• Great Start for Hooper’s War Pre-Orders

    Thanks to everyone for helping launch Hooper’s War pre-orders this weekend!

    The book is ranking high on Amazon, running alongside similar books from large-scale publishers. Without their advertising budgets, books like Hooper’s War from smaller publishers willing to take the risk of putting out an anti-war book depend on word of mouth. So thank you.

    RealClearBooks was nice enough to publish an excerpt.

    Kirkus Reviews had some good things to say — “Van Buren doesn’t provide simple answers, and readers are left with the understanding that decisions made in battle can be both right and wrong at the same time.”

    So take a moment and see what Hooper’s War is all about!

      The only thing War is good for are the movies and books it spawned. My father and his friends came back from the War with Japan with PTSD that was as devastating as a mortal head wound. It was amazing that they could function at all. At least the booze industry did just fine. Helps to forget.

      Let US not forget it is always the poor guys who pay for the rich. When Trumpie wants to prove he is not a pussy and attack North Korea, I expect him to be on the First Wave.

      Mayor Vaughn: I don’t think either of one you are familiar with our problems.
      Hooper: I think that I am familiar with the fact that you are going to ignore this particular problem until it swims up and BITES YOU ON THE ASS!

      Can dead people sue for plagiarism?

      Trump: Our military is building and is rapidly becoming stronger than ever before. Frankly, we have no choice!

      No choice. Poor US.

      Trump’s $54 billion increase will make US military budget higher than Russia’s and Japan’s military spending combined, accounting for one-third of China’s defense budget. Once approved by the Congress, the US defense spending will reach $603 billion, while non-military federal budget will be only $462 billion.

      Exactly… What would you expect after the military being cut to the bone for 8 years…. With a very powerful, dangerous enemy… That only wants to destroy everything…

      Here’s your sign…. Figure you were part of this…..


      And…. Here’s another reason why your state department is being defunded…….

      The logic in their statements is…. Just plain non-logic.

      Why does Trumpie hate America?

      “How is it Trump seems to care the least for the very folks who voted for him? Not a day passes that he doesn’t betray some of them.

      And instead of bombing another country, how about building our own with better bridges, railroads, highways and airports, how about tending to those who need jobs and homes, how about health care that really gets the job done?

      Then we might finally achieve the transformative moment when even Donald Trump at last becomes president for real. But don’t hold your breath. It is foolish to expect anything like this from a man-child who plays with America’s destiny as if it were a rag doll in his gilded crib.” — Bill Moyers

      Its not Trump who hates America….. Its you..

      Unless all of your wonderful comments about America and its people are some sort of weird passive/ agressive relationship thing.


      Sorry that he has not been able to bring out his magic, touchy feely wand and make it all better.

      Maybe if some people, like you, would try supporting, or at least observing, instead of constant attacks…he might be able to accomplish a few things.

      The constant attacks do wear.
