You have probably noticed that you never see Jon and Johnny in the same place at the same time ..... seems awfully suspicious to me.

Default thank you, thank you, thank you ....

thanks for so perfectly summing up my feelings on partisanship and politics. i have sent your words on to my father in the hopes he will someday regard me something other than a commie idiot. not sure yet whether i should share them with some biker friends, but maybe even they will find some enlightenment.



hope springs eternal ....

Default Re: No Shat Storm with this one...

In know -- kinda disapointing, ain't it? When I saw that Johnny had posted Part II, I was all geared up for another $hitstorm, and a good excuse to avoid real work while appearing to be busy at my computer for the next couple of days. Instead, we get this well-reasoned, articulate, non-inflamatory piece that won't set off anyone other than the most rabid among us!



Then, on top of that, I see your post, which says exactly what I wish I had written -- damn, I was really looking forward to being on the opposite side of another arguement with you.



I suppose that next, we will get a post from the Highwayman, stating that he took a test ride on the new CBR600RR, and that, while it is not his personal cup o' tea, it really is a nice bike, or a post from KPaul admitting that someone who prefers a Buell or Ducati to a Japanese bike just possibly might not be a complete idiot (oh wait, I think that may have already happened!)

Wow, great article!!! Not much in the way of motorcycles but it was good.



The big issue there is "not having to think". Damn shame we're like that.



You have to admit though, using the sarcastic description of the 80's conservative period was just asking for trouble. In a way, that stuff sets you up for the up late post porno surfing middle aged John Burke wannabes.



Man my hand is sore....

Once again JohnnyB tries to obfuscate his political leanings in an attempt to appear cosmopolitan, intelligent, and a stoic bastion of individuality. Ever notice that when Johnny's views on politics are attacked, he instinctively and cynically decries his opponet's argument as ad hominem and ill-informed? Apparently NOBODY can get a fix on Johnny. He's just too complicated, too smart. He exists on a higher plane than the rest of us.



Heaven forbid that Johnny would actually respond to the substance of an attack in an attempt to defend his purposefully veiled (but rather obvious) political views. Instead he says that Britian's socialized health care is swell (though almost any Briton on a waiting list to be hospitalized would disagree) and says something about having fun with friends. Such is the entire response to the claim that Johnny's a socialist. Again, he wouldn't want anyone to know what he actually thinks, why, they might have a differing, and (heaven forbid) more reasonable (or logical, or simply "better") viewpoint than he. That would make him vulnerable to attack by logic, something he patently avoids. Better to drop a few hints here and there (even better if it's an editorial endorsement of a second-hand opinion) and then claim that every criticism is spun from an immature, reactionary ignorance.



Please, dear reader, don't bother critisizing JohnnyB. I can assure you up front that you will have it wrong. You are an idiot, and JohnnyB is a sage of modern politik.
