Paddy begins to insult Hariprasad for creating a ruckus for nothing. She accuses Antara for wearing expensive clothes belonging to her daughter when DK intervenes and sides Hariprasad. He even asks Nikhil to apologize to Hariprasad. DK then reveals the real reason for siding Hariprasad. He wanted to win his confidence so that he easily signs the papers for the land they want to acquire near the school. And Hariprasad has actually fallen in their trap! Hariprasad is extremely upset with Antara for going to the party in spite of him telling her not to go. She refuses to understand why all good people remain poor and the rich become richer.

In an era when special interests funnel huge amounts of money into our government-driven by shifts in campaign-finance rules and brought to new levels by the Supreme Court in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission-trust in our government has reached an all-time low. More than ever before, Americans believe that money buys results in Congress, and that business interests wield control over our legislature.

With heartfelt urgency and a keen desire for righting wrongs, Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig takes a clear-eyed look at how we arrived at this crisis: how fundamentally good people, with good intentions, have allowed our democracy to be co-opted by outside interests, and how this exploitation has become entrenched in the system. Rejecting simple labels and reductive logic-and instead using examples that resonate as powerfully on the Right as on the Left-Lessig seeks out the root causes of our situation. He plumbs the issues of campaign financing and corporate lobbying, revealing the human faces and follies that have allowed corruption to take such a foothold in our system. He puts the issues in terms that nonwonks can understand, using real-world analogies and real human stories. And ultimately he calls for widespread mobilization and a new Constitutional Convention, presenting achievable solutions for regaining control of our corrupted-but redeemable-representational system. In this way, Lessig plots a roadmap for returning our republic to its intended greatness.

While America may be divided, Lessig vividly champions the idea that we can succeed if we accept that corruption is our common enemy and that we must find a way to fight against it. In REPUBLIC, LOST, he not only makes this need palpable and clear-he gives us the practical and intellectual tools to do something about it.

List Price: $27.99
Your Price: $14.00- Home Front

In her bestselling novels Kristin Hannah has plumbed the depths of friendship, the loyalty of sisters, and the secrets mothers keep. Now, in her most emotionally powerful story yet, she explores the intimate landscape of a troubled marriage with this provocative and timely portrait of a husband and wife, in love and at war. 

All marriages have a breaking point. All families have wounds. All wars have a cost. . . .

Like many couples, Michael and Jolene Zarkades have to face the pressures of everyday life—children, careers, bills, chores—even as their twelve-year marriage is falling apart. Then an unexpected deployment sends Jolene deep into harm’s way and leaves defense attorney Michael at home, unaccustomed to being a single parent to their two girls. As a mother, it agonizes Jolene to leave her family, but as a solider she has always understood the true meaning of duty. In her letters home, she paints a rose-colored version of her life on the front lines, shielding her family from the truth. But war will change Jolene in ways that none of them could have foreseen. When tragedy strikes, Michael must face his darkest fear and fight a battle of his own—for everything that matters to his family.

At once a profoundly honest look at modern marriage and a dramatic exploration of the toll war takes on an ordinary American family, Home Front is a story of love, loss, heroism, honor, and ultimately, hope.

I first recorded this song back on 10/24/2008. The concept of this song is amazing but my execution of it the first time was sub par. I decided to remake it & give it the emphasis it deserved. Hope you enjoy the difference in my flow. ORIGINAL RECORDING – Lyrics: My inner feelings theyre so hard to vocalize/ you heard that gunshot that means Im ready to ride/ sittin outside/ cuz I got nothing better to do/ damn wishin this bubblecoat was bulletproof/ but it cant keep out the cold so I expect bullets to get through/ life is a game of dice and Ive yet to roll a lucky 7/ today I rolled 12 and that symbolizes my homies that went to heaven/ its never God that I question/ its this life that seems destined/ for pain/ no matter how much I pray/ but prayers a reflection/ of your souls intestines/ cant believe I had the guts to ask God to help me fuck Alexis/ lustful thoughts lead to evil ambitions/ Ive silenced so many people yet now I need someone to listen/ what made me laugh now makes cry/ but all this money was a malignant tumor that I thought was benign/ rolled again now I get snake eyes/ the animal that’s condemned to lay in the dirt/ similar to the stain I have on my shirt/ the other day I rolled by the church and paused for a second/ ponderin on my version of Gods life lesson/ just when Im close I get distracted by satans henchmen/ sent a girl with a big ass that rumbled fast/ that I wanted to cover with my own kind of dressin/ I love ass thats why I stay
