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

The day of reckoning looms closer all the time: On Tuesday the Treasury Department began using pension funds to keep the federal debt below the debt limit.

This action is, at this time, only a stop-gap until the debt ceiling is raised $1.2 trillion as per Obama’s request. Nonetheless, it signals the federal government’s increasingly dire debt problems.

  • “OUR” SATANIC “CORPORATIVISM”!
    Most Respectful, submit This Most Patriotic and Most Faithful Message also personally and specially to a Nationally Significant Patriotic Friend. Thank you
    OUR “MOST BELOVED” AMERICA’S MOST CROOKEDLY EVIL ANTI-AMERICAN “CORPORATIVISM”!
    Most Respectfully, This Most Earnest Patriotic Appeal was also submitted to almost all of The Heads of Our Churches and to almost all of The Presidents and Provosts of Our Universities – “Personally”!
    UNIVERSAL PSEUDO-CORPORATISM!!!
    This Most-Loving Prayer was also addressed and mailed personally to all Top Politicking and Religious Leaders of The World!
    THE WORST CRIME, EVER, AGAINST ALMIGHTY GOD’S HUMANITY – FOREVER?
    (Also Truly Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King’s Most Patriotic Legacy!)
    The Nucleus of Our Whole World’s Ever-Growing Suicidal Nuclear Crisis is created by No Other than The Most Defrauding and Most Greedy Ultra-Conservative and Ultra-Libertine Politico-Religionism Everywhere – Universally! Our Whole World has No True Religion Anywhere!
    The Nucleus of The Most-Dominant Over-Ambition of Our Universal True Atheism is none other than The Most Voracious Globally Inhuman “Corporatist” Economic Exploitation: all by The Most Extreme Global Disregard for THE MOST FUNDAMENTAL BASIC UNIVERSAL HUMAN LITERACY and also for THE MOST FUNDAMENTAL UNIVERSAL GOOD-SAMARITAN BASIC HEALTH INSURANCE. THESE TWO TOGETHER INDEED CONSTITUTE ALMIGHTY GOD’S TRUE UNIVERSAL MOST ELEMENTAL DEMOCRACY’S MOST VITAL AS MOST ESSENTIAL MEANS FOR ALMIGHTY GOD’S TRUE INDIVIDUAL EQUAL OPPORTUNITY – TO REACH THOSE TWO MOST INDISPENSABLE ALMIGHTY GOD’S INDIVIDUAL ELEMENTAL HUMAN GIFTS (RIGHTS), NO MORE, NO LESS!!!
    All of Our Vast World-Wide HUMANITY Perpetually Shackled – AS ILLITERATE AND INFIRM “HUMANITY” – of course including Our Western World, is ever more and more so “CRUCIFIED” as threatened with impunity by instilling in them “OUR” Religionist-Inculcated Utmost Fear of “GOING TO HELL” if they have “NO FAITH” – that is, if disobedient to “Our” Politico-Religionist False “Leadership – as just like telling them “THEIR ‘HEAVEN’ IS ‘LIVING’ IN OUR SATANIC EXPLOITATION”!
    Our Totally Politico-Religionist Western World has always even tried to expand Our Most Voracious Greedy “Corporatism” to Our Islamic Eastern World’s “Friendly” Governments, but I most strongly suspect that Islamic Religionism has an opposite but Equally Religionist Inhuman Self-Defense: when Our Western “Corporatist” Inhuman Intervention reach Their Eastern Critical Religionist Level – as in Our Unending Warring Perplexity with “Their Islamic” World – Their Islamic Religionist Counteracting General “’Inspiration’-To-Go-To-Heaven” is no other than Their Ultra-Terrorist “Salvific” Individual Self-Immolation!
    ALL OF THESE, FOR SURE SO FAR, ARE THE MOST IRREFUTABLE PORTENDING SYMBOLISM OF A MOST-CERTAIN-GLOBAL-NUCLEAR-ARMAGEDDON: THERE IS NOT THE SLIGHTEST DOUBT ABOUT THE CERTAINTY OF THE WHOLE WORLD’S TOTAL HOLOCAUST!!! MAY WE REALLY AND TRULY PRAY, SO THAT WE ALL – TRULY AND SOLIDLY HONEST AMERICANS – REALLY ENABLE GOD THE ALMIGHTY TO BLESS (SAVE) OUR MOST BELOVED TRUE AMERICA!!! OTHERWISE, ANY OTHER “CRIME” OR”ABORTION” IS AN INNOCENT BY-PRODUCT!!!

