From the Desk of John Rourke – November 6th, 2017


The big protests last Saturday by Antifa turned out to be nothing. I am a tad surprised it was not a bigger deal but anticipated the whole thing was being exaggerated. Like the whole “Occupy Wall Street” faded out Antifa may follow suit.

My favorite time of year – November and December. I love Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.

I had a set schedule of posts for each week. Certain things were published certain days. I’ve had a lot of stuff going on and unable to keep that same pace. Last week missed the “From the Desk of….” on Thursday and Friday. This weekend I will be unable to work on the site at all due to a camping trip. Publication schedule will likely drop off some next week.

Finished reading the book This We Will Defend by C.A. Rudolph. Great series. Getting ready to start SHTF: Fight Like a Man by L.L. Ackers. As always whatever I am currently reading will be highlighted in the lower righthand corner of this website.
