oh no, fuzzy is backCardinal

I thought after being lambasted for his goofy picture, he'd go away. But, alas, he's back. With a sign in name of Fuzzy Bunny and signing off with TTFN (ta ta for now) I thought the dude had major 'conejo's'. Then, I see him and his ill-fitting bike and those spoke things: I'm not sure what they are, and not sure I want to. My advise is simple - take no advise from him. TTFN

Never left, I just ride and work more in the summer and so have less time to respond. If you have a problem with my posts than don't read them. TTFN
Man, why is everyone so nasty these days?mike mcmahon

It's springtime. Everyone's supposed to be out riding or preparing to start riding. Why do we seem to be suffering from a stream of needlessly mean-spirited and personal attacks against people who have been nothing but pleasant on this board? If you want to avoid FB's advice, do so. However, why not let other decide for themselves who they trust and like?

Good point.mike mcmahon

But it's now "compassionate" nastiness.

After spending 8 years being associated with, and having to defend a the man who's greatest achievment was leaving a legacy as an immoral Herculean swindler, they've built up enough spite for the next 8 years.

Nasty? Tom DeLay, Jessie Helms, Strom Thurmond (when he was functioning), etc. Politics is a nasty business and no party has a monopoly on nastiness. It seems to me that the party that is out of power tends to raise the level of nastiness a bit to make itself heard. However, try to name one Democrat in recent history who could "out-nasty" Newt Gingrich.

He could'nt aproach the level of the dems when it comes to nastiness. How about this, "their coming for our children, they want to starve the elderly, and poison the enviroment." You never heard Newt say such falsehoods and outright lies. He was crucified by the dems and the liberal media machine for trying to control the growth of government and stop wastful spending. Anyway, that is enough of my political ranting on a bike messageboard.

No, he just blamed the permissive culture perpetrated by liberal Democrats for the death of the kid down in Carolina (the Susan Smith case, if my memory serves). Turned out her father (a right wing supporter of some repute) had abused her as a kid which played a role in her being screwed up enough to drown her own two kids. Just ONE example of Newt's fine adherance to family values.
I spent three days with Newt...MikeC

...when he attended a professional conference as an observer two or three years ago. There were only about 90 of us, and he was a friend of our association president, so it was an interesting experience. The impression many of us shared was that he was a truly towering intellect, but did not differentiate readily between human beings and and other logistical components, such as money, trucks, programs, etc.

Although I almost always strongly disagreed with Gingrich's views, I found him to be an interesting person in large part because of his obvious intelligence and his seemingly unbounded ambition. But what you describe is the impression I've always had of him. Compassion for humans did't seem to be any higher on his list of priorities than any other matters on a long list of issues he confronted in Congress. Oh well, back to bikes.

I thought it was eviromaniacs in general that did'nt care for humans. You know the type, kill a loger, save a tree. Just imagin if algore had his way with the enviroment, all these people in California driving around in electric cars that are stalled on the side of the freeway because there is no electricity (blackouts coming soon to a state near you)to charge them. Guess I was wrong, it's the republicans that don't like humans. Remember you libs out there, Bubba signed 80% of the contract with America into law. Newt did have good ideas, and I think history will judge him more fairly than the socialist press did.
What a joke!mike mcmahon

Specifically, your reference to the "socialist press." I assume by "socialist press," you are referring to what is also known as the "mainstream" media in the States: CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, NY Times, etc. I find the constant right-wing reference to the "liberal press" to be rather amusing. Run a search on the corporations that own these major news sources in the United States. "Socialist" or "liberal" outfits? Hardly. What interests do these huge capitalist corporations have in skewing the news toward a "socialist" or even "liberal" point of view? General Electric, for example, would love nothing more than a "socialist" administration that would nationalize huge portions of the means of production. Right? I have yet to hear one good explanation as to why the huge corporations that own the media sources would encourage biased reporting in favor of the left. Maybe you can enlighten me.

P.S. Damn, I keep getting sucked in. If only I could be out riding instead of taking care of a house full of sick kids, I would have avoided this message completely. I apologize to everyone for my inability to resist temptation in my weakened state.
What a joke!keith m.

all you need to do is look at any media monitoring organization and you will see that the data is clear, the media leans heavely to the left. they vote left as well. it has nothing to do with corporations. anyway, we should probably end this here and agree to disagree. let's go ride.
Agreed.mike mcmahon

If only I didn't have a barfing baby in my lap as I type this, I would get out on the road. Enjoy the ride!
