Don't Think of an Elephant! is the definitive handbook for understanding what happened in the 2004 election and communicating effectively about key issues facing America today. Author George Lakoff has become a key advisor to the Democratic party, helping them develop their message and frame the political debate. In this book Lakoff explains how conservatives think, and how to counter their arguments. He outlines in detail the traditional American values that progressives hold, but are often unable to articulate. Lakoff also breaks down the ways in which conservatives have framed the issues, and provides examples of how progressives can reframe the debate. Lakoff's years of research and work with environmental and political leaders have been distilled into this essential guide, which shows progressives how to think in terms of values instead of programs, and why people vote their values and identities, often against their best interests. "Don't Think of An Elephant!" is the antidote to the last forty years of conservative strategizing and the right wing's stranglehold on political dialogue in the United States. Read it, take action-and help take America back.

"I call it creative repurposing: Finding an alternative use--or ten--for items we all throw away every day. Of course, I come from a long line of creative repurposers. My grandmother used to make Christmas decorations out of the specimen cups from my grandfather's visits to the urologist. And you wonder why I have issues?" --Jeff Yeager, the Ultimate Cheapskate Prompted by the recession, the growing interest in frugality, and his passion for environmental conservation, Jeff Yeager presents Don't Throw That Away!, a practical and entertaining guide devoted entirely to the second element of the old environmentalist's mantra: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. With the humor and zaniness that readers have come to love from America's beloved Ultimate Cheapskate, Don't Throw That Away!, Jeff's first eBook original (talk about saving money on paper!), offers a slew of creative ways to repurpose all sorts of items that will have you saving money and the earth's resources:· Make a "cheapskate soap-on-a-rope" using a pair of worn out pantyhose and those little slivers of soap you normally discard.· Craft the perfect inflatable travel pillow using the plastic bladder from inside an empty container of "box wine" (bonus: making one will help you fall asleep). · Boil citrus rinds in water for 1 minute on the stove or in the microwave for a natural kitchen air freshener.From bottle caps to dryer lint, latex condoms to sour milk, Yeager proves that there's a way to repurpose it. Seasoned with thought-provoking facts about our disposable society and with short profiles of some true geniuses of creative repurposing (like the guy who covered his house with crushed beer cans to save money on aluminum siding), this eBook original will have you thinking twice before you reach for the garbage can and saying, "Whatever you do, Don't Throw That Away!"

* Should Patton have been promoted over Eisenhower? * Did the U. S. military win- and Congress lose- the Vietnam War? * Was it right to depose Saddam Hussein- and is it wrong to worry about a possible Iraqi civil war? The answer to these questions is a resounding yes, says author H.W. Crocker III in this stirring and contrarian new book. In Don't Tread on Me, Crocker unfolds four hundred years of American military history, revealing how Americans were born Indian fighters whose military prowess carved out first a continental and then a global empire- a Pax Americana that has been a benefit to the world. From the seventeenth century on, he argues, Americans have shown a jealous regard for their freedom- and have backed it up with an unheralded skill in small-unit combat operations, a tradition that includes Rogers' Rangers, Merrill's Marauders, and today's Special Forces. He shows that Americans were born to the foam too, with a mastery of naval gunnery and tactics that allowed America's Navy, even in its infancy, to defeat French and British warships and expand American commerce on the seas. Most of all, Crocker highlights the courage of the dogface infantry, the fighting leathernecks, and the daring sailors and airmen who have turned the tide of battle again and again. In Don't Tread on Me, still forests are suddenly pierced by the Rebel Yell and a surge of grey. Teddy Roosevelt's spectacles flash in the sunlight as he leads his Rough Riders charging up San Juan Hill. American doughboys rip into close-quarters combat against the Germans. Marines drive the Japanese out of their island fortresses using flamethrowers, grenades, and guts. GIs slug their way into Hitler's Germany. The long twilight struggle against communism is fought in the snows of Korea and the steaming jungles of Vietnam. And today, U. S. Navy SEALs and U.S. Army Rangers battle Islamist terrorists in the bleak mountains of Afghanistan, just as their forebears fought Barbary pirates two hundred years ago. Fast-paced and riveting, Don't Tread on Me is a bold look at the history of America at war.

"Richard Carlson provides one hundred new strategies for living more fully and worrying less as a means of attracting more wealth and abundance in our lives. Often we get into the trap of thinking that the only way to earn a good living is to stay late at the office, feeling stressed out and full of anxiety. However, this can actually get in the way of having a productive and rewarding career, and can drastically decrease our earnings. In thought-provoking, unique pieces, Carlson shows us how to invest in the market, instead of worrying about it; how to get real mileage out of reflection; how to make a truly great impression on clients; how taking your lunch break (instead of working through it) may pay off in more ways than you think; and how we shouldn't rely on too much data in making decisions." "Accept the fact that you can make excuses, or you can make money, but you can't do both," Carlson tells us, as he shows us how to spend most of our work time on the "critical inch" of our business, instead of on the peripheral agendas that don't really earn the big bucks. He tells us how to be prepared to walk away from any negotiation, and how this attitude will help us to strike better deals. And he reveals specific money strategies, such as why it's better to buy large deductible insurance, how to decide between a fixed and variable interest rate on a mortgage, and how to save two years of living expenses for when the unexpected happens." "Full of interesting and unique ideas for the overworked business person, Don't Worry, Make Money shows readers how to live a life that's more wealthy, productive, and carefree by refusing to let worry get you down."--BOOK JACKET.

Denny, Howie's best friend, has a father in the Eighth Army, battling Nazi General Rommel in North Africa. Every day the boys face reminders of war - scary headlines, blackouts, scrap collections, war-stamp drives.
