According to our state propaganda (including Schoolhouse Rock), there was no country or nation until 1787 - I suppose before then there were just Iroquois, French voyageurs and, oh right, some pesky redcoats that were fought off by militias and (on one rare occasion) by George Washington. There was, however, a group of "founding fathers" who didn't think the Constitution was such a great idea - if you didn't go to government schools you might have heard of them - the Anti-Federalists. Among them were odd fellows like Patrick Henry, who prophetically warned against centralized government. Jefferson was in France, but also had his doubts.

    I know what you are thinking. You're thinking that if we could just get back to our original relationship, things will be beautiful again. You're thinking that he didn't really mean to beat you and to steal your shit. You're thinking that you had a good thing going, and you don't want it to end.

    You're thinking that this time, things will be different.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
