These old tired eyes have seen a lot. Never did I dream I'd see the things that I've seen the last three years. You know what I mean? I bet you do. The crazy has no limit, so it seems. It's as if the matrix software has been toggled to insane mode and we're living in some crazed oligarch's head.
We, the people, have been divided on so many levels, by design. If we agree on one thing, there's dozens of other things to disagree about. The dividers have had centuries to hone their skills. Divide and conquer has always been the tactic of those that wish to rule you and I and with the advances in technology and psychological manipulation it's a wonder that we still have any modicum of civility left in us. The division has gone much deeper than the left/right dichotomy with both sides being subdivided into multiple facets of hatred, diverging from the macro, to the molecular, to the atomic and sub-atomic. The divisions run deep. It seems like every day a new way to divide us is contrived.
We, the people must hold our ground and not fall for the division tactics. We need to stand together in this struggle of our lives. There are forces that are hoping for civil war 2.0, let's not give it to them. They hope for a reason to clamp down hard. I think many people understand that, let's hope so.
If you're reading this, congratulate yourself, you've withstood the most intense propaganda and mind control program ever unleashed on humanity in all of history. There's most assuredly more to come, gird your loins and keep your mind clear. It's all hands on deck to make the future ours and not some fevered dream of some psychopaths dead set on making the world their oyster while we lose our humanity.
The struggle is not horizontal, it's vertical.
Rolling thunder, the sound of Harleys. Well, not for much longer.
“At some point in time, Harley Davidson will be all-electric,” the executive recently told [architecture and design magazine] Dezeen. “But that’s a long-term transition that needs to happen. It’s not something you do overnight.”
Zeitz’s pronouncement seems guaranteed to make a not-insignificant portion of the manufacturer’s customer base cringe. For many enthusiasts, the thing that really sets a Harley apart from other motorcycles — American-made or otherwise — is a thunderously loud internal combustion engine. But the company knows that no matter how important those large-displacement mills might be change is on the horizon.
What about that sound of power, like a stampeding herd of buffalo, that only Harleys can muster? An electric motorcycle can't come close, right? I have a suggestion.
On the cusp, Ranting Rooster and myself will be at Luckenbach Texas on April 1 for a little R&R. Anyone else interested? The great western swing band, Asleep at the Wheel, is playing.
