May 15, 2012 Assaulted On Mount Mitchell - Training Ride

Marion To Mitchell - Training Ride

My 32nd ASSAULT ON MITCHELL



.

I'll ride the Assault on Mount Mitchell Monday – tomorrow..

.

It’s just another lonely day.

.

Not much different than 22,000 other days I’ve had.

.

I’ll be with a couple thousand people..

They won’t really know I’m there.

My physical illusion will be recognized by some.

Nobody will see me.

Nobody will entertain the notion that I’m riding in protest of the endless spilling of blood by our country – today I protest the arrogance and indifference of my own country.

.

Today I protest the dehumanizing of too much.

Even the Assault on Mount Mitchell is dehumanized.

.


.

"It is perfectly possible for a man to be out of prison, and yet not free - to be under no physical constraint and yet to be a psychological captive, compelled to think, feel and act as the representatives of the national state, or of some private interest within the nation, wants him to think, feel and act.

"The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people. His servitude is strictly objective."

Brave New World Revisited, Aldous Huxley, 1958

.


.

"...there is a power so organized, so subtle, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it." --- President Woodrow Wilson

.


The Assault On Mitchell “board” broke their own rules.

The Spartanburg Freewheelers broke their own rules.

.

I'll ride it bandit for the first time in 32 years.


This is my 32nd ASSAULT.

.

I’ve ridden the Assault more than anyone.

.

I was left off the invitation to register.

.

The "board" of the Assault on Mitchell treated me as a criminal.

I emailed several times. No reply.

I posted on the Assault's facebook page. No reply.

I found a phone number on the Freewheelers' website.

I called the number. The person answering was rude until I hung up the phone on mu end.

I gave up.

Days later a guy calls and his main goal is for me to SHARE THE BLAME - and - I was accused of getting the phone number nefariously.

.

I went to Vietnam.

I've been accused before of crap I never did.

The Spartanburg Police have already COVERED UP AN ACCIDENT THAT HAS RUINED MY HEALTH.

But hey - why don't these Freewheelers and Assault board members sue me for writing the truth here.

What's the worse that can happen?

Will they exclude me from the ride.

They already did that and stressed me about to the point I CANNOT TRUST THE SPARTANBURG FREWHEELERS WITH MONEY.

No.

Riders who can't do the ride on their on - they sign up.

Some racers who never intend to follow the rules - of - no support, no ride but the bus off the mountain, etc.

But some of the spoiled children will join the Freewheelers and pay $25 club dues.

That ensures that they get to pay your $135 registration fee.

That's $160 X 1000 people plus the Marion ride plus other baubles and trinkets for sale.

Yes - I was told the ASSAULT ON MITCHELL is a PRODUCT.

..

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS

I know the cost of buses, bananas, the cost of stuff that this point to point ride up the tallest mountain on the East Coast of America.

I know it runs into thousands to put this ride on.

.

But as a man stole the Burnsville Metric from me years ago - I said then and now -

NO BIKE RIDE IS WORTH A SINGLE PERSON.

NO BIKE RIDE IS WORTH TAKING THE DIGNITY OF ONE PERSON.

.

EVEN IF THAT PERSON IS ME.



acountability

Meanwhile Americans worship the spoiled idiots of cycling like George Hincapie. George, Lance - Michael Jordan, etal - will NEVER make a political statement because George Hincapie and the ilk are money hounds.

Lance and George cannot be political.

Why does money have to shut up?

Why can't money speak for the silent?

We have a sick country.

America is out of balance - horribly.

A more equal society is a more healthy society.

But we've been told the story of Jesus, etc.

.

.

Meanwhile the "board" of the Assault will give Hincapie money to ride.

The Assault on Mitchell is now a "PRODUCT".

These morons give to the rich - and make the ASSAULT ON MITCHELL IMPROBABLE for so many.

The ASSAULT brings in hundreds of thousands of dollars every year.

Where does it go?

Is it given to pros just to drive the price up to GIVE MONEY TO PROS TO DRIVE THE PRICE UP TO GIVE MONEY TO PROS...? By the way - I don't trust any "board". Some bike clubs net thousands every year. Where does the money go? The world bleeds. Most people are PUNISHED ECONOMICALLY - but where does all the money go?

