A guy looked at my Harley and said, "I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that motorcycle cost." I replied, "I am not sure, it fed a lot of families in Milwaukee Wisconsin who built it, it fed the people who make the tires, it fed the people who made the components that went into it, it fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires, it fed people in Decatur Il. at Caterpillar who make the trucks that haul the copper ore, I guess I really don't know how many people it fed."
That is the difference between capitalism and welfare mentality. When you buy something you put money in peoples pockets and give them dignity for their skills. When you give someone something for nothing , you rob them of their dignity and self worth. Capitalism is freely giving your money in exchange for something of value, Socialism is taking your money against your will and shoving something down your throat that you never asked for.
I spotted this on FB (it has its uses) kind of rings a little true for me. A welfare mentality has been created in British society by loss of industry and jobs leading to loss of dignity, desperation and no hope --- oh and of course a succession of self serving out of touch political parties . --- just a thought as we went off on a tangent re benefits.
My point here is, there are alot of black riders out there that aren't given a chance to Motogp, WBSK, BSK and TT.
Just remember that most of the Moto3 and some of the Moto2 field are paying for their rides, and about half the MotoGP field does not get paid by their teams. Being a great rider is not good enough - you have to bring family/sponsorship money with you unless someone thinks that you will be a future alien.
Not sure if you are being serious or sarcastic, since I am not a native speaker of the proper English language.
WSS has an even worse gap, since stupid Laguna Seca cannot figure out how to host both series in the same weekend, unlike every other track on the schedule - Dorna should tell them to get lost, just at they did for Moto World Championship (they of course used to run MotoGP there, but not Moto2 and Moto3).
BSB & TT
Buying and selling
If you have a thick skin, consider a Honda Deauville.
Had one as a loan bike some years ago when my Blackbird was being serviced. Actually far better than their reputation suggests and its easy to see why those looking for a workhorse buy them.
MCN Fantasy Road Race 2015 - in association with Bennetts.co.uk
I have (like others) been emailing the 'Silent Manager' about my points being incorrect by -12 points for rounds 16, 17 & 18.
This weekend (round 19) my points were still incorrect to a sum of +49 points this time.
Logging into Fantasy Website this lunchtime, I find they are now correct (hooray) or have I spoken to soon?
Congrats & credit to whoever sorted this pile of c**p out.
I take back all I said (well almost).
