If you’re a shooter, I’ll bet you love cowboys.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 24th September 2012

If you’re a shooter, I’ll bet you love cowboys, especially the old-timey movie and TV cowboys like Roy, Gene and Hoppy.

Some of you might have been totin’ a pair of cap-shootin’ six-guns and wearing a big-brimmed hat when you were a youngster. I sure did.

Hopalong Cassidy

Hopalong Cassidy

Hoppy was my favorite (yes I’m approaching official geezer age), but no matter who was your favorite, I’ll bet you’ll enjoy a visit to a great website that pays homage to these heroes of yesteryear.
It’s called “The Old Corral.”

I invite you to take a short walk to the corral and enjoy a treasure trove of Cowboy nostalgia. Then, let me know how you like it.

Limiting beliefs

Have you become addicted to limiting beliefs? Do those limiting beliefs soothe you and comfort you while at the same time holding you back?

In the short term, it can be much easier to tell yourself you can’t do it. Yet when you look at the big picture, it’s much better to go ahead and do the work of achievement.

You can comfort yourself today by believing that your lack of progress is not your responsibility. However, you’ll soon be paying for that short-term comfort with long-term regret.

It is difficult work to acknowledge and follow the best of your possibilities. And it is well worth the effort.

For your dreams are calling to you, and they’ll never be satisfied until you do something about them. You have what it takes to reach them, and they know it.

Break free of your dependence on limiting beliefs. And achieve the great things that only you can bring to life.

Despite the trends in Washington, D.C., we have many things for which to be thankful. Those of you who’ve traveled afar to other lands know the blessings in which we abound.

Most of all, I appreciate the people in my life who support what I’m up to and stand for the best within me. I am grateful for their love.

Thanks, too, to all the customers that have made us successful and allowed our families to prosper. We appreciate it.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Thomas Sowell puts health care debate in perspective.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 3rd July 2009

I always enjoy Thomas Sowell’s columns. He’s clear-headed, thoughtful and articulate.

Here’s his take on the “health care crisis.”

His article is called “Alice in Medical Care.”

So long, Pontiac, so long……..

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 24th April 2009

When I was young, Pontiac meant exciting automobiles, notably the Bonneville, the GTO, the Firebird. They were in demand. Not so much lately.


Any plans to return Pontiac to the heavy-horsepower days of the ’70s ended as gas prices rose and Congress prepared stricter fuel economy rules for the industry.

General Motors, struggling too stay afloat, will announce the end of the Pontiac brand.

Pontiac’s current role in GM seems mostly to be to support GMC and Buick by providing a brand under which Pontiac-Buick-GMC dealers could sell non-luxury cars, filling out what then becomes a full-line showroom.

An official announcement is expected Monday, April 26th, 2009.

firebird-formulaSeems lately, we’ve had to let go of many of the things we valued in our youth.

It’s a reminder to appreciate what we have while we have it.

So long, Pontiac, so long.

A Straight-talking S.F. Police Officers representative tells the media what’s so.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 21st April 2009

This is nearly a 3-year old story, but I’m posting it because I’m impressed with straight talk and this is a great example.

Gary Delagnes, head of the San Francisco Police Officers Association tells the media the truth about a good policeman and felon who caused his death during a high-speed chase. The link to the press conference is below. Don’t you wish we could count on straight talk from all sectors of our government?

Officer Nick Birco was killed July 26, 2006 when his patrol car was struck by a van carrying persons involved in an earlier robbery.

Straight talk – don’t you love it?

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 26th March 2009

It’s so great to hear straight talk, especially when it’s well-said. Daniel Hannan, a British Member of Parliament, tells Prime Minister of the UK, Gordon Brown how the cow ate the cabbage. Watch this video and watch for Daniel Hannan in the future.

You don’t have to agree with everything Hannan says to appreciate his willingness to say how it is.

Do you like high performance jet aircraft?

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 25th March 2009

Well, I sure do. Many have seen the new F-22 Raptor in action, but not much on the new F35 Joint Strike fighter.

This video was produced by Lockheed-Martin and shows a lot of pride in their products – just like Tucker.

5th Generation Fighters Enjoy!

Many years ago, I flew an A-7 Corsair II while in VA-72, aboard the John F. Kennedy.

Yes, I’d take a few more day traps.

It’s the Future, Stupid! A great blog post!

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 22nd March 2009

Recently I recommended a book called, “The Three Laws of Performance.”

In this current blog post, the authors address what we say about our current economic/financial/political situation. They suggest that we create an inspiring future to pull us forward instead of waiting for this to “be over.” Check it out.

The experience of life is given by the future we’re living into.

I’m the first to complain and gripe, but I do believe they have a point.

LA Gun Rights Examiner: Sovereignty in 2009.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 15th March 2009

John Longenecker (no relation to me) has hit the mark with another great post. We, the citizens of the United States are sovereign; not the government. We are operationally supreme. The Founders declared it so. It’s time we remember and take action. We must be involved in the process of lawmaking.

“The gun is the symbol of independence because it is the lethal force which backs it….Gun-haters are announcing out loud that they hate being responsible for themselves, Independent. They don’t want to be on their own. The independence of others around them irks them, and they operate on the mistaken belief that if we disarm the honest (the easy way out, naturally!) things will fit into place and relieve whatever personal angst drives them to handing their rights over to others. Those ‘others’ are only too glad to aid them politically by making gun bans and regulation supported by gun-haters.”

“Some are terribly frightened of being on their own. The patriotic insist on it.”