.


The Assault on Mitchell broke their own rules.

.

They are in violation of their own rules.

.

So Monday - I ride bandit.

.

I may ride all the way back to Spartanburg and my truck.

.

I'll drive to Spartanburg Monday morning early.

.

I'll ride to Mitchell.

.

I'll probably ride back.

.

I do not want a republican to help me.

.

Republicans have helped enough.

.

I do not want a democrat to help me.

.

Democrats have helped enough.

.

Since I am bandit - I have no transportation back to Spartanburg.

.

Because I am riding bandit - I will not take any food, water, or energy of any kind from the Spartanburg Freewheelers and their aid stations/rest stops.

.

I rode to the top of Mitchell on Tuesday.

.

I hid fuel for "my" ride along the route.

.

.

I'm just toxically full of rhetoric, lies, and fake people.

.

I am disgusted with the MURDER OF HIGH-SCHOOL KIDS – domestic and foreign..

.

I now despise most Americans for their apathy and ignorance of history.

.

America is polluted with lies - America cannot keep up with the present lies much less history.

.

And what will change from "this" declaration?

.

.

.

No - I haven't been.

.

Nothing will change.

.

I am alone in thought and spirit.

.

I have no "like minds" because Americans have not a clue.

.

I have no friend- who reads my "work".

.

I write because that is all the "work" I have.


I no longer have a bike shop.


I no longer have an "inn".


The illegal system stole ALL my property and America still tries to steal my soul and dignity.

America stole my life.

Or has my compassion destroyed my life?

So be it.


I have NO canvas on which to paint.


My life has been stolen.

The worst was the removal of dignity.

.

.

I would have more friends if I had more money.

.

The fewer friends a man has – the stronger the character, resolve, faith.

.

Cycling is an aristocratic sport.

.

Who can afford tri-athlons?

.

Who can afford wheels at thousands of dollars a whack?

.

No.

1% of America owns most of America.

All voters are just rubber-stamping murder.

98% of Americans tolerate this tyranny.


I will not join you all.


I will not pretend there will be anything but the murder of our high-school graduates who do not go to colleges and their gated communities.


I am alone.


Americans save the whales, owls, businessmen, bankers, OJ Simpson, gays, the institutionalized religious, religious child molesters, criminals, lawyers.


America will not save the VETERAN.



I am living proof.


I will not bow to miss manners etiquette while the institutionalized educated vote FOR WAR EVERY ELECTION.


Lesser of two evils?


America - yes - liberals - are rubber-stamping war, poverty, slavery, prostitution, etc. because liberals are an arm of the republican party.


Things are as they are because you - everybody I know - you want them this way.


.

Everything about me would smell sweeter if I had more money.

.

We can pretend that things are different.

.

.

So - I can go to war.

I can stand up for TRUTH, GOD, the WEAK, those without voices.

I can stand against tyranny, war, injustice, murder.

Without money - who wants to come to Holt Street?


So it's really easy for me to tell everybody to “have a nice day”..


Nothing will change.

No woman has the moral fiber to stand with me.

Very few men do.

.

I love the benevolent God.

.

I love compassion, mercy, forgiveness, truth.

.

Columbia, Charleston, Asheville, Durham, Mitchell County, New York City - regardless of the type of ignorance - it is still self-imposed ignorance.

.

If I had cut my hair and joined SOME of the secret societies in America - I'd have more friends.

If I sit quietly while prison and bike rides become businesses for the eugenically improved elite - I'll fit in.

.

.

But I will not fit into groups, clubs, and other means of emasculating the man, the warrior, the patriot - while liberals and republicans sacrifice - really - nothing.

.

So I will cherish my alone-liness.


I will delight that I am of the 1 or 2% on the bicycle,


I will rejoice that in my knowledge, recovery from injury, durability regardless of consistent physical and mental assault - I am one in an infinite number.


But - I appear to be alone.

.

And - am I?

.

I am not all that is in the world.

.

There is truth out there.

.

Regardless of this realm - there is truth out there.

.

Until I find company in my truth - I will not tolerate murder like the United States of Apathy.

.

