Loud pipes don’t help Tanc

We want to be free to ride our machines without being hassled by the man.

Tom rides the same way he legislates - no helmet

The Denver Post reports that gubenatorial hopeful Tom Tancredo pulled a savage brody today on South Broadway after allegedly being cut off by another motorist (I’m waiting to see the police report – if one ever materializes).

Tancredo, who ironically sponsored legislation that made wearing a helmet voluntary, wasn’t wearing one and miraculously escaped injury despite his only protection being a t-shirt and blue jeans. So much for the ‘loud pipes’ theory.

Tancredo is 64 years old.

We’re to believe that a man of that age who doesn’t have the wits to wear proper protection while riding a very large and powerful motorcycle in heavy urban traffic is somehow qualified to be governor of the state?

Tancredo was quoted as saying: “She just didn’t see me.”

He had the same problem with Wadhams and he clearly didn’t learn from that road-rash either.

    He may not have had a brain injury this time, but somewhere along the line he did.

    Oh I think the Tanc’s completely safe from any brain injury.

    Tanc perhaps thought he was ten feet tall and bulletproof and FREE; hence, no helmet! But what sort of irresponsible example does this behavior offer our young people? Peter Fonda made “Easy Rider,” too. No helmets. I was pretty angry after seeing it the first time (1968). I harbor no disrespect for the “dew-rag” crowd. But I think that often we really do get a response from life based on how we live it. If anyone out there is truly enamored with having Tanc as governor, I have a WWII-era lapel badge I’d sell you. It’s authentic, and will get you into all the “best” places. $1,000. No credit cards.

    Mr. Wray: I regret that your late wife apparently cannot rest in peace. There are still those who even today besmirch the reputations and memories of Martin Luther King, Jr., John Kennedy and Robert Kennedy. I seriously doubt any of them knew any of those fallen figures. Yet I do not hear any diatribe against Timothy McVey. Hmmmm.

    Thank you Gregory. If the monsters doing it were man (or woman) enough to say it to my face it would be different, but being cowards they hide behind their friends at the Times-Call. The fact that the Lehmans don’t put a stop to it says much to me and to the community as well.
