Fight Crap On TV. Ride.

It’s my Blog, and I write what I want about motorcycles or anything else. The presidential election campaign just got started and political crap is already everywhere. Right leaning bikers go to Fox (Faux) News to listen to Bill O’Reilly propaganda. Like this network commercial telling you that you can’t trust a candidate who is a cigarette smoker (or maybe was). Really? Is it written in the Constitution? I am sure some Democrats are also going to inflict us with some ridiculous TV ads. Yes, smoking is a health hazard, but there is no chance the next President is going to hurt you with second hand smoking. Maybe his first action will be to launch a campaign “Let’s all stop together. You & me. Tax credit on your health insurance premiums for those who succeed”. Don’t you think that the political debate should be about real issues? There are so many. And if you wonder for who I vote, here is the answer: not for a party, but for a candidate. And I still don’t know. So, when you see & hear political crap on TV, shut down your LCD screen and go for a ride or stay in the garage. You know, a bike is never finished.

    I’ll second that. Being a bit of a political junkie myself I post on the Chicago Tribune The Swamp blog often. I noticed one of the most crazed comments the other day where a guy attacked Mr Obama about his ear size & smoking. This caught me a little bit off guard even when considering how nutty some of these posts can be. He was going on about would you vote for a guy who doesn’t have the will power to stop smoking. The guy bums the occasional cigarette while playing poker with friends. Common knowledge around here. Your right. This is wear I draw the line shut the 2008 campaign off and go for a ride. Well maybe not today it’s 20 degrees out and my daily drivers snowed in. Guess it’s off to the Goon Garage to work on the new bikes. Lets hope this Presidential campaign doesn’t lower the attack ad bar even further.

    Sam, what have I told you about too much caffeine? Oops! I see you posted this at 6:00 in the evening… maybe it’s me who should swear off the stimulants? 🙂

    Seriously, I got over this whole 2008 campaign last night when we all learned the "big news" that Hilary was running. If this woman gets elected… I’m moving.

    We don’t know what you are talking about. Until now, no post has ever been censored.

    Good remark, Cyril. TV is full of crap. I love your blog because it’s real news from a pro and also very educative. Too much gossiping on other blogs.

    Cyril. Do you know which candidate is the most pro bikers?

    No. But I would be happy they come here to answer your questions. They are all invited.

    You are right, Cyril. People should vote for a candidate, not for a party. Simply because there are good and bad people on both sides. What about Cyril For President!

    I am US citizen, but not born in the US. The law states that a President must be born here. But I can be Vice President…of who?

    I’m from IL and Obama is pro bikes—so hopefully if he does get elected he can give everyone the choice to wear a helmet or not wear a helmet like we have here in Il. And if A.B.A.T.E. of IL has anything to say — we will all have the FREEDOM to decide.

    John that thought is depressing. Some people give up large amounts of money to work in public service for a couple of years because they care about the country, state, county, or town they live in. Many of these people give up a great deal of money that they could make in the private sector to do this. Then again some of them are liars, cheats and scoundrels!!!
