    The bird-shit laden rock almost said the thousand words, but looking at the background area, having a trash-can/ash-tray behind a rock that had a certain logo ment that people with bad lungs would cower behind a rock hiding or something. Then scan farther back and to see a garbage dumpster, also meant that it was a place that produced a lot of trash, that needs a large truck that weighs over 3 tons to pick up and to dispose of in a waste-management compound. The tree's behind the rock show a definite pollination ritual pronouncing that spring is here, and the larger shrubbery in front of the rock shows the lack of normal gardening skills. The spacing of those examples of plant taxonomy is a disgrace to any botanists.

    This location brings poverty effeminates to purchase the low costing and normally neanderthale-istic mode of transportation, to.......

    sorry...

    I can't get a thousand word for that picture...

    I tried.:(

    haha "here lies harley davidson. a brand that once stood for being a social outcasts and dealing meth to 6th graders now stands for the yuppie pussification of america and the capitalistic mindset that it represents. the fact that you can buy an image that you once looked up to as a symbol of freedom has now entrapped its demographic into working a salary job to pay 20K for a mass produced ideology that has lost its soul. R.I.P."

    And your problem with capitalism is...? Without a capitalist society company's like Harley, and Honda for that matter would never exist. Without the financial gains of pushing an idea forward and letting the free market determine if it is worthy or not, the Harley, the Honda, or the computer your typing on would never exist. Wait and see how many new ideas people are pushed to persue once this new socialist regime puts everyone on government welfare and we're all kicking back on 50 (worthless) U.S. dollars a week.

    "capitalistic mindset" can mean many things. i think you took it too literally.

    Please, explain your definition of capitalistic mindset. I believe that there is absolutely nothing wrong the capitalist mindset that drove William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson to start Harley Davidson in the first place. And im sorry if i take offence to what you said, but as a firm believer in a free market system and as a Harley Davidson owner who paid considerably less than $20k, there's really no other way to take your words other than literally.

    well im not going to get into it with you because you have a dog in this fight (being a harley owner) so ill keep it short and sweet.

    i meant by "capitalistic mindset" as a negative for two reasons.

    1. the behavior and tendencies of companies who are successful often do not have the best interest of the consumer in mind. this is a result of a market driven production policy (i.e. overproducing, outsourcing, focus groups and inflated cost/production ratios) which in turn, falsely (or accurately) embodies the mindset of someone who is paying an excessive amount of money to claim an image of freedom and independence.

    2. the type of capitalism that is prevalent within our society today is not pure capitalism. it is a mutant bastard child of what the political philosopher adam smith had in mind. our ideology of what capitalism is has been grossly augmented by people like milton friedman and other so called free market economists. so when i say "capitalistic mindset", i am meaning the ideology of what the majority of the american population thinks is pure capitalism, which is pedagogically enforced by every single entertainment medium we come into contact on a daily basis.

    Good Insight....beavis and butthead cartoons have paid off for you in spades!!

    Buy more....Lust more....Want more.....Borrow more. Next thing you know.....houses values will sky rocket and people will get 3rd mortgages to get that new SUV or that family wakeboard boat?

    Oh...wait...that shit already happened lol

    Speculating, gambling and losing in order to full-fill those "needs" But that why you can gt a nice ass used Harley for cheap from these guys that can't afford their mortgage anymore.

    But who am I to judge? I got a POS Honda that has way more into it then it was ever worth lol

    any society is corrupt
    therefore someone stands to gain for making accomplishments, no matter what type of society they exist in

    progress and greed trump all
    and human nature and its deviant soul guarantee rewards under all conditions
