Gone Riding…

Well, in February, I finally acquired a Harley Davidson.  A 2008 FXD Dyna Super Glide.

my-08-super-1a

It’s not the “Custom” model, but it’s mine, and the changes have already begun.

After riding it a couple of times, I came to not care for the grip angle of the factory buck horn handlebars, so those were the first to go.  Replaced with some black drag style bars.  Much more comfortable riding position for me.

Next, will probably be pipes, air cleaner, and a remapping. 

Then in no particular order:

  • possibly a gel seat, though I kind of like the one that’s on it.  Or maybe I’ll just go the route of having a gel pad added to this seat.
  • Forward controls are definitely in order
  • I’d like a different tail light setup.  I’m thinking along the lines of the Street Bob setup where the brake lights are integrated with the turn signals.

Beyond that stuff, I have no idea what I’m going to do.  We’ll see as time goes on…

My best friend hit’s the nail on the head…

My best Friend, had this to say today on Facebook.  I guess he’s just as frustrated and unhappy with the current administration in  Washington as I am:

Dear liberal progressives,
When will you all wake up and smell the coffee. Everyday I am simply amazed by the level of your stupidity. Someone offers you koolaid and you drink it instead of doing research and trying to educate yourself. Your president has done absolutely nothing but destroy our economy and run our country into the ground. Yet you stand by this man and his administration while he continues to abuse his power. It boggles my mind to think that the majority of you want justice for Trayvon Martin and without looking at any facts George Zimmerman was trying to convicted the night of his shooting. So I ask this question, if Trayvon Martin is a victim in your opinion what about the people killed in Benghazi? What about those facts what about all of the evidence the mountains and mountains of evidence showing that this administration is 100 percent completely at fault and is solely responsible for the deaths at Benghazi. Why are we not convicting this is administration?
I am sick and tired of being called a racist just because I state facts and I’m white. The fact of the matter is the only reason this Zimmerman trial has this much media attention is because someone shot and killed a black teenager. What about the two black kids that shot and killed that white toddler in Georgia? I heard about that right after it happened and then the media stop covering the story. Why are we not trying to fry them like you’re trying to fry Zimmerman? Why is it okay for a black person to call a white person a cracker? That is just as racist as someone calling a black person the N word. Yet the liberal media laughs and jokes and uses that term freely. But here’s my message to you regarding this subject. Number one, you can take your race card and shove it as far up your ass as you can possibly reach. Number two, I will not forget about our ambassador and Navy SEALS that died in Benghazi. I will not forget about the attorney general sending our automatic weapons to Mexico to the drug cartel and then using our own weapons to kill our Border Patrol agents. I will demand justice be served. I will demand these people be held accountable for their negligence.
Here is something else you need to come to terms with. Our Constitution was written by our forefathers to protect us. It was written to give you the American citizen basic rights that can not be infringed upon. Why you progressives cannot grasp the basic concept of this I simply cannot understand. If you choose not to exercise your rights that is solely your decision but please do not give your rights up. Once these rights are given up you can not get them back. The difference between you and me is if I don’t like something on TV I change the channel if you don’t like something on TV you want it banned. This brings me to the 2nd amendment. It is my right as it is with every American citizen to keep and bear arms. If you choose not to own a firearm that is your right but it is my right to choose to keep and bear my arms. You need to accept this and stop trying to infringe upon my rights! The 2nd amendment was written to protect ourselves from a tyrannical government. The militia has absolutely nothing to do with the military. The militia is us the American people. We all as American citizens have a duty to protect this great land. Now I know I may be going a little fast for you so let me put this in terms you might better understand, stop trying to take my guns. Its never going to happen.
Your ideas on parenting are an absolute joke. Children do not have the same rights as adults and therefore should respect their parents. This is the problem with children today. They have this idea that acting like a fool is OK because they know they will not be punished. Control your kids that is your responsibility as their parents. Your job is to educate your children. The other thing that really chaps my ass is when you go to your child’s sporting event and they don’t keep score. You’re setting them up for failure and you don’t even know it. There is a reason that a scoring system is put into place. It is there to determine the winner of the game. If you can’t win the game then there’s nothing to be achieved and if you can’t achieve anything then there’s no reason to better yourself and try harder and if there’s no reason to try harder they will apply this in all aspects of life in the future. I personally I want my children to succeed in life. I want them to try harder I want them to strive to be the very best they can be whether it be in school work or at a sporting event. If your child is playing a game and the opposing team is running all over them and you’re not keeping score believe me your child knows they’re getting their asses handed to them. Kids are not stupid so try to give them a little more credit.
In closing, I am a Constitutionalist. I once considered myself a Republican but now Republicans seem to be catering to the Liberals. My own party doesn’t have enough balls to stand up and protect my rights. There are a handful of Republicans that are on the right path a few of them Being Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. I fully believe in the Constitution of the United States of America and will defend it by any means necessary.
To my fellow Constitutionalists the time is now. We must stand up and fight for our rights and our country. We must take our country back. We cannot lay dormant any longer. Our voices must be heard. Let’s exercise all of our rights available to us and protect them at all cost. Research all of our politicians and vote out every single one that doesn’t have our country’s best interest at heart. If we stand as one we can show the government that we the people own this country, not the government. I am proud to be an American and I will never take that for granted.
Signed,
A modern day Patriot with a 1776 attitude

