Between March and September of 1974, as Richard Nixon's presidency unraveled on national television, Bill Ehrhart, a decorated Marine Corps sergeant and antiwar Vietnam veteran, fought to retain his merchant seaman's card after being busted for possession of marijuana. He was also arrested on suspicion of armed robbery in New York City, detained on the Garden State Parkway for looking like a Puerto Rican revolutionary, and thrown out of New Jersey by the Maple Shade police. All of this occurred while the House Judiciary Committee conducted hearings on Nixon's impeachment. Busted shows an acute awareness of the ironies of these juxtapositions, as Ehrhart recounts a surreal cross-country journey in search of justice in a nation that has lost its way, betrayed by its leaders. Picking up the narrative of Vietnam-Perkasie and Passing Time, this third book in Ehrhart's Vietnam War trilogy is an exploration of the contradiction between law and justice in Nixon's America and an examination of why the wounds inflicted on the United States by the war are so slow to heal.

You can’t trust the Bible; it’s been translated too many times. Jesus never claimed to be the Messiah or God. Science has proven that miracles don’t happen (so the Bible is a fairytale). All religions basically teach the same thing (so all paths lead to God). Have you heard these? People say a lot of things about the Bible, God, Jesus, and Christianity that are simply not true. Like the guys on the popular cable show Mythbusters, it’s time we put these commonly held myths to the test. Following a brief summary of a recurring myth or misconception about the Christian faith, Fred explains why the myth is false and provides biblical and historical evidence in his response. He masterfully weaves together serious discussion with a touch of humor in his responses, all the while keeping the focus on the Scriptures. He avoids making fun of the people who hold views which differ from his own, but the views themselves are fair game. So grab a cup of coffee and find a cozy corner. Let’s do a little myth busting of our own.

America is headed for bankruptcy. This is not exaggeration, hyperbole, or alarmism. It is a true statement of a statistical fact. The definition of bankruptcy is a legally declared inability of a debtor to meet its obligations to its creditors. If you were born after 1980, congratulations, you belong to Generation Busted. In the 1960's your parents, or maybe your grandparents, liked to use the phrase "Never trust anyone over the age of thirty". If you belong to Generation Busted, it might be time to revive that distrust and suspicion of the economic and political establishment, because the generation gap that existed then is nothing compared to the generation gap that is looming ahead for you. Your parents and grandparents bankrupted you, and you don't even know it yet. I wrote this book for you, so you will know how and why it happened.

Busted is a poetic inspection into the rhetoric of things: governance, nation, hockey, language and liberty. A book of poems about the social forces that control us, and the way that we relate to those forces, and to each other. Through manifestos, fragments, lists, and other forms, this book examines the ways in which we knuckle under to the Powers that Be and the strategies that we develop to evade them. Razing the frames that still the possibilities of reason, nations, identity, morality and justice, it records, fragments and rails against the flaccid generic. This collaboration between two excellent, innovative writers is a kind of collage that examines the role that language plays in establishing relationships between ourselves and the institutions we create to govern us. A dazzling and revolutionary work that demands we never stop singing for liberty.
