Default It's Bush's fault

"I see so many people that I worked with at Boeing, and they're still unemployed just as I am," said Summers. She blames free trade and President George W. Bush for allowing U.S. companies to outsource overseas.



"I wish the government would really see what it is doing to the American people. We built this country, and I feel that they're letting it turn into almost a ghost town," she said.





The loss of 2.5 million manufacturing jobs since January 2001 has devastated factory towns across middle America, where once-dominant local employers are pulling up stakes and heading to Mexico or Asia in search of lower costs and cheaper labor.

Default Re: Honda Recalls Goldwing 1800s

After reading all these posts (including my own) and after due consideration, I have to conclude that today's motorcyclists are the most whiny and spoiled bunch of motorcyclists in history. We hear complaint after complaint about what in reality is mostly a bunch of niggly $hit that doesn't amount to a hill of refried beans. "Harleys are crap." "VFRs suck". Etc.



There probably isn't a bike you couldn't buy new, throw on or fill up the saddlebags and ride form coast to coast without worry... except maybe that Russian junk.. but anyone would expect that. There will always be the odd lemon because you can never be sure that some guy on the assembly line isn't really hung over or maybe some guy at the subcontractor is mad at his boss and so sabotages some components. Engineers misjudge strengths. $hit happens, you know.



Most of us would probably complain if we were hung with a new rope.

I agree totally! Bikes overall are the best they have ever been. I suppose people just don't do their own maintenace anymore, treating bikes like cars that go to the dealer for everything. I hope bikes don't just become like another appliance.....

The funniest thing I have heard this week. George Bush cannot legally stop either free trade or U.S. companies from outsourcing overseas. It's called capitalism- get used to it!

Of course I would complain if it was a new rope- at least with an old one there is a chance of it breaking!
