Zinn tells it as it is. He should be read by every American that can read.

That America under the current leadership is trying to control the world is obvious to most people who take an interest in international affairs. That America must be stopped is self-evident.

Cheers.

P.S. My blog article called Saving America might be of interest to some.

WA: Thank you, Daniel/David G. I shall check it out. It is also evident that there is NO humanity in this empire-building. only greed and lust for power.

Hello, Worried.
I'm looking through the pages of that book right now.
It looks really cool.
Reminds me of those graphic novels of the classics that I would read in late elementary- early junior high years. I would read those things to find out what a story was about to see if the book was worth reading.

I'm thinking I like Zinn.
Have you come across him before this?

Hi, PT. Sorry for the delayed response. I killed my mouse, had to go buy a new one, the connection was incompatible with my UMB port, had to go exchange it. I HOPE all is well now.
I have come across Zinn's writing before. Mostly I like him also. I agree, he's pretty cool.
