2 Million bikers mobilized in one week! 



Good Morning,  !

Today is Thursday, September 12

The 9/11 "Million Muslims March against Discrimination"
got roared over by about 2 Million bikers from Canada and 
almost every US state. 

Whining against discrimination on 9/11 hit a nerve in 
an awful lot of good people in North America.
The US/Canada border evaporated, and anybody, who had a 
bike and could afford the hotels, took off for DC, 
without notice.

The most incredible part of the backlash was the perfect
and lightning fast mobilization. We all know that the 
Government would NOT be able to mobilize TWO MILLION people,
and would not have a snowbal's chance in hell to get 
TWO MILLION people to one awkward spot in the country.

The cops gave up counting bikes when the number went over 
1 Million. "Well over 1 Million bikes, many of them with
a passenger". And it was all organized with practically no 
advance notice, just via newsletters, blogs and Facebook.

Big media, which is predominantly pro-democrat or 
pro-communism, hung back and ignored the build-up, hoping 
this patriotic outburst would fizzle.

When it did not fizzle, but succeeded beyond all expectations,
then the media had to grudgingly acknowledge it.

Bikers, whether they be sweet little old ladies or big, gruff
Vietnam vets or young widows of Afghanistan heroes or people
who have done Route 66, are as a group a lot more patriotic
and loyal to the country, than Toyota Prius driving yuppies
or any other group you care to name.

I wonder if the politicians are aware of the awesome power 
in that group, and the power of the Internet to mobilize
people?

Have FUN!

A Congressman was once asked about his attitude toward whiskey. "If you mean the demon drink that poisons the mind, pollutes the body, desecrates family life, and inflames sinners, then I'm against it. "But if you mean the elixir of Christmas cheer, the shield against winter chill, the taxable potion that puts needed funds into public coffers to comfort little crippled children, then I'm for it." "This is my position, and I will not compromise!"
A man and a woman are driving along when they see a wounded skunk on the side of the road. They stop, the woman gets out, picks it up, and brings it into the car. She says, "Look, its shivering, it must be cold. What should I do?" He says, "Put it between your legs." She says, "What about the smell?" He says, "Awww, just hold its nose." When she hit him with the skunk, it sprayed her.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Nikkita Frye, 34, Evansville, Indiana Jailed After Stripping Naked, Attempting To Punch Passing Cars Nikkita Frye, a 34-year-old Indiana woman, was jailed Saturday after she allegedly stripped naked and began attacking cars along Riverside Avenue. According to Evansville police, officers were dispatched to the area after witnesses reported seeing a naked woman that was jumping into traffic and attempting to punch cars as they passed. When officers located Frye a short distance away, she immediately laid on the ground - still without any clothing on. Officers at the scene covered Frye with a jacket until they were able to find her dress and talk her into putting it back on. During questioning, Frye appeared confused and was unable to follow basic instructions. She later told investigators that she had been using cocaine and bath salts prior to the incident. While officers attempted to process the scene, Frye continued to yell at and challenge pedestrians who had gathered nearby to watch the melee. When officers told Frye to stay next to a patrol car, she took an aggressive stance and began smacking her hands together as if she was attempting to provoke a fight with officers. When officers asked her to turn around so they could handcuff her, she resisted and attempted to punch them. Officers responded by taking her to the ground and placing her under arrest. She was booked into the Vanderburgh County Correctional Complex and charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting arrest. While that kind of behavior is typical for bath salt users, the use of bath salts does not count as an excuse. The boneheads get charged for what they did, not for what they consumed. Tech Support Pits From: Ellen Re: PayPal split payment Dear Webby, Can I split an invoice into two separae PayPal payments, one to me and one to my partner, by putting another PayPal button onto the Thank-You page? Ellen Dear Ellen Technically you could do that. But when PayPal catches you, then you and your partner will suddenly, without any warning, have no more PayPal accounts, and extreme difficulty getting new ones. PayPal is very easy to get along with, as long as you follow the rules. Their rules are quite clear about that: No split payments. I don't know their exact reasoning for that rule, but I have a hunch they were told by the IRS to be strict about that. That means, YOU have to report the income for the whole amount, file a W9 for your partner, and report paying your partner. You can try it with two totally separate invoices, with absolutely no detectable link between them, but be careful! Have FUN! DearWebby

Three Valley Girls were applying for the last available position on the Highway Patrol. The detective conducting the interview looked at the three of them and said, "So you'd like to be cops?" The Valley Girls all nodded. The detective got up, opened a file drawer and pulled out a file folder. He opened it up, pulled out a picture, and said, "To be a detective, you have to be able to detect. You must be able to notice things such as distinguishing features in a suspect." He stuck the photo in the face of the first Valley Girl, and withdrew it after about two seconds. "Now," he said, "Did you notice any distinguishing features about the man?" The Valley Girl immediately said, "Yes, I did. He has only one eye!" The detective grabbed the photo, shook his head and said, "Of course he has only one eye in this picture. It's a profile of his head. You're dismissed!" The first Valley Girl hung her head and walked out. The detective then turned to the second Valley Girl, stuck the photo in her face for two seconds, pulled it back and said, "What about you? Notice anything unusual or outstanding about this man?" "Yes," said the second Valley Girl. "He only has one ear." The detective put his head in his hand and exclaimed, "Didn't you hear what I just told the other lady? This is a profile of the man's head. Of course you can only see one ear. You're excused, too!" The second Valley Girl sheepishly walked out of the office. The detective turned his attention to the third and last Valley Girl and said, "This is probably a waste of time, but let's try this again." He held the photo in front of her for a few seconds and withdrew it, saying, "All right. Did you notice anything distinguishing or unusual about this man?" The Valley Girl said, "I did. This man wears contact lenses." The detective frowned, took another look at the picture, and began looking at some of the papers in the folder. He looked up at the Valley Girl with a puzzled expression and said, "You're absolutely right. His bio says he wears contacts. How in the world could you tell that by looking at this picture?" The Valley Girl rolled her eyes and said, "Duh! With only one eye and one ear, he certainly can't wear glasses!"
