    The Trump book Think Big is very good. Not that I believe what he says about himself (“I only need 3 hours of sleep a night”), but he gives good goals to aspire to.

    One of my favorites goes something like this: Email and text is for diffident chickens—ts. Pick up the phone! I make 50 phone calls by noon every day.

    Okay, I don’t believe him. But it’s a good goal. 50 phone calls a day, if you can do it, will all but guarantee success.

    Love Thy Neighbor A story Of War by Peter Maass. It is about the Balkans War in the 90's and what neighbors did to each other because of history 500 years before. The violence makes me sick and I am a person that reads about this stuff all the time. The ways people found to hurt each other is astounding. These people made the Nazi's look humane. And to think this is what the fringes of America want to happen here.

    I'm finishing up Eustace Mullins' "The Secrets of the Federal Reserve: The London Connection". This is the 1993 birthday edition of the latest version first written in the early 1950's and last updated during the Reagan era in the 1980's. Upon his death in 2010 Mullins made it free for everyone to read (http://www.jrbooksonline.com/PDF_Bo...jdp-XvDhONSLcmMhAgVnzUTnbgoFYWvTHC41ApeqrC9po). As someone who graduated from one of the best political science schools in the world, this was news to me (as an aside, IMHO the best universities can teach you everything about polisci but what you need to know). I also studied public administration in grad school and I was a public administrator and elected central committee member. Again, no one discusses any of this but trust me, people don't have a clue about American history until they get wise about The London Connection and what it's been doing to our country and this world. Thomas Jefferson was literally battling this same family 200 years ago and the struggle persists today.

    Kill, Capture, Vanish by Annie Jacobson. Pretty good so far. The part where the CIA mind screws everyone until they give up seems to be what is happening in this country now.
