|Christians Killing Communist Cannibals May 29, 2009|
|A book about God-fearing Christians who tolerate one Jewish friend after the apocalyptic failure of the monetary system.|
The good part is where they gun down a pair of Communists in cold blood because, of course, they're cannibals and they can't account for the Kruggerands and Rolexes in their bags.
The book is mostly a shopping list of survivalist things to buy and a paranoid fantasy of The Great Big Evil Government That's Not Really Conservative Enough.
Paranoid and ridiculous, it only goes to reinforce the arguments of opponents of the Second Amendment.
Stupid beyond belief and terribly written.
|Not only exciting but extremely informative! May 28, 2009|
|I found this book to be not only a very good read, but stimulated a lot of thought about situations, conditions, and choices I had never pondered myself. A life changing novel that has provided a map, if you will, for getting a handle on preparedness for myself and my family. I recommend this book to all of my friends and family. |
|Another gloom and doomer... May 28, 2009|
|Mr. , Rawles, however he punctuates his name has rewritten this book a number of times, you might think he'd get it right eventually. Alas, he still thinks that the answer to most problems is superior firepower in the hands of people who think that hoarding nickels and ammunition will help them survive an economic meltdown. |
His website exists to sell more "survival" products up to and including complete retreats located in the hinterlands of Idaho and Montana. He reminds one of the character in that film a few years ago with Robin Williams and the late great Walter Matthau in which the survival instructors real game is to sell his naive students as much army surplus gear and time shares as he can all while preaching about the end of the world.
To his credit, after years of lawsuits, counter-suits, investigations, etc. Mr. , Rawles finally stopped taking money from one of his sponsors, a gun training camp located near Pahrump NV run by a wack job Scientologist named Piazza.
|Excellent Fiction mixed with real how-to. Would make a great movie! May 28, 2009|
|Great Book that tells a wonderfully American story about grit, determination and freedom. Plus it mixes in real how-to information into the dialogue to create a seamless, exciting story set in the todays thematic setting. Since the book was written several years ago the practical story line is spooky for its real world relevance in today's uncertain times. This is a must read for anyone who has the intellectual integrity to examine America's "Just-in-time" or Drive thru culture and its resulting vulnerabilities. I also appreciated the author's ability to paint a correct picture of the real American culture in our rural geographies which includes Faith, Honor and a Sense of Duty to the Constitution. NOT FOR LIBERALS-You don't have the emotional maturity to understand and learn from this book. Go back to your Latte's unless you can put aside your ideology and learn some real charcteristics of the Preparedness Paradigm.|
|Skeptic converted May 28, 2009|
|This book was sent to me by a respected friend. If it was sent to me by anyone else I would never had read it. To say the least I was skeptical. The further I read the more I looked around and realized how very unprepared My family is. Thanks to this "Novel" I am trying to take some prudent steps to protect those who are important to me. |
As a review of this as a literary work it captivates, Entertains and informs. I have since purchased copies for my distant family.
