I have been a regular guest on The World with TJ McCormack recently. During one of the shows, TJ asked me what I would consider important reading. I thought it was a great question, and was amazed that I never had a list here.
At the bottom of TonyKatz.com, there is a new section called Most Important Documents. Slowly, I’ll be filling it with what I consider the things everyone should be reading. Some of them will be free texts, some will be links to books I consider must reads.
If I link to a book, you should know that I am not being paid to do so. If I own the book, I paid for it, or it was given as a gift to me for a birthday or some other event, but not as a Quid Pro Quo. If I am ever offered, or accept, payment for a book review or a link, I will mention it. If I suggest a book, I may add a link to Amazon so you can purchase it. If so, I will let you know if I offer that link via an affiliate program.
I look forward to adding to the list over time. For now, take a look, and give a read. If you have a suggestion, add it in the comments.
“We have become increasingly concerned that EPA and many other agencies and countries have paid too little attention to the science of global warming. EPA and others have tended to accept the findings reached by outside groups, particularly the IPCC and the CCSP, as being correct without a careful and critical examination of their conclusions and documentation…”
This statement, from the EPA, and released by the Competitive Enterprise Institute, says it all. Cap and Trade is not about saving the planet. If it was, lawmakers, and those who pray at the altar of the Church of Environmentalism, would be concerned that the bill in front of the House does near nothing to help the planet. Lawmakers are not concerned with the planet, they are looking for new ways to tax the citizens, and by doing so, make them dependent on government for relief from those taxes. Cap and Trade is about control, by government, of you.
If it weren’t so blatant, you’d think I was making this up.
Every Thursday, at 8am PDT, I will be the guest of TJ McCormack on The World Of TJ McCormack on LA Talk Radio. I do my first show tomorrow, and look forward to a great conversation with TJ, and with the listeners. Ask me any question you want by calling the show at 1-323-203-0815, email me or you can send me a tweet, and I’ll read your question on the air.
Thanks for being so supportive. I look forward to brewing up some more content in the near future.
Come celebrate the 4th of July with some like-minded Americans this year in the Los Angeles Area. We will be gathering in Pasadena at Memorial Park from 11am to 1pm. It will be a day of music, food (bring a picnic), conversation, education and lots of laughs. We’ll have speakers talking about the greatness of America, and what we can do to keep it going for generations to come.
All are invited – Libertarians, Democrats, Republicans, Conservatives, Liberals, Independents and anyone else I did not mention here. For more information, visit the page on Facebook. See you there!
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) would like to think otherwise. She would like to think that because she has decided to stop talking about it, that it is a dead topic, and no one else should be allowed to talk about it.
Talk about what? Well, about whether or not she lied in a press conference when she stated that the CIA has misled Congress, and always misleads Congress, and about whether or not she lied in a press conference about when she was briefed regarding Enhanced Interrogation Techniques, and what was in those briefings.
The Speaker is having a really bad nightmare, and is now hoping the rest of us will have a great, big daydream. When you accuse the CIA of lying to you, you need to be able to prove it. It is unthinkable, and downright irrational, to believe that you can accuse the CIA of misleading Congress, then not expect to be asked questions about it….lots of questions about it. Questions like:
“Can you prove that?”
“Do you have proof of that?”
“Does anyone else corroborate this?”
“What were you told?”
“Where do you buy your pants suits?”
The accusation, which the Speaker (in her infinite wisdom, or drug-induced stupor) put forth, without any provocation from those within the Democrat Party, is serious. Very serious. Gravely serious. And it is irrational to think that the Speaker should not have to answer the basic questions. Cutting off reporters by saying, “I stand behind my comments”, and refusing to speak further about the subject, is akin to a nine year-old girl with chocolate on her hands explaining what happened to the broken cookie jar on the floor by saying, “Uh-uhh. I don’t know. The Bush Administration did it!”
The Speaker is in a world of trouble. And Democrats know it. She maybe Speaker, but that does not make her impenetrable to the political realities. This story, which she created, is not going away, and the rest of us aren’t going to have daydreams about pretty flowers, or a shirtless President Obama until we forget that the Speaker is quite possibly initiating a cover-up. She needs to explain herself, and show viable proof that the CIA misled Congress, as well as viable proof that she was not briefed. If she can’t provide these basics (basics any normal person would have when accusing the CIA of lying to you), then she must resign.
It ain’t over til it’s over, Speaker Pelosi. The nightmare you started is still here.
See you all at 3pm on Sunday, May 17th. I will be speaking, along with some very smart and funny people (like Evan Sayet), at the Westwood Tea Party, to take on Propositions 1A-1F. These Propositions are voted on in California on Tuesday, May 19th.
My talk, however, will focus on how far we have come, how far we can go, and laying out the case for Principle over Party. Hope to see you there. Be sure to say hello.
A nasty little bug that just wouldn’t go away. That is what has forced me to wipe out the entire site and start anew. Now begins the slow, arduous task of rebuilding. In the end, it will be worth it. Right now, it is just annoying.
My library of posts will be back up in the next few days, and new content will be coming soon.
(***UPDATE*** So, it’s been more than a few days. I apologize for that. I will continue to find time to clear through all of the mess and find the posts within. It’s pretty ugly.)
