Class Day Today!!!! With Final Update

I'm currently sitting in the parking lot waiting for the gun range to open. We are taking our carry conceal class and test today. I got up early and fixed my hair and make-up. I girl needs to look good for a photo I'd that she's going to carry for the next 5 years. So I'm wearing Versace to the range. It's not the first time. I'll update you on the break.
2:00pm update
Having lunch now. The class has been interesting. I was the first person finished with the written test. Scored a 100%. I've always been. A good test taker though. Will update again after completing the range portion of the exam.
5:00pm update
We passed!! We passed!! Now we just need to get fingerprinted, send in our paperwork, and wait for the state. Time to start the countdown.
Final Update:
Well we are finally home. It was a long day, but it was certainly a good one. H&H Gun Range hosts a great class. They bring in an attorney to teach the legal portion of the class so that the students are able to ask any legal question they need to ask. That's a nice benefit as we had some unique legal questions. Now we just need to turn this mess of paperwork and goofy pictures over to the bureaucrats to play with. I hope to get my license before I'm 30.

Hardware Woes

Just so you are all aware how much I love you. I've been fighting with this whole blog thing all evening. It has become painfully apparent that my poor little clamshell is just not going to cut it. I am going to need a new laptop. I will be able to get this up and running from one of my desktops (probably the Linux machine). But this little guy is way out of its league. I think I will put it to bed for the night rather than throwing it through the sliding glass door which also needs replacing. This old Mac could do it if I were more patient. Tonight I'm not.

Blog Moving Update

I am hunting for a good web host. Any suggestions?

I Suddenly Felt 11 Years Old Again

I was browsing political news for blog material and found a story about John McCain making a list possible running mates. I pulled up the link and was drawn immediately to the sidebar. I've taken the liberty of providing a screen shot so that you can experience it more like I did. And just to prove this isn't some Photoshop trickery, I employed my mad digital editing skills in drawing mustaches on the main article picture. I especially like the dandy purple one on McCain.

You can click on the picture for a better view of my silliness.
So I was completely distracted from McCain's VP list by a little blub about the New Kids On The Block. Apparently, they have gotten back together. I will admit that back in the day, I was a fan. I was also a pre-teen at the time. Thankfully they are looking far more heterosexual now.
Well, kind of. Honestly, as the die hard capitalist that I am, I hope this is a huge success. I still have some memorabilia from the first time around. Hopefully it will go up in value, and I can make a fortune on eBay. I have a giant button with a picture on Donnie Wahlberg around here somewhere. Somewhere there may be a hat and a silk wall hanging. Scary huh?

If the tour comes through my area, maybe I'll get a silly group of chick friends together to go see them. Now we are old enough for alcohol. Their concerts are bound to be more entertaining that way.

Not Moved Yet, So Here's Some Gun Control Information

I've done nothing more today in regards to moving the blog, but I didn't want to leave you hanging with no content. I got this in an email from my great aunt. Lots of very interesting and thought provoking bits there.

A Little Gun History Lesson

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated


China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million 'educated' people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.


It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results are now in:

Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent

Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent

Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!

It will never happen here? I bet the Aussies said that too!

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind him of this history lesson.

With Guns...........We Are "Citizens".
Without Them........We Are "Subjects".

During W.W.II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED !

Note: Admiral Yamamoto who crafted the attack on Pearl Harbor had attended Harvard U 1919-1921 & was Naval Attaché to the U. S. 1925-28. Most of our Navy was destroyed at Pearl Harbor & our Army had been deprived of funding & was ill prepared to defend the country.

It was reported that when asked why Japan did not follow up the Pearl Harbor attack with an invasion of the U. S. Mainland, his reply was that he had lived in the U. S. & knew that almost all households had guns.

Interesting. It had the typical note about forwarding it on to people, but I thought posting was more efficient. Besides, I'm a non-forwarder. I've already racked up more bad luck than I am likely to out live. I'll never win that e-mail lottery either. For the record, I think Jesus still loves me even if I don't send the e-mail to everyone in my address book.

Personally, I'd rather not be rounded up and exterminated. They may come for my guns, but all they are getting is lead.

In other gun news today, I'm pissed off at a pencil pusher in the Oklahoma legislature. Apparently some pansy ass (or several), decided that guns on campus make their butts pucker so therefore circumvented the democratic process and kept this bill off the agenda thus killed it. I don't believe that's the end and will be looking into ways to resurrect it. It's one thing if something is voted down, but to be buried without consideration is an offense to us all.

Yes, I Can Take a Hint

And I'm an obedient Lucasite.
Have I mentioned lately how much I love your blog Jennifer? You are teh funneh.

I think you should switch off of Blogspot, get your own domain, and use Wordpress. It will enhance your quality of life. I'll even help you do it because I have mastered Wordpress.
-Rachel Lucas
Today, I bought the domain I will be moving soon. I will also be following the advice to switch over to WordPress. Blogger has taken good care of me, but I really need some more flexibility. I've got a little setup to do, but I will keep you posted.

Now, you can never accuse me of ignoring my loyal comment writing fans. Besides that, Rachel is way more popular than I and so I should be listening to her advice.
