    There may be language in this response which you guys can utilize somewhere as a succint summary of why Holder stinks. If only every state could have a Jim Inhofe......

    If you didn't already know, the dirty deed is now done; he was confirmed as AG over the attempted veto of a few like Inhofe.

    I too am confused... :confused:

    User names often have nothing to do with the individual's true occupation or background, and it is also a core rule on this forum that it is issues that are open to discussion, and not the poster's personality. Frankly, I don’t give a hoot about the user names people choose to give themselves. In relation to the posted message they are irrelevant.

    Frankly, I’m glad the letter was posted. My senator was one that voted for confirmation, and he’s going to hear from me! In the process I will include some quotes from this letter to help make my points.

    I assure you all, I am not a tank. I am a human being. Just an old nickname.

    Some of you guys are ri-donk-u-lous.

    So, when he was called PremiumSauces, would you have believed he was, in fact, a high-end condiment or entree garnish? :banghead:

    DOCTOR Tad, good job with your Senator. He seems like a great guy.

    I received the exact same worded letter from my Senator. I'm in SC.

    So now we don't even get a personal response, we get a form letter. I could understand a form letter for the same congress critter. But not from different states!!!!!!!!! :cuss::banghead:

    Thanks for the post Doc, I didn't know about the pardons. A second thanks for getting off your butt for the 2A.

    Maybe the dog peed on edsky's wheaties this morning? Good post Dr. Tad! The heading pulled me in off the main board. I had no idea about the pardons either. I'm shocked at the lopsided vote. I need to check on how my reps voted. Obama adds yet another to his crew that is above the law

    Dr. Tad - I am not now nor have I ever been a solvent or technically a maker of solutions (other than incidental biological products).

    Thank you for your letter and posted response.:neener:

    I would like to second the thought about new people joining on a daily basis. I have only been here a short while myself and do not proclaim to be up to snuff on every issue. I truly appreciate people posting items like this because I don't have a ton of time to spend on line scanning every little article I come across. Although I am not a newby to guns, (I have fired tens of thousands of rounds thru many different weapons) I am a newby to this site, I yearn for information and need a source such as THR to fulfill this need. It is very disheartening to be made fun of or hushed because a topic has been discussed already. I would hate to be a person sitting on the fence, just before making up my mind about being pro or antigun and be hushed or ridiculed for talking about something that has already been discussed. Now, that being said, What do you guys keep in your BOB's????? (just kidding) We were all newbies at one time.

    By the way, My Senator Tom COburn also opposed the Holder nomination and I received a letter similar to the Inhoff response.
    Glad to know some Okies have some backbone......unlike the east coast types.:cool:

    because each replicant has a specialty.. they are designed differently..

    Holder is just trying to make a name for himself, and his 2A views are not shared with the population, nor the SCOTUS.. i really do not feel that an AWB will ever happen.. it's more rhetoric and will ultimately fail due to Heller..

    other "restrictions" may happen, but will those be recognized especially with so many states claiming sovereignty??

    they cannot "ban" due to RKBA being secured by the 2A and Heller defines that.. but they can "restrict", but will the restrictions be constitutional??

    this is nothing more than a waste of tax money, and time.. there are much more pressing issues right now..

    makes no sense to "ban" guns if the federal government becomes insolvent.. what use would law be, if there is no one to enforce it, or no funding to accomplish it the "ban"?? and if you have states actually and functionally enforce their sovereignty, the federal government's control would be even less in that situation..

    also, an Executive Order without funding is just that.. a useless law.. that can be repealed by Congress and the Senate.. i think it's only happened a couple of times before, but it *could* be repealed..

    i'm not really worried about a new AWB.. but i am concerned with what other laws will be pushed by AG Holder that will complicate daily life for the average person..

    Calm thyself, edSky, calm thyself. Where in the world are you comin' from?

    Now, back to the original topic, I wrote my senators urging them not to confirm Holder, and, after they did, I wrote them to express my displeasure. They acted so just like a politician and stated in so many words that they are going to vote the way the want regardless of how I feel. It's the same old thing, tell em' what they want to hear during the campaign, then business as usual when it's over. They did, of course, thank me for taking the time to write them with my concerns, and invited me to do so if I was concerned about any issues in the future.:banghead:

    I assure you all, that I am not a Cook. But I wish my senator gave a crap like yours does

    Senator Inhofe is one of the best. He's also a pilot and flies a plane like mine.

    Good guy for sure. :)

    Please do not think that Inhofe is any good just because he voted against confirming Holder. I am an Okie: Inhofe is in the pockets of the liquor distributors, the tobacco companies and the trial lawyers.

    BTW: Inhofe voted to confirm Hillary.

    I never have to worry about how my senators from Michigan will vote; it will be against freedom every time, especially if it is for the children.

    Levin is up in 2010. If he retires one can only hope our R party will put up someone other than the usual token sacrificial lamb.

    It would not surprise me that the D candidate will be our present leftist governor, Jennifer (shudder) Granholm if Levin opts out.

    I have two republican senators in Utah that are of the most liberal variety in the country. I learned long ago that party makes little difference.
