There is a tree of shame at Deals Gap that has parts of bikes from wrecks hanging all over it but it really is sobering when you visit because many of the parts are from bikes where people lost their lives and their friends leaving notes saying their last goodbyes are very sad! http://www.dealsgap.com/tree.htm
For any other bikers out there please checkout this website for the best rides in your state…if your best road is not on it add it so others can enjoy!

There are a bunch of roads like that in the Blue Ridge and Smokey Mountains! My son and I ride our bikes on all of them and there are many idiots like this and much worse than this I hate to say. I have seen 18 wheeler’s stuck on these roads they are banned on blocking the entire road around sharp turns!!! There are some roads like the Tail of the Dragon where they have a death map that shows all of the deaths and where they happened on the road. http://tailofthedragonmaps.com/tail-of-the-dragon-deaths/

Shame this is the norm now! I must admit Obama has definitely changed our country…just like he said he would!
California is an illegal mexican crap hole
full of gangs and democrat losers.
Agreed. Too bad people become complacent when working around gas. It's immensely dangerous, but people do stupid things when they either forget or ignore the rules. Most mains are well marked, so it really takes a lack of concentration to do something like this. I say drug test the operator.
oops.........someone forgot to call 811.................
ABC news last night blamed it on people shooting guns. Any excuse to blame gun owners.

All she was doing was trying to catch some bream and catfish…mean old white racist policeman!

Guess he couldn’t stand to see his country be destroyed anymore!
Indeed, prayers for his family.
Recall how the Arab Spring kicked off in Algeria - one lone man decided to conduct the final form of protest and immolated himself. I wonder if we may be seeing something along the same track here?
Watch the media, if the man was of the left, it will be swept under the rug quickly enough.
Guess he's just another moron with a gun. Where was Wayne LaPierre when this happened?
Isn't that area a strictly enforced gun free zone. People are losing their minds.
March 29, 2015 at 5:54am
Absolutely! Never go into a Gun Free killing zone and carry 8,760 hours a year!

I agree! Could have turned out very bad for this little girl.
About 15 years ago my wife woke up at 2:00 am to a noise in our driveway and the 4+-year old neighbor was playing out in our driveway so she took him back over. The mom was like oh he does that.??? Funny how some people treat their children worse than we would treat our own pets!
We watched our kids like a hawk and dead bolted doors at night so kids could not wonder off.
Is your Glock29 black? Think about it.and think about this: Black people with an African heritage are really brown.
The Crayola company has confirmed this decades ago as well as all optical scientists from every branch of science.
African Americans (circa 1987) are brown and not black.
And white people are pink. It's almost like labels don't matter.

As soon as this ******* joined the Islamist they should have droned his sorry a$$ instead of searching for him losing true hero’s in the process!
Someone needs to be shot for trading the enemy for another enemy…they all should have been shot instead of trading!
This crap is just unbelievable…unbelievable that we the people just sit on our rear ends and allow this to continue time after time!

So if it were up to Smith at least 50% of society would be killed off by his death penalty law…not sure there would be too many progressive liberals left in the world by his standards if all crooks are treated as such!
I'm struggling to find the downside of your logic.
 March 24, 2015 at 4:22pm
Your government out of control…driven by hate trying to drive a wedge everywhere they can. This was driven by the racebaiters foaming at the mouth thinking this had to be done by some middle aged racist white male!
Can’t wait until 2016 to start the purge process!
 March 24, 2015 at 4:16pm
Good one Bear! People need to stop spending their money in Vegas until they do flush this crooked progressive liberal piece of crap.

Huh, the poor old mountain lion must have eaten the missing hiker and died afterwards. Hiker must have been a nasty old progressive liberal and poisoned the poor old kitty cat!

