Two great books written way before their time, or were they? Almost a prophecy the way they were written.

A few years ago Big Brother seemed but a dream that has come to fruition recently. For some, if not all of the details, i urge you NOT TO PM ME through this message board. I do urge you to email me at [email protected] for the real story. Please put Masscops in the heading.

Seig Heil Herr Moderator.

Sheesh, you could just find another message board if you don't like this one. It's not like anyone's forcing you to post here or not allowing yout to post anywhere else. I actually have no idea what your major malfunction, but to bring up Hitler references :shock: ? Unless members of your family are being marched off to their deaths, maybe you should take a step back and relax.

Yeh that kind of freaks me out a little bit.

I do agree, however, that 1984 is a great book. I read it in High School and loved it, still do. Never read Farenheit 451 though.

Read between the lines people, then re-read the message I am sending out there.

I don't condone what Herr Mustache did but the Hitleresque qualities on this board and the revelations recently made to me were astounding. I can't share these with you through the PM system on here, you know? WINK WINK, NUDGE NUDGE. Read between the lines people. Big Brother is watching.

JSG2020,

Maybe if people like me spoke out in the mid 30's in germany then WW2 may not have happened. People were led off to slaughter without saying a word. I intend on speaking out, consequences be damned.

I know this is a private message board but the 1st amendment doesn't qualify on here I guess. The only analogy I can describe it seems to be like having your postman read your mail before he delivers it.

1. I am quite sure that there is a SMALL danger of an evil dictatorship rising from your lack of "speaking out" on this message board.

2. No, the 1st amendment doesn't apply on a private message board.

Housing do me a favor....... Just go elsewhere will you, this Neo-Nazi shit is getting on my nerves, there was obviously a communication glitch somewhere between you and Hunter. I spoke with him this morning briefly and got the distinct impression that both of you thought I was reading your PM's.

The PM's and email I was speaking of where directed to me (members complaining about the turmoil the past few days)

There is no easy way that I am aware of to read PM's unless I want to sift through a 1000 plus member mysql database and try to match content up with a series of auto generated PMID numbers and you sir are not worth that amount of time. There is no interface in the admin panel and no hacks posted on the phpBB site so in short you are jumping to conclusions. So that I am no longer accused of reading your PM's they have been disabled in your account so there should be no more issues with that.

If I really have to explain myself here it is:

Your topic about the MSP jokes was only put there for one reason. In light of the bad feelings on the board I feel that Hunter should have deleted the post instead of replying to it and in short supporting it. You where either upset because you where not the center of attention or you where just jumping on the bandwagon.

As far as I am concerned this is a dead issue, no more phone calls, no PM's and no emails. It's a friggen message board nothing more. The time I spend working on the site is like my little hobby, for the most part I enjoy it but when it starts taking up time that I was not plaining on it is no longer fun, especially when I am explaining shit I really don't feel I need too.

If you really dislike the way I run MY site then LEAVE!

I thought Dreamcatcher sucked... Stephen King is really running out of juice. I really wish he would just stick to the ghost stories and stay away from the Dimensional Warp Generator stuff. :alien: I am still a fan of his earlier work, but it's strange how in the past 15 years or so he's been putting out some real crap like Needful Things and then in between books puts out something incredible, like The Green Mile and Desperation. I am also disappointed with the endings to some of his stories, books that start out great and then the ending is ridiculous, like Insomnia.

I liked Needful Things :roll: For any of you football types out there, I just finished Jon Gruden's book and it was pretty good. I am dying for the Pats to win this year; mybe Belichick will break down and write one...:)

Since this seems to have turned into the book review I'll add my 2 cents. I agree with jsg, Needful Thing was a good book but my favorite King novel has to be Pet Cemetery. I just finished Bill O'Riely's Who's Looking Out for You it was a very insightful and easy to read book. Next book I plan to read is Shut up and Sing by Laura Ingraham.

All time Stephen King favorites: Carrie, The Shining, and The Dead Zone. I read It when I was a kid and loved it, but the movie, along with the movie for Needful Things, were the two most atrocious Hollywood adaptions I have ever seen. The best movies: Stand By Me, The Green Mile, and The Shawshank Redemption.

I agree Mopar, especially the huge 1500+ page rewrite. You can't have a cold with out worrying after reading that book.

Book I'm reading now (real good):

"When the Game Stands Tall: The Story of the De LA Salle Spartans and Football's Longest Winning Streak"

151 freaking games in a row, they haven't lost since 1992. I need to get me some of that. :lol:

Two great books.

Just started reading "A European History "by Norman Davies. I got it for Xmas. It's 1300 pages plus. It will likely take the better part of a year to get through this one.

I'm still a Catcher in the Rye fan all the way. Since someone brought up Neo-Nazi stuff etc., has anyone read Mein Kamph? It's Hitler's autobiography. Before I get started, I in no way support the Nazi way of life, or Hitler, or really any of that crap. If anyone has read it, what did you think of the book? I had to read it for an AP History class in high school, and found it interesting. Not really for the ideas, but the writing style and political theroies.

Starship Troopers, one of my favorites of all time! But I disagree with whoever wrote the quote you posted...it is a democracy, not a military dictatorship. All of the political leaders are elected; the military is still subserviant to civilian leaders, they are just elected by "citizens". Citizens are persons that have earned the right to vote by serving honorably in the the military. They have proven with their blood, sweat and tears that they feel a responsibility to the republic. It is, in fact, an oligarchy, where qualified people are the only persons allowed to vote. I highly recommend it to any military, former military and police officers; it is in fact on the the DOD list of recommended readings for soldiers.

By the way, the 2 books I'm reading right now is the "The Wolves of Calla" by Stephen King and "Guns, Germs and Steel: The Fates of Human Society" by Jared Diamond. Both good works.