I share this with all of my Patriotic friends because I also share his views on the matter…

 

Cheers…

Well, here we go…

It simply amazes me to the umpteenth degree that our government is so willing to sell out it’s own citizens.  It’s obvious that the current administration, and congress are eager to destroy the United States as we all know it.  It’s no long the the Democrats vs the Republicans in the sense of fairness to keep things on an even keel of happy mediums.  They’re both equally guilty of destroying what took 200+ years to establish as the greatest nation the world has ever seen.  And in the course of the past 12 years, it’s been doing nothing but falling apart at the seems…  We have got to take our country back people…

Boys and our toys…

Yeah, I finally got a Harley.  It’s a nothing special 2008 Super Glide.  Pretty much all stock.  I got it and they had put new tires on it but for the most part, nothing was out of the ordinary where the bike is concerned.

Since I‘ve had it, all I’ve done with it is change the handlebars.  Oil change in the crankcase and primary. I’ve washed a couple of times and put a nice fresh coat of wax on it.

An open letter to the mainstream media.

An open letter to the mainstream media. CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, and all of their affiliates and FOX to some degree.

I’ve been watching closely at the current events and am bewildered as to why you all are helping to cover up the scandalous actions of the current administration. I, as well as many others, have lost confidence in the whole bunch of you. To me, you have lost credibility. I remember a day when it didn’t matter who was in what office, the media would go after the story like rabid dogs on a piece of meat. Wanting to be the first to air the story. What happened to the concept of reporting the truth, getting the facts straight? (the real facts, not what some white house official tells you) 

We the People… know you’re not reporting the facts. You’re pandering and covering up scandal after scandal for no good reason. It’s certainly not doing your reputations any good. Most of the key reporters you currently employ are lapdogs, and that’s being nice.

Chris Matthews and his whining, leg-humping, biased rhetoric. Talk about having blinders on…

Ed Shultz is nothing more than failed comedian, his “reporting” is nothing shy of slanderous

Soledad O’brien’s best feature is her looks. She sure doesn’t know how to fact check anything. (using known liberal blog sites is not fact checking, sorry…) Wonder what she looks like without all the makeup?? 

Bill Maher: libertarian???? please, he’s a left wing marxist lapdog who is as clueless as Soledad…

You call these people reporters??? Well, if this was “Weekend Update” on Saturday Night Live it’d be entertaining. Oh, and the “Not Ready For Prime Time Players” were at least factually INFORMED! 

And quit with the race baiting nonsense. Anyone who’s taken a decent course in psychology knows the guilty will be the first to point the finger…

 

A Good Teacher…

is first and foremost a rare commodity these days.  They have the knowledge and know how to lay all the facts out for the students in a manner that is truly neutral.  Without steering them toward their own opinions.  Creating an environment where the students have to think for themselves and develop their own opinions.  Teachers who instruct students WHAT to think, are not teachers, they are propaganda pushers…  To me, these “pushers” are in the same league as drug pushers, liars and thieves.  They steal the students minds, and for all intents and purposes, create sheep.

 

WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!!!!

The 2nd Amendment…

What the Second Amendment is about?  It’s not about guns.  It’s about securing and maintaining our freedoms.  The ones you lefties are so willing to part with.  It’s about protecting ourselves from an over-bearing government.  It’s about keeping the government in check with what the PEOPLE want for the People…  not what the government wants for the people.  It wasn’t the Army that won the Revolutionary War, it was it’s citizens.  Do not confuse “MILITARY” with “MILITIA”  thay are two altogether different entities.

A military is government funded, trained, and supplied.

A militia, on the other hand, is the people being called to arms.  Organized, funded, and supplied of their own resources…

Learn the difference!!

There’s a storm coming…

You can sit there in your soft cushy chair and ignore the signs all you want.  There’s a storm brewing, and it will absorb you in one form or another.  The old Boy Scout’s motto will definitely be on the lips of many,  “Be Prepared…”!  I know, you’re thinking in this day and age this kind of thing won’t happen…  I used to think “It won’t happen to me…”, well guess what America, it’s HAPPENING!!!  If you’re not as prepared as you can be, then you will probably be a statistic.  Sounds gloomy, doesn’t it?   It will be…  and then some!  It’s not up to me to tell you what to prepare for if you can’t see the signs for yourself.  I offer a wish of good luck to you.

I’m not going to speculate on actual events, no one knows to what depth this will fall, but it will be ugly for everyone.  I am not a clairvoyant, but basing this on the fact that this country’s past, is indicative to it’s future, it’s plain to see.  Our leaders refuse to listen to We The People… which is exactly what was going on back when our forefathers and founder of this great Nation broke away from England some 200 plus years ago. 

