Genesis cover

On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.

The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit.

The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs." --San Antonio Express-News

Finding out what’s in it: Democratic senators (who voted for it) have joined Republicans to call for the delay or cancellation of an Obamacare tax on medical equipment.

Maybe if these idiots had read the damn bill before they passed it we wouldn’t have this problem. But then again, this is the quality of senators the American people want in charge of our country. I read this and weep.

    Democrat John Convers said it ” I don’t have the time or the team of lawyer to read and understand these bills”.

    A 2700 page bill is about confusion and overload.

    Our political class and leadership are in the process of delivering the people of America to a state of control (socialism) which must include

    the the dimminshing or the ellimination of the Cnstitution.

    The Constituion is the counter balance to the worst nature of man, not the best nature of man.

    Leadership, of any party, is always the enemy of the Constitution, they are human, it is their nature, they need to control the people, hense

    the founders wrote the Constitution as the counter balance to this natural tendency.
