Principles matter!

Sen. Rand Paul and Republican Sens. Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, and Democrat Sen. Ron Wyden are doing yeomen's work for the people of the United States. I'm not sure what good it will ultimately do, but at least they are trying.

They all have my support and thanks.

Now let's hear from the rest of the GOP. Will you Stand with Rand?

Two years later-

and after posting erratcally at best - I have deleted my Facebook account. What a waste of time. The best thing about this blog is that I can post whatever drivel suits me, since no-one reads it anyway. And if I don't log in, like, hardly ever, who cares anyway?

Who has time to post?

This riding season was a blast.

I have been to Nebraska - a whole lotta flat. Stayed with my sister in Omaha and toured the area a bit. Stopped at Homstead Nat'l Park and hiked a bit. Stopped at the Lewis and Clark Museum overlooking the Missouri River in Platte. Nice time.

Iowa SR2 is a long, but relatively scenic route, especially in loess hills region - much better than I-80.

US 36 through Kansas is interminable, although a stop at the Pony Express museum was interesting for a quick stop.

US 136 in NW Missouri was sweet, but getting off on some of the state and county roads is a treat. Nothing quite like coming over the top of a hill, dropping under a power line and topping the next hill to find 90 degree turn just over the summit. Keeps you AWAKE.

Outran a weather front through Central Illinois on US 136 on the way back.

Made several weekenders in Michigan (both peninsulas) - the UP is spectacular and my favorite restaurant for fish chowder is in Epoufette. Muskegon, MI for Bike Time, which I decided to attend instead of the Boogie. Much more family friendly.

Muskegon, MI - Bike Time (July 2012)

Caught a good concert, drank some beer, made some acquaintances. Good time.

Made numerous other small jaunts and day trips around Ohio, Illinois, Michigan and Kentucky. Many thousands of miles and a case of Monkey Butt later, here it is February and I'm itching to go.

What use is global warming if I can't tour the Old Northwest in February?

This kind of crap...

...is why I bought a windshield. Rainy day in Plymouth, and the day I broke down and bought a windshield.

 
Nothing like a good canopy in a rainstorm.

The campaign will continue, but the fight for primary wins is over...

Inevitable, but sad nonetheless...
****
 

Dear hoosiertoo,

As I reflect on our 2012 Presidential campaign, I am humbled by the supporters who have worked so hard and sacrificed so much.  And I am so proud of what we have accomplished.  We will not stop until we have restored what once made America the greatest country in human history.

This campaign fought hard and won electoral success that the talking heads and pundits never thought possible.  But, this campaign is also about more than just the 2012 election.  It has been part of a quest I began 40 years ago and that so many have joined.  It is about the campaign for Liberty, which has taken a tremendous leap forward in this election and will continue to grow stronger in the future until we finally win.

Our campaign will continue to work in the state convention process.  We will continue to take leadership positions, win delegates, and carry a strong message to the Republican National Convention that Liberty is the way of the future.

Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted.  Doing so with any hope of success would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have.  I encourage all supporters of Liberty to make sure you get to the polls and make your voices heard, particularly in the local, state, and Congressional elections, where so many defenders of Freedom are fighting and need your support.

I hope all supporters of Liberty will remain deeply involved - become delegates, win office, and take leadership positions.  I will be right there with you.  In the coming days, my campaign leadership will lay out to you our delegate strategy and what you can do to help, so please stay tuned.


For Liberty,


Ron Paul

Errata

****
Ron Paul for President! It's sure as death and taxes nothing much will change with the election of any of the bankster candidates. May as well support the only candidate who isn't proposing more of the same, only less. I've sent a few bucks Paul's way. He's not likely to win the nomination, but I haven't been happy with a Repugnicon candidate in many years now. 2012 probably won't be any different.

Much as I detest Barack Obama, I'll pull the lever for the Jackass-in-Chief just for spite if Romney is the Republican candidate. If it's Newt, I'll probaly go Constitution Party again.

****
Sons of Anarchy is my newest guilty TV pleasure. Thank God for for Netlix.

****
Update on my prior Roku review - I now have two of the amazing little boxes. Love 'em to death.

Update on my prior Verizon comments. Still hate 'em. Will switch when the current contract ends. Love my Samsung Convoy phone though. Simply superb.

****
Here's hoping Jim Irsay isn't channeling Al Davis. You'd think grownups would know better than to play Tweet Wars. Yeesh.

****
The Hoosiers and Pacers are back to respectable. The weather has been simply awesome for winter so far at least. The Super Bowl is in Indy. Ain't God good to Indiana? Yay!

****
I rarely feel the urge to post on this blog. I'd very much rather be on a motorcycle going nowhere in particular. Now you know why. Life is Good. God is Great. Live well and prosper, good reader!

Classic!

Best science fiction short story compilation ever! I loved this book as a kid and love re-reading them 40 years after I read hem the first time.

Many of the stories have been adapted to film, among them The Last Mimsy (Mimsy Were the Borogoves), Arena and Charlie (Flowers for Algernon.) These are classic stories in every sense of the word. Whether you like Science Fiction as a genre or not, these stories are must-reads.
