From the Desk of John Rourke – August 7th, 2017


It’s interesting the number of people who have expressed their “dissatisfaction” with my stance on transgenders in the military. I am being told that they have lost transgender friends in combat. Well – it is what it is. I’m offended by a great many things and the disallowance of transgenders in the military – or a Tweet – is not on the list. I should be asking them if they were offended all the years Obama didn’t allow them to serve either.

Watched the movie The Circle starring Tom Hanks and Emma Watson. It was very good. The movie provides a realistic glimpse into the not too distant future where technology – offering safety and security – invades peoples lives to the point that NOTHING is private.

I think people are getting a little carried away with attaching too much crap to there guns……

The garden is almost over. Okra continues to produce as well as a single dying cucumber plant and one zucchini plant. Will pull almost everything up this week and throw in the compost bin.

Hope everyone has a great week….
