Operation EFAD From Travis McGee

Since my Free Republic Champion (Copernicus where art thou?) has been AWOL for over a year I do not follow events at Free Republic as closely as I once did, but I have learned long time Freeper and author Travis McGee has put his money where his heart is and concocted an interesting Falun Gong saber -rattling exercise.

On March 1st his contemporary action thriller *Enemies, Foreign and Domestic* will be available for free download from Amazon in a maneuver called Operation #EFAD.

The idea is to pump up download numbers so quickly the book will rise to the top of Amazon’s Bestseller Index.

You can help in two ways:

1. Publish the link everywhere.
2. Download the book.

It is a good read, but even if you already have a paid copy download another one for friends and family.

This could be a useful Public Relations Coupe if it works as designed.

Tantalizing Excerpt:

Communiqué #1: D-Day Minus Seven, February 23

Want to join a beat-up old ex-Navy SEAL, ocean sailor and book writer on a real-world covert cyber operation?

I knew you did. So here’s the deal. The idea is a national clandestine psyop, using my first novel as a vehicle.

On next Thursday, March 1, Enemies Foreign And Domestic will be put into Amazon Kindle’s free library.

Where EFAD’s free download promotion will be different from those of the thousands of fantasy/romance/vampire novels currently offered on Kindle, is that I’m simultaneously coordinating a mass plan to ensure that Operation EFAD goes hyper-viral on all constitutionally-oriented, freedom-loving, and Second Amendment websites and blogs at the same time.

Or on at least on as many as I can reach, and that is where you come in. There are literally hundreds of patriotic websites and blogs, and I can only reach a few. You can reach them all, every last one. And then some. More about this in the next communiqué on D Minus Six.

Mr.Spock Says Nuke The Arctic Icecaps!

Yee Haw!!!! …….. It’s on Youtube! ………. It’s on Youtube!

For YEARS I reminisced to skeptical associates about “IN SEARCH OF” –The LOST Episode!!

No less than Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock to you Trekkies) hosted a documentary style TeeVee show which featured a wide variety of strange topics back in the late 1970s/early 1980s.

With subjects that ranged from UFO’s to secret Ancient Egyptian technology the shows were a wacky mixture of fringe theory gossip and slick propaganda.

Arguably the slickest of slick propaganda dealt with….. (are you safely seated??) …. The Coming Ice Age!

Yes! Long before Al Gore, Leonard Nimoy was deeply enamored with climate change mythology, BUT from the Global Cooling Side of the Equation!

Frankly, Al Gore could take some lessons from a professional!

The Coming Ice Age begins on a hysterical note (complete with ominous bassoon in the opening tease) and escalates into pure panic in just twenty minutes (of broadcast time)!

After We, the Audience, have been lectured about perpetual snow in Mississippi, the collapse of food production in the San Joaquin Valley, the loss of grazing land in the mid-west; total crop loss in Kansas, Indiana and Idaho, and chiiiiildren freezing to death alone, hungry and in the dark….. the prospect of nuking the Arctic to melt ice caps seems down right reasonable!

And if that does not work, it might still be possible to spread black soot over large tracts of ice so the sun will melt it for us!

It is all very scientific, dontcha know!!

Really! A 20th Century Classic! Must-see TEEVEE!

Yum! Groundhog Culinary Recipes

Tantalizing Excerpt:

Woodchuck, also known as groundhog, should be handled in accordance with the general rules for game in the field. The blood should be drained, and the entrails removed and the body cavity wiped clean. When hung for 48 hours, they are ready to the skinned and cooked.

Woodchuck meat is dark, but mild flavored and tender. It does not require soaking; however, many people like to soak it overnight in salt water. If the woodchuck is caught just before he begins his winter sleep, there is an insulating fat layer under the skin. Remove excess fat. remove 7 to 9 “kernels” (scent glands) in the small of the back and under the forearms. Parboil the meat of older animals; cook by recipes calling for chicken or rabbit.
