    We need to get the fall Republican Roundup moved from anti-gun Innsbrook for future such events.

    Va-Alert 6-26-09

    This Tuesday, June 30th, at 12:30 PM, the Goochland Republicans are
    planning a luncheon at Enzo's restaurant in Manakin Sabot. We need as
    many people to attend as we can get.


    **The speaker is going to be Linwood Cobb.**

    Who is Linwood Cobb?

    Linwood is the 7th District chairman who, year after year, has
    selected anti-gun Innsbrook as the location to hold the annual
    Republican Roundup.

    VCDL has raised the issue of moving the Roundup to a gun-friendly
    location with Linwood year and year and he has simply ignored us.

    This year we won't be ignored and we are already in the planning
    stages of a protest for the Roundup in October. More on that in
    future alerts.

    The Roundup is held primarily for Congressman Eric Cantor and Virginia
    House Delegate Bill Janus. Both Cantor and Janus need to help put an
    end to this de facto "no guns" policy.

    Tuesday, we need members to show up at the luncheon, which is open to
    the public, to show support for VCDL as we ask Linwood during the
    question and answer segment why he is putting alcohol over the values
    and safety of Republican gun owners. (Innsbrook allows alcohol on
    their grounds and that is why Linwood claims the location is so
    important that he's willing to accept Innsbrook's "no guns" policy.)

    If you wish to eat at the buffet on Tuesday, the cost is $8.75.
    Otherwise there is no cost to attend.

    The luncheon will last no more than 90 minutes.

    Enzo's address:

    36 Broad Street Rd
    Manakin Sabot, VA 23103
    (804) 784-2962

    I'll be there around 12:15 to handout Guns Save Lives stickers.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    Grapeshot mentioned to me that the turnout may be low because it is a workday lunch. This could be an important step though.

    For those that are interested in the issue but can't come, I set up an email account

    innsbrook@oldva.org

    Email me your opinion and I will print them and make sure they get passed on.

    Well, yes. You are right.

    Given your taste in mixing grey plaid and stitched leather, I think there is probably another definition that fits better, and probably appealsto you more than the word sabot:


    2. manakin - a life-size dummy used to display clothes

    (Thanks for the link!)



    Ohmy. Look at the time. Gotta go. Y'all have a good evening. See ya later. Bye.

    Great suggestion - That's actually delivering the mail!

    Keep your emails polite and to the point - remember you will be representing all citizens favoring RKBA - image and style are important.

    Hit and run at the first sign of the big guns do you.

    Lesson for tomorrow: define mannequin then compare to manakin.

    I can lead you to water but you then must "drink or swim" on your own.

    So back OT, are you coming to the luncheon? You skipped out on dinner.

    It is appalling that the party takes our support for granted so much that they expect us to be second class citizens at this event, in one of the most conservative districts around.

    I specifically have avoided this event in the past because of their policy - despite the fact that it is right near my office, and I live in that district Mr. Cantor and Mr. Janis are my representative and delegate.

    I have donated to them and to many other party candidates, including Bob McDonnell, and I have called and spoken to neighbors, friends and family and explained issues to them, to garner more votes.

    And I have to tell you, this treatment blunts my enthusiasm for further support of any sort.

    I should also add - I will see if I can make it. I had plans I will try to change; if not I will be sending Peter an email for him to present.

    Have people returned from this yet? How did it go?

    I would have liked to come but two people sharing a car gets in the way of scheduling events sometimes. :?

    The Republican Party Needs a Good Housecleaning

    Ever wonder why the Republicans have had so much trouble lately. Well….there are a lot of reasons. George Bush is a big one. But looking at it on a state and local level, it goes deeper. Right into the belly of the beast.
    For those that don’t know the story, Jerry Kilgore handed Virginia Tim Kaine on a silver platter. Kilgore’s campain manager insulted Virginia gun owners. That’s an easy way to NOT get elected…and he wasn’t. This is just one example of Republican Faux Pas that have cost them seats in Virginia.
    For the first time in a long while, the Republicans have three good candidates for the top offices. The replacement for Frank Hargrove is still a coin toss but I can’t see him being any worse than Frank.
    Back to the Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General. There is a real chance of a grand slam and all three show promise as GOOD custodians of the public trust. So what’s the problem you ask?
    The problem is, the party has a cancer growing in the Virginia body. The symptoms are arrogance, conceit and shallow self indulgence.
    I went to The Goochland Republican Meeting today at Enzo’s Restaurant. Linwood Cobb, 7th district Chairman was the speaker. Mr Cobb has selected Innsbrook for years, as the location for the Annual Republican Roundup. Innsbrook is anti gun.
    Selecting this location is like the NAACP selecting a KKK Banquet hall for it’s award ceremony. Simply insulting!
    I immediately spotted Mr. Cobb, even though I had never seen him. He had a Seersucker suit, a chest full of pins and a politicians plastic smile.
    After the buffet, the speech makin commenced. Mr. Cobb talked about the goals of the 7th District, their contributions to candidates, how they needed to get into the burbs and reform those Obama people….and the Annual Roundup.
    The room looked like an Orange (Guns save lives) sticker factory and Mr. Cobb was talking about snubbing Gun owners at their soiree.
    He (Cobb) said the location was convenient to 64 and had a sound system and facilities.
    When questioned by VCDL members about the possibility of using another facility, Cobb replied that there were no others that fit the need. Again VCDL members asked about the possibility of changing the venue if they could find a suitable place. One member had three locations in mind that only needed a sound system. He was dismissed with a quick “We’ll discuss it”.
    Philip Van Cleave, President of The Virginia Citizens Defense League, warned Mr. Cobb that there may be a protest. Cobb said they had the right to do so but to remember that if it were not for the Republicans, they would have lost their second amendment privilege….Imagine that. The Republican party is the only reason we have a RIGHT…That’s guaranteed in both the State and Federal Constitution.
    Will the arrogance never end.
    If the Virginia Republican Party wants to succeed and prosper, they must cut this type of person from their ranks. Hopefully, the good people in the 7th district will insist on his removal.

    We were cautioned by a member of their group to not be single issue voters.

    The Constitution, Bill of Rights, conservative values and our freedoms do NOT constitute a single issue!

    Take or restrict one of these issues/rights/privileges and they all are diminished.

    Wonder how the ball would have bounced if the speakers 1st Amendment rights had been restricted?

    Bottom line - there are those that think their agenda is more important than your rights or maybe more important than your safety/life. They just don't get it........yet.

    I'll have the audio up soon. Grapeshot gave a very compelling response to the single issue comment.
    As always, Philip was professional and to the point.

    I was mad by the time it was time to speak and in different words....just said FU I never claimed to be a diplomat.:?

    Thanks for the write-ups guys. It's a shame that they don't get it and just think that "oh since we are republicans we don't need to worry about the gun crowd they will go for us regardless." Maybe, over time (hopefully a brief period!), lessons will be learned.



    Looking forward to the audio.

    What's the Republican, NRA approved guy's name who ran for governor last time? Oh yeah, Kilgore! I haven't heard muchfrom him since he LOST afterhis staff insulted Virginia gunowners. It's a bitch when 3,000 gunowners are no longer working for you and some are working ag'in you.
