Thick Skin Flush with Embarrassment

Thick Skin Flush with Embarrassment

True terror is to wake up one morning and discover your high school class is running the country. ~Kurt Vonnegut My thick skin breaks the arrows of embarrassment as if they were threads of ice. In other words, I am not easily embarrassed. But…but I am intensely embarrassed that my generation has allowed our country […]

Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it. ~Mark Twain Muricans has confused being a patriot, standing up for and protecting one’s country, with believing their country is right even when performing evil against humanity either inside or outside the imaginary lines called borders.

You must close your eyes otherwise you won’t see anything. ~Lewis Carroll I wish I could close my eyes at 12:30 pm tomorrow and see the plane landing 15 hours later in Taipei…better yet…22 hours later in Manila. I am dreading the upcoming flights to the Philippines and the return a fortnight later.

Impossible Political Discourse?

Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. ~Lewis Carroll I live in a fantasy world of my own making. Everything I absorb is filtered through the warped David lens.

I’m not strange, weird, off, nor crazy, my reality is just different from yours. ~Lewis Carroll It is with superluminal speed we judge those appearing to be outside our understanding of normal, the fringe element, the dress funny, the rainbow hair. It is with equal speed each of us proudly claims to be a unique […]

Blindfolded by Colored Bits of Cloth

Flags are bits of colored cloth that governments use first to shrink-wrap people’s minds and then as ceremonial shrouds to bury the dead. ~Arundhati Roy The world is awash in fake patriotism when they ascribe sacred qualities to objects rather than the underlying principles the objects represent. The US Constitution and Bill of Rights were […]

Even The Asshole Has a Purpose

It isn’t necessary to be anti-national to be deeply suspicious of all nationalism. ~Arundhati Roy We frequently mistake nationalism for patriotism. The latter is a healthy respect for one’s own country. The former a myopic belief that one’s own country can do no wrong and anyone questioning the country’s actions is unpatriotic or treasonous.


Keeping the faith of fanatics who feel fired up for anything motorcycles. It’s all about the journey and the philosophy of riding on two wheels. Let’s bring alive the truly unique culture of motorcycling and never let the ride leave the fibers of our being.
