Liebie's Random Ramblings

Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined. — Patrick Henry

Doing Your “Business” When You Carry

One of the hard thing when you are a woman trying to conceal carry is trying to go to the bathroom. It may sound kind of stupid to you guys who just have to stand there and whip it out, although you if you have to shit then welcome to our world. There is just not a good way to go comfortably while trying to make sure you don’t expose your weapon and freak some liberal out in the stall next to you. Or worse yet, dropping or forgetting your gun. I usually have mine in a holster on my belt. When I sit the weight of the gun obviously causes a problem. Rather than unholstering it, I fasten the belt around my thighs until I’m done. This doesn’t work if I have to hover. Here is an article from The Well Armed Woman with a little bit of helpful advice on the subject.

I’m Baaaaack!

I had to take a little break from this blogging thing. Took a little longer than I thought DOH! It’s amazing how quickly time goes by as we get older. I swear it was just Christmas about 2 weeks ago! Time just got away from me. Not sure if anyone missed me or not (probably not) but that’s OK. I will try to find some interesting stuff to throw on here once in a while. Have a nice day/evening/night!

The Constitution Song

Star Spangled Banner

When it comes to the national anthem I’m a bit of a softie.  It will usually bring a little tear to my eye.  I guess I just respect the fact that it took so much for so many people to get it started and keep it going, and saddens me that there are so many forces in place trying to ruin it all.  I know I was blessed to be born here.

Here is an awesome version of the Star Spangled Banner.  I hope you enjoy it.

Backyard Chickens

We have chickens.  Raised from babies, fed them, fixed up some wounds (tape doesn’t stick to feathers!).

They really aren’t that hard to take care of.  A good coop, healthy food and water.  They have a fenced area but have eaten all the grass.  Once in a while we let them out in the yard to get some greens.  We give them scraps from the kitchen – left over veggies from dinner, peelings from cucumbers, carrots, potatoes.  They really love grape tomatoes.  We’ve actually spoiled them.

Here’s a video of our girls.  Please forgive the cheesy narrative by me.

100 Posts!

Random Quotes From Wise Men

No matter how worthy the cause, it is robbery, theft, and injustice to confiscate the property of one person and give it to another to whom it does not belong. — Walter Williams

Every time that we try to lift a problem from our own shoulders, and shift that problem to the hands of the government, to the same extent we are sacrificing the liberties of our people. — John F. Kennedy

The recurrence of periods of depression and mass unemployment has discredited capitalism in the opinion of injudicious people. Yet these events are not the outcome of the operation of the free market. They are on the contrary the result of well-intentioned but ill-advised government interference with the market. — Ludwig von Mises, Middle-of-the-Road Policy Leads to Socialism

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.— Thomas Jefferson

I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. — Benjamin Franklin, On the Price of Corn and Management of the Poor; 29 November 1766

Today, wanting someone else’s money is called ‘need’, wanting to keep your own money is called ‘greed’, and ‘compassion’ is when politicians arrange the transfer.— Joseph Sobran

The welfare state is not really about the welfare of the masses. It is about the egos of the elites. — Thomas Sowell

We must not permit our respect for the dead or our sympathy for the living to lead us into an act of injustice to the balance of the living. I will not attempt to prove that Congress has no power to appropriate this money as an act of charity. Every member upon this floor knows it. We have the right as individuals to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right to appropriate a dollar of the public money. — David Crockett

Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom. — John F. Kennedy

Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined. — Patrick Henry

Gun Salesman Review

We’re probably going to the gun show tomorrow and I’m looking forward to identifying the sales types.  I never really thought about it but he’s right; old fart, douchebag, commando.

You really have to be careful.  No different that buying a car.  Sometimes it’s hard to tell if they know what they are talking about of if they work under the “If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit” premise.  There’s a lot of bullshitters in the gun world.  I’m glad that I’m not looking for anymore guns.  Now I can just mess with them!
