  1. Who's headed out for MLK (18-21 Jan)? My normal group might not be going. Looking for a group to ride with.

    Figure Me This, Broken tube.

    It's horrible and had been horrible. The sand has stayed wet this year and very little wind to actually groom it. Definitely the worst I have seen it in the last 20 years.

    Because the choke will put more gas and less air in. With a clogged jet, you're not getting enough gas for the mixture.

    Carb and maybe old gas. As mentioned...clean the carb again...this time...put new jets in it. They are only $4-5 each. A main and definitely a pilot. Rinse the tank out with fresh gas...dump that out and put new gas in it. I've rebuilt a bunch of Hondas...every time I just went ahead and put new jets in them. It's not worth the time to keep ripping them apart and putting them back together to try and save $4-10. If you're just lazy...put a couple ounces of Seafoam in it and run a tank of gas through it.....but you better not let it sit you'll end up with more problems.

    MLK...(18-21 Jan) Who's going?

    We'll see. I want to. I'm not crazy about going out after or during the rains. The dunes have been TORN UP.

    It's like accepting shame and being so satisfied when you scratch it...

    As a pilot...I had to requalify every year. New systems, new tactics, new enemy...I had to get more training. Training and updates are a way of life for a pilot. This also applies to doctors, dentists, nurses, pretty much across the medical field. Other fields also require continued training to maintain your license and job. So why aren't teachers under this model? As mentioned...continued education should be even more important to stay up with new technology, new discoveries, new methods. Again, what other job has tenure? and what would be wrong with continued education to remain a teacher? AND...how can we evaluate teachers to better promote, compensate and retain? More importantly...how do we get teachers to get back to teaching? I see teachers always saying...they raise the kids. THAT'S NOT YOUR JOB! That's MY JOB! Having teachers undo what I instill on my kids was a constant frustration. AND...stop sending kids home with flyers telling parents how to vote! That's my vote...not yours.

    Cool deal. I need to you go back to work to pay my undervalued and reduced benefits military retirement pension and benefits.

    Teacher Strike!......., Really????

    No...I don't take the bus. I don't support their union or benefits/pay increases either. I have already admitted that I have kids and have used the public school system. I didn't say it should be unfunded, but I don't support pay and benefits increases beyond a national cost of inflation. Under obama...he requested ZERO pay increases, but Congress wrote in minimal increases of 1%-1.6% each year. What did teachers get? Congress took away their pension retirement...do teachers still ave theirs?

    Interesting idea.... Require a Masters and/or 3-5 year stint in Administrative/leadership position to gain tenure...(I don't support tenure).

    It was always easier to get a member with dependents to stay tan a single member. BUT...like I said, these weren't always the people you wanted to keep.

    Teacher Strike!......., Really????

    But it's still the same amount of work. I could explain the whole dynamic...but you're a smart guy...you know why. I always go back to the same place. The Herman Cain Flat tax for everyone. We'll all save for the most part and when people have more money...they can use to to support all these causes and programs "IF" they really mean that much to you. Shoot...Id support removing most government programs and give people back their tax dollars. That way if it's really important to you...can can buy it, fund it, pay for it. Funny..I'm sure NO money would go to immigration, homeless, and..."the children".... People will always pay for their own selfish wants and needs. It's easier to spend money on all this other crap when it's just "tax dollars" and not your money.

    Just pointing something out. My wife and I have very interesting conversations over this. I have 2 kids, she has none. AND...back in the military, service members with dependents got paid more and for what? Those people (myself included) usually took more time off to handle dependent related issues where as the single/without dependent folks got nothing.

    Teacher Strike!......., Really????

    AND... How about this....Why do people WITHOUT kids have to pay increases in taxes to pay for schools, daycare, after school programs??? People who don't have kids always get screwed on this.

    If you get hired as a math teacher...shut up and teach math. If you are hired as a government teacher...teach theory, history, FACTS...not your opinion and definitely don't bash kids for their opinions so long as they are on topic. The teacher's job is to teach and be neutral.
