CISPA almost passed once before, but we stopped it. We need everyone who signs this petition to share it with their networks so that we can defeat CISA before it destroys privacy. Sign & share now!

"I'm glad we were able to talk about her vice and her evils. There is an even more important topic I'd like to discuss. The dysfunctional bastards of the Ronald Reagan Era. Young men that learned to do everything spiteful. This is your generation. Live fast and die young. Who's willing to explain this story?"



Chapter Six LYRICS
By Kendrick Lamar


1980 marked a sudden change in the American political climate, ushering the “Ronald Reagan Era”

The Reagan Administration, and through efforts made by the CIA, allowed Nicaraguan “Contra” resistance fighters (who were attempting to overthrow the local communist government, a reoccurring theme in the Cold War) to traffic cocaine to the United States. This was in order to fund their war effort after Congress explicitly banned any form of militaristic aid from the government to the rebels.

What resulted from this covert affair was the “crack explosion” in the 1980s that flooded the ghettos with the drug and halted further progression of the poverty stricken minorities living in large cities.

Similarly, when Congress banned any militarist aid to Iran, the administration used Israel as the middleman by making them sell weapons to Iran and have the U.S. reimburse Israel with the same weapons, while all the profits going to the United States.

Furthermore, the Reagan Administration “Just Say No” anti-drug campaign was white propaganda to make U.S. citizens hate and despise those who lived in the ghetto, as if they were solely responsible for inflicting damage upon themselves and their community.

Lastly, Reagan’s Trickle Down and Supply Side economics, coined “Reaganomics”, was a Trojan horse. He gained support for slashing the top tax bracket from 70% to 28% by giving small tax cuts across the board. But these were countered by new taxes that Reagan called “user fees” and “revenue enhancers”. And through loop holes created in the tax code by the Reagan Administration, large corporations went virtually untaxed in the 1980s and following decades.

David Stockman, then Reagan’s budget director played an important role in selling the gimmick to the American people

Now do you see why they are dysfunctional bastards that learned to do everything spiteful?

I read a blog somewhere and the guy said one of his regrets was training and missing the ride. Two days ago, my primary bike broke and it is in the shop for a week for warranty parts. I road my lil racer yesterday and well, just not my normal commute. Today, I decided that I would smell the roses. Instead of normal bike clothes and performance while riding to work on my mind, I wore my relaxed normal shorts and nice shirt. Got out my 29er Cruiser and had a very relaxed and enjoyable 9mph cruise to work. WOW!!!! While we all have our reasons to ride, take that time every now and again to just take a very simple relaxing ride. Diggin It All In FLA!!!

I'm not saying I am Chuck Norris, however, we are never in the same room together.
Introduction
My life changed a couple years ago and I have been enjoying it since then.  
And it has changed again and I pray it never stops changing.
Was really bummed out and moved to FLA, thought for sure this would be short lived as well as I.
Then I realized, I was in heaven and have been given a completely brand new start, so what to do.
While walking Mikayla, I realized I want to LIVE.
Plain and Simple- Live
Good things really only come to those that can recognize them and bad things to those that want them.
Only accepting what I can see and all that I see is GOOD.

Needed to find something for a No Fear teenager. Found it. Dane and his aircraft brought a smile worth every bit of the cost and then double or more. Dane took the time to show us both all what was in store for my boy, then off they went. This is the first thing my boy has been on that brought back more smiles than anything else. All he talked about that night, was his flight. If you have a teen, that is an impression worthy of just about anything!!.. Recommend for anyone from the Not Skeered to the Heck No, Dane is a pure professional.

I really want to write this in a way to keep others from coming, only because I want to be selfish. Reality, there is no way I could say even an inkling of negativity about Mill Dam Resort. Found them on short notice and could not believe what I saw online and from exchanging text with a gentleman that I will forever refer to as Tom Bodett from Motel 6 commercials. The reason for that, was a text that said, "The door is unlocked, the key is on the counter and we left the light on for you." WOW!!!! We drove up there in the dark of night, during bad rain storms. As soon as we pulled in, the weather lifted as if the universe knew had arrived. That may or may not happen to you, IMO it probably will. The trailer at night seemed possibly not the best, but once we got in, OH MY!!!! Great place. When the dawn of light peered on Saturday morning, the outside proved to be even better than the warmth of the trailer. I ride and hike, where Mill Dam is located, allows for a nice breakfast ride before eating that does include a 7 mile ride to the Ocala National Park entrance, then a few or bunch of miles into the woods on roads from hard pack to sugar sand. The roads are full of friend type folks that oozed friendliness to bikers, not that the park has anything to do with that, it really is part of the package. In summation, at worst you get good value for your money. Reality, WOW!!!! I cannot believe just how awesome this place was and will be as soon as we come back. Thanks for leaving that light on Tom!!!

New to the area and just was not sure where to go. Came in and spoke with Mark. Before going, I was begrudgedly ready to get a different bike as my butt has become way too large for my seat and I dont care for that poking feeling.... Anyhow, he took some time with me, discussed bikes and really listened to me. Then, seeing how much I love my Gary Fisher, suggested that he could make my bike "feel" much better. I got it yesterday and slapped on about 10 miles as a tester.... OH MY This place has was you need, want and most importantly LISTENS.

I have tried very hard to get along here as it is only a mile from my house. Not once have I been treated like my business was desired. Today took the cake. My son popped a tube and needed it replaced. This is the third one in 3 days and all because he is a kid. I stopped at lunch to pay for the tube replacement before he got there. Instead of saying, sure and if it is more we will call. Guy was like no there may be more wrong and yada yada yada...... A couple month before I came into look at a new bike, told my range 3-4k, guy would only show me a road bike at 10K and that was about all he would show me. There are 3 other bike places that I would walk to before I ever set foot in an establishment that does not want my business, money or patronage.