Voting against or for gays to be taxable like married people?

.

To punish CONTINUOUSLY THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE ALONE?

.

Isn't this also at the same time punishing VETERANS?

.

How many Veterans live alone?

.

How many will be homeless?

.

How many Veterans will commit suicide - like Stanley Patrick?

.

.

Who has sacrificed?


A soldier is experimented on. DONE DEAL IT IS SO.


A soldier tests weapons.

Weapons are tested on soldiers.

.

A soldier is supposed to be cared for after his war contribution.

.

A bumper sticker on a car is just more lip.

.

A soldier is experimented on at the VA - DONE DEAL IT IS SO.


A soldier's health is ignored in a Veterans Hospital Triage from hell.

.

50% of marriages fail.

Of the second marriages - 70% fail.

.

.

Vote!

.

200 years from now - if you keep voting - our poor kids will kill other poor kids and the privileged will have hiking paths in their gated communities.

.

And 200 years from now as when the Veterans after the American Revolution could still NOT VOTE - things will remain the same.

.


I participate in life as I can.

The roads are all I have really.

I would walk.

But even on public roads mister redneckous slams on his brakes in front of me.

Redneckous throws stuff.

Red runs me off the road.

Red hits me - almost kills me - but the police aid and abet the murderer.

.

That is what hitting me with a car intentionally is - attempted murder.

.


Yes - things would go easier for me if I would only bow down and worship Satan as Jesus was tempted thousands of years ago.

.

But this is all temporary and I hear hell is eternal.

.

It is all eternal.

.

And I will not slip down the slippery slope of lies.

.

I just process data.

.

I seem to be alone.

.

But I am anchored in facts that people cannot fathom.

.

I'm riding my 32nd Assault On Mitchell - ALONE - IN PROTEST - MONDAY.

.

It may be 200 miles.

.

I'm taking lights.

.

I'm bandit. I’m unregistered.

.

I may die.

.

It may be pain all day.

.

I may see my pick-up truck in Spartanburg after dark.

.

Throwing up may be in the plans.

.

Weather may send a hell or two.

.

But I will not bow to the sacred cow.

.

I see NO republican man or woman with the guts to do the right thing.

.

I see No democrat man or woman with the moral fiber to do what is necessary.

.

I have spent most of a century alone in actuality, thought, and spirit.

.

I cannot trust anybody to do the right thing.

.

I will not abet the ruin of the planet,

the ruin of our youth,

the ruin of justice,

the ruin of truth.

.

Vote!

.

I'll ride up Mitchell for the 32nd time ALONE because I am a very small insignificant VETERAN FOR PEACE.

.

..

My goal is not to alienate people - but my ultimate goal has to be the truth.

.

I believe America's CIA, etal, have killed thousands - maybe hundreds of thousands of CUBANS.

.

VOTING IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE THE WESTERN WORLD'$ AND BU$INE$$E$' VENGEANCE ON A SMALL COUNTRY NAMED CUBA.

Cuban cyclists cannot come to compete in America.

American cyclists cannot go to Cuba to race Cuban bike racers.

.

But Lance Livelarge and Georgio Hincrappie are on it.

.

Because they are heroes.

.

They are in fact - republicans and democrats.

.

If this is the land of the free and home of the brave - it's time other people actually stepped up to the real plate.

.

Unheralded, alone, I'll ride to Mitchell because voting in this fixed society changes nothing I care about.

Next week a cyclist will be run off the road. The cops are “on it”.

.

I am eternally against the needless spilling of blood.

.

I am against false imprisonment.

.

I am against slavery.

.

I am against the imbalance that makes America and the world ill.

.

I am against the suppression of truth and history.

.

Put my head with Geronimo's head.

.

I will walk the walk, ride the ride, and I will stand alone.

.

Next week the Freewheeler record books will say my record is tied.

We know the truth.

.


Be safe.


Happy trails,

~Micky Dee~

.

I met Doc today, Sunday, day before the Assault on Mitchell.

Will these spoliled racing children like Hincapie, Armstrong, younameanelite, etc, - will they ever pick up a bearded man?

Sorry if I'm leaving out your basketball player or you.

