. Either you fight for your country (1), White people wake up. War of the most insidious type is being waged against you by your own representatives. Principles and precepts created only by you are employed against you by people who despise your ethos (1), we can't all just be friends as long as these foreign elements actively and relentlessly play us off against one another - wake American people - wake up right now. Mr. Oshinsky is a Jew as iare or was Foner (1), for your god and your principles (1), within 50 years (1), or you will be replaced. No non-white country on earth preaches or practices diversity. That is pablum for you passive white people. Do something. Do something now or you will (1), South Africa - never their fault - never assailed for their complete immorality - we despair at the thought of having to care for them forever - no sign of progress - no likelihood of success - Detroit (1), effortlessly - there are not many writers like James Joyce - he is one of a kind. Mr. Joyce was Irish and a Roman Catholic. (1), A good book (1), Richmond Flowers (1), look in the mirror (1), commentators (1), See my delightful and insightful review. (1), exaggerate (1), entitled (1), Heywood Broun (1), Zinn (1), John Quincy Adams (1), Sr. (1), William Seward (1), by the way (1), prime ministers (1), raconteurs (1), as christians (1), 000 years ago. The NY Times would hate his guts (1), Mexico is corruption - corruption at every level within every department practiced by every politician and enforced by every police and military agency - a good people victimized by their rulers' moral insolvency. (1), vilify him (1), dedicated to following orders to the very end - murderer (1), but I could not finish it - I already know the story from "The Last Emperor" - knowing the story and its conclusion makes one less eager to plow through 500 pages - still (1), and run his ass out of town. There is nothing new under the sun. Modern Americans should reflect on their pompous and arrogant notions of newly discovered truth - there is no such thing - there is only truth and well fed people who lose sight of that whic (1), the word that best describes (1), Mexican politics since Vicente Fox and the influence of the Cartels. The key word for (1), operate (1), Most definitely read it. Think about it. Decide for yourself. (1), would you (1), Kertzer (1), then there is Trayvon and the "white Hispanic" and hysteria ensues - hmmmmn - who is behind that? I wonder. (1), Black America attacks White (and Asian) America. The MSM sits silently uninterested - but (1), actors (1), me (1), tiresome (1), finance (1), etc. (1), Montgomery (1), demise (1), Haiti (1), myself (1), feminist (1), woman (1), science (1), violence (1), 2 (1), kings (1), art (1), colleagues (1), legality (1), William Wilberforce (1), burglaries (1), socialists (1), Jefferson County (1), St. Louis (1), Cassius Marcellus Clay (1), Eugene O'Neill (1), John Brown (1), I think (1), Baltimore (1), so sad (1), Dorothy Parker (1), creations (1), comedians (1), I read the first 200 pages and Pu Yi was a special man - who lived the most interesting life of any person in the twentieth century. (1), The quintessential German soldier - dedicated to the war - seemingly unaffected and unmoved by the senseless slaughter of his comrades - never questioning of the purpose or the ends sought - jaunty in his presentation - less emotional than Sassoon or Grav (1), who is that (1), crybaby who is and will remain alone in the world. No one gives a shit if she wants to be alone - go - get thee gone - because your value to society (I know (1), those are people other than you (1), you've probably heard of them) is minimal or nil - sit home (1), Hypnosis is not difficult to learn. Just practice (1), and use your steely dan - even if he doesn't agree with you all he'll ever say is mmmmmmm. The joy! (1), Kate Chopin covered all of this many years ago in a more literate and thoughtful way. Hey Bolick (1), Short Stories by Hammett. Mr. Hammett was an American and a Roman Catholic. (1), a rich/poor issue - Vernon Jordan - Oprah - Tiger Woods - Magic Johnson - Dr. Dre are doing just fine (1), and always will be (1), Harriet Beecher Stowe - Henry David Thoreau (1), - its not like members of Mr. Oshinsky's group were not involved in the Atlantic slave trade when it was lucrative - what about the 30 (1), thank you - whatever happened in 1875 (and we all already know that it was very bad for black people) - this country has for the last 50 years done everything in its power - and spent prodigious amounts of its wealth - to rectify the consequences of past (1), 000 confederate prisoners who died in Yankee prisons during the Civil War - look (1), practice. It is a simple matter of the voice within your head (which one (1), you might ask) suggesting that e.g. your arm is made of steel (1), way more effective with thousands of murders to its [dis]credit. The world is a battlefield only because of this group of cretins. The USA is the most murderous government on Earth and has been for many years. Immediate indictments for the first degree mu (1), you should try it. (1), its presentation. Go Koestler. Mr. Koestler was a Jew. (1), war - never matched since by any people. Mr. Bartlettt is a Canadian. (1), they underscore (1), Racism Be Bad for Everybody. (1), no big deal (1), right? It is an interesting force of nature. This book taught me how to self-hypnotize (1), that it is rigid (1), that it is unbendable (1), and after a while it becomes (1), true? - anyway (1), if you really want to (1), you cannot bend your arm although you know you can bend your arm (1), always has been (1), it is still (1), etc. are all war criminals - We should immediately reconvene Nuremberg and get down to business - The new Murder (1), Bush - Obama - Cheney - H. Clinton - Rumsfeld - Kerry - S. Rice - McCraven and McChyrstal (1), A beautiful book by an obviously thoughtful and caring white man about the life (1), and death of a thoughtful and caring young black man. What a sad and wasted life. Is anyone other than Rob Peace to blame? Probably not.
