Note to kids, parents and teachers: We can pretend and have fun listening to stories that are not true. Give your answers to the questions before you proceed. You answer can be different or the same. If two or more persons are listening to this book, you can take turns listening to the story, and then stop and have the others use their imagination and guess by saying what they think will happen next. 1.

> Democrats are so dumb they think it´s cool to have a jackass for their party symbol. The association goes back to the election of 1828. Andrew Jackson´s opponents started calling him Jackass Jackson as a term of derision. The story is the old general took a shine to the name and started printing up posters with a picture of a jackass next to his name. Over the years the symbol just sort of stuck. Sometime in the 1870s humorist Thomas Nast created a cartoon for Harper´s Weekly that portrayed the Democratic jackass and the newly created Republican elephant. Ever since then they´ve been the party mascots. Pretty appropriate if you think about it, one is an ass, and the other one drops a really big load. Politics 101. All it takes is an ass and a really big load of shit. Put the two together and you´ve got a politician. This book is a snarky, somewhat twisted look at politics. Along the way, you´ll meet Obama, Clinton, and Biden. Even though it´s a book about democrats we´re going to do a little Bush bashing - father and son. If you dislike Democrats this may be the book for you. If you dislike politics in general, this may be the book for you. I´m a political agnostic. I´ve got no love for Democrats, Republicans, or the Tea Party. And, yes, that irreverence shows throughout the book. If you´re fed up with politics, politicians, and all of their BS - Read this book, and register a vote for sanity. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dave Wright.

We make no apologies for this, as this is its sole purpose; to allow mankind to see that which lurks beneath hidden sin and thereby give everyone who dares to enter into these gates a second chance. What is this second chance? To see what sin looks like in its truth and allow another choice before it´s too late for the remedy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mary Hughes.

Early one summer morning, 14-year-old Vivian Thompson rode out of Taos, New Mexico Territory, on her way to Cimarron. Following the stage road east up Taos Canyon, would take several hours getting to the top of the summit, 9,100 feet high Palo Flechado Pass. The road ran along the north side of a meandering creek. Farther up it switched back left then right, growing steeper and steeper. Once up top there was a pull out clear spot where the stage stopped to rest horses. She stopped and looked down the east side of the mountain. Miles below she could see the Moreno Valley. Just as she started to ride on, she heard a pistol shot then a rifle fired echoing loud and long. A short second later the pistol fired again. She looked down a canyon leading east by southeast and saw chimney smoke coming from a small log cabin. ´´Horse, that sounds as if someone is in trouble. We´d better check that out.´´ She reached down and removed the thong from the hammer of her 45, then without looking reached and touched the stock of her 44 40. 1. Language: English.

My memoirs of Vietnam are more like an MRI than a book written about an image of me at 26 - taken by me at 73. I´m the technician operating the big tube - you are the radiologist studying the results, but the image is not of me. No, it´s a picture of you; because we are all drafted to Vietnam. Shortly after starting, my work took on a life of its own, realizing that your Vietnam is infinitely more relevant and important than mine, and you are all alone - just as I was in southeast Asia. So when you listen, think about yourself, think about your own personal Vietnam. Then I invite you to join me to Think Snow. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kenneth Kinsler.
