Democrats Are so Dumb: They Probably Think This...

Democrats are so dumb they think it's cool to have a jackass for their party symbol. The association goes back to the election of 1828. Andrew Jackson's opponents started calling him Jackass Jackson as a term of derision. The story is the old general took a shine to the name and started printing up posters with a picture of a jackass next to his name. Over the years the symbol just sort of stuck. Sometime in the 1870s humorist Thomas Nast created a cartoon for Harper's Weekly that portrayed the Democratic jackass and the newly created Republican elephant. Ever since then they've been the party mascots. Pretty appropriate if you think about it, one is an ass, and the other one drops a really big load. Politics 101. All it takes is an ass and a really big load of shit. Put the two together and you've got a politician. This book is a snarky, somewhat twisted look at politics. Along the way, you'll meet Obama, Clinton, and Biden. Even though it's a book about democrats we're going to do a little Bush bashing - father and son. If you dislike Democrats this may be the book for you. If you dislike politics in general, this may be the book for you. I'm a political agnostic. I've got no love for Democrats, Republicans, or the Tea Party. And, yes, that irreverence shows throughout the book. If you're fed up with politics, politicians, and all of their BS - Read this book, and register a vote for sanity. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dave Wright.

During his 29th year, spending just $19,420.68, less than it would have cost him to stay at home, Adam Shepard visited seventeen countries on four continents and lived some amazing adventures. "It's interesting to me," he says, "that in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Europe, it's normal for people to pack a bag, buy a plane ticket, and get 'Out There.' In the U.S., though, we live with this very stiff paradigm: graduate college, work, find a spouse, make babies, work some more, retire, which can be a great existence, but leaves little room to load up a backpack and dip into various cultures, to see places, to really develop our own identity." Shepard's journey began in "the other Antigua" - Antigua, Guatemala - where he spent a month brushing up on his Spanish and traveling on the "chicken bus." During his two months in Honduras, he worked with an organization that helps improve the lives of poor children; in Nicaragua, he dug wells to install pumps for clean water and then stepped into the ring to face a savage bull; in Thailand, he rode an elephant and cut his hair into a mullet; in Australia, he hugged a koala, contemplated the present-day treatment of the Aborigines, and mustered cattle; in Poland, he visited Auschwitz; in Slovakia, he bungee jumped off a bridge; and in the Philippines, he went wakeboarding among Boracay's craggy inlets and then made love to Ivana on the second most beautiful beach in the world. His yearlong journey, which took two years to save for, was a spirited blend of leisure, volunteerism, and enrichment. He read 71 books, including ten classics and one - slowly - in Spanish. "If you can lend a hand to someone, educate yourself about the world, and sandwich that around extraordinary moments that get your blood pumping, that's a pretty full year," Shepard writes. Can everybody take a year to get missing? "Maybe, maybe not," he says, "though that's not really the point. I'm just concerned that 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Shepard.

Dreams of Quivira

'There are whole lifetimes in these magical stories, laced with secrets and surprises and dreams and disappointments and humor. Like Gish's characters, most of us seek our salvation mostly in the wrong places, sometimes stumbling upon truth where we should have looked for it first -- in our hearts and in the search itself. Read these stories. They will help you find your way'. (Tom Auer, Publisher, The Bloomsbury Review) 'Dreams of Quivira is written with honesty and a load of talent. There is a depth of characters here that we seldom find in short stories. Each story rings with haunting truth, some pain, and a redeeming message. A welcome addition of Gish's work'. (Review: Rudolfo Anaya) Robert Gish's eight stories of the old and new West speak of the search for a region of the mind and heart, as much as for the places in which his characters act out their personal dramas. For some the West remains a place of renewal and hope, like Coronado's Quivira, promising escape from wrong starts and thwarted desires and offering the possibility of transformation. For others it is the graveyard of expectations, where harsh truths and unwelcome realities must be faced. Two stories deal with the transformations and disappointments of young men caught between their own needs for adventure and the demands of their families and communities. 'The Quick and the Dead' tells of a first close encounter with death and spiritual transcendence. 'Seeing the Elephant' is an exuberant coming-of-age story that explores the interplay between Hispanic and Anglo culture, between the masculine and the feminine, between innocence and experience. Other stories look into darker regions of the human heart. Writtenin a lyrical yet earthy style that reflects the dreams and ideals of his characters, Gish's stories probe the mysteries at the heart of human relationships.
