    @Don Alaska
    Absolutely! One of the books which in my later life changed a lot of the ways I think regarding overlording governmental agencies, and how they affect simple folks going about their daily affairs. It is woven around accurate description of numerous little-known governmental actions, such as "Hooverville", the 1986 Miami FBI shoot-out, Waco, Ruby Ridge, and many others, judiciously researched for accuracy to show the side never revealed by media. This is done by using a fictitious family with a legendary military past.

    When being written, friends and advisors recommended that Ross never publish the book. Indeed, threats on his life followed publication.

    Ah, so you agree with old sage advice of: If at first you do not succeed......use a bigger hammer! :)

    If you're serious about what you're doing, you're going to want something like this. I used a mallet when I worked for Hoerner-Waldorf and Champion. Of course, I wasn't pounding nails. If I needed a hammer, it was to force something to move. Plus, my mallet was weighted well so that I could spin it and catch it on the handle when things were running smoothly.

    @Ken Anderson "catch it on the handle when things were running smoothly."

    And if they weren't?

    If they weren't, I wouldn't have time to play with my mallet.

    @Ken Anderson - I'd forgot about the mallet - I do love a good mallet, you can get a lot done with a mallet
    I have one which I shall seek out, just to look and admire my wooden mallet

    So, if a trim hammer is used for trim, a framing hammer to frame, a railroad sledge for railroads it follows that a dogwood mallet is for dogwoods. Pity anyone around named Jack when THOSE hammers get going.
