At first glance, this book looks like a part of the “For Dummies” series. (You know, Computers for Dummies, Cooking for Dummies, Nuclear Physics for Dummies, etc). The cover graphics show a mask (made in China) and the logo of a winking pig. Near the mask is this quote: “When this virus is over, I still want some of you to stay away from me”, a sentiment to which I instantly relate. Then I discovered that this “Politically Incorrect Guide” is actually one book in a series of some 30 odd books dealing with everything from American History, to Women and Feminism.   Read the rest of this entry »

The Ghost Ship of Brooklyn  -  An Untold Story of the American Revolution

The Ghost Ship of Brooklyn is a fascinating narrative of a surprisingly obscure chapter in the history of the American Revolution.    The author tells the story largely from the accounts of 5 separate prisoners of war who were held on the HMS Jersey, a British Warship that was gutted (‘hulked’ was the term used in the book).    As many as 15 smaller British ships, were also hulked and along with the Jersey, served as floating prisons.    Over the 7 years between 1776 and 1783, these ships served in this despicable capacity and were moored at Wallabout Bay on the East River in Brooklyn.    Read the rest of this entry »

Apparently, I Am A Racist

I have long been fighting the characterization. But now I realize that it is actually racist not to judge someone not on his actions, but on what race he was. Apparently, I was confused.   Read the rest of this entry »

Lost Sheep

To all the mindless sheeple who traipse around self-righteous and self-glorified, eager to embrace the next perversion d’ jour? To the ones who “care” Eric has only one non-accepting thing to say.   Read the rest of this entry »

Real Hope and Change …

Something much bigger is going on in America and God knows what it is. Our hope for change was derailed on November 6th. But our hope has to be in something bigger than politics. We are in trouble. And the answer is not going to be Romney, anymore than the problem is Obama.   Read the rest of this entry »

Making My Day Again …

After Clint Eastwood gave his performance, the media reacted just like the Wicked Witch in the Wizard of Oz. They melted into screams of bitter, ugly resentment. They called Eastwood senile, racist, inappropriate, out of his depth, and those were just the nice comments! It might all have passed into obscurity. We were heading into Labor Day weekend and it was likely to be a footnote and nothing more. It’s hard to compete with a 3 day weekend. Maybe just let it go and clear the decks before the DNC convention this week? But no.   Read the rest of this entry »
