Some Generals need an extra chest so they can wear all their medals.
WW2 was a war between Germany and Russia who eventually won it. Europe was in the war because Germany needed their resources. The rest were in the war because they couldn't mind their own business. Young men went to war because they wanted the excitement of visiting Paris and going to the Follies Bergere and the Moulin Rouge. Now you don't need to read a book about the reasons for the start of the Second World War.
Yesterday was garbage day and I noticed that my neighbor across the street had thrown out an electric generator. So I skipped over to have a look at it. Of course it looked rough. The owner came out and told me its problems which didn't interest me. I told him I would put it on Kijiji and sell it for $20.00. He helped me drag it over to my place. Quite heavy. I put it up for sale and an hour later a guy put a hold on it and said he would be here the first thing in the morning. He was here at 7:40 and off it went. I am going to give $10.00 to my neighbor. I don't like seeing stuff like that being thrown out. Someone might be able to fix it or use it for parts.
I can't understand why people doing a review have to do a summary. You can find that on the back of the book. Probably it's to make the review appear longer. In a lot of reviews that I have read I have noticed that the actual review might be only one or two sentences. If so, let the review be one or two sentences. It's a waste of time reading the synopsis over and over. A rant, after reading the reviews of all seven books.
They are doing away with all forms of decadence, movie stars, pop stars and some billionaires have disappeared. They have already started closing down factories. And of course they sent us the virus which has yet to come to full bloom.
Our political leaders are really dumb and our Captains of industry are so greedy. The factories are all gone and they can't be built overnight. We can't build a darn thing.
Saw a film yesterday telling us that the U.S. government is offering farmers 1 1/2 times the value of their crops if they destroy them. If they don't, they won't be getting subsidy payments next year. Trying to create a food shortage? Somebody has sold out to somebody.
The NEWS broadcasters spend most of the TV hours talking about the virus. Telling us every possible combination of patients, one province after the other, hours and hours, determined to scare the shit out of us. Except for forest fires or floods, you don't know one other thing that is going on. Riots in France, protests in England and don't even think about Australia. We are all in deep shit and you are to blame.
The strange thing is that this was my last day at work before my vacation. The next morning I was flying out to Florida to visit my son. I would be at Newark airport at 09:30. A day earlier and I would have seen the attack. Can you just imagine me among the hundreds trying to rent a car.
Rothschild: 'New World Order' will be in place by 2018
When the murders solve themselves, the story, awash with political incorrectness, reverts back to the three couples and the inevitable happy ending.
This book is written as the last of the Bond series and it was a good endeavor. We are told his weak points, his strong points, that he does not have a heart of stone and can shed tears. Although there are other Bond stories, they will not move his life and career further on.
It was a bit difficult at first, getting used to the names and places but one gets used to it. When the story started out with a new detective, I thought the last one was finished. It wasn't until I finished the story and read some of the reviews, did I find out that the books are not in sequence. The story did take a leap forward, omitting a few years of the main character's life.
There are two story lines going at the same time and I was unable to put them together till near the end, intentionally written that way. The main character is weak, easily taking offence at any small remark to the point that it overwhelms him.
“Earp was the man who had actually done the things in his life that I was trying to do in a movie. I imitated his walk; I imitated his talk” – said the famous actor John Wayne.
Of course I remember this incident from the NEWS of the time but reading an account of it gives it a different perspective. If you are expecting something like a Rambo rescue, you will be disappointed. The main theme of the book is the negotiations involved to get the men out of prison which was a hard road to travel. When that was finally accomplished by other means, the problem was to get them out of the country.
The book is an adventure story, written by a great storyteller, problems arise and are solved. All are heroes (after all, they are Americans), strength overcomes all weaknesses and we even have a happy ending. There are things you have to take with a grain of salt but you still have to admire Ross Perot.
In this riding we got the same guy back. A Liberal, formally a school monitor/actor. He didn't do anything for the last 8 years while his party was in power, so we definitely don't have to worry about the next 4 with his party out of power. There is a good point about him being re-elected. We save money. We don't have to pay his pension yet. So that is money saved for the next 4 years.
We really didn't have anyone to vote for. The others running against him were worse. I don't think we voted in any strippers or drug dealers.
“In the future it will be about finding a way to reduce the population. We will start with the old, because as soon as he is over 60-65 years of age, man lives longer than he produces and costs society dearly. Then the weak and then the useless who do nothing for society because there will be more and more of them, and especially finally the stupid ones.
When I started this book, I thought it would be a modern western. It had a murder, a Texas Ranger
but it soon morphed into a union problem at a Texas refinery. Soon, the murder and the Ranger
fell into the background and the story became an arbitration hearing with union employees.
The story had a good lead in and the descriptions were good but the author had trouble finding
names for his characters, falling back on celebrities' like Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and others.
The arbitration went in circles, no one was charged with the murder, a black man by the name of
Billy Graham, by the way. Being a black man might have had something to do with it.
