5.0 out of 5 stars Don't wait until the next radiation leak, December 8, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Since the potassium iodide (KI) shortage after the Fukushima Dai-ichi radiation leak in March, I wanted to buy while the supply is available and the price is reasonable. The information about KI provided by the packaging, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission includes the facts about the recommended daily dosages and the shelf life of the KI tablets. This bottle of 240 tablets provides enough KI for six 10-day courses.

5.0 out of 5 stars A prepper guide for the rest of us, December 8, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bernie Carr's Prepper's Pocket Guide is the guide for those of us who don't own a buried survival bunker on some isolated rural land. Urban- or even suburban-dwellers will find the kind of advice that fits the non-traditional prepper. From how-to instructions and to-do lists to suggested web sites and conversion charts, the book is a quick reference of the world of prepping. Sure, much of the same information is available online and elsewhere, but I like its ability to cut through the extreme and arcane, and supply the basics of this important movement in disaster and home planning.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice addition to any scriptural library, December 8, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Cambridge University Press KJV Apocrypha completes anyone's KJV Bible which no longer include the apocryphal books that were part of the 1611 Bible. A physical match to the CUP Pitt Brevier Edition Bible, the single-volume library-bound book is typeset, printed and bound to complement most Bibles. The only questionable aspect of the book is its "Paper from responsible sources." Really? My CUP Pitt Minion KJV Bible enjoys 100-percent India paper while the Apocrypha book sports paper made from recycled newspapers and cereal boxes. Otherwise, an important and enjoyable addition to any scriptural library.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good until Cobra builds a better hand-held radio, December 6, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was actually hoping to buy a base-unit CB radio, but the few available models cost more (about $300) than I was willing to pay or required an equally costly power conversion of a mobile unit. So, I was limited to the few available hand-held units. Unfortunately, the affordable costs of the units (about $30-70) are reflected in their drawbacks in quality and range. I would have gladly paid about $150 for a base or hand-held unit which shared better cost and fewer features than most base units, and better quality than most hand-held units. All that said, I am not unimpressed with the Cobra HH 38 WX ST unit. Its size and adaptability with three antennas and various DC-power sources (NiCD and NiMH rechargeable batteries, and motor-vehicle 12V batteries) are an advantage in my suburban environment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes aim at Democrats and Republicans alike, April 7, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
With "63 Documents the Government Doesn't Want You to Read," former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura takes critical aim at both Democrats and Republicans who have lied, cheated and stolen their way to almost complete control of the United States and much of the world. His use of actual declassified governmental records to prove his point weaves an undoubted web of deceit at our nation's highest levels. While many of the documents aren't new to individuals who have done their own research, Ventura successfully brings the documents together and uses them to create an indictment of the people and groups who are routinely left as the only ones smiling after wars, assassinations and failed economies. Instead of holding his cards close to the vest, Ventura encourages his readers to do their own research and gives them the tools to do so. His newest book is a fascinating game of connecting the dots to show the true face of world leaders.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the price, December 21, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Because the camera was shipped by the seller instead of Amazon.com, it is important to note that it arrived complete and on time by U.S. Postal Service. The camera included the pen, a USB extension cable, an AC/DC power-supply recharger and instructions.

The pen hardware is attractive and functional, but shows two disadvantages: The threaded fastener that is used to connect the two parts of the pen appears to be a lightweight metal or plastic, so care should be taken when connecting and disconnecting the fastener. The power-button cap is loosely integrated with the button and causes a distracting rattle during the audio playback when the pen is hand-held, so care should by taken to secure the pen in a pocket or other stable location.

The English translation of the instructions is almost illiterate. Some thorough reading and intuition should help most users learn how to operate the camera. Connecting the USB plug to most USB receptacles is all that is needed to prepare for audio and video playback. Most computer audio and video software should recognize and playback the recorded files without problems.

The audio and video quality is the camera's best feature. The audio is clear and records a whisper. The video is clear when the camera is stable and, despite the instructions claiming a focal minimum of 20-inches, is focused at two inches to infinity.

