Are you fed up with Washington politicizing our economy and bureaucrats more focused on aggrandizing their power than aiding commerce? For many of us, the rhetoric emanating from our government doesn't reflect reality. In The Courage to do Nothing, Bill Flax gives a voice to the angry taxpayer articulating our concerns and offering cogent advice to our political leaders. Socialism is inherently flawed, but instead of allowing the free market to function, our politicians employ socialism concealed as compassion. Our cultural elites in Washington, Academia, Media, and Hollywood have built a modern Tower of Babel based on progressive fantasies. Their idealistic pursuit of Utopia is funded by your tax dollars. Socialism is but one pillar in this faulty tower, but it is the pillar du jour and America's future if we don't restore the traditional Christian values and limited government our nation was built upon. At eighteen, Bill Flax enlisted in the Marine Corps to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. It's now clear the gravest threat to our liberty comes from Washington itself. In The Courage to do Nothing, Bill interweaves faith, economics and patriotism through fascinating perspectives on the economy and relevant historical examples offering solutions for today's issues. Read The Courage to do Nothing to learn economic truths ignored by the cultural elites determined to change America into a European-style socialist boondoggle. Bill Flax provides the economic answers America needs to restore prosperity and liberty before it's too late. This book is essential reading for anyone desiring to understand how Washington's policies created and now prolong our economic turmoil. Learn the truth and the keys to restoring America.

The classic guidebook to everything from paper airplanes to spool tanks to slingshots is back in print, and is as fun, inventive, and charming as ever. How to Do Nothing literally tells "how to do nothing with nobody all alone by yourself"—real things, fascinating things, the things that you did when you were a kid, or your parents did when they were kids. This is a book to free your kid from video games for a few hours, a handbook on the avoidance of boredom, a primer on the uses of solitude, a child's declaration of independence. If you don't remember how to make a spool tank, what to do with an old umbrella, whether "pennies" come before or after "spank the baby" in mumbly-peg, or how to make rubber-band guns, slings, or clamshell bracelets, it's OK because Robert Paul Smith has collected all of this and more in How to Do Nothing. It's a book for kids, but parents are not prohibited from reading it.

Born without Legs, She Inspires Others to Overcome Jen Bricker was born without legs. Shocked and uncertain they could care for her, her biological parents gave her up for adoption. In her loving adoptive home, there was just one simple rule: "Never say 'can't.'" And pretty soon, there was nothing this small but mighty powerhouse set her sights on that she couldn't conquer: roller-skating, volleyball, power tumbling, and spinning from silk ribbons thirty feet in the air. Everything Is Possible is her incredible story--a story of God working out his plan for her life from before day one. Readers follow Jen from the challenges of growing up different to holding captive audiences numbering in the tens of thousands. Everything Is Possible shows readers what they can accomplish when they remove the words coincidence and limitation from their vocabulary. Filled with heart and spirit, as well as Jen's wit, wisdom, and no-holds-barred honesty, this inspiring true story points the way to purpose and joy. Foreword by Nick Vujicic.
