Kilted to Kick Cancer update

Sorry I've not been keeping you up to date on the KTCK drive. I don't get out much so my opportunities to get pictures while kilted are limited. I may go on e amedia run tomorrow, so I'll have lots to show.

Here's what I've done so far ... remember to go to and select Team Packetman!

Ahoy! It's that time of year again!

Yes, it's been a long time!

And yes, I'm still ambivalent about blogging ... it seems Facebook is much more convenient. Still trying to decide ...

But to the subject; it's time for the Kilted to Kick Cancer drive to raise money for prostate and testicular cancer research. As my dad is a survivor, it's kind of near to my heart even t hough I've raised nearly no money the last drives I've participated in.

This year, that will change!

If you're interested, please go to to get the details of participating. I don't even know what kind of prizes Kelly (at The Ambulance Driver Files) but I'm sure they're nice, and worth the effort.

Last year, the drive raised over $15,000: we can do better!

Education bleg ...

Yesterday, a local radio host went shooting with one of the stations' advertisers and by his account, he had a great time.

But this radio host, in spite of being a claimed second amendment 'supporter', he repeats a LOT of misinformation* from the Hollywood school of firearms knowledge.

So here's the challenge: You've got one hour at a private firing range, with any firearms you choose and any training aids you might need.

What is your syllabus for taking an uneducated (or mal-educated) individual like a radio host or reporter to a point where they're not an idiot about firearms or firearms laws?** Is an hour enough? What training aids would you want ( caliber charts, representative rounds for comparison, demonstrations set up, etc)?




*He's said that a .410 out of a Taurus Judge would 'knock someone back 15 feet', that another chamber in said Judge could be loaded with a kevlar-piercing bullet, that the 9mm is a 'big' bullet, .50 cal rifles are designed to shoot people through concrete blocks, and other jewels that only Hollywood could believe.

**Keep in mind that this training should be such that the individual could no longer report about firearms the way reporters typically do unless they're being willfully misleading.

Withholding your vote ...

... will it work?
If you want to extract the occasional concession for a Republican, fine. But the only way is to make withholding your vote your default position. Let them pander in deed, not just word to earn your case by case transnational support. 
This is a long post ... and sort of rantish. And the comments, geez the comments. I still can't believe how many people really think the GOP is salvagable.

It's not.

But they do make a good point about how withholding your vote advances the conservative cause. I have the answer.

It involves not withholding your vote, but voting for someone who can be identified as Not being the current GOP. Someone like, NOTA.

Someone like ... Not Another Moderate Republican (NAMR).

You see, if the party can't see definitively how many votes they lost by foisting another squish on the electorate, then they'll never change.

I've been thinking a lot ...

... about the NFA.

I had subscribed to the comments on a post at The Truth About Guns (hold your fire!), there was another one yesterday and I went back over them. Here are some thoughts (especially now that the ATF has fucked up and issued stamps for new Form 1's):

DrewM point out how ...

... liberals eventually win:
This is how liberals win. They spend decades trying to get something and conservatives stop fighting against it and start trying to “make it work” six months later. There’s no longer any argument about whether or not we should be doing what liberals want, just how we should be doing it. 
That's the argument that the GOP does not want to make, yet it's the one that must be made.

We are so fucked.

Vox is famous ...

... for stating the not-so-obvious:
Of course it's "fucking crickets". The legitimate protest is not being conducted by their people. "American citizen" is now as meaningless a term as "citizen of the world" or "member of the human race". The "darkies" in Ferguson who are, quite rightly in my opinion, protesting the latest murder of one of their own by the badge gang, have absolutely nothing in common with the armed, civilized freedom fighters who successfully withstood the federal forces at the Bundy ranch.
From a historical perspective, the 'vibrancy' that is now America cannot stand. The events in Ferguson are proof.

Aaron's monthly opportunity ...

Enter, maybe win.

I must apologize ...

... to my loyal readers (both of them!).

In my recent dearth of posting I find myself in a real funk about current events. With the exception of the recent DC decision (congratulations to Alan Gura), our current political climate is at a dead end.

Despite our gains, nothing changes.

If gun rights gets a win, the anti-gunners continue to agitate for more control, lying all the way. Yes, we won one in DC, but there are still states where you must get permission to exercise an enumerated right (FOID cards). And those states will fight tooth and nail to keep those requirements.

The longer I live and the more I hear, the more convinced I am that we stopped shooting waywardpoliticians much too soon.

I noticed yesterday ...

... that NBC didn't report on the DC Court decision that purchasers of insurance from federal exchanges aren't eligible for subsidies.

I guess they can put their fingers in their ears and sing 'la la la la la' with the best of them.
