    Mini Air Compressor

    Just ordered one of these "Stop & Go" mini air compressors for carrying on my motorcycle. I hope it works. There are a lot of good reviews and some bad reviews too. I actually wanted a different compressor but it is out of stock and a new model is supposed to have been available this month...

    15% higher food prices by October 2020

    Major food suppliers are warning of even higher prices. At least one supermarket chain owner is projecting a minimum of 10% higher prices by October and probably 15% is reasonable on most food items. We have been intentionally letting our food supply drop down. We are at 50% of our pandemic...

    Keystone XL Pipeline suing the government for $15 BILLION

    TC Energy is suing the Biden administration over a "breach of the United States' free trade obligations." Well I have to wonder if Biden's decision to cancel the pipeline, on his first day in office, is going to bite him in the ass with teeth as hard as a pit bull's? This was a job killer...

    Marijuana legalization to become a Senate Priority

    Not posting this in the political area because this is a bi-partisan issue, although it is the Democrats that are leading in the US Senate on the issue. I'm posting it here because it seems like it is more of a crime, drug, recreational and even economic discussion rather than one of pure...

    Just how divided are these United States?

    Interesting to see how, 1 nation of 50 states, can exist when the opinions on its direction are so divided when asked if the country is going in the "right" or the "wrong" direction. If you look at the 2 main parties you very clearly see that they are near polar opposites in their views. But...

    One of the best TEAM USA athletes just got suspended for smoking weed

    There are some interesting questions to be posed here. Many states have decriminalized smoking pot, others have outright legalized it. But it is still illegal on the federal level. So the Americans follow the federal laws for our Olympic athletes. Many of us also yell and scream about how...

    My motorcycle is barely an Adventure Touring motorcycle, its pretty much a wimp in the category as it is not really designed for heavy off-road use, but I wonder why it weighs so much. Mine is 525# wet. Compare that to a 800-900 pound Harley Davidson or Indian and mine seems like a...
