Re: The Philippines are more progressive than backwards U.S.

Growing up around guns as the son of a gunsmith and being a gun owner since I was 5 years old, I agree with you. About 10 years ago I quit the NRA because of their willingness to compromise constitutional rights in the incorrect assumption that if the just let the government stick it in a little bit maybe they wouldn't get the whole shaft shoved in. The NRA was wrong then and all of compromise crowd on this site willing to "work" with the government on motorcycle issues are just as wrong now.

"Motorcycle riders are dangerous and crazy"

We must pass these common sense motorcycle laws to prevent even one child (definition of child is anyone under the age of 25) from being injured.

We must stop these high powered motorcycles from getting into the hands of criminals.

We must hold the motorcycle shops responsible for the actions of these criminals.

We must put a 300% tax on motorcycle tires.

There is no reason to own a high-powered motorcycle in a large city.

Why are these bikes needed on the road? They should only be allowed for track use only.

Bikes should be locked up and stored at local race tracks and should not be aloud to be taken off the premise.

The gun and bike situation interchanges quite easily. And these idiots are stepping right up and wanting it to take place.

Re: Barbados: Making the proper move to motorcycle safety

"Smaller motorcycles are fine, but it is beyond me why any human being, given the size of the roads in Barbados, and the closeness of our intersections, would want to mount a motorcycle with 1500 ccs. And the only thing you can have in mind is either dying or killing,"

Absolutely. That's self-evident isn't it? Who could argue with that? In fact anyone who would disagree with such a view is a dangerous lunatic and must be put away to protect the majority of obedient lemmin.... er I mean citizens.

Concepts like the above as well as others like human caused global warming and institutional racism are so obviously undeniable that anyone who would publicly disagree with any such self-evident truths must be tried as criminals. Or even better we should just appoint a new class of priest-kings who are authorized to dispense justice at whim. Only then can we purge our society of unorthodox and dangerous thinking and thus bring about a new Golden Age.

Re: Scary Court

Mid to late sixties, one of their main weapons in taking down the KKK, of course they were also spying on MLK and Lennon at the time.

Did you know "Cat Stevens" is banned from coming to this Country? He has been an invited guest at the White House, before...

OOUUuuuu baby baby it's a Wild World...

Re: The Philippines are more progressive than backwards U.S.

Oh, now I see. You were brought up by dangerous lunatics.

Remember the 70's when the media ran all those stories about Vietnam Vets being nutcases and ready to explode into violence without warning? An amazing number of people were frightened of us. I know because I encountered my fair share.

It was all lies. By actual measurement veterans are less likely to go berserk or become criminal than the general population. It shows just how effectively the media can be used against any particular group. If the major news media decided to campaign against m/cers we are screwed. Lucky for us a lot of them ride.

Re: Barbados: Making the proper move to motorcycle safety

Glad to see you are coming around to seeing things the right way (i.e. my way).

We need to have greater control of what can be done. We need the government to step in and properly set us straight.

Rider Privilege Plan


1. Limit all production
bikes to nothing over 400ccs

2. License plate numbers must be clearly visible on all helmets

3. All documentation of ownership must be available at all times

4. Documentation of training must be carried at all times

5. New helmets must be purchased every 3000 miles to ensure helmet effectiveness

6. New protective gear must be purchased every36 months to ensure effectiveness

7. DMV registration authorization tags must be purchased for all riding gear
and helmets to ensure they meet regulations.

8. To renew any DMV registration tags a written and course exam must be completed
to ensure all safety and training skills are up to date

9. Failure to meet any of the above is an automatic $500 dollar fine per violation

10. Local police should be aloud to pull over any motorcycle to ensure all safety
measure are up to date.



This will limit deaths and create a higher level of safety
for everyone. It is unfathomable that anyone would not want this to take place.
This is what the government is here for. Let's get the legislation in place
so we can enjoy our hobby safely.

Re: Barbados: Making the proper move to motorcycle safety

Let's not forget that before 1900, global temperatures were in complete stasis for the previous 1 billion years, and since then have showed an increase. Also, weather patterns were completely calm and unfluctuating, whereas now we have global-warming-caused heat waves, global-warming-caused cold snaps, global-warming caused glaciation, global-warming caused de-glaciation, and global-warming-caused hurricanes and tsunamis.

What has happened since 1900? The invention of the motorcycle. Post-hoc ergo propter hoc. Ban motorcycles, save the planet.

Re: The Philippines are more progressive than backwards U.S.

Dude, don't forget residential swimming pools. 87 times more likely than a gun to kill a child*. We must ban killer death pools.

*Not regurgitated from an NRA press release. Just Google the number of homes with pools/guns vs the number of children killed by drowning/accidental shooting. Do the math.

Thank you.

Really, I view this as a
starting point. There is so much more we could do to increase safety.

Long term, once the first
round of legislation is complete, we can move on to bigger things.

  1. Devices limiting bikes
    from exceeding the speed limit
  2. Automatic shut off to
    prevent high speed chases.
  3. Automatic shut off when
    aggressive riding is attempted
  4. A track only device to
    allow for aggressive riding
  5. GPS tracking for all
    bike
  6. Limit bike riding to
    optimum weather conditions to prevent biker fatigue on warm days and dangerous
    riding conditions on snow/ice/rain days. 65-85 degree days and nothing less
    than partly cloudy.
  7. Employers should be able
    to run a background report on all bike riders to see their riding history.
    Recklessness can be grounds for dismissal and continuous employment shows
    aiding criminal acts and attaches responsibility to the business if criminal
    acts or injury to property, community or citizens takes place during employment.

Re: The Philippines are more progressive than backwards U.S.

Hey, I've seen "First Blood"! - I know better! All you 'Nam Vets are ticking timebombs, just waiting for some law-upholding local Sheriff to merely innocently do his job to "set you off"..............

I think perhaps you're onto something here!



You ever consider running for Congress?

Re: The Philippines are more progressive than backwards U.S.

Maybe it would be less fragmented if everybody joined the NRA.

No organization is perfect. I have issues with the NRA and AMA, but every year they get my dues because I'm infinitely better off with them than without them.
