Re: Howdy friends!

Welcome to the site!

The East Tx folks have fairly regular eat & greets. Be sure to check the Upcoming Rides/Trips/Events forum. They should have an ongoing thread or two.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, youíre a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, youíre a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, youíre a moderate. If you donít want government to intervene anywhere, youíre an extremist. ó Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a Ďdismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. Ė Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction ó the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Yep I'm pretty sure it played a big part in why I'm a pilot. Molding young minds and whatnot.

Haha, not that Iím aware of, but now I have an idea for one. I just kept coming across people calling their klrs pigs and mules and I wanted to be different. Plus oxen are more for larger loads, and well, I ainít tiny!

Reminds me of a children's book I read to my daughter when she was five. "There are rocks in my socks said the ox to the fox."

Re: Howdy friends!

Welcome from Kilgore, flynguy.
The East Texas contingent meets for breakfast the first Satursday of the month, generally at Skyline cafe, Pounds Field -- watch the thread... occasionally we'll meet somewhere else.
We also semi-regularly sort-of sometimes meet for dinner on the third Thursday at an eatery generally selected by the first person to recommend a location.

I wouldnít say Iím a dual sport rider yet. Havenít been off the slab yet on my klr. All my riding before this thanksgiving was over a decade ago and it was all roads, but am looking forward to finally getting off-road with it once I do a few upgrades to tires and suspension.
