Biker culture came to the Vatican on Sunday as Pope Francis blessed thousands of Harley-Davidsons and their riders celebrating the manufacturer's 110th anniversary with a loud parade and plenty of leather.

I don't believe in giving to charities because in reality they will never find a cure, because if they do, too many people will be out of work, imo. Also in my opinion, most of that money given for research or to find a "cure", is to feed some fat cat that sits behind a desk, we will call him the CEO!
So you don't believe in raising money locally for food banks, helping with funeral expenses, or to buy a headstone for a fellow biker. Habitat for Humanity where money is donated to help a family locally buy a house that was built without taxpayer money??
Really?????

As for the blessing it's for the riders not the bikes. Just like many bikers have Guardian Bells on their bikes,,,just for luck during bike season..

Almost all states do this, it's a very kind and nice gesture.

The new Pope stands at the Vatican, waves his arm in the sign of the cross and says, "All you daygos get off the lawn!"

No. These sort of people that rely on food banks, homes for habitat, need to get a job, and purchase a home the same way others do. These are the same people that rely on others to support them, and family, and actually think welfare is a right.
If I help someone it is not through a charity, it is personal, then that way I know they are getting the full benefit, and some fat cat is not getting a share.
Bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahaha! !!

Kinda' like a cyber-charity for an imaginary sick child?

One day we'll all learn not to click on anything that he posts.

The ironic thing is - even he doesn't know what he's f*cking up.

The thing is Dawn most of them do hold down a 40hr a week job and still can't put food on the table.

They are building a habitat for Humanity Home not far from me. NO taxpayers dollares, all volunteers, and building supplies donated to help a single working mom with 3 small children all with medical needs. It's no fault of hers her children have medical issues.
I think it's a wonderful beautiful thing that she'll be able to have a home for her and her children...
You're giving to the wrong kind of charities.

"Dawn" (LOL) aka harley-hunni, aka Beached Baby, aka 100 more monikers, doesn't believe in charity to others. She's too cheap to give even a penny to anyone. She's made that clear many times. And empathy with others who are down on their luck without fault of their own is completely alien to that unpleasant creature.
I know about this woman and her children, she works for everything she gets and doesn't expect handouts and doesn't collect welfare. Her home will be something the community wants to do for her because of all she does.

We're all different I guess thats what makes this crazy world we live in go around..:)
