              Lawful Abuse: How the Century of the Child became the Century of the Corporation (EPUB ebook)

              By Flynn, Robert

              A powerful indictment of America's abandonment of human beings, and children in particular, in favour of corporations, this account exposes the child labour, indentured servitude, and child slavery aspects that are undeniable parts of American history. Arguing that, in the wake o...f the election of Ronald Reagan, legislation began to support corporations at the expense of the American people, this book demonstrates how this nation's intellectual capital was squandered. Discussing how deregulation and lax enforcement caused unnecessary deaths to workers in many fields, this work argues that the number of deaths and disabilities to fetuses, babies, and children will only increase until voters decide to stop the destruction of America and its children.

              Holy Literary License: The Almighty Chooses Fallible Mortals to Write, Edit, and Translate GodStory (EPUB ebook)

              By Flynn, Robert

              An award-winning western novelist (North to Yesterday, Wanderer Springs) with decidedly liberal political leanings writes a spiritual autobiography unlike any other. The author grew up in a small west Texas town, attended seminary, became a war correspondent in Vietnam, and taugh...t creative writing and literature for 40 years at Trinity University in San Antonio. With a deep sense of the irony of his project, he sets out to explain how the Bible came to be, delving into historical misconceptions, errors in translation, political and cultural biases, as well as the editorial failings of the Bible's many authors - and yet, he arrives at a place of ultimate faith. Holy Literary License is not anyone's traditional Sunday School material, but contemporary, open-minded Christians will find the book both enlightening and inspirational - and at times, intensely humorous. Flynn, the author of Growing Up A Sullen Baptist, is known for his wry wit and his humane insight. This work is his masterpiece.

              The tangled relationships of Robert Flynn's award-winning novel Wanderer Springs surface again in Tie-Fast Country, this time centered around an elderly ranch woman, whose father raised her to be a cowboy, and her grandson, who doesn't know her and has been raised to hate her.Whe...n Chance Carter, general manager of a TV station in Florida, gets a telephone call that his grandmother's health is failing and that he must do something about her, he knows only that he is heir to a million-dollar ranch and that his grandmother may have killed his grandfather and the man who was perhaps his father. His idea of a Texas ranch comes from television and he does not know what he will have to do to slide Rista Wyler off her land and into a nursing home. Nor does he know that the only cowboy Rista has left is Pug Caldwell, an old man who has worked for her since he was a teenager and may want the ranch for himself.Reluctantly Chance leaves Florida behind, where he is in control of his own world, and also leaves Shana, the woman he loves but to whom he cannot quite commit. He finds himself more than a world away on the Texas ranch where Rista and Pug have thrown up barricades against intruders. He has no television, no phone, no contact with the outside world. And the food is monotonous and not very good.As Chance watches for certifiable signs of senility in Rista and plans what he'll say to a judge, she puts him to work mending fences and doctoring cows with Pug. In chapters that alternate between the past and the present, Rista reveals the truth of the tangled story of her life. Gradually she introduces Chance to people and events that his mother had distorted in the telling. He finds outwhy Rista still searches the ranch for the undiscovered grave of her aunt, killed by Indians; he comes to know his grandfather, Odis, and even his great-grandfather, Claris, men of different temperaments and different loyalties. And he learns about Stoddard, the newspaperman Rista loved but could
