4.0 out of 5 stars Good deal for an "anti-PC", May 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very nice, a few misses. I ordered mine, had to wait about 5 weeks for it, plugged it in, turned it on, "missing or corrupted operating system". (Sigh) Minus one star Acer, where's your QC? Okay, at least Amazon makes returning it painless, so that is what I did. Got my 2nd one and so far it has been fine. A bit of a transition as I am used to doing many things offline as I have a metered (6 GB per month) online account at home. I like the look and feel, I do ramp up some webpages to 125-150% for easier reading. Videos look good as is. I have been taking it to my local library and using their Wi-Fi as I like this better than the PCs they have on site. One minus I find is the lack of "page down" "page up" and "home" buttons as I read many blogs and news sites where I scroll long pages. Wish I could reprogram the "back" and "forward" arrows for that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nonsense!, July 26, 2014
James Brown, Common Cause, George Soros. Need I say more? James Browning is the Regional Director of State Operations for Common Cause, a left-wing group that liberal billionaire George Soros gave more than $3 million to since 2000. Browning co-wrote an anti-fracking report called “Deep Drilling, Deep Pockets,” for Common Cause. The left rabidly hates oil/coal/nuclear/hydroelectric. They would have us (us, the dirty masses, not them, they are smarter than us, after all) all living in caves and eating bark and grass, no fire allowed, thank you.

So, clearly, this book is merely propaganda.

See Julia A. Seymour over at NewsBusters for more on Browning.

1.0 out of 5 stars The writings of a crazy person, June 18, 2014
This review is from: A Fighting Chance (Hardcover)
In my world, the world of reality, one can't claim that, because one has prominent cheekbones one is part Native American. That is a claim that Elizabeth Warren has made, and it is no more sane than claiming one is Napoleon or Jesus Christ. Years ago, this person would have been confined to a mental hospital and treated, but nowadays, persons with these types of delusions are elevated by the Democratic Party to positions of power.

Really. Think about that. This woman claims to be part Native American because of a remark about her cheekbones. Sickening.

Good stuff. I prefer the Panda brand, but I am not a snob about it. This brand has artificial ingredients, so use your own judgement.

1.0 out of 5 stars Full of errors, May 24, 2014
Piketty's tome is based on false data. See a critique here written by Chris Giles at the Financial Times: [...]

In order to solve "inequality" Piketty would have us all "equally" miserable, like the citizens of North Korea.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great, February 26, 2014

These are good, but not a strong licorice flavor. I prefer the Amish licorice I can get locally or the Panda I can get online or at some local stores.

Very good, similar to Slim Jims, but a bit less greasy. I will most likely purchase these in the future.

I am enjoying these, tart and sweet at the same time. I ordered a large selection and have hidden the bags around my home so I won't just eat them all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not to my liking, February 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are just okay, in my opinion, not terrible, but not to my taste. They have the aroma of spam and taste kinda like the dog meat you can get from street corner vendors in many Asian countries. they are, though, very tender and easy to chew, unlike the aforementioned dog meat. I prefer a beefier taste, so I will not purchase this product again. I will add that the "Subscribe & Save" feature is very nice and enables you to save a good deal of money when buying a number of products at once.
