Re: Touring, Bikepacking, and Long-Distance Cycling

I'll echo what others have said.. just do it. Do it alone. Ride what you have. I rode a good bit of the Western Wild Lands route https://www.bikepackingroots.org/western-wildlands.html last year. I started riding about 20-30 miles first thing every other morning in the spring till I left for the tri...

Apparently Dr. Birx does not trust the CDC, believes they are inflating Covid19 numbers.

I do not. I simply hold their right to choose higher. Perhaps you're right and they can not make a good decision on their own so anyone who does not have a certain IQ or does not score high enough on some test should just be transferred to a "safe community" where they are not allowed to m...

Re: USA UBI starts?? Automatic Boost to Communities Act

A wealth transfer would imply taxes were paying for it. The plan (albeit a bit outlandish) is to have the Mint coin 2, 1 trillion dollar coins and have the Fed buy them at face value to provide the cash to distribute. So at current spot prices the coins would weigh 1.38 billion pounds.

USA UBI starts?? Automatic Boost to Communities Act

The link below is a download of the this new act introduced by Rashida Tlaib. Basically a "temporary" UBI. $2000.00 initially and $1000.00 every month there after up to a year after the end of Covid19 crisis. It will be given on a preloaded debit card. What are your thoughts? https://tlaib...

Re: What is going on with Joe Biden? (losing his mind?)

I've heard a theory they pushed Biden to beat out Bernie, specifically to sacrifice him in the Election. Sort of a malicious "we lost because poor old Joe was loosing his mind."

Re: How to make more money without much of any schooling?

Hey Johnny have you thought about joining a trade? I'd suggest going the union route if you do. Would probably need a vehicle though. The pay is decent to start but after a couple years you could easily be making your 50k target. Good luck!
