Holster stuff.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 28th March 2008

But, we were absolutely certain….

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 27th March 2008

Again the data on global temperature trends contradicts Al Gore and the alarmists. If you read this blog somewhat regularly you know that the Global Warming issue is representative of the impact of fuzzy thinking accelerated by a Chicken Little news media.

So, here we are again, after years of absolute certainty that the earth is warming, finding evidence to the contrary.

Check out the latest findings.

Whack’m in the knee…

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 26th March 2008

Usually, I have a hard time reading Maureen Dowd’s columns cuz she raises my blood pressure, but she is a smart lady (even if I seldom agree with her.)

Today, her column includes speculation on a strategy Hillary Clinton may be using against Obama similar to Tonya Harding’s whack across the knees of her ice skating rival, Nancy Kerrigan in 1994 (to disable Nancy before the big competition).

Read this and see what you think.

Why is gas so expensive?

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 24th March 2008

Is it Exxon/Mobil’s fault? The Oil Cartels? Why is a barrel of oil well over $100?

Did energy really get that scarce? Did the value of a barrel of oil really go up that much?

Consider this: In the past seven years the dollar has plummeted to less than a 900th of an ounce of gold from the 265th of an ounce it was worth at the start of President Bush’s first term. It’s not the value of gold (or oil) that has gone up. It’s the value of the dollar that has gone down.

Look at the value of the dollar vs. the Euro compared to where it was several years ago.

Here’s the point. That $106 barrel of oil you hear so much about would cost $61 if the dollar value hadn’t declined so much. That $3.40 gallon of gasoline would be under $2.00 a gallon if the dollar hadn’t declined so much.  We live in a global economy and you can compare the value of a commodity like crude oil in different currencies and see that while the value of crude has in fact increased over recent years, it’s the value of the U.S. dollar that has caused much of the pain at the gas pump.

Who wants to tell me why the value of the dollar is down so much? I know that some of you out there know the answer and can explain it better than I can.

Let me hear from you. I think I know the answer, but I want to hear from you.

It’s warming, it’s cooling, it’s warming, it’s cooling…..

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 22nd March 2008

Global warming? Maybe not.  

Now aren’t you glad you didn’t buy Al Gore’s bogus story? The other side of the global warming debate is finally being heard.

This article says the earth has been cooling for several years now. You may enjoy this point of view given with an Australian accent.

Gotta do what to get a permit?

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 20th March 2008

India offers firearms permits for vasectomies.

A scheme that trades one male status symbol for another has achieved a large rise in the number of men undergoing vasectomies in a bandit-ridden region of central India.

Shivpuri district in the state of Madhya Pradesh, an overpopulated area renowned for its machismo culture, has started to offer fast-tracked gun licences for those who agree to be sterilised.

“This is a state with a high number of dacoits [bandits], where people like to keep rifles,” Manish Shrivastav, the administrative chief of Shivpuri and originator of the lateral thinking behind the plan, said. “It also has a low level of vasectomies because of a perceived notion of manliness. I decided to match that with a bigger symbol of manliness — a gun licence. It has been a success.”

The results are impressive: 139 men have undergone vasectomies in the district since the incentive of a firearms permit was introduced a month ago, compared with only eight in 2007.


You guys in California – what would you do to get a permit?

Supreme Court may rule on “individual” 2nd Amendment Rights

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 17th March 2008

This follow-up story on the DC Gun ban case and the Supreme Court is extremely important because the prevailing “law school view” has been to see the 2nd Amendment in ways that conflict with the Constitution.

This decision is critical to individuals right to own and carry.

Great column!

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 12th March 2008

John Kenneth Blackwell (born February 28, 1948), is a former secretary of state of the U.S. state of Ohio who made an unsuccessful bid as the Republican nominee for Governor of Ohio in the 2006 election. He was the first African-American to be the candidate for governor of a major party in Ohio.

He has written a great column about Barak Obama and I recommend it to you.

It’s important that the folks see Obama for who he really is rather than the hopeful fantasy the press presents.

A fed-up Brit speaks some sense on video.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 2nd March 2008

This video expresses one British opinion about radical Islam pretty well, but it does take a few minutes to watch it. Some in Britain (and here as well) keep trying to accommodate multicultural expression, but when we give an inch they take a mile.

If you love radical Muslims or the Saudi’s, pass this one up.
