Jan 12th 2011 1:59PMFelic55: Being educated does not make you an elitist, neither does it insure that you have the ability to use the education that has been provided for you. Obviously Ms. Huffington failed to apply lessons learned by most at an early age, that is common courtesy towards others and following the basic rules for the situation you are in. Obviously Ms. Huffington believes that her thoughts on subjects need to be shared with the world at large and that any delay in providing her opinions will have a profound negative affect on the rest of the "Dumbed down Americans". Neither the Blackberry or the IPHONE have an application that turns it user into a someone that values others as much as they value themselves.
Dec 8th 2010 1:25PMHunting in America is enjoyed by millions of people. The meat from game animals and birds is enjoyed by those hunters. Hunting is a tradition in this country. There are and have been many very succesful hunting shows on national television with out protest from the likes of Mr.Sorkin. He should just be honest and admit that his rant (clever or not) is another opportunity to offer some type of attack against Sarah Palin. Hunting and the fees that hunters pay for the privilege of hunting provide the ongoing protection of valued wetlands, forests, protected species as well as education programs around the country. While Mr. Sorkin enjoys the benefits of protected lands and waterways paid for by hunters and fishermen I doubt that he does very much materially to protect those lands. Mr. Sorkin because you do not (or more accurately lack the skils to) harvest your own meat, game or otherwise provide food for your table, your opinions should carry little or no weight. As the saying goes something like this "give a man a fish you feed him today, teach him how to fish (or hunt) and you feed him for a lifetime". Nice thing about Sarah Palin is that she is far closer to the average everyday American than any politician or pundit today.
May 7th 2009 8:48PMI have both sport bikes and Harleys. I am not Black nor am I young. All my bikes are highly customized and have been on the cover of several magazines. I was at "Black Bike Week" last year for the first time. Quite frankly it was one of the most trouble free bike events that have ever been to. Daytona, Laughlin, Hollister, Sturgis all had many more problems than Myrtle Beach last year.
Was traffic bad you bet, better management of the traffic lights would have solved that problem. Were there loud bikes,yep but not every or even the majority of the bike were loud. Were there thongs, yep. No were near as many as were on the beach did the economy of Myrtle benefit? No doubt. The resturants that closed and the stores that closed did not. I am going again this year to North Myrtle Beach and Alantic Beach were the Mayor Retha Pierce has come out saying that all bikers are welcome.
To me this is more an issue of not letting a very small group of people (City counsel) who's views and opinions do not reflect the majority of their citizens ruin a long standing event. Spending our money in North Myrtle Beach and Alantic Beach is the best revenge and lesson that we as bikers can provide.
We all need to make sure that we do all that we can to respect the residents and various neighborhoods we ride in. Have fun at the concerts and gatherings like the ones at the 2001 Entertainment Complex. But when we are on the street give and get respect.
