    So you are good with letting folks in thru the border with no mandatory restrictions regarding covid regs but you want tax paying citizens of the country to abide by covid regs.  You are just proving that this is mostly political. 

    Can't you drink in silence?

    Your stupid, drunken assumptions are painful to intelligent people.

    That is a 2008 Moto Guzzi Sport 1200.  A development of the Breva 1100 platform,  and the basis for the Norge,  which is what I was looking at initially - to replace my aging (and excellent) Yamaha FJR1300,  that I rode from National City to New Brunswick.

    But,  I went with the 'naked' version because I keep the bike at a buddy's place and this is smaller and he can ride it more easily - he doesn't do long trips and fully-faired bikes can be a hassle to handle for some guys if you don't.  Plus,  they do take up more garage space.  His garage. So...gotta be flexible, I say.

    These are the last of that generation of bigger motors with the 2v heads,  which I prefer here,  for a couple reasons - but yeah,  the distinctive engine architecture of the transverse air-cooler V-twin and shaft-drive has been a Guzzi signature since the mid-60s.   Moto Guzzi has a great history,  they have made some great bikes and while they might not be understood by a lot of folks that's okay - Not Everything is For Everybody.   But I dig 'em.   Best-sounding bikes ever too,  imo.

    What is with that giant sumP

    Do those things carry a couple of gallons of oil?


  3. People who weren't around then can't really understand how huge and influential shows like Laugh In and Sullivan were.

    There hasn't been anything like them for a couple of generations.

    They were so socially pervasive that even car models were named after bits from Laugh In.

    I don't believe he had the virus. I think it was a ruse to show how innocent the virus is to robust healthy Republicers.

    Exactly - who the fuck recovers from it in a week?

    Especially an old, morbidly obese, drug addled man.

    I don't care what sort of health car he had - that just wouldn't have happened.

    Will we never hear about the real fraud. More votes than registered voters in many states and numerous accounts of ballots being dropped off after voting centers closed. But The States run by criminal organizations declared that all was good. They counted Every Vote, even the Illegal ones.

    I doubt we will ever hear the truth about 2020, until the criminals declare victory when Queen Kamal removes Joe Nobody from office.
    I gave it 2 years but now it seems that Joe needs his wife to finish the press con and I bet Dick Sucking Kamala is slobbering on someone's big hardon right now.

    All hail the first woman and black woman not to be elected to office. Someone who put more young black men in jail to get elected and who bailed out Antifa Thugs who went on to commit more crimes, something that is impeachable.

     

    I have talked to many people (grocery and hardware stores, general public spaces) that I never knew. It seems that spilling your guts to someone in a wheelchair is ok. I have not found one person happy with the new administration. Maybe this political forum is an aberration of a bunch of jack off / rump ranger nobodies' who want a ...........................who knows what.

    It's pretty obvious that you're a full-court-press Trumpalo, so the only people who will talk to you are other Trumpalos

    It seems apparent that oxygen deprivation was the cause of him ending up in a chair.

    Yes!! Whackadoodle Texas Governor Abbott lifted all government restrictions today. He repeated 100% capacity over and over. Crowd those dance halls!! Crowd those bars. Crowd those theaters. Crowd those concerts. Crowd those sporting events!!

    I was humored that nations without aircraft carriers or without a lot of carriers opted for the F/A 18.

    Hornet has two engines - a requirement for us due to the long distances over nowhere that they fly.

    IIRC the F 104 was the last single engine fighter we used

    How about in Medicine hat, Moose jaw, Head smashed In-Buffalo jump, Hope? They aren't exactly "Upper" Canada, but at one point must have been Frontier towns.

    RCMP (Royal Northwest in those days) usually went in first, often a single officer and they had awesome power until appointments were made and things developed.

    Texas, always at the forefront of stupid.

     

    Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced an end to the Texas statewide mask mandate, effective immediately. He also announced that Texas will 100% reopen effective Mar 10th.

    Source: Houston Chronicle
     

    Gov. Greg Abbott announced the end of the statewide mask mandate Tuesday. 

    He also announced that businesses can soon open at 100 percent capacity March 10. In a speech to the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce, Abbott declared that "state mandates are no longer needed" following promising COVID-19 numbers over the last few days. 

    "Too many Texans have been sidelined from opportunity," Abbott said. "... This must end. It is now time to open Texas 100 percent." 

    Any local order mandating masks is no longer valid, Abbott said. A local county judge may order restrictions if regional COVID-19 hospitalizations reach 15 percent.

    Look at the upside - a future with fewer Texans.
