Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army by Jeremy Scahill
Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army

curt, July 19, 2008

Scahill had a great opportunity to expose Blackwater and how wrong it is for the US to be hiring mercenaries. (Its unAmerican!) But instead he crashes into "I hate republicans, I hate Catholics, I hate the military, but most of all I hate George Bush".
Scahill could have compaired the cost of training and maintaining special troops verses hiring them as mercinaries, he could pointed out the greater security there is for the soldiers when they are part of the military or that what Blackwater does reflects on all of us. But no he went into a convulsion about how bad US policy was in Iraq, he represented jokes made by the US Ambassitor as facts, and how innocent and great the Iraq's were compaired to the Americans.
Most of all I was disappointed this book had about as much spin as O'Riley's "No Spin Zone"

Super Smoothies: 50 Recipes for Health and Energy by Mary Corpening Barber
Super Smoothies: 50 Recipes for Health and Energy

curt, April 9, 2006

This is the greatest Smoothie book ever! I was training for a regional weight lifting meet and I owe my success to "the Rejuvenator" it really decreased my recovery time. I also fed it and others to my nephews high school swimming team with equal successful results.
