The #1 seller for all books at Amazon today is Mark Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto

Barely two months into the administration of the most far left extremist President in over 30 years, and a book called a “manifesto for the conservative movement for the 21st century”, and explains how conservative principles are “always an enhancement to individual freedom” is flying off the shelves and into the minds of Americans.

Could it be the centrists who voted for “Change” without looking too closely at just what that change was are having a bit of buyers remorse? It’s a safe bet that Conservatives and right of center centrists who stayed home on election day because they just weren’t that thrilled with John McCain are figuring out that the lesser of two evils wasn’t such a bad idea after all?

It does appear that the left’s crowing about the “death of Conservatism” after our Dear Leader’s election, was a bit premature.

Also available as an audio book on CD.

Another one bites the dust

Yet another one of BHO’s selections, this one for Deputy Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, has removed his name from the running. It was disclosed that Jon Cannon was on the board of a nonprofit group faulted for mishandling federal grant money.

A 2007 EPA inspector general’s report on the foundation alleged a variety of irregularities involving $25 million in federal grants to assess water quality problems, including those at farms and pork processing facilities. The problems with accounting, improper cash advances and similar violations stretched from 1998 to 2005, according to the report.

Monday Book Picks

Each Monday, I post a book I enjoyed and think my dear readers will as well.

The latest was On Basilisk Station by David Weber.

The first book in David Weber’s best selling Honor Harrington series. Often, and accurately called “Horatio Hornblower in Space,” this series tells the tale of an Officer in Royal Manticorian Navy. In this book, she is a Commander and has just received her second “Hyper” command. Set in the far future, the series has a definate “Age of Sail” feel, with missle broadsides instead cannon broadsides.

Here is this year’s archive and last year’s archive.
