Na you got it all wrong. Sounds like the mechanic was fired for not being a Beta male. i.e. he should of asked his boss in typical Red-State fashion what kind of bike he should buy, who should he vote for, etc...Remember in Ws world workers are the servants of the business owners(Lords)... Yep we don't need unions naaa....W knows what is best for us..

"On one hand, it should be the Great American Way for you to employ and keep only those that you want, for whatever reason." Right...a guy goes to work every day does his job.. boss finds out he is gay or is a jehovah witnesss or scientologist or loves anchovies on his pizza and fires him... Yep thats the America I want to live in...

So this is what our country has come to.I am not a fan of harleys[love buells though],but last time I checked this was America,right?Next thing you know, we will be laying down prayer rugs and praying to mecca.No offense to muslim riding fellows ,just making a point.Sounds like he has a good case for affirmative action,bike discrimination.Although I just wonder,if he gets his job back ,will he be greeted by hood and sheets folks with the tuning fork emblem on their tunics,telling him"your kind ain,t welcome in these here parts"!

It's not early for me. Us red staters are up at the crack of dawn working our butts off, paying taxes and planning to oppress minorities while every single blue stater in the country is laying in bed with a crack *****, smoking dope and waiting to get a welfare check!



Hmmmmmm. On second thought I think I'll move back to a blue state!

I guess this is my first post on the boards. It's a shame it's just because I got annoyed enough by all the political things that are brought up by some of the people on, well, many of the political sides (conservative, liberal, moderate, etc.) that it distracts from the story and get frustrating sifting through it all.



May I ask why eveything in these times must be related somehow to politics? In my opinion his boss was a jerk and that has nothing to do with whether he's a liberal or conservative, or anyone in the government.



Motorcycles are machines and not exactly a red-state/blue-state thing or a "W's in the White House issue". My opinion: If you want to discuss politics (unless the story here is based on politics .. helmet laws, weird laws that target motorcyclists, etc.) do it somewhere where people are looking to discuss them..



It'd be nice if we could stick to the topic of the psychotic boss that's the real problem and cause of the story, not Bush or Kerry or anyone else.



Once again, I'm sorry that this had to be my first post here, and if you don't agree with what I'm saying here, fine.



I just think it'd be easier for people that are here to read about motorcycles and things that happen with them and not about completely unrelated topics such as who voted on whether or not to have mashed potatos or tater tots as the standard vegetable group for monday lunches in the Milwaukee County School district or whatever.



Let's all have a happy day of arguing and complaining.

Gee a mechanic has all those superior Yamaha and Polaris products to work on and he goes and buys a Harley?



Go Figure.

I'm surprised folks are worked up about this. This site often has comments about keeping the government out of our lives from people on BOTH sides of the political spectrum. Now, however, many of us want the government to regulate this relationship. As a few folks have mentioned in this discussion, if you don't want to adhere to other people's regulations, have a stash of "go to hell" money or open your own company. And, rest assured, no one can be lawfully terminated based on religion, sex, race, disability, or (in some jurisdictions) sexual orientation--various laws address those situations.

Love it! gotta say, you set the tone(bait) and were off to the races already.

BTW, some californians get up at 4:30 every weekday.

Don't be sorry about anything. Booting Sportbikebandit in the ass with your first post will go a loooooooong way to getting you a GPTB membership right out of the box. No prospecting for this guy. Maybe officer material too!
