As I said in the last journal, this weekend is our annuals Summer Solstice Festival for Saturday and Sunday, with lots of live music, great food and a lot of crafts for sale to raise funds for the volunteer fire department, and our library. So, come on out and visit our quaint little community.
I continue to work on my 3rd "Badge and the Cross" story, still entitled "Homeland Security", and also working on my notes for a couple other new books. It's what I do. I'm also attempting to talk my wife into writing, for she is a gifted writer and I doubt she needs an editor. I believe I've said this before, but I was informed years ago that every person has at least 3 books in them and a gifted writer is boundless.
Now let me hit the news sites for a bit. My official disclaimer remains the same, be wary of propaganda, false and misleading news, but I do try my best to check out the news sites I use. Please, if a lead in interests you, got to that news site and check out the whole story. When using such sites as Iran Herald, Moscow Times and other foreign sites, I my best to verify their stories through other sites. This also includes China's Global Times. But, as always I try to report on stories that might not be reaching the big American Media. Some of the stories have come out days later after the foreign papers/ news media reported on it. Be smart, use your judgement. So, there it is, my official disclaimer.

That's all the news for today, Folks. What really surprises me is that our Congress doesn't take any action to stop our tax dollars from being used in the various ways I've been reporting for sometime. We have a lot of tax payers out there that could use these funds to feed and house their families, pay for fuel and buy some new winter clothes. It does get kind of cold up here come December.
Across the globe, this last week, hundreds of thousands marched in favor of Gay Pride. No problem, this is their right and our country allows for such parades and protests. Even in Israel, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem hosted such marches. But, in some of the Middle East States, those identified as being homosexual, must hide their sexuality preference. For in places like Palestine, homosexuals are painfully hunted down and executed. Yet, people are against the Jews, who will only speak out against Gays, but they will not kill them. Yet, still these antisemitic people will praise the Palestinians over the Israeli. This really makes no sense. Death or life, a decision people over there must make, and yet these choose a faction that will round the gays up like cattle and send them to the slaughterhouses. Now our Bible speaks out against homosexuality, but we're not out killing them. At least not in my neighborhood or my state and country.
Now here is an odd thing about some of the Muslim men. They, but please, not all of them, but far too many from what I am able to understand, look upon sexual relationships with young boys as being acceptable and not as a homosexual act. I truly do not understand this.
Yes, I do not normally delve into such adult items, but I thought I should after reading and hearing of such things from people I trust to be truthful.
I believe this will be the only time I delve into this and if I offended anyone, I do apologize.
God Bless, BILL
