From the Desk of John Rourke – December 5th, 2014

I am looking forward to watching Atlas Shrugged: Who is John Galt when it comes out on DVD. I have seen Part I and Part II numerous times and really enjoyed them. Interesting is when Atlas Shrugged Part I first came out in 2011 I thought it was an accurate representation of what it could be like in 15 years or so. When Part II came out in early 2013 I watch Part I and Part II together and had a revelation: This stuff is happening right now just in smaller amounts.

So – Michael Sam says he is not in the NFL because he is gay. I predicted this would happen if he was not successful. Seems people struggle to deal with failure and are quick to point fingers at others rather than face the reality that they may be responsible. All I know is the reason I was not a successful Chippendale dancer was I was just too good looking and the other guys were jealous.

The State of Florida approved a holiday display in the Capital from a Satanic Temple. I am not making this up.  Wonderful.

John Boehner – Speaker of the House – is an idiot. He continues to disregard the blatant desires of the Republican and Tea Party constituents and act like a RHINO. Stand for something Boehner!!! I am thinking the Constitution and the American People.

I am surprised by the number of people who do not have a battery powered AM/FM radio at home. In their car? Sure. Such a simple communication device that many of us more “mature” folks grew up listening to. Like flashlights, candles, and extra food – an AM/FM radio  should be a basic prep.

  1. Hey, enjoyed lunch today, of course I had my usual. I saw where Michael Sam made his comments. Well if he didn’t SUCK at football, then he would still be playing. Yeah, he was awarded defensive player of the year in his last year in college, what about the three previous years? There are many players who win accolades in their sport that don’t even get drafted, so quit your whinning.
    Agree, how many people have AM/FM radios besides what’s in their radio. Better yet, who has AM/FM/SW radios that are portable? I suspect that if there is a collapse of the American media during a SHTF situation, your only news may come from overseas o via a messenger.
    BTW, Boehner should have been voted out as house speaker years ago. People don’t want bi-partisanship, they strictly oppose Obama and his agenda.

  2. I heard about Florida, just about puked! As I have said before, what have we become? I’m going to be 51 and my o my how we have changed.
