Meanwhile south of the border Obama's Army of Luddites push another half baked idea to make the USA more like some sad commie shithole.
Transportation Department Embraces Bikes, and Business Groups Cry Foul
“This is the end of favoring motorized transportation at the expense of nonmotorized.”
Now having visited various American Cities I have noticed that some of the sidewalks are on par with say Laos. However, there were also many places I wouldn't want to walk, or bike or even drive into for that matter. But that aside to make something equal which is not is typical of the backwards thinking of Hippies.
Toronto has a policy not unlike what is suggested here and it's nightmarish. Less than 10 percent of the traffic gets huge funding for "bike paths" which means they paint a line on the road making it smaller. The bike-nazis, most of which should be riding a broom, pedal about like the Over Lords of Tomorrowland disregarding all rules of traffic, riding on sidewalks when in suits them, and going into a pious rage when a motorist doesn't notice them. This usually happens when they ride up into a drivers "blind spot". You know, that place where you might not see A TRUCK coming up behind you. But all drivers are some how expected to see them or hear them ringing their pathetic little bells inside a running car.
Jesu Christi, help us. The one thing that is most annoying about these idiots is that they are as self-important and bossy as they are clueless. No wonder so many go of them go into teaching.
