Can't really compare the two my friend, anrajala at least has his own opinion on things, whether we agree or not. KP was just a one trick pony and a parrot for every off the wall idea that came along as long as it involved bashing someone else and being a general d*ckhead

I gotta say he's got a point AFA the European work system. When they get on the assistance programs (the 'Dole' in England), there doesn't seem to be much motivation to go back to work.

Unless you count stuff like the Dutch sending kids to Bonaire to work at the hotels as motivation.

Of course, those programs (assistance, medical, education) carry a stiff price. That's why fuel is so freakin' expensive, licensing so high, and taxes (sometimes more than a couple) are so high. Somewhere I read that in Sweden the Income Tax is something like 47%. When I was in Goteborg back in the mid-80's, a mixed drink cost almost $15, and that wasn't even a call brand. I only did that once, lemme tell ya!

WTF are you talking about? The average European? Sounds like it.

Someone has to produce the wealth that others want to consume. Get too many parasites and a nation ceases to function. The West is being destroyed by its home grown looters.

Cruz-E is all right in my view. Disagreements are par for the course here, so why focus on him?

They aren't really all that different. KP is eurodope's internet hero. That says more about him than anything else that comes out of his keyboard, which is pretty much KP-speak without the cute acronyms. A dope by any other name........

Virtually every other motorcycle website is dominated by thread nazis. So anyone who wants a tightly controlled environment has plenty of places to go where they can feel safe and protected.

MO has always pretty much been a free speech site where threads are allowed to go anywhere and people are allowed to say pretty much anything as long as it's not illegal, i.e. threats or racist comments.

The unlamented KPaulCook is about the only guy to get banned from MO for speech. He only got banned for threatening others. If he'd refrained from that he'd still be here spewing his peculiar form of circular illogic.

When someone is a moron people focus on them. Maybe you noticed this tendency since you have been here. And no Sachi I am not including you in the moron category. As much as we disagree, you are a real rider with real experience, and have real knowledge about motorcycles. The Eurodope is nothing but an assclown.

It's the annonimity of the interweb, there's no way KP could talk all the sh*t he does to someones face. The whole High School debating society where everyone sits around and argues obscure points doesn't fly past High School. Here or on the web in general he or anyone else can insult and badmouth anyone they want with very little chance of having to deal with the consquences, it's a perfect world for those types...all the attention they want without the risk of seriously getting their lights punched out.

But that is Eurodope's reason for existance here. Take away inane ramblings and he's out of gas quick.
