4.0 out of 5 stars A superb device for specific purposes, March 11, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This wine chiller stick is inappropriate for white wine. It just won't get it cold enough. However, it works splendidly on a Rose---or a red requiring a bit of a chill. A wine connoisseur normally purchases a number of devices for particular occasions. The stick takes up little room in one's freezer. A quick water rinse is all that's required. I see no reason whatsoever to use soap or put the device thorough the dishwasher. This item is a worthy addition. It earns four stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb thorough look at the Vatican finances, February 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Gerald and Trish Posner have written an exhaustive study of the Vatican's financial dealing over the centuries. One can only hope it results in many discussions and debates. I have not finished the book---but have read enough to unhesitatingly give it five stars. In about two weeks, I will have more to say.


Birchism Was My Business
Birchism Was My Business
by Gerald Schomp
Edition: Hardcover
25 used & new from $1.93

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunningly important book: a first hand account of the John Birch Society, January 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Gerald Schomp was hired by the John Birch Society to be a top field employee. He reveals the craziness of the organization. The Birchers were incredibly powerful during a crucial time in American politics. Their direct heirs and fellow travelers still remain with us to the present moment---and continue to cause grave harm. Founder Robert Welch was a deceitful man and reminds one of Ron L. Hubbard of the Scientology movement. I consider this book indispensable for both amateur and professional historians. You must obtain a copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Women are not always kind and wonderful, January 12, 2015
Women are supposedly the gentler sex. Always warm and loving---especially towards the weak and helpless. Wendy Lower provides overwhelming evidence that Nazi women defied this comforting fantasy. They were often cold blooded killers. No mercy was not given to those deemed racially inferior. This book is not easy reading. So what? Only truth will save us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Detroit has effectively been destroyed, December 24, 2014
Paul Kersey is a very careful writer. He does not exaggerate. The situation in Detroit is hopeless. The author thoroughly deals with the city's collapse. Politically correct whites meant well---but their sappy sentimentalism has brought this once great metropolitan area down to its knees. It behooves you to read all of Kersey's books. They are far more insightful than typical academic offerings.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am very pleased with this product---it is truly amazing, September 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I used it as a trimmer and edger soon after it was delivered. It kicked butt---and took no prisoners. I needed to do some serious work, and the job was completed in a relatively short period of time. Moreover, very little twine was needed. I will use it as a mower perhaps as early as tomorrow. This product has already proven its worth. It easily earns five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars The principle of taquia is readily embraced by Muslim extremists, September 21, 2014
This review is from: FBI: Suburban Surveillance (DVD)
Islamic extremists don't hesitate to lie. They embrace Taquia, the principle allowing them to lie to non-Muslims---and even the less fanatical members of their religion on behalf of violent Jihad. This 45 minute documentary reals a number of real life cases involving terrorists living in America attempting to deceive their neighbors and naive associates. Thankfully, the FBI and prosecutors were able to convince juries to convict these monsters. We are in an existential war to the death with fanatical Islam. It will not end anytime in the near future.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best documentaries I've ever seen, July 22, 2014
A truly great man. His self sacrifices for the Ukraine deserve recognition and honor. This documentary is well worth your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars This lotion is utterly fantastic!, July 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am stunned by the effectiveness of DERMagic Feline Skin Rescue Lotion. It's far surpasses even my most optimistic hopes. I do not care whether some of the lotion gets on the covered upholstery. That's a small price to pay. The cats are much more important. Some have also complained about the smell. Not really a big deal. It disappears in a short while. I have used this lotion on two cats---and the results are utterly fantastic. Please don't worry that your hands will get messy. You can clean them after completing the task.

5.0 out of 5 stars L. Brent Bozell caused enormous damage during his lifetime, June 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Daniel Kelly's biography pulls no punches. L. Brent Bozell is depicted as a man virtually doomed to fail. If nothing else, he suffered from a manic depressive psychiatric illness. The conservative activist was unable to comprehend that the GOP is the only game in town---whether one likes it or not. Ignoring this harsh reality resulted in his engaging in constant reckless and destructive behavior. He even fantasized that a national third party could be a viable option. Bozell's intellectually schizophrenic approach to politics left him powerless to accomplish any of his major goals. He also seemed to eventually embrace the peculiar notion that Catholic religious zealotry could almost alone be sufficient to reform the country. Practical considerations were pushed to the side. The author also more than hints Bozell was envious of his far more famous brother-in-law, William F. Buckley. This could very explain much of his deeply flawed thinking and actions. Alas, the damage has been done. We must somehow undo the incredible harm.
