My father asked why my Winchester Model 70 was in 30-06, I answered because it worked, I had no real idea beyond the simple. Frank James talks about his semi-auto choice and what many will miss, is that for what he does and what he wants it works. I, having different experiences and needs, use my favorite calibers - and he shoots more than I. There seems to be some awe in the ignorance of folks that are intelligent and educated, Kevin Baker, covers it very well, but you have to read the whole thing and then off to visit another post, I have confidence that Darwin is true the species that adapts to the change is the survivor. Taxes, horror stories are real, are part of NFO's blog and doing the math will make your teachers proud.
Lots of stuff out there in cyberspace to make me smarter, but I am about to endanger the road with my gentle jogging. I will drop some more rifles into the Caravan and depart for Stevenson, Washington to look at a range for a September Appleseed. A few folks at a time, introduce them to safe and more accurate shooting and teach them the History of April 19th, 1775. Real revolutionary stuff they don't know as well as they should.
Already looking at 2011, for the increase in taxes and government control, family reunion and maybe the forty-fifth Ligonier Valley High School class reunion. See, I don't think that the election this year is going to change anything - the spots on the leopard? My son is coming to Washington for a triathelon, which will be cool, hope the daughter-in-law and grandson come, too. Yep, looking forward is a good thing.
For those that worry about the government, if it hasn't your consent then work against it or get inside of it and change it. Restoring the Constitution, and the ability of our elected officials to read it and understand it is one of those almost impossible tasks. If you were to compare the Holy Bible with the Constitution you would understand - having all the words in print, does not make men Holy. Even reading and understanding it won't make you Holy, if you obeyed all the laws and Holy days and had not Love you have missed the mark and fallen so short. The founding fathers of this nation were moral men, the government would work as long as they remained such. If you don't become a moral people and love better than you did yesterday you will have missed your first opportunity to make everything right (one person at a time).
