So my New Orleans day trip was a success for both the bike and me. Roughly 320 mi round trip. Made it home with both of us in one piece.

Here we are meeting in Lafayette. The photog got my best side. My back.

At the air port. The hearse is the only black car in the group. My FXR is the only one that isn't a tour bike.

Lost one bike on the way over there. Dipstick was told last week he had a bald tire on the front. Well, it decided to blow out 3 miles from our exit.

No serious injuries, luckily for him and his ol' lady. Had 4 bikes stay behind with him. They caught us on the return trip.

Local news story.

The deputy if front of us had no problem letting the hammer down coming home. It's pretty awesome when you're doing 70, the speed limit's 60, and you've got red/blue lights in front of you to clear the way. ::cool::

No, I'm not talking about the latest putrid TV offering on CBS "All Access" streaming called "Discovery". Two episodes of that, and I was convinced that the franchise is in the wrong hands.

I'm talking about StarTrekContinues .com

Imagine if your community theater had access to every Star Trek set and prop; every uniform; every costume, make up, and hair design; every special effect; every sound effect; all the original musical scoring; and approval from Gene Roddenberry's son to produce a web series for fun, that actually respects and adheres to TOS canon...

That's 11, hour long episodes of "Star Trek Continues" in a nutshell.

The premise is, the show fills in the gap between the last episode of the original series, and the first film, "Star Trek, The Motion Picture".

What they get right: visually and audibly, it's near perfection. The sets are either original, or designed to exactly replicate the original, so that part is a gimme. The lighting, the scene-framing, the pacing, the script-writing, the dialog, all do a very good job of replicating the original series. I can't stress how having the actual musical scoring underlines the enjoyment of the show. It is used to accent scenes in all the familiar ways that made the music of TOS so iconic.

Performances: that is the weak point. As I alluded to, "imagine your community theater..." The fella that plays Kirk does a pretty good job. Scotty is the best, and being that his last name is Doohan, I'm gonna guess he's James Doohan's son. Spock is meh, and McCoy is pretty bad. That bums be out, because the core characters are what made Trek what it was.

And that brings me to the central thing that is lacking - at least after watching one episode (yes, I'm reviewing an 11 episode series after watching one) - the chemistry between Shatner, Nimoy, and Kelley was on-screen magic. So far, these guys don't have it.

But just having "original series" episodes to watch after all these years; all the spin-offs; all the movies; and the meh reboots, and now the awful "Discovery" - I just found it to be really good fun, so I thought I'd share.
Awesome read, Libertas. Thanks for sharing. ::USA::

And it's dusty in here.

On a side note, there are way too few of the Greatest Generation left. I pray their stories will be told to be passed on before they pass on.

Wow, folks on a roll...Pablo with spreadsheet humor, Tom with a snappy cartoon and a desire for a hat (to sport on special occasions I bet, crashing Demonrat events, etc...) and now Weisshaupt with a hilarious list of questions I cannot refuse!  What a day!   :D

1. Do you believe that Black Lives Matter?

No, I believe in all lives mattering...or I did until Progressives became so suicidally and genocidally batshyt effing insane towards those who refuse to think, act and believe as they I believe that they, criminals (some crossover there), Islamists (some crossover there too) and DeepState Cabalists and Crony Capitalists are exempt from that consideration.  So thanks for helping with that!

2. What are your thoughts on gender and sexual orientation?

Is this a trick question?  In short, normal.  As in don't pull genders that don't exist out of your ass...there is no "orienteering" there is only what God and nature created - Men and women.  That one wants to mimic the other or vice-versa or whateverthef**k is bullsh*t people come up with...and I have no time for made up sh*t!

3. How do you work to dismantle sexism and misogyny in your life?

Easy, I don't worry about it.  As alleged it doesn't exist, except from the Left.  Have you noticed all the pervs emerging from the Left lately?  Al "Groper" Franken ring a bell?  From my point of view it is those looking for it so hard that are suffering from it or its inverse.  Have I mentioned I don't put up with bullsh*t?

4. What are your thoughts on sex work?

What is this?  Hollywood?  Harvey Weinstein's office?  Bill Clinton's Oval Office?  You in porn?  A hooker?  Wassamatta, you?!  Work is for work.  Have sex out of work like normal people (and in a consenting manner!), perv!

5. Are you a supporter of the BDS movement?

I am not a fan of the Marquis de Sade...familiar with term "sadist" at all?  Quit being weird!