  • “OUR” SATANIC RELIGIONISM!
    Most Reverent, please submit This Most Patriotic and Most Faithful Message, also personally and specially, to a Nationally Significant and Patriotic Friend. Thank you!
    “OUR MOST BELOVED AMERICA’S” MOST CROOKEDLY SATANIC ANTI-AMERICAN POLITICKING AND RELIGIONISM!
    Most Reverent, This Most Earnest Patriotic Appeal was also submitted to All The Presidents of Our American Universities, and to Their Provosts – submitted to both personally!
    UNIVERSAL RELIGIONISM AND POLITICKING!
    This Most Loving Prayer is also addressed to All Top Religious and Politicking World Leaders – Most Faithfully!
    This is all and only about The Most Criminal World-Wide RELIGIONISM AND POLITICKING EVER!
    All that Our Whole Wide World has ever needed, and still presently needs foremost and more than ever, is A TRULY AMERICAN NATIONAL INCORRUPT REEVALUATION!
    “MERRY CHRISTMASTIMES !!!” “HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!” “HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!” “HAPPY NEW CENTURIES!
    ALMIGHTY GOD’S TRUE NUCLEAR DEMOCRACY SHALL NEVER EXIST IN OUR AMERICA UNTIL BOTH TRUE DEMOCRACY’S UNIVERSAL MOST BASIC FUNCTIONAL LITERACY, AND UNIVERSAL MOST BASIC TRUE“GOOD SAMARITAN” HEALTH INSURANCE ARE CONSTITUTIONALLY COMPELLED AS MOST CRIMINALLY PUNISHABLE! THAT IS, UNTIL OUR INSATIABLE ULTRA-WEALTHY CORRUPT “CORPORATISM” GIVE A TRUE EXAMPLE FOR SUCH A SACRED UNIVERSAL HUMAN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY – FOR THE SAKE OF OUR MOST EXPLOITED AS MOST SUFFERING ILLITERATE AND POOREST HEALTH-UNINSURED AMERICAN BROTHERS!
    Almighty God did not write His Bible just to “Inspire” The Implacable Religionist “Sacrosanct” Church-Like Corporations of This World to use IT as toilet paper; that is, to use IT as Such a Globalized, Religionist, Materialist, PIOUSLY MUM, AND SO ULTIMATELY EQUALLY SUICIDAL-TERRORIST,SUBLIMINAL INHUMAN EXPLOITATION!
    Why ”THE TRULY UNIVERSAL CHURCH” – AS “FREE AND SEPARATE FROM THE STATE” – NEVER TAKE ALL OF THESE AS ITS TRUE DAILY PREACHING INITIATIVE – AS ITS TRUE RELIGIOUS LEADERS DID BEFORE???!!! BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT ANYMORE “THE TRUE SERVANTS OF ALMIGHTY GOD” (AS THEY SO FERVENTLY CLAIM) BUT OF THE GOVERNMENTAL “MOST COMFORTABLE” RAPACIOUS CORPORATIST MOST INHUMAN WORLD POLITICS OF EXPLOITAION!!!
    WHY ABSOLUTELY NOBODY SPEAKS ANYTHING – SPECIALLY AT THE MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION TIME – ABOUT DENOUNCING AND UPROOTING ONCE AND FOR ALL THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF OUR “AMERICAN” ILLITERACY AND LACK OF TRULY DEMOCRATIC UNIVERSAL “GOOD SAMARITAN” ALSO INDISPENSABLE MOST BASIC HEALTH INSURANCE!
    THE TRUTHFULLNESS EVER MISSING IN ALL OF OUR SUPER-POLITICAL SPEECHES, ALWAYS PRETENDING TO “HONOR” OUR MOST BELOVED AMERICA – AND MOST SORELY MISSING FOR OUR AMERICA’S SALVATION – IS THE TRULY POLITICAL, TRULY RELIGIOUS, AND TRULY PATRIOTIC DEMOCRATIC INSPIRATION!
    WHY ARE WE SO SILANTLY MOST OBSTINATE AND MOST ANTIPATRIOTIC!!!???
    MAY WE ALL TRUE AMERICANS ALWAYS TRULY PRAY SO THAT WE ALL TRUE SOLID AMERICANS REALLY ENABLE ALMIGHY GOD TO EVER BLESS (SAVE) OUR MOST BELOVED TRUE AMERICA!!!
    OTHERWISE, ANY OTHER “CRIME” OR “ABORTION” IS AN INNOCENT BY-PRODUCT!!!
