Re: How about just a more perfect union?

No, I don't believe it's a mandated duty of govt. However we live in a republic and so if that's what the people want then that's what we'll have.

But on a deeper note, if you look at public school performance vs funding you discover that the schools that the states that spend the least perform better. If we gave the school bureacrats the entire defense budget they would still scream that it's not enough.

I say eliminate all positions from the schools except teachers and janitors. No counsellors, no shrinks, no nothin'. Return to the teaching methods in use at the turn of the 19th-20th Century. The "new" methods, developed mainly by behavioral scientists in Bismark's Germany, are patently worthless.

Hey, you're into fighting the establisment, right? The current system of govt school bureaucracy is the epitome of a hidebound reactionary establishment. Go for it! Up the revolution!

Re: I am an artiste

Whaddyamean? You don't know nuthin about bikes. Dammed GPTB member. I'll bet you installed a 12" over springer front end and hardtail section on your Trophy. I'll bet you put a 48" high sissy bar with an iron cross on top on it too.

I once rented a scooter in Grand Cayman, the brand escapes me. It sure had wierd handling. I thought it was the extra load of my wife on the back. Turns out the front tire was flat. so much for preride inspections by me and the rental company. With a passenger there was'nt much weight on the front wheel anyway so we managed to make it through the day. I still laugh when I picture myself getting off the bike and kicking the tire only to discover it is actually flat !!

Jumpin' Jesus! I've spent the better part of my life avoiding DC and the thought of someone paying good money to rent a bike for the purpose of entering hell is a true perplexion indeed! Especially when heaven is so close by.

Been to that exact same place, and rented a Victory Kingpin. Decent bike - but heel/toe shifting is horrible. Anyway, my complaint is that they only had half helmets! I was in DC on business and wasn't sure I could get out there, so I didn't bring my own full face helmet - I just assumed that they would have them. The half helmet chili bowl is all they had and what a horrible excuse for headgear. Uncomfortable, kept moving back on my head with the wind, etc. I can't understand why anyone would wear one. I'm just glad I had my sunglasses so I could at least ride some. Went to Gettysburg and had a great time there. Nice daytrip. I'd consider doing it again, but I'll be sure and bring my own lid!
