Why is it that every time we think it can’t get any worse for Americans, this Presidential Administration embroils themselves in yet another controversy. Why not stick a sharp stick in the eye of every man and women that has served or is serving our great country on the battlefields of terrorism. Five committed Taliban Terrorists for one U.S. Deserter? Come on now does anybody believe after the Caribbean vacation that we just gave these five terrorists, they will just slowly fade away? Why it is anytime time this administration become embroiled in a scandal with political fallout, this administration does something to turn media attention away from that scandal? Can we say Alinski’s Rules for Radicals? Camouflage the VA Scandal because it reminds people that government run health care does not and will not work, releasing 5 of the worst terrorists every captured. What do you think?

"Breaking The Chains: African-American Slave Resistance"
“The compelling, provocative story of the resistance and courage of African slaves in their never-ending struggle for freedom…important history.” — USA Today
The first freedom paths taken by runaway slaves led to Native American villages. There black men and women found a red hand of friendship and an accepting adoption system and culture. The sturdy offspring of Black-Indian marriages shaped the early days of the fur trade, added a new dimension to frontier diplomacy, and made a daring contribution to the fight for American liberty. Early Florida history was determined by a powerfull alliance that fought the U.S. Army, Navy and Marines to a standstill for forty years.
Like other intrepid frontier people, these dark Americans braved every peril for a slice of the American Dream—freedom, a safe home, family happiness and a piece of one’s own land. In the chronicles of the Americas their long, arduous quest for freedom is still a neglected chapter.
Through careful research and rare antique prints and photographs, this book reveals how black and red people learned to live and work together in the Americas to oppose white oppression. Here is an American story that reveals a little-known aspect of our past and shatters some myths.
“This book will force many readers to reexamine their assumptions about American history… Young readers will be fascinated and better informed for having experienced this book,” wrote School Library Journal. Striking photographs highlight this unknown heritage.”
— Black Child Magazine, February/March 1997