No charges? I would have had the thug arrested that stole my bike!
They do not say that the person on the bike was the thief.
Maybe he bought it from the thief and didn't know it was stolen.
Be careful about jumping to conclusions without sufficient evidence or people will think you are a liberal.
It would be nice if they included whether the person with the bike was the thief though.
The dude was scwhwiin-dled !
Local news said the one holding the gun was a retired police officer.
I'd like to think I wouldn't be balling like a baby. That was just embarrassing.
The "security guard" having no visible signs of being one, by being in uniform, or any other identifying media, just opened himself up to a possible CCL carrier driving by and mistaking him for a perp. If you have an overwhelming amount of onlookers willing to be back-up to detaining a possible criminal suspect, it's time to downplay the display of the gun, keep it at the ready, but maybe keep it low key until the authorities arrive. This goes for any CCL holder who thwarts a crime in a similar situation. Make sure you don't become a target yourself for potential CCL passersby, who just came up on the situation, and may think you to be the "bad guy", and act in accordance with that perception.
It is a fine balancing act exercising your right to carry, and avoid being mistaken for a criminal yourself, when drawing your weapon at a scene of a crime.
Be careful out there.
Amen! I hope this kid learned this lesson......if he continues his bullying, ....of course the punishments should increase exponentially until the lesson has been learned.
Good job dad.....you are going to raise a real man.
If the only way you can teach your child an important life lesson is through forced public shaming (isn't that what bullying is?), he probably learned bullying from his father in the first place.
"Kayden’s father’s punishment comes amid a harder look nationwide at the physical and psychological effects of bullying on school kids."
Oh brother. *rolleyes*
I don't know what's worse, this father or these damn kids who can't fight their own battles. It's all pretty sad to see and you wonder why we don't keep score at little league games anymore? You've got one set of kids crying and another set being "bullied" by their parents. How ironic.
as a dad of a young man, I applaud this dad...awesome. Turn your kid's problem into a learning experience for him..
Some people actually voted to let the school handle it. Lol! They breed and they breathe. Part of the problem.
I am surprised the story did not include the following "and then Child Services were called." But yes good on the father and hopefully his son will learn from this.
WOW! Just WOW! While looking at dad (with the tats and the wife beater shirt) I hardly believed he could be the same guy that came up with this! I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but when the cover fits so many stereotypes, it's hard not to. Now I know I have to be a little more careful about pre-judging people. Thanks to that dad, that's a lesson I just learned.
Some parents are bullies to their kids. They almost seem to thrive on punishing them. I hope that isn't the case here, because it may explain why his kid is a bully in the first place.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those parents who thinks you can just reason with a kid. I think it is a parent's job teach them right from wrong and to punish kids when they need it. I even think spankings have their place as well. Nevertheless, I've seen parents who can go overboard (and seem to get a perverse joy out of it). I don't know if that is the case here, but for some reason I just have a feeling it might be.
Now, I hope he remembers to tell his son how proud of him he is to take his punishment, learn from it and grow into the man that he knows he can and will be. My respect for both son and father, and may he grow to lead as a man of integrity, that learns from his father and becomes the example the father obviously thinks he can be!
Please do not air your dirty laundry.
As a parent, you are in a Leadership Position which has an implied task of being professional. This is a family matter and putting it on social media is not professional.
Bad judgement as you, the parent, are making the situation about you, with look at me I am handling this.

