Fire! Mud! Camping! Three wheels!

Went on a pleasantly snow-free weekend trip with five other hacksters. That's 18 wheels altogether, not counting spares.

More stuff, and a video HERE.

Snot my sticker. But you should Google it. Nothing to do with gay rights. More like free speech.

You should change the Ural to the Chinese electric scooter. Because those people whom you are supporting by this sticker, are saying, what the workers, who make your Ural, are not people, but a cattle and shit.

PetrB probably knows something about Pussy Riot since he lives in Russia. I can sympathize with the free speech and gay rights aspects of their activities but they are also anti-capitalists like the "occupy" protesters which I cannot identify with at all.

Maybe he does, maybe he doesn't. Maybe he just knows what the state controlled media tells him. Maybe I only know what the corporate media tells me. Plus, I, myself, might be an anti-capitalist. You never know.

In any case, putting people in jail for singing a song sounds like douche-baggery in its most pure and fascist form.

But, as Thermos kindly pointed out, the sticker is not mine. I just took a picture of it and posted it. As a frequent messenger, though, I'm used to being shot by people who don't like looking at or hearing things. I can take it.

I hope the spirit of friends, mud and motorcycles can stay afloat in the eddying currents of politics. That's what my post is supposed to be about.

Вот к женщинам, которые поют песни!

Hmmmm !

In spite of davet2's post I find it difficult to believe there are many folks in this country that are seriously anti capitalist, I suspect semantics may play a part.

"If I give food to the poor they call me a saint. If I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist." Dom Helder Camara Brazilian Archbishp Dubbed the Red Bishop by right wing press
Capitalism

"I believe that an economic system, whatever its name (because today there are capitalisms, it's important to stress the plural), whose main concern and sometimes exclusive concern is profit, is also an intrinsically materialistic, inhuman system."