Tyranny!  This is what a welfare state will consist of.  The government telling you what you can do, how to do it, and when you’re supposed to.  Is this freedom or enslavement?  What opportunity to grow does being on welfare present?  An empty education is worthless if you’re not learning to think for yourself.  Ignoring a problem is not a solution.  So I ask who is trying to enslave whom?  Or as Mr. Biden would say…  Who is trying to put whom “back in chains”??  Think of “welfare” as the chains.  Think about how that limits your growth as a person.  Think about how that will affect you and your family.  Mostly, learn how to just THINK!!!

 

Wake Up America!!!

Liberals, progressives…

and socialists are all pretty much the same thing in this country.  The democratic party went from “Ask not what your country can do for you…” (JFK) to “welfare and Tyranny for all” (the Obama way).  I don’t get it…  Have you all become so pathetic that you need to be breast fed and coddled your whole life?  I attribute this to the left wing wave of teachers and educators that only teach the kids WHAT to think, instead of letting them learn to think for themselves. 

A teachers job isn’t to push his or her values and beliefs on their students, but to lay out all of the options for them to decide for themselves. To LEARN how to research for themselves.  To figure it out for themselves.  etc…  I hate to say it, but the current batch of teachers aren’t teachers… they are simply informants, propagandists, programming their students with false hopes and lies. Obviously, this should not be looked at as a blanket statement, I believe there are some “old school” style teachers out there, just few and far between.  To those few, I commend you for not selling out your values!

As for me, I don;t know if I could consider myself as any one of a particular political party…  I support The Constitution and the Bill of Rights, they are brilliant documents that give the people specific rights.  Why in the world anyone would want to alienate those rights and hand them to the government is just plain lunacy. 

I do not support government controlled health care.  This is tyranny.  As well as allowing the insurance industry to control what they cover and what they don’t.  Again, a form of CONTROL.  I DO support the government putting a leash on the insurance industry in the sense that “there are no limitations to what they will cover”  i.e.  if the patient requires a procedure, it’s covered!!  no if’s, and’s, or but’s!!  The patient doesn’t have to worry about their coverage, so there’s no stressing…  if the insured doesn’t want “generic” meds, they’re covered…  period!!  no questions, no extra paperwork, no premium hikes!  This is what we’re paying them for!   They consistently post profits that rival the oil companies…  hmmmm….  WAKE UP America!!!

The Second Amendment…   Let’s look at some REAL facts.  The area in the US with the most gun control, seem to have the highest rates of violent crime.  Now, what has gun control done there?  It’s done absolutely NOTHING for the law abiding citizens.  None, zero, zilch, notta!!!  but yet the CRIMINALS (who don’t abide by the law) ae now able to do what they want without the worry of return fire from thos who have gone through self defense training for these types of situations.  The facts are out there from non biased sources.  Firearms cause crime like pencils and keyboards are responsible for mispelled words. 

Other things that need to be corrected:

Abolish the IRS, plain and simple.

Abolish the EPA.  a big think tank full of dumbasses…

Gas prices??  aw hell… been over this a bazillion times…  let the oil companies drill…  an oil rig here and there isn’t going to disrupt the local wildlife, unless of course we colonize the area and start chopping down trees to make room for malls and car dealers and skyscrapers and super wal marts, etc…  the rig will be there for a month or so, and gone…  leaving a little wellhead and a couple of cache tanks…  big deal…  yeah, there will be a collection truck now and then…  but hey…  still not nearly as detrimental as colonization of said area…

Left wing liberal name calling…   Stop it!!!   Grow up!!  Quit acting like 3rd graders…

Gay marriage:  I’m not for it, according to the Bible it’s an abomination…  but if it’s your gig, hey have at it… just keep it to yourself…

God and the Bible:  Well, seeing how this country was founded on the belief in God and the Bible, those of you who do not like it, fine…  you don’t have to convert, the Bill of Rights gives you the option of freedom of religion.  I have no issues with that.  But when you start whining like a 2 year old that was told “no” and want everyone else to be like you…  I’m gonna tell you to shut the fuck up!!  if you don’t like this country…  LEAVE!!!!  No one is holding  agun to your head to stay…  the world is a BIG place…  go find your place and quit trying to take mine!!

Voter ID..  I’m for it, 100%!!  You libs seem to think it’s all about the minorities not being able to this, that or the other thing…  but lets see how that works…  oh, shit!!! it applies to me also!!!  damn!!!   What was I thinking?!?!?!?!?!  please!!  spare me your low life rhetoric on this, it applies to everyone regardless of your political or social standing in society.  Oh and it would have applied back when Bush beat Al Gore in florida…  remember that vote???  y’all are rediculously one sided on everything…

Racism: yep, I’m goin there…  it seems to me that the leftists are the one who keep this issue alive, and always seem to want to turn it into controversy.  99.99% of the time the race card is pulled, it’s the racist that throws it!  Jesse Jackson, Michelle Obama, Rev. Wright, just about ALL of the MSNBC/NBC, CBS, and CNN staff.  This has just gotten OLD!!!  It makes me sick to my stomach…

Yes, I know, I’ve probably ranted about these things previously… but you know what??  it’s my blog, and these are the things that are on my mind right now…

OK…  I think I’ve ranted enough for one post…
