I am wondering where people on Daily Paul stand.
Which only 25 apparently showed up, was for the United States to stop blaming them for 911. Most of us believe 911 was an inside job, so I support the Muslims. I'm not against the bikers, but they never really mentioned why they were there? If they were Veterans. I cant believe a lot of them were there for the antiwar movement. I think of it more like right after 911 when all the hillbillies flew American flags from their pickup trucks in support of Bush's wars. Basically the whole "Support our Troops" without the "By bringing them home immediately" part.
or, channeling Starkey: "I'm a mocker."

I love the way the bikers jacked DC yesterday.
a true and honest count of both groups and not something misleading and dishonest as in the "MILLIONS".....come on now!
Also, what was their purpose?
Was there even one, just one biker with a sign saying "No More War"
or "Away With NSA" ? Just one?

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul
Since Michigan repealed its mandatory helmet law, you seldom see a Harley rider wearing one. I guess I can see that from a libertarian perspective. I can also see from a Libertarian perspective that a neighbor has no right to shine a spot lite through my bedroom window, burn tires in his yard, so the smell filters through my house, or fire up his motorcycle at 4:30AM shaking the windows in my house and waking up the whole neighborhood. Just to add to the annoyance, it takes like 15 minuets of revving to warm up the primitive machine.
If they want to all dress alike with the branded HD merchandise, all ride the same over priced, under performing motorcycle, while declaring how individual and independent they are, I'm cool with that.
It should be up to the rider to choose to wear a helmet or not. By the same token, public money should not be spent to rescue, assist or resuscitate those critically injured in a motorcycle crash. And to take it one step further, insurance companies should not be required to offer insurance to individuals who choose to engage in life-threatening activities
and when the legislation was being debated some interesting facts were brought to light by the actuaries. Not wearing helmets on motorcycles will save more lives than not. It seems counter intuitive however, that is because it will make available more organs for transplant, and reduce long term care costs. Many survivable accidents with a helmet won't be without one.
As a motorcyclist (sportbike not a biker), one who was in a 45MPH accident, Suzuki vs Buick, I can assure you the Buick won. I was treated, stitched up and back at home the next day. Had I not been wearing a helmet I would have been dead, the proof of that was the damage to the helmet.
So the Harley riders may think loud pipes save lives, but actually not wearing helmets save lives, its just not their own life they save.
1978...Me on a semi-chopped Sportster, risers with flat bar, 25 MPH just getting into Baltimore off of the highway on my way to work...van cuts me off into the back of a stopped Buick in the right lane waiting in line for the maintenance department of a Buick Dealership...
Me...two broken ribs, left leg broken in 5 places as it was caught between the bike and the car...shiny blue metalflake helmet that matched the bike...cracked and smashed in on the left side as I wrapped around the back quarter and slammed my head into the car...twisted and broken body... out like a light...
I'd have definitely been an organ donor as my card was signed at the time...
WhadIsay when I came too? My Bike! My Bike!
Dummy...never rode again...
If you are the van driver reading this...Fuckyou!
Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?
I do not ride with a helmet because I do not want to become a vegetable. May my ashes be spread over the ocean :-)
You may not become a vegetable, but many motorcyclists are paralyzed or lose a limb from crashes.
But helmets do not protect from losing limbs.
It is free choice. I will not dictate to others to not wear a helmet if they do not dictate to me to wear one :-)
You're not one of those ones who want to create more legislation, are you? j/k ;-)
No, I'm one of those who knew a guy who lost both legs in a motorcycle wreck.
Just kidding buddy, stay safe, ok?
"self-selecting themselves out of the gene pool via death or sterilization via their own (unnecessarily foolish) actions"
That describes me to the tee! lol
Will do, truxtonc, you stay safe too :-)
at the same place?
The tyrants needs to know we're mad
they are all free to travel and wander around anywhere in the US.
So I guess I would have to put my lil' hot mama on the back of bike and cruise by both.
That is a cool bike.
Every time I drop mine, it's time for another mod lol
From old engines from the 40's 50's and 60's...he makes brand new bikes mixing up the old and new parts. Custom. Does same on cars. I'll have to post pics of some of the cars he's done.
Post them up!
I'm away from home and only have a few pics on my laptop and found a few from facebook friends. All of these are works in progress. People bring them in and he works on, then they bring back when they can afford more work. These are the young guys who do it this way. He does lots of work for old rich guys and has done some really nice stuff, but I don't have the pics. The two wagons...62 Biscayne and the other belong to family members.
The first pic with the baby more or less depicts how I was raised. My dad is in the background, you can barely see him, but he is teaching this guy how to listen to the heart of the motor.
Thanks for sharing those, Ralph. I am sure the pictures don't do it justice but the clear looks great. It reminds me of back in the day I used to shoot DuPont 7500, even by todays standards it is one of the best clears on the market.
Full apes=chicken wing only hopper ;-)
I don't really support 100% of the message of either group.
So, put me down for both and neither. I guess my two votes cancel each other out.
We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

1 year 8 months and you give us a an Either-Or-Fallacy?
that would give me privileged status? You should get over yourself.
This issue separates the anarchists from the patriots. Why do we act as if these are the same people?
It also separates the conspiracists from the realists.
Take a stand. Are you a patriot or not?
