Default Re: Is it generational?

I'm the quintessential Gen-X'er and I don't remember having to wear a helmet for anything other than organized football, baseball, hockey and BMX racing. There weren't even helmet laws for motorcycles. Sh*t, we didn't even have car seats for kids. My mom laughs all the time about how safety-conscious all the parents are now. My parents used to tote us around in a Mercury station wagon with lap belts when we were really young. I don't know where you grew up, but we didn't have much safety gear. And no one I know did, either.

Default Re: Mr Mom

Since before my daughters were born I've worked rotating shift and my wife worked days, so I've been around for and taking care of my kids all their lives.

Now that I work days, my wife works swing so I'm home to help with homework and cook dinner and get them to bed, while she gets them up and out the door in the mornings.

Plus my days off are monday and tuesday so in the summer I take them to the zoo and such when there's no crowds. I'm glad I've had a chance to be an active parent, and I don't understand guys that spend no time with their kids

Their loss, I guess.

Your first statement I agree with wholeheartedly; your second is a flaming crock of sh!t-you know nothing about me nor do you comprehend my motives for action. Your third almost stopped me-I couldn't figure out why you chose a 35 year old LBJ program to say Libs want a warm fuzzy feeling. Were you dumping on poverty? War? LBJ? In fact, I wasn't sure upon what you were basing your statement that the war was lost, or that it hurt people...although I could comfortably draw the correlation that you're against the war on drugs-Lord knows I am. See? Common ground between us! As far as your fourth statement/question goes-you got me, I can't name one. I'm afraid I don't shift gears as readily as you seem to, flying from one topic to the unrelated next with abandon.



What is it with you? I wouldn't have called you a conservative if I'd had this little window into your psyche before-I'd have leaned towards paranoid militia...'fess up, how many copies of the Turner Diaries are laying around your house/bunker?



Bryan...you need to lighten up, Francis...

Personaly I am appalled that some people on this site are attempting to condemn Larry for not wearing a helmet. Motorcycling is dangerous and too many people die from it every year. Some are wearing helmets and full gear and others aren't. Either way dead is dead and it sucks all the same.



Larry was a great man. A true motorcycle enthusiasts who lived life on his own terms and became a legend doing it. How many of us are so lucky? Judge him and you are only judging yourself.



RIP Indian Larry, you will be missed.
