You're tracking that Muslims aren't too hip on pork, right? I can see the relation. If nothing else, I hope that was their intent. It would at least explain the horrible design.

Many Muslims are appalled at the sight of Christians freely eating pork. They are repulsed by the sight of a pig just as much as the early Children of Israel were under the Mosaic Law, which continues to affect the lives of millions of Jewish people still today. The pig was clearly forbidden in the Old Testament:

And the pig, though it has a split hoof completely divided, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you.
Leviticus 11:7-8
A similar prohibition is also found in the Qur'an:

He hath only forbidden you dead meat, and blood, and the flesh of swine, and that on which any other name hath been invoked besides that of God.
Surat-ul Baqara (2):173

I'm thinking it more about the organizers.

I dunno. Burn gas we import from the Mideast - and put more money in their pocket - to prove we're pissed at the way they treat us.
It may make you feel better, but it ain't gonna mean squat.
Think about it.
Do you give a **** about a million Muslims raging in downtown Mecca?
Won't change your mind a bit.
And it won't change theirs.
Damn silly if you ask me.

You do know that we don't buy hardly any Arab oil these days? Right?

The US is on the way to becoming the largest producer of petroleum in the world.

Thermodyne 08-26-2013 09:45 PM

I was just thinking that we should actually make sure that no one goes hungry down there.

Stake out all the public pick-nick areas around the mall and have some pit pork cooking on every grill. Especially up wind from them. Not as good a a trailer full razorbacks set loose, but probably even more offensive to them.

My theory, and I'm by no means a conspiracy theorist, but, I believe the idea was/is to hold onto all our resources as long as possible and run the middle east dry. I also believe we have oil up the yingyang. The problem now is, Wall Street is heavily involved and with trillion dollar companies that buy and sell oil without physically touching it, then simultaneously manipulate gas futures, we don't have a snowballs chance in hell to see reasonable prices again.

Ya, I get all that hiangle, they even hold them in very high honor, But that pic/cartoon has nothing derogatory or objectionable about pigs. One could take it as calling bikers pigs too. Now, if they put one on a spigot instead of a scoot. Hanging in a slaughter house. Being hunted by the likes of "deliverance" , a huge table of bikers chowing down on swine..............then maybe they made a point.

Two million bikers to DC? I don't think HD gets that many bikes for their anniversary celebrations. I'll bet logistics would be a friggin nightmare.

HD bikers (real or otherwise) have been portrayed as swine for a very long time. What's PC got to do with that?

Just ask my X, she'll talk you deaf about how I am an asshole swine.

Guilty as charged, I'm swine.

But this pig will be as far away from that as I can be.

They are going to stage out of the DC Harley Store. It's not even in DC, it's in Southern MD. I've been there when there were at most a few hundred scooters, with peeps coming and going. It was a disaster. And to get into DC from Southern MD is a real chore. No direct access to the mall, several merges and a lot of lane changes due to left side ramps. Or about 50 traffic lights if they go in by the old road. And PG county police are not the most helpful peeps out there. If they get more than 200 scooters, there will be serious issues. And if they don't get special treatment, IE a green light express, a lot of the scooters will be overheating before they get close to the mall. I've made that run it's not a relaxed roll.

From what I am seeing so far, it a real amateur hour. There is an unused stadium (old RFK) right off the east end of the mall. It has enough ramps and access roads to stage a 1000 scooters without opening the parking lots. Personally, I would be on the phone with the Armory board and some Congressional offices till I got permission to use it.

There is also the issue of no permit from DC as of last night. Considering who already has a permit for that day, there is a real chance that the application will be refused, or routed away from the Muslims.

A Hog cookin sure is making me hungry I might would ride that far for some tasty piggly wiggly! Traffic will suck for sure.

Ahar 08-27-2013 10:31 PM

I'll settle for pulled pork pizza.
Maybe Ill fold it and call it a canole.
