I watch Brad Meltzer's Decoded on History. It's an interesting show.

Any of the new folks want to weigh in? I'm looking for a new book.

Ayn Rand. If you haven't read "Atlas Shrugged" you should, especially considering the situation we have now in government at all levels. It seems less like fiction with each passing day.

This is not fiction, they are horror stories...

I've tried to read it a couple of times. It's to dry for me. I will try again. My friend wants to debate it with me and I keep saying I'll get around to it, then I don't.

I tried that, nobody debates it. They either think that it's the new world order and your stupid or they think it trash and your stupid, there,s no descussion unless you just agree with the guy talking.

I would say that's true about most political and religious stand points.

I don't discuss it things like that in mixed company. I prefer to stay friends with people.

A freind lent me the book, some guy at the mall saw it in my car and started on me, when I got home the guy next door saw the book in my hand and he started in in me from the other side. I gave the book back and never read it.
