Union doesn't help much. You aren't allowed to strike, which is the only real way to get action. Get fired for that. So the unions only real support is money and lawyers, which help alot, but the advantage is always with the city. Free market works both ways man. I can't take my pension, or seniority from department to department. I start as a rookie at base pay if I switch department and lose both pension and seniority. I am retired from the FD, and believe me, it's MUCH easier to survive in the free market. I can tell my employer to go f$ck off if I don't like them, and get a better job and better pay with the experience I earned, which I have done twice. Can't do that with the FD. FD is a great job, but limiting in many ways. I know you were in the service JB. You are one of the guys that makes this country great.

Wasn't my argument. I was responding to JB.

"the whole smug ridiculous lot of self-righteous boneheads."



Maybe you can help me out, Buz. Which politicians in Congress wouldn't be included in that comment?

Somehow I don't think that going from stupid to feckless is any improvement.

Listen, don't try being nice to me dammit. It's true, tho, if the Russkis had come across the border I would've put down my beer and ah, dunno? probly surrendered or whatever. Ah, those were the days when there was a front line and you knew who you were fur and agin, when a IED was a birth control device...

Cmon, we're going in a new direction. Haven't you heard that everything is going to be all right now? Ever hear the saying 'Same circus with different clowns'?? Kinda fits I think.

I personally like the 999. I thought the 916 series was just 'ok', and didn't even see why people were up in arms about the 999. It looked miles ahead of the 916, and looked like a purpose built race bike.



This new one is...well, eh. Doesn't do anything for me. Maybe have to see it in person.

I dunno. I find I ride more like a maniac on the naked style than I do on the sportbike style.



Not as fast but more wheelies for sure.

Absolutely. The poor are really going to loot... er I mean be benefitted now that the richest woman in Congress is going to be Speaker. Yep. Congress is going to pass laws that raise taxes on themselves. Yup.



We definitely live in an irony free country.
