Re: I Knew You Were All A Bunch Of Thugs!

so why does it appear that "MSNBC correspondent Jeremy Lancaster" doesn't exist?

so why is this not listed as a real article under washingtonpost.com (not the same as washingtonpost.com.co)?

Re: I Knew You Were All A Bunch Of Thugs!

"We may not like to admit it, but the truth of the matter is that those that own and operate motorcycles are 67% more likely to be involved in illegal or criminal activity than those that do not own or operate a motorcycle."

And this whole time I thought I was part of the 99%ers. Looks like that number is closer to me being a 33%er.

One other thought... If you have the same people who ride motorcycles doing crimes over and over, then it would skew that % big time. It is isn't like 67 out of 100 general motorcycle people are doing the crimes.

I would type more but evidently I have to go live up to this new found 67% rebellion number that I just found out about. So many crimes, so little time. haha.

We are all on FBI watchlist

Anyone with a M endorsement on their drivers license is considered a potential gangbanger by the FIB.

Re: I Knew You Were All A Bunch Of Thugs!

So I guess:
- cops who drive motorcycles are also "thugs" as well . . .
- and the Vespa crowd is also included . . .

That is remarkable and... just plain asinine.

Some of the most asinine things people do are typically preceded by the two words "Watch this."

Re: We are all on FBI watchlist

The title statement is still probably true, since there are many other things we do that might attract attention. Donate to certain causes, own certain noisy inanimate objects, write a grumpy letter to a member of Congress, attempt edgy humor in a social media post, belong to an organization or club with a clear agenda, etc.

Not paranoid, just not that trusting anymore.

Plus I would suspect that the only bikers riding German bikes would be Germans in Germany. Don't recall seeing a "biker" on a Beemer. Are there any out there?

Totally made up satirical story on a news parody site. Other stories include "ISIS Endorses Ted Cruz For President, Cites Government Shutdown", "George Zimmerman Announces 2016 Presidential Bid."

I'd rather be riding...

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.
