FALL BOOK SALE – New Releases 25% Off!

Consumer Watchdog’s Jamie Court, author of The Progressive’s Guide To Raising Hell: How to Win Grassroots Campaigns, Pass Ballot Box Laws, and Get the Change We Voted For, has been making the rounds in the media lately. He’s debated members of the Tea Party on live television, defended his organization’s Jumbotron advertisement in New York City’s Times Square, and tirelessly rallied progressives to his important cause.

“The Tea Party doesn’t have a monopoly on anger, progressives are mad as hell too,” says Jamie. “The Tea Party is asking us to turn the reins of government over to people who would destroy it and that’s insane. The power of the government is our collective will to deal with the corporate abuses at the heart of the 2008 election.”

Watch a video, below, of Jamie debating conservative singer and Tea Party member Pat Boone on Fox 11 News.

The Progressive’s Guide to Raising Hell By Jamie Court Change is no simple matter in American politics—a fact that Americans have recently learned well. Elections rarely produce the change they promise. After the vote, power vacuums fill with familiar values, if not faces. Promises give way to fiscal realities, hope succumbs to pragmatism, and ambition concedes to inertia. The old tricks of interest groups—confuse, diffuse, scare—prevail over the better angels of American nature.
The Sheer Ecstasy of Being a Lunatic Farmer By Joel Salatin Foodies and environmentally minded folks often struggle to understand and articulate the fundamental differences between the farming and food systems they endorse and those promoted by Monsanto and friends. With visceral stories and humor from Salatin’s half-century as a “lunatic” farmer, Salatin contrasts the differences on many levels: practical, spiritual, social, economic, ecological, political, and nutritional.
Chanterelle Dreams, Amanita Nightmares By Greg Marley Throughout history, people have had a complex and confusing relationship with mushrooms. Are fungi food or medicine, beneficial decomposers or deadly “toadstools” ready to kill anyone foolhardy enough to eat them? In fact, there is truth in all these statements. In Chanterelle Dreams, Amanita Nightmares, author Greg Marley reveals some of the wonders and mysteries of mushrooms, and our conflicting human reactions to them.
Masonry Heaters By Ken Matesz Masonry Heaters is a complete guide to designing and living with one of the oldest, and yet one of the most revolutionary, heating devices. A masonry heater’s design, placement in the home, and luxurious radiant heat redefine the hearth for the modern era, turning it into a piece of the sun right inside the home—and it is an investment in self-sufficiency and freedom from fossil fuels.
Adobe Homes For All Climates By Lisa Schroder and Vince Ogletree Contrary to stereotypes, adobe is perfectly adaptable for use in cold, wet climates as well as hot and dry ones, and for areas prone to earthquakes. With its efficient use of energy, natural resources for construction, and minimal effort for long-term maintenance, it’s clear that the humble adobe brick is an ideal option for constructing eco-friendly structures throughout the world.
