Books

Went to Borders today and purchased several books:
  1. "Slander: Liberal Lies about the American Right", Coulter, A., Three Rivers Press (2002), $32.95
  2. "The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order", Huntington, S.P., Simon & Schuster (1996), $29.95
  3. "C Primer Plus", Prata, S., SAMS Publishing, 2005, $74.95
  4. "C++ Primer Plus", Prata, S., SAMS Publishing, 2005, $74.95
The first two should make for interesting reading. The first because it is written by someone who I don't hold in particular high esteem, but post-reawakening, may actually agree with to a large extent. The second because it is often held high as a crystal ball into the future by some, and held high as an example of right-wing paranoia by others.

The other two books are effectively work tools. They are pretty big and meaty, and hopefully will help alot with work.

Incidentally, here is a paragraph from a recent Ann Coulter article:
Which brings me to this week's scandal about No Such Agency spying on "Americans." I have difficulty ginning up much interest in this story inasmuch as I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East, and sending liberals to Guantanamo.
As I hope you can see, she is being humorous here. But then again, lefties generally don't have a sense of humour. They probably think conservative pundits, like Ann Coulter, eat babies for dinner. This is a point that Rush Limbaugh makes in the foreward to "Slander".

[Update: I was disgusted by the number of books on shelf penned by the traiterous Noam Chomsky.]
