From the Desk of John Rourke – August 24th, 2017


Trump made a 77-minute speech in Arizona. I listened to some of it and while predictable – it was very good. Outside law enforcement was pelted with rocks and water bottles. That was also quite typical as the snowflakes began to melt.

Also at the “protest” in Phoenix, the John Brown Gun Club showed up armed with AR’s and Ak’s professing to the media they were there to stand up for the violent protesters against “white supremacists”.

If you haven’t heard ESPN removed an announcer for a football game because his name is “Robert Lee” – afraid some might be offended as his name matches that of a Confederate General.

People – this is a perfect example of political correctness gone WAY TOO FAR.

Entities such as BET (Black Entertainment Television) disturb me. In a world where so many call for equality and fairness – to have a television channel purposely segregate an entire race is just wrong. Now – I believe in freedom of speech and people, for the most part, should be able to do what they want if they do not hurt anyone else but come on. If the WET (White Entertainment Network) were to be created those supporting BET would freak.

Apple picking season is almost here – at least in my area. Always enjoy taking a trip to the North Carolina mountains and walking through rolling hills of an apple orchard.