6. What is your understanding of settler colonialism and indigenous rights?

Unparalleled, actually.  The myth that Asian ancestors settled the America's and gave rise to the so-called native-American's is false, they did come over, but it is clear from archaeological, geographical and yes even "native-American" oral tradition and ancestry that Caucasian Europeans traveled to what is now the eastern seaboard of the United States several thousands of years before the Asian's crossed the Bering Sea land bridge.  So, when later Vikings and Columbus came along...they were merely reinstating previous land claims from the squatter inhabitants.

7. Do you think capitalism is exploitative?

Is the current Pope a Socialist jackass?  Don't use that term "exploitative" are using it in the improper Marxist tone, real Capitalism, not Crony Capitalism or Chinese Free-Marketeering or Russian Oligarchies/Syndicate Capitalism...real Capitalism exploits the natural benefits when people produce goods and services and exchange them for fair value for their use and is a natural and beautiful thing to behold if not gamed, punished, perverted or exploited in the Marxist sense!

8. Can any human be illegal?

Yes.  If you bash in or sneak in through my back door is an illegal entry...thus making the perpetrator a criminal.  if you knock on my front door, I'll assess people on a case by case basis.  This should make perfect sense...if not you must have been raised in a barn...or a commune...both of which are stupid, but the one is way more stupid than the other!

9. Do you support Muslim Americans and non-Muslim people from Islamic countries?

Muslims should stay in Muslim nations, those fleeing Muslim nations should be Non-Muslims fleeing Muslims, certainly there could be a neighboring nation closer than the US that can take those folks in...or are they racist/sexist/homophobes with an exemption of some sort?  Islam is a Satanic death-cult founded by a demon called Mohammad who set up a militantly patriarchal suicidal genocidal cult that mandates the ritual mutilation of young girls and marrying them off at disturbingly young ages, allows husbands to rape and kill them at whim, stones and mutilates people for whatever reason with nothing approaching due process, encourages the enslavement and murder of Infidels (all non-Muslims, especially Jews and Christians) and is the most intolerant and uncivilized group of people on the planet and as such should be banned from our nation for eternity.  Anybody arguing any of those points is ignorant and a danger to themselves and others.  Easy peasy!

10. Does your allyship include disabled folks?

WTF is "allyship"?  Seriously, I had to look this Moon-God bullsh*t up on the infernal-net!

Allyship is not an identity—it is a lifelong process of building relationships based on trust, consistency, and accountability with marginalized individuals and/or groups of people. Allyship is not self-defined—our work and our efforts must be recognized by the people we seek to ally ourselves with.

Holy Guano Bat Man!  What a stupendous load of excrement that is!  Looks like some bullsh*t that oozed under the door at a diseased campus like Berkeley!  Good God what vile dreck that is!  And where is this newfound sympathy for 'disabled' folks?  We normals have been honoring and taking care of our wounded Vets and family members and friends a long time, y'all new to this?  And like the elderly...I thought your Enlightened views of disabled extended only to ushering them to Dr Kevorkian for Carousel on taxpayer dime?  Oh, I got must be only concerned about those Progtard-defined 'disabled' folks you think are on par with real disabled folks!  Yeah, that pig got no wings here, sweety!

Aced it!  Right?!

Yeah...all that "turn the other cheek" stuff makes sense in the general day-to-day...most run-of-the-mill libiot sheeple out there are not worth much of an effort...karma will deal with those ignorant wretches in massive batches when the SHTF...unless they get in my way to be an ass I'm not seeking them out...those that should and must know better - the tainted-water-carriers - now or later they deserve special attention, as do their masters above them.  But as the good book says, for every time there is a season...
I wish I could expect imminent arrests in their futures ...........

So You don't need to give them traffic,  here are 10 Questions you should ask a first date - according to feminists.

1. Do you believe that Black Lives Matter?
2. What are your thoughts on gender and sexual orientation?
3. How do you work to dismantle sexism and misogyny in your life?
4. What are your thoughts on sex work?
5. Are you a supporter of the BDS movement?
6. What is your understanding of settler colonialism and indigenous rights?
7. Do you think capitalism is exploitative?
8. Can any human be illegal?
9. Do you support Muslim Americans and non-Muslim people from Islamic countries?
10. Does your allyship include disabled folks?

Also known as the list of questions that ensure that you will not have a second date with any decent, manly, self respecting male and will end up in your thirties alone and unwanted.

