Second Amendment

Appropriate brag for the holiday...

I took my 11-year-old daughter to the range last month for the first time.  Once she got over her fear of the noise and flash, she demonstrated a knack for hitting the paper at about 5-7 yards. 

Her only remaining fear?  The ejecting shells from the semi-auto .22 she was using would bounce off the wall of the stall and back at her.  She wants to try a revolver next time.  And wants that 'next time' to be sooner rather than later.

That's my girl!

Looking Ahead

I must remember to dust myself more often...

...so, I haven't been writing anything.  Not that a lot of things haven't been happening, of course.  I think we're all quite aware of just how swimmingly the Second Great Depression is going so far.

The original point I was making with this blog...or at least intended to make...was to demonstrate how it was possible to disagree with someone without demonizing them.  A trait the outspoken Left was singularly incapable of during 8 years of "Bushitler" jokes and crying-wolf "Facism!"   It was suddenly "trendy" to make jokes about assassinating the President.

These days, I'm not feeling so civil.  The inaction of the President and his office during several crises--the Deepwater Horizon spill being but the latest--has been, at best, negligent.  The mass populist uprising of the Tea Parties seems poised to make their point at the ballot box in a few short months.

Unless, of course, the Black Panthers and SEIU get to control the ballots.  I, personally, have no fear of that.  King County here is all-mail voting.  Yep, even if I don't trust it, the ONLY way I have to vote is to put it in the mail...and hope it doesn't get misplaced in a warehouse somewhere.

Soapbox, ballot box, jury box.  These are the orderly means of addressing wrongs in our society.  I need to practice my soapbox more.
