President, And Congress Fails

If one of the main duties of the President is to prepare the federal budget with the approval of Congress, and he doesn’t, then who or what holds him accountable to do his basic duty and responsibility? And I’m not even talking about protecting and defending the Constitution. That’s another subject.

A household makes a budget, a business makes a budget, the country has made budgets up until the Obama administration. So why does Congress continue to pass Continuing Resolutions instead of insisting on a budget that Congress can pass?

Is it too much to ask that the President do his job? How about this for a solution, don’t pass anything else until a budget passes Congress. Zip, zero, nada. They can bellyache all they want about draconian BS and the sky is falling rhetoric. If he has to be forced to do his job, then so be it. What’s wrong with that?

A lack of leadership at the top does not excuse everyone below. All of them took the same oath.

Busy Day At The Shooting Range

In celebration of Gun Appreciation Day, I went to the Escambia River Gun Club shooting range to get some practice. My guest and I had a great time. We both decided we needed to hit the range more often than once or twice a year.

Coincidentally, the Club was conducting a CWP (Concealed Weapon Permit) class too. It was a pretty good size class with 42 people getting expert training from 21 qualified trainers. I was pleasantly surprised to see so many women getting qualified. It’s a beautiful thing.

I can’t speak for all gun clubs, but this one offers CWP training, and they take it seriously. If you’re thinking of getting the training to qualify for a conceal carry permit, this is an excellent place to go. The CWP class is a few hours at the range, and a few hours in a classroom setting. Much more than you will get at say, the gun show CWP class. Check out their website for dates and details.

Since there was so much going on at the range today, I grabbed some pictures.
