    The Israel / Palestine mire (again)

    Eh, sure it is. Israel built that fucking kettle that is Gaza. Why does Eqypt support that blockade? Because the US is Israel's ally, to a fucking fault, and Egypt just wants some of that sweet sweet military aid. That's most of it. You can add that Egypt doesn't want Hamas/Hezbollah whoever in...

    The Israel / Palestine mire (again)

    Oh boy. Swung through just to check out some ride threads and now I'm here. Walking into a fuckin tornado. "They're not caged ... they just can't go anywhere. Or trade with anyone else" That's some fucking newspeak if I ever heard it. Gaza is economically crippled by the blockade. Simple...

    Ownership Verified: Veefer Madness

    Here's yet another FG Honda VFR. My '92 VFR750. Thread name provided by Der Stig, because this site has a fever, and only more VFR's are gonna cure it. It's mostly stock except for the exhaust can and re-jetting, seat reupholstered with firmer foam, Penske rear shock and rebuilt front end by...

    Ride to Arizona and back in 3 days? Sure!

    Great stuff man. My brother lives down in Tucson and he's been riding around the southwest for a few years now. I don't think he realizes how good he has it. You're right that pics don't quite do it justice. That doesn't make the pics any less pretty though. :D Thanks for sharing.

    Random Thoughts (Political Edition)

    :lol: Well that's news to me, I know I post pretty sporadically, don't have a lot of choice about that. But hey, if I hurt your feelings and you want me to back something I said up, let me know. Gotcha. There's nothing you can actually point to definitively. You just want to make broad...

    2016 USA Presidential Elections

    Better than most, as I said. And more secure servers than the ones Clinton utilized were hacked. Again, that was my point. Not "hurrdurr why secure anything?" Comey is full of shit because he took his agents work and used it for politics. He said the investigation was done right, his folks only...

    2016 USA Presidential Elections

    Comey is full of shit. Again, the State Dept and DoD got hacked. And it's likely the only reason Clinton's private server was discovered by hackers is because they tracked it down after hacking the State Dept. If gmail is more secure I'm sure Comey will switch the FBI over to it any moment now...

    2016 USA Presidential Elections

    And that's where you'd be wrong. When Hillary became Secretary of State there were no department policies or laws preventing her from running her own private server. Hell the only "classified" information in all that were two emails that the State Dept is arguing shouldn't have even been...

    The Helmet Thread

    I think the Shoei Qwest came up a couple times in this thread. I've got a short little review for it. Picked up a gloss black one back in early April. Partly because the MSF instructor was sort of appalled at the condition of my nasty old LS2, partly because a friend of mine survived a pretty...

    Turkish dictatorship!

    His purge of the military and judiciary I kind of expected, though the numbers shocked me. Now he's gutting universities? This is like Autocrat 101. I'd never advocate violence to fix politics ... but it couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

    2016 USA Presidential Elections

    Or maybe it's because it's been clear since the start of the primary that the DNC, or at least several high profile folks working there, were in the tank for Clinton. Balance that against growing evidence of tacit Russian support for the fucking Republican nominee and it's not too hard to see...

    Man, I'd fucking love to see some actual quotes to back that up.

    Ownership Verified: 1996 Daihatsu Midget II (why?!)

    It's Steve McQueen approved! With a 'busa engine? :D Hats off to you for one, not only owning that, but being willing to take it over 70mph.
