    AMERICA: YES WE ARE A CHRISTIAN NATION

    Maryann Brickett (Stupka). In her book, Maryann argues the case for all Americans to realize that America is a Christian nation. While America allows “freedom of religion” for everyone, there is a strong case that the founding fathers dedicated this land to God, and America’s constitution, laws, culture, traditions, customs, morality, and way of life are a direct result of biblical influence from the Bible. Using biblical citations Maryann outlines the Ten Commandments and how America has broken them. The book analyzes past civilizations which have fallen to the same immoral and debt ridden levels that America has now and shows how those civilizations have either ceased to exist or are now Third World countries. Maryann builds her case on the hundreds of famous people, including presidents, scientists, statesmen, and others who have proclaimed their strong faith in God. They have stated that it is impossible to govern without His divine help. Maryann also cites many of America’s cities which bear biblical names. Her goal is to inform readers of our nation’s roots, rich heritage, and engage them in the culture war to regain our country, one family at a time. One nation is one country, “under God” with liberty and justice for all.

  • Confessions in a Crown Vic: A Commentary on the American Dream Second Edition

    Confessions in a Crown Vic: A Commentary on the American Dream Second Edition

    “Confessions in a Crown Vic”
    Second Edition

    is the story of professional displacement during the Great Recession, an Architect as Cab driver, while seeking Architecture work. It interviews Paolo Soleri the visionary urban designer, the traffic engineer, Louis Lagomarsino, for Phoenix’s highway designs, and the cab passengers’ short stories of marginalization for their lack of a car. It’s a journey through an Architect’s life, beginning with schooling, travels, design, internship, and practices in the private to public projects for the USPS, USAF, USACOE, NAVFAC and manufacturing semiconductor facilities. It takes us through different urban configurations. But most of all it takes us through history’s cycles of political change, the semantics of their origins, the delivery of designs, and the affects of expansion and colonialist attitude’s in America. It’s a critique of Urban Sprawl, and the irrationality of relying on housing starts to determine a healthy economy. It examines Keynesian versus Classical economics, comparing them with the events of the last “American” century. He illuminates the American Dream’s unsustainable promise to even its poorest citizens, considering whether we can still re-materialize that dream out of its current mythological existence. Is this dream for everyone? Can we grow a culture based on the automobile and a limited fossil fuel economy? It challenges this dream’s configuration, while placing a heavy burden of responsibility for our economic demise on its mythical component, the greed that drove it, and the Sprawl that has burdened it.

  • Four Princesses from Provence

    Four Princesses from Provence

    During the Middle Ages noble women were often pawns in the great game of dynastic politics. But some of them were important players in their own right. The four daughters of the Count of Provence used their charms, beauty, and intelligence to move from their father’s small kingdom in the south of France to positions of power across Europe. Marguerite, Eleanor, and Sancha became queens of France, England, and the Kingdom of Sicily. They followed their husbands to new homes where they gave their new lands children and a family life. But the fourth daughter, Beatrice, was different. The man she loved was a political enemy; the man she married was an indifferent and self-absorbed prince who made it clear that political intrigue was more important to him than the love of a gentle and romantic girl from another country. The only happy moments Beatrice enjoyed were spent in secrecy with her lover. But the stakes of her emotional attachment were high and the dangers of a misstep were always great. Based on research into the history of Europe in the thirteenth century and on travel to all of the destinations where these princesses lived, this novel depicts a crucial period as Europe emerged from the slumber of the Dark Ages and began to awake slowly to the promise of modern life.

  • Mind War

    Mind War

    For millennia all attempts to end violent war by negotiated or imposed peace have brought only brief respite. On the premise that war is endemic to the human disposition, MindWar proposes to supersede its killing and destruction with a more civilized focus on the mind. The persons and properly of humans are replaced as targets by the divisive situations and perceptions. These are then analyzed and adjusted to a practical consensus. MW extends to sociopolitical applications generally, identifying and refining previously vague or unknown mental processes into a new science of “thought architecture” : a standard of rationality and precision in human affairs in which the experience and exercise of thought are finally, fully mature.

  • Quoting Matilda

    Quoting Matilda

    Though Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton are well-known historical names, that of Matilda Joslyn Gage usually evokes the response, “Who?” Yet, this amazing woman contributed equally for many years as part of a triumvirate with Anthony and Stanton. Matilda was involved in the women’s movement from 1852 until her death in 1898. She became a noted speaker and writer on woman’s suffrage. She was born in upstate New York to an abolitionist family. Indeed, her childhood home and her later long-time Greek Revival home (now a museum dedicated to her) in Fayetteville, New York, were both stops on the Underground Railroad. She was best known for her feminist and suffragist activities, but she was “written out of history” for many years, because she was considered by her peers to be too radical in all she proposed to accomplish. Inspired by the Haudenosaunee women who were her neighbors and who adopted her into their Mohawk wolf clan, she was determined to gain the rights of property ownership, governance and equality of power for her 19th century sisterhood. She fought for the rights of Native Americans and enslaved persons and anyone else impacted by government control. She had a life-long desire for justice and equality for all and was connected to the ideas of Theosophy and Unitarianism. This moved her to take on the inequality of women in religious institutions, which deemed her in the eyes of her contemporaries as too radical. Along with Stanton, Gage published The Woman’s Bible. Her book, Women, Church and State was deemed as “going too far” by many. She championed women inventors and was the inspiration behind her son-in-law L. Frank Baum’s 14 Oz books. You will find her immensely quotable!

  • The Communication Gap: Breaking the Cosmic Communication Barrier

    The Communication Gap: Breaking the Cosmic Communication Barrier

    Breaking the cosmic communication barrier is breaking the constricted barrier of the dual mind. Have you ever wondered why there are those who have ears that hear not and eyes that see not? It is evident that it’s not enough to simply hear or see things, for there is something missing when one simply does that.

    By breaking the barrier of the dual mind, we come to see and not see at the same time, and to hear and not hear at the same time. We come to have ears that hear and eyes that see. This is why the deaf are said to hear and the blind are said to see.

  • The Fruitful Prayer Life

    The Fruitful Prayer Life

    Prayer is fundamental to the life of faith. At the heart of prayer is intimate fellowship with God. Yet many seem to view prayer as just another religious activity to engage in, not really knowing whether God will answer or not.

    In this book, Pastor McClinton E. Porter provides many thought-provoking insights and practices that will create a desire in you to develop a lifestyle of consistent communion and fellowship with God. The contents are presented in a conversational tone and practical manner that makes prayer “doable” and perceives God as approachable, not austere and condemning.

    Some of the topics addressed in this volume are:

    • Prayer and Faith
    • The Covenant Names of God in Prayer
    • Prayer and Worship
    • Prayer in the Spirit

    Use this book for yourself and then with a small group, encouraging others to find this place of prayer. One of the disciples who observed Jesus’ prayer life asked Him, “Lord, teach us to pray…” With God’s help, Rev. Porter is doing just that and you can continue to do likewise for others. The anticipated result is a “Fruitful Prayer Life.”
