Obama thinks our Constitution is flawed.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 27th October 2008

From Bill Whittle at National Review Online:

“Speaking on a call-in radio show in 2001, you can hear Senator Obama say things that should profoundly shock any American — or at least those who have not taken the time to dig deeply enough into this man’s beliefs and affiliations. Abandon all hope, ye who enter here. (click “here” for Obama audio on YouTube)

Barack Obama, in 2001:

“You know, if you look at the victories and failures of the civil-rights movement, and its litigation strategy in the court, I think where it succeeded was to vest formal rights in previously dispossessed peoples. So that I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at a lunch counter and order and as long as I could pay for it, I’d be okay, but the Supreme Court never entered into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society.

And uh, to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution — at least as it’s been interpreted, and Warren Court interpreted it in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties: [It] says what the states can’t do to you, says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf. (italics added)

And that hasn’t shifted, and one of the, I think, the tragedies of the civil-rights movement was because the civil-rights movement became so court-focused, uh, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change. And in some ways we still suffer from that.”

He thinks the Constitution should say what government should do for the people, especially that it should outline the distribution of wealth. Fact is, the purpose of the Constitution is to protect citizens from the power of the federal governement.

Just do what they tell you.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 26th October 2008

I get lots of emails and phone calls at Tucker Gunleather from fellow shooters and gun owners. I enjoy it. You’re great people.

Often, before calling us, you’ve been to so many websites and gun forums, talked to so many friends about what you should buy, that you feel like the woman in the video below.

She’s just trying to convert her TV from analog to digital and doing her best to follow the advice she’s getting. Wouldn’t talking to a live person, who wants to help, be more useful?

Watch the Video have a laughcall me if I you have holster questions and want the straight scoop. 800-308-6628.

Company Memo 10/23/08

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 23rd October 2008

 

“New Company Memo As of November 5, 2008.”

As of November 5, 2008, when President Obama officially becomes president-elect, our company will instill a few new policies which are in keeping with his new, inspiring issues of change and fairness:

1. All salespeople will be pooling their sales and bonuses into a common pool that will be divided equally between all of you. This will serve to give those of you who are under-achieving a “fair shake”.

2. All low level workers will be pooling their wages, including overtime, into a common pool, dividing it equally amongst you. This will help those who are “too busy for overtime” to reap the rewards from those who have more spare time and can work extra hours.

3. All top management will now be referred to as “the government.” We will not participate in this “pooling” experience because the law doesn’t apply to us.

4. The “government” will give eloquent speeches to all employees every week, encouraging its workers to continue to work hard “for the good of all”.

5. The employees will be thrilled with these new policies because it’s “good to spread the wealth around”. Those of you who have underachieved will finally get an opportunity; those of you who have worked hard and had success will feel more “patriotic”.

Maybe some folks shouldn’t vote.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 18th October 2008

If a person has no idea what they’re doing, should they vote? See the video.

Maybe some people shouldn’t vote.

It’s been my experience that many people have no idea what/who they are voting for or why.

(I’m not suggesting they be prevented by law.)

What do you think?

McCain tried to stop this financial mess.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 11th October 2008

Senate Letter

Senate Letter

Sen. John McCain’s 2006 demand for regulatory action on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac could have prevented current financial crisis, as HUMAN EVENTS learned from the letter shown in full text below.

McCain’s letter — signed by nineteen other senators — said that it was “…vitally important that Congress take the necessary steps to ensure that [Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac]…operate in a safe and sound manner.[and]..More importantly, Congress must ensure that the American taxpayer is protected in the event that either…should fail.”

Sen. Obama did not sign the letter, nor did any other Democrat.

New Tucker Gunleather AIWB Holster (Appendix IWB)

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 4th October 2008

Some CCW holders like to carry their IWB holster in front of their hip. Tucker’s Cover Up has worked well for many in the AIWB position because it is so adjustable. Our new AIWB holster is made specifically for wear in front of the hip and will be better suited and more comfortable for this kind of carry.

Currently, we have a contest on Glock Talk (www.glocktalk.com) to name the holster and win any Tucker IWB of your choice. You may want to visit Glock Talk today and enter your suggestion. The contest ends on Saturday, October 11, 2008.

 CIMG1259.JPG

The holster is adjustable for cant and height and has one tenssion screw. Notice the sweatshield behind the back of the slide for comfort.

I look forward to your suggestions and comments. NOTICE: THE DESIGN IS COPYRIGHTED.

Do Facts Matter?

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 4th October 2008

If you’ve been watching the evening news, it looks like the Financial crisis was Bush’s fault, the “fat cat’s” fault, the fault of deregulation.

If you want another take, you may want to see what Thomas Sowell has to say here.
