history repeats itself

"Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be a revolution BEFORE MORNING.”

-Andrew Jackson, 1832

off to Pure Austin tommorrow to start getting officially trained. Tired of the boom bust cycle of riding a lot, getting stuck in a release that takes forever and losing fitness gains. Goal is to get back to my 2006 weight or less, and get enough cardio fitness and strength to be competitive in the spring TMBRA series in either SS open or sport, and eventually try some Cat 5 road racing.
