You should maybe watch less Wrestlemania and more History Channel. National Socialism is as much socialist as any "Democratic Republic" is likely to be democratic. As any fule knows.

You once again have failed to grasp the point I was trying to make. Perhaps the fault lies with me. The Webster's Dictionary quote, however, makes it fairly clear, even for those that watch Wrestlemania.

Good point, but the whole foundation for getting a concealed carry permit is that you trust yourself, and the local judge trusts you not to use unless absolutely necessary. If someone is endangering your life with a vehicle or anything else, you have a right to self-defense. Its always going to be a judgement call. "Better tried by 12 than carried by 6" the old saying goes.

You apparently failed to understand the definition of socialism. Otherwise you´d have noticed that it talks about the collective or government ownership of the companies.



This of course did not happen with nazis. The companies were privately owned good old capitalistic undertakings, conservative and patriotic ones at that, all the way to the Zyklon-B manufacturers for the gas chambers (Farben) and crematorium makers (Topf & Söhne). Anybody spreading any socialist ideology in the third reich would have prompty ended in one of the fine products of Topf & Söhne.

Thars a brain behind this site in my judgement. Just look at that fool flaying the golf club or extra long ball peen hammer or whatever. Someone here has a little something extra on the ball imo. Like Johan Santana.

The SV is a 2001, the Renegade sounds super and the bike turned out 75HP on the dyno.



The reason I purchased it was, I liked emailing the Limey chick that took the order ~ they have subtle sense of humor in merry olde England.

I also wish he hadn't gotten into conservative bashing--what has that to do with road safety.



Ditto to those writers who advance polite but assertive riding style. Agressiveness and inpoliteness will yeild agressiveness and impoliteness in return.



Bad Ideas:

Following too closely.

High beam lights in the mirror.

Those maddening constant flashers.

Passing too close to the car, with throttle open.

Whipping into the car's lane too close to the car.

Any show of irritation concerning the other driver's actions.



Good Ideas:

Follow at a polite distance.

Pass wide if possible.

Shut throttle as you pass the car.

Blend into the car's lane at a proper interval ahead.

Waiving to the passed driver with the left hand, as in "Thanks for letting me pass safely."

Forgiving poor driving with a "That's OK" wave.

Expect bad driving. Don't take it personnally.
