From the Desk of John Rourke – May 8th, 2017

Had a pretty good weekend. Started writing an American Reformation scenario post to publish today and it got out of hand. What started as a short “what if” has turned into a “chapter”. Hope to finish it soon.

Just read an article discussing movements within multiple states to succeed from the Union. These states include California, Texas, Oklahoma, Maine, Utah, West Virginia, and New York’s Long Island. All for various reasons and with different levels of popularity there is an upward trend of interest.

I wish South Carolina would get added to the list.

When it comes to smartphones I am an Android guy. I picked up the new Samsung Galaxy S8 plus and so far love it. The NSA says I come in loud and clear.

From the “This is Complete Insanity” Files: A Middle School boy was suspended for 10 days for “liking” a picture of a gun on Instagram. Seriously. Not kidding. After meeting with the parents – and getting some negative publicity – the school canceled the suspension. Unbelievable.

Went to start testing the Freedom Ordnance FX9 I recently received from and found the range was taken by a local shooting club. I went down and watched and was impressed to find a man competing who had no arms! He shot with his feet. Much respect!!!

shooting, competition, no arms, feet, shooting with feet,
