I don't think Goeff quit the forum, he is just taking a break. Goeff is an intense person and had to give himself breathing room to get his project underway and accomplished. He probably felt he couldn't spend the time to try to support his political position against a group of dumb-dumbs
you guys probably don't care much about some young wippersnapper and all the crazy he gets to inherit...
I very much agree with Geoff politically, but I avoid the political topics like doomed1. I try to ask myself regularly if I am putting my politics before my serenity. I will work my @ss off on a campaign, but I see no use in debating politics on my favorite motorcycle forum. I am grateful that very little of it leaks outside of the Campfire Talk.-Rick
11 days since we have seen clamp too. Do you think Geoff and Clamp are the same person?
This, however, raises the next issue. Larry (LJREAD), I don't quite get your post. Usually you are very even handed, even in disagreement. In this post you use disparaging remarks such as "warped desire" and " 'dumb' pack mentality". I do agree with most of your position. Some people do take things out of context and use this in mindless attacks. I get this. And yes, too many people mindlessly follow vocal demagogues without thinking. But the wrongs you cited were not solved by calm rational discourse. Somebody whipped the rabble up to a frenzy to effect change. From what I can see you have described humanity. There will always be discord. There will always be disagreement and misunderstanding. There will be leaders and followers. Some of both will be good, some not. I think that if we can understand this to some level these discussions will not get so contentious. We should not take these discussions so seriously. I was sorry to see Geoff go. The people that bothered him most were the very people he should have ignored. I don't agree with a lot of his positions, but he has his right to them. I would never disparage that. I don't always agree with you either, but you seem very pragmatic. That's why I didn't quite get your post. I hope things are OK with you. You seem a little tense in the same way I was with Clamp. Well I think now I am just rambling, so I'll sign off. What do you guys think?

I like Geoff, but don't agree with his poltics.I guess that makes me a" dumb-dumb"Again ,I think he should stayed with the forum at least till he finished his ride. Then he should of grabbed a Coke and cigarette gathered his thoughts. Hind sight is 20/20.Any takers on the REA editor?
It's "wake up call" time folks, or you're gonna see things that you never ever wanted to see happening in this nation.
