Since my last weekly recap, I’ve spent more time working on my next fiction novel than I have in following news of the day. That in mind, I ask a question: It is possibly to cover two weeks of work in a single weekly recap at BobMcCarty.com? Answer: It is, and I prove it today!
In a Jan. 12 post, I made the point that Americans deserve more facts about the activities at Guantanamo Bay and about the Oklahoma City Bombing and Boston Marathon Bombing. I can’t blame you if you struggle to grasp how the three might be connected, but I think you’ll get it after you read the article.
In a Jan. 17 post, I shared guest writer Paul R. Hollrah’s take on bloody massacres and “solutions” to the “Muslim problem,” some of which he describes as “totally useless and pointless” and others as “quite draconian.”
Due to a fly-there-drive-back three-day round-trip to South Texas, I produced little in the way of writing products online or offline Jan. 18-20. Upon returning home, however, I shared news about the courtroom portion of another Oklahoma City Bombing trial that ended recently in Salt Lake City federal court. Don’t feel bad if you find yourself among the millions of Americans unaware another trial was even taking place. Instead, read and share my Jan. 21 post and my Jan. 23 post mentioned in more details near the end of this recap.
After reading about Air Force Maj. Gen. James Post allegedly saying Air Force personnel committed treason when they exercised their right to free speech, I used the headline of a second Jan. 21 post to ask the question, Is Speaking Out in Favor of A-10 ‘Warthog’ Treasonous?
In a third Jan. 21 post, I shared another Amazon customer’s 5-star review of my just-released crime-fiction novel, The National Bet. You can read about the review under the headline, Reader Enjoyed The National Bet ‘From Start to Finish’.
In a Jan. 23 post, I hammered away at the subpar journalism taking place in my birth state of Oklahoma when it comes to covering the aforementioned Oklahoma City Bombing trial in Salt Lake City. Read about it under the headline, News Media Fails to Provide Thorough Coverage of Latest Oklahoma City Bombing Trial in Salt Lake City Federal Court.
Away from BobMcCarty.com, I’ve encountered numerous articles and Facebook status updates about the growing crop of Republican presidential hopefuls. In response, I’ve shared the link to another guest piece by Hollrah, a former two-time member of the Electoral College. Sadly, his facts seem to upset some of my fellow conservatives. You can read it where it appears under the headline, Ted, Bobby, Marco and Rick Share Something in Common. I’d love to hear your reaction.
That’s all for now! I hope you enjoy my work. Please buy my books to ensure it keeps coming! Thanks in advance!
