You know, I just went an entire work week without watching the tube. I don't think I missed a thing.



I DID ride and work on my newly restored SL350 a lot, though.

You can set your watch for the time of day by listening to freaking Classic Rock. Pink Floyd "Money" = 10:00 AM. Lynrd Skynrd "Freebird" = 10:04 AM. Dire Straits = "Money for Nothing" = 10:08 AM. Commercial. Repeat the above......every day.... every State.... every city......

That's why I never listen to Classic Rock stations. I'm more into the modern-alt-progressive-type stations.



I just saw a concert featuring Panic! at the Disco, Franz Ferdinand, Hard-Fi, Dashboard Confessional, etc. Stuff you'd never hear on Dinosaur rock stations.



I already own all those records anyway.

Maybe if it was shoved down everyone's throat 24/7 like NASCAR people would eventual begin to understand it. Maybe it's just that almost everyone drives a car and anyone can drive in a circle so the general population can relate whereas a small percent actually ride or understand the physics involved.

Liberal, conservative, left wing, right wing... ain't a nickel's difference between the two.



Sure there is ... they hate different people.



I'll summarize a writer that I've forgotten:



The far right wants to force you to be white, straight, male, Christian, fiscally and sexually conservative and creationist.



The far left wants to force you to be secular, vegetarian, gender-aware, hairy, fiscally and sexually radical and poor.



The moderate right wants you to be good with our money.



The moderate left wants you to be fair and just.

Longride is speaking metaphorically. They didn't invent the term, the became emblematic of it and so, in a metaphorical sense, 'reinvented' the word because there were no good liberals for the term to apply to.



Of course, the Ann Coulters, Sean Hannitys, Rupert Murdochs and Rush Limbaughs of the world, spouting their bitter, vile diatribes against liberals 24/7 over the radio, TV and in print had NOTHING to do with how the term became what it is. Nah.

Bingo. Create a phantom enemy then knock him down. Being that most people are sheep, this kinda thing has worked brilliantly over and over throughout history. Longride is just another one alongfortheride.

He won me over with his pitch for campaign reform a few years back. I haven't been such a fan since, but at least he had a high water point.
