The Great Reactionary Reading Revival Continues
Title: The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle That Changed the World
Author: W. Cleon Skousen
Blurb: “After the American election of 1980, Skousen was appointed to the Council for National Policy, a think tank of influential politicians, scholars and academics that lent support and advice to President Ronald Reagan’s administration. Among the many solutions Skousen proposed included suggested programs to convert the Social Security system to private retirement accounts and a plan to completely wipe out the national debt.”
Review: “Every conscious citizen needs to understand these principles so that we do not loose the freedoms and prosperity we now enjoy.”

This looks like the perfect read for that family member who watches the Olympics while chanting “U – S – A” for 12 straight hours. I think the Zombie Bible makes lots more sense and is better grounded in reality.
This is ranked #10 on Amazon? There is no hope for our future…
Speaking of right wing fucktards, I guess I missed hearing about how Rush Limbaugh said Obama was nervous about killing “black Muslim teenagers,” aka Somali pirates.
Don’t you just hate it when you “loose” your freedoms?
And here’s a book Glenn Beck should have read before subjecting us to that video after his operation…
@SanFranLefty: Geez, Rush, he didn’t kill them fast enough for you? Well, excuse me, but I think we need a Preznit who hesitates to kill anyone. Although, I wouldn’t object to Rush being placed on a hit list. Fat drug addict fucktard would be an easy target, couldn’t miss something that big.
The number five and words, leap and year, should never be used as a title for anything. The Chinese found out the hard way.
“Among the many solutions Skousen proposed included suggested programs to convert the Social Security system to private retirement accounts and a plan to completely wipe out the national debt”
Corrected for reality:
Among the many solutions Skousen proposed included suggested programs to convert the Social Security system to private retirement accounts which would have wiped out the Social Security system and eliminate the national debt thru, um, liberal use of libertarian pixie dust aka COCAINE.
@WaltTrombone: I dunno. My brother missed a cow elk at 50 yards last fall, but he was shooting left handed with a rifle and sights he was unfamiliar with.
He was using my Marlin* Model 36G lever action in .30-30 Win. a budget model gun my dad purchased in the early 60s at a department store. Only about 5,000 were made, so ironically it’s probably the most valuable gun in my collection, or would be were it not restocked due to a crack in the wood from slipping on ice on a hunt. I also installed a Williams peep sight with a fiber optic bead (like a poor man’s laser) up front after being turned on to peep sights from my Model 1903A3 pre- WW2 battle rifle in .30-06. Thing is all beat up, the stock has burn marks on it, and its barrel and receiver are from different makers so it was obviously rebuilt at an armory and rushed back to the front. The other Model 1903A3 I have from 1942 didn’t have a stock, so I dropped it in a black fiberglass number I ordered and put a vintage Weaver scope made in El Paso, Texas I got from my father in law on it. THAT is a very, very accurate rifle but pretty heavy at 9 lbs.)
So anyway, it would be possible to miss a water buffalo like Rush at close range.
*One of my enviro law and beer drinking buddies is from the family that owned Marlin up until late last year. For obvious reasons, he didn’t want people to know that. We got to be good buds when I told him that I took an elk with the aforementioned .30-30.
@redmanlaw: I own a Marlin lever action .30-30 myself, from the late 60s- early 70s, with some sort of anniversary medallion in the stock. Not sure of the model.
It shouldn’t be too hard to get too close to Rush, due to his deafness. Between that and the Oxycontin, he probably wouldn’t even notice anybody coming for him.
@WaltTrombone: I never before heard that Rush is deaf. I knew of course that he is both deaf and blind to truth and wisdom, but not that he can’t hear very well. That may go some microscopic part of the way toward explaining his paranoia.
First of all, insomnia and heartburn suck.
W/r/t the author, he’s a momo, and the general consensus amongst the exmos is that he’s wackadoo. Same goes for Beck, a momo convert. He cries like a TBM (true blue or true believing Mormon) all.the.time. Apparently at momo sacrament meetings, someone always starts crying when they bear their testimony. The exmos were horrified at how well this dumb old book was selling, but they expect the sales to fall off soon b/c there are only so many English-speaking momos in the world who also listen to Beck.
In other news, Gladys Knight is still Mormon, as are the Osmonds, and as is that woman that wrote those horrific Twilight novels.
ADD: But dude that made those shirtless missionary calendars — he was excommunicated, and I think BYU did not confer his degree despite the fact that he met the credits requirements.