Some more highlights
You may scratch your head at this one, but much like racism and misogynoir, being pro-sex worker is a necessary pillar of dismantling the patriarchy.

Thats right baby, spread my legs so I can bang you and get the hell out of here.

If your date says they’re anti-fascist and part of the resistance but they’re cool with exploiting labor from communities of color and they support the school to prison pipeline, then there’s a good chance they’ll only value you for your ability to nurture them without any reciprocation.

Now give me  free government crap paid for by others.
8's description is really funny

White Americans stole this land, colonized this land, created so many borders, pushed out, killed and enslaved people of color and somehow they have the audacity to claim that this land is theirs and that black and brown immigrants are stealing their jobs, land, and homes? Miss me with that bullsh*t.

So what you are saying is that the American Indians needed some sort of immigration policy - like every other country in the world..?

But hey #9 is a hoot too

Don’t waste your time and energy on dating someone who thinks that Islam is inherently violent or misogynistic. Instead, read some Huda Sha’arawi or Mona Eltahawy to educate yourself further on Muslim feminism.

Now put on your Burka and accept being property under Sharia law.

Via Instapundit this morning.. (H/T INstapundit)

The point is, even if you gathered all of your republican, conservative, libertarian and simply "non-leftists" buddies, and sat and conspired for weeks to concoct the most painful, horrific, devastating form of revenge on just ONE single leftist, the level of revenge you would exact wouldn't even compare to the lives leftists have chosen to live for themselves.  And the reason why is that living outside the real world of economics, romance, love, logic, psychology, sex, friendship, and career ensures you will ruin those things forever in your life.  And not only will you ruin them, they will torture you in every single one of those capacities until you are dead.  Your life will not merely be "wasted" like a happy drunk or pothead, it will be TORTURED as your adamant and desperate belief in leftism never jives with reality.  Again, if you think about it, it's a punishment you'd think twice about meting.

So this Christmas, and for the rest of your life, do not let leftists or the fact they're "getting free money" or "vote against freedom" or "vote to increase your taxes" lessen your finite time on this planet.  Though they'll never admit it, they are getting punished ENOUGH.  Just be happy and take solace in the sanity, serenity, and good mental health that comes with living in the real world.  And as the impoverished single mom feminist screams at you on the internet, or the black nurse says white women should kill their babies, or a university allows you to "self-identify" as a different race, just pour yourself a drink, throw on some jazz, appreciate your non-leftist friends, share this post with some fellow conservatives and enjoy the decline

I had one of my facebook "friends" say she missed having a human in the White House  last night.  I briefly considered writing something to the effect of  "I miss having a civil society where I wasn't assumed to be subhuman because I had different opinions"  or "Don't like Trump, this is how you get more Trump" - But I didn't bother ( see how I have grown)   

I just do not care. And yes, this woman is single and late forties. She brought another woman friend of mine on a date to a wedding - not because she is gay, but because she couldn't get a male date. . She is not and never will be happy, and each day that goes by more and more conservatives are (finally)  coming to the realization that  the society is doomed, it can't get better till we hit bottom, that trying to be fair or decent to these people is a non-starter and that actually engaging these people is completely pointless. Believe me - discovering that they are irrelevant to you deals the best , hardest blow you can deliver to their egos.

Have you noticed that if you fail to do, think, and vote exactly the way that the liberals and their Fredocon minions demand, you’re a racist, sexist, homophobic, child molesting, greedy, NRA terrorist determined to murder kids? Yeah, you probably have. And you’ve probably also realized that if you do everything that the liberals and their Never Trump minions demand, you’re still a racist, sexist, homophobic, child molesting, greedy, NRA terrorist determined to murder kids.

When you understand that, you’re on your way to being conservative woke.

And when you’re conservative woke, you’re ready to deploy the most powerful non-bullet firing weapon in your liberty-loving arsenal – your devastating capability not to give a damn what the liberals and their Conservative, Inc., cruise-shilling Benedict Arnold buddies say.

When you don’t care anymore, they got nothing.....

Donald J. Trump is the avatar of our not caring. Remember, he knows these elitist goofs better than we ever will, and no one has less respect for them. He was in there among them for decades as they sucked up to him and his dough. He dealt with, exploited, and now endlessly owns, the pompous, arrogant, and impotent press.

He knows exactly who these would be arbiters of morality and decency are. And The Donald is not impressed.

And there you have it - the Skill Trump was elected for- stated plainly and concisely.  The Avatar of No longer giving a Sh*t.
