The Bloviator: Sex, Drugs, Fraud, Suicide, Murd...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

1923: Faced with impending personal and political scandals (corrupt cabinet members, drinking, gambling, failing health made worse by a quack physician, blackmailers attempting to exploit his numerous affairs and bastard children, murders, and suicides), President Warren G. Harding embarks on a cross-country train trip, from Washington D.C. to Alaska, in an effort to rehabilitate his chances for re-election - something he is unsure he even wants.But the GOP have lost faith in Warren. However, they have taken a liking to the idea of running the first-ever female president: Florence, his smart, and ambitious wife. After all, it had been Florence who had spearheaded the innovations that not only got Warren elected in 1920, but which are still used today: the creation of solicitation-telephone calls, celebrity endorsements, photo-ops, news reels, radio ads, direct marketing...and it was Florence who is both the brains of the outfit, and the star of this show. Harding is simply the handsome, good-natured, overly-trusting, face.Based on the true, last (and unbelievably bizarre) six months in the life of America's 29th President, The Bloviator tells the story of sex, drugs, scandals, blackmail, murder, suicides - and the presidency. The Bloviator is a "fiction fueled by fact" in that while some elements are constructions, they are well with-in the plausible, and probable, range of the facts.The Bloviator is an epic; a massive and sprawling work; history as absurdity, as if it were being filtered through a cracked prism - but the prism is not cracked. Most of the story told here is unbelievably, incredibly, based on true events. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Cuddy.

Selfhood and U.S. Democracy
31,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Democracy depends on an informed and mature population and will not survive in a society that doesn't understand itself in the context of the modern world. It is precisely this lack of self knowing that creates a culture easily manipulated by fear, lies and mass marketing. Muesing-Ellwood suggests we grow up, shift our life focus from 'having' to 'being,' heal ourselves and in so doing nurture the democratic essence of the body politic. Susan Bright Poet, author of The Layers Of Our Seeing, Breathing Under Water, Next To the Last Word, House Of the Mother, and Tirades And Evidence Of Grace Selfhood and U.S. Democracy is an outstanding accomplishment that finds freedom and liberty grounded in our own selves. Margaret A. Buser Author of A Trip Back to the Great Depression In these economic times where everything is unsure: personal, professional, even our basic belief systems are being questioned and tested, Selfhood and U.S. Democracy presents a process by which we can begin to trust ourselves against a solid foundation of selfhood.
