One of the dumbest comments came from a woman who had swapped out the stock pipes on her Harley for straight pipes. She claimed that she had made the change to improve safety. She wanted people to hear her coming.
Well the story was ALMOST right! Left out was the part about the custom pipers bent around to face FORWARD. Now, people REALLY hear her.

Hey Gilles, it would be nice if they just stopped "draining" the economy, much less not contributing!
Each child being born ("public" funding/county hospital) costs you $10,000. Each year of school costs you $4,000. Etc., etc.

Yes, Brian, you're so right! Nor will I ever enforce any helmet law, either. It amazes me what people get their panties in a wad over.

Again, it's amazing what people get their panties in a wad over.

Actually, Marc, you didn't know it, BUT your opinion AND your constitutional rights ARE VOID where prohibited by law!
