LISTEN, LIBERAL OR WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE PARTY OF THE PEOPLE by Thomas Frank
Listen, Liberal: Or, What Ever Happened to the Party of the People? - Thomas Frank

Starting with the Carter administration this is a look at how the Democratic party pulled away from its working class base and turned toward the people with money.  It gives a history of the change and the affect it had on the middle class and politics up through today.  I got mad as I read it and had to put it down several times.  I understood what was said.  Mr. Frank kept it simple and, at times, humor poked through.  I wish I would have been more politically aware when I was younger and understood what was happening and how it would impact me and my world.  Worth the read!

REQUIEM FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM by Noam Chomsky
Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 P... Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 Principles of Concentration of Wealth & Power - Noam Chomsky,Peter Hutchison,Kelly Nyks,Jared P. Scott
  Very timely. Very interesting. It's the companion book to the documentary by the same name. I liked that he went back 50 years to put what is happening today in our government and society in prospective and giving us the history of what has led up to today. He gives examples as well as excerpts of his source materials. This is written so it can be understood by everyone. I learned a lot. There is a lot to think about in these pages.

One Tribe at a Time: The Paper that Changed the War in Afghanistan

If this book was utilized as it is meant it will be the end to terrorism in Afghanistan. General Petraeus knew it and started to use it. bin Laden knew it and marked the author for assassination. Now this step-by-step guide should be heeded again and fully implemented.

Great book! It should be required reading for anyone coming back from combat and wondering how to adjust back to civilian life and what to do with their lives now.

Oliver the Cat Who Saved Christmas: The ... Oliver the Cat Who Saved Christmas: The Tale of a Little Cat with a Big Heart - Sheila Norton

Daddy got me this for my birthday. And since I finally pushed through the end of The Forever Song I can get to this just in time for the holiday it's about. 

 

My health is on the mend, very slowly. I got a semi-diagnosis. My ovaries aren't producing enough estrogen. Which is what causes menopause, for those of you young enough to not have to worry about such things. Mind you, I just turned 32. I shouldn't be having these issues. So now I'm being referred to a specialist for further tests and to figure out a course of treatment. Yay me. My eyes still ache, and I'm sometimes nauseous. But I can function at least. I'm also seeing my primary care manager to get something for the migraine pain.

 

On a brighter note, I won a 6 month subscription to Book of the Month Club with an Instagram photo I took.

 

 

It was my 4th try. Lol. I was determined to win. Not just because I'm competitive but because it will ease our budget a tiny bit each month.

 

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful Whatever You  Celebrate.
