026: The Three B’s of Motorcycle Clubs


From the Korea where Harley Mania continues to sweep the nation and from the state where nobody can keep track of how many motorcycle clubs there are, this is MēMē Call. In this episode, Paul and Wayne dissect the subculture that is the American Motorcycle Club Community, and they do it with respect so that they don’t wake up dead.

Letters from the Second Civil War (28:11)

 

It was the worst of times. It was the Trump card of times. The battle lines had been drawn as long as the party lines. Father against daughter; mother against son. No quarter was given. As the great prophet Alex Jones foretold, no one saw it truly coming to pass. But, with a president who broke all of Sir Elton John’s records, come to pass it did. How we all survived, no one can know.
What we do have are letters from that pitch black period in our history. That dreadful, Second Civil War.
