I'm reading "Did Jesus Exist? The Historical Argument for Jesus of Nazareth" by Bart Ehrman.  Just a few chapters in, don't know what to make of it yet.  Won't comment until the end.

Just finished The Destroyer's book. I have to admit I was a little disappointed. Too much of life outside of the ring and not enough about his wrestling career and inside the ring for me. I think the author having little knowledge of pro wrestling didn't help.

Just finished this book. I am a little disappointed too. This comes off more of a man who wrestled, rather than about a wrestler. I like that he walks that fine line and doesn't say wrestling was real or a work.

I think the time for this site to have newer books available for free download is coming to a close. Many entries for recent books now show "Link taken down by rightful owner" or some such.

Eventually it will probably be left with public domain stuff a la archive.org or with links to books that people want to share.

So if you are looking for something in particular, do it soon.

Los of stuff goes up for a day and then gets pulled, so checking often is a good thing.

I just finished the 3rd TPB of The Walking Dead and started the 4th. Great stuff and so different from the TV show.

I bet that's an interesting book.  I don't care for Buchanan's views most of the time and am certainly glad his run for president failed but, I respect the passion.  He was great on the McLoughlin Group that was on PBS.
Buchanan is a great pundit that I will admit, but as a serious Presidential candidate, no way should he ever run

I'd give my right arm to have him president.

Of course you would.

Boy, it would truly suck to see American companies returning back home, an end of the tidal wave of illegals, no more needless wars, massive deportations, and a restoration of the 2nd Amendment.

Well at least a couple of those things would suck.

This should be good. Which ones.

Not everyone is as xenophobic as you and Pat.  Not to mention inaccurate, as there is hardly a "tidal wave" of illegals, especially since the economic crash.  Funny thing is, before the border war was intensified by yahoos, illegals used to come here for seasonal work that Americans didn't want to do, make some money, then go home until the next year.  The more we enforce the borders, the more we make them stay here.  One of the unintended consequences that happens whenever we try to enforce unjust laws.  That's just fact, check out illegal immigration demos from the past 75 years.  We went from moderate two-way flow to massive one-way flow, although lately no one really wants to come here anymore comparatively speaking.


Your argument has more holes than swiss cheese. I'll grant you that illegal crossing has dipped because of the recession. Gee, what's going to happen once we get back on track? Please explained to me how we have an estimated 20 million illegals since the 1986 Reagan amnesty? If your theory was correct, we would have a fraction of that if the worked and went home.

 

I see you buy into the "doing jobs Americans won't do" malarky. Just curious, who did these jobs before we had this epidemic of illegals? I'll save you the time. Legal immigrants, teenagers, and low IQ Americans typiclly did these menial jobs.


I'm by no means an expert on this topic, nor is it of particular interest to me, but I have to agree with the "doing jobs americans won't do" myth being crap. You mean, "doing jobs for wages that would be illegal for employers to pay American citizens over the table"

I'm finally reading Sparky Lyle's "The Bronx Zoo" for the first time.  Just one of those books I always meant to read and never got around to.  Very entertaining.

Great, you will enjoy. I read it once, probably 30 years ago in high school, and there are quire a few stories in it that I can still remember clearly.

Finished it and loved it.  Only took me 3 days to get through - quick, fun read.  Felt it was much more entertaining than "Ball Four" actually, and I had read that one many moons ago.  Still hard to believe after all these years that they turned Sparky Lyle into a glorified mop-up man right after he won the Cy Young.

Just finished Michael Palmer's "A Heartbeat Away", a political thriller about a deadly virus being released during the State of the Union address and the President and everyone else needing to be quarantined.  My mother-in-law gave it to me and now I know why I rarely read "best-sellers".  Just awful.  Very much like a Hollywood summer blockbuster that makes no sense if you think about it for more than 5 seconds.  Looking forward to finding some good non-fiction again soon.
