    Ever wanted to own a Harley cheap? Massive numbers of well maintained Harleys and Harley wannabees will be hitting the market shortly. 250,000 riders are expected to attend the Sturgis Rally starting tomorrow....and you know those fat middle aged lawyers, stock advisors, doctors and managers pretending to be Biker Badasses will NOT be wearing virus masks! That means in a few months, that lovingly cared for, vintage Harley will be up for sale by the former rider's estate...and with that many Harleys coming available, prices will be significantly reduced! Start making your purchase plans today!

    Be careful. Some of those beef eating scooter tramps may just be showing you the wrong side of your bean sprout garden.

    I actually can't find the source on this one if that's the case. I'm pretty sure he wrote it. It's pretty funny if you're into dark satire.

    By the way, I pulled into a trading post in the North Country while on vacation earlier in the week, and noted that there were just as many bikers following the distancing guidelines as there were folks who came in cars. That was a little bit surprising to me, but completely debunks the broad brush statement made in that Facebook post, even though its primary purpose was obviously just to elicit a laugh from readers.

    What kind of BS is right!

    This is liberal-planted propaganda, intended to make the religious right look stupid and biased.

    The hands in the photo are not even real and the message is blatantly, in-your-face and ridiculous . . . a completely hapless effort from the inept left.

    I think FD's been hanging with some newfound anti-biker crowd.

    I used to be part of that crowd. They wouldn’t have him.

    You were part of the anti-biker crowd, or the biker crowd?

    Again, satire not propaganda. The obviously fake arms and "RIP in peace" give it away. In my opinion the message is a satirical take on the religious rights tendency to insert religious beliefs into politics, especially in the realm of body autonomy.

    I think FD should get a Harley, even if it means giving up tofu and saving the unicorns.

    Officials Warn Defunding Police Could Lead To Spike In Crime From Ex-Officers With No Outlet For Violence

    LOS ANGELES—Insisting their department provided crucial services that help maintain order in the city, law enforcement officials warned Wednesday that defunding the police could lead to a spike in crime from ex-officers with no outlet for their violence. “The truth is that there are violent people in our society, and we need a police department so they have somewhere to go during the day to channel their rage,” said L.A. police chief Michel Moore, telling reporters that without proper resources, his team would be powerless to take these aggressive individuals off the streets and throw them into a police academy. “If these cuts are allowed to continue, we could be looking at a very real future where someone with a history of domestic abuse is able to terrorize their spouse with impunity instead of being occupied testing out new tactical military equipment or pepper-spraying some random teens. The fact that these dangerous attackers and killers are being gainfully employed by the LAPD is the only thing standing between us and complete chaos.” Moore added that even minor budget cuts could lead to repeat violent offenders walking free instead of spending 10 to 15 years behind a sergeant’s desk.

    Bikers descend on South Dakota for massive rally — with scant COVID-19 precautions
    The coronavirus may be changing the world, but there aren't many signs of the pandemic at the massive annual motorcycle rally being held this week at a small city along Interstate 90 in western South Dakota.

    The scene Saturday at the 80th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally was familiar to veterans of the event, with throngs of maskless bikers packing the streets.

    Motorcyclist Kevin Lunsmann, 63, rode more than 965 kilometres to the rally from Big Lake, Minn., with several friends. Lunsmann said he has attended the Sturgis event every year since 2003 and didn't want to miss the 80th, despite being "somewhat" concerned about COVID-19.

    Still, the crowds of people and rows of bikes surprised him. He said there was no difference from previous years "other than a few people wearing masks."

    Lunsmann said he was avoiding the bars and nightclubs that line the city's main drag this year, but many others were not. They were filled with revellers as the sun set Friday.

    "Everybody's still partying hardy," Lunsmann said.

    Organizers expected the overall crowd to be smaller, perhaps half the size of a normal year, when some half-million people from across the country roar into a town whose population is about 7,000.

    The sheer numbers raise the prospect that this year's rally could spread COVID-19 in a state with no special limits on indoor crowds, no mask mandates and a governor who is eager to welcome visitors and their money.

    "Screw COVID," read the design on one T-shirt being hawked at the event. "I went to Sturgis."

    Bob Graham, 71, was one of the few people wearing masks as he walked along Main Street. "We don't want the virus. We want to come up here a few more years yet," he said.

    A person who spent hours at a bar during the Sturgis motorcycle rally in South Dakota last week has tested positive for Covid-19, state health officials said Tuesday.

    The potential exposure came during the city's 80th annual Sturgis motorcycle rally August 7-16.
    Health experts were concerned the mass gathering could be a "super-spreader" event, as many attendees travel from all over the country -- including coronavirus hotspots -- and could bring infections back home when they return.

    Oh... Defunding the police will lead to a spike in crime alright.... This whole thing is akin to believing opiate usage will drop if we legalize heroin. It's just beyond the pale absurd.
