  1. I agree 100%, my view is they all start off innocent with the right intentions and soon as they are elected 180 degree turn so none can be truly trusted.

    They fall into the pockets of the lobbyist.
    Money makes the world go round, so they say.
    You need to be a very motivated person to enter the political arena but their motives are all wrong.
    I suppose we`re stuck with it because any citizens that try to speak out against it are silenced.
    I think this will be my first and last rant on these subjects.

    I remember this episode now.
    It was the late 1970`s and early 80`s that I had a gig as Freddy Mercury`s sex stunt stand in double.
    I would look after the young ladies whilst Freddy went trawling the bars and clubs for young naval ratings.
    I was at the bar asking for cheese and pineapple cubes on cocktail sticks (you can do that when you are a celebrity), anyhow Lo Phat appears by the side of me and accuses me of getting free cheese just because I was a famous queen. I shouted at him "I`m not Elton bloody John you cheeky ba******* and you can see the results for your self.

    I think you’re on to something there Wild.

    Pontius Pilate wanted to do the right thing at first but ended up turning over an innocent man to be crucified.

    He was probably a libertarian or running on a 3rd party ticket and didn’t need the controversy.

    Barabus was cool with it though.

    Freedom fighter or terrorist? One mans meat is another mans poison.
    I think Jesus was a very well meaning person but posed a threat to the Jewish establishment.
    Most Roman ethics would be considered barbaric by any modern civilized country.
    This is all I have to say about that.

    I knew that my ebike would come in for some flak but I am not bothered as I am an old hippy at heart and I love my mother earth more than anything.
    Most people don`t give her a second thought and are not concerned for their children and grand children. If we keep exploiting the Old Dear like we have there will be nothing for future generations.
    Without her we are all dead and we should all be thankful for her bounties and not abuse her, but greed has put her at great risk and we should all try to do a bit to help.

    It takes more bottle to ride a small bike than it does a big one:D

    Electric motorcycles are nothing to turn your nose up to. The Isle of Man has an electric division (TT Zero) and those bikes get around the course at an average speed of right at 100 m.p.h. and the Superbikes at roughly 130 m.p.h. Plus the power comes on like a rheostat! Some people think a motorcycle that doesn't have a throaty exhaust just isn't right but I would personally love to have the reduced noise while riding through the countryside. :)

    What type of E bike do you own BB?

  15. All these electric bikes and cars are built using fossil fuels and more, how are the batteries made, heck as they wear out where are we going to dispose of them . There is no energy source that regenerates or is self sufficient without using fossil fuels somewhere down the line. Yes less carbon footprint afterwards but how much larger is the footprint to build it.

    I wasn't really speaking to the virtues of the carbon footprint, just that the technology has advanced so much and that the prospect of a virtually quiet form of transportation would be very cool. ;) The only way I can think to eliminate fossil fuel use all together in manufacturing and powering vehicles is to go back to the foot powered cars of the Flintstones. :p:p Yabba dabba do. :D This was an American cartoon of the sixties that I used to watch as a kid.

    This fellow had a great idea but it failed in the end. He was born in my hometown of Mobile, Alabama. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newman's_energy_machine

    Electric motors are very efficient and powerful, it`s the fuel storage system that is the problem (batteries).

    Didn't know it aired in Canada. The modern stone aged family. :) I remember as a kid wondering how the heck the rear stone wheel stayed on the wooden frame, lol. Those were the good ole days where there wasn't a care in the world!