All in all, I am pleased with the camera. While other reviewers have complained about performance failures after just three uses, I have used the camera several times without problems -- after mastering the power button subtleties (press once to turn on; press and hold to turn off). I suspect electronics can be fickle and recommend thorough testing during the camera's three-month warranty.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Democrat agrees with Michael Savage's "Trickle Up Poverty", October 8, 2010
I am a gay, gun-owning, award-winning libertarian Democrat. I admit these qualifiers only to show that the appeal of "Trickle Up Poverty" by Michael Savage isn't limited to political conservatives. The growing constitutional libertarian movement that both Blue Dog Democrats and Tea Party Republicans understand is larger than political parties, and the parties are just beginning to learn this. Savage has known and advocated this truth for years. The evidence he offers in the book's footnotes comes from mainstream and alternative sources; liberals and conservatives, daily newspapers and scholarly books, alternative broadcasters and grassroots groups. By citing the words of a nation to prove his own opinions, Savage dares his opponents to do a minimum of fact checking and learn. This book will be a reference source for many years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Black Ribbons" is today's "The Wall", March 18, 2010
The epitome of concept albums is "The Wall" by Pink Floyd. Shooter Jennings, Stephen King and Hierophant update that standard with "Black Ribbons," a creepy combination of music and the spoken word which is as much an homage to Floyd, Led Zepplin and Marilyn Manson as it is an opinion about current events with government authority run amok. This compact disc sees the anti-New World Order opinions of popular musicians like Muse, and ups the ante. "Another Brick In the Wall" has grown up and become "Wake Up!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Error-free KJV and a pleasing format, December 15, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I chose this Cambridge University Press Pitt Minion Edition of the King James Authorized Version Bible primarily because it enjoys uniquely a text which is as close to the 1611 edition and error-free as is currently published. I enjoy the extra benefits of this edition including its page size (6.875-inches x 4.625-inches), its clean design and typography (6.25-point semibold Times on 6.50-leading), its Smyth-sewn burgundy French Morocco leather binding (7.25-inches x 5-inches x 0.75-inches) which allows it to lay flat while open, and its superior hemp and rag fiber-blend India paper. While this edition includes a presentation page, a title page, the Epistle Dedicatory, a table of contents, a center-column cross reference and the whole KJV, it is remarkably personal in size. Freed from the clutter of in-line pronunciations and footnotes that plagues so many text-only Bibles today, this edition reads more like a popular book, and less like a textbook. If you want simply to read and enjoy the Bible, this is the edition for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bits and pieces from Brown's other books, September 20, 2009
This review is from: The Lost Symbol (Hardcover)
Like so many others, I hoped that this would be another fantastic episode in the life of Robert Langdon. It wasn't. The most distressing part of the book is that, unlike his previous books, Brown presented virtually no history or mythology about his chosen subject (Freemasonry and the United States) except occasional minutiae and Internet-search trivia matched with his paternal narrative warnings not to judge the Freemasons and their past. Whose wandering opinions was Brown trying to nanny back into check, ours or his? His pro-Freemasonic lecturing got tedious to the point of insulting. Don't look for anything but the most vague connection between Freemasonry and the Morgan Affair, the Mormon Church, Albert Pike and his connection to Confederate secret societies, or even the obvious, the Founders. This book becomes Brown's most violent yet. Apparently he forgot how to write suspense and action into a scene without resorting to Ripperological detail. Finally, all but the last 100 pages are reminiscent of Keystone Cops antics. Chasing, racing, stumbling, dark streets and confusion -- all without the usual Langdon expertise to explain it. Brown's lead character seems just as befuddled with his new mysteries and he is. Meanwhile, the audience of readers resort to thinking for both gentlemen and silently scream "Don't go in there!" as well as "Don't write that!" The predictability of the book's plot is its undoing. Void of any nuance between good and evil, simple and complex, or even fact and fiction, the readers are left to fend for themselves in a meaningless carnival of violence and moral lecturing. A more satisfying and sensible adventure would be to re-read an earlier Brown book and mentally substitute "Freemason" for every reference to "Priory" and "Illimunati."