We should start with eliminating the IRS sites first by eliminating the department!
Yay Cruz! Just don’t be mean to the other conservative candidates.
Carl Rove will soil himself if Cruz wins!
I like Ted but come on......after 8 years of so-called Kenyan president…..Let’s turn around and elect a Canadian?
Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada. His dad was a Cuban citizen and his mother was american.
When the founders wrote the Constitution, i do not think they wanted a US president who was born in another country and only one of the parents being an american citizen….Furthermore, Ted Cruz had Canadian citizenship until just recently.
BOW DOWN TO YOUR MASTERS! THE CANADIANS ARE COMING!
We rule your Florida beaches! Our 'Blue Hair Dragoons' congest your shopping malls. And even as we speak the 'Heavy Fleetwood Division' is weaving it's way down your interstates to coagulate your transportation systems.
AND NOW THERE WILL BE A CANADIAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE! ( we promise not to burn it down again) Soon you will all be wearing toques and being polite to one another! Men will hold doors! Women will say 'Thank you'!! Maple syrup on everything ( including the Canadian bacon). Hockey Night In Canada on the oval office TV every Saturday night! William Shatner will be V.P.
CHIMO, CHIMO, CHIMO, CHIMO!
You will soon be a conquered race!
Thank you kindly.
P.S.- Cruz is a good guy. Take up the strain. . . .
Go Cruz! Great News!
Ted is most certainly a fighter, that goes without saying and would probably make a good president. That said, he has no chance of winning an election with so many Stupid Americans turning to Marxism
The "exploratory committee" thing has always been a little odd, anyway.
I am not sure that Ted Cruz is eligible under the weight of the US Constitution, but if he is eligible and if he wins the Republican nomination, I would like to run his campaign for POTUS in the General election here in Israel for American ex-pats. The Primary campaign is an entirely state-side affair. The General election is also fought amongst voters overseas. I don't just want to work for this man's campaign, I WANT TO HAVE A PART IN HELPING HIM RUN HIS CAMPAIGN!!
Glock: "Cruz-Walker". We win. America wins!
When attacked by clowns, go for the juggler.
Any Conservative is better than a rino or the America destroying democrats.
"If" there is another election...
Ted Cruz is the only hope to restore our liberties and put the fed.gov back in it's Constitutionally mandated box.
That is a big if... The pending and well designed storm of a dollar collapse the ensuing stock market chaos and then WOAR may make the next election "ill-advised". You know the whole "changing horses in the middle of a stream" BS. This has been well engineered, BO will not go quietly... The fundamental transformation is nearly complete and probably irreversible.
We must fight hard for Ted and resist RINO's and the likes of rove at every turn or it's game over patriots!
Even if he were to mobilize the elusive evangelicals, the opposition from the left and center-right would crush him like an ant. Many of you rather lose with your principles than compromise to win. That is a very selfish philosophy.
Ted has one major advantage overf every single candidate. He hasn't compromised, back peddled, played voting games to get backing from RINOs, flip flopped, or voted non conservatively. He hasn't backed down from anyone on either side of the isle. The only one in the Senate. Even Gowdy managed to be out of town for Bohner's vote but admitted he'd have picked him. I think if we end up with Jeb Bush or Huckabee I'll voter for the democrat if there's no decent third party.
Oh thank you political Gods. All i need now is Sarah Palin to announce she is running....
You guys just gave away the 2016 election.
Cruz in a debate will be laughable. a disgrace waiting to happen.
First ad ran for 2016 race Cruz juxtaposed with Senator McCarthy.
Thank you Ted Cruz you just made election season the greatest spectacle ever !
New drinking game. every time Cruz flip-flops you drink. hospitals will be full of alcohol poisoning.
This is perhaps some of the best news I have heard all weekend.
So the birther party wants to put up a Canadian? So the party that ranted Obama was too inexperienced to be president as a one time senator is willing to support a one time senator for president? So the party against illegal immigration is willing to nominate a candidate who is only in this country because his father illegally immigrated into Texas in the 50′s after fighting with Fidel Castro to install communism in Cuba? LOL. Cruz has a snowball chance in Cuba of getting the vote of anyone with an IQ over 42. You guys are hysterical. I could take over The Daily Show just with the material posted on The Blaze
I will support Ted Cruz whole heartedly in 2016, but none of the mushy middle maggots, cultist, ex-preachers, or single people of questionable gender!!! (you figure out who I am referring to.) or another bush thats all we need that and a new a--hole
The second best take from this story is the fact that RINOs, Libs, Dems and progs had to work hard today at keeping up their trolling mission.
Ted Cruz is my absolute favorite Senator. I have the highest respect and regard for him.
But could someone explain how he is running for the POTUS? He was born in Canada was he not?
The Constitution says "No person execpt a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States."
Forgive me but if Cruz was born in Canada how can he be a natural born citizen? Am I missing something? If anyone can help me with this thanks.
No more Bush's, no more Clintons!!!!!! Cruz 2016!!
Cruzin' 2016 !!!
Ted Cruz would be the first true republican president since Reagan.
