Podcast interview from Lance talking about his return to racing in 2017 with George Hincapie, Christian Vande Velde and Dylan Casey in the Old Pueblo 24 hour Mountain Bike race.
“Anytime you have an entire nation so mesmerized by the antics of the political ruling class that they are oblivious to all else, you’d better beware. Anytime you have a government that operates in the shadows, speaks in a language of force, and rules by fiat, you’d better beware.”
“What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could understand it, it could not be released because of national security… This separation of government from people, this widening of the gap, took place so gradually and so insensibly, each step disguised (perhaps not even intentionally) as a temporary emergency measure or associated with true patriotic allegiance or with real social purposes. And all the crises and reforms (real reforms, too) so occupied the people that they did not see the slow motion underneath, of the whole process of government growing remoter and remoter.”—Historian Milton Mayer, They Thought They Were Free: The Germans, 1933-45

I’ll admit, I’m no Breitbart fan, but I am quickly becoming a Milo fan…
The Leftist Progressive is slowly (though I wish more rapidly) becoming irrelevant as it applies to media, policy, laws and culture. Not that I will be pleased that this will eventually be a defacto victory for the Right-Wing zealots. When indeed it should be a victory for common-sense liberty minded individuals. But alas, the Left-Right paradigm is a strong perception, albeit ultimately an illusion…
In any case, listen to a short clip from Milo. (Caution to the Leftist, Statist, Ideological Muppets…) you WILL get angry and throw a hissy fit, because your lot tend to be an emotional animal, devoid of logic and reason… 😉
One of my favorite Rollerman vid’s…it’s Jean Yves Blondeau on a downhill run with longboarder, Nico Bonnefoy.
Quick clip of the soon-to-be famous crash that occurred during the sprint finish of the
Cat 3 Santa Barbara Road Race. The rider in question made a great save to avoid falling 30 feet off the bridge, down to a creek bed below! Disaster avoided… Can you say “lucky boy” 😀
Here’s a quick video of one of my favorite youtube channels…Seth’s Bike Hacks
a 5 minute clip on some practical tips & tricks…that’s right, tips & tricks- NOT ‘hacks’ lol
(back in my day sonny, a hack was someone who sucked. Someone who was bad at something. “Oh man, that guy was a hack on the axe dude..he couldn’t even play half of eruption!” So tips & tricks it is lads and lasses!
Another brill post by the ever keen Mr Christopher Booker mates.
” –China and India formally notified the UN that, to keep their economies growing, they intend between them to build more than 800 new coal-fired power stations; and that by 2030 – as already the world’s first and third largest emitters of CO2 – they plan to double and treble those emissions. Even by the BBC’s standards, as one expert observer put it, this farrago of “deluded groupthink was stunning”.“