Hey Lance, George - the guy may be walking near 10 miles to church because AGENT ORANGE doesn't let him drive anymore.

Doc was in Nam.

Why don't you folks get to know Doc.

We're all lucky to be here and war has left a scar.

Why do so many of us appear the same?

Why are we ignored?

Doc found the Lord.

I found the Lord and my bicycle.

Stanley Patrick put a bullet in his head.

America - take part in service to your country.

I am for a benevolent God.

I am for a benevolent world.

I have to be against America's apathy that is also abetting murder around our world.

We are our brother's keeper and I will not be told otherwise.

.

My God has spoken.

..

Tomorrow my God tells me to go to the mountain.

.

Micky, your writing is brilliant as always, but I do worry about how much sadness comes through.

I´ve pressed your vote ´up´button plus all the others except funny.

I wish there was something I could do apart from wish you well and hope that somehow you enjoy the ride tomorrow(Monday)

God doesn´t sleep, though. He sees everything. I pray for you and other veterans, who have suffered injustice after serving their country.

Love you, man, as always. Take care on the ride and let me know how it went after you recover from the day.

ah, mister dee, i hope all is well. I pray you find peace. i read your great words and tears fall from my eyes knowing that true men of this world are the ones with scars, and somehow, still allow their hearts to feel the pain and sadness, instead of allowing the scars to numb, and isolate. your words move people. please take care.and ... well, as strange as this may sound, thank you.

I can't see why you could not enter this assault on Mount Mitchell.

I also think your words are falling into a black hole on Hub pages. They seem to lean one way and I am not in a hurry any longer to write on here.

But take care Micky Dee.

I can't pretend to know what you know, Micky, since I haven't seen what you've seen or experienced what you have. I know that I can't watch the news without crying, yet I find it impossible to turn my head and pretend it isn't so. I once worked for a chiropractor, who owned a home with an elevator and a summer home in Millionaire's Cove in Lake of the Ozarks. I lost count of the fancy sports cars he and his wife enjoyed. He advised that I do what he and the Mrs. did...turn the news OFF! In order to keep his "positive" attitude, he put blinders on. He was purposely oblivious to suffering. It turned him off. When he shoved his money clip with a wad of $100 bills under my nose and told me he could have any woman he wanted, I told him "not this one". He felt I wasn't a team player because I had no desire to join his harem.

There was a time, Micky, when I trusted everyone. The last two years have changed all that. The small company that laid me off right after my divorce, often told me I was "family" during the 13-years I spent working for them. Although letting me go required my supervisor to install an automated phone system, they did not feel a need to give a "heads up" to "family" before they let me go. I hadn't even moved into my new digs when I got the news that leveled me. I avoided the "insult to injury" in their mandated escort out the door by grabbing the few personal items that mattered to me and walked out alone. And, alone, is the operative word, Micky Dee. You nailed it, brilliantly.

Hiya Mickey- dude!, the primadonna's will always follow the cash, but then does 99% of the Western world. But they ain't got the history you own with your worn out frame- or as many untold stories on and off the battlefield.

The biggest ones are inside the skull,that's the one which is the hardest. Don't allow the boll---s of today live inside your head rent free.

As much as i love watching the bikey events and the tour- not one of those guys would give me a nod out on the road cos' i look like a bike tramp even though i might be on another 3000 kms ride, cos im not in the money 'gang', but then again it just shows you cant judge by looks. Then again those guys wouldn't shi- in a ditch or bath in a cold river for 20 odd days, get baked in a desert for days or ride through long days in the rain then climb nto a damp sleeping bag.

And they ain't seen the stuff you have seen in your life.

Your pic at the front is still my favorite bikey pic, and you will always be my bikey hero Mickey dee!

Even though you probably helped me decide to just do another 3000 kms a week back-even though i promised my girl i wouldnt. Haha.(almost fell down a 30 foot well in my sleep)

Hello Micky,

can't pretend to understand the politics of the bikers world it seems a bit elitist ?

Enjoyed your writing as usual but the 'Buggers' love the unhappiness they create.

So we must grin and p.ss them off ..it'll be a good one who'll grind me down..

Bet you could write a good tale about your bike shop or have you done so yet !!!

very best to you micky,

jandee
