Post Comments captcha now fixed

While doing some checking on the WordPress server here, I figured out that since Google changed the reCAPTCHA back-end, I needed new reCAPTCHA keys!  This broke the ability to leave comments.  Oops.

This should now be fixed, and it looks like comments are working once again.  Sorry about that, folks.

Yesterday’s activities at the Military Recruiting Station

Yesterday’s activities.Guarding-01

Now, why was I doing this?  Notice the sign to my immediate right.  It says NO WEAPONS permitted.

That’s right, our military recruiters are forced to work in a GUN FREE ZONE.

And we all learned how that worked out in Chattanooga, TN…when a terrorist decided to shoot and kill them.

Will our elected officials finally learn that our military members are…THE MILITARY??  And that they do in fact need guns for their defense?

Even the most virulent antis–Sarah Brady, Josh Sugarmann, Dianne Feinstein, etc.–say that the military and police need guns!  Yet they disarm our troops when they’re the most exposed!  They disarm them…even on their own military installations.

Guarding-04Not the best picture, but here you can see the problem.

Well, since they’re sitting ducks and thus cannot have armed guards…I decided to become one.

This was inspired by the fellow in Winchester, VA that started doing it.  Thanks to him, who prefers that his name not be used, for the idea.  And yes, as long as you don’t actually go inside armed, it is perfectly legal to do this.  And the recruiters appreciate it.

We need to stop any copycat-wannabes, folks.  If you have the time, and a gun, then I strongly encourage you to do likewise in your area.  Don’t let another tragedy happen in your town.


Finally got “Subscribe” button working


Learning WordPress seems to be an ongoing thing.  🙂  Several of you have been asking a couple of questions:

  1. Where’s the “Subscribe” button?
  2. What’s your RSS feed?

Just this evening, I figured out how to do that in WordPress, and so they’re now on the top right of the main site.  Sigh…a systems engineer’s learning is never done….

Getting used to running my own WordPress server, and iTunes connectivity

One of the neat things about being a systems engineer is that you’re always learning new stuff. Information Technology never stands still.

You’re seeing an example of it here, right now, with this new WordPress server. Up until recently, I’d never worked with WordPress or any other Weblogging or podcasting software. Gotta say, it’s a handful! But it’s fun.

One of the (many) things I’m figuring out how to do is get this new box to reconnect with the existing iTunes feed. Once I do, iTunes listeners will once again start getting notifications when a new episode comes out. I am definitely working on this.

Hmm…I wonder what Steve Jobs would think of this podcast…? 🙂

The Liberal’s Gun Corner is BACK!

In light of the closing-down of the Gun Rights Radio Network (GRRN), we decided to continue this podcast, the Liberal’s Gun Corner, on our own Web site. That means I’m getting to learn how to use WordPress, but since I’m a systems engineer, this is proving to be a fun project. This should also reduce times for episodes to appear.

I’d like to publicly thank Mark “Mr. GRRN” Vanderberg for starting the Gun Rights Radio Network and running it for all the years that he has. Without him, I would never have even considered doing a podcast like this one.

Cowboy T Guest on GRRN Bar Stool Discussion Live

Cowboy T (member here) has accepted a invitation to join Doc Wesson from the Gun Nation Podcast & Mark Vanderberg from Gun Rights Advocates Podcast on the GRRN Bar Stool Discussion Live. It’s a joint show that the two hosts do together on a biweekly basis Live.

So Far Positive

So far we have received mostly positive feedback about moving forward with the Liberal Gun Corner podcast.

If you don’t know what were talking about you can find the post about the idea for the show at the Gun Rights Radio Networks main website.
