"We Don't Do Fear!"

If you watch the news or read newspapers, you are probably scared stiff about the condition of the world and the ineptness of its leaders. I would like to quote a full-page ad that was placed in the USA Today by Harley-Davidson a while back. I cut it out, framed it in an antique wood frame, and hung the quote on my office wall to remind me that fear really does suck!

"Over the last 100 years in the saddle, we've seen wars, conflicts, depression, recession, resistance, and revolutions. We've watched a thousand hand-wringing pundits disappear in our rear-view mirror. But, every time, this country has come out stronger than before, because chrome and asphalt put distance between you and whatever the world can throw at you. Freedom and wind outlast hard times, and the rumble of an engine drowns out all the spin on the evening news. If 105 years have proved one thing, it's that fear sucks and it doesn't last long!"

Oh, about those inept world leaders. Whatever happened to running someone out of town on a rail all tarred and feathered?

I'm just saying,
