"new" bike

So, I traded my old laptop for a Honda GL500. It's a larger engine than my first bike and it needs some work (no, the one in the picture isn't my particular bike.) This should be a fun winter project. The tank leaks a bit and the bike's been painted Wal-mart blue (ick!) but the engine is sound. Just needs a little TLC and I should be riding it by Spring time. Should be kewl. I'll keep you up to date on how it goes (maybe even with pics!). Big woop huh?
In other news, the Katrina fiasco just barely dies down and along comes another gust of wind and damage to start more sh1t. No, I'm not talking about Kennedy, I'm talking about "Ophelia" doing the nasty all over New Orleans and taking a bite out of Texas (no worries there). Screw relief, let's send tickets. This much egg in their collective faces should be fun.
Brittney "do me one more time" Spears has spewed out her spawn, who'll be as shallow no doubt. Wonder if Disney will continue to tout her virginity now?
Last but not least, Fall has begun. Time to start bitching about the cold (before it gets here and we're too frozen to do anything about it). Soon many a 4x4 driver will learn that 4 wheel drive does not mean 4 wheel stop ;) can't wait.

do NOT donate to Katrina Relief!

Let me explain (before you self deluded types get your collective panties in a bunch!)
What happened there was awful, yes. No one is disputing that. The aftermath is uglier though. The people who were warned time and time again are playing the victim and the bigoted political vultures are coming out of the woodwork to exploit the moment. Claiming that the speed of the relief, the type, the very NATURE of the somehow prejudice.
You've already read my opinions on THAT little nugget, but people are still riding that ugly bull to the hilt. So here's how you can show those involved that you've had enough of the B.S. (that helps NO ONE by the way) NOT donate. Not one cent, not one bottle of water, not one scrap of clothing.
Perhaps when the supplies dwindle they'll realize that when you're asking for help, you don't bite the hand that feeds you and you most CERTAINLY do NOT cry foul while you're getting it.
And let's not forget, they WERE warned and many DIDN'T leave. You can't help someone who doesn't want it, and THEN turns around and cries about how much they need it.
You're welcome to hate my view, but before you do think about this: the more the race card becomes an issue (thanks to the media whores waiting in the wings) the LESS people will give a sh1t about the WHOLE THING. It might take a bit, but it'll happen. All I'M doing is going straight to the end of the show, and stopping MY support all together.
If we're lucky, maybe they'll suffer enough to drag Jackson, Sharpton and Geraldo in the streets and practice a little cannibalism ;) Hey, I can dream

what a bigoted retard...

it seems that the esteemed and ever so talented Kayne West ("kayne"??) is not happy about the way the denizens of New Orleans are being handled in the wake of the hurricane. in THIS story, he had the nerve to say that "...Bush doesn't care about black people..." before being cut off (thankfully).
OK, it's New Orleans. Yes, there's a high black population but let's remind mister "talent" about something....the storm hit EVERYONE! It didn't discriminate and neither do the rescuers.
You pompus, prejudice dare you suggest that the relief efforts aren't going well enough because SOMEHOW the president doesn't like black people. If anything it's those same "honorable" individuals that are taking advantage of the situation and commiting murders, rapes and thefts. If it were up to me, I'd remind everyone how we warned them to leave and then tell them "you were don't DESERVE any help" and it wouldn't have a DAMN thing to do with color.
it's amazing how someone can use prejudice to hide their own. he should be banned from any decent radio station. if not for his comments or lack of good sense, then for his lack of tact.

Hiya Stranger :)

It's been a while hasn't it? I've been busy with life in general. Don't you just hate when that sort of stuff gets in the way? :)

In the meantime, we've got the collective bend over action that we're getting at the gas pump and the hurricane in New Orleans. At the time of this humble scribbler's writtings, the pump was at $3.00 + a gallon (here in CO.) Amazing isn't it? What's more amazing is that the governer of Georgia just had to declare a state of emergency in order to keep their $6.00 per gallon...yes, I said $6...gouging from going on. Ah, the nature of the human...isn't it grand?
Meanwhile, FEMA has actually pulled out of New Orleans because it's not safe for them to be there.
Guess you can't help those who don't want to be helped huh?
Meanwhile the scammers are out in force, taking advantage of the situation...the more "affluent" are "helping" in order to feel better about themselves, and the ones suffering continue to suffer. So essentially, life goes on as usual.

Welcome to America.
