Memory Lane Monday: Human Numbers

The environmentalists of today.The tree of death.Who doesn’t love a eugenics quote first thing Monday morning? Hey, here at PD we hate to disappoint so this week’s Memory Lane will feature Colorado State Professor Philip Cafaro.

May’s Book: The Coming Insurrection

That's about how it is.By choose a side, they mean firebomb cars and bow to the collective radical.PD has featured some rather tough picks before (Ray Kurzweil and Agenda 21 come to mind) and unfortunately this month will be one of those.

April’s Book: Free to Choose

Funny that.A great case is made here for liberty over government control.Okay, we’ve had a little Ayn Rand and a huge heaping of Orwell. It’s about time to add a dash of Milton Friedman.

The American Taxpayer-Funded Ouagadougou Embassy Book Club

Shocking.There’s also The Bottom Billion: Why the Poorest Countries are Failing and What Can be Done About It by Paul Collier.There’s nothing like the pleasant goodwill gesture of throwing in $79,989.68 for the sponsorship of an African Book Club.

The world knows that Dear Leader is an avid reader. Back in his first term Barack Obama even attempted joining the Venezuelan Book Club, when Chavez himself gifted him with Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent in front of the cameras.

March’s Book: 1984

Scumbag government...New-speak.  Double plus good.From one dystopia to another, for March we’re crossing off arguably the most hyped and quoted libertarian read, George Orwell’s 1984.

In saying that though, long-term PDers will recall that we already covered Orwell’s Animal Farm, since our staff felt that book was clearly the superior of the two.

February’s Book: Ayn Rand’s Anthem

Quote by Ayn Rand.It has been republished a number of times, with varying covers.Why has our PD Book Club finally decided to cover Ayn Rand? After all, we are a libertarian oriented organization. What took us so long to get to her?

Well, to be honest we were just waiting for Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin to tell the world not to.
