"Courage is better than a faint heart for any man who sticks his nose out of doors.
The length of my life and the day of my death were fated long ago."
Norse saying, quoted from The Norse Myths -- Gods of the Vikings, by Kevin Crossley-Holland.
"The 'New World Order' is really a very old world order -- that of the Babylonian empire --
the emperor decrees and the people Obey".
"What is money? -- money represents power over someone else's labour. When a central
bank prints billions in a 'bailout', they are giving themselves power over the labour of millions of people".
"Political correctness means to prefer convenient lies to truth. Freedom and Justice cannot endure when
untruth is valued more highly than truth."

The Red River Floodway -- How It Works, a storybook in pictures.
"Kill Zone -- A Sniper Looks at Dealey Plaza", by Craig Roberts.
Ever wonder who was behind the JFK assassination? Read Craig Roberts "Kill Zone". Roberts was a sniper
in Vietnam. When he visited the JFK assassination site, and looked out the window of the warehouse from which
Oswald is supposed to have shot, he knew instantly that the official story was a physical impossibility.
No sniper could have made those shots. This started him on an investigation for the truth.
"The Mission of Joan of Arc", by Joan Edmunds.
The inspiring and heart-rending story of the Maid of Orleans, the 19 year old girl
who saved France from the English
invasion. Based on the transcripts of her trial and of her
"America's Financial Apocalypse",
by Mike Stathis.
Published in 2006. Stathis is the only financial analyst to
correctly foresee the mortgage crisis and financial collapse. This book
contains penetrating insights into the current state of the US economy and
where it's headed.
Read about the dollar-oil link, the looming health-care and pension crisis,
the disaster of "free-trade". Mike Stathis is the managing principal of
Apex Venture Advisors.
"The Black Arrow", by Robert Louis Stevenson.
A great adventure story, set in the days of the Wars of the Roses.
Probably Stevenson's best.
"The Norse Myths -- Gods of the Vikings", by Kevin Crossley-Holland.
A retelling of the Norse myths in modern English. The adventures of the Norse Gods.
Great stories about Odin, Thor, Loki, and all the others.
"The Facts of Life -- Shattering the Myth of Darwinism", by Richard Milton.
Heresy of heresies -- someone who opposes the Darwinian model of evolution on scientific
grounds. Milton is a non-creationist who finds Darwinism completely inadequate
to explain evolution.
The facts of life are that "Nature does not work by trial
and error". The non-existence of transitional types shows that "Nature goes unerringly to her target". Darwinism is a theory that is too small to fit the facts. A very thought-provoking, well researched book.
